New In The Shop: An Unkindness of Ravens

Good Morning,

Last weekend I received some neat and unique components for creating jewelry.  I spent time creating accompaniments or fitting the design together for truly interesting and one of a kind  adornments.

A group of Ravens, depending on where there are or what they are doing may be called, a Constable of Ravens, this usually refers to the ravens kept captive at the Tower of London, it is thought that their flight encircling the tower protects the Crown (the country).  Raven groups are also called a Conspiracy or an Unkindness, ravens are highly territorial and will sometimes attack other birds or ravens not of their flock, long ago this was looked as an unkindness in the animal kingdom.

Ravens Nook, has it's own unkindness that conspires to bring out the darker side of your fashion choices.  Currently available:

This charming little pair of earrings are unusual and attractive, subtle flashes of prismatic light play across the surface of the genuine Labradorite beads, reminding one of a cloudy moonlit midnight, or storm that might be passing overhead. Great for Rocker, Goth or darker fashion attire.

A member of the feldspar mineral family, legend holds that it fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis, appearing as an average stone until it catches the light revealing a shimmer that represents the separation between the waking world and that of the unseen realms. This shimmer is called labradorescence. Labradorite is said to calm the mind, and helps to bring out the best in people.
