These days have been wild, crafty days. I knotted a chakra necklace for Rainbowmom, one of the Earthpath Artisans on Etsy. She’s the first to take advantage of my offer to resize/customize designs. It really surprises me how many customers order without asking questions or even taking the time to say hello. In my mind crafting is about connections. I love knowing where a design is traveling. I love knowing that its future owner is mindfully interested in receiving the perfect item.
As both a maker and buyer of handmade crafts, I hope that one day that desire for personal connections will save our culture from Wal-Mart. It also inspired me to seek out other artists to feature on this blog. Next week I will be sharing an interview with the woman who created the goddess pendants featured in my ritual photographs.
