It's almost WNC Celtic weekend

Next weekend, June 19-21, is the WNC Celtic Festival in Asheville NC. This show is great, and are a few reasons why you should be there. 

Marci's Chain Designs will be there, along with other vendors who have all sorts of Celtic goodness. 

You'll see great bands with Rathkeltair, Cutthroat Shamrock and more. 

It's at Highland Brewing Company, so there will be beer!

It's going on all weekend, so you'll have three days worth of entertainment. 

Check out the Highland Brewing Company website for details, and mention seeing this post at my booth for a free gift with your chainmail purchase.

Chain candle holders

This week's post is taking a step away from chainmail and into another chain based project.  I love finding practical ways to upcycle things and these new new wine bottle candle holders are (in my ever so humble opinion) a really beautiful way to do that.  They're usable outdoors, as the bottle protects the candle from breezes and misty rain.  It's a bit difficult to see in the photo, but on the left side you can see a bit of a decorative etching.  I'll have these for sale in a few different designs at the WNC Celtic Festival in Asheville and am looking forward to making as many of these as I can manage without drinking myself into oblivion. 

If you want to come out to the WNC Celtic Festival, which is free to attend on Friday and Sunday,  check out the Marci's Chain Designs facebook Events page for more information.
