A place for the eclectic seeker...

It's been a journey to get here, but to make a long story short: I've always been an artist and a witch for probably just as long, because I've come to see them as one in the same. My hope with FWD is to bring tools and inspiration to fellow seekers, outcasts, and oddballs at the crossroads of different worlds.

I'd like to take a second to lay out the core ethos of this business:

1. RESPECT FOR NATURE:
- Eliminating plastic as much as possible. This means I don't use plastic in my packaging, unless it's something I am reusing (I'll sometimes use bubble wrap from something I ordered online). The exceptions to this rule are 1. my sticker packaging, because they are printed and packaged by a partner company, so I have no control over their packaging, and 2. I occasionally use packing tape for larger orders out of necessity.
- Using ethically sourced bones and leather for my jewelry. A lot of my materials are scavenged by yours truly, re-purposed (the leather I use comes mostly from old jackets from Goodwill and scraps from a furniture company), or found by friends.

2. RESPECT FOR CULTURE:
- Harboring reverence for the symbols I use and the deities, myths, and ancient texts I reference. Magick, religion, and the language of symbols are not to be taken lightly or used without proper research.
- Cultural sharing and honoring over cultural appropriation. I'm a white American of Norse and Anglo Saxon heritage who's heavily influenced by Taoism and Buddhism philosophically and gets a lot of inspiration from Indian, West African, Latin American, Native American, Chinese, and Russian art. I have great respect for these varied cultures and when I do include references to any of them, I do so with as much knowledge as I can gain from my own research and from being exposed to these cultures via friends and family. I do my very best to educate myself, acknowledge my privilege, and give what resources and time I can to communities that suffer under systems of imperialism, colonization, and white supremacy that I ultimately benefit from (at least financially... nobody benefits spiritually).

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT:
I'd like to acknowledge that the land I live on in Austin, TX belongs to the traditional territory of a number of Indigenous peoples–– specifically the Apache, the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas, the Kickapoo Tribe of Texas, the Ysleta del sur Pueblo, the Lipan Apache Tribe, the Texas Band of Yaqui Indians, and the Coahuitlecan. Additionally, Texas is and has been home to the Caddo, Comanche, Kiowa, Wichita, Chickasaw, and Waco nations. I firmly believe that the land and world would be better off if these people had stayed in "control" of this land and continued treating it with the respect it deserves, as they did for thousands of years.

    I love being able to put designs into the world that speak to those who seek fresh water outside the mainstream. I believe our adornments should hold magick and meaning, and put intention into every creation.
