My friend ChaosFay just had her house catch fire.  The house has no power, the roof is shot, and they've gotta move out.

That means a LOT of expenses.  

She has to pay to live in a hotel until she finds a new place.  Her stuff has to go in storage.  And moving itself is always expensive.  Plus whatever she owes on the damages.

My house caught on fireIt wasn't a total loss.  We lost no property, but there's a lot of smoke.  The damage is mostly in the walls, outside, and all over the patio.  The roof and insulation are a total loss and need to be repair/replaced.  The house is still considered livable, but it has no power.  My husband is staying at the house to keep it safe, clean up, and pack boxes.  The landlord will be there tomorrow (we're renters) to see the damage, file with her insurance, and help us best she can.  She has waived rent this month.  We have renter's insurance.
I'm staying at a hotel in a different town because everything else was booked.  It's a nice hotel and covered by our insurance.  Technically covered only until the 14th but that date will be extended because of the circumstances.
American Red Cross gave us some resources.
Even if/when the landlord fixes the house (because it can be repaired) we still want to move.  The house has had nothing but probl


She is a phenomenal artist with very reasonably-priced jewelry and quilting work, which you can buy from her on Etsy. You can also donate to her directly via PayPal: PayPal: naynaymacrame-at-yahoo-dot-com.

If anyone can help, I will be very grateful!

I am giving away jewelry to those who help. Anyone who donates $20 or more may choose any 1 piece out of my Still For Sale Gallery on a first-come-first-serve basis: balthasarcraft.deviantart.com/…

Help a deviant out and get free jewelry. It's a win-win! 

Thanks!

RIP Tanith Lee

Most of you probably aren't familiar with Tanith Lee, which is truly a crime. She is positively one of the most wonderful authors in the entire world, an unrecognized genius, whose words are gems and whose sentences are goldmines. She is a shining star in my sky, and a few days ago, she died.

I made a pendant for her about a year ago, inspired by her novel The Birthgrave. I wanted to mail it to her, but never heard back. She fought several hard battles with cancer, which I assume is the monster that slayed her in the end. I never got to say "thank you" to her for her amazing work.

But she's still a shining star in my sky, and will be forever.

If you haven't read any of her books, I urge you to do so. I don't know what inspires me more, her exquisite prose poetry or her persistent refrain of rebellion and the search for authenticity and individuality. I hope that someday she gains the recognition she deserved in her lifetime, and that her spirit lives on somewhere as magickal as the worlds she put on the page.

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?

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 naynaymacrame.etsy.com 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!

"Art and life really are the same, and both can only be about a spiritual journey, a path towards a re-union with a supreme creator, with god, with the divine; and this is true no matter how unlikely, how strange, how unorthodox, one's particular life path might appear to one's self or others at any given moment." - Genesis Breyer P-Orridge
