About

Welcome! I've always been interested in creative ventures, and crafting items. I have been designing jewelry and sewing for 15 years. I've been interested in photography for a number of years, as well. I always enjoy tapping into the creative parts of my brain, making something from nothing, seeing a project through, the feeling of accomplishment, the pride of someone enjoying my work. I enjoy sharing my love of nature and animals, mythology, new designs, and techniques, Faerie, mermaids, and unique items to connect us.

I often use beading and sewing as a form of meditation. Being aware, present, and breathing keeps the creative juices flowing. I quite literally infuse each product with good vibes and thoughts this way. I hope you can feel them when you browse my shop, or purchase an item!
I enjoy designing necklaces, bracelets, barefoot sandals, anklets, belly chains,…

I enjoy designing necklaces, bracelets, barefoot sandals, anklets, belly chains, earrings, headpieces, and slave bracelets with various materials.
Much time and consideration is spent choosing the 'right' beads for each combination. I also sometimes look to the women of world mythology, Faerie, folklore to guide my creations, or let nature inspire me. I also regularly utilize motifs from many other spiritual traditions. I also incorporate the metaphysical meanings of the gemstones, and share those insights with you. There is always deep meaning behind my choices. Even the color associations of beads are considered. For these reasons, I consider myself a sacred designer.
I also enjoy photography, as it demands patience in nature, and with yourself. It also creates a mindfulness and presence that might otherwise be lost in the fast-paced modern society. I enjoy photographing water themes most of all. It creates a stillness, even when the water is rushing by.
Various civilizations link the Moon with women. There are obvious connections, and the phases symbolizing the journey from young girl to wise woman. The Moon is a receptive and gentle female energy. I wanted to incorporate some aspect of this influence into my business name. I also am deeply intrigued by Indian culture, and am learning the Hindi language. Therefore, I chose the Hindi word, 'Chandini,' which means, 'of the moon.'
***Brightest blessings to you and yours***

Thank you for taking the time to look! Namaste
