Spellbinding: Calming Amazonite

0

Being a tortured artist, and knowing what its like to suffer from such things as anxiety and over stimulation from being highly sensitive, I was inspired to add another Limited Edition Spiritual Skullerfly Crystal Wreath to my Spellbinding Collection. Clients have already told me how much they love the ones I have made so far so I decided I want to continue bringing a little magic to all of your worlds through my creations.

This time I was inspired by one of my favorite calming stones… Amazonite which is known to help heal and balance both the throat and heart chakras. What I love about this stone is that you can literally find zen just getting lost in the soothing shades of pastel greens, blues and even sometime browns that this stone naturally gifts to us.

When I first decided to make this it was important to me to bring the feeling of the stone to life through all the other accents. This also meant it would take me a little longer to research and find the perfect materials. Thanks to my Mother In Law, Judy (who always believes in my work and is always on the look out for things for me) combined with some great finds from some wonderful small business craft suppliers I was able to bring my vision to life.

The Skullerfly’s wings, body and eyes as well as the twigs (from nature) have all been touched with blue-green iridescent glitter for that whimsical sparkle I love so much. Hanging from it are the Amazonite rosary crystals as well as a clear crystal point. It was created during Beltane, blessed with incense, charged by the Flower Full Moon and as always made with loving intentions.

If this special piece speaks to you it can be purchased in my Etsy Shop. It is perfect for hanging anywhere you want to feel a sense of calm and zen! The colors also make a beautiful accent for you mermaid and water signs who love ocean and sea decor.

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!

Spellbinding: Sweet Dreams & Peace Of Mind

0

I loved making my Limited Edition Spiritual Skullerfly Crystal Wreaths last Summer. I was inspired to find a way to use my talents to spread some light, love, healing intentions and a little magic into the world. Each one being inspired by the crystal rosary beads I chose.

Since there are so many wonderful crystal stones out there I thought why stop at 4.. why not make another one that may call out to someone that needs it. My end goal was to create this decorative piece of art that would help to invoke and manifest sweet dreams and peace of mind for whomever it speaks to.

So I decided to go with my favorite bedside stone… Howlite. It is also known to help heal the crown chakra.

Howlite being a beautiful mix of whites and grey I went with the calming colors of white and silver, which are quite perfect with it being a very snowy winter this year. The Skullerfly’s wings have iridescent glitter on them and the skull eyes and body are accented in silver glitter. It has faux twigs that are dipped in silver glitter and ice crystal like beads for extra sparkle. Like the other wreaths, this one also features a clear crystal point and has been blessed with incense. As the others were charged by the Strawberry Full Moon, this one has been charged by last night’s Snow Full Moon.

If this special piece speaks to you it can be purchased in my Etsy Shop. It is perfect for hanging near your bed or anywhere you like to relax and unwind. It also would make for lovely Yule or altar decor!

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!

Creature Feature: Mutter Museum

philly mutter (4)The Mutter Museum in Philly was mine and Frank’s #1 reason for wanting to go to Philly when we took our road trip with Mike and Heather back in March. Knowing how excited we were to go there Mike and Heather even paid for our admission as an added thank you for Frank driving the 11 hours to get us there (yes our friends rock!).

Part of the reason I was so intrigued by this place is because anatomy was my favorite subject in art school. Then you add on all my own “fun” ailments, my love for oddities and anything remotely macabre and that pretty much sums things up. Needless to say when we went there I was mesmerized by the place. We are both still so happy we got to experience it in person. Recently on an episode of Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour show we got to experience it all over again. As we were watching it we kept saying “ohhh we were there! We saw that!” ha ha.

I had been following the museum for many years before getting to go there and knew that every year they put up their Mutter Tree for Christmas. Often people send in ornaments to donate that go with the theme of the museum. Well this year I decided to donate one of my 2016 Santa Claws Christmas Ornaments to the Mutter Tree! Well go and behold I opened this post on Instagram this morning and could not be more thrilled!

So thrilled it arrived in one piece and is now a part of this incredible museum’s holiday tradition!  See other ways my art and handmade creations have been featured and displayed on my official portfolio website! Also if you like this ornament, there are other versions of it available in my Etsy shop. They are one of a kind so once they are gone they are gone! Happy Holidays everyone!

Stay Spooky!
