ChaosFay put together this nifty personal soundtrack thing:  My Personal SoundtrackI thought I'd do something a little interesting here.  I'm bored, my hand hurts too much to make anything, and I'm in the mood for music.  So here's a little challenge.  Put together a soundtrack of yourself.  Minimum 10 songs.  You don't need to provide links to the songs, just the title.  Share it and see how others respond. 
This one is mine. It's long, I know, but I'm 30 years old.  I've got some miles on me with songs and stories that need knowing.  A lot of these are specific moods, moments in my life, and others are phases of my life.  Some are me when I'm manic, others are me in a nutshell.  I've got songs I listen to when I put on my makeup, others when I need to remind myself I'm here and going strong.  A few make me cry because of what I associate them with, and others just make me feel damned sexy.  My childhood, my awkward and teenage years, surviving the hell I lived in, discovering myself and what I can do,

Because she is awesome, I plan to listen to every song on her list.  It will probably take me ages, but that is perfectly okay, because it is nice being able to imagine what it is like to be someone else on some level and experience the days of her life, especially someone artistically inseparable from me.  A number of the songs on her list are songs I love, so it's like being able to see a crossover in experience.  

Here's my list.  It is stupidly long, but I cut out like a third of it and still got this.

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 (but only some of the time, and only if you talk to me first).

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.

Come visit me on Etsy!…

Welcome to Balthasar Craft - Reversing the Industrial Revolution one piece at a time.

I make hand crafted one-of-a-kind wire wrap, gemstone and sea glass jewelry! Every piece has a story, some unknown and waiting to be told, others hinting with soft secrets of unseen worlds. I create wire wrap pendants, earrings, ear cuffs, bracelets, chokers, and ornate head pieces with the inspiration of ancient times and times that never were ...

Gemstones, crystals, sea glass, shells, and other natural materials are used to create my unique jewelry, inspired by Mother Earth herself. My work is environmentally friendly and crafted with love and positive energy. Be at one with the earth, sea, air, and fire of Creation. Balthasar Craft is your natural jewelry store.

If you're interested in a custom made piece please contact me! I love to take commissions!

Renee Boyett of has used my pendants in
a number of her beautiful macrame pieces. When you purchase my work
and send it to her for a custom made piece, we will both give you 25%
off - 25% off the pendant, and 25% off the necklace she makes for you.
Contact me if you're interested in this. We'll be able to ship the
piece directly to her (for free!), and you can contact her with the
finer details of what you'd like to have, her price requirement, and
shipping cost for the finished item.

Remember everything is handmade and no two items will ever be exactly the same!

About Me: Kyla inhabits the magickal land of the Redwoods in the Pacific Northwest. The Balthasar is the soul of a living, self sustaining airship from beyond the stars, on a mission of hope to help bring to others the means to achieve their dreams. One day Kyla and her own crew of dreamers will sail this ship around the globe to the disenfranchised in need of resources or even a little encouragement - and do her best to provide both. Unfortunately even dirigibles from beyond the stars require human beings to give them form! My profits go not only into putting the next meal on my table, but ultimately into the construction of my lighter-than-air-craft! When you buy a product from Balthasar Craft, you'll have the joy of knowing you're contributing a bit of personal energy into yet another fabulous creation! One which will make the whole world a little more magickal.
