Authentic Old European Master Crafted Magical Arts™
WITCHCRAFTS ARTISAN ALCHEMY® is a small one-person home-based shoppe offering a large array of artisan witch wares master crafted in the full spirit of authentic traditional Old European Celtic-Germanic Witchcraft touched with Appalachian, Jewish and Slavic folk magic.
Ancestor work is a large part of my personal spiritual practice as a Witch. My primary genetic ancestral roots are Celtic-Germanic Northern & Northwestern European (with my deep genetic ancestral root localizing to Sweden). By both DNA analysis and oral family tradition, my ancestors hail from Austria, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary (including Budapest Jewry), Ireland, Norway, Romania, Scotland, Slovakia, Sweden, Ukraine and Wales. My most recent ethnic roots are English, Irish and German.
Born with magical awareness (see my profile) and mystically initiated as a small child, both my ancestral genetic motherline and fatherline are part of the ancient populations archeologist Marija Gimbutas called "Old Europe", with my old world genetic roots reaching deeply into the ancient mysteries of Europe's enchanted Black Forest, the magical Danube River Valley Civilization, the old ways of the animistic Native European Shamans (as immortalized in ancient graphically symbolic cave art paintings), and prehistoric Paleolithic Europe. Both my ancestral genetic motherline and fatherline are Cro-Magnon lineages.
A daughter of Clan Ursula, my ancestral genetic U5b1b1-T16192C! motherline is the foundational lineage of the Saami (the indigenous reindeer-herding population of northern Scandinavia). The U5 ancestral clade is the oldest extant indigenous European motherline among modern humans and the dominant maternal lineage among Paleolithic and Mesolithic European hunter-gatherers.
A daughter of Clan Wodan (the only pre-Neolithic Y-lineage left in Europe), my paternal ancestral I-M223 (I2b1) genetic fatherline is also indigenous to Europe (arising in Ice Age Doggerland which became submerged under the North Sea) and is a Northern Germanic-Fennoscandian Anglo-Saxon Viking fatherline.
A daughter of the Clan of the Cave Lioness, the Old European cave lioness (Panthera leo spelaea) of prehistoric Europe is my ancestral clan totem (as evidenced by the 40,000 year old Löwenfrau lioness-woman mammoth ivory figurine of Germany's Hohlenstein Stadel) and my own shamanic journey guide. The largest of the wild cats ever known to walk the earth, revered by prehistoric Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal humankinds, images of the great wild huntress, the European cave lioness, adorn the walls of the renowned Chauvet Cave in France. During the Pleistocene, cave lions were among the most abundant and feared predators of prehistoric Europe. The great lioness hunts expertly for her pride, making her the epitome of "the wild huntress" archetype (as is my shamanic patroness, ancient ancestral goddess Abnoba of Europe's enchanted Black Forest). Felines are the most proficient and successful hunters of the animal kingdom, boldly embodying fearlessness, the power of silence and patience, warrior stealth, courage, ferocity, focus, nobility, integrity, leadership, skill and dominion. As am I, solar symbol cats are themselves nocturnal, cloaked in and moving with the lunar energy of the night moon - unifying within ourselves both the masculine and feminine mysteries into a complete wholeness of spirit.
Both my maternal and paternal families have American roots deep in Kentucky - my paternal family hails specifically from the Cumberland Gap in the Appalachian mountains where old ancestral ways still flourish among the mountain folk.
By genetic analysis, I am 1.9% Neanderthal and 2.3% Denisovan (archaic human species coexisting with Homo sapiens sapiens in ancient Europe and Asia for at least 10,000 years).
Of scientifically proven authentic Old World European genetic ancestry, my spiritual essence and artisan heritage flow from an esteemed bloodline of Old English chandlers (which includes Josiah Franklin, the father of American founding father, Grand Master Mason Benjamin Franklin).
As a Witch, this ancestral knowledge and heritage provides me with a powerful conscious link to my Mighty Ancestors (the Master Witches of my People) and the Sacred Powers of Ancestral Tradition.
Created in harmony with honored sacred cycles of old ways ancestral tradition, with extra attention to detail, and within the context of sacred ritual craftworking, every handcrafted item at WITCHCRAFTS ARTISAN ALCHEMY® reverberates with magical energy and potency. Handcrafts are each master crafted with empowered tydor by the Lori, the witch of WITCHCRAFTS ARTISAN ALCHEMY® and are not mass or employee produced. Magical quality, not volume sales, drives the spirit of WITCHCRAFTS ARTISAN ALCHEMY®.
At WITCHCRAFTS ARTISAN ALCHEMY® I strive to practice the Craft with integrity and to pass the energy of this integrity on to you, my friends and clients, through the lovely offerings purchased from my shoppe. Blessed be you through the practice of ethical Witchcraft, by the spirits of the Land upon which you live, and by the collective Folksoul(s) of the Lands from which your unique soul derives.
Dare to be true to yourself.

Lori, the Witch of WITCHCRAFTS ARTISAN ALCHEMY®

Candle and Herb Safety
NEVER LEAVE A BURNING CANDLE UNATTENDED. Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets. Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents. Keep candle wicks trimmed to 1/4" (paraffin) or 1/8" (soy) before each use to keep candles burning correctly. Take special care when burning candles with herbs, resins or other adornments, as these things may catch fire. Remove these things before lighting. WITCHCRAFTS ARTISAN ALCHEMY® and The National Candle Association urge consumers to follow these additional rules for candle and herb safety - http://www.witchcraftsartisanalchemy.com/candle-herb-safety/
