A Candle For Spring

I originally made this candle just for myself and my own personal welcoming of spring but I loved it so much I wanted to offer it in my shop. In many mythologies and particularly in the lore of old Europe from which I drew my inspiration, springtime is a special time of rejuvenation, rebirth, and the arrival of new hope.

Green Awakening Candle:

Vivid green soy wax with a 1/2 wooden wick. Scented with essential oils of rosemary, bergamot, lavender, rose, vetiver, and lime. Decorated with gold and green glitters. Like most of my other candles, this one is available in 4oz, 7oz, and 11oz sizes. $11-17

Happy springtime!

Glasses Chains!

I don’t personally wear glasses, but everyone else in my family does and so I’ve been inspired to make beaded glasses chains. (And if you’re like me and don’t wear eyeglasses, they also work great on sunglasses!) All feature relatively small, lightweight beads so they won’t cause headaches and are finished with (depending on the design) either black or clear-white rubber grips. And of course–inspired by archaeology and lore!


Egyptian-Inspired:

Focus and Memory II:

Since my first focus and memory chain was put on layaway almost immediately I created a second variation with some different stones, shapes, and patterns, but based on the same inspiration: stones described in gem-lore to help with concentration, focus, stress-relief, and enhancing memory. Carnelian, amethyst, hematite, smoky quartz, and black obsidian. $25

Nazar:

A fun protection against the Evil Eye, featuring Nazar-style eye beads and multicolored glass seed beads. $18
