All The Leaves on The Trees are Falling

originally posted Oct 2015

Glistening MaplesWell, it’s a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush…            Van Morrison – Moondance

Man, I LOVE that song. To me it completely embodies this season –

I look forward to the change of each season but my favorite season by far is autumn. The crispness of the early morning air, the warm colors of changing leaves. Something in the array of browns, reds, coppers, and golds mixed with the lingering green of summer just sings to my heart.

Oh, and the smells – cinnamon, apple, pumpkin spice, cloves, yummy!

A Walk In The Woods

I look forward to the first rainfall – you know the one that washes away the last remnants of summer? I love to walk through the woods just after that rain, when the leaves have begun to fall and crunch beneath your shoes. When the fragrance of clean air, bitter, composting leaves, and the sweet damp earth wafts around you like a warm sweater.

Surely, fall is the nature Goddess in all her glory, giving us one last burst of color before she dusts the earth with the cold twinkling stillness of winter.

Welcome back my friend.

Shall we dance in the moonlight giving thanks for your return?

Electroformed Copper Jewelry ~ Art ~ Magic ~ Nature

Originally posted June 2016

I promised you a bit of information on electroforming, and in my usual style, I am not going to get all technical ~ because that is just not fun!!! But…if you keep reading all the way to the bottom….you will get a little nugget of technical…

Electroforming ~ what can I say ~ except that I have become completely obsessed with this medium. It is the perfect way to take all of the beautiful treasures I collect from my journey’s and combine them with metal (copper) to create one of a kind, earthy, nature inspired jewelry. The process allows me to form metal where none previously existed. Imagine the possibilities!!

Crystal Wand Pendants

To me, electroforming is alchemy.  I transform into a mad scientist jewelry artist magician…hmmm…. that sounds a little crazy…but completely accurate! While the process is partly scientific, it’s not entirely predictable which is where the magic comes in. Honestly, I never know exactly how a piece will finish, so on top of being unpredictable, it is also very exciting. Like waking up on Christmas morning and running out to see what Santa left…pure magic…

Some would argue that alchemy is a silly way to explain this process but, here is Miriam Webster’s definition of Alchemy ~

Electroformed Pendants

Alchemy

Noun    al·che·my \ˈal-kə-mē\

  • 1: a medieval chemical science and speculative philosophy aiming to achieve the transmutation of the base metals into gold
  • 2 : a power or process of transforming something common into something special
  • 3 : an inexplicable or mysterious transmuting

 

Now, I don’t know about you, but doesn’t #2 seem to hit the nail on the head??? Combine that with #1 and  #3

And what do you have?  Electroforming

When I discovered the electroforming process it was serendipity and déjà vu all at the same time. You know, like when you meet a stranger and feel like you have known them for all time, all the while knowing it is the best thing EVER??  That’s how I felt when I learned what possibilities were available through electroforming. My design style has always been organic and pulls strongly from nature, so adding this to my metalsmithing just seemed like the natural thing to do.

So, what is the scientific definition of electroforming? It is the intricate process of controlling an electrically charged chemical bath, and slowly depositing thin layers of metal (copper, silver, gold) from a cathode onto a conductive surface (anode), whether it be organic or inorganic material. This process is done over a long period of time – depositing layer over layer, and generally takes from 12 – 24 hours just for the forming process. The entire process from start to finish for a piece can easily run into days!!

 

Now, that may seem like a long time, but when the reward is a finished product that looks like these beauties, I say it is well worth the time ~

MAGICKAL HEART

I absolutely adore this blogger. Please check out
hocuspocus13 ❤❤❤

hocuspocus13

WITHOUT a MAGICKAL HEART

Magick will not flow through you

You must learn to radiate the joy and love of the Universe so it can lend its strength to your cause

Stop being so up tight and relax so you can get a true sense of what you are surrounded by within the World you live in

Begin to feel what you cannot see

Connect between the physical heart and your spiritual heart

For without true heart which is the central core of ones Magickal being that radiates from within you

…your Magick will not work

As your Soul is contained within the Heart!Once your heart is in it…

Then bring into play your Will

It is your strength of determination

Your “iron will”

Is what will make Magick happen

The Will is that pure focus that empowers you and connects you with the energy that weaves about the…

Nothing Says Boho like Denim

Hello Tribe!!  You all know I’m no fashionista, but from time to time I do like to share my obsessions… and lately it is all about embroidered fashion.  I have loved embroidered jeans and tops since I was a a kid growing up in the 1970s.  I’m not one to follow trends with my fashion, I’m pretty much just a boho hippie chic and my clothing reflects that. But, I am really happy that embroidered jeans and tops are making a comeback because it makes it easier for me to find items that I love. And…it has also inspired me to try some DIY projects (more on that in a future post!)

Here are a few of my favorites I have found floating around the internet…giving credit to the folks who originally posted them and linking the photo to them as well ~  just sharing a few of my favs.

This came from a great DIY article by What I Wore you can find the article here

It has totally inspired me to create a new pair of jeans…from an old pair of course!!

Check out these ideas for jeans…

I’m totally loving these tops from Sundance ~ decisions decisions…

And of course, any great outfit needs great accessories!!  I’m talking jewelry of course!!

Here are a few great boho inspired necklaces available in the shop right now!!

What is Your Beautiful?

What do you find beautiful?
For some, beauty lies within the esthetic, in the perfect shape, or the perfect color, or the perfect pitch.
For those inspired by nature, often times ‘beautiful’ comes from a little different perspective. When you experience the raw power of nature, you are using all of your senses, not just your eyes.

My favorite thing in life is to take a walk in the woods in early fall, right after the first rain. The smell is intoxicating, the colors are vivid, the mist settling on my skin and making the whole world around me glisten, the sounds of my steps crunching in the leaves, this invigorates me.

I find beauty in the very things that sing to my soul and make my soul sing back. And that my friends allows one to find great beauty and perfection in natures imperfections.

As a jewelry artist, I try to incorporate the beauty of nature in every piece I create. One of the reasons I started working in the medium of electroformed jewelry was the very earthy and organic feel of the metal formed to stone. But I also love the fact that you can create using found objects. That’s why you will see me incorporating seashells, leaves, feathers, beach glass and a myriad of other treasures into many of my creations.

Copper itself is such an earthy element. I mean, yes, of course it comes from the earth so by it’s very nature copper is earthy. But what makes it so unique is that it is the only metal strong enough in its natural state to be used in jewelry. No need to alloy it with another metal to make it strong. Did you know that sterling silver is alloyed with copper for strength? That’s right, copper is a powerhouse metal! I think that is another great attribute of electroformed jewelry!!

I created this fluorite crystal pendant quite awhile back. To me, the very earthiness of the raw amethyst crystal cluster and copper mixed with the smooth lines of the fluorite crystal created harmony between the pairing. When she was all done, I noticed that the fluorite was not perfectly polished and smooth. There were some imperfections in her.

 


While that very much appealed to my sense of beauty, I was worried my tribe would judge her little imperfections and find her unworthy. So, I put her in a box and hid her away where it was safe.
Well, her little siren’s song has been floating out to me lately, pleading to me to let her perfectly imperfect beauty shine. How could I deny nature herself?

So, I will be listing her in the shop this weekend, hoping that you too will find perfection in the imperfection.
Love and Light tribe 💗

WALKING in my BOOTS

I am really enjoying this wonderful blog…give her a whirl ❤

hocuspocus13

ITs ALL ABOUT ME

I had to walk away oh not to make others realize how worthy I was

But for me to understand and acknowledge my own self worth

I had to learn that one keeps going long after you think you cannotIf I could not walk far and fast I think I should just explode and perish

~ CHARLES DICKINS ~So I walked to a place that gave me a reason to smile

It made me feel rich counting all the gifts I have that money just can’t buy

I thought that my life didn’t seem to be the way I wanted it to be

I was living in it the best way I knew how

There is no perfect life they keep telling me and suggested that I fill it with some perfect memories and keep smiling along my wayToday is your day your…

UNDER THE FULL MOON

Love this blogger ~

hocuspocus13

SOAK UP AS MUCH EXPERIENCE AS POSSIBLEBe smart But playful

Time for a lighter side of yourself to shine through with this Full Moon

Show your more carefree side

That keeps you laughing

Sometimes we give just enough of ourselves to keep things or people around at an arm’s length and holding back enough to keep ourselves safe

Maybe we could have just a little bit of fun building things from the ground up

Clear the deck
Let go of negative influences
Pave way for new growth

Forever it be a time of connecting with our spiritual sacred feminine selvesI want to express everything I feel

Things I have been ignoring

Suppressing from my life

Back into a joyful wild woman

Emotions are running very high during this Full Moon

It creates strong intense passion

Influencing your mood

Bringing some strong desires to the surface

Leaving you…
