Today only, save 33%!

2015-03-29-Flash33From now until midnight Pacific time, use the code “FLASH33” to take a whopping 33% off your non-custom order from my shop!

We’ve got a friend visiting from out of town this week who’s offered to help us run errands Monday afternoon, so we’d like to be able to afford to do so and stock up on a few things that are normally difficult for us to come by! This would help us out a lot, as many of the buses here stop early and I have to do a lot of walking — with chronic pain and a cane for back support — to run certain errands on a regular basis… I love walking when I’m feeling up to it, but don’t always feel up to it when I need to do it. Anyway, that’s why this particular whopper of a discount will only be available for 24 hours. 😉

There are still earrings available in my shop that have been marked down as low as $4.99. You can use the code on them as well!

Here’s a look at some of the new pieces that I posted yesterday; as I type, all of them are still available. I’d love to hear what you think! Which is your favorite?

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

Introducing “Mommy & Me” sets!

Katt got in touch yesterday and convinced me to take her order for this set — a custom order for her tiny princess who loves “Mommy’s pretties” — because she wanted to help with my fundraising for new eyeglasses.

Thanks to Katt, I’ve decided to open custom orders on a very limited, temporary basis. Please get in touch ASAP if you’d like to inquire about a piece! I’d also love to hear what you think of this set, made with peach pearls, rose quartz, pink glass crystals and pewter pendant/accents. I’m happy to report that Katt loves them!

Mommy & Me: Goddess Necklaces w/ Labradorite & Iceflake Quartz

These striking necklaces combine shimmery clear Preciosa Czech glass seed beads; 6mm blue labradorite beads; 6mm faceted light blue glass crystals; 4mm iceflake/crackled quartz beads; and a TierraCast goddess charm. The charm is fine silver-plated pewter, USA-made. All findings are silver-plated/finished Tibetan silver or steel.

The total length for Mommy’s necklace, including the clasp, is just about 23.5″. The shorter piece is 16.25″.

Quartz, also known as rock crystal, is the most universally known and plentiful mineral. Quartz enhances the energy of other stones around it and is also excellent for use in finding balance, clarity and harmony. It is also used for healing, channeling, clearing negative energy and protection. Its energies can aid in meditation, divination, channeling, manifestation and more.

Labradorite is a wonderful stone for protection, sealing energetic leaks, intuition, working on psychic gifts and connecting with your inner/higher self. This stone helps with maintaining a positive outlook and healing from addiction. It is an often-favored crystal among shamans, healers, energy workers and psychics.

Mommy & Me: Flower Necklaces w/ Peach Pearls & Pink Crystals

These sweet necklaces combine shimmery clear Preciosa Czech glass seed beads; peach freshwater pearls; pink glass crystals; and a flowery pewter goddess charm. All findings are silver-plated/finished Tibetan silver or steel.

The total length for Mommy’s necklace, including the clasp, is just about 17.5″. The shorter piece is 15.5″. If needed, there are extender chains available in the add-on section of my shop.

Pearls symbolize purity, spiritual journey, charity, honesty, wisdom and integrity. They can also heighten our ability to receive spiritual guidance. They are undeniably sensual and feminine.

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.

Faerie Garden: Sparkly Prayer Beads with Aventurine & Amethyst

2014-0224-FaerieGarden2

Pretty bauble or prayer beads? You decide! This piece combines shimmery clear Preciosa seed beads, tiny faceted amethyst beads, slightly rougher dark green aventurine rondelles, tiny green Swarovski crystal butterflies, pale purple Czech glass flowers and a large new jade butterfly bead with a faerie pendant and “dream” charm.

Aventurine is generally considered a stone of luck. It can be helpful for dreamwork and maintaining a positive state of mind. Green aventurine is a calming stone, helpful in bringing about inner peace. It has wonderful healing energy, useful for ailments of the eyes and lungs. Use green aventurine to balance the heart or third eye chakras. This is an all-around wonderful stone, helpful in so many ways!

Amethyst is calming, harmonizing, and good at drawing peaceful energy. It is a wonderful healing stone, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Amethyst can be used to aid in all kinds of psychic work, including enhancing one’s intuition. It can be used to protect travelers and to ward off psychic attack. Like garnet, amethyst was often worn or carried into battle as a protective amulet. Helpful with past life recall.

Goddess Pendants

2014-0130-Goddesses

I got a box of new supplies today! I restocked the goddesses I’d already been using in my creations and added two new types of goddess pendants, so I thought I’d show all of them together. 🙂

The largest ones are bone that has been stained brown; I adore them and can’t wait to work with them! The bone goddesses would be stunning with wood, bone, metal and/or the new myrrh resin beads I’ve got on the way!

I got a surprise gift! ♥

Earwarmer!

I just went to the store and stopped into the office for mail on the way. I was totally surprised to get a package from my sweet friend and customer, Belinda, with this adorable headband/earwarmer in it, along with a beautiful handmade card.

I’ve gotten a couple of other handmade gifts from folks in the mail, and it’s so sweet ~ I don’t have words for what an awesome pick-me-up it is, or how grateful I am. I still need to take a pic of me wearing the owl necklace I made that was purchased for me by a friend because I was so in love with its energy but couldn’t afford to not list it in my shop.

I am such a lucky lady, and I am so thankful for all of the amazing friends I’ve made through my jewelry! ♥
