Annual Summer Showing - NYRF

The New York Renaissance Faire

Each year, beginning the first weekend in August and running for eight consecutive weekends only including Labor Day, I attend and display my work in my permanent booth at location #29 Lakeside. If you're interested in joining in the fun, saying hello and seeing (and trying on) the masks in person please check out the NYRF website at http://renfair.com/NY/. The show is located in Tuxedo, New York (35 miles north of NYC). Directions and complete information about the event can be viewed on their website.

Look forward to seeing you this summer.

Chinese proverb say...take look, all connected.

I began working on this Thangka in December 2008. Though this may appear to be a divergence from the masks I'm known for creating, I don't think so. Perhaps the genuineness of a mask is concealed very deeply inside of it and in transcribing it, shifting domains is often helpful. In this way, meaning manages to float to the surface for those who wish to translate.

A purrfect fit

The last word I would ever use to describe the masks I create is adorable. Still, it was the word that came to mind after making this sexy little headpiece and putting it on for the first time. Here's how it goes, a leather strap runs across the forehead (and ties behind the head) and another strap, with two leather cat shaped ears (silk velvet lined) perched upon it, drapes over of the head. For pricing or to purchase this headpiece Bastet or either of the two wrist cuffs shown below (minus the beautiful model Anyssa) please email me at wendydrolma@gmail.com

Pictured below are two new cuff styles. Both are leather. This first pair is my button stud cuff set (solid brass studs and O rings), silk velvet lining. It's soft and so nice to wear.

This next pair is velvet lined as well with a satin silk ribbon tie closure. Nickle silver "D" rings.
