Found a chain to put this pendant on, so I thought I’d continue to show off artistic-annihilation's wirework. I would show you the pendulum's wirework, but it's so excitable, and a bit stubborn! I can barely get it to stay still.
The pendant looks great on you! :D I hope the pendulum’s not to stubborn though. xD
AHHHHH I’M SO HAPPY YOU LOVE THEM. <3
I took the glamour shots especially for you. No bed shots for these pieces of art.
Also, bonus, when my dad saw them he went “Wow, this is a talented person.”
=^o^= thanks so awesome! Tell him I say thank you! <3
artistic-annihilation I got a package. I wonder who it’s from!!!
(Also dang this got here fast.)
yeah it. did. @.@ holy crap. I mailed that out monday! xD
Obviously, USPS is a superior mailing system.
I’m so excited to open it……eeee
I’m so excited too! ahhhhhhh I hope you love it! <3
Just a reminder…
That Gaia isn’t just some fluffy mother nature goddess. Like have you even seen natural disasters? And don’t even get me started on how fiercely protective she is of her kids. Like she will literally destroy you if you fuck with ANY of them.
Gaia is a bad ass mother fucker don’t you lie to me.
The truth has been spoken. Everyone go home.
This actually is my picture and this item is for sale in my etsy shop- The Magical Emporium
^ this is why I hate when people put links to their blogs on all posts. It’s obnoxious and incredibly disrespectful, especially if you’re removing captions to do it.
Like, I’d be less mad and pissed off if they had at least left my original text to the post. But they erased everything. :(

Taking Care of Your Crystals
It’s important to cleanse new crystals and stones as you obtain them. Cleansing removes the energy that crystals naturally pick up along the way before reaching you. This better attunes them to your personal health and well-being, which makes them more useful for metaphysical and healing purposes. It’s also important to cleanse crystals after they’ve been used for meditation, stress relief, healing, emotional distress, and so on.
Methods for Cleansing Crystals
A very common method for cleansing and charging crystals is placing them in sunlight or moonlight for a set amount of time. Moonlight is generally the more gentle option, as sunlight can cause discoloring and fading in many types of crystals. This includes amethyst, turquoise, fluorite, rose quartz, opal, ametrine, aquamarine, celestite, prasiolite, kunzite, danburite, and dyed stones. Exposure to sunlight for these crystals should be kept to a minimum, ideally in indirect sunlight.
Water is another common method for cleansing. Cool water should always be used, never warm or hot. Tap water is fine, though many people prefer to use pure spring water. Rain water, moon water and salt water may also be used. A gentle rinsing is best. Submerging crystals in water should be avoided unless it’s a hard mineral.
Soft or porous minerals can be damaged or destroyed from water exposure, especially from salt water. Some examples are hematite, selenite, malachite, lapis lazuli, calcite, and halite. Click here for a chart that displays the Mohs’ Hardness for common minerals. Anything below 6.0 on the Mohs’ scale would best be kept away from water or moisture. Refer to this list for water soluble minerals.
Other methods of cleansing involve burying crystals in the earth for a few days to a week (very effective method), smoke cleansing with incense or an herbal stick, steam cleansing, sound cleansing (chanting, tuning forks), burying in dry sea salt (do not do this with soft minerals), and burying in dried herbs. Certain crystals and stones — such as hematite, citrine and clear quartz — may be used to cleanse other specimens.
The purpose of recharging crystals is to replenish energy that may be lost when using them for healing, meditation or even just from sitting in a room. Again, sunlight and moonlight are common ways to do this. Other methods involve meditating with the crystal and using your own energy to charge the crystal, burying crystals in the earth, placing crystals next to a lit candle (but not too close), and placing them near thriving plants/trees/etc.
When to Cleanse and Charge Crystals
Once a week is best for most crystals that are used regularly in some way. If crystals are not used particularly often or at all, you can cleanse them every few months or not at all. It’s up to you. If a crystal feels “off” or its energy seems weaker or less vibrant, it’s a good indication that it needs to be cleansed and charged.
Crystals should be kept in an area that’s dry, clean and out of direct sunlight. Keep them away from heat sources, such as heaters, radiators, stoves, and vents. If you have a large collection, keep soft minerals separated from hard minerals to avoid chipping and scratching. Exposure to dust, moisture and salty air (common in coastal areas) may cause damage to certain minerals, so care should be taken in that respect. If possible, use boxes made of plastic or acid-free materials to prevent chemical reactions between the specimen and its container. Use soft fabrics to line boxes or contains that hold your crystals, to avoid surface damage.
Describe yourself on anon and I’ll say if I’d date you.
Got my first self promoter that stole my picture of my mini green book pendant and erased all credit it to.
