Time For An Introduction: Pristine & Primrose!

So, does anyone remember back a few years ago when I was purchasing supplies to open my own Polytheist jewelry shop?  I did manage to get those supplies, but nothing else panned out for me at that time.  Then, in early 2015 I *almost* opened the shop, but had a major setback that put it off again.  I ended up giving everything I’d made at that point to my Deities and calling it quits.

Well, everything happens for a reason, and now I’m in a much better position for this endeavor than ever before.  In fact, I’ll be opening my actual storefront location fairly soon (it’s the same location where the FTSOA is located, though the public shrine opening was setback for reasons), so I won’t have to rely solely on online sales.  However! Online is still where I hope to make a name for myself and my brand, so I am finally gathering the courage to share it with you all here!

You’ve been my friendly and supportive base for all of my (sporadic) blogging activity for the past six years, so it’s only natural that I’d want to give you the most full glimpse of what I’ve been devoting the majority of my time to this last month.  If you’ve looked at my header menu, you’ve probably seen the link Pristine & Primrose .  It goes to my shop blog, where you can see pictures and listings of my work to date. Links in each listing will carry you to a specific item’s shop listing, where you may proceed to purchase, if you choose.

To date, I have around twenty-three listings, with more being planned and on the way in the coming weeks.  And I’m very excited!  This is truly my happy place.  Ten years ago, I was routinely making and selling my jewelry designs locally, but I never made a real business out of it at that time.  It was just what I loved to do.  Now that I have two children to inspire and support, I want to take my love of fine beaded jewelry (and other items) to the next level, specifically designed for Polytheists and Pagans!

So, check out some of what I have to offer, below, and be sure to “like” us on Facebook!

Thank you for reading!  I hope for many years success, by Hermes’ grace (Hermes is the Patron of Pristine & Primrose, and has been from the beginning), and your favor, especially!

****Also, please add a $10.00 USD shipping fee for domestic shipping within the United States, which covers Insured Priority Mail Shipping, to ensure that your purchase arrives safely, and in a timely manner.  I do not offer International Shipping at this time, but plan to work that out eventually.

Polymer Clay – Unpainted

A lovely icon of Hekate to hang in your shrine space, or to prop up on Her altar. With obsidian beads set as Her eyes, She holds a torch, as well as a snake.

She would make a lovely gift for Hekate, to adorn the Goddess’ sacred space, or to instead be filled with your love and devotion, as a proper icon.

Hail Hera, Queen of the Gods! Created specifically to house Her glory, this gorgeous necklace features crystal quartz, lapis lazuli, rose quartz, opalite and ruby jade.

Honor the Queen by wearing this piece, to showcase both Her loveliness and your devotion. Or, gift it to Her during your next ritual or ceremony, and receive Her many blessings.


Wine Offering Icon Adornment

$65.52 USD

This beautiful adornment features amethyst, fluorite, garnet, and ruby jade, and would make a thoughtful gift for any Deity, especially those associated strongly with wine, or the creation thereof. The adornment is easily draped and adjustable for oddly shaped icons.

Alternatively, it can also be worn as a bracelet.


Raven Spirit Vessel Necklace

$266.96 USD

Created with a raven spirit in mind, this vessel necklace features a silver tone brass raven skull pendant, silver tone spacer beads, crystal quartz nugget beads, brush painting jasper, obsidian, and sapphire jade. It would make a lovely gift and home for your familiar spirit, so they may remain close to you in all possible ways.


Lucifer’s Caress

$165.88 USD

This elegant choker necklace was made specifically at the request of Lucifer, to go to one of His own, hopefully, though anyone who wants to may purchase it.

Featuring rutilated quartz, obsidian, white jade, and pyrite colored hematite, it will gently hug the curve of your throat, accentuating your own natural sensuality.

As a beautiful statement of your relationship with Him, wear this necklace with pride, grace and confidence.


Again, thank you all for your readership, and for your future business! May your Gods and spirits bless you, always!

Big Texas Dionysos

 Big Texas Dionysos

You are everywhere I look

Oh, Long-horned God

Oh, Ivy-clad Son of Zeus

I see Your lusty presence adorning fine country homes

Of Red Hat Ladies

In their grape-cluster wallpaper

And their cocks in the kitchen

Is that what happens when the magic dies?

When youth seems a lifetime away?

The old women have reduced You to mere symbolism

And I pity them

Because, I’ll never be too old for You, my Lord

Not too old to dance or spin

Or to collapse in lustful fury

Oh, I’ll never be too old for You

Big Texas Dionysos

I won’t paint roosters on my walls

Because I’ll paint phalluses for You, my Lord

Then there really will be cocks in the kitchen

Big Texas Dionysos

I see Your swagger in the Cowboys’ strut

All hats and boots and buckles

And beer…

But wine is better

It stains my lips such a lovely red

While I toast You, Dionysos

To You will I lift my glass, dear Lord

Watching bulls toss grown men on their asses on TV

In less than eight seconds flat

Big Texas Dionysos

You are in the ever-greening Land

Pouring forth with life

Young flowers and fruits

And grasses shooting to the sky

The little animals partake of the Mystery

Fornicating for the next generation

Of squirrels, and rabbits, and all the wild beasts

I can also be a wild beast

Big Texas Dionysos

Though You knew it even before I did

Here, my Lord

Let me show You…
