It’s my favourite time of year, when adults can ask each other, “what are you going to be?” We don’t have many trick-or-treaters where I live, but I stock up on candy anyway. As the veil thins, we honour our ancestors but also indulge in other delights– I always share some with them on my altar.
How are you celebrating this Samhain or Halloween?
It’s here! Octoberfest/Oktoberfest at feralstrumpet.co.uk and Feralstrumpet on Etsy. I’m offering 25% off all my craft beer inspired jewellery during the first week of October. No need for a coupon– starting on Oct. 1st at midnight GMT, the prices will be marked down on the site.
My craft beer jewellery makes a great gift for the brewer or ale lover in your life! I have gradually expanded my beer-inspired designs over the years, as the Beer Chick Necklace became a best seller. I have long been a home brewer and craft beer aficionado as well as a judge at the York beer festival and a one-time member of the British Guild of Beer Writers. My passion for beer and brewing as well as jewellery design drove me to create wearable, elegant every day pieces that celebrate the love of this ancient beverage.
This offer is a celebration of the longevity of these designs and a thank you to all the beer lovers and brewers who have supported me over the years. Cheers!
The big news this month is I’m having a giveaway to celebrate the lovely customers I have who are American Tribal Style® Bellydancers. There are a lot of them– you know who you are. For the past three years I’ve had the honour to be an official ATS® FCBD® Sister Studio, and when I’m not making jewellery, I’m teaching and performing this beautiful style of contemporary, improvised group dance.
Just of few of the beautiful dancers who have sent me photos of them wearing their Flock of Birds necklaces!
I’m giving away two, count ’em, TWO Flock of Birds necklaces on Instagram. To win, simply post a picture of you dancing in your favourite ATS® formation and tag it @feral_strumpet & #flockofbirds. Winner will be chosen and announced on Instagram Friday, September 9th via an online randomizer.
My dance discipline has inspired many designs that are popular with dancers– here is a selection of them. Click on the image to go to the collection:

Tonight is July’s full moon, sometimes called the Thunder moon. We are definitely waiting for a thunderstorm here at Feral HQ, as summer has come on with a vengeance. I currently type to you in 33 degree centigrade heat, something we are just not used to in the North!
To celebrate we are having a sale in July on all my Tesla Hoops– the gauged threaders fit through tunnels worn in stretched ears. Just visit the Tesla Hoop Collection at feralstrumpet.co.uk use coupon code THUNDER at checkout. Offer expires 31/07/2016.
These threaders now come in a rainbow of coil colours for you to choose from! The coil slips over the hoop to secure it in place– making it both decorative and practical.
These colourful coils come in metal tones as well as brights– perfect for summer or when you need an injection of your personal power colour in your life!
Here is a short video showing how to put on and take off the hoops:
