Poets, Mavericks & Prophets is delighted to announce its Story Shop – its first seed beads, storytelling bracelets, now available for purchase online.
Envisioned as the blog’s crystal vaults – a source of sustenance for its manifold activities – this will be a little alchemical shop of stories, told in a variety of materials and manifestations, something which I always wanted to open, but never knew how it would arrive into being. The initial activity of the shop will be its crystal bracelet collection, starting with the first eleven pieces which are now available for purchase. I will be adding more artwork as it is created.
So, with a tiny silver gong, please meet the first seeds. They were created with inspiration, intent, and timing, but were very much involved in their own patterning while I was contemplating them. I feel they were teaching me their own relationships and moods.
These first pieces slowly came to life in the last few months of 2020, as fruits of my decades-long interest in crystals, and a lifelong interest in jewellery. They also arrived due to my ongoing saturation with words, and the virtual realm, in a period of contemplation on the importance of palpability and presence in our lives, the beauty of touch.
At the moment, I’m only working with semi-precious stones, lava, and sterling silver, making sure all the materials are quality sourced, but there might be an odd crystal glass or rosewood here and there, if the story requires. In time, there might be a bit of gold, too.
Hope you enjoy them. If not to purchase, then just to look at.
