I’ll Rope You A Star ~ a handmade, little stars, Wand.

Rope a Star  Wand

Did you know … that a Wand isn’t in the least bit magical?  It can’t do a thing.  It has absolutely NO power. NOTHING Let me explain more . . .

All a wand actually is,  is a ‘tool’ on which to focus your attention.  Believe me, if wands themselves really could do ‘stuff’ all on their own, I certainly wouldn’t collect the pretty wands which I do! (or any other sort of wand for that matter!).

Let me take you back to your school days   Imagine for a moment that you’re sat in the classroom, and you’re giggling and whispering with the girl next to you.  Suddenly the teacher’s voice BOOMS out, and shouts your name!  You look up and see him standing there, with a cross face,  hands on hips.  He looks right at you,  gives you a stern telling off and tells you that you’re disrupting his class.

Embarrassing eh?

Now let’s replay that scene again . . . 

The teacher’s voice  BOOMS  out, and shouts your name!  You look up and see your teacher standing there pointing his index right at you.  He’s looking very cross.  Looking directly at you but still pointing his finger at you, shaking it the merest amount, he raises his voice and tells you off, – all the time he’s doing this he continues to point that finger at you.

Can you see (and feel)  how much more ‘menacing’ the whole scene becomes simply because he’s pointing his finger at you?

That finger doesn’t have anything magical about it, and yet it seems to hold so much more ‘power’.

That’s exactly the same as a wand.  All a finger pointing at you is doing is focusing your attention.  (and the person who’s pointing at you’s attention).  A wand is exactly the same thing.   It just focus’ the attention.

Well now I’ve blathered on about how wands don’t have any power, you can perhaps now understand why they don’t ‘freak’ me out, and even why I love to make pretty, magical to the eye, wands!   And this  ‘Rope a Star’ wand is magical to the eye.

Rope a Star  Wand

The inspiration for this wand came from my childhood.  My mother used to tell me a poem, song, or story (I sadly can’t remember which) when I was little, but I do remember that I loved it.  Sadly I cannot remember what the story, song, poem was – and my mother has passed on, so I can’t ask her about it – but I remember a line from it which went something like:  ‘I’ll throw a rope out and rope a star just for you’ …  and that line conjured up such wonderful images inside my little mind,  and it still does now.

So I decided that I would throw a rope out and rope a star –  but this time I’d make mine a rope which wrapped itself around a wand, and the stars would hang from the wand itself.

There are little silver stars which dangle from lot’s of places on the wand, and there’s a crescent moon with stars hanging from the heel of the wand (at the top end as you’re looking at it in the photo.  The ribbon and star cuff around the top of the wand is removable.

Over the years I’ve tried to find the poem, song or story which mentions this ‘roping in a star’ and I’ve never found it.  But if you happen to know it or know where to find it, I’d be thrilled if you could either let me know or pop a link into a comment so that I could go and find it.

Have a truly blessed rest of your day, all,  . . .  and a fabulously twinkly, star lit night.

Interview with an Introverted Crafter

The Introverted Crafter

I’m a member of a forum which has a section just for craftersor to be more specific, a section encouraging crafters to craft in more money-saving ways – or  ‘Stash Bust’ as it’s called.  This  ‘stash bust’  entails pledging to make & craft items from the crafty stash of stuff we all already have, rather than go out and buy even more stuff.

On that forum I come into contact with crafters from across the United Kingdom  who I’ve never ‘met’ before,  one of whom is Emma.   Emma is a total delight.  A breath of fresh air.  She’s a ‘new to crafting‘, fresh out of the box, crafter.  She doesn’t know how to do everything, but has a go at everything with gusto, and that’s what’s important!

But – there’s something which makes life a little more challenging for Emma.  There’s a clue in the title of this post.

She’s introverted.  Not just a little bit, but a lot.  A lot-a-lot.  She finds it so difficult to chat with anyone, that she barely socializes.

You’d think that was enough to cope with wouldn’t you,  but Emma faces even more challenges.

  You see, Emma also suffers with severe depression.  When I ‘talk’ to her on the internet, a more delightful, honest, generous, genuinely lovely person I’ve yet to meet on the net.  In fact – she’s so amazingly lovely that I always feel like I’m hugging her when I post on her blog or talk to her through the typed word.  You’d never guess that she had these problems unless she’d told you.

I think Emma is so terrific that I wanted to kind of help to widen her world and introduce her to all of the really great folks I’ve so far met on WordPress;  so I asked her if I could ‘interview’ her for my blog.    I never thought in a million years that she’d say yes,  but she knocked my socks off and agreed!   So without further ado,  I would like you to meet a fabulous crafting friend, and fellow blogger, by the name of  Emma.

The Introverted Crafter

Interview with an Introverted Crafter

 

Hi Emma.  So that I can give my Blog readers an idea of who you are, I’d like to ask you firstly: 
Where in the world do you live? 
 

Hi Cobs,   I live in the South West of England, and have done so for almost twenty years.  It’s a lovely place to live, although, due to my introversion, I do have a small issue with the summer season due to the sudden swelling of the population! I’m lucky to live so close to the sea, and, I must admit, I do take it for granted sometimes. The main drawback is the lack of craft shops in my nearby vicinity!

Ohh – I never knew you lived SW of England.  So do I!  Where abouts?  [Emma gave me a rough idea of where she lived and we discovered that we were roughly around 3 hours drive away from each other.  Small world, eh?]

When did you start your life of being a Crafter? 

I started crafting last year. (2013)   Depression suddenly hit me hard, and I was having trouble coping with day-to-day life when, one day, I walked into W.H. Smiths (British chain of shops selling books, stationery, magazines, newspapers etc. – and  the first chain store company in the world) and started browsing the magazines. I liked the look of a freebie on a cross stitch magazine so, on a whim, I bought it and the rest is history!  It has been my saving grace over the last year.

Can you remember your first craft project?  What was it?  Do you still have it?

My first craft project was a little tea set that I painted.  Both of my brothers have a talent at drawing and painting which unfortunately skipped me, so it was nice to overcome my fears and do something for myself. My drawing has come on a little since then,  in fact I was quite proud of the sharpie mugs I did for people on my birthday.

What’s a typical day for you involve, Emma? 

My typical day can vary depending on how many hours I do at work. I try to get some aspects of crafts into everyday, as well as some much-needed exercise! I am also writing a book at the moment, and occasionally do those free online courses from FutureLearn, in an attempt to keep my mind active! 

Wow!  I can see you being really good at writing.  You know how to put words together so that they flow.  Not everyone has that ability.

So … Where do you get your inspiration to craft from? 

Inspiration comes from all sorts of places. Having a large craft stash helps; you can be sorting through it one day and suddenly know exactly what you want to do with a specific piece. I also use other people’s blogs as inspiration. I think inspiration can also come from who the intended gift or card is for. For example, my dad has spent a large part of his life playing musical instruments so, when it came to deciding on a father’s day present for him, I decoupaged a box with music paper and added little wooden musical instruments. Simple but effective.

What sort(s) of things do you like to make?

I like making all sorts of things, and it changes depending on how I feel at the time! I love cross stitching, and mixed media art.

Is there a particular ‘medium’ do you like to craft in above any other?

I don’t prefer a particular medium to work in; I think that each project lends itself to a certain medium. However, I do love working with shrink plastic, which is a bit unusual for most crafters, and I am trying to develop my skills in polymer clay.

Ems Mad Hatter Pendent

We have another similarity!  – we share a love of Polymer.  (I’ve also seen some of your results with shrink plastic Ems, and they’re really great.  My absolute favourites are those grave stones which you made and posted photographs of on your blog.  I LOVE those!)

Is there a craft that you like more than any other?

I’m torn between stitching and papercraft when it comes to picking favourites. Cross stitching introduced me into the world of crafting, and it has taught me the fine art of patience.  However, papercrafting allows me to be more creative in a way that I thought I could never be.

Ems Card

Is there a craft you would love to try?  (and .. If so, why haven’t you had a go at it yet?)

There isn’t a new craft I would like to try per se,  but I would like to develop my skills in papercraft and polymer clay.  I’d love to get Tim Holtz compendium of curiosities and work through the various techniques,  although I can see that would be an expensive venture!

Ems Fishy Box

Emma,  – here’s a question that I’d hate to have to answer myself:  If there was someone who was about to embark on their life of crafting and who hadn’t ever crafted even one thing before …  what is the best tip or bit of advice you could give to them, do you think?

The best tip I could give to someone who wants to get into crafting is to just dive into the deep end and try doing anything. You may not like your first attempts, it may take a while to build your confidence, but if someone who has such a low-level of self-esteem as I do can look at my makes and feel proud, then anyone can. Creativity should be encouraged, regardless of whether you are a child or you are in your eighties.

Is there anything you’ve made which you regard as your most favourite thing of all time?   If so … what is it, and who did you make it for?

The favourite thing that I have made so far is the photo stitch of my Nan and Granddad. If there is anybody in life that I wish to emulate, it is them, and I hope that the stitch is a fitting tribute to them.

Another difficult question that I would hate to be asked:  What would you say is the thing in your craft area/room that you just couldn’t live without?

That’s a hard one!  I would probably have to say my magnifier and lamp, as it helps me to craft for longer when the winter nights draw in.

We live in a big, instant, ‘buy it now’,  mass-produced society,  where everything is exactly the same as the one that just went through the till;  –  on a ‘buy it now’ offer, or a simple ‘one click to purchase’ situation.  So having said that:  —  Why should people continue to buy one-of-a-kind, hand-made products rather than one of millions which have been all made to look the same, from high street chain stores?

People should buy hand-made purely because it is, if not unique, at the very least rare. We are always persuaded to buy the labels, to conform, when we should all strive to be what we are, individuals, every one of us unique.

Tell me about your blog, Emma.  http://theintrovertedcrafter.blogspot.co.uk/

My blog is a dual purpose.  As I have said, I suffer from depression so crafting and writing a blog is a kind of therapy for me, and I hope will encourage others as well.

Depression, as well as other mental illnesses, is still shoved under the carpet almost as if it is a shameful thing.   More people suffer in silence than should,  and I hope that by being open,  even when I have my bad days,  it gives people some kind of hope that there are others out there who understand how they feel. 

The crafting side of my blog is that I’m fighting my low self-esteem and fear by putting my work out there for others to see.

What is your (non crafting) guilty pleasure?

I have two non crafting pleasures.  I met my favourite boy band this year,  and I also love Disney.  I’m heading to WDW this year.  Basically, I’m a big kid!

(ermm…. Emma, is any chance that your suitcase is big enough to accomodate me?)

Other than crafting …  what is your favourite thing to do?

Other than crafting I love writing. I’ve always had little bits and pieces in my head that I have never fully developed, so it was a real accomplishment when I finished writing a book this year. I still have to get over the fear of sending it to a publisher though!

Last words? 

Hmmm, last words?    Spifflymuglicate!  

Yes this is a made up word, and one that has been in my family for a long time, as my Granddad,  and his Dad before him,  used it when they were play fighting with their grandchildren.  I choose Spifflymuglicate  both to honour my Grandparents, and to remind us all that,  regardless of our age,   we need to stay young at heart!

 

Emma …  thank you so much for agreeing to this interview.  I know that it took you completely out of your comfort zone  –  but, for me,  it’s been a massively enjoyable experience and I’ve absolutely loved every minute of it.  I hope you didn’t find it too discomforting,  and I also hope that it increases traffic to your blog, so that you find the much needed encouragement from other crafters to keep going with your crafting. 

I believe in you Emma.   We all had to start somewhere.  None of us began crafting as experts.  We all began in similar ways to the way you started.  Something made us want to make something,  and from that first ‘something’,  we kept going and got better with each project.  We are all still learning.  Every day turns up a new experience.  A new technique.  A new joy.  And so it will be for you too.

Thank you Emma,  this has been an absolute, 100% bundle of fun.  –  Love  ~ Cobs. x

To my blog readers:

Thank you  so  much  for visiting and staying for a while.   I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this interview as much as I did doing it.

An Element of Fire ~ a handmade Wand, bejeweled with crystals and gems.

 

An Element of Fire Wand made by Cobwebs

An Element of Fire Wand
made by Cobwebs

No matter how many photographs I took,  where I took the photographs or what backgrounds I tried it against, I couldn’t seem to capture the real essence of this beautiful wand at all.  So although the pictures are OK – they’re not the best that they could be. (apologies.  – I’m great at ‘making’, but I pose absolutely no threat to David Bailey).

Where I live I have some huuuuge pine trees in my garden which are protected (by law).  So it makes sense to use the wood which these trees gift to me by way of high winds etc. 

The base which this wand is made from is beautiful pine, which was seasoned naturally and turned from a small broken branch, into a fabulously straight length of  pine wood by a friend  – who doesn’t use machinery (wood lathes and such) everything he does is done the good old-fashioned way – which I love.

Measuring  14½”  (or 37cm) from the tip to the heel of the wands handleBut not heavy.  I know in the photographs it looks like it would be an arm breaker – but it really is very light – weighing just 60 grams – (or 2 ounces in good old-fashioned money).  Every time I pick it up it still surprises even me – and I worked with/on it for weeks!

I knew that I wanted to base the wands handle around the Element of Fire, so began working by choosing my colours of clay.  Obviously in shades of reds and yellows –  both to represent the heat and the colour of flames,  – and,  because I wanted fiery flames to lick up and along the wand, I had to blend the colours carefully so that they didn’t become muddy – but blended together just as real flames do.

An Element of Fire Wand 2

I also added green oak leaves.  This was because I wanted to:

  • To represent a new beginning; a fresh start;  new life; and the seasons;
  • To honour the Green Man who’s wisdom is of the eternal truths, cycles and passages.  The cycle of birth, growth, death and rebirth.  He teaches us the sacred truths of nature.  He is a magical bridge between nature and ourselves.  From the Green Man we learn the mysteries of all growing things, and he is present in all things green and growing.  His energy fills the trees which make the oxygen we breathe.
  • To acknowledge the mystic energy of nature and vegetation;
  • And also to give a nod to the Land of the Fae.  Since the colour green is a faerie colour, I believe they (the Fae) share an affinity with the Green Man, and here in the British Isles faeries are also known as ‘Greenies’ or ‘Greencoats’.

As I fashioned,  I became aware of a growing desire to include gems and crystals of significance, so had to ensure that I took care to place these in just the right places so that the stones didn’t interfere with the comfortable holding of the wand in the hand.

Once the wand and it’s handle had gone through its various own ‘fires‘ (of the making variety) – I polished the handle to a lovely smooth finish and added some very tiny glass beads and an assortment of crystals, fixing them along the curves and folds of the flames along the handle –  which helped to represent that ‘sparking, sparkling, crackling’ which a true fire has.

An Element of Fire Wand 5

I then tipped the wand with gold leaf.  It doesn’t want to show up in the photographs – despite me trying a gazillion photographs [sigh] – so you’ll have to imagine that the very point of the wand is tipped in gold leaf which has a fabulous shine and depth.

Finally – I sat for a while and selected what I felt where the right gem stones to add to this wand. I wanted the colours I was choosing to have a specific meaning and also wanted the gem stones themselves to be chosen for the meaning they held, for the many and varied reasons from feng shui through celtic, wiccan, spiritual healing lore, philosophers and mystics all the way to a gentleman called George Frederick Kunz – (who wrote the book  The Curious Lore of Precious Stones published in 1913).  Kunz wasn’t a mystic crystal-gazer but rather the leading gemologists of his time and the resident gem expert at Tiffany & Co.

Finding the right mix of gemstones and colours was a balancing act – I wanted to get the mix just right.  When I was finally happy with my choice, I had:  Carnelian.  Yellow Jade,  Black Onyx,  milky green Malachite,  Amethyst and Citrine, sat on my work bench, waiting for me to begin work.

The colours symbolize:

  • Yellow = Wisdom, Joy, Happiness
  • Black = Self Control & Resilience.  Black stones have protective healing energies.
  • Green = Life, nature, fertility,  self-respect & well-being.  Green contains the powerful energies of nature.
  • Purple = Royalty, magic and mystery.  The colour of good judgement & of people seeking spiritual fulfilment.  Purple is a good colour to use in meditation.
  • White =  White is purity and cleanliness and the complete energy of light.  It stands for wholeness and completion.

Carnelian was chosen because:  (amongst many reasons:) Carnelian is associated with the element of fire and it has a projective energy that balances all forces.  Carnelian holds a very special place in the Christian religion.  According to holy scriptures, carnelian was one of the twelve gemstones worn on the breastplate of Aaron, the first high priest of the Israelites and a prophet.

Yellow Jade was chosen because:  Jade is said to bless whatever it touches, serving mankind across the globe for nearly 6,000 years, and valued for its beauty and powers of healing and protection.  It is the ultimate “Dream Stone,” revered in ancient cultures, as well as today, to access the spiritual world, gain insight into ritualistic knowledge, encourage creativity, and dream-solve.  Jade signifies wisdom gathered in tranquility, dispelling the negative and is the stone of calm in the midst of storm.

Black Onyx was chosen because: it is said to have protective properties and to bring inner strength, self-confidence aid intuition and help with mental discipline,  It’s  believed to help to release negative emotions and alleviate fear and anxiety.  Some cultures believe it to be unlucky, however others consider it to be virtuous and to protect against black magic.

Malachite was chosen because:  it is a protection stone, absorbing negative energies, and shows what is blocking your spiritual growth, draws out deep feelings and psychosomatic causes, then allows you to break unwanted ties and outworn patterns.  It supports friendships and empathy for other people.  NB: Malachite is toxic and should be used only in its polished form

Amethyst was chosen because:  it is known as a stone of protection.  Amethyst is a gemstone often worn by healers, as it has the power to focus energy, and it has long been used to open the spiritual and psychic centers, making it one of the power stones.  It’s also known as the Bishop’s Stone and is still worn by Catholic Bishops. The amethyst symbolizes piety, humility, sincerity and spiritual wisdom.

Citrine was chosen because:  Citrine is a joyful stone with bright energy which lights up many aspects of lives of those who work with it. It has energies of good fortune and good luck, though these may appear in unexpected ways..  It’s known as the ‘success stone’, since it is believed to promote prosperity and abundance, and because citrine can clear negative energy and influences from the aura, it is useful for meditation, psychic awareness, and spiritual development.    Citrine is one of the most valuable and popular gemstones in the quartz groupCitrine also does not absorb any negative energies from its surroundings, and thus never needs energetic clearing..

Angel Dust encased in glass, suspended from Angel Wings

Crafted by Cobwebs

Crafted by Cobwebs

All hand-made, in a particular mix of polymers which I like to use.  No moulds were used to make this pin/pendant.   All the feathers you see are all hand-made, no two are the same,  and each one applied individually by hand.  There is, however, one golden, metal feather nestled amongst all the other feathers.  Can you spot it?

Suspended beneath the Angel wings is a glass phial which holds a measured amount of Angel Dust.  The lid was applied and then sealed, never to be opened, so that the Angel Dust will be with you forever.   Finally, three more feathers were applied to the glass phial, each feather symbolizing Charity,  Hope  and  Faith.

I loved making this pin/pendant and now that it’s finished I love it even more.  Hope you like it too.

Thank you so much for coming to visit, and for taking the time to read.  While you’re here, please do have a look around.  There are many categories on my blog and you can find the links to those categories further up the column on the right hand side of this page.   →  →  →

Fairy Shoes ~ Pollens Pods – inspired by a Bumble Bee.

... because even a Fairy has to have shoes! These are Pollens Pods.

… because even a Fairy has to have shoes!
These are Pollens Pods.

 

Pollen the Fairy has a very important job in the Land of the Fae, and that job is to dust down the flowers after the Bumbles have paid a visit.  You see, Bumble Bees can be very messy sometimes and in their desire to collect pollen from flowers, they will occasionally get a little over greedy and splosh tiny specks of pollen all over the flowers and their petals!  So Pollen the Fairy was put on the job and he dusts down the flowers with a very special brush, made from the hair of the Fairy Princess.  (what?  you thought that a bristle brush would do the job?  tsk tsk)

But .. Pollen needed new shoes and so wanted Cobweb the Cobbler to make some which had a nod to the important flower dusting job.  Cobweb thought long and hard about this and eventually came up with ‘Pods’.  The cobbler took some pea pods, and fashioned them into the right shape and correct size, but felt they were the wrong colour.

So the cobbler asked a passing Kingfisher bird  if he would be willing to gift one of his beautiful blue feathers to the cobbler.   The Kingfisher obliged!  – and Cobweb then went to town and, using the feather donated by the Kingfisher,  painted the pea pod made shoes!

Slowly, as the cobbler painted  –  the bright blue colour of the feather began to seep into the green of the pea pod made fairy shoe and dyed it the incredible bright blue colour you see in the photographs!

But … that wasn’t enough!   A fairy wouldn’t just have plain blue shoes for hecks sake!  No fairy would want just a boring plain shoe!  Nooooo.   Fairies  have  to have something special.  And that’s where the magic began.

... the front and back, and the back and front!

… the front and back, and the back and front!

These fairy shoes are covered in the pollen of all the different coloured flowers which the Bumbles like to visit,  and the vines which wind their way around the shoes are there to gently hug the ankles of the fairy wearer so that the shoes don’t fall off in mid-flight,  for that would be disastrous!

A comment made by another blogger made me realise that I’d hadn’t shown any of the boxes which the Fairy Shoes arrive in,  so I thought that perhaps I should include these boxes in the photographs from now on.   So the first photograph (at the top of this post) and the last one (below) show the top (and sides)  of  the hand painted and decorated box which Cobweb the Cobbler delivers the special Fairy Shoes in.

The other box in the background?  …..  Ohhhhh … well you’ll have to wait till next time in order to see the shoes which belong to that box!  😉

Tiny White Angel Feathers – make a most beautiful handmade wand.

The photograph above doesn’t show   the daintiness:  the apparent delicacy or the true beauty of this little handmade wand.  To see how intricate this really is you need to see it with the human eye,  however,  I’ve managed to capture a little of the details by taking a ‘closer up’ photograph which helps to show a little more of the adornments. and the fineness,  both in the appearance and the work which went into making this incredible little work of heart.

Close up of the Angel Feathers Wand

Close up of the Angel Feathers Wand

The wooden part of the wand is made from gifted pine wood, which was crafted by hand, by a wood worker,  into a short, beautiful, almost straight length, just right for what I had in my minds eye.  Pine was chosen for this wand because it offers the properties of protection, healing, rejuvenation, strength, life, purification and … a wonderful added bonus .. it attracts money!  (and I don’t think I know anyone who couldn’t do with a little more of that!)

The handle of the wand was crafted   Made entirely of individual, handmade white Angel Feathers.  Each one is completely different from any other.  [No mould was used in the making of the feathers].  As each feather was made it was transferred to the wand and slowly but surely the handle was born.  Gold dust was then applied, with a very fine paint brush, to the tips of all the feathers, in order to give them their own glowing light.

At the head of the handle  is a large white pearl, and further pearls can be found dotted throughout the handle, tucked between, or peeping out from beneath various feathers.  There are then more pearls which are hung from tiny silver loops hidden within the folds of the feathers, and further tear-drop pearls which hang from little gold chains.

Pearls were chosen for this incredibly special wand both because of their association with the moon, and also because of their symbolism of purity, innocence, faith and honesty.

There are also Opals hung from the handle – a beautiful gemstone, chosen because it’s a stone of inspiration which enhances imagination and creativity.  A protective stone;  a stone for love;  and associated with peace, and consciousness.

In various places on the wand handle there are literally hundreds of the tiniest golden glass beads – which give the appearance of something bubbling forth from beneath the feathers – and the ‘something’ I envisioned that this represented,  was love.

The whole wand symbolises love, happiness, warmth, and joy – and in keeping with the traditions of wand making, the wand was blessed and charged,  before being passed to its destiny owner.

Thank you so much for coming to read.  I really loved making this wonderful little wand and am proud to be known as its maker.  I so hope you like it too.

Have a beautiful day ~
