Love Collection in at Sacred Paths Center, St. Paul, MN

Photo above is: Love Sweet as Candy - Candy Jade carved hearts, Rose Quartz carved hearts and rounds, Cherry Quartz, prehnite, blue opal, green fluorite, gold plated heart clasp on necklace, Sterling ear wires on earrings, Sterling clasp on bracelet. This set is now in the shop at Sacred Paths Center in St. Paul. This design was fun to make - the colors are fun and soothing at the same time. Like smooth, fruity sherbet, or a pastel sunset across a calm lake.

Love Jewelry

I love jewelry - that's why I make it! It's the opportunity to embellish yourself, add sparkle and interest to life. And by doing so, you share the sparkle with everyone who comes in contact with you. Everyone can use a little sparkle for fun, and with stones that are meaningful, the power of your sparkle increases. That's my theory for now.

So, with Valentine's day coming up, I made some Love Jewelry, jewelry I love, to express love and spread the love. Rose Quartz is one of my faves, so there's lots of that, for friendly love, protection and understanding. Also Carnelian for passion, Smoky quartz for the heart that needs protecting, and Garnet for commitment: to yourself, to your purpose, to the others in your life. And a person can't forget Tourmaline, lately my favorite stone, for inspiration, balancing, encouraging self-confidence, and transforming negativity to positivity.

Sacred Paths Center will be carrying some of the Love Jewelry by LilYkaT, and some will be available on Etsy. These are one-of-a-kind designs so will never be duplicated. I can make similar designs, but each piece is unique! And my supply of each type of stone is limited - although the husband thinks my two-hundred pounds of beads are closer to unlimited! LOL!

New Jewelry and spoons at Sacred Paths Center!

Some new jewelry designs and Pyrography Spoon designs are now in at Sacred Paths Center in St. Paul.

I recently bought some very nice candles there. I wanted more... but started with two - the blue has a very nice soft scent. I believe it was "hope." In this economy, we all need that! I also bought the "money" one. Usually, I prefer abundance, wealth or propserity... but maybe I'm becoming more honest with myself. I need money! LOL!

They have some awesome stones and new multimedia artwork in festive colors. Love it!!! If you can visit, please do - they have some new staff there, and are working very hard to make Sacred Paths the meeting center for alternative paths that this city really needs. It is an open, loving space with great new and used items - which really appeals to the recycler in me. I'm not gonna tell you about the item that I have my eye on... cuz I don't want anyone to buy it.

Other recent developments... my washer went on the fritz. El hubbo tried to fix it, and it worked for a week. Then blew a fuse. When we replaced the fuse & restarted it, it got that funny burning electronics smell. So.... Shopping on all the appliance sites. I think I found one. Will have to drive up to Rogers to get it... but... should only cost me a little time & some beer with the neighbor - totally not a hardship!
