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. 🙂
Amethyst & Purple Butterfly Prayer Beads
Cedar Tree Prayer Beads with Mountain Jade & Czech Glass
Sweet Spring Green Lotus & Clear Quartz Prayer Beads
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’m also excited to share these new spare spoon pieces! The first two are in my shop; the others are listed in the fundraiser.
Spare Spoon Necklace with Rose Quartz & Dyed Agate
Spare Spoon Necklace with Purple Mountain Jade & Czech Glass
Simple Spare Spoon Pendants
Spare Spoon Bracelet
I’d love to hear what you think of the new goodies! Thanks so much for reading. ❤

I don’t often post single pieces on the blog in their very own post anymore, but this one is special.
India Clarke was a transgender woman who was murdered this year. An alarmingly high percentage of violence perpetrated against members of the GLBTQ community occurs in the form of attacks on trans women, particularly trans women of color. The violence against these women — and the too-frequent loss of life — is beyond unacceptable, and this is my small way of trying to draw attention to the issue.
I will be donating $5 from the sale of this piece to TWOCC, Trans Women of Color Collective. Visit the shop listing here for more info or to purchase.
The beads are a mix of shimmery clear Czech glass seed beads, faceted fire-polished Czech glass beads in rainbow colors, tiny quartz beads and large chevron amethyst. The pendant features a tiny hand-painted piece of art by Windy Paints, sealed under a glass cabochon.
Amethyst is a type of quartz. It 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. Really, amethyst is just a generally wonderful all-purpose stone!
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.

It’s been a while since I had a giveaway for y’all, so I’ve decided to rectify that by giving away TWO collaborative pieces in the second half of April! Here’s a sneak peek at the prizes that I just finished up tonight,,,
The piece on the left features a fancy beadwork leaf pendant by my friend Tracey at The Healers Touch – A Journey In Healing. This necklace combines labradorite, peridot, serpentine, gold freshwater pearls, glass crystals, metal accent beads, and pressed glass Eye of Providence beads.
The necklace on the right features a sweet hand-painted chakra pendant by my pal Windy over at Windy Paints. This piece combines faceted Czech glass beads with clear quartz and pewter accent beads.
I’d love to hear what you think! Which of these are you most excited about entering to win? Keep an eye on my Facebook page and/or my posts here on the blog over the next week for more info on how to enter both contests… And while you’re at it, please pop over to my co-conspirators’ FB pages to show them some love, too!

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!
