GeekGirlCon 2023

I realized we hadn’t posted any pictures of us from GeekGirlCon 2023!

It was a very safe convention COVID wise and we enjoyed being back amongst our geeky people.

GeekGirlCon 2023

It’s been a long time, but we’re happy to say that we’ll be vending at GeekGirlCon 2023 in Seattle! October 7-8!

Masks and proof of vaccination will be required for this convention, which is the reason we can attend. Both Raven and Elise will have new stuff, so we look forward to seeing you there!

SummerCon 2022!

We’re excited to get back to vending at conventions and chatting with everyone, so we’re excited to announce that barring another serious variant, we’ll be at Washington State SummerCon this June!

We’re hoping to add another convention or two this year as well so stay tuned!

Welcome Norwescon Attendees!

GeekGirlCon Attendees!

Welcome GeekGirlCon 2020 Attendees!

We wish we could have welcomed you in person, but we’re glad you’re here virtually! Our STORE is open!

Come find great books and art by local author Raven Oak, and geeky chainmaille jewelry by Elise! We’ve been working together for a few years now and hope you find our work to your liking!


2020…Pandemic Style

2020–the year of Covid-19 and crazy politics. After our event at NerdFaire in Lynnwood, WA, all of our events for the 2020 Year were cancelled.

You’re welcome to order from our online store but otherwise, we’ll be waiting this out with everyone else. Several of our events have already shifted to virtual for 2021. We’ll let you know when we start doing in person events again. 🙁


Books & Chains will be at GeekGirlCon 2019 this weekend in Seattle, WA, at Booth 912. Come check out all our new chainmaille jewelry, books, and art!

Geek Craft Market!

We noticed it had been a while since we’d updated the event calendar, which has now been updated to fully reflect 2019’s calendar. On that note, if you’re looking for a way to drown your sorrows that the man who was Chewbacca has died or celebrate this geeky weekend (May the 4th be with you, or possibly Revenge of the 5th, depending upon how you roll), come on out to Puyallup for the Geek Craft Market!

Books & Chains will be there Saturday with new books, art, and chainmaille jewelry! More details on the event can be found here:
