Just an update

After my little Hiatus on posting, I have not caught up you, the viewers of my trinkets.  Please be assured that I am still creating them, and will post a nice long post with lots of photos soon.  I'm just over a week behind, so imagine how glorious it will all be ;)

Thank you for your patience.

Trinket # 28 and # 29

Well, needless to say, it's been a very busy past few days.  But of course I have still had ideas in my head to work with, so I still march on with the challenge.  I'm still loving it of course.

So, Trinket # 28 (protection bags), is going to be used for the cleansing of a house.  I did quite a bit of research in old books and on the internet, talked to some people that have cleansed houses before (just so you know, this house is very active with more than one spirit, some are just playful but one isn't quite that nice) and this is a combination of herbs, woods (bark), stones, colors and names hand written inside, that will help with not only protection, but helping to ward off spirits that are unwanted in this resident. 

While hand sewing these little pouches of harmony, I said, a prayer as such instilling peace and comfort into every stitch.  I took my time making them, and will have the minister(s) that will also be attending this cleansing to bless them.  There is no harm in taking that which is natural (as in mother earth, mother nature, the earth, the intentions, the love, the power of unity) and making it into something amazing and powerful.

Believe it or not they smell amazing and earthy, they are small enough to carry in a pocket and they will help to protect anyone that needs them (with the correct name written into them). I actually love them, and will be making my own for strength, happiness, contentment, courage, clarity and intuition.

Trinket # 29

This next one, I've seen quite a few times.  It's something that I made for my mother (because of her love for birds and nests).  I have never attempted one before, so I sat down and just worked with it. I'm very pleased how it turned out, and I can't wait to give it to her.  So, for today's trinket (eggs in nest necklace) I used fresh water pearls, and a chain with a heart finish clasp/bar. I'm actually very pleased on how this turned out as well.

I call this one "New Beginnings".

A set of Three

Day # 25, 26 and today Day # 27th:

I wanted to make a set, so, I purposefully left them all to photograph today. I hope you enjoy them.  I will be honest, while, I get told a lot that purple is a beautiful color on me, besides red, it is my least favorite color.  However, with the properties involved with this set..I believe it will benefit myself, or anyone that were to wear it.

There are many properties typed up on the internet and in books concerning this beautiful stone.  The census would state that it helps to enhance intuition and mental connections. It's also been known to convert negative energy to feelings of love and kindness and protects against psychic attacks.

The other, fresh water pearls, coincide and compliment the Amethyst in healing properties along with opening one's mind and allowing yourself to explore your purpose.

This would be a necklace, earrings and bracelet.

Welcome to a Plethora of Trinkets!

So, since I haven't posted ALL of the trinkets I have made, guess what, it's going to be a BLOWOUT post!

Thank you for your patience, seriously! It's going to be a doozy and I'm excited to share them!

Thursday, January 20th, trinket # 20.

I made these during my lunch hour, then wore them the rest of the day.  I really enjoy how light they are, and how long they hang.  I will be honest, I created them after seeing Beth's earrings Spring Fever Earrings and I told her so.  I hope she takes it as a compliment!

So, then Friday January 21, trinket # 21, it was a quick pendant. I had found the most beautiful Tiger's eye at the Metaphysical shop, and it called to me.  It is said that Tiger's eye stones help to clear the mind of annoying and stressful thoughts. It's very simple but I can't wait to wear it.

So, Saturday, January 22 trinket # 22, I had this sweet little clear crystal quartz that also asked to be made into a pendulum pendant.  This one actually is going to a friend because it has three other stones attached, Jade (promotes balance), fresh water pearl (enables the qualities of love), Apache Tear (believed to bring good luck) and of course the clear crystal quartz (the stone of clarity).  Ending with a sliver moon charm.

So Sunday, January 23, trinket # 23 .. I made this while spending time with my mother.  She has now decided that she wants to learn how to do it.  I love that! Had fun laughing with her while doing it.  I think I'm going to have a jewelry making party one of these days, my mother, several of my friends. Just having fun and laughing and creating!! 

This necklace is probably going to my mother.  She loved it that much, plain, simple yet dainty and dressy.

So, tonight, in getting caught up on my postings, the Monday Motif is "Arsenic and Old Lace".. This one I went simple on.  A true trinket.  I know some of you will appreciate this... "Needs more cow bell"...

And there you have it.  I hope I didn't disappoint.  I wanted to go ahead and tantalize your imagination and tickle your funny bone. Comments of course are always welcomed!
