Tag Archives: 4 leaf clovers


It still says “SALE” on the web page because I haven’t updated it yet, but I recently obtained a low enough price on the newest frame style to keep the sales price permanently.  Isn’t that fabulous??

The framed four leaf clovers offered are found growing wild, and are not cultivated or genetically modified or dyed or otherwise artificially tampered with.   I find them, I pick them, I press them, I frame them, I ship them.  No weird chemicals, dyes, preservatives, fertilizers, pesticides, etc.  They are as close to the natural state as a dried plant can be, and artfully framed.

Excellent gift items for housewarming, wedding, job, school, graduation, and pretty much anything for which someone might want a little more luck!

I almost never do markdowns directly on the main website— promotional prices usually are listed on ebay or as clearance, and even those are rare– but this weekend is special.

Not only is it Friday the 13th, but there is also a full moon!  It’s so rare that it will not happen again until 2049!  I don’t know if it’s good luck or bad luck, but one can’t be too careful!

So, to mark the occasion, the newest style of framed 4 leaf clovers is marked down by about 20%.  Get them individually, or in groups of 3 to save more.

And, good luck this weekend!!

Yep, there is a Friday 13 this June!  But fear not!  You can get some of these!  And if you order during the first week of June, you’ll have your lucky 4 leaf clover in plenty of time!

In response to the many requests I receive for information regarding large orders of the framed lucky clovers, I will be adding that as an option on the website soon.  Until then, please use the contact form or email for inquiries about pricing and availability.

Typically, I have enough 4 leaf clovers available to fill orders of 100+ pieces.  However, I do not always have enough frames for bulk orders, and usually have to purchase or reorder them for orders of more than a couple of dozen.  This means it can take up to 2 weeks for me to receive the frames needed to assemble a large order.  So, if ordering a large quantity, please keep this in mind, and allow approximately 30 days to receive your order.

Currently, individual framed clovers are available for 19.00, while lots of 3 are available for a discount.  By ordering 3 pieces, you save over 10%.

The current plan is to add 12-lots for a larger discount, and perhaps 50-lots for an even larger discount.

Since I get a few questions about these, I thought I would help solve the mystery of their sporadic appearances, disappearances, and reappearances.

When I originally started making the clover necklace pendants several years ago, I used resin.  That worked great for a short while, but then there was a batch that seemed fine at first, and then somehow “melted” in transit, becoming a total mess by the time the customers received the packages, or within a short time after receipt.  Naturally, I issued refunds for all who reported the problem.  And, that was the end of the resin pendants.  I would not risk having a repeat, and having unhappy buyers.  Plus, the resin is messy, time consuming, and requires chemicals I don’t like using.

So, then I switched to the glass pendants– and those are brilliant.  They’re easy to clean, they’re affordable, they’re unique.  As importantly, they don’t melt or require me to use weird chemical concoctions.

They are actually very durable.  I (unintentionally) bounced my own pendant on a brick walkway one day, and not a chip or scratch on either the pendant or the walkway.  Pretty lucky, eh?

The trick is getting the adhesive just right, and eliminating air bubbles.  Also, the clovers have to be coated with a protective sealant prior to setting in the pendant under the glass, to reduce the amount of adhesive they soak up, because that can alter the color.  And, even with all the care in the world, they don’t always turn out quite right, so I have to scrap a few from every batch.  In short, it’s not as easy as it might look, and it isn’t something I can make in large quantities, especially at the low price at which I generally offer them.

Also, (and this applies also to the key chains) a certain size is required.  For the key chains, a clover measuring less than 3/4-inch must be used.  If you think it’s difficult finding a four leaf clover at all, just imagine trying to find one about the size of your thumbnail in a pasture full of clovers!  So, I just don’t find enough of them to make large quantities.

I am looking at possibilities to overcome some of these challenges, but for now, the frames are the most attractive, efficient way to preserve and present these lovelies.

And if it’s lucky clovers you’re after, I have lots of those!  Photos of them too, printed on all sorts of fabulous products, printed to order, just for you.

Even on necklaces and playing cards.

 

 


I was planning to do updates on the main soulbearing.com site tonight, but spaced and forgot the thumb drive with the clover photos on it!  I am still kicking myself!  I can’t believe I did that!  So, it will be at least another day  or 2.  I’m sorry.  I know I said they’d be posted days ago.  But there is more good news!  There will be a few of the 4 leaf clover key chains, in addition to the framed clovers.

And, I have the new photos for the zazzle store with me, so I will be working on those tonight, and the newest ones will be there as soon as Zazzle updates it all.  That can take up to 48 hours, but they’re usually speedier than that, and it’s usually within the first 24 hours… usually.

Thank you all for being so patient!  I will try not to keep you waiting much longer!

 


I know it’s been a long wait, but there will be new paintings and drawings on the website soon!

And, the newest frames for the four leaf clovers have arrived!  It’s a new style, and I know it will be as popular as the current frame style has been.  The current selection is almost gone, so if you want the current frame style, get them fast!  I will likely discontinue that frame style when it is gone, and there are just a few pieces left.

But, wait! There’s more!

I will also be adding some new designs, photos, and products to the soulbearing store on zazzle! (At the moment of this posting, the zazzle site seems to be undergoing maintenance and the store page will not open, but this should be remedied soon. So if it won’t open for you, try again later.)

I have a few more plans also, but one thing at a time! I’ve kept everyone waiting long enough for more new originals.  The plan is to have it all added within the next couple of weeks– I’ll keep ya posted!

 


After defeating a compatibility issue between my program and the webhost, the latest framed clovers are now posted for sale! Yippee!

And still in plenty of time for St. Patrick’s Day!  You can find them for sale, to purchase for yourself or as gifts, at http://soulbearing.com  There are still a few more changes and updates coming to the website, but since so many people are eager to have these, I wanted to get them posted!

New Framed Four Leaf Clovers

New Framed 4 Leaf Clovers


The framed real 4 leaf clovers and the 4-leaf clover necklaces and keychains on the main soulbearing.com site have been very popular!

Right before the holidays, they were so popular that I was having trouble keeping up with the demand, especially since they are all found growing wild and are not genetically engineered and cultivated en masse.  So, many customers have noticed that when trying to purchase directly from the website, there is an “out of stock” message.  I haven’t actually run out of clovers– I just couldn’t get them in frames fast enough!

That’s about to change.

The new frame styles are just a little different, and there are a few one-of-a-kind framed designs, as well.  Since I am still getting back in the swing of things and have a lot of catching up to do, it will be a couple of days before I can photograph them and post them on the website, but they are on the way!  They’ll be available in plenty of time for St. Patrick’s Day.

It will be a while longer before there are more keychains and necklaces featuring the real lucky clovers, but in the meantime, you can find a variety of items for sale and printed with photos of 4 leaf clovers here.  I know, I know.  They’re prints and not the actual clovers.  But the photos of the clovers still unpicked are lovely, and also very popular.  And, they’ll ship in plenty of time for St. Patrick’s Day, too.


Some readers have noticed it has been quite some time since my last post, and since the website was last updated.  While I’d like to say I was away on some exotic photo shoot or relaxing at an art retreat, the truth is I have been struggling with a severe bout of depression.

When my grandfather passed away a little over 2 years ago, I was able to repress the grief for some time, but then finally the realization came– he is gone.

As a small child, I sat on his lap during church services, drawing on the church bulletin.  He is one of the biggest reasons I eventually chose to study and create art, because those early memories are among the best I have.  Since his passing, most attempts to paint or draw have only reminded me of how much I miss him.  I was on the brink of throwing in the towel, tossing out the art supplies, burning whatever paintings remain, and closing the website, not because I do not want to continue this line of work, but simply because at times it just felt like too much to take on in the midst of depression.

However, my supporters, friends, and clients have been determined to drag me out of my mental muck, and for that I am thankful.  From the friend who reminded me that the portrait of his dog still means so much to him even after more than a decade, to the stranger who ordered some of my ornaments on Zazzle knowing her loved ones will have and cherish them even after she is gone (hopefully many, many years from now), to the customers who ordered lucky clovers to give a boost to their own friends– all of you have helped me to realize… it is not really about me.  It is about leaving the world in better condition than it was in when I arrived, and how my work makes others think and feel.  In other words…  It is about all of you!

So for now, I am putting away my self-pity to make room for more new art & photography, more new additions to the Zazzle store, more auction listings, more 4 leaf clovers, and eventually more “Nonprofit of the Month” posts.  And, the main website should be updated soon, so be sure to check out http://soulbearing.com for the latest art & photography releases and lucky clovers, and for links to order prints of my work from Zazzle.

And, because all of you allow and encourage me to keep doing what I do, you have my eternal gratitude.

Thank You.
