Green and Royal Blue. The Asymmetrical Midnight Spiral Goddess Earcuff and Earring Set and it’s matching earrings were absolute joys to make, rich with these “oil-slick” like colors. Their iridescence is hypnotic – I could make jewelry from these colors all day and never get bored of them. Their otherworldly glow extends even to tarot bag fabrics, which I can never seem to leave in the fabric stores when the catch my attention. But by far, of the ones to add to the store that give me a shiver of excitement and purest burst of love are the Dragonfly Priestess Series. Copper, dragonflies and swarovski crystals made these simple, little designs so magickal for me, I can scarcely form the words for how they touch me. Read their story in the store listing – they were truly made with the purest love for the art of jewelry-making I could ever express.
I want to give mucho luv and a big shout out to the AWESOME Etsy Team of Keepers of Enchantment. A thriving, happy team of over 1,200 members, they shocked me yesterday after I joined by including my Celtic Purple Triad Single Earcuff in the beautiful Treasury Purple Haze!
I especially love the 4 Handmade Porcelain Deep Purple beads by beadfreaky. I spent almost an hour going over her wonderful, handmade beads and buttons alone, contemplating adding them to a line of designer divination and tarot bags – my next, crazy, non-beadwork project for our other Etsy store. There’s just one problem; I favorited so many of her dragonfly, tree of life, goddess and hamsa designs, I wouldn’t know where to start! How about by cleaning out my bank account and buying them all, lol!

Seriously, though, if you’re still reading this far and are an etsy seller who sells pagan wares, consider joining them. They are wonderfully generous and I can’t wait to get to know them better. This is what an extended pagan family is all about – the love.
One of our customers recently asked us for a solution to contain the 40 earcuffs she has bought from us over the years. Yes, you read that right…40 earcuffs! Feeling a little responsible for such a predicament, I happily explored options for her.
Knowing the only retail solution traditionally available was an expensive amoire, I recalled that she might be open to something more practical than pretty. In our studio our beads are packed into many, many plastic cases equipped with dividers. Asking her if that would do it, she was open to the possibility. These cases are easier to find than when I started beading.
Instead of going to a bead store where they are looked upon as an expensive supply item, try Wal Mart or JoAnns.
