Ancient Dreams...

I have always had dreams of another existence.

Images flash when I close my eyes of bonfires with men bearing swords and furs sitting around, laughing in celebration.
They are raising their mugs and slapping each other on the back, the sound of drums resonates throughout.

And in the Forest...
Running, climbing, living among the trees.
Gathering berries and lazing next to a stream.
It is beautiful.

These visions are a part of my inner self.
They are my sanctuary when I need a place to hide. I have so many dreams and visions like this, surely they must have been from a past life.

I have often suppressed these inspirations when creating my jewelry. Deciding instead to create what I thought others would want to see.
I have always been been a bit eccentric, never following the rules. So, why would my jewelry designs be any different?

Lately, I have been listening more to my heart. And I like it. And apparently, so do others.
My new designs have been very popular, for which I am extremely thankful. It is so inspiring to create something that is a part of your soul and have others fall in love with it.

It encourages me to create more of these wilderness inspired designs. I don't really have a good name for this style...Feral Fantasy? Wilder
ness Gypsy? Celtic Tribal?
Believe me, there are many more rolling around in this noggin' of mine.

These are truly wonderful! I'm especially in love with the cloak clasp with the feathers. Gorgeous!

I think that what draws people to this emerging style of yours is the "real magic" in them. The buyers may not recognize it in the waking world, but there's a resonance, an ancient memory like the collective unconscious.
How spectacular to be able to summon up truth and beauty that speaks to people.

Those really are gorgeous, whatever you decide to call them.

I'm so happy that you've found a successful niche!

I like "Feral Fantasy" it really seems to fit the claws and feathers. Or you could combine two names and do Feral Gypsy, which would acknowledge the primal appeal of the claws, while tying it into your business name :)

As I sit here gazing (listening to the Narnia soundtrack) I've been transported to another time and place. A beautiful, magical place.
