CRAFTY DARK AUNTY
Barbara Mair has been a member of the SPF for more than 20 years. She started her business – Crafty Dark Aunty – in 2020. She has a regular base at The Barras Market in Glasgow (the London Road end) and with the help of her family attends markets around Glasgow, Largs and Hamilton.
She makes sacred necklaces which can be worn as decoration, or as used for meditation and ritual practices. She also makes bracelets and earrings. All her necklaces and bracelets are made out of semi-precious gems and are mindfully created with intent.
Where she cannot make what she wants, she sources the items to offer the Pagan Community a chance to buy meaningful or quirky pendants on chains or cords, and rings with Pagan or nature themes.
She also crochets. Her own patterns are the Goddess Altar Dolls and Rune/Elemental Bears, but she will crochet most anything so long as it has a Pagan or Nature theme. Where she uses other people’s patterns, these patterns are credited on the label. If you want something bespoke, let her know. She takes commissions.
Below is a picture of the Autumn Goddess Altar Doll, part of a commissioned set of four starting this Spring. The dolls were spaced to out so the customer could pay for them individually and are produced at the start of the season they represent.

I’ve always been fascinated by the magic of the forge and the abilities of the blacksmith. As a child I loved the stories of epic heroes, the humble blacksmith was often the unknown hero or essential character of these stories. By achieving mastery of their craft, they progressed the heroes’ journey or in some cases became the hero themselves.
In recent years my career and understanding of blacksmithing has merged with my development within the pagan communities. My practice has evolved into the creation of wiccan and pagan artefacts.
