Do you know about Lillyella? Let me tell you about Lillyella, at least what I know. I was first introduced to the Lillyella shop and its designer, Nicole, by my forever-friend Ngan, of eNVe Designs. Ngan featured the Lillyella shop on her blog, showcasing her gorgeous jewelry.
Later, I saw that Nicole had written a recap on her blog about participating in Chicago’s Renegade Craft Fair. Listen, dude, if you don’t know about Renegade, you need to ask somebody. It is SRSBZNS, ok? Renegade is a massive craft fair with the coolest stuff. It started in Chicago (REPRESENT!!) and has spread to other major U.S. cities. Nicole’s recap is great, and way down at the bottom of the comments you’ll see me being all fangirlish and stuff. I got all excited because she mentioned people and shops I actually know, like, in person! It made me feel like I was playing the Kevin Bacon game, and Nicole is Kevin Bacon and I’m . . . well, I’m someone who knows someone who knows Kevin Bacon.
Anyway! Nicole featured a giveaway recently and I TOTALLY WON OMG, so I got to pick out an item for her to make for me. She was very nice and worked with me on getting just the right colors and style, and before I knew it, my fantabulous bracelet from Etsy royalty showed up at my house!
Now is the time on Sprockets when we dance! Or show pics of our pretty bracelets. One or the other.
Isn’t it gorgeous???
