Silver Dreamcatcher Necklace with Turquoise Blue Bead, Boho Necklace, Hippie Necklace, Feather Necklace, Gift for Her, Friendship Gift

The Ojibwe people (also Ojibwa), or Chippewa are a large group of Native American and have an ancient legend about the origin of the dreamcatcher. Storytellers speak of the Spider Woman, known as Asibikaashi; she took care of the children and the people on the land. Eventually, the Ojibwe Nation spread to the corners of North America and it became difficult for Asibikaashi to reach all the children. So the mothers and grandmothers would weave magical webs for the children, using willow hoops and sinew, or cordage made from plants. The dreamcatchers would filter out all bad dreams and only allow good thoughts to enter our mind. Once the sun rises, all bad dreams just disappear.

Turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home.

Autumn Reading

It's Autumn here in Australia.  The weather has cooled slightly and it's lovely to spend time outdoors in the garden or curled up indoors with a book or two.  Check out my pretty Autumn bookmark to add a little bling to your favourite books.

Featured Etsy Shop - MythicSculptlore

Welcome Shop Owner Kathryn Fotorny

I started sculpting in 2008 and was instantly drawn to it; each lump of clay could have endless possibilities. Since I've always loved accessories, creating jewelry seemed like a natural fit. Once I started, I couldn't stop. I currently live in a tiny apartment right outside the “gorges” Ithaca, NY. There's no room for a studio, much less a dining room table, so every nook has become a storage compartment and every surface a work space. Thankfully, I don't need machines or fancy tools, but instead just my clay-covered hands and a healthy imagination.

Featured Shop - JamJamsJam

Welcome Shop Owner - Maggie

My days are fun and busy being a stay at home mama to my one year old son, Jack. The decision to open a shop on Esty came about after my son was born. I wanted a job that allowed me to be home with him while also doing something I love. Jack is the inspiration for the items I make as well as the shop name, JamJamsJam. I studied at Academy of Art University in San Francisco with a focus on textile design. I enjoy all kinds of crafting and anything DIY. Whether it's reupholstering a bench or canning veggies, I love learning how to do new things that interest me.

Hamsa Evil Eye Jewellery

In many cultures, the Hamsa Hand is one of the original protective signs. It is believed that the one who wears it or hangs it in his house, will be protected from the EVIL EYE and it will bring positive energy, happiness, prosperity and health. The Hamsa (root means "five") symbolizes the Creators protective hand. 

According to some cultures, most of everyday misfortunes happen because of the evil eye. The human eye has the capability to transmit both positive and negative energy. The Evil Eye also called the invidious eye and the envious eye, is that a person can harm you, your children, by "looking at them" with envy and praising them.

There are various protective talismans to protect against the evil eye. Here are a few available from my etsy store:

Featured Shop - BlessedNecessities

Welcome Etsy Shop Owner Julia

Having had success in treating the symptoms of multiple autoimmune illnesses with essential oils, I wanted to make body and household products that carry these benefits and share them at a reasonable price for anyone that wants to join me in taking control of the amount of chemicals we use on our bodies and in our homes.

Blessed Necessities products are based on pure plant extracts and therapeutic grade essential oils. I infuse all my herbs myself and hand blend it all! Everything we use is all natural and organic wherever possible. Blessed Necessities offers nourishing and healing salves, customized cleansing facial blends, room sprays, nail oils, synergistic blends, sanitizers, repellants, etc!

I have become so passionate about this journey that I am now in school getting my Clinical Aromatherapist Certification so I can blend on a more medicinal level. I am learning so much and I share it with my customers as I go!

Blessed Necessities products are formulated to give your skin everything it needs and nothing it doesn't.
