Cleaning up my space

15 August 2012

When I move back east from Vancouver BC, my sister open a small artisan boutique.
She needed some jewelry made and I bought supply like crazy. After a few months, I saw that the other’s artisans were making similar pieces. So, I change a bit my style to big and funky ….

When she sold the boutique due to illness, I saw similar thing in art show, so I started to play more with wire and copper pieces. I just found my passion ….love working with copper and hammering the metal and playing with the torch.

So, before I am getting my feet wet and buy more copper sheets and tools, I am cleaning my stash of small beads and some findings, I have triple of  this and that  LOL……

I am selling the findings in one bundle and the beads in another bundle or the 2 bundles together …..The price is way down of what I paid for …. I just want to get rid of it to peoples who will appreciate all that stuff at a bargain price.
 $120.00 of beads ( let go for 30.00 )

If you want to make a better offer, let me know, I won’t bite. :O)

Chocolat and Turquoise Collection

A Collection from the guild Checked In Today 

10 June 2012

We are a mother (Theresa) and daughter (Liz) team of artists and crafters. We create arts and crafts for the spirit. Our goal is to match each creation with the individual for whom it was designed. Spirit works in mysterious ways sometimes to bring about those matches.

I am Theresa, the "mom" half of this team. I am also know as Sóbhrag among my shamanic community. My first venture into crafts was as a teenager, when I discovered I could augment my wardrobe by making my own clothes. I considered sewing a practical skill, not a talent or an art. You see, I was not artistic or creative. At least, that's what I grew up believing.

Jewelry making is an out-growth of my life-long love and fascination with rocks. When I started on the shamanic path, I realized that stones had always been speaking to me; but I had not learned how to listen. I had made jewelry, at times, over the years to accessorize special outfits for myself and the kids. I had the skills; and now I had the reason. It became my passion to create things that were both aesthetically pleasing and spiritually meaningful.
