Usually, I share one of a kind pieces here. But I also find a great joy in making made to order pieces. Letting my mind work out new designs while my hands move across familiar shapes and patterns is an integral part of this work for me. ✨ Purchasing my made to order pieces keeps me in coffee and silver between collections! And you sweet peaches have certainly bolstered me with made to order purchases as I tease apart the sticky bits of the honeybee collection on which I am nearly ready to start sawing! ✨ And speaking of sharing made to order designs, here is a new one. I made this baltic amber necklace with a sort of shadow box twist design a few months ago! I finished it, tried it on to see how the warm orange looked against the dark oxidization while resting about the neck, and then I never took it off. Ooph! ✨ Hoping to have this listing in the shop tonight.
It has been a minute, huh?? I needed a little social media detox. I have been feeling a little disenchanted lately with regards to Instagram, and needed to do a bit of a brain cleanse. And so, I am back with a spring in my step and will commence with the regular sharing of art and words now! ✨ Speaking of which, I put some words on the blog about my social media detox and thoughts on art as business and authentic sharing. ✨ I am glad to be back and boy oh boy, I cant wait to show you everything I am working on!
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.
