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 MairĂ©ad NĂ­ 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. 🙂

 

Gratitude! Plus 33% off & free shipping for custom orders.

Hey, friends! After my recent auction, AJ and I were able to make a $50 donation to Unidos Por Puerto Rico. Thanks so much to each of you who helped make that happen by bidding, buying, and helping to spread the word! I am so grateful for each and every one of you. Please consider also making a donation of your own if you’re able.

If you missed out on the event or you’ve got your eye on a piece in my shop, now’s your time to snag a great deal! Use the code FLASH33 to take 33% off all ready to ship jewelry. I’m also offering free US shipping on custom orders right now if you spend at least $25.

New pieces & the entire shop is on sale!

Good morning, sunshines!

I got a few new pieces listed yesterday, and updated the photos for some items that had indoor pictures with bad lighting. I love the Pacific Northwest rainy winters after growing up surrounded by piles of snow in and around Boston, but it can be hard to find a dry period in which to get decent photos! A few of my newer pieces have rain-splattered photos, as it started raining when I was taking them. Here are some of the newest pieces. I would love to hear what you think! As I type, all of these pieces are still available.

I’ve got my entire shop on sale for 25% off through tomorrow night, with no code needed. The free US shipping threshold has been temporarily lowered from $100 to $50, as well. (Only the free S&H offer applies to custom orders.) Don’t miss out if one of the pieces in my shop is calling to you!

Much love and brightest blessings to you as always, friends.

New baubles & fundraiser ending!

Now that hubby’s been bouncing back a bit, I’ve been able to jump back into beading mode, and I’ve got some unique new baubles to share with you. Here are the pieces added to my shop yesterday, along with a custom necklace.

After another few days working on pieces for the shop — some of which may also end up in grab bags next month — I’ll be focusing on catching up on custom orders again. I’ll also be going to the post office this coming week and will be announcing a flash sale for tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled for that if you’re looking for a deal.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESHere are the new pieces that I worked on last night! I’ll be listing them in my shop today… As each item is listed, I post them on Twitter and Pinterest. I try to keep up with Instagram as well, but sometimes I fall behind because I get frustrated typing on a little touchscreen. I also post the new pieces to Facebook within 24 hours of being added to my shop, but I have to spread those out or none of my posts are seen by anyone, so they’re not usually posted immediately after the pieces are listed. So you have several options for following along!

I’d love to hear what you think of these pieces, and which is your favorite. (My reach on Facebook has been sinking again, so if you have a minute to join the conversation over there and perhaps show some of my other recent posts some love, that would mean the world to me.)

Our fundraiser has just a few days left, and the prospects for meeting our goal are not looking good. If you’d like to take a look, please visit the campaign page and consider whether you may be able to contribute. There are some awesome rewards available for everyone who does! I’ll be planning another fundraiser soon, most likely in the form of a sale event or auction, to help us get the funds that we need to replace AJ’s work laptop and get a platform so that our bed is no longer a mattress on the floor. (We are incredibly grateful to have a decent mattress, but it’s hard for us to get up and down with a mattress on the floor, both having chronic pain.)

Thank you all for being here, being you, and being awesome! I am so blessed to have such an amazing network of friends and supporters, and I am so grateful that you’re here.

Much love and many blessings,
Bri

Auction ending today!

Oh my gosh! I have been so busy and scattered that I completely forgot to post here about the auction I have running over on Facebook, which is ending tonight… A little over 17 hours from when I’m typing this. Most of the pieces are still going for less than half their retail prices. I’ll be shipping all auction wins out next week. At least 2/3 of the proceeds from the event will help ensure that we can afford to move into an apartment in January, so please consider bidding generously, rather than sniping, if you do participate. (Why not all of the proceeds? It’s been a crazy slow couple of months while we’ve been dealing with all of this cross-country move stuff, and we’ve gotta eat!)

Here’s a wee sample of what’s up for grabs over at the auction! Hop over to check it out for yourself and see all 45 available items.

New pieces listed today!

I’d love to hear what you think of this new bunch of pieces! There’s a little something here for a variety of styles. 🙂

Rose quartz is associated with the heart chakra. It can help open us to all forms of love; its energies are useful in boosting self-confidence and self-worth. Rose quartz is a powerful but gentle healing stone and can specifically help with encouraging self-awareness, dreamwork, trust, harmony and dispelling negativity. It is also often used in fertility magic.

Tiger’s eye is a great stone for protection; it is used to protect against the evil eye or Mal Occhio/Malocchio. It aids in clear thinking, insight, mental focus, patience, balance and strength. It is also very useful as a grounding tool.

Amber has wonderful metaphysical properties, including strong healing and protection energies. Wear to rid yourself of negative or funky energy, help yourself find emotional balance and allay fears. Amber is a solar “gemstone” (it is actually fossilized tree resin) which positively radiates warm, soothing energy; it is actually known for turning negative energy that it absorbs into positive healing energy. It is often associated with the sacral and solar plexus chakras but can be used to help heal and balance any part of the body. Traditionally, amber has been used to seal a deal, including marriage, and has been carried by warriors and lovers for good fortune. It is used to foster unconditional love and heal emotional wounds. May help ease symptoms of digestive disorders, respiratory ailments, fibromyalgia and many other health concerns.

Obsidian is a fantastic protection stone; it repels negativity and helps dissolve confusion and untruth. Obsidian aids in healing traumas and emotional wounds, including those from past lives. It is a stone of strength, compassion, honesty and clear sight. This is also a stone connected to death and rebirth, and its energy can aid in divinatory practice.
