Five Miracles, New In


I’ve been busy sourcing statement brooches,inspired by the pins worn by powerful women from the characters on Sabrina to Justice Lady Hale. Specifically, I’ve come across a treasure trove of vintage Miracle brooches and pendants. These Miracle pins look wonderful with hand knits. Brooches are also a good way to wear vintage if you have metal sensitivities, pinning them to layered clothing that doesn’t touch the skin.

These Miracle pieces are inspired by heavy Scottish silver pins inset with bold Scottish agate of the type favoured by Queen Victoria. She popularised these pins during her era, starting a fashion for weighty pieces, designed to hold heavier woollen fabrics and offset the deep colours used in tartan plaids. These modern versions by Miracle introduced Celtic elements into the designs and used glass to mimic natural stone. The ones I offer here were made in the 60s-80s. The brand Miracle began as a maker of costume jewellery in the UK in the 1940s and contemporary jewellery marked Miracle is now made by St. Justin in Cornwall.

This is the first of a larger collection of vintage Miracle pieces I’ll be offering in the future. You can find them in the What’s New section of the shop.

Vintage Folkloric Beauties in the Shop this Week

Spring is in the air, though it is still very chilly here in the North of Scotland. Mike and I have just returned from a walk in Wrack Wood where the snowdrops carpet the ground all around. They are my favourite flowers– full of the fire of the waking earth.

This week’s shop update we have several vintage horse brasses, each with a fascinating history. These small magical objects make beautiful altar decor and and also accent small corners or spaces in your home.

I’ve also found the sweetest little pewter bat pin back. She is waiting to flutter her way onto your jean jacket or dungarees!

Plus, there’s a new colour in the ever popular fairy drops design. The rustic amber has beautiful colour variants.

Big and Bold Witch Life Earrings


Bold new pentagram earrings with romantic Celtic accents are in this week’s shop update.  Look in the Witch Life collection at feralstrumpet.co.uk and find other pentagram and moon-sister inspired necklaces to pair with these statement earrings.

I love wearing pentagram earrings because they are unexpected. They frame the face with this protective, devotional symbol and are a sign to fellow witches that you are and ally walking a parallel path.
