New deals for the solstice!

Hiya, friends! I have some great new offers… First, use the code “SOLSTICE” (no quotes) to take 30% off all handmade items in the shop! Additionally, the free shipping threshold will remain at $75, rather than $100, through the end of the month. I am also offering free shipping on regularly-priced custom orders all month long!

I’ve also got two slots remaining for solstice ritual kits, featuring a large hand-rolled blue and yellow beeswax candle with gemstone chips and my solstice ritual oil; a 1 dram dropper bottle of the chamomile and myrrh essential oil blend in fractionated coconut oil; and a surprise gemstone parcel. Because it’s so last minute, these ship for just $35. Normally, my ritual kits are $10 more. I’ll be making them tonight and shipping by Thursday via priority mail, so don’t hesitate to get in touch via Facebook or email if you’d like to claim one of these kits.

As always, much love and many blessings to you all!

What a long, strange road it’s been.

Hello, friends! It’s sure been a while since I posted here, hasn’t it? The same was true of everywhere but Facebook until I started posting on Instagram again recently.

I’ve been dealing with a lot of brain fog and physical limitations for the past year, and I strongly suspect that everything has continued to be so difficult because of lingering side effects from my time on Cymbalta. I’m very happy to say that I’m finally getting more functionality back, thanks to eating as healthily as I can manage, figuring out which supplements help me the most, becoming a Reiki practitioner, starting to make my own essential oil blends, and using small amounts of MMJ to keep my pain from becoming unbearable. It’s been a long, hard road away from the pharmaceuticals that I’d hoped would help give me my life back. I’m now taking the reins myself when it comes to my fibro and chronic pain, and it feels amazing to be healing.

I’ve been doing monthly auctions to help make ends meet over in my event group on Facebook. There’s one happening right now, ending Thursday evening. There are still many pieces without any bids. If you have a moment. pop over and join the group so you’ll be ready to bid if something tickles your fancy — I’ll be adding even more items today and possibly tomorrow. Here’s a peek at some of the items…

OOAK Wood Nymph Necklace with Art Pendant by Esther Remmington

2015-03-20-Wood-Nymph-Faerie-Esther-Remmington-Necklace-OOAK-Art-Moss-Agate-African-Jade-Tigereye-Leaf-GreenOpal-1

This striking, one of a kind necklace combines moss agate, red tiger’s eye (also known as tiger iron), African jade rondelles and large faceted green opal rondelles with shimmery dark gold seed beads, Tibetan silver oak leaves and a lovely art print pendant by Esther Remmington Art. I’ve hung sweet little tinkly bells and a gemstone bauble from the pendant frame.

This is the last pendant featuring Esther’s art that I’ll be able to work with for a while, so if you’re in love, please don’t hesitate to order. When it’s gone, it’s gone.

All metal components are silver-finished base metals or Tibetan silver.

The length is approximately 35″, including the lobster clasp. The pendant hangs down about 4″ from the beaded strand.

Everything is strung on sturdy, flexible, nylon-coated 49-strand stainless steel beading wire.

New goodies!

Hello, friends!

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.

Much love,
Bri

Quiet Strength: Mjolnir Necklace with Rhodonite & Pink Lepidolite

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This unique necklace combines pink faceted glass crystals with softly faceted pink lepidolite beads; “cherries and cream” rhodonite and grey quartz flower beads; and silver-lined ruby red Preciosa Czech glass seed beads with a pewter Mjolnir (Thor’s hammer) pendant. The findings, including lobster clasp, are all silver-finished steel or Tibetan silver.

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 just about 21″. Please allow room for chunky beads; if needed, there are extender chains available in the add-on section of my shop. The final photo in the listing shows this piece with a US quarter dollar for size reference.

Lepidolite is a type of mica; its name comes from the Greek words for “scale” and “stone”, as it is often found in scale-like formations. It is a wonderful stone for calming, relaxation, forging trust and finding balance. This is a great stone to help you make your way through a period of transition. Wear to foster self-love, patience with oneself and others, success in business, and purging of negative or harmful emotion that no longer serves you. Use to ease symptoms of depression, anxiety and other potentially debilitating mental health issues — but be warned that the effects can be swift and intense, and only wear it when you are ready to activate its energy in your life. Can help ease hormone imbalances, immune system issues and more; can also be used for general healing. Wonderful for dreamwork and forging connections with the divine, spirits and our higher selves. Useful for chakra balancing, especially the heart, crown and third eye.

Rhodonite is named after the Greek word for rose, because of its pink and reddish hues. It has a strong connection to the heart chakra, so it is wonderful for balancing and healing related to emotions, relationships, etc. Use to foster unconditional love and forgiveness, and for emotional balance in general. Wear to help you hold onto patience and calm during stressful or traumatic periods; it can also be quite helpful in fostering self esteem, self confidence, self love, and encouraging compassion. Darker shades of rhodonite have been reported to be especially helpful with issues related to hormonal imbalance. Some find the stone helpful with inflammation, arthritis, lung ailments, fertility and joint-related issues. Also known to help with detoxification and skin problems. Meditate with rhodonite to help you discover and learn how to use your inherent gifts. Eases impatience and helps ground negative energy away.
