Walter and the Coov at Stitch Rock 2015

We’re back from Stitch Rock 2015! It was such a wonderful experience and I loved meeting our fellow crafters and makers. I wanted to share some photos of our table, above is the Halloween section which was, by far, the most popular. We sold out of eyeball earrings and almost sold out of eyeball necklaces. I wish people wanted Halloween 24/7 because I could easily do an all-Halloween goth shop.

Next up, the kokeshi box! I feel like these were not displayed well at all, but those of you who know craft shows know that when you do a show your table gets bumped a lot, and my thin kokeshi kept taking a tumble. A lot of people were interested, but they didn’t want to pay so much. In fact, we sold only $10 or less items, but we sold a bundle of them.

Shop: Pastel Rainbow Chainmail Necklaces

Pastel Chainmail Necklace

Pastel Chainmail Necklace – Hidden Helix Pattern

Happy Monday everyone! I took the day off of work for a maybe-thesis-advising appointment at school which means for the first time in ages I 1) slept past 5 AM on a Monday and 2) had time to post a listing in the Walter and the Coov shop! About a month ago I convinced Walter to buy some beautiful pastel chainmail links and now that I’ve stolen the prototypes, new versions of each necklace have appeared in out shop! Above is the Hiddden Helix necklace, which you can wear in either a twisty or non-twisty state.

Next is my favorite, the Pastel Shag Necklace, which is so fun and lovely and unique. I really love pastel goth stuff and these, to me, are too beautiful. I really hope you like them too! Enjoy your Monday everyone, mine will be chaotic, but I’m hoping to get a lot done.

Shop: Candy Colored Skull Cameos

Skull Mini Cameo Necklace - Green and Purple

Skull Mini Cameo Necklace – Green and Purple

Last week I brought some candy colored skull cameos to the Walter and the Coov shop, one new design and one classic, perfect for Halloween or everyday goth (aka me). Above is the new design, a mini skull and crossbones cameo in purple and green, subtle and sweet, it’s on a rounded link chain. It’s a different colorway of an older design that I’ll be restocking soon. I’m fairly certain that the setting is a vintage reproduction, but it might be actually vintage, I’m having a very hard time finding it again. A few older pieces might become limited editions because of this.

Pink and Blue Skull Cameo Necklace

Skull Cameo Necklace in Pink and Blue

Next is a classic design that I’ve just moved to the Walter and the Coov shop: Skull Cameo Necklace in Pink and Blue. It’s a design that I carried in the Zombuki shop off and on for a few years, but I’m moving a lot of things around. I’m not finding any more of either the pink and blue skulls or the pearl cream settings, so these necklaces will probably be a limited edition, too. I have enough to make just a few more, then I think they’re gone.

I’ve added chain options to all of my cameo listings too so you can go with the funkier ball chain or the classic link chain (my preference). I hope you all like the skull necklaces!

Shop: Pastel Chainmail Necklaces

Pastel Chainmail Necklaces by Walter and the Coov

Pastel Chainmail Necklaces in the Hidden Helix Pattern

Good morning everyone! I’m excited to announce that I pestered boyfriend into making me super girly pastel chainmail, and it’s now available in our shop. Above you can see two that are in the Hidden Helix pattern; the top is unwound and the bottom one is wound up. I always wear mine unwound because I like it better that way, but boyfriend likes it better in the spiral. Another thing that we will never agree on, like radishes, which I think are like little round nuggets of poison.

Sky Blue Chainmail Necklace

Sky Blue Chainmail Necklace in a Chunky Knot Pattern

Next up is a chunky Sky Blue Chainmail Necklace with silver accents. This one is in a chunkier knotted pattern, it makes me think of Celtic knots. It’s a bit funkier and larger for those wanting to make a bigger statement. Pastel chainmail(le) isn’t something that I’ve seen a ton of, but I love it because it’s so Pastel Goth. We will definitely be making more in the future and I’m so excited about it.
