Crafts on the Coast

Our last show of the season is rapidly approaching! I will be removing many of my ceramic pendants from my Good Dirt Jewelry Etsy shop to take to the Crafts on the Coast Annual Harvest and Holidays Art and Craft Fair in Yachats, Oregon. This is a wonderful venue for a show and there is always a great variety of artists, not to mention the location :) If you have "bookmarked" any pendants as possible holiday gifts, you may want to go take a second look before they are gone. I'm thinking positive here! Everyone is going to be in the holiday shopping mood the first weekend in November, and I'm going to sell every pendant I take :)

I've also just finished some new Runic and starfish pendants, so if you are planning on being in Yachats, Oregon the first weekend in November, stop in and say "Hi!".

A Little Cross Promotion!

Many of you that enjoy our Ogham jewelry have told us that you are involved in the SCA, so I thought I would do a little cross promotion for some of our newest items in our Grizzly Mountain Arts Etsy shop :)

Dave has just completed 8 new fossil ivory nalbinding needles. He made these ooak medieval needles from a variety of materials including deer antler and fossil walrus and mammoth ivory. These can be found in the Fiber Art Tool section of our GMA Etsy shop. The gorgeous blue fossil mammoth ivory nalbinding needle in the photo is currently up for auction on Ebay.

New Old Irish Blessing Stone Pendants

Two new Old Irish Blessing Stone Pendants were added to my Good Dirt Jewelry shop today!

These Blessing Stones are patterned after the Buckquoy spindle whorl, which was excavated in Buckquoy, Birsay, Orkney, Scotland in 1970. The old Irish Ogham inscription is believed to date back to the 8th century. Historians believe it was a standard Old Irish ogham benedictory message, Benddact anim L. meaning "a blessing on the soul of L.". The stone from which the whorl was made, and on which the inscription was written, is native to Orkney.
