Avocado Stone Faces ๐Ÿฅ‘  by Jan Campbell ยฉ Mayo, Ireland ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช Seeking the little folk inside avocados ๐Ÿฅ‘ Bronze castings of my carvings available for purchaseโคต๏ธ

Rowan ๐Ÿ might do some castings of him this year... (original carving nfs)

Packaging ๐Ÿ“ฆ I've been enjoying stamping my new gift boxes from Klee paper (@ecolandireland) Anyone looking for plastic-free packaging and stationery options, check out their site ๐Ÿ˜Š if you're in Dublin I recommend visiting their lovely little shop on North Circular road - I always get excited in a nerdy way about all their recycled papers and plastic-alternatives ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ™Œ I've been shipping my pieces in recycled paper packaging for the past 3 years. This has been in a bid to lessen my plastic footprint (inspired by sites like @plasticfreetuesday๐Ÿ’›), and because I really dislike receiving my online shopping in a package full of bubble wrap and mixed materials that are difficult to separate for recycling. I want my packages to be fun to open and easy to recycle afterwards ๐Ÿ˜Š

I have a couple of Ned figurines available in my shop again ๐Ÿ€

*Last safe shipping date before Christmas* for orders outside of Europe. I was mistaken in yesterday's post when I wrote that the last date for USA was the 12th. It's actually the 7th, tomorrow! You can still order after today but it mightn't make it to you on time for Christmas ๐ŸŒฒ

I've been getting a lot of enquiries recently, many of which are similar. Before contacting me, please read on.. - I have outlined my answers to the most frequent questions: โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข I can confirm that I will not be selling any more original avocado stone carvings this year. I have no spare ones hiding behind the scenes, I don't take customs orders. The avocado stones you see in my photos have already gone to their new homes ๐Ÿ˜Š โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข Some of my bronze designs are now sold out - I won't be restocking them this year. However, I have some "seconds quality" bronze pieces available (these are pieces with slight faults.) I am happy to sell them at a discounted rate - message me if you're interested in a specific design that is sold out or beyond your budget and I can send you a photo of the seconds quality piece, along with the discount I am offering. Discounts are determined by me and are generally between 35% to 10% off the normal price of the piece. โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข Please note I am based in Ireland so any last minute orders abroad may take longer than you expect. There is a lot of traffic in the postal world this time of the year. The Irish Post's estimates for last safe shipping dates before Christmas are: 7th December for the USA, 18th for Europe, and 20th for Ireland. "Rest of the World" is 7th December (very vague, that one ๐Ÿ˜‰). Thank you for taking the time to read!

โœจ Sheela na Gig โœจ variations of these figures can be found engraved in the stonework of holy wells, medieval churches and castles around Ireland and the UK. There is folkloric evidence of Sheela na Gig figures being used as "birthing stones", loaned out to women in labour to aid a safe delivery. Theย figure has connotations with fertility, her vulva representing the gateway between non-life and life.
I called my Sheela na Gig Sรญofra (pronounced Shee-fra), an Irish name meaning "fairy." I discovered after naming her that Sheefra was a midwife in the Bible. She a figurine and sits happily in your palm ๐Ÿ˜Š available in bronze on my website & etsy ๐Ÿ’›

Diarmuid in a Hawthorn "fairy" tree ๐ŸŒณโœจ last chance to get 25% off the bronze pieces in my shop! Use the code "NOLLAIG" when checking-out ๐Ÿ˜Š thank you so much for all the support ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’› Orders from the weekend are heading out to the USA, Canada, Ireland, Japan, Norway, Denmark, the UK, Germany and Australia ๐ŸŒ

my avocado stone carving of Bran and his bronze casting ๐Ÿ‚ this was a design I was particularly excited to recreate in bronze - he was inspired by characters depicted on ancient coins that I admired on @artancient 's fascinating account ๐Ÿ—ฟโœจ I think the bronze suits his ancient celtic warrior aura ๐Ÿ˜‰ my sale will end tomorrow at midnight, see my second last post for the coupon code ๐Ÿ˜Š

A Morel mushroom, Bran and Harold ๐Ÿ‚ Harold got pinched from my pocket by the tendrils of the forest a few days ago. I couldn't find him anywhere โ˜น๏ธ If anyone's in Letterkeen woods in Mayo, keep an eye out for him ๐Ÿ’› if you find him you can keep him! (Ps: my sale continues until Monday, see my last posts for details ๐Ÿ˜Š)
