VERY rapid delivery! I will enjoy using this exceptionally beautifully crafted chaplet in my devotions. I appreciate the care and artistry that went into its creation. Excellent and reliable seller!

Beautiful, beautiful!!! Arrived on time, as I eagerly awaited. I LOVE cuffs, and these are SO SO cool because you have at least 4 different possibilities. Every day I wear something, a cuff with one of my earings attached, just the cuff, one ear, two ears, awesome. Well worth the money. The only thing (and I believe they are working on the alloy in the silver to make it stronger) I notice, and so am VERY careful if I have to bend them, is the silver is very thin. I wear nothing but turquoise and silver, and this definitely needs to be a little stronger. I would recommend to anyone!

I'm so excited about this metal purse frame! I know it's Victorian and I play medieval, but anachronism is in the name of our group, and I'm going there! I cannot wait to play with this absolutely perfect little piece! Fast shipping, great seller, will buy from again!

About

Palace Gallery has been in business for 25 years as a website and by traveling to SCA events under the name of Gipsy Peddler.

My daughter and I make and sell Italian Renaissance Clothing and Accessories to historical reenactors and professional performers. We specialize in list-legal rapier armor which is sold under the name of Gipsy Peddler, the oldest division of our company.

Our products have appeared in weddings, theatrical productions, Renaissance fairs and music festivals. We even have a rosary in a museum exhibit in the Netherlands!

We are now traveling to only one event a year which is a large international SCA event in Pennsylvania called Pennsic.

As a result of limited exposure, we have decided to open this Etsy shop, not only to offer our regular fare but also as a way to reduce our stock of items that are being discontinued and are on clearance.

I have always been an artist! I've worked in many mediums, from pen and ink drawings for books to costumes for historical enthusiasts. My works have been in exhibits, museums and theaters.

When I joined the SCA in 1990, I was naturally drawn to the Arts and Science portion of the society and I have the privilege of being a Laurel for my work in Renaissance Dress Accessories and have taught many classes on the wide range of items this general category covers.

Making accessories became a natural evolution in my research and desire to make an accurate period ensemble because many of the items needed just were not available, especially things like "fleafurs" and "flag fans" so I decided to make them myself.

Then, about 10 years ago, jewelry became my focus and has grown into a separate entity. I have also just started a website called Jagwire Jewelry (and another Esty store!) which has the jewelry that doesn't fit into the historical aspect of our business except for a few pieces in the New World Treasures and Ancient Echoes - Egyptian sections.

We hope you enjoy our products as much as we love researching and making them!
