Custom Pendant - Feldspar and Lapis

Friend of mine ordered a custom pendant and asked for a specific meaning. They wanted something that would allow the wearer to let go of the past and move forward.

I chose feldspar and copper.
Feldspar - assists in detaching from the old. It also provides support in issues of self awareness and self love.

Lapis - allows relief from what has been pressed into the mind, providing objectivity, clarity and endurance during release of emotional baggage.

The copper spiral at the top allows for the emotions to spiral into the feldspar and be moved out through the lapis.

I love this combination, I may have to make one for myself!

I had a little extra time this morning and made some fun little hair decorations.
They are not meant to hold the hair back, but more to just be a decoration at a base of a pony tail, or tucked in around an 'up do'

I am going to have to find some bobby pins that are not painted. All of the paint chipped off while I was working on them, and they are, as my daughter would say - 'Jenk'. So I'll keep this prototype for myself, and make better ones to sell.

Have a great day kids!!


  1. Wow, love those hair pins! They'll be perfect accents to an up-do. Maybe use two to three in a cluster right? I'm not sure where you can get unpainted bobby pins, pretty much all I've seen are coated, good luck!
    As for the necklace, the copper spiral at the top looks wonderful :) Thanks!

  2. I love the pendant Tish as I'm sure your friend will. So much thought went into it and I love how you explain the different meanings of gem stones. Bobby pins are a cute idea too.

  3. Hi,
