COUPON CODE AprilSpecial22
Sometimes, we find that our creativity urges us to seek new outlets, or revisit and reinvent old ones. For me, this has taken the form of creating headdresses of late, which is a craft in which I used to indulge many years ago when attending my first Renaissance festivals and SCA or historical re-enactment events. They begin simply, as most crafts do, but have since evolved
As a practicing pagan for more than 30 years, the idea of ritual has played a prominent role in my day-to-day life. It’s important to make a ritual of even the simplest tasks because within this ritual is a cleansing of the spirit and release of negative thoughts. Much like journaling (another passion of mine) is used to dust off the day, whether of a happy nature or not, the same can be said for cleaning, organizing, photography, and creating in its many forms. We can pour the pent-up energies of our lives into these projects and tasks, and free ourselves for new experiences.
With this in mind, I began to craft these new headdresses as an expression of what I felt I lacked in spirit, or what I had an abundance of, in order to release them into the ether and let that energy live a life of its own, to affect my own life or not, as it chose. This may sound too esoteric or eccentric for many, which is understandable, however, I’ve approached the creation of my jewelry in this manner for many years and been better for it.
Wear it, simply, because you can.
