Crystals and Gemstones

The earthiness of raw, rough gemstones such as citrine, amethyst, and turquoise really call to me.  Each stone is said to be known for its unique properties of empowerment and intention, along with its own rich history.  While designing my jewelry I keep in mind the intention I would like to imbue in each piece, and create it accordingly. I meet many artists who love to wear gemstones that are known to enhance creativity, for example. Others are looking to enhance their spiritual connection through the vibration and energy of stones and crystals.

This bracelet features a raw amethyst and turquoise, draped with Peruvian opals and wire worked in vermeil. Amethyst worn on your wrist is said to help attract abundance and prosperity, Turquoise is a stone of protection and is known to improve communication. I added Peruvian opals to calm the mind and build a strong connection to the beauty and tranquility of the sea. This piece is a personal favorite, and was bought by a friend of mine. It lives in Los Gatos presently!
