Hey folks! It’s been a hot minute since I last did a giveaway, so I figured I’d do one again!

As you may or may not know, the past few weeks I’ve been making moss pendants using grave moss collected in October from a local historic cemetery, from a section dating back to the early 1800′s. This last week I put up my very last batch for the year.

One of the grave moss pendants from my last batch has a little flaw in the form of a tiny resin drip on the back corner but is otherwise a perfectly good piece, so I figured I’d give it away to a loving home!

(*No graves were disturbed in the harvesting of the moss, the moss was harvested from one of the oldest parts of the cemetery, far away from any plots that may still have mourners, the moss was taken from the ground, not a headstone).

What a dapper chap!  I was inspired by a few posts and popularity of my LED experiments in design.  Found an old skull charm, gave him goggles and cobbled together a top hat from an XL brass eyelet, some cut brass tubing and walled setting. I attached it at a slight jaunty angle.  Couldn’t resist installing a tiny LED within the skull set in resin.  Like my other pieces it’s powered by putting a small clutch battery pack on a small post.  The whole piece is set on a stick pin so it could be worn on a cravat or dress coat.  Unfortunately, the LED has made it very difficult to photograph accurately.  The light seems too bright but in reality it’s just an eerie green glow. Perfect finish to a gentleman’s outfit who dabbles in the macabre and dark arts. The batteries are easy to replace.

Happy Halloween/Samhain/Late Autumn folks! As promised last year, for a little while I’m bringing back some special moss pendants in time for the season; ones made with some local cemetery moss.

All of this moss was collected in a small pinch taken from a local historic cemetery.* I have nine pendants available this week, six small ones featuring “Worm Moss” (Bryoandersonia illecebra), and three larger rectangle pendants featuring “Palm Tree Moss” (Climacium dendroides). I should have a few more pieces available in the coming couple of weeks, as well.

Grave moss has long had a folkloric and symbolic association with spirits and the dead – perfect for the time of year when the veil, they say, is most thin.

(*No graves were disturbed in the harvesting of the moss, the moss was harvested from one of the oldest parts of the cemetery, far away from any plots that may still have mourners, the moss was taken from the ground, not a headstone).

All of these will be available tomorrow, Sunday the 20th of October at 12pm EST!

We’re now well into November, but I still have one, final batch of these to go! I was all ready for last week to be the last time these were available for the year, but as I was going through my dried specimens I realized I had an additional box of the specimens that wouldn’t quite fit in the main box.

I’m out of the Palm Tree Moss but have about 7 of the larger pendants with big feathery specimens of the Worm Moss, as well as 24 small pendants.

This last batch will be available tomorrow, Sunday November 10th at 1:30pm EST!

🌿🎃These are now available in the store! 🌿🎃
