Goddess Ceremonial Custom necklace for Judy Bechtold - "Homestead Horsewoman" -

I’ve had so much fun creating my Goddess necklaces through the years. When I first started making them, I thought they should be worn by very tall women, like myself, since they are ornate and elaborate. After selling them at my shows I found, to my delight, that ALL women seem to look good wearing my necklaces! I noticed that a strange thing seems to happen to the women who try them on. First they seem to be ordinary women but once the necklace goes over their heads..they become flamboyant gypsies! So, with that in mind. I am going to start a new series titled, “Gypsy Necklaces.”

Gypsy Trish

It’s logical that the necklaces would evolve to becoming gypsies. I have named other items I make “Gypsy” like my “Gypsy Woman Journals.” I think the real inspiration to change the necklaces though, came from Pam Aries of Aries Gypsy. Not only am I captivated by the gypsy music she plays on her blog but she recently showed a video of a gypsy caravan that conjures up memories I haven’t even experienced. Well, not in this lifetime anyway!

I’ll be posting my new Gypsy Woman Necklaces soon. I think they will be similar to the Goddess necklaces only much janglier and well, gypsyish!

In the meantime, I have this Goddess Ceremonial Necklace titled “She Who the Ocean Beckons” available for $125.

I also have this Gypsy Woman journal available for $89. Since I take all the credit cards (or checks) you can e-mail me if you are interested in purchasing from me direct or you can go through Paypal on Etsy.

If you haven’t had a chance to review the recipe for lasagna that my chef friend, Wayne, gave to me to post, you may want to check it out. I am giving away a pasta maker to celebrate that wonderful recipe. You have till March 31st to make a comment. Thank you so much for participating.
