I'm having a sale!  Sales are awesome!

I'm relocating soon and have some extra expenses to deal with.  So, all orders over $15 at my Etsy shop will receive 20% off with the coupon code SUMMER2014.  This deal is only available through the end of September, so take advantage of it if you've had your eye on something!  Please note this does not apply to commissions.

If you see something in… my Still for Sale gallery that is not listed on Etsy, and you want it, let me know and I'll get it posted on Etsy for you.

My new friend Scribble-Demon is strapped for cash and could use a financial boost.  He does very reasonably priced drawing commissions!  Check out his journal:  Urgent Paypal Comm!!ALSO astrophysh has opened his commissions as well, so please concider either one of us. Thank you!
Commission Update!
First off a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has commissioned me so far. Thank you thank you thank you, you guys have literally saved us. While the immediate/initial issue has passed there is still a lot going on. I would like to just say that  we currently have food in the house, thanks to everyone, and like always we will make it last as long as physically possible. 
However I would ask that anyone who finds this and wants/can  to please concider comissioning us still. As is we barely get by every month, his paycheck gets eaten by rent and bills and leaves us with very very little food, let alone anything else.
So our commissions will remain open, as they are my only source of income and way of helping taking the money stress off of him.
Thank you in advance to anyone who
 for details.  For a few dollars, you can help him out and get an awesome drawing in return!

My awesome super fabulous friend ChaosFay is moving and is tight on funds.  If anyone is willing to lend a hand, please check out her journal entry here:  Go Fund MeSeeing as moving makes things really tight for us, I decided to start a GoFundMe campaign.  You can check it out here:  Every little bit helps.  We're moving out August 1st or 2nd and into a motel until we have the apartment cleaned.  We'll be out of here August 4th, and hopefully in Oregon by August 7th or 8th, depending on how traveling goes.
All donations of $50 and up will receive free custom jewelry equal to the amount they donate. 
Please share the link and spread the news.  Thank you!
  Donate $50 or more and you will receive custom jewelry in return!  Scroll to the bottom of this entry to see examples.  You'll also receive my personal gratitude, since she is moving closer to me and I will get to meet her soon soon soon!


Ganjamira has a super cool craft supply giveaway going on.  All you have to do to enter is link to it in your journal, and then leave a comment on the giveaway journal saying which set you'd like to enter.  What a super generous person!  Thank you Ganjamira for running 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.

My friend ChaosFay :iconchaosfay: 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:

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.
