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.

Albuquerque Pagan Pride Day 2013

Once again I had the honor of attending the Albuquerque Pagan Pride Day Celebration which was held on September 29.  I always share a booth with my Mom, Sharon of Touch of the Goddess.  This year’s theme was Harvest Fae and the organizers encourage vendors to dress in costume and decorate their booths.  We decided this year to completely change the look of our booth and I’m so glad that we did.  We started shopping and gathering supplies in May!  We wanted the booth to look like a faery-gypsy caravan.  I’m so pleased with the way every thing came together.  Take a look!

All set up and ready to go!

I always do a “test run” of my table to make sure that I have everything and also to save time during the day of the event.  So these close up shots were taken a few days before the event. 

My table cloth started with purple shimmery fabric from JoAnns followed by a velvet throw with fringe that I had purchased several years ago from Hobby Lobby.  The picture frames, collector’s box, and chalk board I found at hobby lobby as well.  {Thank goodness for sales and coupons!!}

I filled the collector’s box with all the wonderful things I thought a faery would collect during their worldly travels…keys, citrine stones, sea shells, sparkly bits, tobacco {for blessings…this is a pagan event}, feathers, moss, little birds, old photos, and rose quartz.  I found the cute little chalkboard signs at an antique store and the fortune teller card I purchased from A Fanciful Twist.  And of course I couldn’t forget to add my business cards from moo.com.

I just love the cute door knob card holder I made.  I started with a glass door knob from Hobby Lobby and added brass wire and a bit of glitter.  The spools of velvet ribbon and the metal crown came from an antique store.

I upholstered 12×12 picture frames to use as my pendulum displays.  Just remove the glass and add a little batting and fabric.

Now on to my costume!!  I decided that I didn’t want to go as a faery, I wanted to go as a faun.

The oxblood jacket is vintage velvet.  {I plan to wear this jacket all fall…I just love it!}  The scarf I found at World Market and the vest on ebay.  I purchased the faun horns from Voodoo Soap and Beads.  Everything else I had in my closet.  I made my Pendulum Maker badge with resin paper and other ephemera. 

{Couldn’t resist adding a photo of me “mugging” my dog, Logan…}

I had such a wonderful time at this event…talking with friends, meeting new people, and sharing a wonderful autumn day with our pagan community.  Can’t wait for next year!

Ostara Blessings to You
Ostara by Amanda Clark

Yay!  It’s the first day of spring.  Here in Albuquerque, the trees are starting to blossom and the spring flowers are lazily reaching for the sun.  I am so ready for warmer weather…I’m tired of dressing like the abominable snow man to walk Logan!

Ostara is a time of renewal and rebirth. Take some time to celebrate the new life that surrounds you in nature…walk in the park, lay in the grass, hike through a forest. As you do so, observe all the new things beginning around you…plants, flowers, insects, birds. Today the light and dark are in perfect balance.  Are you?  Time to look at aspects of your life that are throwing you off kilter.  Do you need to let something or someone go.  Or perhaps you need to draw something new into your life.  Now is the time to renew your commitment to yourself and your path.
{Learn more about Ostara HERE.}

New Techniques
etched copper tube

The last few months I have learned many new techniques to incorporate into my creations.  I am so excited to show you!  All of these technique are a little more labor intensive, so I will slowly be adding new items to my etsy shop

I want to thank all of my wonderful clients who have encouraged me and purchased one of my creations.  Because of you, I am able to do what I love everyday.  Your lovely feedback, sharing my work with your friends and family, sharing your pendulum and meditation experience with me, and connecting with my via social media are such a blessing.  Thank you!

Brightest Blessings and Happy Ostara,
Jessica
