Full Moon Update

“There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls”

-George CarlinĀ 

Last night was the full moon, it was a night of magic, setting intentions, and meditation. The evening was all about self care. I started the night with the rose moon bath bomb from the Summer spell box handmade over at Witch Baby Soap. Afterwards, I started a ritual known as 55×5, basically setting intentions by writing them out fifty five times for five days. Mind over matter. It works for me!

Today we again ventured over to the Scarlet Sage Herb Co., where i sampled their delicious “scarlet” tea (which was delicious!!) and purchased two amethyst chunks to make into necklaces because I have SOLD OUT of them! *throws confetti* It always makes my day when people love the items I make

Afterwards, the shop assistants and I wandered down the way to get some ice cream, but the shop was closed for another thirty minutes…. so I drug them to the thrift store… which they also love, where I found some pretty great items! A vintage glasbake bowl, a corningware dish with a detachable handle, and a milk glass soapdish from Avon shaped like an owl!

The whole premise of my company is to repurpose, and reuse as much as possible. Sure I make my own findings, but I use a lot of things like sea glass, vintage beads and jewelry that has been broken, and rocks from various sources. It means so much to me to waste nothing. The majority of my set up was handmade from scraps by my partner in his garage. He used old fence panels, scraps from people remodeling their houses, and who even knows what to make my tables and sign. I have also used a lot of vintage glassware my dad owns in my display. These days I am using a ton of driftwood as well!

Here comes the rain again

Tomorrow it is supposed to rain, so today we did all the big things that needed to be done. Mostly this meant waiting around for things to happen… the shop assistants grew restless, and tired of having to “be patient”

She was over my shenanigans

We finished up the errands, and meandered on home… where I struggled to parallel park my van. Oh, San Francisco parking… I love to hate you. Haha!

Once we were parked, I made lunch for the now starving assistants, and shut myself away to work for a bit. Magic happened!

petrified wooden slices from Madagascar, and amethyst druzy chunk

All three are available in my shop right now – Turquoise T-Rex, where I am also having a huge summer sale to move inventory! Spend $25, and code “supersale17” gets you 40% off! This kind of deal is pretty darn amazing! I will be adding to the shop over the next week, so keep an eye open for new items every day!

For now? I am off to tuck the shop assistants into bed. They had a long day.

Hello from sunny San Francisco!

Apologies for the long break in writing! Life and business have been busy, busy, busy! In August, I enrolled back into college! It had been thirteen years since I last was in the classroom! Luckily, I am able to do all of my course work virtually, which allows me to continue to travel with my little family. But, fear not! I have been busy creating many new treasures since I last updated! Check out my shop!

Copper, brass, and raw gemstones are the current spotlight in my work. I love making minimal, and stunning, pieces. Things that can be worn day to day. My personal favorites at the moment, are the art nouveau brass hoop earrings I just started making. Simple, yet elegant!

On one last note, in honor of mother’s day, I am having a 30% off sale! Use coupon code “happymothersday” at checkout!

Thanks for reading, and have a great day!!!
