Misi, Folksy, Etsy what finds!!

Today started in a rather hectic manner! Had both children attached to me whilst trying to get dressed and when I finally managed it the little one sneezed and covered me in yogurt!!! Not to worry, I'm used to be covered in something, the other mums at school must not have a good impression of me. Anyway, finally got Zac off to school and Joe happily pootling around in front of cbeebies so I could get to work.
Over the last few days I have gained a wealth of fabulous information from new friends that I have met on twitter and through blogs. I had no idea all of these wonderful sites were around that would list my hand made items. Now I just have to find the time to make use of them. First of all I must thank Madam Salami who I met on twitter. Your advice has been very helpful and I am very pleased to have met you. On your advice I created this blog and joined Misi where I have managed to list three items. My Misi Store One of the items is a partner for the carnelian bracelet in my last blog. ( The other two are a Kyanite healing pendant and a beautiful blue multi gemstone and Swarovski Crystal Pendant Necklace.) It was so beautiful and wasn't a special design so I decided to share it. I also managed to list two items on Folksy. My Folksy Shop. These were a Wire Worked Rose Quartz and Swarovski Crystal Necklace and a Hematite and Crystal Bracelet. I found folksy from another fascinating blog. Magic making Hands Etsy definately looks worth a go as well but I just don't have the time at the moment. I think I will see how things go with the other two, get some more listings on when I get the chance.
So, what else so far today? Well I entered a competition on Jolicious where I am keeping my fingers crossed for that gorgeous Indian Summer Bracelet!!!!

On my travels through Folksy I discovered some incredible charm bracelets and thought I would share. The seller has their own website Jezebelcharms and they are truly wonderful. Some of her necklaces are incredible, she uses old watch parts. Unfortunately they are a bit out of my price range.

Anyway, still loads to do so must get on. Have a slight family matter to contend with first though!! Food is such fun isn't it.

Just completed.

I have just completed a beautiful carnelian bracelet for one of my myspace friends. It is for his mother and I have added some beautiful Fire Opal Swarovski Crystals to add light to the piece. Carnelian is such a fascinating stone. It is full of energy and confidence and is a real spirit lifter. I have also had alot of success using it to relieve the pain of arthritis and also as a protective buffer in difficult situations. I have used orange carnelian as I prefer it to the red.

In the middle ages, Carnelian was assigned a blood-staunching and anger-calming effect. The Egyptians also used it as a protective stone for the dead. It is one of my favourites. It is so vibrant.

My current all time favourite stone however is labradorite. It is so beautiful and surprising. At first glance you may think that it is all grey. But you would be very wrong. It is totally irridescent. Blues, Greens, Oranges, yellows. It is transfixing. It is also a very active and powerful stone. Very effective for total protection of your aura. It forms a protective shield around you allowing nothing to get in or out. I often recommend labradorite for people who are very sensitive and are receiving alot of negative energy from other people. In an extreme circumstance I also provided some for a client who had been informed by a medium that they had attracted a mischeivous entity which was causing them trouble. The reaction in this case was almost immediate and the client felt extremely relieved. I find it interested noting other peoples reactions when I am wearing labradorite. I find that people who normally 'stress' me out are now feeling that stress themselves. It is very obvious that it is affecting them, sometimes they are unable to stay in my presence. Be careful though, as it is very powerful and if you wear it too much it often gives you a terrible headache. This is a sign that it must be removed completely.

Here is a labradorite bracelet that I made for the gentleman mentioned above. I believe that he is now very attached to it and that it is helping which is wonderful as he is a good friend.
The final thing that I am going to add to this blog is a video that I discovered on you tube. At first glance it is merely a large rock rotating on a platform but it is so much more. It is a wonderful piece of labradorite, watch how the colours change and at times you can see right into the stone. It is a classic opportunity for crystal gazing and letting your mind run free. What can you see, please tell me!

Friday Update

OK, now I have a headache!!!!

Yesterday I signed up for 'twitter'. I think I may be missing the point. Just when I think I may be getting the hang of it, I suddenly feel lost and confused! It doesn't appear to have any guidelines at all. I could do with a very simple 'how to twitter guide!' Does anyone know of one?
I did get a very useful tip from one of the nice ladys that I am following though. You are currently looking at it.....
I didn't even know that Blogspot existed, but here we are. Yet another thing to keep me tied to my laptop instead of messing about with my healing stones and creating jewellery. Excuse my blogs for being a bit bland, I am a newbie after all. I will try my best to make them more interesting in the future.

Oh yes, and twitter appears to have totally confused my laptop. My website program won't launch and internet explorer keeps getting stuck. Only one thing for it I think..
Step away from the laptop!!!

Until next time. Going to put a large amethyst on my forehead.
Do you hate wearing wrist watches? I do!

Last year I decided to do something about it. I made myself a pendant watch, totally non restricting unlike its wristy cousin.I created it using Hematite, Moonstone, Leopardskin Jasper and Swarovski Crystal. It was actually made twice as the first time I put the face in the normal way and found that I should have put it upside down to be able to read it more easily but this was soon rectified.Here is a picture of the one I made for myself.

I loved it, it was 26 inches long to the top of the watch face and looked wonderful as well as being useful. I had loads of comments on it from other people. Soon after I made one for my mum. This time I used stones with appropriate properties to help her. This one was created using Clear Quartz, Smoky Quartz, Moonstone, Obsidian Snowflake, Mookaite and Swarovski Crystal.

Another example is one I made for a customer as a Christmas present. This one was also a healing pendant watch. It holds, Smoky Quartz, Red Carnelian, Flourite, Green and Black Tourmaline, Bloodstone and Swarovski Crystal.

These watches have become one of my favourite creations, each one is so different. Some are extra long, some are vibrantly colourful. I love to see the reactions of the people that I make them for.
If you are interested in having one created for yourself you can contact me at:
Or browse through my website.
