I just put some last words about the Mossflower Collection up on the blog. Link in the profile if you want to take a gander! 🌿
✖️Reserve a Pair of Yavanna Earrings! ✖️ Alright friends, I finally heard back from the lapidarist who cut these luminous, high-domed prehnites and got a number on how many more she could cut. So now its time to reserve a pair if you would like me to make some for you! ✨ I have added a listing to my Etsy shop (direct link in the profile) with the quantity of how many I have the capacity to make. So if you would like to reserve a pair, purchase the deposit listing with a quantity of 1, and that will save you a pair! ✨ In a few days I will take down the deposit listing and let my lapidarist know how many to cut for me. (Keep in mind that I wont be making more after this batch, so its now or never, friends!) ✨ Once all the earrings are made, I will send out final invoice listings before mailing them to all the Ladies of the wood, forest nymphs, wood wives, and Vala who claimed a pair.
Phew! For the past several days I have been grinding away countless hours at the bench in order to get all my Made to Order pieces finished and in the mail. What a patient, generous bunch you are! ✨ I should be hearing back soon from the lapidarist who cut those scrumptious high dome, faceted prehnites featured in the Yavanna earrings. So stay tuned here for more info on the last batch of Yavanna Earrings!
My friends, the love that you have shown the Mossflower Collection has left me breathless. - 🌿 Artisan work can be tough because you must lose yourself in the process by following the threads of intuition, the difficult part being that there is no guarantee regarding the reception. Before this collection went live, I had a moment where I thought “I am so proud of this collection, I let springtime and Tolkien and prehnite sweep me up and I truly love every design for its own self.” And in that same moment I also thought, “But what if nothing sells.” It is a bit scary to put hundreds of hours and precious stores of gemstones and silver into creative expression when there is no way to know if the work will resonate with others. - 🌿 But resonate it did! Over the past few weeks I have had hundreds of comments and messages with words of encouragement, stories of similar experiences with art and nature, and even photos from one lovely person who was seeing my words and art exemplified in her own world. - 🌿 And then last night so many of you claimed a piece of this collection for yourself, this collection that holds Tolkien’s words under the stones and springtime in the solder joins. This collection that I put everything into for the past six weeks, and which will carry a bit of myself with it to various parts of the world. I am stunned. I am speechless. I am ever so thankful for your being here. Your support of this little art of mine means more than you could ever know. - 🌿 I will begin work on the next collection soon! I am going to wait for a message from the universe as to what direction I should take, I think that is the best way to.... wait... do you hear that buzz...? Sounds like a honeybee. ✨🐝🌻😉
