It’s May, here’s an update!

Hi, folks! April was a pretty good month for me, and I give you all the thanks for it! I have lots of cool polishes and things coming up over the next few months, so please stick around and tell your friends! 😀

As I said in my last post, I’ll be releasing two polishes every month (except on months where I do a full release), and I released May’s a little early because I was really excited about them!

During the month of May, you can get 2 dollars off if you buy them together!  After May, you will still be able to buy them singly, for awhile anyway.  I’m still thinking about how long I want to keep the monthly colors in the shop after their month is done. In the meantime, though, check these out! I love them (I know, I say that about all of them lol)! I have a soft spot for pale pinks, and I love pink and grey together.

What’s up for BeeFae Cosmetics this month? Well, I’m finishing up June’s 2 colors (Wait till you see them!), and I’m working on the next full set.  I’m also working on vinyl stencils for nail art that I could have in the shop before the end of the month. 🙂

The other thing I’m doing this month is putting the Bramblefae Etsy shop into vacation mode for May and possible June.  Funnily enough, I’ve done that for last 5 years, so I could get ready for the ren faire season, but with the closing of my local faire, this year, I’m not doing that.  But, I’m vacationing that shop while I focus on BeeFae for a bit and figure out the next direction for the Bramblefae Empire (haha).

However! I’m still more than happy to take commissions for wire work, just email me, or tweet me or something. 🙂

Lastly! Now that you folks are actually getting BeeFae polish into your hot little hands, I’d love to see your nails! I’d love to hear what you think and if you get a chance, I’d really love it if you could leave me some feedback on Etsy!

I hope flowers are blooming wherever you are and I’ll talk to ya’ll soon!

BeeFae’s (tentative) Release Schedule

Now that the Etsy shop is up and going, I feel like I want to let you folks know a bit about where I want to go for the rest of the year. 🙂

While I work toward getting to a place were I can develop new colors and put out new polishes whenever the mood hits me, for now, I’m going to do releases in bits and pieces.

The plan is to release 2 more full sets of six polishes this year (Tentatively in July and October) and 2 polishes per month in between those, with potential surprises here and there. Like, I’m working on a good black and a good white, and I’ll likely plop those in whenever they’re ready. 🙂

On that note, I’ve released May’s color pair early-You can get them here and here!

I’m also going to add 5ml bottles of polish to the shop in May because I know some folks want to try colors before they buy a big bottle. (I’m still fiddling with labeling. 🙂 )

And! In May I’ll start offering a custom color service. My idea is to create custom colors for folks who need special gifts (Weddings, friends, Tuesday. 😀 ). I’ll give that its own post.

Lastly, I would love input from you folks! Tell me how you like the polishes so far, tell me what I could do better, tell me what colors you’d like to see!

And now for something completely different

Hi there folks! As I mentioned in my last blog post, I’ve been working on something new, and it’s finally time to begin sharing that with you.

I’m actually really nervous about how ya’ll will react, but I am also super excited about it. 😀

I’d like to introduce you all to BeeFae Cosmetics. 🙂 Although, for now, it’s just going to be nail polishes. (I keep telling myself, “One thing at a time, B.” *grin*)  The plan is to launch officially the week of April 3rd, but now that things are officially a go, I wanted to start sharing the journey with ya’ll from testing all the way through to launch. 🙂

This is basically an offshoot of my work as Bramblefae, meaning they will exist side by side rather than one or the other. I’m not changing anything about how Bramblefae Boutique is running. I’m just adding something new, too.

Over the coming weeks, I’ll have an FAQ, and I’ll probably have several polls about all kinds of things.  But for now, I’m looking to build up a pool of folks willing to do some testing for me when I need it. 🙂

So, if you’re interested, please fill out this form. 😀

And if you haven’t already, follow me on Instagram and Twitter (or check out the feeds on the right side of this page!) for the best updates on this new venture and all my jewelry news!

Lastly, I really look forward to hearing what ya’ll think about this. ❤

Time for some news!

I hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of 2017. I know I am definitely looking forward to what the new year will bring.

The last year has been a time of change for me in a lot of ways, as I’m sure it has been for a lot of you.  The biggest bit of change for me was the end of the relatively long running Enchanted Lakes Ren Faire, which was my home faire, and biggest event for Bramblefae Boutique.  I’ll admit that I spent a few months adrift, creatively.

In November, I helped open a boutique-style shop in my town called Sassafras & Sage, and with that, I remembered how much I love creating things, and now I’m overflowing with creativity, ideas and new things.

Which leads us to the first bit of news-I’ll be updating the Etsy shop over the next week with some new things I’ve been working on. Working in the shop has structured my time in such a way that I am able to work on projects “of my heart”, basically. The kind of creative whimsy that drew me to jewelry design in the first place.

This current bit, the stuff I’ll be adding over the next week, is pretty themed.

Out of the Sea, from whence I came will encompass a handful of one of a kind pieces, some can be considered every day pieces, but some, like this crown, are a lot more special occasion whimsy (Although, it’d make me super happy for someone to make this an every day crown! 😀 ). These will get their own post after I’ve gotten some pictures taken and gotten everything posted to Etsy.

While I am looking forward to doing more one of a kind pieces, I also want to make it very clear that I am still very open for commissions and custom work.  ANYTHING you see in my Etsy shop, or my Instagram photos or on Pinterest even, I would be happy to help create something truly unique for you.  Commissions and custom work are some of my favorite things because I love helping you folks have a creative hand in something that you’ll treasure.

The last bit of news that I have right now is that I am probably going to phase out the Bramblefae Boutique Facebook page.  Over the last year it has kinda shown itself to, basically, be more trouble than it’s worth for me. 🙂 I have a far better response on Twitter and Insta, and I feel more like I’m building/ being a part of a community in those places.  So, please, if you don’t already, give me a follow on Twitter or Instagram, I’m bramblefae pretty much everywhere. 🙂

In the next month or so, I’ll have some more news to share with you folks. I’m not ready to talk about it yet, but I am really excited about this possibility, so look forward to that as well!

I hope all of you have years full of wonder and love and I look forward to sharing some of my wonder and love with you all. ❤

Things are a bit slow

I know things are a bit slow lately.  I haven’t given the Etsy shop a good update in a while, although I am still (always!) taking commissions. It’s not that I’m not working on things, because I am! 😀

I’ve got one more event this season at the end of the month, and I’m prepping for that, and there’s a thing I’m doing.  I really really wanna tell everyone about it, but I am waiting until I have all my ducks in a row for it.   I promise, the moment everything is ready I will shout it from all the social media!

I'm trying more intricate techniques. :D
I’m trying more intricate techniques. 😀

This week, it’s super hot (Clearly that’s the case, the moment we take our window air conditioner out for the year. :p ), so I’m doing small things in the studio, working in spurts. Mostly finishing half done projects. 😀  So now’s a great time to commission me if there’s something you want!

Enjoy your September folks, and I will keep ya’ll updated on new stuff as I can!
