I was just alerted that someone on OpenSea is selling one of my DA postings (just the image) as a non-fungible token. When I checked I found they just opened their store this month and have hundreds of DA posts listed for sale; mostly images of jewelry, small sculptures, masks and other craft-related art. The prices aren't anything to sneeze at, either. Imagine someone downloading an image of your work and asking around $20 for it! It you're a crafter check out https://opensea.io/0xbce37240fafc4891019c32e5f1fe4b5555bf9eab and see if your artwork is being ripped off. If it is you can report the theft at antifraud@opensea.io. Not sure if it will do any good, but I guess the digital token market is taking art theft to a completely new level.

It's taken me a little longer than I wanted, but I guess it's still in time for fall weather. You can now grab detailed instructions and word charts for my "Queen of the Faire" cuff bracelet from my Etsy store. If you're still looking for a fun Delica bead project before the holidays, this would be a good one! https://www.etsy.com/listing/880667864/queen-of-the-faire-instructions?ref=shop_home_active_1

The Empress from my New Era Elements Tarot made it into a new release by Taschen publishers! They are starting a new series of illustrated art books called the Library of Esoterica. The first volume to be published deals with the tradition of the Tarot. You can check out their new publication here. It's going to be released this month and I'm excited that part of their proceeds will benefit the Loveland Foundation, which provides therapy support for Black women and girls. From their website: "The Loveland Foundation was established in 2018 by Rachel Cargle in response to her widely successful birthday wish fundraiser, Therapy for Black Women and Girls. Her enthusiastic social media community raised over $250,000, which made it possible for Black women and girls nationally to receive therapy support. Black women and girls deserve access to healing, and that healing will impact generations." I am so glad to be able to be a part of this effort and to contribute to the amazing
