Creating Sacred Jewelry

What is sacred jewelry? Where do I find it? Can I make my own? Can I assign a piece I buy or already own as sacred? Sterling will introduce her class to the wonderful, colorful, and free form world of sacred jewelry making. Topics covered will include defining what is sacred jewelry, how and where to acquire materials or ready-made pieces, simple steps in crafting your own jewelry, and the consecration of your sacred pieces. The class will end with show and tell, so please ‘bring: a piece or two of jewelry you hold near and dear to you. You may even want to have a drawing pad and colored pencils on hand to scratch out your design ideas. Please join Sterling and the Ardantane gang for a creative and crafty look into spirituality!

  • Tracey Speyrer (Sterling)

    Tracey Speyrer, aka Sterling, is a member of Our Lady of the Woods (OLW) in White Rock, New Mexico. Sterling grew up with an eclectic spiritual mother who encouraged her exploration of different religious views and their programs. She self dedicated to the Wiccan tradition in 1996 while leading a very private pagan life. Wiccan philosophy best fit her spiritual needs. In 2021, Sterling found OLW through their Wicca 101 class. Currently, she has achieved First Degree.

    Sterling has a BA in Psychology for the University of Colorado Denver and a MS in Occupational Health and Safety from Southeastern Oklahoma State University. She also has extensive Master’s work in cognitive behavior, addiction recovery and psychological counseling. Currently, Sterling is a Health Physicist at Los Alamos National Laboratory. She has worked within the Department of Energy (DOE) complex, at five major sites across the county, for 41 years at various jobs supporting nuclear weapons production.

    Aside from studying and practicing Wicca, Sterling is an accomplished horticulturalist with credentials from the American Rose Society (judge and consulting rosarian). She is an active amateur musician, playing piccolo, flute and alto flute with the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra, The Los Alamos Community Winds, and leads the merry group of the Los Alamos Flute Choir. If she has any time left in her day, she is dabbling in herbology or in some art project; tie dying fabric goods, painting, jewelry, paper and metal craft. Sterling lives in White Rock, NM with her husband Bill, three dogs and three cats…never a dull moment in their home.
