First, I am super excited to share my new fibro warrior/spoonie pendants. I’ve made the first batch with purple ribbons, but the ribbon color and cord color/type are customizable. Check out the listing in the fundraiser for more info.
I’ve also added several auction items donated by ZenithJade Creations, all starting at just $1 plus shipping.
Citrine Nugget Keychain
Jade Heart Keychain
Glass & Pearl Keychain
And some sweet new lightweight wooden pendant designs, too.
Flower Goddess Necklaces
Simple Wooden Feather Necklaces
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.)
I’d absolutely love to hear what you think of the new goodies. Wishing you all a beautiful Sunday!

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!
Baubles & Blessings-Exclusive Art by Starla Moore Pendants

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,

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.

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

Aside from Michelle’s custom owl prayer beads, these beauties have been added to the shop! Any of these would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift; the code “MOM” will take 20% off your order through the end of the month. ❤ I’d love to hear what you think of the new additions!
