Devotional Jewelry, Event, Vending

Frederick Pagan Pride 2019!!!

This was our first year vending Frederick Pagan Pride, and it was a really good show for us! There was lots of interest in our products and we ran into a lot of friends (including Monika Healing Coyote)! The Acorn Sprout even “helped” at the table, creating toy car tableaux.

There was sooooo much prep work involved in getting this much jewelry made, but it all came together in time for the festival! We learned a couple of things, too – I think for NoVA we’ll use fewer bracelet racks and more bowls, because people seem more likely to buy the reiki bracelets if they can interact with them first. Practically everything we sell is reiki-attuned and enchanted, and it really makes a difference!

Here’s the whole family, with Aleja waving to… somebody?

Also, we now have more than two dozen deity bracelet designs, from Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian), Hellenic (Ancient Greek), Norse (Aesir and Vanir), and Gaelic (Tuatha Dé Danann) pantheons, and we have a half dozen more on the drawing board! As always, if we don’t have the deity you’re looking for, or if you want a bracelet for a specific aspect of a deity, please don’t hesitate to ask! We love doing custom work!

The Etsy Shop is still on vacation and will be until we have a chance to do inventory following NoVA Pagan Pride, but if you want something, send us an email and we’ll accommodate you as best we can! Locals can come see us in Fairfax, VA on September 28th at NoVA PPD! We’ll be restocked on all the jewelry, and Aleja will also be doing divinatory readings that day!

Other Updates

Brief Update

Hello All!

I’ve been pretty sick lately and so haven’t updated here, apologies… I’m trying to catch up on things today.  This is going to be a sort of a list-post, so bear with me, okay?

Recently Gwdihŵ and I did another big-and-intense reiki healing session on another friend, but as that one was highly personal and centered around past traumas, we decided it was best not to post about it, even under a psuedonym.  This one was done as a gift to a friend in need, so no barter this time… though I think we have a paying customer in the works, and hopefully it will only take a few paying customers before we can afford our own travel massage table, so we can have people lie down (instead of sitting in comfy chairs).

The biggest thing to report, I suppose, is that we’ve submitted an application to vend Baltimore Faerie Faire this May.  We hope to offer quick reiki treatments and some gemstone jewelry – probably some empath shields (charged lava stone beads) and the like turned into bracelets as well.  If we’re accepted, I’ll need to make a ton of inventory before then, but that should be doable!  So fingers crossed and candles lit and here’s to hoping!

The next thing is sort of an upcoming thing… I have a lot of new pictures to add to the Etsy shop, and some of the listings will be changing, and I’ll be adding a new tarot deck, the Radiant Rider-Waite.  So be on the lookout for that!  I’ll probably make a post with a few pictures here, once I’m done.

And one more teaser: I’ve started crocheting a kokeshi-style Sekhmet icon.  I’ll post pictures and talk about that more once I’ve finished one!  It’s a pretty exciting project, and I think they’ll make create altar pieces if I can do a bunch of different deities – similar to the devotional bracelets.

And speaking of devotional bracelets, the one for Bast is still available in my shop, though I should probably whip up another one as that one sold.  And there’s a Sekhmet one in the works, though I need to get my hands on some tiger’s eye beads in a better shade of brown.

That’s all for now.  Thanks for following along and check back in soon!
