Sirens & Sailors

SIRENS & SAILORS
May 17, 2017
7:00 pm
{MDT ~ USA}
Crowning Elements

Steer clear of the Black Lagoon they say. Be wary of the sweet songs on the breeze. For these waters, be treacherous to those with curious souls and golden-pearl dreams. Dismiss the flash of luminous scales on fin-shaped tails and the tangled hairs of seaweed. For in these waters mermaids be and pirate hearts be sailing.

This Beltane, I invite you to explore the mystical ocean realm. To brave the deep in search of spellbinding sirens and black-hearted pirates. To nourish yourself in the elemental waters and discover the path to your hidden truth and wisdom.

All of these items will be listed in my store at 7:00 pm {MDT-USA} on May 17, 2017.
Here’s a handy, dandy time zone convertor.  {I’m in Albuquerque, New Mexico USA}

A few notes…

~I’m unable to reserve any of the items in this series before they go live.  So be ready to purchase at the starting bell!
~I accept direct payment through etsy with any major credit card or PayPal.
~I ship internationally.  It’s $15 via USPS international first class.  Domestic shipping is $10.
~I will ship to the address on file with Etsy, so please make sure this is accurate.
~The pendulums in this series are one of a kind, if you see something you like…Grab It!!  I might not be able to make another just like it.
~All items purchased ship within 5 days.  {I’ll need time to package these up all pretty.}
~Etsy does NOT have sticky carts.  What does this mean?  If you put an item in your cart and don’t immediately check out, some one else can still buy it out from under you.  I know that stinks and I wish Etsy would update that. 🙁  Please check out right away to make sure you get the pendulum you want.  Also Etsy now combines every item in your cart under one purchase, even if the items are from multiple sellers.  I recommend removing unwanted items from your cart prior to the sale.  {I’m working on my own website, so hopefully you won’t have to worry about this for my next series.}

Sirens & Sailors was really fun to create!  Thank you for your support which allows me to create with my hands, my heart, and my artist soul.

I really enjoyed my excursion into the dark, dank depths of the Catacombs.  Every series I think “These are my new favorites!” and I couldn’t agree more in regards to this series which has been my most labor intensive to date.  To bend, shape, and saw simple sheet metal into a vast variety of forms; to create texture, patina, and transfer metals with chemistry; and to see my designs go from simple drawings to functional art that you can hold in your hand is extremely rewarding.  Thank you for your support which allows me to create with my hands, my heart, and my artist soul.

The Wild Hunt

The Wild Hunt
May 11, 2016

{MDT ~ USA}
 
 
Faerie riders on noble steeds gallop in wild pursuit.
Answering the call of the clarion trumpets, the hounds have caught the scent.
Two courts divided by Light & Dark, united by The Huntsman’s Bow.
Riding through the Tangled Wood, chasing a Solstice Moon.
Fading into shadowed moor with unsuspecting Quarry.
The Wild Hunt is a foot!

The Wandering Star Pendulum Box

The Wandering Star
A drift at sea, which way to go?  By the light of the sparkling constellations you spot an ancient map secreted behind the ship’s Maiden.  X marks the spot to your heart’s desire.  The compass rose will be your guide. 
 All that is required of you is to get a little lost and wander around the wonder.
available here…
 
 
I’m now making these beautiful, one of a kind, hand-forged pendulum boxes.  A wonderful compliment to your Crowning Elements Pendulum and a great way to keep your pendulum safe, secure, and protected.  Hours of craftsmanship go into each unique pendulum box.  These will be extremely limited and not available via custom orders.
 I make them when the mood strikes…so if you see one you like, better grab it!
 
 
 I etched the brass with a beautiful world map design and patina-ed the metal.  I created one of a kind, digital art for the inside of the box.  Along with my favorite quote from J.R.R Tolkien ~ “Not all those who wander are lost.”  A sprinkling of gold stars sealed in resin adorns the back of the maiden figurehead on the top of the box.  I have layered a treasure map along with some tattered cloth for accent.  The box ties with a gorgeous nave blue satin ribbon.
 
 
Measurements
Length: 4 inches
Width: 2-1/2 inches
Height: 1 inch
Your Crowning Elements Pendulum nestled in it’s velvet bag will fit comfortably in this box.
 
 More creations available in my shop…

A Few Announcements…

Now Accepting Custom Orders

I’m accepting custom orders again.  Yay!!  So if you have been wanting a custom pendulum now is the time to contact me.  Act fast, as custom orders will only be available until March 31, 2016.  I’ll be taking a break in April and May to create some new and exciting goodies!!  Custom orders will return again this summer.



Past Custom Order Creations

Custom Order Guidelines:

My current time line for custom work is 3-4 weeks. We can discuss your ideas and I will sketch a design. Once we finalize the design, I require a deposit of 50% of the quoted price before ordering supplies and starting the piece. Production times vary with each piece, so I will confirm my timeline {usually 2 weeks but longer if I am waiting for supplies}. Once I have completed the piece, I will list your custom item under a reserved listing via Etsy with the remaining unpaid balance and shipping costs.

Beltane Series

Also I am pleased to announce the return of the Beltane Series.  It has been several years since I have done a series for this magickal time of year.  I can’t wait to share this year’s theme {all hush, hush for now} and I’m looking forward to trying some new techniques to bring my vision for this series to reality. 

I am SO ready for spring!!
In The Studio
I’m currently creating in the studio.  It has been a slow start to the year, but I’m ok with that.  I have so many half finished pendulums lying around my work bench, so this is what I have been tackling.  Along with a few custom orders that have come in.  Thank you very much!!  I have several fantastic new pendulum series planned for this year.  The one for Samhain is blowing my mind…so much research already! 

My soldering station has not been this clean in months!
 
I’m so grateful for your support…the likes, comments, and shares mean so much!  I look forward to an amazing year of creativity.
Brightest Blessings,
Jessica
