Jeweled Personalities

I LOVE gemstones, you name it I love them.  I could say especially Amethyst - because today it is my favorite, I wore tons of it to work.  I love Amethyst's higher vibration and feeling of divinity and elevated spirituality BUT yesterday it was Citrine.  I worked extensively with it and love the good clean will it radiates

Tonight as I sit basking in the glow of Rose Quartz and Rhodonite feeling pure spiritual love I honestly have a strong desire to reach for my Howlite.  Howlite seems to not just bring calmness but to stimulate my creativity.  Aside from Amethyst I come back to this stone again and again.  Such jeweled personalities all these gems from the earth possess.

Learning of gemstones from my mother who collected rocks, knew the trees and reveled in the wild countryside I developed a love of earth's stunning treasures early on.  Spurred by Native American teachings that began with the pet quartz rock given me by my grandfather as a child of 5 I naturally gravitated to Scott Cunningham. when I got older.  As every beginner down the pagan path knows we all seem to start with Cunningham.  He is easy to read and obviously had a love of the earth especially its gems and herbs.  He translated and guided nicely for the beginner who was fascinated with the magical energies from nature.

Gemstones - precious and semi-precious radiate with such distinguishable energies, it is no different than the multitude of personalities we encounter with humans, dogs, horses etc... everyday.  I find some slumber until woken, some chatter like magpies, other soothe with lullabies of ancient rock and water before life began, and even other ring of epic deeds invigorating our very blood.  Back to Amethyst, each stones I see, touch, come in contact with has its own story.  even depending on where in the earth it has been harvested can give me a glimpse of its character - its own personal accent.

Such jeweled personalities all stones possess.  Some you must tease to tell their story, others need to be kept close, still others enjoy being a lookout in spacious places surveying all they see.  But like our human and animal children, these luscious children of the mineral kingdom radiate the best energies when noticed, cared for and loved.

Weaving New Dreams

Working tonight with beautiful gemstones, weaving new dreams with presents from Geb.  New Ancient Egyptian jewelry designs laid out ready for the new year.  Such lovely energies to to with, I had so many different stones it was hard to begin some where.  Grounding and balancing - with some unconditional love and reflection was a start.  Wonderful experience of meditating while creating, makes me feel whole and in sync with the universe.

Working with the black tourmaline and hematite first was refreshing and as I moved forward - grounding and centering allowed me focus with the energy I needed.  So creativity flowed and my creations came together wonderfully. Weaving awesome stones with such fantastic energy together creating powerful mediation beads, Isis was so very present as incense burned on the altar next to my workspace.  I cant wait to have these up in my Artfire studio with new pics on my website and Facebook fan page coming asap.

Ancient Egyptian - The Eye of Horus

The Eye of Horus, inspired by ancient Egyptian jewelry I have seen in museums (behind glass to my dismay).  I must say after learning to work with metal clay and some wonderful pointers from a fellow AF guild member (Kelly) I really enjoy this medium.  The sky is the limit for creations.  While being a lover of Ancient Egypt and especially Egyptian jewelry my mind reels at the possibilities for amulets, cartouches, and tiny statuary, I can see how pagan along with Wiccan spiritual symbols can so easily be created.  Not to mention any other spiritual themed design  be it Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddist.  This is only the tip of the iceberg, anything your imagination captures a hold of this metal clay can create – just like playing with clay as a kid (almost).  I am looking forward to creating Ankh rings, Lotus bracelets, tiny Egyptian Scarabs earrings and of course more pieces with the Eye of Horus  - my personal fav and current obsession, never straying far from my beloved Egyptian jewelry.

The Dreams of Isis and Google+

Google+  - seems there is a lot of buzz about Google competing with Facebook.  The Dreams of Isis has jumped on the bandwagon and opened a business page.  All links and pics will direct viewers back to my ArtFire studio - so see how it works for me.  Hoping to get fellow ArtFire members to do this too.  A  few in the ArtfireLInk group are and I am hopeful for my TexasArtfire guild as well.  I feel the more places we can post content with links back to our studios the more traffic we shall get especially in these economic times when we are all hopeful to share with the world our various beautiful creations.

 Join me and share.
