Portals Featured Sponsor: Mithros Designs


It is time to introduce another Portals Sponsor: jewelry makers extraordinairre, Mithros Designs!

Mithros Designs (also known as Oddysey Craftworks) specialize in pieces inspired by myth and magic. They describe their work as “magic in metal”. Each piece is cast to order, and they offer quite an array of different styles.

They even feature a necklace based on one of SJ Tucker’s designs – the labyrinth from her Blessings album! The stone at its center is….wait for it….a Sugilite!

Sooj’s sugilite labyrinth!

This is one of my favorite pieces of theirs, for not only is it beautiful in its own right, but it reminds all who wear it that we can step into the magic Sooj evokes for us at any time. Artists collaborating in this way to deepen each other’s worlds definitely hits my sweet spot! This is what Portals is all about, after all, and Mithros Designs nails it with their collaborative spirit!

We met Mithros Designs proprietors Liv and Andross Moore at SJ Tucker’s Strowlerfest in St. Louis. They were there vending their wares and were very supportive of the whole Strowler tribe and all the artists involved. The camaraderie at Strowlerfest is one of my strongest memories from early touring years, and Liv and Andross were very much a part of that.

Who wouldn’t want this customizable gorgeousness to celebrate their union?

Very committed to leaving a small footprint, they describe their process as “obsessively green.” They use 100% recycled metals, 80% – 100% recycled packaging, and are fastidious about making sure no contaminants get into the water and woods around their home. That is certainly in alignment with the values of the people I know!  So if you are a believer in the “Vote with your dollars” mindset, you’d be voting for a whole lot of goodness when you pick up your next piece of jewelry at Mithros Designs.

In keeping with their willingness to throw in with other artists, they have supported not only Portals, but also Hexenfest. If you like either of these projects, know that Mithros is a part of the team that makes them happen.

They also have a fragrance line at http://underhillalchemy.com

Their website is currently undergoing a redesign so they are asking folks to visit their Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/OdysseyCraftworks

You can learn more about them in their own words, also on Etsy, at https://www.etsy.com/shop/OdysseyCraftworks/about

Thank you, Liv and Adross of Mithros Designs, for being part of what makes art go around!
