“I dreamt I was a carver of stones, until I woke up...
and realized the whole time they had been shaping me." ~ Maile
In 1993, I held an ancient strand of neolithic stone beads in my hand. In that moment, the shape of my world changed forever.
I felt a full body awakening, a remembrance.
A calling from the seed of all I’ve ever been, across centuries and continents.
A call to bridge the worlds of man and mineral.
When I sat to carve my first stone, I remembered its past, its present and I knew beyond knowing that this was my future.
Since that day, for over 20 years I have listened to the stones, bringing them to people all over the world who seek their guidance and outrageous beauty.
I serve as a conduit, cultivating a global circle of humanity with shared vision and heart.
A tribe who treasures nature’s gifts, and through their stones, treasures each other.
Every stone is hand carved in my studio in Santa Barbara, California.
