All of the things…..

much has been going on….  some good, some righteously sucky and some , just is…

 

creatively I have been awesome. Many things have been made, new ventures are being taken on and things on that level are rather lovely….  This years Holiday collection will be in two colors and that is a new thing for me.  I am also doing more extensive silver work.  Additionally I am doing custom stone carvings.  they are done meditatively and as with all of my work I listen to what the stone has to say about what is being found within it and follow its lead… we will see how that goes :)….

 

Yes, this blog is ostensibly for Loki….  and I am wholly aware that I have not discussed Him in quite some time,  I am in the midst of writing a rather longish post in regard to Him and things that happened in the desert with His Family.  it was a very powerful experience for me so it is takign much longer than i had anticipated…

 

in the meantime i will leave you with some photos of my new creations…

Ivaldi and I….

I have mentioned briefly that my craft work is dedicated to Ivaldi as the progenitor of the crafting dwarves.  This is a prayer written to him from my heart and soul…

The Masters Craft… A Prayer for Ivaldi

You were the beginning

You whispered through the ages

Through the tools, through the metal, the gems, the things of the earth

The things I listened to…

The things I listened for, for the ways to work

to help them become what they innately sought to become

It was your voice that whispered through the things of the earth

Your craft that worked through my hands

Your skill that brought the things of the earth from rock and ore and made them into treasures worthy of our lore

Thank you for the blessing of your skill and knowledge given to these hands through the mind and heart
