Spiraling Elements wrapped crystal, new body painting web section and art fairs

Hello there,
I cant believe its Monday already.

Check out the new body painting section on my official art website:
Body painting section of my website
Danny was kind enough to flesh out and add in this much needed section to my website. I really love how the black and white +the line work in the photos compliment the design of the page. check it out here and flick on the icons :)

And check out the new wire wrapping job on my quarts crystal:

close Up:

I have had this crystal for years. But awhile ago the old copper wrapping had broken off and i had almost lost my crystal. Since then it sat upon my lil home alter waiting for someone to re wrap her. I'm horrible at wire wrapping so when my dear etsy friend Spiraling Elements offered to do it for a trade i was ecstatic. I am in love with the added fluorite. which is perhaps the perfect stone to compliment my crystal( how did she know!?) because its been known to strengthen the healing and spiritual properties of other stones its paired with, it also helps to ground energy, aids in channeling work and inter dimensional communications!
I feel so much more balance now that i am wearing my crystal again.

In other news, I actually bought a calendar over the weekend because it seems the amount of dates i have to remember are stacking up!
This year we are going to be trying a bunch of new art fairs.
Coming up super quick we are participating in the SE Portland area Art walk on March 5th and 6th. We will have our art set up in the Land Mark Ford building along with 30+ artists. "Over 180 artists, many in 'native environments' will be showing their works and meeting art lovers over the first weekend of March. What a wonderful way to spend a day...wandering around Southeast Portland, experiencing sculpture, painting, jewelry, pottery, photography, encaustic, print-making, textile...almost every conceivable medium for expression. The 2010 event grossed over $80,000 for artists!"- SEAAW
Check out the art walk map here.
We also applied for this year's CraftyWonderland - a huge art and craft show done annually in the convention center. We wont hear back until march wether or not we made the cut so keep your fingers crossed. We also intend on doing a bunch of the art fairs during the summer.
And we totally scored this weekend! An art vending friend is moving to NY so she gave us ALL of her art vending equipment including a canopy( ours was on its last two legs), a bunch of grid wall for displaying art, tables and more. Amazing!!! We are all set. Bring on the art walks!
Is it spring yet? its getting lighter earlier!
How was your weekend?
Have any important art fairs you are awaiting?

Much love and light,

  1. I'm glad you love the crystal wrapping. It got fluorite because that is what I wanted. It looks great on you. The steel is strong so it shouldn't break again.

    Thanks for sharing the link to my sites.

  2. I meant to say it is what the crystal wanted not what I wanted lol.

  3. The crystal certainly looks at home amongst you gorgeous dreds :-)

  4. Delisa - I’m so pleased with it, I’m beyond words. I still have yet to consecrate it and reprogram it. I hope to do that this weekend if the weather somehow behaves enough to let me drive out to the Columbia river gorge and hike up to triple falls! I found a fae tree there in a fresh water stream that will be the perfect cleansing site.

    Aaron, thanks for your kindess! Glad you stopped by the blog. always appreciated.

  5. The web site addition looks wonderful and the crystal does too! What a great score on the fair equipment too; its so important to feel prepared! I am doing some school and some art soo i won't be doing fairs probably this year. I am helping my mom with the clay studio we share so I can make more clay art soon. Things are looking up!

  6. I'm so excited that your crystal is wearable again. I've been looking for the perfect one, since I haven't had one in years (where have they gone? The faeries must have them)

    It's so exciting that you have to invest in a calendar for your awesome busy-ness! Looks like the new year is gonna be awesome for you.

    My little island is covered in snow right now so me and my kids are happy, happy people.
    Lots of Love,

  7. Chelsea,

    I saw your new listing of self published book on Etsy.

    It's amazing and gorgeous, thank you, as a fellow artist, for the inspirations.

    With warmth-
