Auction Ending, Protection Talismans, Flash Sale & Imbolc Projects

So this beauty is ending in just about two hours, and I’m shocked that it’s had just two bids. The current high bid is just $40, and this set by The Healer’s Touch easily has a value of $100.

"Dark Angel" Intricate Goldstone Necklace & Earring Set by The Healer's Touch

I’ve been really busy this past week, catching up on chores, getting a pile of packages ready to ship out by Monday, and being forced to rest after pushing myself too hard. We’re finally caught up on laundry and fairly well stocked with groceries, which is really nice. I’ve been working on some new protection talismans, and I am pretty smitten. These are all handmade on metal rings with recycled sari silk yarn. Some have highfired ceramic pendants attached, which can be used as essential oil diffusers. All have a wee vial of black salt with a twist-off top, so that you can empty and refill the vial when/if you choose to do so. I’m not quite done with these yet, but I’d love to hear what you think of my works in progress! The photo with multiple pieces shows some of the variety so far; the close-up is truer to the actual colors of this gorgeous rainbow sari yarn!

I also just realized that I hadn’t posted our Imbolc projects here. We were incredibly glad and grateful to be able to stash away some supplies to make Brighid’s crosses and dolls for the first time this year. You can see my first cross and our dolls below. My doll is on the left; AJ’s is on the right and makes me think of Janis Joplin channeling Brighid, hehe. Obviously the dolls aren’t very traditional, but we had fun with them and these were wonderful bonding experiences, with the Lady and one another. As soon as I have some spare energy to devote to them, I’m planning to decorate my crosses a wee bit with some of this lovely sari yarn.

It is my hope that I’ll be able to get some new jewelry posted in the coming days, as well as adding the first batch of pentagram talismans to my shop. In the meantime, there’s a flash sale happening now! You can find more info here. I generally post to Facebook and Instagram fairly quickly when I have new goodies, and I try to post here regularly as well.

Thanks so much for your support!

In the past handful of days, I’ve taken inspiration from the gorgeous pendants made over at Beadfreaky, as well as some spoon pendants and charms. Here’s what’s come of that so far. 🙂

The above pieces have been listed in my shop — where you can still save 25% on all regularly-priced ready to ship pieces through the end of the month with the code “HELLO2016” — and the piece below is now up for auction.

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.)

Banded Black Agate & Snowflake Obsidian Goddess Prayer Beads with Moonstone

Banded Black Agate & Snowflake Obsidian Goddess Prayer Beads with Moonstone

This gorgeous piece features faceted, banded black agate beads with shimmery clear Czech glass seed beads, silver finished spacers and large faceted snowflake obsidian beads. The pendant features a spiral goddess charm suspended from a tree of life, with a moonstone cabochon in silver-plated setting.

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.

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.

Moonstone has been used in love spells and to divine the future by ancient peoples. It is universally recognized as having a connection to the moon and the divine feminine. Use it to enhance intuition and soothe anxiety. Like pearl, moonstone is graceful and strong, while being quite beautiful as well. It can be used to make a talisman for connecting with water. Use moonstone to aid in relief of symptoms related to hormonal issues. Moonstone is used to balance the third eye and solar plexus chakras, and is a June birthstone. Use it to help you find luck in a new beginning, or to enhance creative inspiration.

For more information or to order, please click here to visit the listing. And don’t forget about my last sale of the year! Every purchase supports a hardworking disabled artist couple and is so very much appreciated. ❤

New pretties & special deals!

Earlier this week, I made and listed a whole bunch of simple, pretty pieces with gemstone vials and/or cabochons, all priced just $9-$12. Many of these are still available in the special deals section of my shop, along with some recently marked-down older pieces.

You can also still save 20% on all regularly-priced jewelry using the code “BYE2015” through the 31st, and don’t forget that you can snag a deal on a grab bag or a discounted gift code through our GoFundMe fundraiser. I’m also still looking for donations for our upcoming Facebook fundraiser, if you’d like to make a contribution there.

Thanks so much for reading! I hope that you’ve all had a wonderful holiday season, whatever you celebrate (or not). ❤

Blessings,

New Pieces & Shipping

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!
