What’s going on at Sihaya Designs?

The shop has been quiet for a little bit, but trust me, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes!

First of all, I have received notice that I was accepted to vend at the Spoutwood Farm May Day Fairie Festival in Glen Rock, PA. I am over the moon! My bellydance troupe, Transcendence Tribal, has performed at Spoutwood for the past few years (under our sneaky pseudonym of The Fairy Ring Dance Collective). I have had so many people tell me that I should apply to vend, as well, because of the popularity of my Fairy Wing Jewelry. This year, I did apply, made it through the jury, and am so excited to be counted among the amazing artisans on-site. If you are on the East Coast, you should come to the festival, which runs May 3-5th this year.

Secondly, I am excited to announce that I have added two new retailers to the brick and mortar shops which carry my work.  The first is The Sassy Mermaid in Baltimore, MD. The second is Vintage Bliss Boutique on Main Street in Ellicott City, MD. As a fan of both of these shops and their dreamy, ethereal aesthetic, I couldn’t be more pleased to begin with them what I hope will be a wonderful working relationship.

Thirdly, Spring is coming, and I am so desperate for warmer weather than I’ve begun to paint every bit of metal I can get my hands on soft, dreamy pastel shades. There will be a small update next week.

And finally, as I periodically get requests about custom work for labradorite pieces, I have taken a new batch of shots for the labradorite I currently have available for commissioned pieces.

Labradorite!

You can see close-up shots and detailed description of each piece by browsing this Flickr set. Pieces are first come, first serve, so be sure to email me at christina@sihayadesigns.com or convo me on Etsy if you want to reserve a specific piece.  Custom labradorite pieces (Elven Tears series excluded) run $70 – $250, with the median price being about $95 for a 3″ pendant.  Prices are determined by metals requested, price of the stone (purples and rainbows tend to be a little pricier than blues), and complexity/size of the design. I do take payment plans.
