Altan & New Pieces

2018-02-09-Mairead-Gift-Blue-Triskele-Sodalite-Aquamarine-SterlingAJ and I will be heading off to see Altan in Seattle in just two and a half weeks. Eep! This is our first concert in almost 9 years. Music is a huge deal to both of us and we have been absolutely enamored of Altan for the past five years. They introduced us to traditional Celtic folk music and sparked a love affair that only burns more brightly over time. So, needless to say, we are excited.

I asked Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Altan’s incredibly talented frontwoman, what her favorite color is. She told me that she likes blue, so I made the piece above as a gift that we’ll bring with us to the show. I hope that she loves it! The beads are sodalite, aquamarine and sterling silver. The pendant is a handmade focal which can be used as an essential oil diffuser, made by the lovely Christine at Beadfreaky.

I’ve just listed some brand new pieces to the shop, as well. I’d love to hear what you think of these. 🙂

Happy new year: updates & huge discount!

Hello, my dears. It’s been quite a while, hasn’t it? The past couple of years have been rough for me, with new chronic hand pain brought on by drugs prescribed for my fibromyalgia. I’m off of that poison now, but they’ve done their damage and I’m still learning every day how to do the best I can as I slowly heal. I’m still been working on new pieces as I can, I’ve just been struggling to keep up with updates on multiple sites. In particular, I’ve been focusing on Facebook. I plan to start updating here and on Instagram more in the new year.

If you’re not yet connected with me on Facebook, you can do any of the following…

Follow my business page; follow or friend my personal page for more updates with recent algorithm changes; join my event group where I hold monthly auctions; or join my other group, where I post sneak peeks and more.

For those of you who haven’t been seeing much of anything from me, here are some of the pieces I’ve been working on recently. I’d love to hear what you think!

I have an incredible offer going right now, if you’re looking for a special new piece of jewelry… Some of the above pieces are still available, along with others not shown here. Just use the code HAPPYNEWYEAR to take 40% off all regularly priced jewelry in my shop.  Please feel free to get in touch if you’re interested in discussing a custom piece; the best ways to do so are via Facebook PM or emailing through the shop.

I hope that 2017 has been as gentle with you and your loved ones as possible, especially if you are in the US, considering the chaos that is currently trying to swallow the United States whole. I send you love and wish you compassion, opportunity and only the brightest of blessings in the year to come.

PS: AJ and I have been offering readings and Reiki in gratitude for donations through our YouCaring fundraiser, and we’ve had great reviews so far… You can find some of them on the B&B Facebook page. We’re grateful for any support, and we’d love to provide services for you, as well.

Catching up: auction pieces & The Healer’s Touch

Amethyst Meditating Goddess Prayer Bead Necklace

First off, this beauty is still up for auction, ending in less than 24 hours. As I type, the high bid is $40. The various amethyst beads and Beadfreaky pendant have such lovely energy and combine so well… Whoever ends up winning this piece will be very happy with it, I believe.

There are also oodles of other pieces that I’ve already posted still available, from Feeling a Little Crochety, Pulp Street Creations and myself. Click here to visit the main fundraiser page.

I’ve recently received and listed a bunch of items from Tracey over at The Healer’s Touch. First, here is the newest auction item, a gorgeous necklace and earring set. (I didn’t realize that it was slightly crooked until after the fact — but seriously, there are other photos in the listing and none of them came close to doing this beauty any justice.)

And here are the rest of the recently added goodies.

I’ve been busy and a bit under the weather recently, and I keep forgetting to figure out a new deal for February. Until I do, the code “HELLO2016” will take 25% off all regularly-priced ready to ship jewelry in my shop. And there are even gifts!

Free gift with all purchases!

Free Sleepytime Lip Balm & Selenite for Orders of $30 or More!

As always, I’d like to thank everyone who has donated items for this fundraiser, made donations for the gorgeous pieces that have been available, helped spread the word about the event or done anything else to support us in any way. You are all amazing, and we are so lucky to have you as part of the Baubles & Blessings family!

Much love and many blessings,
❤ Bri

Beadfreaky inspiration & spare spoons!

In the past handful of days, I’ve taken inspiration from the gorgeous pendants made over at Beadfreaky, as well as some spoon pendants and charms. Here’s what’s come of that so far. 🙂

The above pieces have been listed in my shop — where you can still save 25% on all regularly-priced ready to ship pieces through the end of the month with the code “HELLO2016” — and the piece below is now up for auction.

Amethyst Meditating Goddess Prayer Bead Necklace

I’m also excited to share these new spare spoon pieces! The first two are in my shop; the others are listed in the fundraiser.

I’d love to hear what you think of the new goodies! Thanks so much for reading. ❤

Blessings,
Bri
