For those who are not familiar with Bijouterie (which means jewelry shop in french), Bijouterie is a little shop located in Tavernier, Florida which features handcrafted jewelry by Susan Goracy, who studied interior design.
But Susan is also into natural stuff so she carries natural handcrafted products by little indie crafters like myself. She already sells a good selection of my teas but she will also soon carry my Nomadic Perfumes :).
Here's what she said about my products in her latest newsletter: "These Nomadic Perfumes are truly EXOTIC, as well as "All Natural" made of extra virgin sweet almond oil, beeswax, and fragrance oils. Watch for these exotic scents arrivingfor April: Amber (amber, vanilla, patchouli, sandalwood, musk); Moonlight Shadow (sensual floral blend of lavender, rose, violet, musk); Spellbound Woods - my favorite (amber, sandalwood, vanilla, cedarwood, hint of flowers); Chocolate Decadence (fresh citrus layered over a rich dreamy middle of hot dense chocolate, and cocoa melded with a base of sexy musk & sandalwood - sounds like something to eat, doesn't it?!); Vanilla des Isles (African vanilla beans, sandalwood, shredded coconut, delicate white flowers); Black Amber (rustic amber, Parisian lavender, mysterious black myrrh, vanilla ,Tonka bean, Egyptian musk, clary sage).
Samples of Moonlight Shadow & Spellbound Woods are available to try! Natura Botanica also offers Sacred Oils in a small variety of scents used as massage oils, for rituals, on face & body, or for meditation. If you're interestedin trying, contact me for more info & to order.
Another exciting addition to Alchemille's Garden are Astrological Teas, available by custom order in the Astrological sign of your choice(s). This makes an interesting gift for a unique friend!"
Susan will be at the Goddesses in the Garden Party raising fun and funds for Breast Cancer on Sunday, April 29, 2007 in Key Largo. She will be donating 35-40% of sales made that day to the Breast Cancer Fund. So I invite you to come out and support a very worthwhile cause!
Susan's shop "Bijouterie" is located on 91495 Overseas Highway in Tavernier, FL 33070 .

As promised here’s the first newsletter regarding the Wild and Wise Collective featuring Etsy crafters and artists who share an interest and passion for everything natural. There are currently 21 members, including myself with different specialties ranging from teas, to body care, jewelry, pottery, natural household products, paper and even natural home decoration. Here's a little introduction to the products we make and that you can find at our shops:
*Three Ravens*: Xiane makes organic herbal products for bath and body as well as perfumed tinctures and natural incense.
*Whimsy Hollow*: Piper makes luscious natural, botanical and magical products such as soaps, lip balms, candles and wonderful perfume oils.
*Tea and Cauldron*: Raven blends herbal teas the old fashioned way. She has afternoon teas, healing/nourishing teas and even some to chase annoying gremlins out of your house.
*Awesome Art*: Griselda is a talented artist who paint and makes incredible shamanic dolls.
And of course...:)
I make artisan tea blends as well as natural and herbal body care items inspired by Fairies and Bellydance. I soon hope to add bulk herbs, seeds, natural candles and some art pieces.
If you wish to know more about the Wild and Wise Collective, its members and their shops, please go to (click on the names to be redirected to the shops):
To celebrate the Spring, some of us have concocted new and exclusive creations that can be seen on Etsy http://www.etsy.com/index.php . Just search for tags and descriptions with “twwc” and “spring creation”.
Blessings and thank you for your support.
