Spellbinding: Handmade Grottan Pride

0

Leave it to my love of Jim Henson and my gelfling spirit animal Deet to inspire me creatively once again!

I am so excited to share my newest creation. For a while I have been wanting to have a Grottan Clan Sigil made and after getting more familiar with sculpting these past months I wondered if I could make one myself and if so how would I even pull it off with the design not being a conjoined sigil.

I also knew I wanted to make the center out of an actual black gemstone crystal so it would also be a grounding and protection sigil. I had planned to get something the next time I went to one of our local holistic shops and decided to put the project idea on hold until I made the trip.

Well as the universe would have it.. it brought the stone to me. I received a free gift as a thank you with my 1st Mindful Souls subscription box and it was a round black obsidian on a whimsical knit cord necklace! Seriously, it could not have been more perfect visually and with perfect timing.

I am normally not my biggest fan but actually did a little happy dance when this was fully dry. Not only because it’s what I had hoped for, but because now It will also be a reminder that I challenged myself and a reflection of my gratitude to the universe for giving me that little extra push I needed to create my vision.

Spellbinding: Courageous Tiger’s Eye

0

When it comes to art or life in general I turn to Tiger’s Eye to give me courage, inner strength, confidence and to balance my solar plexus chakra. It is such a mesmerizing stone to look at and has now inspired me in a new way. I have used it to create and add another Limited Edition Spiritual Skullerfly Crystal Wreath to my Spellbinding Collection. Some more handmade magic to share with the world.

When looking at Tiger’s Eye it is easy to embrace its warm, swirly reflective color tones. I knew it was going to be perfect to create this particular wreath during Mabon and what better time to bless it than under the Harvest Full moon.

It wasn’t until this past weekend that I actually had the time and the perfect weather to photograph it. I wanted to wait until the leaves changed to really have the ideal background that embraces the warmth of what I created. I am so glad that I waited. I am also grateful to my husband Frank who enjoys a good off road adventure in our truck to find the perfect locations to photograph my work. I think it’s very important that these wreaths be photographed in nature as they are inspired by the magical gifts that nature gives us.

If this special piece speaks to you it can now be purchased in my Etsy Shop. It is perfect for hanging anywhere you want to feel a sense of self confidence and inner strength. The colors also make a beautiful accent for my fellow Autumn lovers and fire signs who love to decorate using the firey colors of Fall.

Because these are Limited Edition they are one-of-a-kind and only one of each crystal will be made. With their added symbolism they are perfect for a sentimental gift or to splurge on yourself for an extra pick me up!
