Old Hag
Inspired by Old Hag by veprikov
Another day gone. There were only three customers to stop by her shop today.  First was a flustered middle-aged woman, plump, with frazzled hair and too much makeup, asking frantically for another wrinkle removing potion, after insisting that the previous one she had gotten from a new young witch down on Porter's Street hadn't worked.
She liked that girl. Such promise and energy for one so young. Yes, that one deserved a bright future.
The next was a young man, wearing a disheveled sweater hanging off of one shoulder, wrinkled pants and tennis shoes. He insisted on a love potion, that she (a girl he mentioned but had not named) was clearly meant to be with him, she just didn't know it, and needed a little push.
I bet she's a nice girl, poor thing.
When she refused to make him the potion he starting shouting and waving his arms angrily, nearly knocking over poor Vervain, and breaking several of her poti

Artists for Charity Challenge
I'm trying to band together artists willing to make art and donate profits to important causes, so I'm posting around the internet to see who else is willing.
I know that there are some fellow artists on here that are less than happy with the outcome of the election, like myself. Well I have an idea to put our frustrations to good use.
I’ve decided to create a special section in my Etsy shop named “Charity” stocked with items that I’ve made with the intention of giving 80% of the profits to charity. (For now I’m converting my best selling and newest items until I can make items specifically for that section.)
I challenge other artists to do the same. I say we band together, make art, and donate money to important causes like Planned Parenthood, Black Lives Matter, Pride Foundation, Standing Rock etc.
I've already contacted the Planned Parenthood Donations Center. They said thank you, and that it is perfectly fine to raise money and say that we are donating

Mother of Pearl Moon Pendant
Had these lovely carved mother of pearl moons and finally decided to tackle one. Wrapped in brass and fine silver over copper wire. I wanted a kind of ray looking weave. I'd love to try proper rays with sunstone someday :)  2 1/4" by 1 3/4"

on etsy:
Tourmaline Tree of Life
The gentleman I got most of my stone chips from retired and I'm torn between wanting to use all the different ones I bought last time I saw them and hording them like a dragon.

Still making lots of trees, hoping to teach a class again this semester, also trying to make the trees a bit useful. So proceeds from some are going to different charities. So the price of this piece minus shipping and etsy fees will be donated to Doctors Without Borders/Medecins sans Fronteirs.

on etsy:
Malachite Heart Wrap
Well, I felt obliged to do a heart for valentine's day last month but didn't really have any red or pink ones... So a much less floofy heart, neat patterned malachite in antique coated copper. (Apparently hearts know I don't really care for them, this was a surprisingly hard shape to wrap for me.)

on etsy:
Yggdrasil - Labradorite Tree of Life Necklace
*The price of this piece minus shipping and etsy fees will be donated to the Sierra Club: Explore, Enjoy, and Protect the Planet*

Another of my newest batch of fundraiser trees

Labradorite always adds a bit of magic to things. I've been reading the new Norse Mythology book and the two-tone tree against the color moving in the stone made me think of Yggdrasil, the World Tree that connects the nine worlds from the poetic and prose eddas while I was working on it.

On etsy:
Rainbow Tree of Life Necklace
Part of a batch of trees I've made that I'll be selling with proceeds going to assorted charities. Sort of like what I used to do on here before *tumbleweeds blow by*

*The price of this piece minus shipping and etsy fees will be donated to Lambda Legal, a national organization committed to achieving full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and everybody with HIV through impact litigation, education and public policy work.*

L-R the stones included (ones associated with birthstones include their 'month' in parentheses) are: garnet (January), carnelian, sunstone, citrine (November), peridot (August), malachite, lapis, iolite, and amethyst (February).

On etsy:

Where to find the other donation trees:…


United States
Shell of choice: nautilus (or ammonite)
Wallpaper of choice: regency stripes or a nice floral. something to match my furniture and drapes...
Skin of choice: hmm. clear would be nice for once...
Favourite cartoon character: scrat the saber-tooth squirrel. or charlie brown.
Personal Quote: god save me from my friends, i can protect myself from my enemies. anatole france.

Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 2, 2014, 2:15 PM
Most of my (at this point not so)recent submissions to groups expired, I didn't close out the notifications so I could ask if the pieces weren't considered good enough or wrong folder or what, since they weren't rejected. Just ignored. But dA seems to have taken it on itself to delete those notifications. Is there a way to look up what groups a piece was submitted to but didn't get in so I can drop them a line to ask?

magpie-poet Featured By Owner May 1, 2016
Sorry, just got this. I do in theory, it depends on if I feel I can execute what you want and if I can get my hands on the right gems :)
