Opalite is an amazing material to work with, and to wear. It changes color as it catches different rays of light, making it a really magical piece of jewelry to own. Opal and Pink Tourmaline are the traditional birthstones for those born in October and the zodiac sign Libra. Opalite is a man made glass that has the color properties of opal and is often used in place of gemstone opal, which is quite expensive. It appears blue on a dark background, and orange on a white background. Opalite improves communication, encourages persistence, and aids our ability to verbalize our emotions.
About the Tree of Life
The tree of life is a mystical and magical tree that is well known in many cultures. It represents our connection to all things -- earth, air, water, fire. In Celtic culture, trees were the centre of all that occurred -- the absence of trees would be the absence of life. In Christian tradition, eating from the tree of life is said to grant immortality. In Norse mythology, the tree of life, or Yggdrasil, binds together all realms of existence. This ancient tree represents our connection to our ancestors and also of our individuality. The stages of a tree's growth through the year mirrors that of the cycle of life, similar to the eternal life/re-birth traditions in many religions.
Every piece that I make is lovingly and thoughtfully handcrafted in my studio. All the jewellery, decor, and altar tools I make are handcrafted -- some pieces are made by assembling charms and stones, others are made completely from scratch using wire and stones. Aside from a small selection of one of kind pieces which are available for immediate purchase, I make every order when I receive it. Some of the jewellery and decor pieces, such as wire wrapped trees, can take several hours of meticulous work to come to life.
Self care products, incense, herbal blends, tea, and other altar supplies are blended in very small batches so they arrive to you shortly after they've been made.
Jewellery, decor, and altar tools are packaged with an explanation of the symbolism of the finished piece and the components used. Self care products include ingredients lists, instructions for use, and and explanation of symbolism, where applicable.
Everything I make is I create with the intention of feeling magic, and sharing that magic with you.
