I'm getting ready to add a new draw for smiles on the Lullaby Links Facebook page! I have been bending silver and gold to match the shape of smiles since early 2016 when my oldest child went off to kindergarten. It's a sweet way of keeping a loved one close to your heart whether they are across town learning to read (like she was) or no longer with you on this earth. They are also one of my most favorite things to make and always lift my spirits.
😍💕😍💕😍
If you’d like to enter and don’t have a Facebook account or don’t want to enter via Facebook please inbox your pictures here and comment below using either #smilingforkeeps or #smilinginmemorial (for memorial smiles only) with your name or a code name. I’ll comment your entry myself (Francie Fiammata) with whatever name you choose. I will be drawing at least one memorial and three smiling for keeps on Friday! 💕😍💕😍💕
If/when you are drawn I will announce using that name on Facebook and message you back with directions to begin the design process on Instagram. The designing needs to be finalized within 48 hours and invoices paid within 24 hours. 😍💕😍💕😍
I’m excited to see your smiles and to open this opportunity on Instagram. 🌈❤️ #lullabylinks #offer #keepsake #sentimentaljewelry #healing #sensorysoothing #keepcalmandfidgeton #keepsmiling #smilinginmemorial #moms #babies #dads #family

Last week I went live in LLaFF & Chat (the Lullaby Links and Fancy Fidget Facebook Group) to show my personal collection. Afterwards I got a message from a quilter who was super excited by some of the shapes in my collection. ✂️❤️✂️❤️✂️
In 2014 I stopped doing custom orders because they stopped being fun and I wanted to work on building cohesive collections, but I sometimes miss it. I adore Geometry from an artist's perspective although I have never actually taken a Geometry class (I find it fun to learn more about it through my work). The Geons collection is based on Geometry and most of the sets in that collection are paired shapes where one of the shapes is half of the other. ❤️✂️❤️✂️❤️
I had such a wonderful time looking at quilts and shapes fitted together to make beautiful colorful patterns. Anna (the quilter and longtime linklette) showed me this beautiful quilt (second image) with hexagons broken into thirds; I had so much fun bending silver into little thirds while I thought about the quilt. ✂️❤️✂️❤️✂️
While I was bending it occurred to me that this is one of many ways that women have always worked in mathematics. We often think of women in STEM as programmers and researchers but if we expand to think of quilters, beekeepers, gardeners, knitters, bakers and yes, even jewelry makers ( 😉 ) there are so many of us using STEM in our day to day lives!! ❤️✂️❤️✂️❤️
This month we are celebrating women and I am thinking of opening a small batch of semi-custom pieces based on women in STEM. I'm not sure what that will look like but I would love to hear some ideas from some of you. If you are interested in a semi-custom based on women in STEM you can comment below or inbox me on either social media platform under Lullaby Links or Fancy Fidget. Let’s brainstorm and see what we can come up with for a small batch!

Yesterday as I was boxing up orders a friend of mine called to invite me to meet with a documentary filmmaker who is traveling around the world to interview autistic people for a film she will be showing at the Cannes Film Festival. I don't often talk about being Autistic and many people may not realize that I am an autistic artist/entrepreneur but this is representation that the autistic community very much needs and I was thrilled to be a part of it! 💗❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤
The way the media portrays autistic people is often very different than what the actual autistic community is. We are not all white cisgender heterosexual men with a fascination for engineering and computers. We are diverse in every single way and autism presents differently with each of us. 🖤💜💙💚💛🧡❤️💗
For me, autism informs every aspect of who I am and what I do. My work was motivated and inspired by my own sensory needs and my children sensory seeking as little ones. The way I connect each link to the other, their texture shape, size and the way they move all together is very precise and each of these pieces communicates a feeling for me. I almost always pick my necklaces and bracelets first and then pick my outfits and my jewelry choices are always based on the particular sensory experience/feeling of the piece. They are comfort items for me. 💗❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤
Yesterday I chose the mixed Pattern Blocks necklace with a heavy chain to weigh me down because I felt like I might float away, because one of my nervous stims is scratching rough textures and because this piece is inspired by the evaluation process I went through as a little kid that used wooden pattern blocks. Pattern Blocks is available for purchase in the shop on the Fancy Fidget website: fancyfidget.com/shop
🖤💜💙💚💛🧡❤️💗
I would love to see more autistic representation as Autism Acceptance <Awareness> month approaches. Please share this post with your media friends and let them know we are ready to be seen!

I wasn’t sure how Media Naranja would fit in with the other charms but I’m putting this together for an order with a couple more coils to connect other things and I’m actually loving it. I can’t wait to see how everyone uses their coils!! 🔗🔗🔗
The coils and charms are still available for purchase in the shop on the fancy Fidget website fancyfidget.com/shop. This picture is of three separate handmade charms (A Diamond in the Rough, Media Naranja and Take a Hike - The Anti Valentine) connected by two handmade coils that work similarly to key chains and are fun to play with too. 🔗🔗🔗
It’s never too late to treat yourself! Order soon and you may still be able to receive your charms before Valentine’s Day. 🧚🏻‍♂️ #lullabylinks #fancyfidget #fidgetjewelry #tactilejewelry #preciousmetal #roughtexture #fused #keepcalmandfidgeton #sensoryplay #sensorysoothing #antivalentine #takeahike #adiamondintherough #medianaranja #soulmate #romantic #selflove #valentines #galentinesday

In the first days of 2016 I was playing around with metal to lift my spirits and came up with the idea to bend the shape of my daughter's smile. She was in kindergarten and I was still getting used to being away from her all day long. Having her smile with me was really sweet and I quickly decided to start bending smiles from pictures people submitted in the Lullaby Links Chatter group on Facebook. 😍❤️😍❤️😍
The smiles pieces are semi-custom and their production is limited. I may ask you to draw something out, draw something myself or use my metal scraps to show you how an idea may translate to metal. When the design is finalized I will send an invoice and your piece will be made along with the other pieces drawn in that batch. The batches are usually 5-12 and take 2-6 weeks to complete. ❤️😍❤️😍❤️
I will continue to do the draws on Facebook but I am considering drawing a few from Instagram each time as well. This would require that pictures be sent to the Instagram Inbox so I can make sure the smile you send is one I can do if you’re drawn. I’ve bent a few screaming baby mouths that were definitely not smiling and those were a fun departure but I cannot bend closed mouths because the links are open shapes.
😍❤️😍❤️😍
There is currently a smiles offer on the Facebook page, if you’d like to enter and don’t have a Facebook account or don’t want to enter via Facebook please inbox your pictures here and comment below using either #smilingforkeeps or #smilinginmemorial (for memorial smiles only) with your name or a code name. I’ll comment your entry myself (Francie Fiammata) with whatever name you choose. I will be drawing at least one memorial and three smiling for keeps. If/when you are drawn I will announce using that name on Facebook and message you back with directions to begin the design process on Instagram. The designing needs to be finalized within 48 hours and invoices paid within 24 hours. ❤️😍❤️😍❤️
I’m excited to see your smiles and to open this opportunity on Instagram. 🌈❤️ #lullabylinks #offer #keepsake #sentimentaljewelry #healing #sensorysoothing #keepcalmandfidgeton
