Shop

Poets, Mavericks & Prophets presents my newly minted PMaPsArt Studio Story Shop, the little alchemical shop of stories I always wanted to open. Told in a variety of materials and manifestations, made in alignment with the celestial weather, it was born out of my decades-long interest in gemstone lore, a lifetime of astrological study, a love of jewellery, and sparked by the twelve storytelling bracelets – the first seeds that I made on the fly last year. Hope it brings you as much joy as creating artworks eternally brings to me.

Delighted to announce The Philosophy Of Light is available for purchase, PMaPsArt Studio Story Shop‘s first designer jewellery collection. Stay tuned for more storytelling artwork and new gem collections arriving in Autumn 2021.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIGHT is an exploration of the character of our crystal kin and their relationship with the nature of light – its presence and its absence, the way it travels within crystal bodies, how it reflects and shifts according to perspective, what it conveys to the observer – the message its stellar code embeds in the crystal’s sphere. It is also my humble offering to the angelic realms.

DANCING STAR is its crown piece, inspired by my favourite philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, and the quote from his Thus Spoke Zarathustra (1883–1885) – “one must still have chaos in oneself to give birth to a dancing star.” 

All the artwork in THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIGHT will be aligned with a specific Chaldean planetary day and hour, and this will be observed for every piece made in the collection. Only the original design itself is aligned to its initial storytelling Moon placement, while further artwork will sync with its own – honouring Luna’s fluid nature.

My intention is not to create talismanic materia according to astrological elections – as this is high art onto itself, rather to balance the root storylines of the stones by acknowledging their myths, clear personal space for the wearer cleansing the stones of various debris, and synchronise the astrological clock with the alchemical lore of the gems – while making sure the host planetary combination is well placed, inhabiting only the realms of the Benifics.

Bracelets will arrive in a pouch, with their crystal lore and storyline in print. If it is a gift, I offer services of poetic dedication.

I am shipping via air mail from Serbia, so all internationally purchased pieces are made through PayPal and will have a fixed €6 postage fee automatically added to the total price of purchase. This is in line with the standard price for all registered small packets of up to 100g weight in international airmail PO Serbia letterpost services.

For purchases in Serbia, delivery and payment is made through a courier service. To order, please contact me via email.

Please allow for approximately two weeks for the arrival of your purchase after payment.  If there are any problems, a missing or damaged piece, there will be a PayPal refund.

The pieces all have different sizes due to the patterns of beading. It is possible to make them custom fit, too – please send me an email to discuss the options.

Any feedback on the piece would be lovely, and very much appreciated.

Flourite, in crystal lore, is the stone of strength and clarity, protective in adverse environments, absorbing debris. According to Judy Hall it dissolves illusions, organising and stabilising our energy, facilitating information processing, with myriad medicinal uses, mostly related to muscular and skeletal systems. It’s a bountiful heart chakra stone, but it cleanses and balances them all, like the great muscle, itself.

More Info & Crystal Care

I admire all crystals, gems and stones, and honour them as keepers of stories. They are both archetypal and personal, enveloping all there is embodied on this plane, being its original inhabitants. They are the perfect storytellers, trusted to weave a tale in its clear, unencumbered form. At the moment, I’m only designing jewellery, working with semi-precious stones, making sure all the materials are quality sourced. I will be adding other natural materials in upcoming collections, as well as other kinds of artwork in the Story Shop, too.

Please remember to cleanse your stones every so often. They pick up environmental debris, like we do. Everyone has their own way. For me, I rinse them in cold water (unless they are lightly coloured), and leave them underneath my window for a lunar light bath on a full Moon day. A wash and a nap, like rest of us. Smudging with sage is also good, especially with the stones that should not be washed due to loss of colouring. For now – only avoid water with red corals in the new collection.

Disclaimer – The storytelling bracelets are created for your inspiration, as assistance in tuning into the mysteries of our crystal kin. Their lore is important to understand symbolically and use alchemically, as co-creators – their archetypal patterning brings about a greater awareness of life, of what needs transforming, balancing and healing. Their colours, origins and textures bring us joy, which in itself is a powerful life potion – their magic comes from their character, as does ours. Please keep in mind that although they are in many ways medicinal and magical, they are not medicine, as this they are not intended to be.
