Host a Jewelry Circle

Do you enjoy hanging out with your friends at a coffee shop or other favorite laid-back venue? And do you also love jewelry? Cool jewelry? One-of-a-Kind jewelry that people comment on when you wear it? If so, you would enjoy hosting a Jewelry Circle for your friends.

It's simple and you get Free and Discounted jewelry, too!

Call me and we will book a date that works for you. You can choose a location. Your home, a coffee shop, restaurant, place of work, conference room, outdoors at a park...I am flexible and my jewelry is too. It goes anywhere...almost...maybe not underwater...but, you know what I mean. Then invite whoever you want to invite - especially those that love jewelry.

Anyway, here is what I gift you with for hosting a Jewelry Circle:

1. 50% off a pair of earrings for booking
2. $25 Jewelry Voucher the day of your Jewelry Circle
3. If Jewelry Circle sales are $250 or more, you receive another $25 Jewelry Voucher

So, you can potentially get the jewelry you love for FREE or drastically reduced! The vouchers can also be used towards a custom piece. And you get to have some laid back fun with your girlie friends. I do make men's jewelry so if you want to invite your hot guy friends, I'm there with the leather and the hemp to make your men happy! lol!

Jewelry Circles can be as sacred and meditative as you would like or light and breezy. You decide. If you would like to donate your vouchers towards a cause, I will do that, too!

Call now to set up a date (512-576-5297). These Jewelry Circles are great for networking, Ladie's Nights, Bachelorette Parties, Birthday Parties, to entertain family when they come to visit, Dinner Parties, and just to have fun with friends!

Seeing Old Friends

At the Holistic Fair this last Saturday, I was so surprised to see a friend I had not seen in years! She received my email and came out to visit! It made my heart so happy! Then later I saw another friend I had not seen in many months...a fellow Hilde Girl who is not in our current session. It was great to catch up with her as well. Then I saw another Hilde Sis that came by.

Although doing shows, fairs, and events can be SO is so incredibly nice when friends show up to give their support. Makes the whole day so worth it! Truly!

It's really not about the sales or the traffic you receive at your booth, but about the friends you make and the friends that come by to support you as you build your dream. I have met so many nice people over the years as I have been doing my business. That is what counts! The connections and the relationships you build along the way.

And today, a close friend invited me over to show my jewelry to her in-laws who were visiting from Arkansas. We had a wonderful time! And they even invited me to stay with them if I come up to do a show in October!

This is what I am talking about! The loving connections are what make a business grow.

Here's to friends and loving, supportive customers! YOU ROCK!!!

Healing Blessings!

Custom Orders

Dear friends,

I just finished a custom order for a client. She saw a pair of earrings I had for sale in copper and crystal quartz and asked if I could make them in Sterling Silver...absolutely! I love it when a customer asks. Ask and ye shall receive, right? As a custom design artist, I enjoy getting requests.

So, if you have seen some of my creations and wish they were in a different metal or with a different stone combination, just ask. If I can create it, I gladly will. Nothing makes me happier than a happy customer!

Have a wonderful, joy-filled day!

Healing Blessings!

Vintage Design: All the Rage

Yes, I too have jumped on the vintage look design wagon. The combination of natural stones, crystals and vintage metals...yum! OMG! I just can't help myself. What is it with vintage at the moment? Here are my thoughts.

I think that as a humanity, we are wishing for simpler times of old. With a fast paced, stressed, technology driven society, sometimes just craving the old and familiar is comforting. Simple things bring comfort. Seeing an old key, a rusted door nail - just takes you back to another time. A time of no computers, cell phones, iPads...a time of rest. It reminds you of grandma or great grandma. Those regal and strong ladies who always looked so feminine and delicate and proper. The jewelry they wore was not new. It was usually an heirloom piece handed down from mother to daughter over the generations. Each piece had history and meaning and a story.

For those of you who have pieces like that, treasure them. If they are broken and in need of repair, repair them. If you would like to re-fashion an old piece into something that is wearable for today, give me a call and we can set up a private session to design you a special piece that incorporates your story, your history, your family.

And for those who may not have had such a long family history of heirloom jewelry being passed down to you, there is much to choose from in pieces being designed today that you may one day pass down to your children and their children.

Visit my Etsy Shop to find a piece that is right for you!

The Benefits of Wearing Quartz Crystal

Hello friends,

Today we are going to learn about Quartz Crystal. One of my favorite stones! It is a Crown Chakra stone. Actually, you can use it for any Chakra to balance and clear. Actually, you can use it to balance and clear anything! It is quite a versatile stone. There is much history about quartz. Too much to discuss in this forum. However, we would not be in the tech age without it. Computers exist because of quartz. How do you think all this data gets transferred so quickly and instantly around the world? Yep, quartz crystals!

And the Atlantians knew this. They used quartz to store information...lots of it. It is said that Atlantis was one of the most advanced civilizations to ever exist. Even by modern standards they were way ahead of us in their understanding of energetics and the use of crystals. Massive crystals located around the city were used for transferring information, transportation, and even mind control. Apparently, the fall of Atlantis occurred because they misused their power...they misused the gifts of mother nature against their own - other humans. Slavery existed - but in a more advanced state than how we know it through our history books. The peasant classes were mentally controlled by crystal energetics. Of course, this is all speculation and there are many other Atlantian mythologies that exist. Before the fall, it is said that those with knowledge were warned of the fall so they began to store all human knowledge in crystals which were then scattered all over the world during the destruction of Atlantis. You can find Atlantian crystals even to day. Just visit a metaphysical rock shop and ask if they carry any. They will not think you are weird. Lol! But don't go into a regular rock shop and ask...those people might think you are a bit strange.

Quartz can be programmed. This is how computers are "programmed." By programmed, I mean that you can set your intentions into quartz crystal or download energetic information into your quartz crystal. That's for another blog entry, though.

When I design pieces in quartz crystal, I first clear the quartz of previous owners, energies, and so forth. Then I program in or put my intentions into the piece for love, light, healing, harmony and peace. When you purchase a piece of quartz or jewelry made with quartz, you can clear and re-program it with your own intentions. I would highly recommend this especially if you know nothing of the designer or history of the piece.

The photo of the earrings you see above were created with quartz crystal rounds and copper. I love using copper. It is a healing metal and enhances the energies of any stones it is paired with. I think copper and crystal look great together. These earrings were programmed to bring balance and clarity to the wearer. Visit my Etsy Shop to purchase.
