Leaving soon for the Tucson Gem Show!

Chrysoprase Pendant


Stone Story:

Known as the stone to help heal the broken heart...

Not only the inevitable broken heart of being human;
The broken heart of love lost and dreams shattered.
But  also the original broken heart;
The thought that we are separate.

The energy of Chrysoprase activates within us
the innate memory of our oneness.
The remembrance that we are all made up of the same stardust.
Bringing a sense of true belonging
and sovereign confidence.
A master teacher and glorious ally.



My foray to the Tucson Gem Show this year 
marks a quarter of a century of attendance!

What surfaces as my deep desire this year is
allowing gorgeous, rare and unusual pieces of rough to surface,  
so I can bring them home to cut into magnificent pendants.
So much has changed over these 25 years 
and yet much is still the same.
The relationships with the people of the gem show
are wonderful and whacky.  
We seldom see each other more than 30 minutes each year,
maybe an occasional shared lunch or dinner.  
Yet, so many feel like dear old friends.

We all continue to congregate to this desert town,
from every nook and cranny of this beautiful planet
to marvel and share our love for these beautiful beings. 

My intention is to wander the Gem Show with beginner mind, 
curiosity at the core with a topping of gratitude. 
Allowing guidance to dazzle, surprise and delight me.

P.S. I know I haven't been great about keeping up
with social media for the last few years...
 This year I will do my best to take you along 
and show you a glimpse of the magic!

allowing you a window into its mysterious world...

Soothing the nervous system,
Opening the heart,
allowing for more spaciousness and awareness.
When I feel this green garnet on my skin
I there is a calming.
I notice the receiving of my breath.
I notice the beating of my heart...
