RedSofa is a jewellery line by Montreal-based metalsmith and designer Joanna Szkiela. 

Inspired by nature and human nature, Joanna’s work is deeply ingrained with organic references and gravitates towards decidedly feral forms. 

Her predilection for dark-hewn sterling silver, unpolished gold and rough stones is a direct homage to the sculptural yet edgy side of nature. 

RedSofa’s jewelry collections capture a magical, alchemical world with unaffected style and understated elegance.

I almost bought my wedding bands from this shop. Lovely selection!

Good luck charm

the-darkest-of-lights:

Apache tear
7 star anis seeds
7 inches gold ribbon
4 inch square yellow fabric

Place the stone in the center of the fabric, add the star any seeds one at a time while chanting:

One for luck
Two for show
Three for favor
And four for honey
Five for old
And six for new
Seven bring success
In all that I do

Draw up the ends of the cloth and tie the pouch with the gold ribbon. carry the charm in your pocket or on your person for luck.

Faience vessel in the form of Eros riding a duck
Probably made in Egypt
c.300-250 BC
Said to be from Tanagra, Greece
This jug is the finest faience vessel surviving from the Hellenistic world. It takes the form of Eros, the Greek god of love, clinging to the neck of a duck on whose back he is riding.
The combination of traditional Egyptian techniques with a purely Greek theme is characteristic of the products of the faience industry at Alexandria. The court of the Ptolemies (the Hellenistic Greek rulers of Egypt) at Alexandria was a great artistic centre. It became the focus for cultural exchange between the Greek and Egyptian worlds and their distinctive artistic traditions.

Sorry for the confusion! I meant the second one, but I'd love to know more about the first too if you have time.

Hello, I will go over a little of both then, :)

Wild crafting
Wild crafting is the act of collecting and interacting with nature in your area. When you wild craft you learn about the plants in your area and how to ethically use them. Their are many plants both baneful and medicinal that grow in your area.


Witchcraft done in nature

When you practice in nature it is important to be aware of all of the creatures that inhabit it. And if you are going to give offerings be sure to use offerings that are safe for animal consumption. And don’t for get to keep the area that you use clean when you are finished. But apart from the ethical stuff; it is very ful feeling and exciting communing with nature and casting in the untamed and natural wilderness.
