Remember these in the Ko-fi shop? They were quite a favourite and are now back online in the new boutique store. Have a browse below - they are truly magickal in my humble opinion.
Note that today is the last day to take advantage of the Mother's Day offer at the bottom of this post - after today I can't guarantee your order will reach you on time.
All of my jewellery is unisex. That's how I want to start this article. However, there are going to be obvious exceptions: most men won't fit into a 14" choker, many women don't like wearing black stones or heavy antique silvers, and many men probably wouldn't consider a rose-gold coloured piece of jewellery for themselves. Personally, I don't consider any of this anything to do with gender - it's a case of personal preference based on natural likes / dislikes, and also social nurturing. So, I maintain that all my jewellery is unisex - just buy what you like.
I will add that one of the reasons I make many pendants without cords or chains is that it is the cord that creates the style. Take this latest piece below: a Lemurian Seed Quartz with lovely clarity.
I'm currently selling it with the option of a thick black leather cord, which could make it look rather intense, heavy, and masculine. However, swap it for a slimmer cream cotton cord, and the look and feel changes quite a lot. You can do this for any pendant, even a dainty little Blue Topaz.
This is one of the reasons for my Bespoke Cording Service - you can get the look you want more easily.
As my range grows and more items get added over the next few months, I'll be creating a lot more pieces with antique silver, antique brass and copper, and varying shades of metal. I would wear everything I create, and I one hundred percent mean that. (Have you any idea how many creations I've considered not selling and keeping all to myself? Haha! Of course, then there'd be no point in the shop.) I create what I create because I love both the act of creation and the creation itself. This was no different when writing books - I lived those characters; I live these crystals and stones.
Experiment with cords and chains; experiment with your look - what you like, what you don't... Do you have garden twine? You can make a pretty rustic and awesome-looking necklace cord with that. Thread some larger beads onto it. Try it. It's not as soft as specially prepared cords, but still looks great.

Lastly, a brand new collection (brand new stone) goes live for my supporters on Ko-fi on 9th March, then goes live in the main shop on 10th March. It'll be announced in my newsletter, too - straight to your inbox.
We can now offer you a Bespoke Cording Service when you order any of our pendants, at the point of purchase. Full details.
Mother's Day for me this year feels fortuitous and ancestral, with a coming to fruition of inheritance and much more than that. Some kind of coming into my own as a mother maybe. There is a feel in the air of protecting and nurturing our children - standing up for them, looking out for them, and helping them grow into the strong heart-warriors they should be. As spring beckons, there is a call to consider what kind of future we want. Is this year what we thought it would be? Can we envision a spring ten or twenty years from now? With our children - now adults - shaping the world for all? Are we doing everything we can to ensure they can reach that pivotal place? Are we feeding them the right ideals and values? The food that will nurture their minds and hearts in an open, strong, and loving way? And are we making our ancestors - who fought for our future - proud?
I'm thrilled to say that as well as the four already beautiful Larimar Pendants left in the shop, I have been working around the clock to bring you two brand new pendants, and three unique, rustic necklaces.
Larimar Leaf Drop Pendant
Beautiful, elegantly casual, and perfect for spring.
Larimar Copper & Leather Necklace with Toggle Clasp
Simple, and subtly eye-catching.
Larimar and Lava Choker
A stunning coalescence of blue, black, and cream have created a one-of-a-kind choker necklace, carrying the energies of Gaia's gentleness and wrath in equal measure - nature in all her glory.
Have a wonderful Mother's Day and Spring Equinox, everyone! Keep your eye on the store for further additions throughout the week. If you subscribe to our Newsletter, you'll receive all the latest products in your inbox, as well as 10% off your first order.

The moon was full in Virgo last night, and the Andean Opal called to me - perhaps since I spent yesterday morning immersed within the history of Andean and ancient Inka shamanic culture.
The full moon always shines directly into my work room's window - so, after smudging them with Sweetgrass, the newly wired Andean Opal pendants went onto the crystal grid to catch the rays of Virgo silver.
Andean Opal lends itself to working with the heart chakra, and any old feelings that need releasing, either personally, or down the family ancestral line. It is a stone that connects well to “earth energy” and Gaia, and can be used to access lost civilisations and ancient mysteries. Its link to lost civilisations also aligns with the ocean and all the secrets lost to the ocean amidst the passing of time. Those doing healing work – particularly shamanic healing work – may find this stone very beneficial. It can also help one to journey, meditate, and access the third eye.
Add the Virgo full moon, and you have a stone carrying the additional energy of 'service to others', and where Andean Opal is concerned, service to the land, and to the ancestral lineage.
You can purchase these two pendants below.
It's been a busy week for me, and mostly - since the Shungite Collection released - I've had a week of holistic health consultations, which I simply love to do as much as my jewellery. But, I have to say, come Thursday night, I was longing for Friday, feeling a little tired and a little blue. When I feel "a bit blue", I fire up beautiful, nurturing Sweetgrass. Always woven into a plait, it carries the spirit of maiden, mother, crone - wise women across a lineage. It's a very supportive and warming herb to burn; always uplifting for me, and I instantly connect to my ancestral line and guides the minute its sweet smoke hits my senses.
So, the past two days, Sweetgrass is what I've used to cleanse my sacred space before wiring stones or threading any beads.
And speaking of blue, did you catch my latest additions to the shop? Taking a small break from the pendants (more will be introduced next week), I've been enjoying creating fixed-length necklaces, and yes - oddly - the theme has been rather blue.
Beach / Boho Choker - £8.95
Amazonite on cotton cord - £6.95

As mentioned before, my jewellery look has always been inspired by Beach & Surf jewellery, and the Beach & Surf section has now been added to the store with two Om necklaces for show and more to come.
To combine crystal wiring with the beach look would be wonderful, so look out for pieces like that in the near future.

Green Calcite has been one of my favourite stones since I first got one twenty years ago. It's so very soothing for the heart chakra and is a heart healer. The more green it is, the more centred on healing, balance, and love; the more brown it is, the more centred on grounding, nurture, and reconnecting you to Mother Earth.

New collection coming on Monday afternoon: Shungite
My personal, empathic sense when first working with this stone: the first word that ever came to mind for me was MYSTERY (and I suppose that makes sense given its mysterious origins). Those searching for the mysteries within their own life (unknown family history, hidden secrets, etc) may well find Shungite a very helpful tool. In addition, I sense it will aid any ancestral healing work. You can probably tap into timelines with it, too - definitely past, and very likely future. Despite its black look, I actually feel very light and buoyant when I hold or wear Shungite. I feel quite happy, actually, so the healing of the shadow comes to mind. Transforming dark to light, low to high, dense to airy ... it'll help you find that equilibrium within yourself, as you need it and as you heal anything you are trying to heal at a soul level. It's a truly mysterious and beautiful stone that is new to me, and I will definitely be working with it, and wearing it often.
24hr Preview and Early Purchase
The pendants look absolutely stunning. There is a collection of eight, 2 wrapped in silver-plated copper, 2 wrapped in natural copper, and 4 wrapped in rose-gold coloured copper.
A 24hr Preview and Early Purchase will be available to my supporters on Ko-fi.com/WBW - to become a supporter, all I ask for is one Cappuccino :) The preview will go out as a supporter-only post on Ko-fi, on Sunday, 21st February at midday. Then, on Monday 22nd, by midday, the collection will be live in the shop and a newsletter will go out to all (sign up for the shop newsletter here, if you haven't already).
I'm so looking forward to the new display - they're something special, because the stone is special. Until then, enjoy the rustic magick of the Green Calcite.
