Magic Spell Labradorite and Feather Earrings


RESERVED

Back in the early spring I made a clutch with a squirrel skull and magnolias on its front, a series
of circles and ideas on the back.
It was magical.

In its description I wrote, "I want to explain all of the elements to you, but my heart tells me not to, that it would break the spell I wish to cast..."

and I feel likewise the same about these completely one-of-a-kind shoulder dusters.

They are suuuupppper powerful and I don't want to dull their edge by blabbing about the
rich and abundant intention that went into their creation.


I will so happily tell you what they are comprised of, though.
The steeliest cobaltiest blue hunk of labradorite
a feather (pressed in brass) from one of the scrubjay pups that are learning to hunt in my back yard,
learning the art of feeding themselves.


hand-hewn brass stars


A 'protect this woman' brass instruction tag for God to read no matter where you are
and what you're doing


Draping elegant lengths of sterling silver chain
fern rolled sterling backplate for the labradorite earring,
handmade sterling silver ear wire for the feather earring.

And a metric ton of

LOVE.

In the Metal Shop tonight.

I gasped. And then I remember that day at Spirit Matters, that day we sat in the bird blind, and my heart swelled twice its size.

Phenomenal girl.

I've been dwelling a lot on protection, lately. Shields are featured in my dreams, sketches, and in leather work when I'm least expecting it.
Protection indeed.
Love these.
