Herne the Hunter, Cernunnos and the Green Man have similar traits:
What inspired me in this piece was to create an image based on all of the
positive aspects of this Old Religion. So I took inspiration from all three characters to create this God of the Forest. Herne the Hunter, Cernunnos and the Green Man are all associated with knowledge and wisdom of the forest: Herne the Hunter is watcher over the animal kingdom; Cernunnos is a fertility god; and the Green Man presides over the vegetable Kingdom and fertility, who is often celebrated on May day at the beginning of spring. I have used an owl as it’s also associated with wisdom and knowledge, as well as a dragonfly to symbolise transformation. I personally wanted to show respect and honor to our Old Gods – those that help to watch over and protect the natural law of the Earth.

This Yule card was inspired by Joni, its all about winters wonder. During the first fall of snow everything looks so pure and beautiful and ifs your first time theres nothing like making snow angels and catching your first flakes, or watching you pets experiencing it for the first time, like how they try to catch the flakes with there paws and kinda jump in the snow. Then theres our old friend the Robin who returns to us forever faithful watching over us with his warm glowing breast. For me everything is so calm and beautiful, and full of enchantment. Also available in pocket mirrors, rings, necklaces, cards and prints at my etsy store
This classic goddess symbol was inspired by another close friend of mine. The symbol of the tree wraps around her body, nourishing the goddess within. Moonstone, associated with the Goddess and said to be associated with Diana, is entwined into her hair providing protection on land and sea. Here we have the tree representing land and she is poised over the sea. Moonstone also brings good fortune, assists in foretelling the future, promotes inspiration and brings success in love as well as business matters. If you give your lover a moonstone necklace, then whenever the moon is full you will always be passionate with each other. As such, moonstone has long been worn as an amulet to bring good emotions to the wearer, while also protecting those of a more sensitive nature.
These rings are amongst my favorite, this design also comes in pocket mirrors, necklaces, cards and prints at my etsy store
