Many Americans may dread mid April because of Tax Day, but Meri of Elfling Creations has a reason to rejoice. April 16th marks the 5th year since she opened her Etsy shop. To celebrate her Etsyversary with her fans, she's giving away a $25 gift card! The winner may have a tough choice deciding what magical accessory to spend it on. I'd choose the pink and black butterfly chainmaille necklace above in a heartbeat, but that's because I already own a pair of her costume dragon horns and crocheted elf ears, which you can see me wearing in my FaerieCon 2009 collage.
Meri makes pretty much anything if she can get her hands on the supplies. She began creating jewelry as a child, stringing plastic beads into necklaces for her mom and sister. Her latest addiction is chainmaille and weaving wire - in addition to amazing necklaces, she also offers elven armor slave bracelets and cartilage chain earrings in a variety of colors and whimsical charms.
Sculpting and crocheting are her other two mediums of choice. She was taught the single stitch about five years ago, and has been learning and experimenting on her own since then. Her crocheted ears and arm bracers are fun ways to embellish Renaissance Faire costumes, but her little plush dolls are even cuter! Out of her many fantasy art creations, what would you choose?
Use the Rafflecopter below to enter to win Meri's jewelry giveaway before 11:59pm EST on April 25, 2012.
