Thank you for visiting my blog site and learning more about Circle of Stones Jewelry!
Until I am able to re-design my website, I am hoping to use this blog site as my home base and to keep you informed of jewelry shows, events, my life as a jewelry artisan and designer, and the adventures of growing this business.
Circle of Stones Jewelry came into being in December of 2006. My business actually started in January of 2007. The name comes from a title to a book I read by Judith Durek called Circle of Stones...about women's struggle to find their voice, power and identity. I really resonated with her writings. They moved me as I was struggling at the time to find my own voice and place in this world. I've come a long way since that time.
I began Circle of Stones Jewelry with a focus on the metaphysical and spiritual qualities of the natural stones and gemstones I used in my designs. I designed custom peices for individuals that incorporated stones whose energies were beneficial to their life. All my creations are made with loving, healing and sacred intentions for the wearer whether they are made with natural stones, fabricated crystals, or metals. I found that customers were fascinated with the spiritual and energetic qualities of stones and would ask specially for stones that "protected" them or brought them "abundance" and "prosperity" or attracted "romantic love" into their lives. I had such fun suggesting stones and designing specific pieces for clients. This is the heart purpose of Circle of Stones Jewelry - to create sacred pieces that have purpose and meaning to those who will wear the creations.
From this intention, the universe delivered to me an opportunity to really produce pieces with deep meaning. In November of 2007, a member of Hilde Girls died suddenly and tragically in a car accident. She was only 17 years old. Her mother was also a member of this special group of women. We were all devastated. I created a pair of earrings for the mother called Helena's Wings in memory of her daughter. Everyone wanted a pair, so I decided to give back and after selling the 100th pair, I donated $1000 in Helena's name to the Invisible Children of Uganda, Africa - a charity close to this young girl's heart. I am now working on a line of jewelry in memory of Helena that will continue to donate to her cause and a new line of jewelry for Davis, another young man who died suddenly and tragically in 2007. Each line will donate money to the charity of each families choice. This brings true meaing to what I do and makes me feel like I am truly giving back to humanity in more than one way - through beauty and through service to those in need around the world.
To purchase Helena's Wings (pictured above) or other commemorative pieces, please visit my On-Line Shop.
My commemorative line will soon spin off into it's own little division called Living Legacy Commemorative Jewelry by Asia Wolf Jewelry & Design. I am also developing a fashion line called Asia Wolf Jewelry that I hope to be able to mass produce through a "fair trade" situation benefitting women in some part of the world. At the moment, there is a possibility of working with a village in Swaziland, Africa. I will just put it out there with intention that I will be guided to the right people and places in the right and divine time.
