    Metalsmith Benchtalk with Metalsmith and Owner of MeanderWorks, Marilyn Brogan

    in Art

    Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday, August 27th at 3:00 pm PST is metalsmith and jewelry designer Marilyn Brogan, owner of Meader Works, in San Diego, CA. 


     


    Please join us for this live interview and participate by logging onto the chatroom at Blogtalkradio.com or by sending a message to Whaley Studios via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. 


     


    About Marilyn;


     


    My name is Marilyn Brogan and I’m the designer, maker and curator of Meander Works, a one-woman studio based in San Diego, California. Meander Works offers delicate, minimalist jewelry made from recycled gold and silver – and soon, a line of engagement rings and wedding bands featuring recycled and traceable diamonds.


     


    I deeply value and admire good craftsmanship and believe a design is only as good as its execution. Jewelry is an expression of both the maker and the wearer – the quality of the construction is essential to that collaboration. If a ring looks beautiful but it is poorly made, then it may not feel right, fit right, or last. I’m inspired by antique jewelry and love the function of heirlooms. Like the handmade Appalachian quilts passed down to me from my great-grandmother, fine jewelry tells a story across generations. When I finish a piece of jewelry, I see a story that’s just beginning.

    PMP: Sabbat Box - Subscribing to the holy days

    in Spirituality

    Join RevKess & KaliSara as we talk to the creators of the recently launched Sabbat Box. We will be talking about their inspiration for the subscription box and the items included, as well as their own Pagan retail company, Eclectic Artisans.


    Hugh Carey, the founder of Eclectic Artisans and Sabbat Box, has been a practicing Pagan for over six years. As an eclectic Pagan, his magickal practice is a blend of traditional Witchcraft, folk magic, and shamanism, grounded in a holistic study of Paganism from around the world, both past and present. Hugh took his passion for paganism and the craft and turned it into his profession by starting Eclectic Artisans in 2012, and has turned it into one of the fastest growing internet Pagan retail stores. By melding the concept of an online store with a handmade Pagan marketplace, Eclectic Artisans has been able to successfully help promote small pagan owned businesses, artists and suppliers by bringing the international Pagan community together in a marketplace type setting.


    Thomas Howe retired from the U.S. Air Force in 2012 after 21 years, and attended Full Sail University to earn a BFA in Creative Writing. He has independently published a novel, Latent Image, and is currently working on another. Upon discovering the Pagan path with Hugh, he became a pragmatic atheist practitioner and has begun study as a member of the UK-based Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids, working toward his Bardic grade.


    "Our mission at Sabbat Box is to provide you the best Pagan products to help aid you in your spiritual journey."


    "Eclectic Artisans is focused on providing High-Quality, Handcrafted Pagan Products."

    Chef & Author Lorne Oliver Cooks Up Spine Chilling Terror In Madame Perry's Salon


    ABOUT THE AUTHOR


    Lorne Oliver was born and raised in the rural area outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.  It was the perfect place for him to grow up because his favorite thing to do was go hiking through the woods as often as he could with his dog Bullet at his side and a notebook in his backpack.  He first made the conscious decision to be a writer when he was ten and the school librarian asked if anyone knew any Canadian author's.  He put his hand up and the librarian said to come back when he was published.  Years later that same librarian came to the book launch of the first published anthology he was in.  It was not until June of 2012 that he published his first solo novel, Red Island.


    When he's not writing or marketing his work he is usually watching something that has to do with the
    mystery/suspense/thriller genre's or having fun with his wife, two children, and four dogs.
