:: Placitas Holiday Sale ::

A quick heads-up: I will be showing at the Placitas Holiday Sale this year! It’s been many years since I have done a show, preferring to focus on online sales instead. This year I thought I’d mix things up! If you are in northern New Mexico next weekend, come see me at the Winery in the historic village of Placitas, November 17 & 18, 10-5 Saturday and 10-4:30 Sunday. I’ll have a little table there.

Please note that both this shop and my website shop will be closed during the show. So if you've had your eye on something, you might not want to wait as it might be gone after the show.

Meanwhile I’ve been very busy with this and that, polymer clay work in particular. This is a really rich and wonderful medium, but I’m sad to say I’ve neglected it since taking up metal clay and I’ve had the nudge from the universe to get back into it lately. I forgot what a fantastic material it is, it can look like virtually anything and I already have some new elements that are very convincing replications of raku ceramics. I am seeing new artifacts on the horizon…

I may list some new pieces in this or my Etsy shop over the next few days, so stay tuned!

Blessings,

Dawn

:: Sun Temple and Sun's Path Redux ::

I have this beautiful new handwoven cairn necklace for you today, an elemental piece straight from the center of the desert Dreaming. Also, you’ll see that I’ve relisted the Sun’s Path talisman necklace with a newly designed cord. The original with picture jasper heishe just didn’t work and so I lightened it with some charming and very rich little Czech glass spacers, trading the heishe out for picture jasper rondelles.

In addition, I’ve relisted the ceremonial forked wand, a truly lovely autumn piece. This light, feminine prayer wand is made with handmade pipestone beads and deep golden Baltic amber beads, all on a stick of juniper from my own land. The wood is so softly finished it feels like silk.


:: Welcome Autumn Sale! :: September 13-30 :: Everything 30% Off! ::

I am having a storewide sale both in this shop and my Etsy shop, Desert Talismans, to celebrate the arrival of Autumn and cooler weather! Starting here TODAY at 11:45 am (why that time is anyone’s guess, but that’s what Squarespace decided…) EVERYTHING WILL BE 30% OFF THROUGH THE END OF SEPTEMBER. Now is the time to go for those talismans that have been calling you for so long.

This fall I am participating in the Placitas Holiday Sale and expect to be selling a number of pieces there, so if you are counting on something, I recommend that you do not wait. And if you are in the area, be sure to come on up to Anasazi Fields Winery and see me! This is a terrific juried show which draws many people from far and wide.

I am also being called to devote more of my time to painting and drawing and will be listing new pieces in the shops as they come available. Creating prints and print sales are also a possibility being researched.

Finally, I am developing workshops on various spiritual subjects, another long-neglected area that is demanding attention. So there are many exciting new things in the works! Stay tuned for more details and enjoy the sale!

Blessings,

Dawn

:: Today's Offerings ::

This is it for now...it's back to the workbench tomorrow!

:: A Fossil Horn Coral Pinkie Ring ::

Finally I am getting new pieces listed, after a very busy week followed by my kitty, Zia, who needed emergency surgery this weekend.  All is looking to turn out well, and meanwhile I have four new pieces after this one, waiting to be listed.  Look for them in the next couple of days.

 

:: A Raw Amber Talisman ::

Hello everyone!  I have been hard at work on a large mixed media drawing this week, but have managed to do this necklace as well.  The amber is just incredible and these unworked pieces are hard to come by.  I will be back at work on new talismans in the coming week.
