Mother's Day Handmade Jewelry Gift Ideas by Shadow Dog Designs

 

 

Mother’s Day will soon be here, just a few short weeks from now.  With all the mass produced jewelry gifts out there, wouldn’t Mom REALLY love a handmade jewelry gift better?  Especially if the earrings or necklace are a one of a kind piece that no one else in the universe has!  Handmade items are made from the heart by the artisan who designed and created the piece.  I know I have always loved an artisan piece - they mean so much more to me than something tens of thousands of other people might have.

Powerful Pink - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 

 

To most people, the color pink is a “sweet” color:  charming, playful, cute, feminine, romantic and so on.  But in the past few years, it also represents struggles and the need to warrior on.  Think of all the pink worn, especially ribbons, signifying breast cancer awareness.  And the pink hats, shirts, and other articles of clothing worn by millions during the recent women’s marches.  Thinking on this, pink is not just feminine and sweet, a bubblegum / cotton candy color.  It has come to signify power, rising up and demanding equal rights.

Happy Easter! - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 

 

 

Modern-day Easter is derived from two ancient traditions: one pagan and the other Judeo-Christian. Both pagans and Christians have celebrated death and resurrection themes following the spring equinox for millennia.  A majority of religious historians believe that many elements of the Christian observance of Easter were derived from earlier pagan celebrations.  The name “Easter” itself originated with the names of an ancient goddess.  The Venerable Bede, (672-735 CE), a Christian scholar, first mentioned in his book De Ratione Temporum that Easter was named after Eostre (a.k.a. Eastre). She was the Great Mother Goddess of the Saxon people in Northern Europe. The "Teutonic dawn goddess of fertility was also known as Ostare, Ostara, Ostern, Eostra, Eostre, Eastra and others.
