The Fantastical Realm of Goddess Adornments

An Enchanting Glimpse into my Studio and Jewelry Line

Weaving Dreams and Dancing On MoonlighT

dream-weaver

A major source of inspiration for this pendent has been an ongoing fascination of mine working in the Dream Realm.  I love the moment right before I fall asleep, when my  consciousness is completely relaxed and my body goes into paralysis. I teater back and forth, in between dreams and reality…this is the point lucid dreaming can happen, it takes a while to activate, but when you do drifting into a dream state will be so much more enjoyable.

This pendent, Dream Weaver, was designed to aid one in a journey of working with lucid dreaming AND/OR simply getting a more restful nights sleep. I mixed many dream  stones together…

  • Lepidolite, the main stone in the pendent, is said to work on the level of emdream-weaverotions, easing stress and mental exhaustion in your waking life. Improving self esteem and self empowerment. Helps to stabilize mood swings and smooth out sleep disturbances.
  • Moonstone, balancing hormonal shifts. Enhances psychic abilities. Helps one to understand emotions, dreams, self discovery.
  • amethyst, third eye opener. Meditative. Improves insight and intuition. Relaxing.
  • Hematite, grounding and clear thinking.

Getting a restful night sleep is important to every aspect of our lives. Everything is connected in the Dream Weaver Web.

Tranquil Moon: Earrings for the Full Moon Woman

tranquil-moon earrings

As the moon waxes and wanes we are in constant reminder of our feminine energies rising and falling within.  A “full moon woman” as I call it, is  full of energy and life, multi-tasking and possibly mothering, either a child or a new idea or project. We are in full bloom, past the point of waxing crescent youth and not yet to wise crone.  It is a beautiful and fulfilling place to be. One must be especially cautious at this time, however to seek the balance necessary to combat burnout and to live stable and free. Luckily there are a plethora of ways to go about balance. One tactic that I have found valuable is to have a constant reminder… of all that encompasses true presence. With true presence all else will come naturally.   A reminder can come in any way shape or form. I like to double my odds with a reminder/energetic source, such as a crystal, herbs etc…

These earrings were made in honor of our womanly nature and our need for balance. They not only serve as a visual reminder of all of the majestic beauty that dwells within, but they also act as an energy source that can help to bring a sense of peace and serenity into our energy field and therefore all around us.

Aquamarine Flora Mandala

Blessings to the March Birthdays out there!!! Aquamarine, with it’s tranquil oceananic vibes  is known to be linked with the month of March. To anyone who has ever gazed into this stone can see why it’s name specifically means “aqua”-water “mar”-sea.  Aquamarine has been used as a tailsman for all those who wandered the sea in ancient times, and is still used for protective water traveaquamarine flora mandalals. aquamarine flora mandala

Aquamarine has many healing properties, including quieting and calming the mind, protecting against pollutants, clarifying perception, sharpens intellect, and clears confusion. On a spiritual level, because of it’s calming effect, it is known to be a great stone to wear during meditation as it invokes a higher state of consciousness.  I have always associated aquamarine with opening and clearing the throat chakra, bringing communication to a higher plane. Bringing me to my next point, aquamarine is known to awaken love in a tired marriage.  So if you want to ensure a long and happy marriage, maybe it would be extra insurance to adorn yourself with some aquamarine!!!

It is a great practice to wear aquamarine either on the heart chakra or on the ring finger.

To clean or recharge your aquamarine, place it in a glass dish of water and leave under the moonlight. In the morning, hold in your hands, close your eyes and align yourself with the stones energy. It will be more than happy to work with you!

This necklace macool blue waters of Croatiade of aquamarine, blue apatite, iolite and all natural brass is availible at www.goddessadornments.etsy.com

Rainbow Awakening

Ever have one of those days when just a glimmer of hope changed your whole perceptional reality? This week we had a rain spell up here in Northern California. It rained for three solid days.  One evening we noticed the color change outside and stepped out to see a vibrant glorious rainbow! Oh, springtime bliss is upon us! I could see each rainbows end anrainbowd all 5 miles of shifting color variancerainbow-awakening.  Taking a deep breath, I realized how easy it is to get caught up our life story and how a phenomena such as a rainbow can pull us back into our true selves connected with magic and transformation.

The rainbow was followed by a magnificent sunset and my inspiration was surging. Thus, these new earrings, entitled, “Rainbow Awakening” were manifested.  They are made from scratch from silver wire, hand hammered and oxidized to bring out an antiqued quality which I love. The “silver lining” is complimented by a shower of colored tourmaline, which I wire wrapped onto the frame.  In the middle I hung only the most beautiful amethyst crystals…the jewels at the end of the rainbow!

5 Ways To Ride the Waves of Inspiration

Ever hit a creative (for lack of better words)….Block??? It tends to happen from time to time and it’s okay to feel a little foggy. Although, if art is a large part of your life,  you don’t want your head in the fog so deep that the lighthouse won’t be able to steer you home!

Here are some of my favorite ways to clear my gunkies and come out crystal clear~ocean-fantasies

  • Next time your feeling Splendid!,  On Top of the World!,  Nothing can Stop you Now!, Enchanted!, Mesmorized by your influx of ideas streaming Wonderful ideas! Harness It!! And I don’t mean by staying up until 4am trying to implement them all. Simply write, scetch or get them onto something concrete, so that when you are having a down time, you can refrence your brillance and inspire even more things!
  • This one helps to be centered if your into that 🙂  basically what I like to do, is pick an aspect in nature (or maybe a country you’ve been to, or place, or even person) maybe physical or intangible.  It’s a form of meditation where you simply open your mind and allow yourself to receive.  It might take some time, it might start out as thoughts on color schemes or texture or design or materials. Both of the photo examples here on this page, “Ocean Fantasies” and “Sea of Oblivion” are  inspired by a visual meditation I did on the Sea.  Keep in mind, your viewer might not even know where you were inspired from and that has no relevance.
  • Get inspired by other peoples art! This one is so easy because art is all around us and so accessible. Even though I don’t think you would, I just have to put out there that in no way am I implying to copy someone else’s hard work and pass it off as your own original idea.  But hey, I would say 99% of artists’ fires get sparked when they see someone’s work who sea-of-oblivionthey admire. Of course, putting your own unique spin on it is what makes you an artist!
  • Learn a new trick or trade having to do with your art form or purchase a new tool or tutorial.  Perhaps your stuck-ness is a result of boredom. Upgrades are good, don’t be afraid of change!
  • And lastly, because I have lazy days too, just walk away.  I’m sure you notice the mood that sweeps over you when you are wanting to create. When that’s not there, your better off spending your time elsewhere.  And on that note…a cute little quote! “Believe in your Art, Believe in your Heart!”

Using Color Theapy in Jewelry

fairies-at-play

What does green feel like??? How about red? Black?
It is a long known fact that color can play a huge role in our emotions and mood. And in my opinion, when working with stone jewelry it is even more intense. This takes it to the next level of actually receiving the color medicine into your skin. A soft glow penetrating into your being and vibrating on such subtle notes throughout the day. This may seem obvious, but it is exactly how stone/crystal healing operates. The longer you allow yourself to be in alignment with that color, the more you are gaining the full power of it’s healing.
Here is a new piece I made entitled, Fairies at Play…and it is what inspired me to write about color today. The green is so rich and vivid, I can almost feel the calmness and serenity the effects of this stone would have on my heart if worn for even just a couple hours.
As an artist I love color, and combining color is something I have grown fearless offairies-at-play. All the colors in nature can go together. Combining multitudes of color in fashion is not only fun and beautiful, it’s therapeutic!

Sea Speaks in Visions

sea-speaks-in-visionsI just finished this elaborate seascape piece last night. It is created for a dear friend of mine who has inspired me greately throughout the years.  I love the free form wraped abalone including tighter coiles throughout which give it a fresh from the sea appeal. The drop is a mother of pearl, which also has a very organic shape and matches the abalone in an oceanic rhymic way.  For the neckline, I twisted three strands together, one of purpley toned pearls and blue apatite, one of blue irredecent sead beads and one of grey silk cord on which I hung thai silver dropletts.
