Baubles and Beadles Review & Giveaway




When it comes to shopping for Wiccan wares and accessories, I tend to look online. We have a few stores in my area that sell the occasional pagan related item, but for the most part they are grossly overpriced. Besides, I prefer to buy handmade items from members of the pagan community. A great place to find some lovely pagan oriented jewelry is a little shop on Etsy called Baubles and Beadles. Not only are their items each a work of art, they are also filled with the positive energy of their creator.





For my review, I was sent a beautiful pair of pentacle earrings aptly named, White Magick. The piece is made from pewter pentacles and white Swarovski crystals laced onto delicate silver tone ear wires. The base is made from surgical steel. The combination is truly magical. The pentacle is always a powerful symbol of protection. The white crystals remind me of the color of the full moon, adding even more power to the piece. They are very sturdy and well made, but they won't feel too heavy on your ears. You can wear them casually or with dress clothes, and of course they would be the perfect accessory for rituals. If you love it as much as I do, you might want to get the matching book mark and charm.





You don't have to be Wiccan or Pagan to enjoy the lovely work at Baubles and Beadles. Many of her pieces are made from natural stones which are just as lovely to look at as they are valued for their magical properties. And some are inspired by Arthurian legends.  She has dozens of earrings, necklaces and bracelets in a wide variety of styles and colors. Her descriptions of each piece will explain the magical properties of each of the designs or the inspiration behind them.  Truly this is a one of a kind shop that woman of all walks of life will enjoy for its empowering and beautiful jewelry.




One lucky winner is going to receive the same pair of White Magick pentacle earrings that I received to review but yours will be on white gold plated ear wires!
