Come, I have been expecting you...
I have some goodies for you~
For the year 2020, I plan to do a free Tarot reading for each sign of the Zodiac, my Precious Gem! I want to offer a reading for each sign so that you may see what the Universe may have in store for you on your Birthday. I hope that you will enjoy these readings as much as I enjoy sharing them with you.
Please keep in mind that these readings are general, so they may resonate with some people more than others. There is a whole lot of energy in the Universe, so it would be extremely hard to have a general reading that resonates with everyone at the same time. None the less, I hope that you will take advantage of the free readings and see what they say. You might be surprised.
I also wanted to let you know that I offer a 20% discount in my shop when you join our mailing list. This discount code never expires and you can use it as many times as you would like. This is just one way that I can say, “Thanks for being here.”
Did you know that we also have a private Facebook group? Well, we do. It is a place where I share exclusive content with you, my Precious Gem! You can take advantage of some awesome deals, just by being a member of the Mystic Realm. I hope that you will come and join us.

Tarot has been around for centuries. It is believed to have originated in Italy and from there, made its way to France and England. The first Tarot decks date back to the 1400’s and were commissioned by wealthy Italian nobles to be painted by famous artists of that time. The earliest surviving deck is known as the Visconti-Sforza deck and is believed to have been created in Milan. With the exception of six cards within the deck, these cards were all hand painted by an artist by the name of Bonifacio Bembo. Each card was inlaid with real gold and painted on sturdy card stock, lending each one to be deemed a separate work of art.
In the early 18th century, the Marsielle model was created and became the standard iconographic model for the cards. French Marsielle Tarot became a point of reference for manufacturers and for card players, alike. By 1750, The Marsielle Tarot iconographic model spread all over England. The success of the Marsielle Tarot created demand for the cards. New techniques were developed allowing for more decks to be created with better quality at lower costs.
By the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century, Tarot had spread through all of Europe as a card game. Eventually, the Church condemned the game of Tarot and its connection with gambling. From 1750 to the early 1900’s, proper Tarot Divination began and was studied and transformed by occultists. Between 1900 and 1910, the modern meanings of Tarot were codified within the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and in 1909, the Rider-Waite deck was born.
The influence that occultists and scholars from France and England had on Tarot from the second half of the 18th century to the Second World War influenced the tradition of Tarot, as a whole. Even today, the Marsielle Tarot Model (French) and the Rider-Waite-Smith decks (English) are the two main traditions of Tarot.
By 1970, Tarot had spread to general use all over the world. The ability to read Tarot, intuitively, has opened the door for thousands of people to read the cards. From 1970 to today, Tarot experts from around the globe contribute to the evolution and understanding of Tarot. Tarot continues to grow and evolve bringing about an understanding that there is not one absolute truth to Tarot, but rather, a faceted story left to be interpreted and told by the one reading the cards.
Sensitivity and intuition are what guide me to pick the cards for you, my Precious Gem. I believe that I am merely the conduit for the Universe to work through, so that I may deliver the messages that your higher self has for you. I hope that you will allow me to deliver your messages to you through the Tarot. The experience is so worth it!
Did you know that there are wire wrapped jewelry pieces in existence today that are over 5,000 years old? Elements of wire jewelry have been found in Pharaoh’s tombs and pyramids across Ancient Egypt. The art of wire wrapping has managed to snake its way through history. It made its way from Ancient Egypt to the Roman Empire and continued its adventure until it eventually came to grace the British Isles. Not too long after that, the craft would come to rest on the shores of America. The technique of wire wrapping remained fairly constant throughout this journey. Photos of jewelry found in ancient tombs in Egypt remarkably resemble some of the pieces that are being created today.
The fact that the art of wire wrapping uses ‘cold connection’ techniques made wire a perfect medium for ancient civilizations to create jewelry from. They did not have to depend on fire or electricity to create their pieces of finery. There was no need for glue or solder to create eye catching pieces that could display stones, impeccably. All they needed was their hands, some wire, the stones, and a few simple tools.
Modern technology has changed the way jewelry is designed, but I chose to keep the old ways alive. I follow the ‘cold connection’ techniques and practice using no glue or solder in any of my designs. I use only my hands and a few tools to keep the stones in place in my jewelry pieces. There is an element of satisfaction in knowing that I have created something with a few tools and my bare hands that will survive the test of time, just like the Ancient Egyptians did.
