I want to do a quick feature for my beautiful friend ~Rafaeliyah She's a silly goose and doesn't want me to because she thinks her dancing is not good enough yet, but I think she's amazing. Check out her wonderful dancing to the music of Orphaned Land:
She's also a wonderful model. I love her work not just because she's gorgeous on the outside, but also because the light within her shows through her eyes, and it's even more beautiful still:
What I love best about ~Rafaeliyah is her genuineness. There's no affectation in anything she does. She leads a faith-based life--but not the kind that's full of dusty tomes and words with forgotten meanings. Her every breath is a gift to her Creator, and her art is inspired in the truest sense by her relationship with the divine. Her art is alive, like her faith, filled with courage and honesty.
HOLIDAY SALE!! 30% off everything on Etsy!
I am running a sale for the holidays on my Etsy shop: balthasarcraft.etsy.com . Use the coupon code 30PERCENTOFF (yes, very clever, I know) to get 30% off on any purchase. I only have a few items posted there right now, but I will be adding a lot more in the coming days. You can use the coupon anytime between now and the last day of the year. If you see anything in my Still For Sale Gallery: balthasarcraft.deviantart.com/… which you want which is not posted on Etsy yet, drop me a note and I'll add it so you can purchase it.
Update: I have added new (old) items to my Etsy shop! Many of them are under $20.00.
Also, I do accept commissions, as does my awesome friend =ChaosFay . Scroll down to the bottom of this entry to see pieces we have made together. We will each give you a discount if you order a joint commission from both of us! She is ALSO having a sale running from November 28th to December 3rd. Spend at least $50 over at her shop, naynaymacrame.etsy.com , and you'll get 50% off. That's a heck of a discount for amazing wearable art.

If you want something that's posted here and isn't posted there and know you'll buy it within 24 hours, I will post it there for you if that's how you prefer to check out. Just let me know.
I am now taking POINTS as a payment method for jewelry purchases.
It seems that DA now allows me to convert points into actual cash which I can withdraw through PayPal. So, PayPal and money orders are no longer my sole payment methods. You can now buy jewelry from me using points. This includes commissions as well as pieces which are posted for sale. Please note me if you would like to purchase something I've posted so I can calculate the shipping for you (as well as the value of the piece in points!).
So it'd be like this:
$15 item: 1200 points
$20 item: 1600 points
$30 item: 2400 points
and so on.
International shipping seems to run me about $10 these days, so add on another 800 points if you're not in the US.
US shipping: 400 points.
My friend =ChaosFay is a brilliant macrame artist who makes fabulous necklaces at very low prices. If you commission her for a necklace, I will give you 10% off on any pendant you wish to purchase from me. We can combine your orders if you'd like as well and send you the finished result. Here are some of the awesome necklaces she has made with my pendants:
