Ladies and Gentlemen, I have the pleasure of introducing to you the amazing pair of artists that power Spiral Hawk Studio, Rachel and Daryl. I found this lovely shop through etsy teams and was very graciously given a beautiful art print that hangs in my ritual space. I asked if they would be interested in appearing here and am very excited to share more about them.
Oh, and if you read all the way to the bottom there may be a RaffleCopter form for a mini-giveaway here and an automatic entry into their giveaway at 100 likes on facebook!

Q: What got you into your work here on etsy?A: We had been urged onto the internet by friends and family; previously we had simply set up tables at our local flea market and at random local shows. We found Etsy to be pretty much perfect for us as an outlet for the things we make to find a home!
Q: What is your favorite part of the etsy selling experience?A: The Etsy selling experience has been fun! We have shipped orders to France, the UK, Germany, Canada, Poland, and every region of the USA. We never would have reached these customers with a local shop! And being able to follow up, get feedback from your customers and answer any questions they have after the transaction lets you really connect with people as the the maker of the item and the user of the item.

Q: What's so important about what you make and how you choose to make it?A: Ritual tools such as wands and personal stones, staffs and jewelry made with various semiprecious stones are not usually easily accessible. Even with the information age and the internet, it can be hard to find tools etc that are affordable. We mine the minerals we use ourselves whenever possible and harvest our own materials (wood, shed antlers, etc). We are Eclectic and prefer not to label ourselves as belonging to any one Religious Group. We have deep spiritual connections to the Earth and Nature; we're shamanistic in our rituals and methods of thinking, and this comes through in the things that we make.

Q: Which piece is your favorite to make?A: I really enjoy making wands. Each piece is made from wood that I harvest myself with reverence and respect; each crystal is hand-picked for each particular wand. And carving, to me, really puts a piece of YOU into what you're making.
