“Why crystals?” I’m often asked the question as to why I work with them and incorporate them as the primary highlight of my jewelry designs. First of all, I had seen such a gap in the market for crystal jewelry styles that were delicate - so many pieces are so large and overbearing for me to feel comfortable wearing each day. I felt like I was trying to be an Olsen twin and quickly recognized that although I love the look on others, I would never be part of the “more is more” club.
I wanted to showcase the stone simply and provide a place for it over the heart - the chakra I identify with most deeply as it is the root whereby all of my creations stem, and the chakra we most often need to replenish.
I have worked with crystals for many years - researching, meditating, and learning them by tapping into their individual energy fields to understand every aspect of how they’ve come to be, and how we can best utilize their unconditional loving energy to realign ourselves and access the magic we innately hold within each and every one of uniquely perfect selves. I have worked for several years in an environment assisting others to recognize what stone is best attuned to what that specific person is going through - whether it’s releasing or manifesting, to help them along their journey and understand that they are not alone, and they too are worthy of their dreams.
Crystals are powerful. Not only are they beautiful to look at, but they are incredible tools that, when used appropriately, can absolutely encourage you to change your life and build any dream you desire, so long as you are determined to put in the work. Often misunderstood, simply buying a stone and expecting it to do the work for you will only result in disappointment. They must be learned, cared for, and treated as an assistant that will carefully take you down a unique path of self-help - presenting obstacles and teachings as you learn the intrinsic, deep-rooted behavioral sets that have become part of your everyday modality and may need addressing in order to get out of your own way and accept abundance, open yourself up to love, or take a new adventure.
Crystals have helped me to change my life in so many ways - to release blockages I never realized I had, to gain some self-awareness through objectivity and understanding of my purpose. They have helped me learn what self-love looks like, what worthiness means, how to release anxiety and ego-mind driven patterns, and challenge me regularly to let go of excuses standing in the way of fulfilling my goals. When you consciously choose to open yourself up to the possibility that, maybe you don’t know what you don’t know, nonjudgmentally, curiously digging a little deeper down the rabbit hole, some really amazing things can happen and this is where the journey truly begins as unlimited possibilities reveal themselves.
My mission with building a jewelry line has always stemmed from love and wanting to help others, in the way that I have found profound assistance and guidance from working with these tools. I want to empower those who wear and work with their stones to understand that they themselves are also powerful, they needn’t rely on outside sources for what they innately hold within, and to inspire them to feel that sense of empowerment each day they adorn themselves with one of my pieces. Each stone is completely one of a kind as nature designed it, so each little fragment of uniquity outlays that stone’s journey of growth - just as it can assist you on yours.
