PS: I was unable to ship last week due to a flare brought on by storm preparation and celebrating the 10 year anniversary of our first date. I’m aiming to ship again this Wednesday.

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!

More new pretties for a good cause!

I had a few spoons available for easy work tonight, so I made some adorable new thank you gifts for the fundraiser happening now over on Facebook. Included among them are some exclusive pendants made by Art by Starla Moore just for our fundraisers last year when we were working to move from Tennessee to the Pacific Northwest; I’d misplaced the last few and just found them again. Perfect timing!

Hubby and I are both disabled. I have fibro along with PCOS and a number of related issues, while he is still on his diagnosis journey. We are both only able to work from home, and we are blessed that he has a steady part-time job to which he telecommutes. It’s been a pretty rough few months for us with a shockingly dead holiday season for my shop. We’re working hard to find ways to cover things like transportation to our many medical appointments, small personal/hygiene needs as they arise, meds not covered by insurance (particularly CBD tincture, which adds up at a $30 bottle weekly), and food for the portion of the month our SNAP benefits do not cover.

Your support — whether through purchases via my shop, contributions to our fundraisers or helping to boost the signal on Facebook or elsewhere — is so very much appreciated and makes a huge difference!

Much love and many blessings,
❤ Bri

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,
Bri

Wisdom: OOAK Necklace with Dragon Vein Agate & FaceARTifacts Pendant

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES
This gorgeous, one of a kind piece features a combination of shimmery dark gold Czech glass seed beads, dragon vein agate (also known as fire crackle agate), shimmery green Czech glass rondelles and bright copper spacers. A stunning pendant handmade by the talented Deveon from FaceARTifacts hangs from an antiqued copper bail with a dragonfly design.
SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThe approximate length is 20.5″. The pendant hangs down a total of 2.75″ from the beaded strand. This piece can be shortened on request; please contact me before ordering to make arrangements. Depending on the desired size, there may be a small restringing fee.

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.

Copper tends to stimulate and encourage optimism, independence, harmony, luck, sexuality, intuition and general vitality. Copper is a wonderful conductor of healing energy and its properties are useful in many areas of healing.

Giveaway & auction extended through Tuesday!

Heya, friends! My Friday the 13th auction is still running and has been extended by 24 hours. It will end tomorrow night at 7:00 Pacific time, a little over 25 hours from now. All of the pieces shown in the collage are up for bid, along with many others. As I type, there are a dozen pieces without bids and many more with just 1-2 bids. There is also a door prize giveaway!

Not only will the proceeds from this auction help support a hard-working disabled couple with limited income, but we are also donating 10% of this month’s proceeds (after PayPal fees) to Nar Nar’s Voyages to help a little girl battling leukemia and her family in their time of need.
