My New Frond Fern

By Emma Sailor - Factotum Body Modification, Norwich

By Emma Sailor - Factotum Body Modification, Norwich

Isn't she lovely? This is the first piece that I've been able to actually stare at and thoroughly enjoy at will.  The rest are on my back and ribs, which are difficult to look at... and I do have one on my calf that I see occasionally depending on which yoga position I'm in.  I love her.

At the end of this month, my darling Lisa and I are going to be journeying to Snowdonia! Yes, Snowdonia is a real place, not a magical far off land in a fantasy novel.  We do, however, expect to see some fairies and wizards.  I mean, look at it.

In other exciting news, my hetero lifemate is going to be here in 5 WEEKS! Right after the Mayfair Bazaar, I will be picking her sweet ass up and we will be getting our nerd on at Harry Potter Studios, skipping around London, drinking and eating our way through France, and then hopping over to Venice to get on a cruise through the Mediterranean with our hubbies.

It will look something like this:

Day 1 - Marseille, France. Sun, glorious sun!
Day 2 - Avignon, France. Can you smell that lavender?
Day 3 - Camargue Tour. If I score a shot like this I may pee my pants.
Wine cheese fruit olive oil fresh bread all day every DAY.

Day 4 & 5 - Nice, France. Ass in the sand, ass in the sand.
Days 6-8 - Venice, Italy. No need to describe.
Day 9 - Dubrovnik, Croatia. Bucket list item.
Day 10 - Corfu, Greece. Bikini BLISS.
Day 11 - Piraeus, Greece. A little Acroplis action!
Day 12 - Santorini, Greece.  The place I am absolutely MOST excited about on this trip.  I've had pictures similar to the above hanging in my room since I was young. Probably going to happy cry on this one.
Day 13 - Katakalon, Greece
Day 14 - Bari, Italy for some cave exploration!
And then it's back to Venice and to home in England! I'm going to be exhausted, relaxed, and so very grateful.  <3

Skirt Launch April 7th!

Alright! After much deliberation and overwhelming positive feedback on the skirts, I have decided to launch them online rather than in person, providing all of you lovelies a much broader opportunity to get the one that you have your eye on!

The skirts will officially be available at 8:00PM London time on Monday, April 7th!  What time is that in MY time zone you ask?  That is NOON Pacific Time, 1:00PM Mountain Time and 3:00PM Eastern Time.

All the skirts are different sizes, so I have listed the specifics below so you can make sure the one you love is the size you want!

The skirts are going to launch in my Etsy shop, so click this link or save it to your favorites! Remember, there are only 7 skirts available in the Spring Collection, and the next collection won’t be created until this coming Fall!

Skirt Photo Shoot!!

It is all happening!  Saturday was a magical day, full of gorgeous sunny weather, beautiful and generous friends, and what I feel is a delicious milestone in my adventure as an artist.  I feel like I have been waiting forever to have such a thing to share with you!  A ridiculously massive thank you to Amanda Webb of Footsteps Photography for bring my vision to fruition, and to my two gorgeous models, Lisa and Lauren for making this skirts look even more amazing than I had imagined.  

Without further adieu, I present to you the Spring 2014 Collection of Handpainted Skirts by Emily Magone (that's me!).  Wheeeeeee!!

Yeah.  I most definitely busted a tear when I saw how amazing these turned out.  For those that missed the last update about them, here is the info for those of you who are interested in snagging these one of a kind pieces of wearable art!  

Being that it isn't realistic to have these skirts made in mass quantities, I am going to release small, individual collections in the Spring and Fall.  If it goes well, next year I will do Spring, Summer and Fall, adding the sheer silk skirts to the collection as well.

Some info on the pieces!
  • The skirts are wrap style, so will fit nearly all sizes and can be worn in a silly amount of different ways! I am in talks about a photo/video blurb that will demonstrate all of the ways to wear them as well!
  • Most are floor length, but a couple are tea length, and one is built especially for a left-handed tie.  
  • The fabric is a bamboo/rayon blend, extremely soft, and hangs beautifully.  
  • They wrinkle up easily when crumpled, but smooth out very easily as well.  
  • Some have a soft and tiny fringe on some edges, giving beautiful texture.
  • This fabric is very strong when dry, and very delicate when wet.  It must be handwashed in cool water with a small amount of gentle, colorless detergent.
  • The color/paint will not wash out, it is heat set and becomes permanent during the creating process.
  • Prices will vary from $165 to $195, depending on the length and design of the skirt.

In celebration of launch day, I will be having a 20% off everything in the Etsy shop as well!  

The timing for the Spring Collection is going to coincide with the local Mayfair Bazaar the first weekend in May, so the launch will be an in-person event, and any skirts that are not sold at the Bazaar will then be available on the website following the event.  

If you have any questions about the skirts, the launch, or the Mayfair Bazaar, please do not hesitate to email me at!
