About Our Guest
A Crystal Enthusiast with a Gypsy Soul
I come from a family of creatives, growing up on a family farm where my parents used their talents to make sure we never noticed the lack of material possessions.
I rebelled a bit against my artsy upbringing and found myself in a scientific job behind a desk, Astrophysics. Interesting as a subject, but I never really fit in, I was always searching. Following my heart has led me on a winding path to where I am now, creating accessories that highlight the natural, raw beauty in the world.
Beauty to me does not lay in perfection, which means the crystals I naturally end up with are selected for character and depth.
I find myself inspired by the unique energy of each stone, and sometimes when inspiration lags, a good old fashioned desert hike is all I need to get back into design.
I am also fascinated by the metaphysical studies that surround crystals. The place they have held in many cultures over the course of history shows their pull on our collective psyche, and the majesty of a stone that has been part of the earth for millions of years before becoming part of the jewelry I make is what inspires me the most.
