CM Devi's Profile

About

My name is Chandra Myshka Devi (but you can call me "Mouse") & I'm a dreamer, soul-searcher, traveller, and a wanderer... bohemian dreadie faerie with a dark side... a curious & contrary fiber artist who sells one of a kind handspun knitted accessories to like minded faery folk... When I'm not knitting or spinning I love to hang out with my husband, son, and two crazy cats in our North Georgia home. I also love to cook, bake bread, and hula hoop (though not at the same time!)

My inspiration comes from the way I see the world… almost as a traveller from another time who was dropped into this one. I find old things and old ways comforting to my soul. I feel a strong connection to the travelling people of my ancestry who moved from town to town selling their wares from the back of their wagons. It's for these reasons that I came to name my business- summoning the imagery of…

My inspiration comes from the way I see the world… almost as a traveller from another time who was dropped into this one. I find old things and old ways comforting to my soul. I feel a strong connection to the travelling people of my ancestry who moved from town to town selling their wares from the back of their wagons. It's for these reasons that I came to name my business- summoning the imagery of Romani Vardos (the traditional round topped horse drawn caravan) as it is part of my history and bloodline as well as describing the nomadic, “nowhere and everywhere”, multi-cultural and tribal aspect of my work and my personality.

The pieces I create are one of a kind as my work is constantly changing and evolving with my influences, experiences, and interests as I continue on my journey.

I can also be found at my blog:
mousiemasala.tumblr.com where I collect beautiful images that serve as an inspiration for my creations.

I'm crazy about faeries, Mori girls, elves & forest dwelling folk, dreads, mehendi, body modification, modern tribalism, Hindu deities, caravans, tiny houses, vardos, PURPLE, Buddhism, Bollywood movies, Sanatana Dharma, goth music & culture, Paganism, tribal bellydance, yoga, all things India, the Victorian era, Steampunk, Silent film stars, Labyrinth, The Crow, striped socks, and shiny things.
