Season’s Greetings Beautiful People! Come See What I’ve Made This Winter!

Happy Holidays, beautiful people!

I wish you and yours the peace and beauty that make your heart sing in this season of cold weather and warm hearts. Love comin’ at ya from Ravenbird’s Nest! While you’re doing your holiday shopping, I thought I’d remind you that for a special treat, give someone a hand crafted gift this year, not unlike the fabulous goodies in my Etsy shop! OK, that’s a shameless plug, but then, it is my website, so I can’t resist sharing the latest news.

I have just finished listing a few more pretties in my shop, including my Aqua Blue “Little Angel” earrings! These Little Angels come in various colors, so come to my Etsy shop and check them out! These are lever back earrings so sturdy that even busy little girls won’t lose them!


Next, I found some of the most perfect tiny Abalone Shells and created some Island-Style necklaces! I sold all but a couple of them before I even had a chance to list them though, so get them while you can. I hope to make more within a week or so, and if you want something a little different, I can do a special order for you using my “Microme” technique to make a very Moana looking necklace. These necklaces have coordinating earrings in my store, from Blue Mother of Pearl and real Freshwater Pearls, which I showed you in my last post.

These little Abalone Shells glisten and gleam in the light makingit hard to photograph them well, but in person, they are truly stunning!. Have a look:


I am also beginning to work with pure copper wire, which looks great even as it ages, and combining that with Genuine Turquoise which, in addition to being a striking look, also works metaphysically to help inspire confidence in speaking, excellence in communicating one’s thoughts and is good for all ailments of the throat.

So, for now, I have lots of lovely new things to show you, these are only a few.

But I have even better news!!! I recently came into an absolutely amazing Dragon’s Hoard of Gems, Silver Chains, Pearls, and much much more!

The only thing I’ve been lacking is the time to sit down and create!  I will be through with my college semester after tomorrow and at that point, I can get down to the business of making LOTS of new items again, including my Staffs, Magic Wands, Amulets and Spell/Wish Candles!

I hope you are enjoying all the new things I am making for you. I do love a challenge, so let me know what you would like to see and I’ll see what can be done to accommodate you! I love doing special orders and Vintage Jewelry repairs!

In my next post, I will be writing on a seemingly unrelated subject, but one that is very close to my heart; Low Dose Naltrexone as an alternative to Opioid Pain Medications. I will explain next time, but let me suffice it to say that this medication has been a miracle in my life, and that’s why I want to share the news with all of you, my favorite peeps. Till then, Happy Holidays, Blessed Yule, and have a good, safe winter season!

Peace and love,






New Items in my Etsy shop!

Holy crow! Is it December already? I have let time get away from me, and now I’m going to make up for it!

I have resolved to list new items every week in my Etsy shop throughout the holidays and for the foreseeable future.  In fact, I just got a huge lot of Aura Quartz, and charms and some truly spectacular gemstones and I’ve already started adding items as of today.

Let me show you some of the new things I am creating:

Glow in the Dark Fairy Lantern

Genuine Aura Quartz Crystal Fairy Garden
Aura Crystal Fairy Garden, even more crystals inside!
Amethyst Fairy Moon Necklace


And that’s only the beginning! Look for new pretties made with TIger eye, Amethyst, Purple Copper Quartz (You have to see this stuff to believe it!) Malachite, Mother of Pearl and much more!  If you are looking for something in particular, please don’t hesitate to ask – I LOVE a challenge!

Thanks for hanging on while I was unable to update here, but I promise, I’ll surprise and delight you with all the new items, and with much more frequent posts from now on out! Any questions? Just let me know and I’ll post some Q&A in the very near future.

Till next time,










New Hand Painted Dragon Eye Pendants

What’s New in Hand Painted Dragon Eyes

I have recently made some new hand-painted dragon eye pendants!  These beauties are available as keychains, necklaces and steampunk style chains with the ever-popular gears accenting the pieces.

How Hand-Painted Dragon Eyes are Made

I use optical glass cabochons and paint the backside in layer after layer of depth and color to create a realistic eye look. Since these are dragon eyes, they can be any color in the universe and they certainly do!

Black Light Reactive

The Dragon Eyes now available are all blacklight reactive, meaning that they change color and glow in ultraviolet light. Great for Clubbing, Kids gifts and infusing any outfit with some Dragon Style!

Don’t be fooled into buying the commercially made, “dragon eyes”. Those are made by gluing a printed eye onto a metal bezel and putting a

cheap plastic cover on it to simulate a real eye.  Unfortunately, that kind of dragon eye looks flat and dull. Get one of my Dragon eyes for yourself or someone else today! Need a specific color combo? No problem, just message me and tell me what colors you would like!

Willow wood “faerie Wand” with a silver unicorn charm

I also have some new wands and other wooden items in Cosmic Delights right now, so please stop by and if it’s a Saturday from 1 to 6 PM, I’ll be doing readings at Cosmic that day so stop in and say “Hi!” Hope to see you all soon,

Have a happy day!






New Hand-painted Dragon Eye Pendants in Raven’s Creative Outlet!


Red/Gold Dragon Eye, GLOWS in blacklight!

I just completed some Hand-painted Dragon Eye Pendants and many other new treasures to go in my Etsy shop, Raven’s Creative Outlet! My hand-painted Dragon eyes

are just beautiful, even if I do say so myself. I create them by painstakingly applying layer upon layer of enamel, to build up a hyper-realistic look that shimmers and seems almost real.

I’ve been working very hard to get back on track with my crafting, and especially my woodworking, as that’s very difficult for me to do in the Wisconsin winter, on my open porch/workshop. More on that soon, but for now, there is a whole new world of goodies in my shop now, including my Psychic readings, Spell candles and more! Stop into my Etsy Shop and have a look today! I will be adding some more meaningful content to this site very soon. I’ve just been working very hard and meeting so many amazing people at Cosmic Delights, it’s been hard to find the time to write! 🙂 Speaking of Cosmic Delights and my readings there, I will soon be offering Palm Printing to go with the Palm Reading that I do!


Stephen and I are bringing back something we used to carry in our old store and expanding on the original idea, that is, Pewter jewelry and Pewter combined with semi-precious gemstones to provide both beauty as well as metaphysical benefits!  Not to worry I’ll be back with lots more information and new goodies to tell you about soon. Send me a question related to my crafting or psychic readings to be entered for a free advanced Psychic Tarot Reading that I’m giving away this month.  As always, if you have need of witchy services, be it spells, ritual tools or just ingredients for making your own magic, please contact me and I’ll see what I can do to help.

In the meantime, have a happy day!

My Solitary Circle Brand Products Now Available at Cosmic Delights!

I’m happy to announce that some of my own Solitary Circle creations are now available at a terrific local store, Cosmic Delights in East Madison, Wisconsin!

The owners Luna and Andrew are both great people, and bring a knowledge and experience

Quartz Crystal I Often Use in Psychic Readings

to this store that I’ve often found lacking in other metaphysical type establishments. Helping people find just what they are looking for, or helping them to discover what stones, oils, etc. will best help them is something I’ve seen first hand and I am very impressed with the kind and competent way they deal with everyone who comes in.

So, after years of selling my goodies only direct, at festivals and online, I am putting some things for sale at Cosmic Delights and frankly, it is I who am delighted for my products to be there!


Willow Staff with Quartz Crystal Top

Some of the Raven and Solitary Circle items you can now go see at Cosmic Delights include, my hand carved wooden wands, athames and staffs, Spell Candles, in Love, Prosperity/Success and Peace/Protection varieties, in a new votive size, simple to use, and sized small enough to get results started fast!

Another favorite from my very first days of selling spells and potions is my Smokeless Smudge! Brewed one small batch at a time, this powerful potion comes in a convenient small non-aerosol spray bottle so you can use this to cleanse your environment, no matter where that should happen to be! Car, home, office, anywhere it’s needed! Besides being a powerful cleansing potion made with Sage, Sweetgrass, Cedarwood and other traditional smudging herbs and resins, this stuff smells incredible and the aromatheraputic benefits alone help to make any place happier and more calm. If you haven’t tried it yet, please do, and share it with others who might need it. Great for a small gift under the Yule tree this season!

Ebony Wand






I have a small selection of Tarot/Rune/Dice drawstring bags there as well although I have just received a new lot of fabrics and plan to add more variety and more of the large size bags to the existing collection soon.

Did I mention that Cosmic Delights has a terrific selection of stones and crystals? In addition to tumbled and raw minerals, they also have some carved pieces and many wonderful pieces of gemstone jewelry as well. They carry tarot decks, books, and incense, too! As a matter of fact, they carry my very own, made right here in Madison, Solitary Circle Incense! So there are some very good things happening right now, and I hope you will pay a visit to Cosmic Delights soon! I’m sure you’ll be as delighted as I am! Tell ’em Raven sent you!
