John of God Crystals

December 9, 2011

I’m so delighted to be offering for sale The John of God Crystals. I’ve never been to Brazil to see John of God at his healing clinic in Abadiania Brazil, but I have spoken with many who have. They all talk about how peaceful and healing it is at the Casa de Dom Inacia. Susan Casey wrote a beautiful article on her experience with John of God for Oprah’s O magazine. Joao de Deus is known throughout the world as a spiritual healer and Medium. Entities, Angels and other Healing Beings work through him to perform miraculous healings on those who seek him out. He has cured people with life threatening diseases and illness, physical handicaps and emotional traumas. I purchased these very special crystals from my long time gem dealer Digby Bertram of Avalon Trading. Digby recently returned from the Casa with these powerful crystals. He personally hand selected […]

Healing Benefits Of Wearing Copper

September 6, 2011

In an economy where just a few dollars can make the difference in a purchase, I’m looking into ways to keep the prices of my jewelry affordable. The cost of sterling silver is rising each day. I’ve always used sterling in my jewelry designs, but now I’m faced with the reality that the current silver prices will effect the cost of my jewelry. I have to raise prices as my costs continue rise.   The good news is, I’ am exploring different options in metals. I’ve recently been using more copper in my designs. This lead to a search on the healing benefits of  copper. More good news, copper is a very beneficial metal to wear for healing. Copper has long been used for its healing properties.   Historically copper has been used by humans dating back nearly 10,000 years. It was found that copper was even used in Pre-Columbian […]

Pink & Green Tourmaline Heart Opening Gemstones

August 4, 2011

  I love it when my Yoga Practice inspires a necklaces design. The other day I was practicing some Heart Opening Yoga poses. I was moving into a pose called “the Camel”. Reaching back to touch my feet, I could feel the stretch in my body and spontaneous began to focus on the healing energies of pink and green Tourmaline. When my yoga practice was finished I went into my bead studio and found a stunning Tourmaline Pendant. It had both the green and pink Tourmaline stones. Next I found a strand of faceted multi-color Tourmalines to string the heart opening pendant onto. Both pink and green Tourmaline are known as Heart Chakra Stones. Tourmaline has a soothing energy for the heart and can facilitate forgiveness and emotional healing.   It’s natural to put up a protective shield around our Heart Chakra to avoid pain from loss. This shield can also […]

Moldavite, A Stone Of Transformation

August 2, 2011

Out of all the different gemstones I have worked with over the past 20 years, Moldavite is the one that has shown me the most dramatic responses from those who hold it. I have witness many first time encounters with Moldavite. What I have noticed when someone is new to the energies of Moldavite is a strong reaction to the stone. Sometimes to the point of the person throwing the stone down as if they can no longer be near its vibration. Sometimes the opposite happens and a person can not let go of the stone because it feels so good, so familiar. Rarely is there no response from Moldavite. One of the more common responses from someone who holds Moldavite for the first time is the experience of warmth or heat, usually felt in the hand then felt throughout the body like a wave. I have seen people become […]

New Quartz Crystal Collection

July 21, 2011

Well, I’ve done it again! I just acquired a collection of crystals and stones from a private collector. Buying stones from a private collector is much different than buying stones from professional dealers. Dealers carry great quantities of stones and selection, but the stones aren’t always good quality. Often I will look at hundreds of stones before I make a purchase because the quality and energy vibration just isn’t up to my standard. Prices from dealers are at current market rate which always seems to go higher and higher each year.   The benefits from buying crystals from a private collector is that each stone is hand picked one at a time, rather than bulk purchasing. Many dealers buy barrels of stones at a time. Literally tons of rocks to get their best price. This most recent collection comes from someone who carefully selected his stones, purchasing only the very […]

The Good Vibrations of Larimar

June 10, 2011

When I think of one stone that represents the feelings of summer its Larimar. Larimar is the quintessential summer gemstone. Remember those times when you were a kid, with nothing to do on a hot summer’s day? You’d lay on the freshly mowed lawn and look up at the sky. Hours could pass as you watched the clouds roll by, imagining the puffy white shapes to be all sorts of creatures. There you are without a care in the world, no concerns about time, just being, in the present moment. That’s the vibrational quality of Larimar. Larimar is a stone of peaceful tranquility. Its a very soothing and serene stone. Larimar’s energy is calming. It can help reduce excessive fear or anger with its cooling energies. Relaxation is one of the benefits of Larimar. If you can’t go lay in the hammock with a good book and tall glass of […]

Crystal Dolphin Retreats

May 30, 2011

  Healing Crystals & Dancing Dolphin Retreats on the waters off of Key West FL. combine the vibrational energy of crystals and gemstones with the magical interactions of the dolphin. This past April I had the privilege of working with Capt. Victoria Impallomeni in offering these one day retreats. Here is an account of one of our days together. Our journey begins with a perfect Florida Keys day. Light winds and warm temperatures greeted us as we pushed off the dock. There were 8 of us aboard the IMP II, a comfortable, shaded 25-ft. powerboat guided by Capt. Victoria of Dancing Dolphin Spirit Charters. Captain Victoria Impallomeni-Spencer is native wilderness guide with 36 years experience and an Environmental Marine Science Degree. Together, Capt. Victoria and myself have designed these retreats to offer an opportunity to connect with ourselves, each other, the crystals & stones and the dolphin and ocean where […]

How to Choose Chakra Jewelry

May 25, 2011

I’ve been making Chakra Jewelry since 1994. Over these many years, I’ve often been asked “How do I choose a Chakra Bracelet. How do I know which one I need? Which one is best for me?” Sometimes the answer is our Chakra Stones bracelet. This bracelet covers all the Chakras and helps balance each energy center. But, often if we just take a minute to tune into ourselves, by going inwards, to our center, taking  a few deep breaths, we can discern for ourselves which Chakra is calling out for balancing. If you feel drawn to a particular color this can be an indication. Are you finding yourself wearing more blues or greens? Do you go to your clothes closet pick out a piece of clothing, only to put it back and choose something totally different than what you had planned? This can be a indicator. You may be drawn to the […]

Spring A Time Of Renewal

March 20, 2011

Welcome Spring a time of renewal and counting blessings. Today March 20th 2011 is the first day of Spring.   With all the devastation, destruction  and violence happening on the planet at this time, it feels especially important to take time out to celebrate all the beauty and abundance that is also here for us. I feel so blessed to be living in the Fl Keys for this Spring Equinox. My morning starts with fresh gentle breezes and bright blue skies.  Cardinals and other song birds sing their arrival as they journey back north. Last night’s full moon was spectacular to see, coming up out of the ocean so big and orange. I left some of my crystals and gemstone outside in the moonlight. One of my favorite ways to cleanse my stones is to put them outside under the full moon.  The energy of the moon light washes away anything that […]
