To Stir a Bubbling Cauldron...

In Celtic myth the cauldron regularly appears as a magical object, often associated with inspiration and creativity. My shop began with crafts particularly suited to the cauldron image - melting and pouring soap and candles; the melting metaphor continues with my passion for soldering stained-glass art.

My goal is to offer simple, affordable, handmade items for everyone; my product themes typically favor nature, mythology, spirituality, and those that that can be categorized as New Age, Wiccan, or metaphysical.

This is a small store, but I try to add new items on a regular basis. Right now I offer made-to-order decorative aromatherapy soap, greeting cards, jewelry, clay art, and stained glass art. This store is my outlet for indulging in my favorite creative hobbies. Everything is handmade. You can also purchase some of my books here.

Thanks for visiting - come back soon!
Blessed Be!

Shipping

Shipping costs are calculated by item weight, packaging size, and customer location. Every effort has been made to accommodate for ordering of multiple items to determine the most economical package. Please remember that costs are calculated based on predetermined settings in the store; manual adjustments will be made if necessary and any amount that exceeds the actual cost at the post office will be refunded.* The handling fee is in place to help defer the cost of packing materials (such as bubble mailers).

I am only able to ship within the U.S. at this time.

I often use plastic packaging—for the health of our planet, please dispose of it properly or recycle. I re-use packing material whenever possible. For example, I recently moved and I'm re-using all the bubble wrap I used to pack my wine glasses. :) If your item is wrapped in orange bubble wrap, that's why!


*If the overage is more than $2.

Additional policies and FAQs

Please remember all items are individually handmade so slight variations in shape or color could occur.

Greeting Cards & Jewelry: If you're wondering about card pricing, this is based on a variety of things: card size, type of paper(s) and ink used, and labor. Cards that cost more are often ones that take more time to create or are made with more expensive materials. This is why two different card sets that contain the same size and number of cards may be slightly different in price. This applies to jewelry as well - some stones are simply more expensive than others.

Soap: Since soaps are made to order, the size and weight varies depending on customer choice. Therefore, for shipping purposes, cost is calculated based on an aveage weight and size. The reason there's only 1 quantity listed for each type is because each bar is made to the customer's specifications. If you'd like to order more than one of a specific scent/shape, just send me a message. Also, regarding pricing, if a particular scent is priced a little higher than others, it's due to the cost of the oils.

Stained Glass: Prices are based on a combination of average cost of basic supplies, labor hours, specific type of glass used, and the overall size of the finished piece. Please keep in mind that glass isn't perfect and that pieces may contain lines and bubbles that are part of the glass and not to be considered a defect. However, if your piece arrives broken or damaged in any way, please let me know. These pieces are made with solder containing lead, so please wash your hands after handling (and be aware there could be some sharp edges, even though I do my best to ensure a smooth surface). Stained glass can be cleaned with simple dish soap and water (or glass cleaner); solder color may darken over time but can be polished.

Due to an increase in price from the supplier I will no longer be including suction cup hangers with sun catchers. Also, please be aware that a suction cup may not be a sufficient hanger in all cases - you may wish to simply use a ribbon and tie the piece to a curtain rod or other hanger. Personal note: I've had suction cups on windows that have remained in place for years without incident; I've had others that have fallen. Be aware of where the piece will land if the suction cup fails, and take appropriate precautions.

If you notice a price increase from similar items sold in the past, it could be that the specific materials used are different and simply cost more. In addition, the price of supplies and packaging sometimes increases over the years. This could be the reason for a dollar or two price increase overall. For example, recently the price of solder has increased substantially so I’ve unfortunately had to raise prices just a bit. But I’m also offering more coupons and special offers: visit the store’s Facebook page for announcements.

Looking for something specific?
Did one of your favorite items disappear, but isn't showing as sold? I often make in-person sales, so this could be the reason. Please contact me if an item you wanted is no longer available and I may be able to make another one.

Also, please feel free to inquire about custom pieces.
