Seer Moth, in reference to the all seeing eyes adorning it’s wings. A luminous white moonstone is embedded on her fluffy body.
Forest Spirit Pentacle
A pentacle overrun by the forest spirits - complete with twirling, beaded vines, thorns, and quartz stones.
Sorcière — my “love letter” to the witches, enchanters, and sorceresses from all the fantasy novels, myths, folklore, video games, movies etc. that I love so much. I like to imagine this little fixture of a melting candle atop a skull sitting on a witch’s altar or workspace. She’s in a high stone tower, wearing velvet robes and working on a suspicious necromantic ritual. Or perhaps she is delving into some ancient alchemy, mixing all manner of magical potions. The skull is adorned with a beautiful black moonstone.
This piece is a kind of tribute to the protective nature of serpentine creatures, like the snake, dragon, wyvern, etc., and the way they fiercely guard their sacred places and cherished treasure hoards. A talisman for prosperity, good luck, and powerful protection. Within these swirling thorns lays a black serpent curled around stones of labradorite, amethyst, and clear quartz.
Beaded fire coming out of a magical cauldron. The cauldron represents the hearth, divinity, rebirth, regeneration, and wisdom, amongst other things. This particular witches' tool is adorned with the symbol of the pentacle.
Seer's Sorrow - Purple
Seer's Sorrow — embroidered eye with beaded iris, onyx pupil, beaded eyelashes, and a crystal teardrop.
One of my favorite associations for the image of the Eye is its symbolism of wisdom, knowledge, and prophecy. I have always had a fascination with prophets and seers, starting when I first read about the Oracle of Delphi at a young age. I imagine that the power of foresight is a great ability to hold, but it must be rife with the sorrow of knowing future griefs and pains, and knowing you may not have the ability to change them.
I also created this particular design due to my love for the mourning eye. The eye miniature, or the lover's eye, was first worn as jewelry or carried as little pieces of art during the Georgian era. They held the same sentimentality as hidden lockets and locks of hair. It allowed individuals to always look upon the eye of their loved one, and carry it on their bodies. Perhaps once the Victorian era came about, and brought along with it the fascination and ritual of mourning, did this symbolic eye hold a sort of sadness & melancholy.
This particular eye is the purple iris variant, and comes with a special faceted onyx pupil.

Luna Moth with moonstone
Fluffy Luna Moth
Scorpion carrying a piece of the moon, in the form of luminous moonstone.
For me, some of the strongest symbolisms associated with the Scorpion is its affinity for the Shadow and its protective power & armour. It is an incredible symbol of self-reliance and resilience. It also represents sexual energy, poison, and transformation & rebirth.
The serpent eating its own tail, the Ouroboros, is a symbol of rebirth, eternity, and immortality. Snakes shed their skin and are born anew. Many cultures have drawn a parallel between the serpent and the umbilical cord, further cementing the relationship between the serpent and Life. Others see them as a guardian of the underworld, due to the fact that they nest in cracks and holes underground.
Serpents are also found in numerous creation myths around the world, like Nüwa or the Rainbow Snake. Serpents have a connection with water (like the Norse sea serpent Jörmungandr). The inherent fear that snakes seem to trigger in humans means they may be seen as symbols of darkness or chaos (like with Jörmungandr, once again, or the dragon-serpent Níðhöggr, who chews on the roots of the World-Tree Yggdrasil, or the Egyptian deity Apep, or the snake in the Garden of Eden). The Garden of Eden serpent may also been seen as a symbol of wisdom.
The Serpent is a guardian, much like dragons and the rest of its kin, protecting treasure hordes and sacred places.
This Ouroboros cradles the Sun and Moon - divine duality, life and death, centered in an eternal return.
The Swan is widely known to represent love, union, beauty, and grace. However, my most favorite associations are some it’s lesser known ones — its connection to dreams, emotions, transformation, and water magic, to name a few. Swan is sacred to Aphrodite and Apollo. In Celtic lore, the Swan represents a kind of liminal being — one that traverses the borders between life and death, of reality and dreams, into Otherworlds. Here, the Swan floats in a inky black pool under the full moon. Iridescent beads represent the gentle ripples of the water & the Swan stares ahead with its faceted black spinel eye.
Seahorses have long been representative of magic and mystery. They seem like a kind of shapeshifter — not quite fish, not quite horse, something a bit draconic. They have long been associated to sea gods and other divine beings across a number of cultures. Poseidon rode upon a chariot pulled by seahorses. To me, these creatures symbolize luck, dreams, transformation, soul travel, & the imagination. This black seahorse has an eye of grey moonstone and is surrounded by white coral, wispy aquatic leaves & pearlescent beads.
