Hey folks! I know I've been quiet for ages, but I've had a lot going on in my life.
That said, I'll be at Otakon 2018 this coming weekend of August 10-12! I'll be at booth G09 in the Artist Alley! If you'll be there, stop by and say hi!
It's been ages since I posted a journal and barely as much since I posted anything at all.
Between the death of my father at the beginning of 2017, the hell of moving myself in with friends while my mother and I bought a house, then the hell of moving her from DC to my area kinda wore on me. Then I got really sick in December, turned out to be cancer, and resulted in my having surgery on the 29th of January this year. I'm clean now, but I have a crapload of bills to pay from some of it. Plus I can't work for another three weeks or so, barely can handle driving yet (abdominal surgery, whee), and get tired really easily so posting and maintain
All rightie, it's that time again! I'm getting prepped to attend Katsucon for another year!
Irodama Chainmaille & Bead Jewelry will be at table H12 in the Artist Alley! If you're going to be there, stop by and say hi!
Honestly, if anyone out there wants to commission something chainmaille-y or even randomly buy something out of any of my store fronts, it'd really help me get through the next week until payday.

So... I'm taking a chance and trying out Patreon to help fund some of the jewelry work that I do. No sob stories, no guilt, just offering inclined folks a chance to help in a long-term way.
There are reward levels, but no one is under a compulsion to donate for any of them. Please, if you feel inclined, check out the link below.
