New goodies!

First, I am super excited to share my new fibro warrior/spoonie pendants. I’ve made the first batch with purple ribbons, but the ribbon color and cord color/type are customizable. Check out the listing in the fundraiser for more info.

I’ve also added several auction items donated by ZenithJade Creations, all starting at just $1 plus shipping.

And some sweet new lightweight wooden pendant designs, too.

I also made a beaded piece for the shop a few days ago. I’m very pleased with how this one turned out, so sparkly and sweet! Remember, you can use the code “HELLO2016” to save 25% on all regularly priced ready to ship jewelry in my shop. (In other words, the coupon is not applicable to pieces in the “special deals” section or custom items.)

Time to play catch up… New pieces, discounts, upcoming auction & grab bags!

2015-05-27-MAY33Heya, friends! I recently sent out questionnaires for fundraiser grab bags, and I’ll be working concurrently on getting the first sets of grab bags together, working on the last of the older custom orders, and making new pieces for my shop over the next couple of weeks. I’ll try to get better about posting them here again as I make new pieces. In the meantime, if you are due a reward and haven’t found the email titled “Grab Bag Questionnaire”, please get in touch and let me know that you haven’t received it.

You can see my newest coupon codes to the left… Just enter the code of your choice during checkout via my shop, either “MAY33” to save 33% on any pre-coupon purchase of at least $25 OR “FREESHIP” for free US S&H on any order of at least $15. Both are good through the end of May.

I’m planning a jewelry auction for the first weekend in June, most likely running from the 4th through the 8th. Keep an eye on my FB page for details as I figure them out; the auction will take place on FB. (If you have a moment to stop by and show my recent posts some love to help boost my signal, I’d appreciate that very much too!)

Oh, and before I forget… For anyone who missed it, here’s the screenshot of the donations your purchases in April helped me to make! I posted this on FB and forgot to share it here a couple of weeks ago.

This isn’t everything I’ve made since my last major jewelry upload, but here are some of the highlights… Some of these are still available in my shop, and I’ll have more added soon! Among my personal favorites of this bunch are the marijuana bud necklaces. As a medical marijuana patient who went from being on high doses of narcotics and many additional pharmaceuticals just to be able to function, to now just using my MMJ and about half of the meds I was on previously — no more narcotics! — along with a healthier diet, I am amazed at how much better I feel.

I’ve been pleased by the response so far, and I’ll continue to make marijuana-themed jewelry because I am a firm supporter of the legalization of marijuana for medical, spiritual and recreational use… Your purchase of any of those pieces will help you show your support for marijuana reform, and will also help make sure that this patient doesn’t have to go without her meds. If there is enough response, I’ll also start donating a percentage of sales of these pieces to organizations working toward reform. If you have suggestions for great orgs that are underfunded, please let me know! I’m always thrilled to have a chance to pay it forward after all of the help we’ve received along our journey out of serious poverty and the chronic threat of a return to homelessness. More

Witchy Warrior Headdress with Garnet, Copper, Czech Glass & Chain

I’m working on listing a selection of garnet and copper pieces that I made this morning. Hubby and I are at the beginning of a flamekeeping shift and I’d like to spend most of it working on new pieces and energy work, especially with the shift coinciding with the holiday, so I’m not certain how much I’ll actually post tonight… But I was so pleased with how this special piece turned out that I had to share it now. I’d love to hear what you think! (Please just overlook this morning’s very messy hair.) I also have a similar beaded necklace, along with several pairs of earrings and two pendant/chain combos inspired by the headdress.

(For anyone seeing this who missed my earlier post, you can still use the code “SAMHAIN” to take 31% off all ready to ship jewelry in your order.)

This luscious, regal headdress combines faceted garnet beads, bright copper and deep garnet Czech glass beads with shimmery dark gold Preciosa Czech glass seed beads. The findings and charms, including lobster clasp, are all bronze-finished steel or Tibetan silver, with the exception of the antiqued copper-finished feather charms and draped chain.

The energy in this piece is wonderful! I just adore garnet. I was also working with this piece hands-on for several hours, because it’s a new design/concept for me, and it was created on Samhain.

Wear any of my pieces for their metaphysical properties, or just because you think they’re pretty! You can also turn any beaded bracelet or necklace into prayer beads if you’d like, by simply shifting your perspective.

The total length, including the clasp, is adjustable from about 21.75″ to 24″.

2014-1031-Witchy-Warrior-Headdress1Garnet, when gifted, fosters loyalty and affection. If stolen, the stone is said to bring bad luck until returned to the rightful owner. It is considered a warrior’s stone and has been carried for centuries in battle, as a charm against injury or death. Garnet is also often used as a talisman against negativity and evil, ranging from nightmares to astral attack. It is also a stone of romance and passion; it can be used to increase spiritual awareness or one’s sex drive.

Copper tends to stimulate and encourage optimism, independence, harmony, luck, sexuality, intuition and general vitality. Copper is a wonderful conductor of healing energy and its properties are useful in many areas of healing.

Samhain Collection: Gemstone Necklace for Protection & Grounding

 This piece was made in honor of the warrior goddess Morrighan, with protection in mind. It features spiderweb jasper in a rainbow of neutral shades, smooth and faceted black agate, a bit of black obsidian, magnetic hematite and bright copper beads, along with a bronze skull pendant. The findings are bronze-finished steel or Tibetan silver.

Agates are stones of protection, harmony and strength. It is helpful in summoning creative energy and easing anxiety, and is a wonderful stone to use in children’s jewelry and charms, with how strong a protector agate tends to be. It is also a fantastic stone for neutralizing or dispelling negative energies. Depending on the variety of agate, it is well used in chakra balancing; just match the color of the stone to that of the chakra.

Hematite is a very grounding stone, often used in various forms of healing. Black and similar, dark colors are associated with the root chakra, which governs our relationship with the physical world and self-preservation.

Jaspers are calming stones. Egyptians saw jasper as a tool for increasing sexual energy, while the Bible claims it is a gift from the Christian God. It is fairly universally considered to be a healing stone. Various jaspers are helpful in chakra cleansing, used according to color. This stone aids in astral travel. It is a warding, energizing stone.

Copper tends to stimulate and encourage optimism, independence, harmony, luck, sexuality, intuition and general vitality. Copper is a wonderful conductor of healing energy and its properties are useful in many areas of healing.

The total beaded length, including clasp, is approximately 26.25″. The pendant, including the black agate bead the skull is suspended from, hangs down about another 3.25″.

The Home Project: OOAK Art Pendant & Gemstone Necklace for Brighid


The pendant, featuring Brighid Herself, was made by Esther Remmington Fantasy Art from a tiny archival quality print of her original art.

The necklace features golden Swarovski crystal pearls, faceted aventurine beads in multiple shades and sizes, rich carnelian in two sizes, large golden calcite beads, golden Swarovski crystal pearls, silver plated spacers and pewter Celtic knot beads.
