Diva by DeathMystery
This amulet's other name was "The Secret", because I've imagined a dancing lady sharing her joy and happiness with her watchers via the magical dance, while crafting this piece.

I really love this piece and the way it turned out. Firstly because I'm continuing my experiments with techniques and textures and I've never seen a combination of leather and beadwork like this. Maybe there is some, I don't know. So that's a completely new design for me. And secondly because of the materials. Yeah, this stone is a natural color changer.

Materials: ammolite cabochon, Toho and Miyuki seed beads, leather, waxed cord, metallic parts, garnet bead.

My friend asked me to create something MLP-themed for her to wear to the bronicons etc. Her favorite character is Lightning Dust, this pony. I've tried to create something similar to this magic character and even matched the rope's pattern her cutie mark.

Materials: labradorite cabochon, Fimo polymer clay, Toho seed beads, metallic parts, leather.

Long time ago, the elven Goddess of Nature created the magic potion of Life. A single drop of this essence of the eternal summer fell down from heaven to the earth.

This necklace is a "sister" of the Mirror of Wisdom, listed among the thumbs below.

Materials: labradorite cabochon, citrine cubes, Fimo polymer clay, Toho seed beads, metallic parts, tiger eye bead, leather.

As a true Star Trek fan I just couldn't resist creating this one. And as you might have guessed, I'm on the baddies' side. :P

The pendant isn't painted, by the way. It's polyclay mosaic. And yeah, it's glowing in the dark.

Materials: Fimo polymer clay, quartz beads, waxed cord, metallic parts, Toho seed beads.

I was inspired by the mystic fern flower, that was very popular in the Slavic mythology. That's why I've decided to create something similar.

I'm selling this necklace because I had an argument with a person this one was made for. That's not very common I'm selling my crafts here.

 Thank you everyone, this necklace is sold now. :)

The cord is 51 - 59 cm long (with or without the chain). You can take it off and use another cord if you like. You can move the cords around the way you like to, they are all very flexible. The pendant is 6,5 - 16 cm long (with or without fringe). The ocean jasper used for this necklace is a pretty interesting stone on it's own - it glows under the UV light, like this. I haven't tried this out with this cabochon used for the Fern, because I've got no UV lamp. Theoretically it should work, but I can't promise you! :D

Materials: ocean jasper cabochon, leather; prenite, tiger eye and labradorite splitters, wooden beads, metallic parts, wax cord, Toho seed beads.
Moonberry by DeathMystery
I was inspired by the stone's pattern while creating this necklace. It reminds me of the blueberries and the moon phases at the same time. That's why I've imagined some mystical berries which ripen in the moon light only. This necklace is a "sister" of the Witchberry, linked below.

Materials: "moon" labradorite cabochon, wooden beads, Toho seed beads, metallic parts, leather, Fimo polymer clay.

Long time ago a fallen star grew up as a beautiful flower.

You can see a 6-rays star in the cabochon if you hold it under the pen light. Was quite tough to take a photo of though. And yeah, I don't know about your monitor settings, but the light violet seed beads are actually violet and not pink. ^^

Materials: star ruby cabochon, Fimo polymer clay, Toho seed beads, metallic parts, fluorite beads, amethyst chips.

Frozen by DeathMystery
I was inspired by Disney's Frozen while crafting this necklace. The moment when Elsa was creating her frozen palace and the dark night was turning into hundreds colors of blue fascinated me. And of course the aquamarine stone reminds me of a piece of ice.

Materials: aquamarine cabochon, black onyx and fluorite beads, Toho seed beads, metallic parts, leather.

Finnish Spectrolites

The majority of my watchers voted for the educating journals and so be it. :D I've got loads of unusual stones in my collection and I've got some information about them I might share with you.

Do you guys know what I do love Finland for? Well, except the fact that our cherished traditional art CV Agaave comes from Finland. Giggle  The answer is simple - Finnish spectrolites. As you all might have guessed, I'm a big fan of labradorites. And those colorful babies are the rarest and most expensive labradorite sort you may find in the whole world. The main spectrolite deposit is located in Ylämaa in south-eastern Finland. But don't ask me how to pronounce that, as I've got no clue. :D Maybe some Finnish speaker would bring the enlightenment?

You may easily distinguish a spectrolite from any common labradorite. Spectrolites have got...

  1. Very bright, shiny, neon, vibrant color combinations. Labradorites are much more poor on colors and especially on color combinations.
  2. Spectrolites ain't translucent when you hold them against the sun light, flame , lamp or whatever. They are mostly very dark, nearly to black rocks. Some thin slabs may shine through, but those slabs have to be really thin.
  3. Spectrolites got some sort of the cat eye effect. They've got the angle when you see the black surface with a "cat eye" on it. I fear it's not easy to describe- just take a look at my videos in the end of the journal post.
And, of course, the price. Those minerals ain't easy to find and especially to get. A spectrolite cabochon may cost aroung 50-200$ and it's their ordinary price. They ain't cheap by all means.

Well, I'll add some words to my collection. The stones shown as thumbs are all mine. (My precioussssss!...) I'll use some of them for my crafts as well. I'm planning to let go some of them as I don't need tons of them. The 1st spectrolite I've used for crafts is this one. I've given it away as a Christmas gift for a bud of mine:

Azure Nebula by DeathMystery

I've got a fun story to tell about this pair of spectrolites. A friend of mine called them "anti-greed pills". It refers to an old Russian joke: "Doctor, I need some anti-greed pills! And more, MORE of them!!" Well, once you've seen a Finnish spectrolite for the 1st time, you can't get enough of them.

Artist | Hobbyist | Artisan Crafts
I am a hobbyist artisan crafter, which means, making stuff isn't my primary profession. It's a hobby. The jewellery I'm producing is made for myself or for my buds. I might take a commission from time to time, but not very often. And nope, I do not have an etsy store. And none is planned. :)

I am collecting the rarest and the most unusual stones I could get into my greedy fingers. Would you like me to share the backstage of the crafting process? The WIP photos, the craft supplies such as cabochons, beads? 

95 deviants said I'm a silent reader but I'd love to read the journals.
61 deviants said Yes, I'd appreciate it and I'd like to have a chat with you to learn you better.
3 deviants said I'm not very interested in the backstage or minerals.
No deviants said Other. Please tell me what you think about the idea if you have something to add.
