I posted a kind of trial run in the Arts and Crafts forum to assess whether there might be an interest in these: Goddess Sculptures (http://www.mysticwicks.com/showthread.php?t=31132)

The feedback was positive, so I'm starting a thread here. I've made several more in the past few days and will post pics as soon as I finish up the roll. I also just completed a blessing bowl based on intuition and intent of the buyer and am quite pleased with the way she turned out. I also just completed one in runic stadha (yoga) - Dagaz.

Flar made the Creation goddess and I made one similar to it in the spiral goddess style.

Small figures (2 - 3") are $10.00 and the larger ones (4 - 5") are $18.00. I still need to check into the mailing costs. They are made from polyform clay and are quite fragile, so sturdy packing is critical. I'm not set up for PayPal or credit cards so money orders will be fine and payment plans are acceptable.

One of the purposes in making these was to serve those who do not have pagan stores in their area and who cannot afford catalog prices. Sacred Source is quite reasonable but many of their figures are machine-cast. My girls are all completely handcrafted and no two will ever be exactly alike - in fact, some of them do not end up looking as I intended at all but I'm pleased with the end result. The figures are primitive-art style and have lumps, bumps and imperfections just like we do!

Every piece is also charged with Reiki.

So - if you would like to order one, you may ask for a specific style or color based on the pictures or just tell me what you will be using her for and what you would like her to represent for you.

Colors: White, Terracotta, Basics (red, yellow, blue, black, etc.) The Granitex clay (looks like stone when fired) comes in brown, black, green, turquoise, violet and pink. I have not been able to find out where I can get the Granitex in larger quantities than the small individual blocks and am waiting for a response from The Clay Factory.

You can also paint the clay to your own liking, if desired.

These also do not stand up to heat or fire but I do plan to do some research on how I can make some that do in the future and will also be experimenting with jewelry pieces.

I can also do runes but won't compete with my kinsman :loveduv: in that area!

I can't wait til you get it and get your feedback also, since you ordered it sight-unseen! I really enjoyed making it, and as I told you, it seems that little Freyja is my sculpting familiar - so the pieces also have feline energy, folks :T

I hadn't made any for a few weeks and noticed that I need to stay in practice, since they do tend to get better as I go along.

I forgot to say that you can either PM me or post your request here, whatever's easiest.

Well........as you can see, I don't do detail real well, but I can do a representation with Her specific qualities, colors, etc., if that makes sense.

My first attempt at Bast turned out to be a cute little kitty cat! But the next one will be a cat's head on the goddess body.

The other night I was fooling around trying to use up the pink Granitex that I don't really think anyone will want and tried to make a figure in yoga cobra pose - she fell down on her face in the oven and turned out in the most awesome position as a dancing goddess! I'm not sure I can do it again since it was an accident :(

In thinking more about this - if you truly mean "my" rendition of a specific goddess - yes! She just may not look like the standard version, but she would definitely be my interpretation.

Again - each piece is charged with Reiki. Sometimes the Reiki energy is so hot that the clay gets too soft and sticky and I have to put it down and let it rest.

While shipping out a goddess this morning, I had an idea. A while back I was doing some fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation through a place called CF Solutions, an agency which provides nursing care, medicine and equipment to those with CF that is not covered by insurance and for those with no insurance. I still have around 70 pins to get rid of.

These pins are gold plated and have several different designs - a shooting star with a rainbow and a chld's handprint are mostly what I have left. The pins were selling for $2.00 each.

Until they are gone, I will include a pin and $2.00 of the purchase price will go to CF Solutions. After the pins are gone, I will continue to make that donation.

I just wanted to let you all know that I recieved 2 of the Goddess Dolls in a trade with Freyja, and I just love them, (thanks Freyja) ;)

I was so thrilled when I recieved my package, after moving and having everything packed and barely knowing where things are, it was a real treat to open these up.

I saved them for a time when I was alone and it was quite, and I can tell you these little dolls are so very full of the love and energy that was taken to make them.
I covered with goose bumps and just quiet nearly cried the spirit was so very strong!

Now I'll be wanting me a "Blessing Bowl"

Well ya'll take care, I'll be back as soon as I can!
Hugs all around!

I should add here, that I got my beautiful Lady last week. And like Flora, you can feel the wonderful energy radiating from Her. Two Goddess are at work here, the Blessed Mother and her wonderful Daughter, Freyja!

I couldn't be happier with mine!

It won't let me give you any more karma......that is beautiful, thanks so much for posting that. It warms my entire spirit to hear that you're satisfied.

I've made some definite decisions to cut down on regular job time and will be making a lot more of these - so I'm open for business and ready to take more orders :D

So nice actually having something in writing from a satisfied customer! I have some new designs, including some incorporating shells. They're my favorites and I'll have some pics up soon. Two different people who go to lots of shows are taking some with them on consignment for me :boing:

I used the terracotta for the first time tonight and I love it!

Again - a gold heart pin is included with each goddess and $2 goes to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation so that they can continue to give children another tomorrow :heartthro

These are the shell goddesses, representing the sacred element of water.

She can represent any goddess connected to the sea or water element; Yemaya, Freyja, etc. as well as the Moon due to her relationship with the tide.

They can also represent your moontime. You may even want to place a drop of your mentrual blood inside the shell.

Yes, I'll ship anywhere - but I do have to check on the rates. PM me and we'll go from there. The very first one that was given to me in that style was a beautiful turquoise blue. She is on her way to New Mexico as a birthday gift :)

Thanks so much! :hugz: I give gratitude to the Mother for awakening the creative spirit that has lain dormant for so long (a lifetime). Blessed Be!

For the guys ~

I am working on god statues as well. I experimented last night and he fell over in the oven and his feet got toasted and his lil head fell off - :wah: He's anatomically correct (the first thing Flar looked for when I showed it to him) and that part didn't get burned, so don't worry :D

Like the first ones I did, it'll take some practice but I'll get there! I glued his head back on and I may post a pic anyway so you can get an idea of what I'm working toward. He's really not that bad!

Freyja, if I could make a suggestion--Obsidian is volcanic glass! If you've got any of that, it would be perfect. :D

Some clear quartz is also volcanic. :shhhh:

Okay - anyone wanting Goddesses for Yule - please get your order in ASAP!

Your happiness is very important to me, especially since you're giving your hard-earned money. If a Goddess cracks in the oven, I'm not going to glue or repair it - I am going to start all over, so these can take some time.

Prices:

Small ~ $10.00
Large ~ $18.00

Shipping and handling: U.S. and Canada $5.00 per 2 items
Insurance (optional) $1.30

I sent my first international order today and the shipping cost more than the goddess :( It was $10.00 to ship to Scotland.

And don't forget - while supplies last, you get a gold heart pin and $2.00 goes to CF Solutions.

Again, here's the sample group:

Flar's Freyja
November 9th, 2003, 02:22 AM
I forgot to add - that terracotta is available for $5.00 more.

I love it, but it is much more difficult to work with.

In regard to colors - I can get just about anything. I have a good supply of nearly all of the basic colors on hand.

I can also get some colors in a pearlized finish. Thus far I've found a beautiful deep purple and a pale rose pink.

Oh! And I found the book....whew! (thought the thieves took it :rolleyes: ) But it was down in a box, so I'm ready to send that off to you...PM me your addy.

If you have any ideas as to what you'd like to see, I'm open! Maybe the other style.......That site was actually just more fun for me than anything else and there's not a lot of money to be made, but I'm tickled to see the interest!

Hello, All. I am a very new user to forums and boards. I met Freyja at a spirit fair this last weekend and I think we hit it off quite nicely. I think Freyja's Goddesses are wonderful. She and I both sculpt using the medium of polymer clay. My daughter and I make whimsical dragons and wizards. I would really appreciate some feedback on our pieces, if anyone has the inclination to do so. I would post an image of some of them, if I could figure out how! Barring that, here's the url: www.thedragonschest.com Peace.....

If you just put your site in the thread, people can go visit and see your awesome dragons and wizards. And if you scroll down to the bottom of the reply box, you'll see "Manage Attachments" under it. You can upload pics from your comp there. First make sure to click "Add File" after the upload and then wait for the file to appear before you hit "All Done." it'll then take you back to finishing and adding your post!

Welcome to MW!

Freyja,

I don't know much at all about reike (sp?), but is it possible for you to infuse a Goddess sculpture with a particular "wish"? What I mean is, my best friend at work was recently let go and is feeling very down. Could you infuse a sculpture with positive energy for confidence, well-being, success, etc? Just not sure how this works!

Thanks....Peace.............

Yes, I can put both Reiki and magical energies into the figure. Keep in mind that Reiki energy goes where it is needed, typically to the cause. Making the girls is pretty amazing when I have an idea of who I am making them for. They tend to take on a life of their own. For instance, Jenne's (above) doesn't look anything like any of the others I've done. She's definitely her goddess!

I just thought I'd post a testamonial since I was given one of Freyja's Goddess figurines by a very special person for my birthday this year. Mine is light blue, sitting with a sprial shaped seashell and she is absolutely gorgeous! She sits on my altar and I just love to sit and look at her.

I loved her so much I ordered one from Freyja to give to a good friend for Yule. If you are thinking about buying one, don't hesitate. You will not be disappointed! :D

(((Jenne))) & (((WC))) I seem to be feeling a bit better this morning although still pretty weak. It makes me feel pretty guilty and whiney, though - since Flar must feel like this most of his waking hours and never complains.

I may have gotten it from the slot machines at the casino - and I haven't wanted to make anything for fear of passing it on through the girls since most germs are transmitted through our hands.

Thanks so much, she was one of my very first attempts. I'm thinking about putting those out as little meditation goddesses, since they can be held in your hand. This one is similar and another first of her kind. You've inspired me now to make that one in this size, which is quite a bit larger:

Thanks for your help! I still love that early one. By the way, I know they're all different, but what are their sizes (in inches)?

They have grown quite a bit since I've gotten more confidence! The spiral goddess that you like was only around 2 inches tall. The white one measures just under five inches. Most of the ones I'm doing now are around 3-4 inches tall.

Of course, since I don't use molds I can't ever estimate exactly what size each one comes to be. I really like the size of the white dancing goddess and am moving toward making most of the standing ones that size. The white clay is less expensive than the colors, so I'll have to price them based on the materials used.

I saw these little armoires at Michael's and am thinking of making tiny little shrines that people could take to their offices. They're unfinished - I thought I'd paint them and put a tiny little goddess, maybe a stone and some flowers inside. What do you think?

Hmmm, interesting idea. :huh:

You could put a small shell or something inside to represent water....maybe a feather for air? Make it like a little portable altar type of thingy?

Could be good also for those living in "the closet" and don't want anything too 'out there' in their home but can be placed on a mantle or something.

I just took my Nyquil, so bear with me here. :lol:

LOL, yes, I think you've got the idea! The armoires are like little closets, they have doors that can be closed. Portable altar is exactly what I'm thinking here.

She's a classic, a neolithic type. More info here:

http://www.hominids.com/donsmaps/willendorf.html

Her bellly should have been bigger, but you know how the clay goes wooooerrrgggwaaaa in the oven, I was afraid she'd squash down. She did fall over but I heard her and was able to fix her. Next time I'm going to do one resting on a rock.

Great idea! The flash doesn't seem to be working either :( But when it does they turn out too light. My photoshop program does the light thing, wonder if it would help.

Here are some not so good pics of where we are on the portable altars. The last one is half-painted and the shelves are smaller, so the goddess will have to be about a head size smaller than the first.

Thanks! I'd love to see your work! I haven't tried using armatures, so they are not hollow - they're solid clay. I use Sculpey polymer clay. It comes in several different types and is fired by putting it in the oven. The instructions say 275 degrees but I never use more than 225. The Gaia is made from their Granitex, which looks like stone when fired. The Willendorf is made from their terracotta, which has its pros and cons. I love the look and the feel when I'm working with it, but it tends to stretch - I've had to do a few arm amputations because of that :T Sculpey III is easiest to work with. I charge my pieces with Reiki energy and my hands can become so hot that it makes the clay sticky and I have to put it down for a while.

Desert Yaqui - the armoires actually came from one of your ideas! - the 'complete altar set' that you suggested. I'm having so much fun making these! I'm currently painting another style. I'm using a lavender base coat and antiquing it with blue and silver - very pretty!

I have used sculpy and femo but never anything so big. it doesn't crack? They must not be too big. You know...(I'm an art history teacher) The original Venus of Willendorf is only about 4.5 inches tall....ahem...there will be a test.

The Willendorf I did is just about that size! A friend of mine makes angels that are around 12 inches tall and she hasn't had any problem with cracking. I've only had one piece crack and I later deteremined that this was because it had an air bubble. This was a blessing bowl where I used a tealight cup for an armature. Again, I use a much lower than recommended temperature for firing, and I've found that you can not touch or move Sculpey figures when they are still hot. For some reason, they're more likely to break then.

I'm very picky about seams. I'm still looking for the perfect tool to smooth out small areas. Currently, I'm using a blending stick that's actually for painting. I tried one of those blending sponges on a makeup pencil and it worked well, but the colors in Sculpey get on other things and I wasn't able to clean it frequently without wearing it out. I can't seem to find these without the makeup.

they have some things called wipe out tools that are rubber tipped tools for doing clay, or you can also use them to wipe out paint from watercolor paper etc. Another thing that I found is at Sally's beauty supply. They have these rubber tipped things that you use to push your cuticles back with.

Freyja,
Try Target, Walmart, or KMart. In the makeup section there should be a "supplies" area that sells makeup sponges and extra eyepencil things like that. You may find what you're looking for there. (and they usually come 20 to a pack or something for not too much money. That is if you're talking about what I think you're talking about! :lol:

I haven't seen them but I'll look again, I didn't really look very deliberately - but if we're not talking about exactly the same thing, I know what you might be talking about and they make work as well - and I already have a 20 pack......:T I think you mean the ones for eyeshadow. I never thought about those, so I'll try them!

I have the same problem with clay clay. the smoothing tight spaces.

I have taken to keeping my nails cut very short, so I can use my pinky. But even then, theyare sometimes too big. I picked up a pack of wooden sculpting tools at MJ Designs. They have some ends that are pretty good at smoothing.

Same here, and they still end up brushing up against the piece and making a mark.

One of the first things we had to learn in pottery class, is not fingernails. you can't throw with fingernails and they nick into everything when you are trying to work on it. But I don't seem to be able to grow fingernails anyway. Mine are weak and break easily.

Lamoondove, I'm so glad you like her! I will be making a Diana in the future ;) as well as Oshun and a few others. :lol: Flar told me not to post that, because everyone will want one.....I am very pleased with her and will be making a lot more like that! I'm also going to try adding faces soon..........So maybe you can get one later. This one has the energies you requested and I took time to research the colors. The picture doesn't do the silver clay justice at all - I think you'll like the way it glitters :)

((((Gala)))) Thanks for the compliment. I've cut my nails short and they STILL nick things up! Very frustrating!

OMG! I'm just now getting up the courage to attempt faces!!! LOL - anyway, there may not be any more bald goddesses unless they're requested, so those of you who have my early work may have something valuable there! :lol: Actually, Lamoondove, I was looking for glass eyes in the crafts store yesterday and couldn't find any. I'm wondering where to get them. I'm not good at painting tiny things but some of the ones I've seen on other sites have the glass eyes and they are lifelike.

Thanks so much! I wish the pictures did them justice! Doesn't she look ready to get down and boogie? No matter what angle I tried, I couldn't get that in a picture.

I don't know how to make them less fragile :( Someone told me to glaze them because it makes the clay stronger - I actually didn't like glazing yours because the glaze got on the stone. The colors actually look fine unglazed and I haven't been glazing them - and you've confirmed that it doesn't really help.

When you go glue shopping, get the Crazy Glue gel - it works much better BUT be careful that you only use a small drop or two. If you use too much and it oozes out, you can't wipe it off. If it is a clean break, you won't even be able to tell. Bondini is also a wonderful glue, like Crazy Glue but better, but I can't find it around here anymore, so I don't know if it still exists.

I sure hope you can fix her! The store I buy from has discontinued that color :wah: and I haven't checked yet to see if I can still get it.

A dear friend is revamping my site but she's really busy and I don't know when she'll be finished. I tried to make a few changes on my own since a few people are doing banner exchanges with me. Let me know what you think:

it was a good clean break so you won't really see. seem is almost invisible with her little tape cast so I don't think there will be much of one when I glue her back together. Right now there's just 2 strips of tape holding her arm up from behind. looks like a sports injury :D

Not your fault at all this happened, but my own. You know the saying about a bull in a china shop? Well the whole world's my china shop!

BTW everyone at work was raving about her. Thought I did it. :D set them straight on that right away.

They DO break very easily though. I AM disappointed that my making them larger and more solid hasn't helped with that. The clay does glue very nicely.

I have many visions for the new goddess, Flora, and tons of other ideas! Think about what you would like to use her for and we can go from there. Don't forget that I can add stones, shells, etc. depending upon availability, and that auntie Freyja has layaway :D

Ooohh, white would be awesome - but - you may want to do these yourself because then you'd be putting your own energy into them. Think about it and let me know.

She's YOUR goddess, and if you feel she needs eyes, then paint away! I'm glad you've already dreamed a good dream :D (I'll go look in a sec).

As for the negative energies, if you feel that she may have picked up any, then by all means cleanse her like any other magical tool. I wouldn't worry about energies from your children or friends, but if you feel better cleansing her, then by all means do so. We can usually sense when one of our tools has picked up negatives. Yours is holding a pretty hefty amethyst cluster there, but the way she's holding it I'm not sure how susceptible it is to other energies since it's kind of protected.

Enjoy!

Thank you so much ,, you have made my day by letting me know she's really ok .. By boys did touch her but with happy good energy ,,, not negativity ,, she does have heavty cluster there :) She's ok ... One time a friend told me that ya had To cleanse everything you got and was a toll of anysort.. I didnt know if this was true and ,, I think you got very good evergys so i truly didnt want to take your out !!!


And ya know what ,,, silly me ,, you are so right if i paint on the symbols i will be doing it with my energys adding that to it ,, what was i thinking ,, i been saying that alot today ,,, was talking to my daughter on the phone ,, she says mom what was you thinking ,,lol,,,

,k, White is good for the mini alter then ,,,,:) I will have to hit the craft store get me some paints will have to paint my symbols in private or when boys in school or Boys will be like MOm paint this for me paint that ,, One still wants me to paint Flames on his hot wheel car ,, I didnt get to it that day and they havent been out again yet but if they see me at it ,,look out ,,, everything they own ,,, almost:)
some or another needs to be on it 4 what ever reason ,, tickes me but can get agervating when it is something else ya want to get done first....

hey ya Freja I got another question i been wondering about ?????
I made some lotion fused with Frankinsence and Lavender,, smells great ,, i was using it and looking over at my Goddess sitting there as I was rubing the wonderfull bled of the two lotions on my arm and was thinking ,, hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm i wonder if i could take the bottle of all three if there properties would be usefull by dabing a touch on her ?? Think That would also help to or No ?????? Couldnt hurt anything ,, right ??????
Please 4 give so meny questions ,, but i still learning lots and want to make sure of certain things befor i try it ,, More confident i guess as i am doing it if i checked all reascorces,, parden the spelling i know that has got to be spelled wrong,, not a hit the wrong key thing , :shhhh:

LaMoondove, I love your questions and enthusiasm! I'm one that doesn't go by the "book," and just do what moves me. Again, if this is something that you feel will enhance the energies and the tools you use, do what you are moved to do. While I also agree with the concept that we need to cleanse our tools, especially gemstones - I had an experience where I don't think it was what I should have done. I picked up a black quartz in a shop and its energy vibrated so much that it almost knocked me down. I took it home and cleansed it, and that energy was gone. People told me that it would come back but it didn't and I was incredibly disappointed. So again, just do what feels right to you. It's usually the Goddess giving you directions ;)

Lamoondove
December 26th, 2003, 01:47 AM
Yes i to like that concept do what ya think feels right ,, that is mostly all i have been doing and but yet there are certain things i read or hear and wonder hummmm wonder if this true and what would it do ,,, or not do ??


Man that bite about loosing the energys from the gem...I havent been feeling strong energys that vib in my stones and things yet ,, does that mean i aint trying hard enough or i am doing something wrong mabe ,, something i can fine tune up i wonder to feel these vibes I seek ,,,lol,,,, but true ....:)

Hummmmmmmmmmmmmm again i say .... :colorful:
and see there ya go again ,, bringing something to my attention i should realised but didnt think of ,,,,
I thank My Lord and Ladies continualy for what they do for me with me through me ,,, Hummmmmmmmmmmm

well well well there ya have it ,,, some times it is right there just need someone to point it out for you once in a while,,,,,,,,,,,, in my case more offten ,,lol,,,,

Ok ne more question then i will be questionless the rest the night ,k, :lol:

Ready ..... here it is .........
nop never mind i figured out the answer to that one ,, I was going to ask if i can do it just sitting on the couch or set up a alter,, but have decided that a alter would be better to do it ,would have stronger vibes mabe but how i can do it for now will be ok not hurt anythig till i can do it the other way ,,,,
Noooo I got it ,,, I can use my mini alter to onoint her with the oils ,,, yeaaaaaaa ,,,

She still get a dab of Frankincense till then ,, she wanna smell good to ,,,:)

:mmm: Frankincense is my favorite! I hope to be blending some oils soon to go with my girls. Yes, my story about that quartz is freaky - I never expected that. You're not doing anything wrong - it could be that gems are not what you resonate with most. I rarely feel that kind of energy from gemstones. I wear them all the time and I do think they work, but I don't often feel that buzz. Some people are more sensitive to those energies than others. Many stones feel really good to me, but not like that one did. That baby nearly knocked me off my feet! I also don't resonate as well with tarot as I do with runes. We all have different gifts, you will find yours!

Sleep well! and have beautiful dreams.

But i really Love readings and learning how the different reading work,,, I Loved the way you decifer a dream let alone you read the stones so good to ,,, :colorful:

Some( Like You ) have meny talents...
and reconise there talents and can put em to use ,,, for good to come of them ,,,
This is also something i am trying to learn ,,,
how to Know and to make good use of things that do come easy for me ...

My fav thing in the world to do work wise right now would to be doing something of the path that would help others along the way as i have received help from all of you ,,,

One day i would like to be doing dream pillows and arts and crafts for a goddess shop if not haven a Goddess shop of my own at least be involed in and aiding to others needs in someway ,,,, But my problem is I get a idea and start something and do it for family and friends and never take it farther ,, Like the dream pillows ,,
i did lots of em for my boys and mailed a big ol box to ohio with a dream pillow for each family member .. was wanting to see if the Goddess at the Goddess shop wanted to sell some in her store but she already got so much stuff she cant even put out yet she told me ,,, well there went that idea,,,

Anyways ,, I think you are so right one day i will find my true calling and be able to do something with it .....:)

Till then i just sit back have fun learnig as i do ,,
and wait till it comes to me :) :colorful:

I sure do Love reading things here and learning here ,, I have more friends here at MW that feel like Family members that truly care ,,than i ever dreamed i would have ,,, It is a Blessing just being able to come here and Be with the family here that help me grow and Learn !!!!

Thanks! I'd love to see your work! I haven't tried using armatures, so they are not hollow - they're solid clay. I use Sculpey polymer clay. It comes in several different types and is fired by putting it in the oven. The instructions say 275 degrees but I never use more than 225. The Gaia is made from their Granitex, which looks like stone when fired. The Willendorf is made from their terracotta, which has its pros and cons. I love the look and the feel when I'm working with it, but it tends to stretch - I've had to do a few arm amputations because of that :T Sculpey III is easiest to work with. I charge my pieces with Reiki energy and my hands can become so hot that it makes the clay sticky and I have to put it down for a while.

Desert Yaqui - the armoires actually came from one of your ideas! - the 'complete altar set' that you suggested. I'm having so much fun making these! I'm currently painting another style. I'm using a lavender base coat and antiquing it with blue and silver - very pretty!

I just been brousing around your web site ,,, Love all the Ladies and the T Bowl ,,,, Is it a water fountain??
You are so Blessed to be so creative and so smart :)

This is Flora done in terra cotta - except in this clay she seems more like Rose to me. I made this one for a Yule gift for my son's girlfriend:

So I've got my Green Lady at work where she is working her positive mojo. Things have definitely changed for the better. I'll post a pick of my work setting as soon as I can.
In the mean time I'll just share my version of a portable altar, until I get my very own from Frey of course. :D
It's a wooden bowl I found at a store that I felt was perfect for what I wanted, I filled it with sand. Placed my lady on it as well as a smooth stone I've been using to represent the Goddess aspect, a Moonstone sphere, and a white candle. It's all laying on a pink hanky.

Had to go back a page to read this - I love both myself, but I think I'm a bit partial to the terra cotta. I'm thinking about doing the white ones with different colors for hair but I haven't tried one yet so I don't know how they'll look. I'm thinking gold for blonde, pearlized red for red and silver for crone.

These are substantially larger than the others. I can do smaller ones to fit your budget, but I like them better in the larger sizes.

Freyja,

How about extending her arms up a little further so that they touch over her head? I don't know if that would add to the strength, but it would put them out of the way a little more so they wouldn't catch on something and break off.

Those are pretty though! *smiles* I may have to work out a deal with you again, I could test it for you and see how it will hold up to regular wear.

Thanks :hugz: I actually did already think of that, and the problem is in the installation of the loop that holds the jump ring. A piece of wire with a loop has to go into the clay, and the arms are not thick enough to accomodate it - unless I make it with a tiny space in between.........may try that. I've got to get better with the camera so that you all can see how pretty they really are! Photos just don't do them justice.

LOL, I was talking with someone this morning about shipping costs, and so far I've been paying about 7 cents after the outrageous $5 I charge for shipping for the goddesses - and I'm not even figuring in the costs of the bubble wrap, box and tape, etc. I know I've been losing money but I'm afraid to figure out exactly how much :hairraise Ah well, it's worth it. Those of you who have ordered have given such wonderful feedback and I can't put a price on how good that makes me feel!

I know exactly how you feel. After getting the box, the bubble wrap, etc. etc., and all, then actually shipping costs added in (cause the dragons weigh more than I wish they did - lots of clay in those babies), I'm losing money everytime I ship one. But to really charge what the shipping is would be, well as you put it: :hairraise !

Bubble wrap $1.00 -2.00 a roll at Wally world as well as tape. I've yet to find boxes that aren't too painfull.

One night last week I went to Wally World at around 10 p.m. and found that the employees in the health and beauty section were unpacking boxes of deodorant, lotions and shampoos that are the perfect size for my goddesses. When I asked for some, they gave me a few that they hadn't yet sliced the tape off the bottoms from yet. So all I have to worry about are the tops, much easier. Yes, bubble is $1.97 for a small roll, to be exact. It only does about 6 goddesses. They have a larger roll but hardly keep it in stock. Popcorn is $1.99 at one of the local mailing places for a small bag.

I recycle all of this when possible but I have ended up buying quite a bit in the last month or two :(

One of my clients works at a computer place and she has been saving some pieces of foam for me, good for lining larger boxes.

If you ever have extra, that would be great! I don't need them that often, just when I pack larger boxes. I stuff the smaller ones so full of popcorn that the goddess can't float around much.

Also - they apparently are discontinuing the teal clay :( I found a few blocks at the Hobby Lobby at 51st and Harvard. You might try their other store to see if they have any left. I know that I bought what little Michael's had left a while back. It's such an awesome color - maybe we should write the company? It also seems that they might be discontinuing navy blue as well - I just used that for one of the new goddesses and I'm not sure there's a suitable replacement.

All day long, three goddesses have graced the edge of my desk, bringing a feeling of peace and calm whenever I look at them. Flora is larger, and will likely stay in this spot, which isn't where I'd originally intended, but peace and calm in the office today has been helpful! The two smaller ones seem like they were just made to fit in the palm of a hand for meditation. There's a pretty braid that looks like a wreath of laurel on one, and the other holds the spiral shell.

Freyja, I hope you won't be offended if I say one of the things I love about them is their rusticity and that they have simple, strong lines. And so much heart and power!

They brought me a lot of happiness all day. I bought these as a gift for myself when an unexpected little windfall came my way. And I'm not disappointed - they really are a gift!

Try the state offices. They should have a big shredder (we did) and you'd probably be able to take the stuff, though it depends. You would have to pack a lot in, but that's not really a problem.

Not at all, and I love it that you are confirming something that Flar said when I was looking at these fancy, life-like faeries that others are doing and I said that my stuff looked pitiful next to it. He said that anyone can do likenesses and that the essence of the piece is what's important - he used Picasso as an example.

I can't begin to put into words what I feel when I get feedback like yours. That is much more reward than a money payment.

I was so appreciative of that large order that I wanted to do something a little extra for you. Your centering goddess is a little larger than the standard. I made one of those wreaths as an experiment on the little green goddess that goes by on the banner and thought it would be a nice addition to yours. Silver is for divinatory abilities - which you definitely have - and the intent is to enhance those.

You are not the first person who has said that they feel good in your hand for meditation, so I need to market them that way. I LOVE holding them myself!

Again, thanks to all of you. MoonDust, have you ever told them how I actually messed up your first order? :T I love it that the girls make everyone so happy, and I love throwing in those little extras. If I do nothing else during my time on this earth but make people smile, it's enough.

:T The extra Goddess was included because although I made the wrong goddess the first time, MoonDust agreed to accept it, even though she didn't have to. It was one of my best and I really felt it was for her, but since she'd really ordered a Centering Goddess and mentioned that she would probably order one in brown later, I made her one at no charge to make up for the error.

Here is a Willendorf in the same pearl green, as well as the new spiral goddess pendant with arms that will be less likely to break. This pic's a bit blurry, I need to take another:

Jade, I love the texture, too - they just feel smooth and good in the hand! I'm so happy with mine.

Freyja, more great work from you - I love Oshun!
