Along my journey I discovered crystals and they have become my passion. I still remember the first crystal book I purchased; it came with a few crystals and a cage necklace so that I could wear them. My first stone was a sodalite; I wore it for at least a year! The energy that I felt from that one stone was amazing.
When a metaphysical shop opened up locally, I was all over the crystal section. One of my favorite things to do was to give these crystals to everyone I knew. I wanted my friends and family to feel the energy and notice the difference they make. My husband would carry them in his pocket for a few days then put them in his truck. I remember when we sold that truck; we found tons of crystals stashed everywhere.
I started my business in an effort to outfit everyone with crystals. I also found that while making the jewelry, I was receiving the benefits of working with it. For example: I had made a green aventurine necklace, I tried it on to make sure that it would lie correctly. After I put it on, my husband called to tell me he got the job! If you don’t already know, green aventurine is the stone of luck and money.
I have two goals for my business; I want it to be affordable and to help people. I wanted to make sure that everyone could afford to purchase the jewelry so they too could enjoy the benefits of the energy. If we ever meet at a show, you will see that I like to have conversations with my customers and learn where they are in life, so that I can help them pick the best piece for them. I can’t take all the credit as I fully believe that Spirit helps me find that perfect crystal for them.
When a customer walks away thrilled with their purchase, I realize I am on the right track and I do make a difference! I put so much love into what I do. I hand pick everything from beads to stones. I have to say, I hate shopping but if you take me to a gem show or lapidary, I am all over that! I could spend all day shopping for that perfect piece, that later will become yours.
So what am I trying to say……GET YOURS!!!! Whether you wear that crystal or carry it in your pocket, soak up the energy and enjoy!
