Hi everyone! My name is Dina and I am the maker behind all the creations you see. I live in Sydney, Australia.
I have always been a creative since I can remember. I think a big part of it is enjoying the solitude that comes with it. I find myself mostly being inspired by music, ancient techniques, dreams and nature. My day job is working at a florist, I am also studying to get a qualification in floristry. When I'm not working I enjoy going to see live music, pointing my camera at things or spending my time out in nature. I am constantly learning new art forms and have dabbed into many mediums over my life. Art is just so fascinating to me, I will look at something I find beautiful and want to know how it was created, how to make something from scratch. Our hands are such incredible tools. I wanted to start 'Serpent's Spell' to showcase all that I create and in hopes it can motivate other creatives at the same time to get out there and go for it and learn something new.
I just want to say a big thank you for supporting me and coming along on my journey. When purchasing from me you are not only purchasing quality hand made goods that have taken hours and hours of practice but you are purchasing a part of my heart and soul.
Why "Serpent’s Spell?"
“Serpent” actually came about because of my fascination with bellydancing and how the female body moves like a serpent as she isolates different parts at a time. Snakes are mystical and mysterious creatures. They shed their skin through sloughing, they are symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing. The ouroboros (which I chose to have in my logo) is an ancient symbol of eternity and continual renewal of life. “Spell” because candles are enchanting, hypnotising and put you in a daze, much like a spell.
