Gems, Jewels, Love and Life
Be that person. December 16 2016, 1 Comment
Today I stumbled upon this video on Facebook and was deeply touched as well as incredibly inspired.
Loving and embracing my body has been a lifelong journey for me, from being too skinny as a child to having acne-prone skin during puberty. The curves of young adulthood, and now the midlife signs of "aging".
It's always so easy to see and appreciate the beauty in others, no matter the shape, size or age of their body, but somehow, it seems so challenging to give myself the same treatment. And it saddens me.
I've come a long way, but I find myself constantly working on this as there seems to always be new things to accept, embrace and love with this ever-changing physical body.
This video, this woman, truly inspired me. So I had to share. While watching it I even had the thought "Perhaps I'll just allow my hair to go grey naturally..." (for the first time).
Perhaps someday I too will completely stop criticizing myself and simply celebrate every day I am given in this miraculous body. Changes and all.
One thing I know is that I will keep striving. #bethatperson
Thank you Rachel. Keep shining your bright light.
Stone: PERIDOT May 06 2014, 0 Comments
I love this gemstone so much. Green has always been such a soothing, comforting and grounding color for me, feeling like trees, plants & nature. So vibrant and full of life.
This gorgeous stone is a great companion during periods of change and growth, and perfect for transition. It helps strengthen our sense of self and teaches us to hear and trust our inner voice of intuition. It clears our channels so we can receive guidance.
I'm selling a lot of Peridot pieces these days, which has me working with the stone almost every day. Definitely not a coincidence, as I'm in the middle of a big transition myself...
Stones are amazing! And SO beautiful.

Stone: CHERRY QUARTZ April 25 2014, 0 Comments
This is the sister-stone of the well known Rose Quartz; a darker, more vibrant version of it. But it carries the same gentle, nurturing energy and is filled with love vibration. It is a powerful gem to soften and open the heart, and is particularly effective at promoting self-love.
A wonderful choice for wedding jewelry if the color calls to you (and matches your theme!) as it encourages the flow of love between its wearer and those around her.
I also recommend this gem for children. The young hearts are in their natural, open state and this stone aids in maintaining that openness through the challenges that accompany childhood (peer pressure, etc...)
Plus this warm shade of pink is so girly and fun!

Welcome to my blog! April 23 2014, 0 Comments
Welcome to my blog!
I've been resisting this whole "blog" thing for a long time even though it kept pulling at me gently, calling me softly... Until the call became anything but soft and the pull far from gentle. So here I am. Blogging.
Communicating & sharing has always been a very important aspect of who I am, ever since I started speaking. And writing has been an significant communication tool ever since I learned the alphabet many years ago. Letters, cards, notes, stories, and later emails texts and social media posts... and now blogging.
This will be a space for me to share thoughts, ideas and feelings about all kinds of topics. Jewelry, stones, femininity and fashion will definitely be a part of it, but I also want this to be a place to share about life in general. Love and fear, triumphs and challenges; the whole spectrum in all its glory.
And I want this to be a two way street. I want to hear from you, so please feel free to share your own thoughts, ideas and feelings on all the various subjects I will present here.
Thank you for being a part of my journey.
With love & gratitude,
