#CIJParty 2015 – Designer Wendy

Guest blog post by Wendy of WJoyDesigns

WJoyDesigns emerged out of a desire to simply design, (or manifest) simple joy back into my life.

WJoy Designs makes a variety of handcrafted candles, stained glass art, mosaic art and jewelry! From scented candles to stained glass ornaments and keepsakes, my original pieces make great gifts for any occasion.

I am inspired by nature and our world. Bright colors are a favorite design element in my work. When I choose supplies for my pieces,those are always my main sources of inspiration.

My workshop is in Reno, NV. It is a dream to be just a short drive from such majestic mountains, endless forests and beautiful Lake Tahoe!

Gigantic 2.68 LB. rainbow chunk square pillar candle scented in your choice! 9″ tall 3″ across. Smells AMAZING!! Such a bright and cheery candle to have in your home! Beautiful rainbow colors merge into one another in this scented rainbow square chunk pillar candle.

This candle is made in a 3 pour process, and has a core candle with the rainbow chunks set around it. This process creates a better quality, longer burning candle. Not sure of the total burning time, but I still have one that I light from time to time and its been with me for 11 yrs! Colors will vary slightly as each candle is hand made. Shown here unwrapped, it will come to you, wrapped in cello and tied with raffia/hemp cord.

This gorgeous rainbow candle would make a wonderful unity candle for a wedding, a great gift for a friend or loved one or a beautiful sentiment for a memorial service.

Chakra is the Sanskrit word for wheel. There are seven chakras in the body, located in a straight line with your spine; this line runs down the center of your body, from the top of your head to the base of your spine. Each chakra is an energy center and is represented with its unique color. Color meditation involves focusing on each of your chakras and their color vibration in order to bring about balance in your mind and body; promoting healing and peace of mind. Each of the chakras relates to the elements of Earth, air fire water, ether, spiritual awakening and enlightenment.

A magical iridescent green dragonfly encircled with a silver hoop! These earrings are sure to get rave reviews! Total length is 2 inches.

The dragonfly totem carries the wisdom of transformation and adaptability in life. As spirit animal, the dragonfly is connected to the symbolism of change and light. When the dragonfly shows up in your life, it may remind you to bring a bit more lightness and joy into your life. Those who have this animal as totem may be inclined to delve deep into their emotions and shine their true colors.

Iridescence is the property of an object to show itself in different colors depending on the angle and polarization of light falling on it.
This property is seen and believed as the end of one’s self created illusions and a clear vision into the realities of life. The magical property of iridescence is also associated with the discovery of one’s own abilities by unmasking the real self and removing the doubts one casts on his/her own sense of identity. This again indirectly means self discovery and removal of inhibitions.

A single ray of light contains the seven colors of the rainbow and so does the human spirit, which reveals itself through seven degrees of consciousness.

The seven color rays are spiritual forces emanating from the white light. They are perpetually vibrating – not only on the surface of the earth – but also above and through it, encircling the globe in streams of endless energy.

Rainbow Aura activates all the energy centers in the body, clearing a path for the Life Force to manifest throughout the subtle bodies, bringing in a vibrant energy and zest for life. It is particularly supportive for those in dysfunctional relationships, by letting one see what lies ahead and helping to release negative emotions such as resentment or grief. It brings deep insights into one’s relationships at all levels, and aids letting go of karmic ties that may be hindering relationships in the current life. This transformed relationship then becomes vital and harmonious. Rainbow Aura is a master healer for any condition, and is highly beneficial in multidimensional cellular memory healing. It is an efficient receptor for programming and bringing the body into balance

This highly polished rainbow aura point is rainbow-licious! It is iridescence to the maximum with rainbows emanating from every surface! Hand wirewrapped with silverplated wire and comes with a nickel free silver chain with lobster claw clasp. total length is 24 inches.

I work well into the wee hours. My days are longer than they were when I was working for somebody else. It is a labor of love though. That’s what makes it so meaningful.

Soar like the free spirit you truly are wearing this tribal feather headband! Comfy, soft, stretchy suede is braided and adorned with a variety of feathers in natural browns,iridescent green/black, rusty oranges and fluffy plum ostrich feathers. Each feather is accented with a brown wooden bead and there are espresso finished hand carved wooden beads on the longest feathers. Feathers can be moved to any position on the headband for a customized look to fit your mood! It is completely adjustable and closes with a sliding bead.

There is an eagle in me and a spotted bird hurrying corn to grow
The eagle flies to the mountains of my dreams,
flies to the corners of my distant hopes.
But the spotted bird stands among the cornstalks telling me to hoe.
My hands are the tools of my soul.
They make the drum,
the bow,
the flute,
and stretch the skin of the deer.
They work the earth and care for the sheep and plant the corn.
They greet my homeland each morning that I awake.
