Jaspers are calming stones. Ancient 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.

This piece features a stunning OOAK handmade polymer clay pendant by Deveon over at FaceARTifacts and will be listed in my shop soon. The beads are dragon vein agate, Czech glass and copper. I have several more of her stunning pendants to work with and I can’t wait! ❤
In other news, you can still use the code “BYE2015” to save 20% on all ready to ship jewelry in my shop! There are some gorgeous new OOAK pieces that have been recently listed, if you haven’t stopped by in a while.
It has been a very slow and difficult month for us, so I am also offering grab bags once again. In addition, I am always happy to discuss payment arrangements and custom orders. Just shoot me a PM through my FB page or contact me via my shop. All purchases support a hardworking disabled couple on a limited income, and we appreciate your support very much, whether that means sales or helping to get the word out!
Lots of love and bright blessings to you!

Good morning, sunshines! I’ve been working on lots of new goodies, so I wanted to share some of them with you before I catch some sleep this morning. 🙂 Most of the following pieces are currently available in my new shop! Use the code “GRANDOPENING” to take 30% off your order through the 15th, and remember that 10% of all sales will be donated to a pair of great causes this month — True Colors Fund and an autism-related org to be announced.
I’ll be heading to the post office tomorrow, unless inclement weather causes a delay, and will be back to my normal schedule of shipping every 1-2 weeks. Orders placed by midnight tonight (Pacific time) will ship tomorrow. Thanks for bearing with me the past few weeks while I’ve been especially low on spoons!
Wishing you all a wonderful Friday!

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.
Here 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,

I’ve recently made some new pieces that I’d like to share with you. Some of the pieces below were custom orders; a few others have sold already, but a good portion of them are still available in my shop, along with some older items (most of which have recently had their prices lowered a bit). Everything is 15% off right now, and there are even coupon codes available via the pinned post on my Facebook page that are stackable with this sale, so you should take a peek if you plan on browsing.
In addition to the awesome deals outlined above, there are some fantastic — and exclusive — rewards available to supporters of our GoFundMe campaign. Please take a look!
Thanks so much for your time and attention! I hope that 2015 is treating you well, and that your Friday is off to an excellent start too. If you have a moment, I’d love to hear what you think of these pieces. I’m also in need of questions for my “Ask Bri” series, because my file of saved questions was saved only on my laptop when the screen died back in November. I won’t be able to access it until we are able to get a hard drive enclosure, so please feel free to ask new questions — or remind me of a question you’ve asked that I haven’t yet answered in a post — if you’d like to see a new Q&A post soon.

All of the pieces of this collection are now listed in my shop, and are still available as I type!
Garnet, 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.
