Background – The Gatekeepers of Inexplicable Things

Bonjour! Bienvenue, mon Cherie!

My name is Shawmarie – I was named after a Cajun song and hence before I was even born, began my love affair with all things in the bayou! I have been practicing some form of magick roughly for over 4 decades. My background is very eclectic – with a strong influence in Scottish & Celtic, with a bit of Stregheria and Hoodoo thrown in for good measure. My husband, Kelly, has a Druid background with very strong roots in Nordic culture. Together, we form our own powerful brand of magick and pull from many avenues. It never hurts to have feline influence as well – the twins: Rougarou and Voodoo came along first. About a year later, The Minion (who happens to have 26 toes) followed. That makes up our amazing household.

Kelly, bestowed the name ‘Inexplicable Things’ to my little shop several years ago. Since then, we have learned that as we grow, the name becomes more fitting.

Inexplicable Things is the culmination of many years of hand crafting candles, spell works, charms, herbal blends, gris gris bags & mojos, bone collecting, mead making, graveyard photography – among many other inexplicable things. We take our crafting very seriously and we greatly enjoy making and creating magickal works.

As the name of the shop implies, many of the items that we have created in the past are inexplicable, but isn’t that what magick’s all about? We are more than happy to do custom creations of candles for a very specific use; a hand crafted spell or spell kit to assist; an herbal blend to help with an ailment; or a hoodoo conjure for a variety of uses! Most of the items we create are bayou and Cajun influenced – Please understand, nothing here will ever be laughed at, frowned upon, or viewed as taboo.

The Etsy shop took a bit of hiatus while we relocated for work – but should be back up and running in no time. In the meantime, we have decided to begin a blog for our followers, friends and family  –  so they can stay up to date on the happenings of our household and what we are currently working on.

Intentions of starting a book about my unique philosophies is also about to begin – and that will be another topic in and of itself.

If you have any questions, concerns, comments – please feel free to leave them here or contact us on Etsy. The coffee pot is always on!
