The Fantastical Realm of Goddess Adornments

An Enchanting Glimpse into my Studio and Jewelry Line

Spiraling into Suductive Pendents

In recent days I have decided to expand on a new jewelry idea (or at least new for Goddess Adornments). It is…making pendents!!! Thus far, I have always been attracted to complete the full necklace all thespiral-seduction way to the clasp. Which I will still be doing when the moment is right.

I have realized what a great adventure it is to make just the pendent. Not only can I put more time and energy into a smaller section, but I love all of the illusionary benefits of working with wire.  Of course, all of my pendents are made with sterling wire, oxidized and hand polished to bring out the detail in the wire work.

Today I ordered a bunch of hand dyed silk ribbon in beautiful colors to be placed with the pendents (I’ll show you a pick when they arrive).  In addition to ribbon I will also be offering a selection of chain or leather cord. Look for such options in my etsy shop within the next couple of weeks.  You will also notice within my shop a new section “seductive pendents” where you will see the pendents being added as they are made. Here is one to kick off this new phase rightly entitled  “Spiral Seduction” Click HERE to read more about this pendent. spiral-seduction

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!

Arizonia Dreamin’…A Shoppers Guide to the Tucson Gem Show

Staring out at my tucson-arizoniamisty Northern California landscape, I can almost feel the golden Arizona sun pulling me south into a state of captivity…the Tucson Gem Show beckons my arrival.  In only a handful of days I will be scoping out one of the most glorified gem shows on the planet. Only spending three days there, I decided that the efficiency of my time is of up most importance.  So here I have summarized my plan of attack so that I can shop enjoyably still have energy to hang out with friends and dance under the desert sky.

First on the list is, well, to make a list. I happen to be a list freak, but if you aren’t keen on takin’ tabs, here’s a simple way. Go through your inventory and see if there is any stone, color, shape, metal, finding that you are short of. simple and it makes sense so you don’t duplicate too much on what you already have. At the show, you can review to make sure you at least got the important things.

Next, I would suggest acquiring a Tucson Gem Show Guide. This will show you the “it” spot for your personal conquest. In person, they will be at most major hotels in the Tucson area (pick one up for a resource). But if you like to plan, like me, you can go online at www.colored-stone.com to check out the Tucson Gem Show Guide online and take some time to really notice what stands out, look at websites, see exact locations etc… highly recommended.

So now that you are all squared with where you’ll be shopping, get together your paperwork, copies of resale license, business license and business cards. This will be your ticket to the exclusive wholesale shows.

After each day of shopping, while it’s fresh in your mind, try to categorize your findings by price so you can remember when you get home. Plastic baggies and a sharpie are brilliant ways to do this. Plus, don’t forget to put your receipts somewhere safe!  And when you get home…well that’s a whole other story. But be nice to yourself and pick up your studio before you leave, maybe even go get yourself a couple extra bead organizers…I’m sure you’ll use ’em!!

Peace and take care!!
