Missy & Brit { @overgrown_nightshade } of our Denver home away from home Ritual Cravt {@ritualcravt} honored us by creating a *beautiful* tea which includes a delicious of coconut milk powder, rose petals, shredded palo santo, marshmallow root, jasmine, cinnamon & hawthorn berries. I’m beyond honored{ swollen hive heart feels !🖤} by this gesture and have been sipping it since I was sent a preview tin last month - I’m so excited for it to be out in the world and enjoyed as much as I enjoy it 😊🖤 More info via @ritualcravt #plantallies #magictea #bloodmilk

Next month { exact date TBA } we’ll be releasing Part I of a new, small collection that ties into ‘Darkling, I Listen’, a further dive into the Snake as medicine, protector and inspiration. Here: sterling life cast boa snake rib bones frame a large { 50mm } magnifying glass lens. An even larger version of this piece was one of my earliest designs - made back in 2010 - only a few were released & sadly even I don’t have one. At the time- the joined and circular Snake ribs was my idea of an Ouroboros- that ancient symbol of the eternal return. This will be released in two sizes along with a cast snake ouroboros spy glass and a few other jewels, including a new collection of Mourning & Ritual beads. Though it’s still ‘winter’ weather where I am - I’m enjoying the fertile, inspiring feels of Spring & Persephone’s return so potently this year 🖤🙏 #bloodmilk #lookcloser #selfexamination #shadowexamination #psychicarmor

“ Time passes. You find yourself aware of the date, a hot landmark in the year, grim birthday. Observe from the corner of your eye how this date ( unremarked by others, unknown and unspoken ) appears, recedes, then approaches again. A red coal tucked between other days, radiating “ - Joni Tevis from ‘Touch the Bones’ An eye of grief and sorrow - tears of frustration, of heart ache, of illness, of transformation. Also, a symbol of the tears unable to be shed. Melancholia as a state of being rather than a place of shame. A token of self-acceptance - even on the strangling days. For anniversaries of ‘grim birthdays’ and loss. For working through the fertile darkness and finding your place within it. #bloodmilk #psychicarmor #protection #grief

The last portrait of the #bloodmilk Client Series Part I: Bryce { @id_bryceschulte } & his personal collection via @jason.w.blake This client series was born out of a desire to showcase the amazing people who have been supporting me through the years with their friendship & jewel collecting. As these friends/clients { some of whom I’ve known for years and some just over the last year or so } came through Philly, our staff photographer Jason took their portraits either in our studio or within his home, using his amazing way of making feel comfortable and safe. This more personal approach to ‘editorial or lookbook’ type photos is more intimate and sincere - especially considering I only work with one main model/friend { @crystalleelucas } for our other visual vignettes, which was a choice I made years ago as I think of Crystal to be a stand in for myself and wanted continuity across the visual narratives we created for BloodMilk. The approach with Crystal is more dreamlike and fantastical while these client portraits are rooted in the real, and are very sentimental for me. I hope you enjoy them and I hope for this series to be ongoing for as long as I’m making jewels and stories. My heart is a hive - so many thanks to all of you who have sat for these portraits - I know how uncomfortable it can be & for those who will in the future. Love always 🖤-Jess

Many years ago, when I was just starting my jewel project and still writing for art magazines, my path crossed with the amazing Pam from @phantasmaphile. Over the years its been amazing to see her continue her blog and also branch out into other ventures such as curating art shows, continuing her scholarly studies, collaborating with @tincanforest & now, working on a podcast called @witchwavepod. Recently we started supporting Pam and this new venture by advertising on her podcast - the very first one we sponsored was an interview with @trueracheltrue from the 90’s classic film The Craft. I loved hearing her speak about being a tarot reader and working on other projects such as a possible Marie Laveau film. Although Pam has just started this venture- she has many amazing interviews already recorded for your listening pleasure with other artists and witches: @gabyherstik, @thehoodwitch, @wildsoulhealing, @tamarasantibanez and more. For more: visit @witchwavepod 🖤 #racheltrue #thecraft #witchwave
