unique animal ritual jewelry - open for commission



I grew up surrounded by people who made things with their hands. My family also greatly loves and values nature and outdoor life. In particular, my grandfather carved decoys for a living. My upbringing was full of wildlife, and colour, and beautiful handcrafts.

My grandfather also cast his own pewter. Some of my favorite memories of childhood are of his little smelter in the basement, and running my hands through the steel polishing beads in his tumbling machine. He made pewter miniatures of birds and other things, as well as pieces for jewelry.

Although he is long since retired and his workshop gone, I am lucky enough to own what remains of his pewter. They are unique pieces, the very last of them, and they are far too much for me to hoard or use for myself in this lifetime. So I want to share them with people who will appreciate their beauty, the love of nature that inspired them, and the sentiment I attach to them.

If you are interested, further information about these commissions is available here:

It's 40° Celcius. 40. 104° Fahrenheit.

Yes, yes - it's Solstice. I get it.

If you want me I'll be somewhere in the house trying not to melt.

growing.

Well, the early heat in the spring screwed some of our tree crops here, but I have actual flowers on my nasturtiums, in early June. The last three years I planted them on time and they only bloomed in early October - lack of water.

Simple little things, but immensely cheering. I hope they'll fill out some and I can eat a few later on.

Yesterday was an awful day inside my head. But a small thing:

Yesterday my cats managed to corral a mouse they'd been hunting into the tiny space between my bookshelf and my water cooler. It couldn't go anywhere else but plastered itself, face down, against the wall while they hovered. It looked and acted like it was in shock, shivering and glazed.

I managed to get the mouse out of that space, pulled it gently forward with the loop handle of my flyswatter and into a small cardboard box. I let it go outside, someplace sheltered from the spitting rain.

When I opened the box on a tuft of grass, the mouse sort of tumbled out and blinked for a moment. It looked up at me, as if to say 'Really?', then toddled off underneath the decking.

My cats still haven't forgiven me, but that's ok.

Well, that was fun. There and back again. I have a few tales and some photos to share, but for the most part I feel very badly out of step with time. To boot I have caught some kind of illness that is making me dizzy.

so i'll update...eventually. Story of my life, really.

Time for Change

I've moved.

As much as I have enjoyed Livejournal over the nearly 10 years I have blogged there, this latest round of change ending in the new comments page have been the tipping point.

It's ugly, it's slow, it bogs the whole site down, and it was completely unnecessary. They got rid of comment subject lines, the preview function, the spellchecker...and the whole design was only tested on the Russian side. Mind you, the Russians didn't like it much either, but the designer pretty much stated that since he liked it, he didn't care if anyone else did.

It's been a long time since I paid for my LJ. But I don't want to support that level of indifference to your users, even for free. And it's getting pretty sparse population-wise. Only a handful of my LJ friends are still active there.

So here I am, [personal profile] witchscauldron at Dreamwidth. It isn't perfect, but it's pretty much the way I prefer my blogging platform - functional and simple. From here on out, I'm planning to write here, and cross-post my entries to Livejournal. So if you're already a DW user, let me know so I can start building my circle. And if you're an LJ user, no worries - you'll still see my posts.
