Mermaid’s Crown

IMG_4650

Brand new to my shop! The ideal crown for mermaids, sea priestesses, and devotees of ocean deities (such as Poseidon, Amphitrite, Aphrodite, Ran, Aegir, Njord, Manannan, or the Nine Undines). It would also be perfect for a bride to wear at her summer, Boho, or sea-themed wedding.

The central pendant is a Mykonos cast copper scallop shell (with beautiful blue-green patina), on a chain of hand-worked copper links featuring blue apatite rounds interspersed with genuine shells, half-electroplated orange/metallic silver Czech crystal rondelles, and electroplated teal Czech crystal faceted rounds. The handmade chain attaches to a continuous antiqued copper chain which molds easily to the shape of your head, making it extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear. The crown measures about 22 1/2 inches, with the pendant measuring about 1/2 inch. There are no clasps to fiddle with, you just rest the crown atop your head and go!

IMG_4655IMG_4683IMG_4662IMG_4657The crown is $50, however it is eligible for layaway provided said layaway plan complies with my policies. I encourage everyone to please take a look at these; they have recently been updated, the biggest change being that as of 7/24/15 I now require that all NEW layaway plans be paid down within four months. This change has been necessary because I have a LOT of people who will ask for a layaway, make maybe one payment after several months, and then the item just sits there in my inventory–which causes me to lose money because I spent money on supplies to make it and have still made only a fraction of that money back. In some cases, this has continued for six months or more. (Literally; I still have some things on layaway that I made and put up for sale after GemFaire in November. While I am truly grateful that people want to buy my items at all, and I DO plan to continue offering the layaway option, this is something I cannot afford.)

And finally, for the curious–yes, that IS my head in the photos, modeling the crown, and yes, my hair is currently platinum blonde. Why? Well, I bleached it with plans to dye it either cotton candy pink or aqua blue (or both, in succession, since I work from home now and don’t have to worry about complying with any company dress codes other than my own)–but then Odin liked it platinum so much that it has stayed at that stage for a while. (He also has a thing for disguises and masks, so it WILL end up being one of the aforementioned colors eventually.)

 

Dowsing Necklace: Iron Pyrite Pendulum Pendant with Red Pyrite Beads and Carved Pyrite Roses

IMG_4604

Brand new to the shop: if you’ve been looking for a special pendulum to use in communication with Loki, I’ve got just the thing for you. (And it also doubles as a dazzling necklace!)

A genuine iron pyrite pendulum adorns a strand of 15 8 mm AAA red pyrite rounds, alternating with 6 carved pyrite roses, lemon quartz sparkle Czech crystal rondelles, half-electroplated golden orange/metallic silver Czech crystal rondelles, and shiny purple hematite spacers.

IMG_4597IMG_4601IMG_4607IMG_4616IMG_4603Fastens securely with a hand crafted solid stainless steel S-clasp that will not discolor or break. Strung on professional-quality Beadalon stringing wire.

To use your necklace as a pendulum, simply remove it, fasten the clasp, and grasp the clasp between your thumb and forefinger, allowing the pendulum to move freely.

Necklace circumference: 19 1/2 inches
Pendulum pendant: 1 1/4 inches x 1/2 inch x 3/4 inch

This pendulum/necklace combo would be perfect for a godspouse of Loki to use for communication with Him (since pyrite is a gem many of His devotees associate with Him) or it could be dedicated to Whomever the color palette and gemstones resonate with for you. It has not been blessed or consecrated, but I would be happy to do that for you in a small ritual at no extra charge.

This dowsing necklace is $120. Layaway is available; please take a look at my layaway policy (which was updated just the other day for new layaways only), and then contact me if you’d like to set something up!

Mysteries of Isis Necklace

An elegant, polished necklace featuring a large freeform chunk of lapis lazuli, hand painted in gold with a swirling design evocative of a question mark or swirl of water or wind, on a strand of 24 blue-violet jade rounds, alternating with 10 holographic quartz chunks (filled with luminous rainbow fire), fire-polished aurora borealis white/grey Czech crystal rondelles, and faceted electroplated metallic gold Czech crystal rounds.

This necklace is glowing and ethereal while at the same time being regal and impressive–equally suitable for ritual wear or everyday office wear. Although designed with Isis in mind, it could easily be worn as a devotional piece for any deities with whom the color palette and symbolism resonate for you.

The necklace is $100. Layaway with installment payments is available (such as two payments of $50 or four payments of $25); please take a look at my layaway policy and then get in touch with me if you’d like to discuss this!

A note about my shop menu, perfume oils, and incense

First off, I’ve made some changes to my shop menu yet again. Having decided that sorting products according to pantheon was made of fail, I’ve gone back to filing them according to what specific type of item they are (necklaces, pendulums, perfume oil, etc.).

The new menu is as follows:

The Spiritual Services category has been deleted; since there was only one item in it (Oracular Seidhr), it seemed more efficient to let that and Ebooks share a category.

Also, all handspun yarn has been removed from the shop, as there wasn’t that much of it left and it’s been a while since anyone has bought any, regardless. (The ritual cords are still there, and I can always start a separate shop for the yarn if I ever decided to sell it again.) This setup makes it more obvious that the core of my business is now jewelry. (And if you like my new rosary necklaces, I have some even more exciting plans for my jewelry line in the future!)

This also leaves me with one extra category, which I have plans for.

Three other very important changes (two of which were inspired by Nono’s post from yesterday):

1. All of my 5 mL perfume oils can now be purchased via ONE single listing. Much like my perfume oil sample pack listings, this listing includes descriptions of all the perfume and cologne oils I currently offer.  (And will be updated as I continue to add new varieties.) To purchase a 5 mL bottle of perfume or cologne oil, simply purchase this listing, then in the “notes to seller” section let me know which oil you want. (If you want more than one oil, change the quantity in the dropdown box to match the number of bottles, or the number of varieties, you need.)

2. Along the same lines, all of the incense types I currently offer can now also be purchased via ONE listing (which will be updated as new types are added). When making a purchase, let me know in “notes to seller” which variety you need. If you want more than one 10-pack, or more than one incense type, change the quantity as needed in the dropdown box.)

3. I have deactivated  all of the incense blends containing artificial fragrance oils. Going forward, all of the incense I offer will be made with pure essential oils ONLY, suitable for aromatherapy. (The same holds true with candles. Soaps and perfume oils have always been made with essential oils only, and will continue to be so.)

Make sense? Please let me know if you have any questions! Hopefully this new arrangement will make it easier to find exactly what you’re looking for, quickly and without guesswork! (Since you won’t have to wade through dozens of perfume and incense listings to see what jewelry I have to offer, and you won’t need to guess which category an item such as a rose necklace might be in.) I am also planning to set up a fully branded shop of my own OFF-Etsy at some point further down the road (after my rebranding is finished and some further developments to my product line have been made), and streamlining the shop in this way will make that eventual transition a lot simpler.

The Anubis Cord

Beth:

Another rave review from a happy customer, this time for a custom ritual cord for Anubis she commissioned from me.

This seems like a good time to remind folks that I DO accept custom orders for both “regular” ritual cords (which include charms and beads) and “plain” cords (which do not include charms or beads but are still energetically consecrated and soaked with your choice of essential oils added to the water. The purpose of both types of cord is to provide a physical energetic link to your deity. You can find both of those listings in my shop here.

Originally posted on The Jackal's Dance:

I recently commissioned Beth to make a ritual cord for Anubis.

It was Anubis who insisted I get the cord, both so I have an energy link to him, and so I have something to hold on to when my anxiety gets bad.  While I have a bunch of jewelry that’s tuned to his energy, (including my former collar–I’m making a new one once the beads get here, one that honors Anubis as [aspect]) he wanted me to have the cord as well.  He requested a plain cord so that I can wrap it with my headscarves (which might take a couple tries to get right, plus my veiling Rule has been relaxed–I’m only to veil if I want to, or if he specifically requests it.)

It arrived in the mail a few days ago.

The picture of the finished cord..

It’s black and gold with gold sparkly bits, and it’s so…
