Lina

Lina is literally a "rocket scientist" who has been studying many forms of paganism. She has a natural talent of making many spiritual tools. We are blessed to have her creations in our store. She makes Mala and Prayer Beads, astrological incense/herbal blends, ritual cords, jewelry, wands, as well as many other things.... each includes detailed information about the item, as well as instructions on ways you can use it. We are always thrilled when she visits with a bag full of more of her magic.

Matthew Sullivan, Remnants of Magic: http://www.remnantsofmagic.com 

Matthew Sullivan's gifted artistry and writings has led him on a journey of self discovery. His intuitive powers invoked him to be a gatherer of unique stones, which he is compelled to share with the world. He has been guided to bring forth his collection of unique wire wrapped jewelry, Crystal wands, Energy Sprays, healing pictures and other creations.

Matthew has the ability to connect with the uniqueness of each stone and the beauty all around him, creating stunning works of art, which stir the mind and heal the soul. Infusing each of his creations with love and positive energy so as to help others face their daily struggles with renewed faith. 

You will find some of his pieces for sale in the store every day, and once a month on a Saturday he sets up a trunk show here, bringing his latest one-of-a-kind beautiful creations for you! Check the calendar for dates.

Melissa (Serephina):  www.melissasuejones.com

Melissa​ ​aka​ ​Serephina​ ​has​ ​a​ ​Bachelor​ ​of​ ​Fine​ ​arts​ ​and​ ​a​ ​Master​ ​of​ ​Information​ ​Technology.​​​ ​She enjoys creating​ ​in​ ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​mediums​ ​and​ ​has​ ​fallen​ ​in​ ​love​ ​with​ ​Art​ ​Glass.​​​ ​She​ ​lives​ ​in​ ​Northern Virginia​ ​with​ ​her​ ​two​ ​furbabies​ ​and​ ​dreams of having​ ​house​ ​so​ ​she​ ​can​ ​buy​ ​and​ ​plug​ ​in​ ​more kilns. 

Serephina is also the artist who designed the Sticks and Stones logo back in 2008!

Kiln​ ​formed​ ​glass​ ​is​ ​created​ ​by​ ​taking​ ​sheets​ ​of​ ​glass​ ​or​ ​crushed​ ​glass​ ​and​ ​combining​ ​them together​ ​in​ ​the​ ​kiln,​ ​which​ ​is​ ​fired​ ​up​ ​to​ ​1700​ ​degrees. ​Most​ ​pieces​ ​are​ ​fired​ ​2-3​ ​times​ ​for​ ​12-36 hours​ ​in​ ​the​ ​kiln. Pieces​ ​such​ ​as​ ​some​ ​of​ ​the​ ​jewelry​ ​are​ ​then​ ​cut​ ​out​ ​with​ ​a​ ​diamond​ ​saw​ ​blade​ ​and​ ​then​ ​further shaped​ ​by​ ​a​ ​wet​ ​belt​ ​sander​ ​and​ ​then​ ​back​ ​in​ ​the​ ​kiln​ ​again​ ​for​ ​a​ ​fire​ ​polish​ ​to​ ​make​ ​it​ ​smooth and​ ​shiny. Luminescent​ ​Tea​ ​Light​ ​Holders​ ​are​ ​made​ ​from​ ​a​ ​single​ ​layer​ ​of​ ​3mm​ ​glass​ ​and​ ​fired​ ​twice.​ ​The double​ ​holders​ ​are​ ​Faery​ ​Waves​ ​and​ ​Faery​ ​Trees. The​ ​Rose​ ​Petal​ ​Dish​ ​and​ ​Shell​ ​Dish​ ​are​ ​made​ ​with​ ​both​ ​sheet​ ​glass​ ​and​ ​crushed​ ​glass​ ​and​ ​take advantage​ ​of​ ​the​ ​chemical​ ​reactions​ ​between​ ​the​ ​glasses​ ​that​ ​contain​ ​different​ ​elements​ ​such as​ ​Copper​ ​and​ ​Sulfur. The​ ​Bear​ ​Fetishes,​ ​Tear​ ​Drops,​ ​Diamonds,​ ​and​ ​Hearts​ ​are​ ​created​ ​in​ ​a​ ​mold​ ​in​ ​a​ ​single​ ​firing and​ ​have​ ​bails​ ​that​ ​are​ ​plated​ ​in​ ​real​ ​Silver.​ ​​ ​Each​ ​one​ ​is​ ​unique​ ​with​ ​the​ ​exception​ ​of​ ​the​ ​single color​ ​ones. The​ ​Sushi​ ​Sets​ ​and​ ​small​ ​dishes​ ​are​ ​made​ ​from​ ​2​ ​layers​ ​of​ ​glass​ ​and​ ​are​ ​fired​ ​twice. The​ ​6.5”​ ​ruffle​ ​bowls​ ​are​ ​made​ ​of​ ​two​ ​layers​ ​of​ ​glass​ ​and​ ​fired​ ​twice. Items​ ​featured​ ​in​ ​Sticks​ ​and​ ​Stones​ ​will​ ​not​ ​be​ ​sold​ ​on​ ​her​ ​website. Please​ ​care​ ​for​ ​your​ ​handcrafted​ ​glass​ ​by​ ​hand-washing.​ ​​All​ ​dishes​ ​are​ ​food​ ​safe​ ​unless​ otherwise ​labeled.​ ​​ ​

Stephanie: https://eagletherapies.com/

Stephanie is an ecclectic pagan and Shamanic Practitioner that has been leading/volunteering at events, ceremonies, and rituals since 2008. Her studies and trainings include Sandra Ingerman, Mary Tyrtle Rooker, and Christina Pratt. She has been versed in the world of spirit from a very young age, and brings that element of experience to the events she helps hold. A woman of many hats, she enjoys leading drum circles, being a labyrinth walk facilitator, meditation coordinator, 

holistic aromatherapist, sound healer, and many more things. Happiness and joy are things that tend to be contagious around this woman as she manages to get a smile out of anyone who gives their attention to her. 

All of these traits woven together, she compiles them to help form communities and maintain them. Being someone who knows wha

t isolation feels like, she strives to connect people together so we don't have to practice in the dark. Now is the time for us to step up to who we really are, and she firmly believes the power and gift of community is a strong one that should be nurtured. 

Vic's Sticks:

I believe that the world on which we live is a magical place. There are forces at work constantly creating beauty and wonder. It is up to us as individuals to open our eyes, minds, and hearts to them, so that they may lead us the beauty that is all around us.

Many are so entrenched in their daily mundane routines, that they never stop to look at the stand of trees at the end of their street. Were they to do so, they might see the branches and limbs that have been bent by the wind, and broken by a storm, that when viewed from the right angle form the shape of a horse galloping.

I’ve been allowed to see some of these wonders, and to bring certain pieces out for the rest of the world to see. I also know that each item is calling to the person who is meant to have them. I also know that each piece has a story to tell, and that when it finds who it was meant for, they will hear it.

Wyrd Armouries: https:/wyrdarmouries.com

We are honored to display these hand made athames by Nathaniel Wilson of Wyrd Armouries.

Wyrd Armouries came about in 2015 as the joint name for collaborative works between Wyrd and Wired and MalHaunch Armouries. We started working shows together in early 2014, but had each had been out there being creative for years before that. Between the two of us, we have over 25 years of various experience making and selling unique handcrafted goods. If you can dream it, chances are one of us can make it!

Cynthia Abernathy is also a costumer and leather worker, and also makes jewelry made from old books and game pieces. Nathaniel Wilson is a blacksmith, as well as creator of prop weapons and other oddities.

With enough random skills for a medieval village, together we create unique work to adorn and amuse. You can find us at media conventions, renaissance faires, pagan festivals and craft shows along the east coast. 

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~)O(~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

We have been called many names!
Metaphysical, New Age, Gift Shop, Hippie, Earthy, Tree-Hugger, Spiritual, Goddess,
Celtic, Pagan, Witch, Wicca, Wise Women, just to name a few...
Native Americans, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Pagans, Hinduists, and  Celts... all use affirmations, prayers, rituals and magic in their daily pratices. Imagine a connection (similar to a web) through invisible threads, all of which are connected with each other. Any wind, or any vibration on that web, will make waves that will influence the whole. This is how the Spirit works, and this is the magical tradition behind all religions. The Spirit is very powerful.

Sticks and Stones respects every person's own spiritual path and invites you to share and learn with us. 

...No matter what you call us, if you intend no harm you are welcome in our circle.
