Billy Zeeman, value $250.00: Jewelry
My name is Billy Zeemann, and I am a metalsmith, jewelry designer, and mixed-media artisan, and with every piece of jewelry I make, I feel blessed to be creating for the incredible women who purchase, gift, and wear my work. I think of my customers as my friends; you are my people. Why? Because like you, I find I am often seeking a calm space in a world that sometimes moves a little too fast. I find that those drawn to my work are also drawn to the simple beauty found in natural forms.
I find inspiration not only in nature, but in symbolism, in the spirit of my gorgeous labradoodle, Tui, and in the people around me. Love fuels my work and my life. Much like you, I want to offer something back to the world. I want to bring joy, beauty, and kindness into everything I do. In my case, that’s through jewelry making. Jewelry is
incredibly personal. You wear it close to your skin, to your heart, and in each and every piece I make, I leave a little piece of my heart and soul.
Thank you for visiting my little corner of the web. Women all over the world have purchased my jewelry and for every share on social media and word-of-mouth recommendations, you are supporting a small, independent creative working to add a little beauty to the world.

Suzanne DeVeuve, value $200.00: Mystic art piece
About Suzanne: “To paint is to love again” a quote by Henry Miller, which has always moved me. It is a truth I live by literally. All the chaos and confusion in our daily lives can be quelled with the simple and profound act of presence. Creativity is a result of that presence. All my painting are stepping stones to my awakening awareness and the collective raising of consciousness. Especially in regards to the indigenous peoples of our planet, and the vast variety of animals, four-legged, creepy crawlers, winged ones and all the plans and trees that provide the oxygen for all of us. It is my intention that there works will feed and nurture our hearts and souls to have the strength and courage to love again and again, in joy and service of al life.

Monique Aguerre, value $65.00: Unique and one of a kind leather mask (This mask is currently in the making and you can see her creations)
I have delighted in creating artwork since I was a small child. I made my first mask at the age of six, an owl crafted from papier mache. I went on to explore my imagination through drawing, painting, photography, and dance, and have incorporated those disciplines into my current focus on mask making and costume design. I became fascinated by mask making as a student in the Depth Psychology graduate program at Sonoma State University. I found that masks are powerful tools for exploring the inner world of the psyche. They have the magical ability to bring hidden aspects of the Self to the surface where they may be seen and acknowledged. At the same time, the mask hides the persona, the face that we normally show the world. This provides the unique experience of being temporarily free from the habits and expectations of that identity.
In 2005 I began experimenting with the technique of wet-forming leather, and was instantly captivated by the sculptural possibilities of the material. There really is nothing else quite like it! I love the process of transformation that the leather goes through as I work with it: softened by water, dried by air and heat, the shapes emerge in an alchemical dance. As I learn more about my inner world through this work I feel inspired to share the experience with others. It is my wish to teach the art of mask making as a way to gain a deeper understanding of the Self. Through creating my own masks, I wish to share beauty, wonder, and mystery with the world. firstname.lastname@example.org

Chrystal Sunshine, Value $630.00: Title: Tourmaline Wings made from Sterling Silver, Copper, Blue Tourmaline (Indicolite)
This is a one-of-a-kind, artisan, hand-crafted necklace made by Chrystal Sunshine. The piece is a chasing and repoussé formed angels wings that feature a faceted blue tourmaline centerpiece and are surrounded by a unique handmade chain and s-hook clasp. Each part of this piece was constructed by the artist, by hand, using ancient metal smithing techniques. Natural oxidation of the copper and silver will occur.
About the process:
Chasing and repoussé is a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped, by hammering from the reverse side to create a design in low relief. The metal is annealed (softened with heat), placed in warmed pitch (natural tree resin) and hammered using a variety of punches and hand tools.
About Blue Tourmaline/Indicolite:
Blue Tourmaline is often used to enhance communication by enabling you to speak honestly and through the heart. It is a stone of compassion, and helps one to be more open-minded. Blue Tourmaline can open up communication with higher realms, and helps one find the cause of illness. By concentrating on the Third Eye, Blue Tourmaline can increase perception, intuition and psychic abilities. Like all Tourmalines, Blue Tourmaline is a metaphysically protective stone which is said to balance and harmonize the chakras. Physically, Blue Tourmaline eases insomnia and helps relieve problems associated with the eyes, throat, larynx, thyroid, adrenal and pituitary glands. It can also balance fluid in the body and eases bladder and kidney ailments.
*My hope is to create wearable works of art that serve the wearer as fashion accoutrements and also as objects of personal power. I hope this piece can connect its wearer to their own power of clarity, voice, strength, and light.*

Created for women that prize naturally glamorous beauty, Robindira’s elegant and very wearable seasonal jewelry collections are a subtle mix of textures, fine details and beautiful gemstones.
Robindira’s passion for design and fashion began at an early age, when she would spend her afternoons in her mother’s atelier in San Francisco sorting buttons, color coordinating her mother’s vast collection of fabrics, and exploring her vast jewelry collection. She began to dream of the day when she too would sparkle…
While not in her design studio or curating her store in Petaluma, California, Robindira can be found planting in her garden with her daughter India, or relaxing with her husband under their ancient wisteria vine.

THANK YOU PAULA MOULTON! WINE DONATION!
We want to thank Paula Moutlon for her contribution wine! Paula is donating Merlot, and Bordeaux Blends that has been gathered over a five year span. The wine was made for her late husband and is called Midnight Moulton, her husbands nickname, because he always made rounds on his orthopedic patients at midnight. He had endless energy and was so loved in Santa Rosa that they flew the flags at half mast (15,000 patients) after he was killed in a car accident on 116. This wine honors him.
