Go Gators!


Just added to my Jewelry link, this handmade (by me) bracelet will make any Florida Gator smile! I combined blue Lapis Lazuli, offering wisdom and truth, with orange, motivational Carnelian, to round out this piece. Football season is around the corner…

I will periodically highlight some of my bracelets on the blog portion of my site, but to see more pieces, just click the Jewelry link…

Buddha Groove


“They say good things always come in threes. Such is the case with this elegant gemstone ring; triple stones means a triple dose of healing energy.” –Buddha Groove

Giving a shout out to a wonderful company I stumbled upon…

Buddha Groove has an amazing selection of jewelry, apparel, home items, and healing gemstones. I first saw their goods on Facebook. After jewelry from the site appeared, reappeared, and reappeared again, I decided to have a look. This particular three stone amethyst ring had caught my eye.

I was intrigued by the lovely amethyst stones and sterling silver textured band which was reminiscent of tree branches. It is beautiful, unique, and well made. And I love supporting small businesses.

So if you are interested in some inspiring jewelry visit buddhagroove.com.

Mala madness…

Jeane Verger Jewelry

So I’d like to introduce you to another amazing artisan, Jeanne Verger (https://jeannevergerjewelry.com/). One of the many reasons for which I admire Jeanne is her decision to leave the security of life in corporate America to pursue her bliss.

“It all started with my love for making mala beads. I loved the process of connecting to my heart, designing and knotting each gemstone and infusing them with positive intentions and affirmations,” Jeanne writes.

Jeanne would gift her malas to strangers but later recognized her calling to create exquisite and meaningful jewelry could evolve into an opportunity to positively influence women around the world.

Jeanne carefully selects her gemstones, and her malas are as beautiful as they are inspiring. Her collection of these along with her gemstone inspiration bracelets, wrist malas, and new Bali pieces offer something special for everyone. Jeanne even creates a selection of men’s bracelets.

So if you need your spirit lifted, your purpose defined, or you simply want some incredible accessories, check out Jeanne’s site. I have a feeling you’ll become a fan just like me!

Stay groovy…







My latest acquisition…


So I had a meeting downtown, and as I departed during rush hour, I faced a virtual parking lot on SR 408. Not wanting to move at a glacial pace, I took a detour to visit one of my favorite shops in Orlando. As I entered the Gypsy Apothecary Herb and Metaphysical Shoppe (https://www.gypsyherbshop.com/), I basked in the instant feeling of peace and serenity. One of the thousand things I love about the Gypsy Apothecary is that it feeds my passion for herbs and crystals. I also appreciate that it is a small, locally owned business.

As I prepared to purchase my honeysuckle (a must have herb in your home apothecary to ward off illness), I caught a glimpse of some beautiful rings. I was immediately attracted to the one pictured above. This silver plated prehnite ring was calling my name. It was not only lovely, but the prehnite is a significant crystal for any collector.

“Prehnite is considered a stone of unconditional love and the crystal to heal the healer.  It enhances precognition and inner knowing.  Enables you always to be prepared.  Prehnite calms the environment and brings peace and protection.  It teaches how to be in harmony with nature and the elemental forces.”
