The Alchemy of Romance” Part 1 – AlcheMystic Amulets by Mimi L. Poor

Thanks to StyleCoven for this amazing story on AlcheMystic Amulets!! Photos by Sondra Stocker.

This is the first installment of Style Coven’s “Alchemy of Romance” series leading up to and beyond Valentine’s Day. Stay tuned for the jewelry, perfume, fashions and gifts that can make every woman feel like a “Love Goddess.”

Thank my stars and garters I caught up with jewelry designer Mimi L. Poor just in time for Valentine’s Day. We met at Lorna Firman’s charming CauldronKitty in Silver Lake, CA, where I love to shop for candles, incense, books and best of all … jewelry. You see, although the Cauldron’s impressive inventory can be had on-line, nothing is more relaxing for me than to spend an afternoon out and about looking at pretty things and chatting with designers and artists. CauldronKitty is among the select specialty stores in Silver Lake that still serves as a haute spot for finding unique and interesting jewelry at an accessible price because Lorna has a flair for buying unique pieces.

But this time, I was a girl on a mission. You see, my fiancé is wonderful, but always pressed for time, so I’ve learned to check around for what I want BEFORE he gets inspired to buy me a new dust buster or blender. Luckily for me, Mimi’s latest collection from her jewelry line, AcheMystic Amulets has a lot of pieces in copper which I have come to learn can be a magnet for LOVE and an effective “battery” for ROMANCE. Just ask the Energizer Bunny. (wink)

Style Coven: How did you become THE “ALCHEMYSTIC?”

AlcheMystic: “AlcheMystic” just came to me one day several years ago. For me it means “transformation through vision.” I am still discovering and learning the fullness of that. Right now I am learning by doing.

Style Coven: Why is copper the metal of Venus?

AlcheMystic: Well, here’s the Wikipedia answer. “In Roman times, it became known as aes Cyprium (aes being the generic Latin term for copper alloys such as bronze and other metals, and Cyprium because so much of it was mined in Cyprus). From this, the phrase was simplified to cuprum, hence the English copper. Copper was associated with the goddess Aphrodite/Venus in mythology and alchemy, owing to its lustrous beauty, its ancient use in producing mirrors, and its association with Cyprus, which was sacred to the goddess. In astrology and alchemy the seven heavenly bodies known to the ancients were associated with seven metals also known in antiquity, and Venus was assigned to copper.“(laughs)
