On Etsy!

Thanks to the wonderful Claire I am now on Etsy.
She's set up a shop for me and will be selling my bracelets and necklaces on Etsy and some on Asos Market place :-). So now it is available for everyone!
100% handmade by me, and as you know by now I only make one of each so it is also 100% unique.

So if you know anyone's birthday coming up and are at loss for buying presents, check out the byhildi shop on Etsy. 

Pictured above is "Purple Reign" and "Goldie Dawn".

Where the fuck am I....

So my latest project is finished.
It is a necklace made with pink jade, quartz crystals, cultivated pearls and glass pearls.

 Taking inspiration from what really was another lifetime ago, (teenage summer holidays without parents and with girlfriends in Greece, Cyprus, a receipt for disaster but I guess we've all been there at one stage or another).....

Hoarding and the art of zen

 Not two things that will necessary go together.
Over the years I've made necklaces that I just can't seem to part with, however it is quite a significant number by now.
 In our bedroom in London they are everywhere, hanging from closet doors, in window ledges, in drawers, in pockets...I've tried to make it a bit more organised by putting them in little bowls:
 where they are collecting dust...

It's beginning to look a little like springtime....

Agate's foster love, truthfulness, courage, bravery, strength, abundance, wealth, good luck, longevity, acceptance, protection, balance, harmony, generosity, security, persuasiveness, agreeability, congeniality, compability, creativity, acquiring wealth.

 Agate's are considered Power Stones.
They are very grounding, solid and stable. 
All agate's have excellent protective and healing energy and stimulate analytical capabilities and precision.
Apart from all that, I think the green Agate is a wonderful and lush colours and it reminds me of spring.
