When I was a kid, I was afraid of thunderstorms. I'd pull my blankets up to my ears, and watch the flash of lightning paint the room-darkened shades white. I concocted a story: that the lightning was a photographer taking my fabulous picture, and that the crash was him dropping his camera from his ladder leaning up against my second-story window. (Yes, I now appreciate the creepiness of imagining a random paparazzi mouth-breathing against my bedroom window.) This was one my first memories of taking something that scared me and flipping the narrative to find solace.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've learned to do that a lot since then. Turning sickness into space to reinvent. Anxiety into curiosity. Fear into proof something mattered. This past week, I've been having some traveling nerve pain, and it all hit me again: what if this new life-- this new house that I've painstakingly built following the collapse of my pre-Lyme estate was about to disintegrate the same way? And just like that, my brain went into that old story: the one where I'm in the pit surrounded by shards of my former life, trying desperately to put them back together into something beautiful.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then yesterday evening, out of nowhere, I experienced our first thunderstorm since moving to San Diego. And though turbulent weather still unsettles me-- it's always seemed to have the power to creep into my bones and disorients my cells-- last night, I went out into the pre-storm shower and danced. I tipped my face up to the sky and caught the drops on my skin. It was proof that we can't know what's coming. That the picture can change, just like that. That what we FEAR isn't what we KNOW.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The thunder rolled across the tree-specked canyon outside our window. I thought of the man taking my picture. I thought of all I've been through, and all I've built out of chaos. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And just like that, I knew I'd be fine.
I have a confession to make. I made this statement Sun & Moon necklace with a huge glittering Moonstone and a fiery African Sunstone tassel a few weeks ago. And here's the truth: I've been hiding her from you. (Covers eyes.) But--but-- only because I've fallen for her so hard! But I know there is someone out there who needs her more than me. She's designed to be open at the back (see third pic) letting her sweet energies remain unleashed, is long, sterling silver, almost weightless, and every gem used is AAA-grade. She embodies the perfect balance of the divine feminine (Moonstone) coupled with the supreme masculine (Sunstone.) I don't know if I can bear to list her on my online shop just yet (sobs melodramatically: "It's too soon! Too soon, I tell you!") but she is $228, available upon request, and gosh is she special! (Slide for more pics!)
Give yourself the Sun and the Moon! This necklace features a gorgeous Rainbow Moonstone with three glittering AAA-grade Sunstones set asymmetrically throughout the chain to remind us of the divine beauty found in imperfection. A powerful and benevolent Air Element, Moonstone connects us softly to the divine feminine, teaching us to trust in the cycle of all things, similar to how the moon waxes and wanes. She reminds us that what we seek is already with us, or well on its way.
Residing on the opposite end of the orbit, Sunstone is a mesmerizing Fire Element that truly appears as if one dropped a vat of glitter inside it! Sunstone embodies the energy of the supreme masculine, bringing heat, vigor, leadership, and confidence to the second and third chakras.
The medicine of this necklace is BALANCE: learning to love and recognize all facets of our being by embodying the ancient wisdom of the Sun and the Moon. (Tap to shop!) 👆
Therapeutic Elements Used: Lustrous Rainbow Moonstone, AAA-grade Sunstone, Sterling Silver
Who It Benefits: Those who wish to embody and balance the sweet duality of our divine feminine and supreme masculine energies
Element: Air, Fire
Chakras: Sexual/Creative (2nd), Solar Plexus (3rd), Third Eye (6th), Crown (7th)

There is so much grief and anger in the world. At times, it screams at me, so loud I can feel it travel through my veins in a never-ending doppler effect. And yet, I am constantly reminded of the power of humanity. The generosity of spirit I see daily in so many. The love and care we take with ourselves, and with each other. These things may not be loud. They may be quiet. Unassuming. Content to live behind the scenes like an anonymous benefactor. But they're no less equal in abundance as what roars loudly at us through the wrongs done us, the lies touted, the posturing on the TV screen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have to be honest. I'm not perfect. And I don't advocate for ignoring all that's ugly or sad in the world to obtain a faux mask of positivity. Sometimes it gets to me, digs its hooks in, especially the events this past week. And maybe that's not a bad thing. Change is born out of being uncomfortable. We prove it every day. Hungry? We eat. Tired? We sleep. Discomfort seeks comfort. But even though I think there's power and value to be found, learning to sit with the sad, bad, and ugly-- watching it, learning it, knowing its ways so we can craft a path forward-- I also think it's crucial to hold equal space for the quiet love. The shy but present hand, raising in solidarity. The gentle hope. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Perhaps just by writing this, love and faith will feel a bit louder to those of you who've taken the time to read to the end of this little post. I hope so. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you feel so moved, I invite you to honor a quiet, beautiful act or sweet moment you witnessed today by sharing it in the comments.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hope. Let's make it loud. #SeeBeautyEverywhere
My last rare and incredibly lustrous Flame Edison Baroque Pearl prayer bead bracelet! Made with fragrant Vietnamese Sandalwood, AAA grade Blue Tiger's Eye, and 14K Gold-Filled and Gold Vermeil accents, this light and luscious slip-on bracelet aids in invoking the gentle current of water. To me, Pearls speak the medicine of patience: that with time and care, something of extraordinary beauty can from from a simple speck of sand. The addition of Blue Tiger's Eye adds the strength and grounding ferocity of Fire and Earth, promoting vigor and balance. To use, set your daily intention upon this incandescent pearl, then repeat it, traveling around to each bead until you come back home, syncing with the breath to mimic the ebb and flow of the tides.

It's been two weeks of travel and house-jumping, and I'm so grateful to be back home! Last night, Mark and I honored the full moon by going on a lazy moonlit walk through our local park, bringing light to what didn't serve us this past month, and setting intentions for the moon ahead. It's been a challenging few weeks for me health-wise, but I love the medicine of the moon, reminding us to live in trust that all things exist in cycle, and that all we need is already with us, or well on its way. I've felt called to this medicine so strongly recently, so I've been making so many yummy Rainbow Moonstone pieces to honor that call of Moon, the divine feminine: helping us step back and hold space for the truth of abundance and grace orbiting home to our hearts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How was this month for you, my loves? If you'd like to, be brave and name the intention you're calling home to you this next moon cycle in the comments! Let's all hold space for each other. This moon, I'm honoring healing, balance, trust, and inviting more opportunity to sing throughout daily life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

for being my jewelry model here! She's sporting my AAA grade Tanzanite and Sterling Silver Sparkler on top, now available in my shop! 1 left, close-up in next photo. (Tap to Purchase.) The AMAZING large AAA-grade Amethyst Pendant below isn't available in my shop yet, but DM me for details!
Tanzanite have a soft, wise energy. As one of twelve synergy stones, they boast a high vibrational frequency said to inspire beauty not only in the eye of the beholder, but enchanting the mental and emotional state of the wearer! This delicate but sumptuous sparkler is part of my "everyday sparkle" line, designed to be worn alone for a daily dose of glimmer, or layered with a longer necklace, as shown in the image gallery. Tanzanite energetically pairs particularly well with Amethyst (as shown in the third picture) and is such a gentle but powerful Air Element to lift and enchant!

"There is something dense, united, settled in the depths,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
repeating its number, its identical sign.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How it is noted that stones have touched time,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
in their refined matter there is an odor of age,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
of water brought by the sea, from salt and sleep.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm encircled by a single thing, a single movement: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
a mineral weight, a honeyed light⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
cling to the sound of the word "noche":⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
the tint of wheat, of ivory, of tears,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
things of leather, of wood, of wool,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
archaic, faded, uniform,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
collect around me like walls.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I work quietly, wheeling over myself,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
a crow over death, a crow in mourning.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I mediate, isolated in the spread of seasons,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
centric, encircled by a silent geometry:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
a partial temperature drifts down from the sky,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
a distant empire of confused unities⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
reunites encircling me." - Pablo Neruda, "Unity" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It often stays me, this fantastical concept-- that gems and crystals, brewed in the earth for hundreds to millions of years-- can be ours to love and wear in the mere blip of our tiny lifespans. This poem "Unity" by Neruda expresses to me the awe of that state of being-- where we recognize just how mighty and majestic the world around us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Got to deliver this custom Pebbled Leather with HUGE Turquoise Gemstone Purse to its new owner today! Made 100% by hand, and inscribed with her personal intention (inked on parchment and stowed secretly behind the stone before setting, so it will be with her every time she opens it :) Swipe left for pics! 👈👈👈
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep, your eyes close.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Palbo Neruda's words have always felt so magical to me. It's been a whirlwind week, creating a custom Gemstone Purse that normally takes me 2 weeks in 3 8hr days. Then my amazing husband surprised me with tickets to see one of my favorite Shakespearean plays at the Old Globe Theatre tonight: "Much Ado About Nothing"! I can't wait to see it... it's been way too long since I've been to see a show, and my soul is doing jumping jacks! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, for all my beautiful newcomers, a little backstory: A million years ago, I was a BFA musical theatre major in college before I switched to music education because I wanted to know I was making a daily impact on the youth of our country. Since getting sick with late-stage Lyme and having my life totally shift from Music Teacher/Marathon Runner/Shoe Enthusiast to YA Fantasy Writer/Jewelry Designer/Rock Hound, there's so much from my old life I haven't touched. (Besides shoes. I still love shoes.) Going to the theatre tonight feels like a little gift: an open door to past dreams, past loves, past hopes that I felt I couldn't look at while I was too sick to do them. It was just too painful. But now, I'm healing and so grateful for all that came before and all that is today, seven years later. Living the entrepreneur life isn't easy, but it's mine and it's beautiful and maybe someday I'll be back on that stage, singing and dancing with the best of them, but for now, my stage is one I've built through years of turmoil and tenacity and tender self-care, and I LOVE IT. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What past love has been calling your soul lately? I'm off to a night at the the-a-taaaaa!!!

I have a confession to make. I didn't know if I could do this. I designed this piece based not on the front, but the back. I wanted to create a strong, minimal cuff with very few points of contact. And I wanted to do it all in my tiny in-home studio with my little micro torch. It took a lot of time and mistakes, and maybe a little whimpering at times 😂-- but I am overjoyed with the result! I love the flashy cobalt and aqua blue that magically appears inside this Labradorite at certain angles, and the hand-textured band I made to resembled damp, mottled wood. But my favorite part is the back: the part where you see the raw slip of the stone, the unpolished side, the REALNESS underneath. The smooth underbelly of the band where I stamped the words that slowly brought me back after years of depression with chronic Lyme: "See Beauty Everywhere." The little secret only I will know is there, but that I'll remember every time I wear her. (Slide for pics) 👈
This is my first cuff, so I'm wearing her everywhere to ensure the design is as sound as I think it is, but already I'm so pleased with its performance, and have gotten so many compliments! (On the day I finished it, I had to take my poor little cat in for an emergency vet appointment, and the office loved it, lol. Animal lovers have great taste! My little guy is doing better, by the way.) 😺
So I guess I just wanted to introduce you to my greatest design achievement yet! It's not perfect--- but neither am I. And beauty does not demand perfection. ❤️ #SeeBeauyEverywhere
So psyched with how this turned out! A MASSIVE Aquamarine stone capped with Black and White Australian Crystals, with one gorgeous AAA grade Black Rutilated Quartz floating above. I added three AAA-grade Black Spinel into one side of the chain (also framing the clasp) for some asymmetrical edge reminding us of the divine beauty in imperfection, and to boost the power of these Elements.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Aquamarine is the cardinal WATER stone, connecting with the throat and heart chakras. It cultivates a tender, soothing space so our hearts may open to love (both from others, and from ourselves-- which in my opinion is even more important!) and releases blockages in the throat, so we may speak and revel in our truth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Black Rutilated Quartz (STORM) purifies and heals, offering fortification and reprieve from the loudness of the world.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Black Spinel (WATER) eases anxiety and provides a firm standing block for us to present ourselves to the world, as the true, whole, magnificent creature we are. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
18", Sterling Silver⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love this piece so much, and while I'm biting my hands to keep from selfishly claiming her (designer problems) I'm so excited to put her out into the world for another beautiful soul to enjoy! One of a kind, not currently listed on my website. Message/comment/email for availability! (SOLD!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"Rise up nimbly and go on your strange journey to the ocean of meanings.... Leave and don't look away from the sun as you go, in whose light you're sometimes crescent, sometimes full." -Rumi⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That last line... gah! Reading that was such a beautiful reminder for me that change is constant, evolution is implicit to life, and just because you're in the shade doesn't mean the sun isn't shining above the clouds. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To all of you who stopped by the La Jolla Open Aire Market looking for me, I'm so sorry I missed you! I'm back from the east coast, but a darn mischievous cold seems to have snuck back with me. I'll be back next week, with so many amazing new gemstone creations to share! In the interim, if you're on my newsletter, I put out a little ditty this morning on my FIVE FAVORITE GEMSTONES FOR TRAVEL. If you're curious what stones support and nourish us throughout our journies, send me your email and I'll send it your way! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"When you squeeze an orange, orange juice comes out, because that’s what’s inside. When you are squeezed, what comes out is what is inside." - Dr. Wayne Dyer⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Okay, this quote may seem random, but it has a story, I promise. This past weekend, I had so many beautiful encounters at the back-to-back markets. I got to adorn lots of new and known faces with new gemstones.... AAANNNDDD experienced my first theft. (Sigh.) At the end of the day, it would be easy to focus on the one violation of trust, instead of the countless smiles, thank yous, and synergistic connections. I'm choosing to believe that whoever this person was, he/she needed that bracelet more than I did. We never know how life squeezes someone. All we can do is work on what we do when life squeezes us.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In other news, I am flying off to the east coast next week, so I'll be taking a little break from social media while I spend time with my amazing family, and celebrate the love of two dear friends joining hearts and hands. I'll see you back here in a week! Until then, wishing you all the most beautiful finale to your month. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." - Rumi⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Not an easy piece of wisdom to absorb, and yet so incredibly potent. So often I am reminded just how strong the story we tell ourselves is. We speak over 50,000 words to ourselves EVERY. DAMN. DAY. That's a novella we're reading aloud in our minds, daily! It's a lifelong practice, learning to recognize and shift our own self-limiting beliefs, negative self-talk, or uncover that seemingly insignificant event when we were five that completely shifted our world view as an adult. And yet how good does it feel to suddenly see a wall we didn't know we put up, keeping us from all the love, all the success, all the happiness we deserve-- give it a hug (for it protected us at one time)-- and dismantle it, brick by brick? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

(SOLD!) I'm loving this new Sun and Moon necklace I made recently! It features a gorgeous Rainbow Moonstone with glittering Sunstones asymmetrically set throughout the chain, to remind us of the beauty to be found in imperfection. Moonstone connects softly to the divine feminine, while Sunstone embraces the divine masculine, embodying the duality in all things. A special piece for when you want to give her the sun and the moon!
Since I was a child, my happy place was always up on a hill. Maybe it's simply because when I was five, my parents built the house I grew up in on the hill behind our first house. (Yes, we moved THAT far 🤣.) Maybe in another life, I learned that high ground equalled safety. Maybe it's compensation for being just barely 5'2. Whatever the reason, I've spent my life finding hilltop sanctuaries.
In childhood, it was my home, watching the sunset beyond the mountains of the Hudson Valley. In college, it was "Three Man Hill," so named for the three aluminum sculptures standing watch at the crest. Here in San Diego, it's my little balcony overlooking a canyon, where the houses built into the hillside across from me resemble a provincial French countryside in the magic of the morning mist. The other day, my husband and I spent a joyous Saturday going to open houses just for fun (found our perfect home, only a paltry 1.35 million... haha. In San Diego, that's a "starter" home!😂) It was, of course, on a hill.
What's your happy place look like? Is it in the woods, beneath a tree, curled next to a crackling fire? Or just standing next to the people you love? Reminisce with me :) Amazing Photo By: Felix Russell Saw .

I’ve spent the past week playing with a nice camera for the first time. It’s been quite the learning curve- I never knew how easy I had it with my good old point-n-shoot (aka iPhone 😂)- but such fun! I still have so much to learn, and am making tons of mistakes along the way, but as one of my favorite teachers once told me: there is no such thing as failure, only feedback. 🙌🙌🙌 This is a shot I took my first day shooting of my signature Turquoise and Gold-Filled Waterfall Fringe Necklace, newly updated at a shorter length with a 2” extender and wire embellishments on both sides of the stones in case they flip around when you’re fighting off your scores of admirers. 😁 Hope you like it! Any photography aficionados, I’d appreciate your tips! ✨💙✨ Wishing you all a beautiful weekend ✨💙✨
