My friend ChaosFay is having a sale over at Fine Art America!  You can get 20% off AND a $100 coupon for Naked Wines just for ordering.  

Visit her print shop here:…

Also, she and I have both sold very little in a long time on our Etsy pages to the point where neither of us is willing to make new stuff until our backstocks reduce size a bit.  Please consider buying some of her awesome stuff:…  When it comes to making jewelry, she really is my muse.  Her stuff is incredible and very reasonably priced.  Buy it!


I wrote a book!

This isn't your typical go-on-a-magic-quest-and-fight-dragons fantasy. It's a gritty drama with a fantasy backdrop where everything is just a shade off of familiar. It's a story about violent, compromised people struggling to live and love in a world entrenched in moral ambiguity and spiritual emptiness. Here is the short summary:

Talystasia stands divided.  An ancient wall runs down the city’s center, and for centuries, the Lorens and Telyras have vied for dominance.  But their endless feud is not the only schism that runs through these pages.  Here, loyalties are fractured and hearts and minds are also divided.  Will Andreas Telyra and Roselia Loren triumph on the war grounds within, or will they succumb to the cycle of violence and spiral even deeper into the dark?

Please Help a Fellow Deviant Out! - And Win Free Jewelry!

Want to win a free jewelry item from my backstock?

My good friend Lon3NightWolf is in serious need of cash for a medical emergency. Essentially, she has a twisted spine that's turning arthritic, and it could cost her the ability to walk if she doesn't get it treated fast.

You can donate on her GoFundMe page here: .

Please help Jenn. She is a sweet, decent, beautiful person who deserves to have a fantastic life. She's had misfortunes stacked against her from pretty much the start, and she has nowhere to turn for support but to us, her community.

If you contribute to Jenn's account and she achieves or exceeds her donation goal, I will enter you to win a random drawing. If I choose your name, you can choose any item you would like from my backstock… as your prize. I have additional unposted stuffs, and you can choose from that lot as well.

If you cannot send money, please re-share this on your own journals.

Thank you for your help!

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.
