I will be bringing along a stash of found treasures but please feel free to bring an orphaned earring, a broken ring, or anything else you may be drawn to give a magical new purpose and life to! 




*a divine Clay and Crystal Goddess Pendant

this is an extremely popular technique which I first saw in a workshop in the USA in 2001.  I will be working with you using various moulds but will also give you lots of direction if you would like to extend and hand scult the face yourself. We will also look at other designs other than faces to set crystals and other objects in clay. 

*a personal Meditation Pagan Prayer Beaded Talisman
(my own design)
Gypsy2  Gypsy5

i LOVE Meditation beads. Some people call the Prayer Beads, Blessing Beads and so on. Basically it is a string of Beads (preferably natural crystals) strung in number and order to use as Talisman and Focus during Meditation, Spelcasting, Prayer and so on. The 'problem' I used to have is that due to the resukting size, they often are too short for a necklace and too long for a braclet. 
This design I have developed is completely convertable. Easily unhooks to join together as a circle for your Spiritual purpose and then rehooks to wear.

*your own Empowered & Dedicated Wand

Your own wand! Made by you using any combination of the many many embellishment techniques I will be sharing with you. 
This photo shows just two!! We will be working with various textile, metal working, carving, painting and jewllery making techiques and your final design will be something that you want, you love and sings to your heart. 

* new ideas, skills, friendships & magic!

my Workshops are BRIMMING with tips, tricks, techniques, some you may of experience, some you may of wondered about, some long forgotten favourites! The important thing is that this is a day for YOU! Meeting like-minded new friends, developing your Creative Heart in a beautiful, friendly, happy environment. I have FUN in my Workshops, we all do  and I dont care if you cant draw a straight line, I've taught 100s of people, all ages, all skill levels and never once had a 'failure'. I promise: You will have fun and you will find you CAN do it. If you are 'experienced' then join us for a day of sharing, creating and making magic. :)
