Spirit Animal Necklace
Kit cost $100
Think of this workshop as a ceremony, with a beginning, middle, and end.
We will begin by cleansing with sage, calling in the directions, singing in the sun, and a journey to find our spirit animal. This process allows for us to be grounded, for our busy minds to take a back seat, and allow the creative to flow through us.
The middle will be filled with creating a one of a kind Spirit Animal Necklace. Will you be the one to choose the animal or will it be the animal that chooses you? Heidi will have a large selection of hand painted animals, birds, floral cabochons to pick from, know two are alike. You will choose the color suede you want for you twisted tassel, and bail. You will also be able to pick the natural stones you want to incorporate, and which color tila bead you wish to use.
Along with learning bead embroidery techniques, you will learn to make a webbed bail around your animal cabochon.
For the ending of our ceremony, you will have a beautiful necklace to honor and wear for a lifetime, and generations to come. We will end with you cleansing your piece with sage, perhaps a song or two. Do you have an intention you wish to blow into your piece?
No one is required to partake in the spiritual work, but I do encourage it, as it will allow for your creation experience to be more power filled.
If you have a certain animal you wish to work with, please email Heidi at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will do her best to accommodate, please let her know by Jan 1 2019.
Hey Yana, Hey Yana, Hey Yana, Ho.
Jayasharee Paramesh – Lotus Necklace
Lotus flowers exude beauty and grace. In Buddhist and Hindu philosophy, lotus is considered a sacred flower. Lotus symbolizes new beginnings and infinite potential. Because the lotus rises from unclean water at sunrise to blossom as a pure, uncontaminated flower, it is a symbol of purity and resurrection. The bud of the lotus symbolizes potential, specifically of a spiritual nature.
Lotus Necklace celebrates beauty, strength and grace of the lotus blossom. The large pendant is inspired by the lotus blossom, stitched with sparkling crystals, pearls and seed beads. A bezelled crystal with embellished teardrop bead dangles below. The rope is inspired by the lotus vine and it is finished with a small lotus bud at each end. The necklace ropes are finished with an embellished tassel and sliding strap which makes the necklace length adjustable.
Various colors of lotus blossom are associated with specific meaning. More colors coming soon!
