Since I’ve been so bad about posting lately, I thought I’d share some of my newest pieces. ❤ Many of these are still available in my shop, and there are some available items not included here. Check out yesterday’s post for a coupon code to save 20%!

Heya, friends! I recently sent out questionnaires for fundraiser grab bags, and I’ll be working concurrently on getting the first sets of grab bags together, working on the last of the older custom orders, and making new pieces for my shop over the next couple of weeks. I’ll try to get better about posting them here again as I make new pieces. In the meantime, if you are due a reward and haven’t found the email titled “Grab Bag Questionnaire”, please get in touch and let me know that you haven’t received it.
You can see my newest coupon codes to the left… Just enter the code of your choice during checkout via my shop, either “MAY33” to save 33% on any pre-coupon purchase of at least $25 OR “FREESHIP” for free US S&H on any order of at least $15. Both are good through the end of May.
I’m planning a jewelry auction for the first weekend in June, most likely running from the 4th through the 8th. Keep an eye on my FB page for details as I figure them out; the auction will take place on FB. (If you have a moment to stop by and show my recent posts some love to help boost my signal, I’d appreciate that very much too!)
Oh, and before I forget… For anyone who missed it, here’s the screenshot of the donations your purchases in April helped me to make! I posted this on FB and forgot to share it here a couple of weeks ago.
This isn’t everything I’ve made since my last major jewelry upload, but here are some of the highlights… Some of these are still available in my shop, and I’ll have more added soon! Among my personal favorites of this bunch are the marijuana bud necklaces. As a medical marijuana patient who went from being on high doses of narcotics and many additional pharmaceuticals just to be able to function, to now just using my MMJ and about half of the meds I was on previously — no more narcotics! — along with a healthier diet, I am amazed at how much better I feel.
I’ve been pleased by the response so far, and I’ll continue to make marijuana-themed jewelry because I am a firm supporter of the legalization of marijuana for medical, spiritual and recreational use… Your purchase of any of those pieces will help you show your support for marijuana reform, and will also help make sure that this patient doesn’t have to go without her meds. If there is enough response, I’ll also start donating a percentage of sales of these pieces to organizations working toward reform. If you have suggestions for great orgs that are underfunded, please let me know! I’m always thrilled to have a chance to pay it forward after all of the help we’ve received along our journey out of serious poverty and the chronic threat of a return to homelessness. More

This sweet necklace features glass crystals, hand-painted tiny bat beads, opaque black Preciosa Czech glass seed beads and a skully key pendant. All findings are silver-finished steel or Tibetan silver.
The total beaded length, including the lobster clasp, is approximately 21.75″.
Metaphysically speaking, glass represents transformation, as well as communication, rebirth and the blending of elements. Think of how glass comes to be, with sand (earth) being formed into a new material with the use of fire, which cannot exist without air.

Here’s some of what I’ve been working on overnight… I’d love to hear what you think! I need to place this weekend’s supply order and receive new clasps to finish and list these, so they’ll be available in the shop mid-week or so.

This piece features rainbow obsidian chips, large black obsidian beads, silver-lined ruby red Czech glass seed beads, silver-plated skull beads and spacers, and a skull key pendant. (The skull beads flipped upside down here and I didn’t realize it until I’d put my makeshift photo studio away, but they move freely and do not stay as they’re shown.) The findings are silver-finished steel or Tibetan silver. The total beaded length, including clasp, is approximately 24.5″.

The color silver is often associated with goddess(es), the moon, psychic development, fluidity, insight, reflection and money.
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.
The color red is associated with the root chakra, physical energy, passion of all varieties, grounding, independence, courage and confidence.

After a very busy 2 days, this morning has seen 22 new items added to my shop! Here’s a peek, in no particular order… I’d love to hear what you think! (If you’re on Facebook, why not pop over when you have a sec to catch up on everything going on over there?) We are continuing to add at least 50% of all incoming funds from sales to our emergency moving fund, so every single sale is a HUGE deal to us. Thanks so much for all of your love and support, friends!
