Bespoke Creations at MaxineFaye

Bespoke Creations

Bringing your ideas to life

With the help of internet technology such as Zoom, SMS, Messenger and WhatsApp you can design the perfect bespoke piece from anywhere in Australia.

This customer had seen a turtle charm bracelet I had on my social media pages and loved it.  As it had already been sold I showed her a couple of other turtle charms and beads I had that she may like and she fell in love with the Paua shell and Sterling Silver style in this photo.

Years ago she had a favourite necklace in little blue and white beads that she wanted to replicate and add the turtle charm to.

Customer Briefing

Discuss colours, style and other design ideas

During our conversations the customer advises me of the colours she liked, what sort of beads or look she was after, the length of the piece and other things relevant to the design.

With this information I sent photos of beads and materials I have in stock that might fit her descriptions and she could narrow her choice down.

I had several beads that fitted her description and added a few more that picked out the colours in the Paua shell and she developed the mixes she was most interested in.

Trialling Patterns

It's time to get into the pattern design phase.

This is where I make up several “dummy” strands in different patterns using the bead mixes the customer has short listed.

Once I have a few of these samples made I send them via her preferred communication method for her to let me know the elements she likes or dislikes.

A few little tweaks and another set of bespoke “dummies” are sent across the internet.

Sometimes I may send a design out of left field just as an idea to develop on.

The Finished Product

Ready to send anywhere in Australia

A selection of colours within the customers bespoke brief

This pretty set comprises of matching necklace and bracelet, both with extension chains allowing the sizing to be adjusted as needs be or for them to be joined together to form a longer necklace.

The Paua turtle charms can be added or removed easily and as a bonus can also be threaded on large sleepers for earrings.

Feel free to contact me for more information and to discuss your design ideas.

Bespoke or custom-made jewellery make lovely gift ideas and are perfect for that special occasion. 

The Initial Consultation is Free and you are under no obligation to continue with the design.

All costs will be quoted on before you commit to the project and you will be asked to confirm your acceptance of the costs and the design in writing.

I hope you enjoyed this post!

Most of my designs are one-of-a-kind, which means I only make one of each style so to remove the risk of a piece being sold both at an online Market and on the Website, I have currently removed this piece from my online store…but it maybe still available so either join the groups listed below for some special and often discounted sales or message me to make it yours.

Contact me to see if it is still available, or if I am able to make something similar.

If the piece in question was just what you had been looking for, you may be in luck.

Depending on the piece in question, I may be able to make something similar – to suit your requirements, but this will depend on the  availability of the components used.

As my Original Designs are one-of-a-kind (OOAK) and often use one-of-a-kind or limited edition beads and stones, I am not always able to duplicate them and due to the handmade nature of my designs and the individual character of most gemstone, crystal, mineral, lamp-worked or handmade glass the design will never be exactly the same.

I look forward to hearing from you with any requests.

4 Ways to Spoil Mum

On Mother's Day

Happy Mothers Day

“Motherhood is the biggest gamble in the world. It is the glorious life force. It’s huge and scary – it’s an act of infinite optimism.” — Gilda Radner

Serenity chrysocolla, quartz and sterling silver bracelet @MaxineFaye

Are you looking for beautiful beaded jewellery which has been designed and crafted
with care & attention by an award winning artisan?  Designs you know you won’t see anywhere else.  All my designs (other than Bespoke work) are one-of-a-kind (OOAK), so you can be confident knowing your Mum will be the proud owner of an original design.

CustomMade set @MaxineFaye

Do you want something exquisite for Mum’s special gift?
Don’t have the time to run all over town looking for it?

If you have a special piece in mind, contact me to arrange the design using her favourite colours and beads and then sit back and relax.

Pearl necklace repair

Give your Mum’s old pieces of damaged or out-dated jewellery a new lease on life.  I can repair or remodel them and she will be able to enjoy wearing them again.

Or does she want to remodel a tired design?  Does she have some wonderful ideas of what she would like, but not sure how to go about it?  

Contact me and give her a wonderful surprise.

Mothers Day Gift Voucher

Still not really sure of what to get.  Gift Certificates are a great gift giving idea.  They enable your Mum to purchase a design she loves.  Or she may wish to participate in a class or make an appointment to arrange a bespoke design of her own.

The Gift Voucher is valid for 3 years (36 months) therefore your Mum has plenty of time to decide how she wishes to use it.

Choose between a gift certificate printed on card with a matching envelope which can be posted either to you or directly to your Mum 
OR 
you can have a gift certificate created like the one in the picture that can be emailed.  Again, it can be emailed to you to pop into a card, or directly to your Mum if you have left things to the last minute.

Gold

More metaphysical properties of this colour

More gold colour properties

Gold

This is a follow-on post from an earlier series on the Metaphysical Properties of Colour.

As we look a bit deeper into the Properties of Colour, you may find reading these first, or at least referring to them will help you understand what I am talking about in this post.

How can we benefit from this colour?

This is a follow-on post from an earlier post on the Metaphysical Properties of Gold.  It is from a series of posts about Colour Properties.

You may find reading these first, or at least referring to them will help you understand what I am talking about in this post.

Gold energy brings with it enlightenment and deep joy.  Using this colour we can tap into our innate understanding and our rightful  happiness.

Gold in its purest form can show us our True Aura,  remind us that we are evolved souls and provides the alchemy to enable us to fulfill our purpose.

 

Gold spiritual statue, religious, peaceful, healing hands

How can the lessons be addressed?

If we have feelings of self-righteousness or become judgemental, it may be from an abundance of Gold energy. Gold energy can be debased and addictive. Meditation and tuning into our inner wisdom is one way we can retain our power!  The metal Gold can be taken back to its purest form, and we too can reconnect to the ecstasy of our original source.

An excess of Gold energy can bring confusion or lack of trust. It may raise security issues where we feel fearful and not safe.  In this case, introducing some blue may allay fears and frustration and bring peace and trust.

An affirmation to say each day is

“I am valued”

As with other things we often hear people say “fake it until you make it” and this could apply to the affirmations. You may not feel valued on day 1, but stay with it and with repetition you will feel the value and respect that you desire.

Chakra and Physical areas associated with Gold

If any of these areas or conditions listed under the Chakra and Physical areas are causing concern, you can look at using pieces of Gold, Pyrite or golden coloured crystals. Small pieces can be worn as jewellery, carried in your pocket or use larger specimens in your office or bedroom.

Clothing is another easy way to benefit from the energy of colour. Don’t wear Gold? Wear Gold coloured underwear or socks if you need confidence or courage – and no-one will know.

Although there are not many naturally occurring foods available for Gold – you could eat of a golden plate, sip from gold patterned glassware or use gold utensils to bring the intent of this colour to mind.

Quick Tip 1

A quick tip for threading beads with small holes.

Lay your thread on a board and using a sharp flat blade held at an angle drag the blade firmly but not too hard away from you.

(I used a cutting board and a small paring knife – but forgot to take a picture of that part of the process).

Continue this action and you will end up with a bundle of threads that have been “shaved” off the original cord and a thinner and irregular end to the original thread.

Add Your Favourite Glue

At this stage drip some of your favourite bead glue along the length of the thinned section.

(I used Hypo-Cement) 

Do The Twist

Remember to turn the same direction as the original thread.

Working in the same direction as the original cord, twist the glued ends around each other until you end up with a fine point.
 
Allow to dry (and harden). It is now ready for threading through those pesky little holes in beads like pearls and some gemstones.

Metaphysical Properties: Colour

Bringing balance to our lives

colour attributes MaxineFaye

Using Colour, in any form, may benefit your physical, mental psychological or spiritual state.  Colour properties influence our choices every day – mostly without us even knowing – we even talk in colour  (“I’m feeling blue”, “He has a yellow streak”, and “She was green with envy”).

Find out more about your favourite (or least favourite) colour, the strengths, needs, affirmations, chakras and stones associated with it, by clicking on previous posts where I have touched on the “Headlines” of each colour’s properties.  I have looked at affirmations that may be suitable if you are having issues with an essence of each colour and ways we may address the lessons of each colour.

Over the next months I’ll look at other aspects of each colour properties and go into more depth of what each of these “Headline” subjects was about.  We will eventually look at the chakra each colour is associated with and touch on the Tarot Cards linked to the colour properties.

The following colour tiles will link to the posts as they are published, so bookmark this page for future reference.

More green colour properties

More blue colour properties
More royal blue colour properties
More violet colour properties
More magenta colour properties
More deep magenta colour properties
More clear colour properties

There are no “Good” or “Bad” colours. They each contain both sides of the same coin.  As in Yin / Yang Philosophy, each colour exist as inseparable and contradictory opposites, for example female-male, dark-light and old-young.  In Red, the property that drives anger is the same property that can be channelled into extra energy and drive.  It is all in how the property is utilised.

Each colour sits on the colour wheel in a particular position and its opposite can be used as an “Antidote” for some of the issues.  Lets take Red again.  If you are feeling over-stimulated by its energy, then Green sitting opposite can be used to calm the situation.”

How does this work in real life?

Lets look at a situation where you are getting wound up and things are getting heated or aggressive.  Green represents space and is calming.  To use the “Antidote” you could take a break and connect with nature.  Hug a tree, sit on the grass and remember to breathe as the lungs and respiratory system also fall under Green.

If the situation is ongoing and difficult to bear.  Use one of the recommended stones/crystals for their protective or stimulative effects.

Some easy ways to use each colour properties are:-

Dress in it.  Underwear and socks are an easy way of using colours you wouldn’t usually wear.

Eat it.  Make a salad of your required coloured vegetables or fruits.

Drink it.  Put your water in a coloured bottle and let it sit in the light.  Put one of the suggested stones into a jug of water and let it sit.  Drink the water.  Ensure your stone is clean and doesn’t contain toxins.

Bathe in it.  Put flowers or crystals etc of your chosen colour into your bath.

Surround yourself with it.  Paint your room.  Add accessories.

Wear it.  Use jewellery to add the colours you require.  Double up on this by using Gemstone and Crystal jewellery to get the Metaphysical benefits of the colour and the properties of the stone.

Orange

More metaphysical properties of this colour

More orange colour properties

Orange

This is a follow-on post from an earlier series on the Metaphysical Properties of Colour.

As we look a bit deeper into the Properties of Colour, you may find reading these first, or at least referring to them will help you understand what I am talking about in this post.

How can we benefit from this colour?

To me, the flame of a campfire is symbolic of the colour orange. The enthusiasm and vitality of the flame dancing on the wood sparks gregarious and creative connections in the group. Think of all the fun times had around a communal fire and as the flame settles is seems hypnotic and provides a focal point. Staring at the flame appears relaxing and meditational and allows you to connect to your being. It enables you to settle into yourself and gain deep insight into your aspirations or life purpose.

The duality of orange can also be represented by a flame, but this time of a raging bushfire. The indecision of what to do when warned, then the hysteria and fear during the approach followed by the aftermath of melancholy and disappointment at what was lost and this trauma can stay and cause one to be stuck in the past and lead to a lack of confidence and not knowing how to move forward. This lack of self-worth can attribute to co-dependency issues or addictions.

After a bushfire though, especially in Australia, the bush rejuvenates. This natural occurrence is full of promise and brings forth optimism for the future.

Orange is associated with the lower abdomen or Sacral Chakra. This is from where we get our gut feelings or inner wisdom. It is also the site of our deepest feelings of bliss or rapture.

orange sunflower More colour properties of orange

How can these lessons be addressed?

People under the Orange energy may suffer from a lack of trust (in others and themselves). They may be indecisive and lack confidence. A lesson from Orange is to connect. To connect in a positive manner, not as a co-dependant.

Connecting or re-connecting to a group, community or cause enables them to move on from the past and regain their confidence. This, in turn, can reignite their enthusiasm and optimism.

An affirmation to say each day is

“I am breaking through my barriers"

Of course, this won’t happen just by saying it once off. Each and every time you feel unworthy or stuck in the past, just focus on the affirmation of your choice.

Chakra and Physical areas associated with Orange

The physical areas associated with Orange are the lower abdomen, kidneys, bladder, colon, spleen, abdomen, lower back, reproductive systems and sexuality. Puberty is also associated with Orange.

Menopause and hormonal changes may be assisted with Orange as can the absorption or digestion of food, balancing the acidity of the body and assisting with food cravings – to be disciplined not denied.

Orange sits in the Sacral Chakra (slightly above the genital area.

If any of the areas or conditions listed under the Chakra and Physical areas of the original post are causing concern, you can look at using the suggested crystals in their Orange form. Small pieces can be carried in your pocket or use larger specimens in your office or bedroom.

tumbled orange carnelian gemstones

Clothing is another easy way to benefit from the energy of colour.  Orange isn’t your favourite colour?   Use socks or underwear in this colour as a great way of reminding yourself that you are connected and have confidence – and no-one will know.

If that doesn’t suit you, how about orange sheets (or just the pillowcase) or bathe in bath-salts in this vibrant colour or drink an Orange juice, eat a Mandarin.   All these things will just hold your attention and remind you that you are on a journey to reconnect.

Red

More red colour properties

Red

This is a follow-on post from an earlier series on the Metaphysical Properties of Colour.

As we look a bit deeper into the Properties of Colour, you may find reading these first, or at least referring to them will help you understand what I am talking about in this post.

How can we benefit from this colour?

This is a follow-on post from an earlier post on the Metaphysical Properties of Red.  It is from a series of posts about Colour Properties.

You may find reading these first, or at least referring to them will help you understand what I am talking about in this post

Let’s start with the obvious. Red is the colour of blood. Without blood, a person cannot survive. Our blood provides us with oxygen and through our bodily reactions gives us the strength and vitality we need to function.

The survival issues mentioned as one of the Red properties refer to being able to provide food, shelter and clothing – again, without these items we couldn’t survive….or not for long.

This colour is associated with the Base or Root chakra which connects us to Earth and provides grounding. When you are feeling light-headed or have a foggy mind, it may be that you need to become more grounded. This chakra contains the genitalia and sexual drive needed for reproduction.

Red is considered the colour of enthusiasm and “get-up and go” which is why it is often suggested as a colour to wear when you wish to be within your power. It is a great colour to surround yourself with if you need energy, concentration or courage.

The colour of action and movement, it is often (maybe in jest) – stated that red cars go faster. It is a colour that suggests passion, courage and daring. Bull fighter’s and Superhero’s capes are an example of the use of this colour to convey the message. Red roses are given to loved ones and dates such as Valentine’s Day are marketed around the colour red from lingerie to chocolates.

Red also suggests anger and when believed righteous, can be the motivation for change.

It is presumed a rock has no consciousness. It is neither aware of itself nor other items around it or how they may interact together. As we gain more awareness of ourselves, our surroundings and the suggestion of The Divine or Universal Consciousness, it is said we are awakening.

red dress kisses umbrella

How can the lessons be addressed?

If we have feelings of resentment, frustration, anger, disappointment or aggression, there is generally an abundance of Red energy. It is said we are hot under the collar. It is during these times that we should STOP and breathe…. This way we retain our power! Otherwise we become out of control.

When it is difficult to provide the material things needed to enjoy life or in some cases just to survive, we can become embarrassed of our situation and feel separated from our friends and loved ones or worse from Spirit. We may show competitive or materialistic behaviours. During these times, we need to find a way of grounding ourselves and reconnecting.

An affirmation to say each day is

“I am in my power”

As with other things we often hear people say “fake it until you make it” and this could apply to the affirmations. You may not feel in your power on day 1, but stay with it and with repetition you will feel the connectedness and awakening that you desire.

Chakra and Physical areas associated with Red

If any of these areas or conditions listed under the Chakra and Physical areas are causing concern, you can look at using the suggested crystals in their red form. Small pieces can be carried in your pocket or use larger specimens in your office or bedroom.

Clothing is another easy way to benefit from the energy of colour. Don’t wear Red? Use red socks if you need grounding or have week circulation. Underwear is a great way of stimulating under-active conditions – and no-one will know.

Food is a great source of Red –  Red meat, berries, beetroots, radishes all assist the blood and provide energy.

Is your concern that you have too much energy or passion, or are easily angered? You may find using the opposite colour to be effective. Green sits opposite red on the colour wheel. You can check out the Properties of Green here.

Pink

More metaphysical properties of colour

More pink colour properties

Pink

This is a follow-on post from an earlier series on the Metaphysical Properties of Colour.

As we look a bit deeper into the Properties of Colour, you may find reading these first, or at least referring to them will help you understand what I am talking about in this post.

How can we benefit from this colour?

Pink allows us to respond to situations from a place of love and trust, not react to them from a fear based place.  Hate and discrimination are emotions born from fear.  Fear of the unknown or unfamiliar.  Fear that someone will have more, get there first, look different or even be liked more than us.

Fear and Love are the two base emotions.  If we don’t love it, it is because there is an element of fear and if we don’t fear it, it is because we can come from a place of unconditional love.

Although unconditional love sits in this beautiful pink colour, it is not always soft and never a push-over.  Think of your mum.  She will love you whatever you do, but she may not always like your behaviour, and she will bring you back into line when need be.

Whilst conditional love revolves around some form of exchange or something you get from another – (an emotion or feeling) unconditional love is an action, given freely, no matter what – and from that action, you reward yourself with the emotion or feeling.  Unconditional love is treating the person like you would like to be treated in that situation.

It is not being a door-mat and letting people walk all over you.  The unconditional love in Pink is also for us.  Accept those love handles, be aware of our faults.  It doesn’t mean we have to like them and that we can’t work towards improving our weaknesses, it just means that while we are in the process of improvement, we are still worthy of our own and others love.

Pink is kind, considerate and caring.  It enables us, and others to show our vulnerability. To let our tough exterior fade and to receive the love and compassion that we yearn for.  It is not a sign of weakness but of strength.  It’s having the courage to show others the softer side of us when we have no control of the outcome.

pink flowers More colour properties of pink

How can these lessons be addressed?

If we feel the only way we can be loved is conditional, then we may do anything to get that love.  This can then cause guilt, shame and lack of respect for our own actions and that of others.  This is one of the lessons of pink.

There is a thought that dogs want attention and will do nearly anything to get it.  Even “bad” attention is still attention in their eyes….at least someone is focused on them at that time.  In their mind it is preferable to be growled at and in trouble for chewing the chair, etc, than to be ignored.

We have similar requirements when we feel unloved and may partake in high risk actions or inappropriate behaviours just to feel accepted and loved, even if momentarily.

Physically, the ears are associated with pink and although there may be no hearing loss as such, we may feel unheard or not listened to.  We may believe our feelings are not validated or taken seriously.  We may even have closed off ourselves and not be willing to listen to our own needs, dreams and desires or that of others.    There is a need for Pink to be heard.

Give yourself some quiet time to listen to your own needs.  Make a journal of the issues or solutions that you wish to pay attention to.  Listen to others “in the moment”.  Just listen.  Paraphrase if you must to make sure you understand what they are saying / where they are coming from /what their needs are.  Remember to use the energy of Pink to be respectful and respond to your / their needs, instead of reacting.  This may take some time to develop, so be gentle with yourself and your newfound vulnerability.

An affirmation to say each day is

"I am Loveable"

Of course, this won’t happen just by saying it once off. Each and every time you feel unworthy or stuck in the past, just focus on the affirmation of your choice.

Chakra and Physical areas associated with Pink

If any of these areas or conditions listed under the Chakra and Physical areas of the original post, are causing concern, you can look at using the suggested crystals in their Pink form. Small pieces can be carried in your pocket or use larger specimens in your office or bedroom.  Rose Quartz in particular is known as the stone for unconditional love and is such a gentle, yet powerful energy.

pink crystal More colour properties of pink

Clothing is another easy way to benefit from the energy of colour. Can’t bring yourself to be seen in Pink? Use Pink socks or underwear as a great way of reminding yourself that you are both loved and loving– and no-one will know.

If that doesn’t suit you, how about pink sheets (or just the pillowcase) or bathe in pink bath-salts.  Drink a pink smoothie, eat some watermelon.  All these things will just hold your attention and remind you that you are on a journey to recapture your feelings of being loved unconditionally – by yourself, others and the universe.

Coral

More metaphysical properties of this colour

More coral colour properties

This is a follow-on post from an earlier series on the Metaphysical Properties of Colour.

As we look a bit deeper into the Properties of Colour, you may find reading these first, or at least referring to them will help you understand what I am talking about in this post.

Coral

Coral demonstrates the ancient wisdom of mother nature.  This represents not learned knowledge (which is in an upcoming post), but wisdom past down through the ages.

The colour Coral, like the reef, is sensitive to its environment.  People who relate to this colour are generally open-minded and acknowledge the wisdom of ancient cultures.  They have the ability to develop higher intuition.

How can the lessons be addressed?

People under the Coral energy can be clingy and have a need to belong.  They can have dependency issues if they feel that the love they are giving is not being returned how they had expected.  A lesson can be that Coral may need to be needed.

If they have been hurt or abused they may push everyone away and become isolated.  When in this state, they can show little regard to their own wellbeing or self care.

Awakening their imagination and encouraging creativity can be a way to express their love and reconnect to their soul-group.

An affirmation to say each day is

"The love I give is freely returned”

Of course this will not happen just by saying it once off, but each time you feel that you don’t belong or are not loved as you wish, just focus on the affirmation of your choice.

Chakra and Physical areas associated with Coral

The physical areas associated the bridging of the “yellow” and “pink“ together in Coral are the colon – and absorption of both toxins or nourishment.

It can connect to the bones / skeleton. Coral sits in the pelvic area and can enhance sensuality and stimulate the senses.

If you suffer from IBS, constipation or malabsorption conditions you may find this colour brings you relief.

Calcite is very beneficial for cleansing organs and supporting bones and may be useful in this case.

If any of these areas or conditions listed under the Chakra and Physical areas of the original post, are causing concern, you can look at using the suggested crystals in Coral (or stones in their Pink or Orange form). Small pieces can be carried in your pocket or use larger specimens in your office or bedroom.

Clothing is another easy way to benefit from the energy of colour. Coral isn’t your favourite colour? Use socks or underwear in this colour as a great way of reminding yourself that you belong and are loved– and no-one will know.

If that doesn’t suit you, how about coral sheets (or just the pillowcase) or bathe in bath-salts in this soft colour (or a mixture of pink and orange).  Drink a mango smoothie, eat some salmon.  All these things will just hold your attention and remind you that you are on a journey to reconnect to the love-wisdom ray.

Unakite

Unakite can assist with better sleep and will also help to relieve stress.
It can bring your emotions and spiritual aspects into balance and assist when dealing with addictive behaviours.

A metamorphic rock, Unakite is formed from granite. Heated reactive fluids passing through the granite replace some of their original minerals with epidote.  While generally leaving the pink coloured feldspar and greyish-clear quartz unaffected, this process adds the green of the epidote. This process is called metasomatism. ⁠

Metasomatic rocks can be extremely varied and often a microscope is required to recognise the altered state depending on the source of fluid in the reaction.

Looking like green granite, Unakite distinctly demonstrates this change and is reasonably easy to identify.
