Gift Giving throught the Zodiac - Fashion with Passion

This series of articles will feature ideas for zodiac inspired handmade gifts from members of the Trans-Canada Etsy Team. Each new zodiac month will begin with an introduction to the qualities associated with the present astrology sun sign. Throughout the rest of the month I will feature items which have those qualities and/or would be a suitable gift idea for people of that sign.

Scorpio - The Scorpion
24 October - 22 November
Archetypes -
Shaman, Investigator, Hypnotist, Phoenix

This wire wrapped pendant made by Mybellebijoux has been made with black art wire and a mix of white and turquoise glass and shell beads. The way that the light catches the shapes caught within the wired web gives this pendant a beautiful mysterious quality.

This cowl collar by OffTheHooks has been crocheted out of super-soft, non-itchy alpaca-acrylic yarn. It has a dramatic flair and perfect "Graffiti" style colours for a Scorpio. OffTheHooks says: "Pull it on around your neck to stay warm. Pull it up over your face for those frigid winter days, pull it around your dreads or hair and its a perfect headband. The possibilities are endless."

Oh so sexy Scorpio! 'Copper Dreams' comes from the shop Of FiveForty and features beautiful shimmery copper beads which perfectly set off the focal lampwork bead. The 'Copper on Obsidian' glass bead has been made by Etsy seller Gillianbeads and adds an intensity and passion to this lovely necklace.

This feature has been prepared for you by Morgen of Inkyspider Textile Designs and Kootsac re-usable bulk food bags.
