Halloween is coming!

I just added two new Halloween/fall inspired pieces of jewelry to my store.

The happy pumpkin is a pottery sculpt with glass beads and carnelian chips. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7229370

I was having so much fun with the carnelian chips I made a ring with another piece of sculpted earthenware and copper wire. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7230859

New Incense and Flower Essences Arrive!

I have been VERY busy this past week or so, and have finally gotten a few new items listed in my shop. I have FIVE new flower essences available for the first time ever, and two new incenses for your magickal needs!

First, the flower essences: Iris, Lady's Mantle, Echinecea, Mallow,and Valerian.
This is the first time I have offered the essences individually. I will make more of the single flowers and gemstone elixers available soon.
For my current selection and to find out more about flower essences, please click the link.

I'm also offering two new loose 100% Organic herbal incense blends:
These are made to assist with spells and rituals.
Please vist my Etsy shop, Summer Sea Herbs, to see everything I have to offer! I have a full selection of herbal incenses, essences, bulk herbs and magickal items!

Earth Goddess Clay Brooch

Hopefully this is the first of a long serie of Clay Goddesses ;)!

I only use natural clay: white, red or black (a very dark grey in fact).

I intend to add more engravings, stones and even incorporate some pigments or herbs...Whatever my Muse will suggest. I will most likely make more brooches, pendants...Maybe some figurines too ;).

I like this design, it's both primitive and modern with a discreet charm. I think she'll look great on a jacket or a shawl.

Computers: the final frontier

I feel like an explorer. I believe life is to be faced head on, challenges attempted and either met or tried again another day but the exploration of the computer frontier is more intimidating. Just when I think I've met a challenge and won, something new comes along and it's back to basics. But for now, I've taken the challenge of the blog! So here I am, hoping to get into the swing of things! My newest carving, a miniature orchid pot.

Custom Orders

I LOVE LOVE LOVE custom orders. Here's one I did for celticgoddessjewelry . These are a pair of capris made with black organic cotton and I also found this really cool swirly grey, black and white fabric. I did a cool gas mask applique on the left pant leg. Celtic sent me a pic of a gas mask, so I used that as a guideline. Hope you all enjoy!

You can find us here if you would like something custom made for you.

Many Blessings!

Getting Ready for the Fall...

look who made the front page on Etsy (however briefly)?

i missed it entirely, but fellow EAST'er Indigo Luna was kind enough to alert me that i'd finally, after almost a year, made it there.

Sadly, it was gone again before I had the chance to view it but one of my fellow front-pagers, Pincushion Queen, had taken screenshots and happily sent them to me.

Thank you! and YAY!

Summersea Herbs

One of my favorite Etsy sellers, as well as the woman responsible for getting this team started - meet Summersea Herbs and her latest products:
Recently i made my first purchase from Summersea Herbs (i'd wanted to buy something from her for ages and finally couldn't resist indulging myself in one of her "magickal journey" pouches, given that i'm leaving in three days for a cross-country drive). It was shipped immediately, in my mailbox three days later and PACKED with lovely goodies - beautiful scents, incense, and a wonderful note, too - i'm sure everything in that box was created and put in there with wonderful intent.

the pile beside my bed...

...is books. i read two or three at a time - generally one is fiction, one is a craft book, and one is something metaphysical. right now here's what's currently in my beside pile:

Fiction: The Fifth Sacred Thing. I'm re-reading this one after only having read it the first time a few months ago. Not sure why except perhaps that I'm out of other fiction and also thinking this might put my head in mind for the upcoming road trip. Interestingly, I appear to be reading two books by Starhawk at once, tho it wasn't a conscious choice.

Craft: Sexy Little Knits: Chic Designs to Knit and Crochet. knitting and crochet are two of my "lesser" hobbies along with spinning yarn, and i only do them when i can't make jewelry or i'm in an inspiration "lull". i also generally only do it when it's cold and am usually fascinated with creating lingerie. This book has great patterns for that. Hopefully I can finish this bikini by january.

Metaphysical: The Earth Path: Grounding Your Spirit in the Rhythms of Nature. I've always loved Starhawk for her down-to-earth, non-wishy-washy approach to things as well as her nature-focused concepts. This book serves a dual purpose as a good fluid read as well as a great guide for developing personal and group rituals to honor nature.

What have you been reading lately?
