Blue dyed Howlite wrapped in Copper

I am learning and do believe I am getting better at wrapping stones. I love working with the wire and the stone actually "tells" me how to wrap it.

Howlite is a super-calming stone and many people use it to releive stress of all kinds. It makes an excellent antidote to insomnia due to an overactive mind.

Focusing on a piece of howlite can assist in journeying outside the body and gaining insight from past lives. Placed on the third eye, it opens memories of previous times and lifetimes. Howlite strengthens memory and stimulates desire for knowledge. It teaches patience and helps to eliminate rage, pain and stress. Calms communication, facilitates awareness and encourages emotional expression.

Place a howlite stone in your pocket to absorb your own anger - or another's anger that is directed toward you. It helps to overcome critical or selfish behavior

Howlite balances calcium levels in the body. It aids teeth, bones and soft tissue.

Handwrapped quartz Peridot Labradorite and Haematite bracelet

This dainty bracelet is perfect for that night out!

It is hand wrapped and the stones are Clear Quartz, Peridot, Labradorite, and Haematite

These semi precious gemstones carry with them these properties:

Clear Quartz:

Quartz enhances energy by absorbing, storing, amplifying, balancing, focusing and transmitting. It channels universal energy. Quartz also enhances thoughts, as they are a form of energy. Because it directs and amplifies energy, it is extremely beneficial for manifesting, healing, meditation, protection, and channeling. It is also beneficial for storing and retrieving information of all types, as information is a form of energy pattern also. This makes them particularly good for programming. Due to its ability to balance, quartz is excellent for harmonizing and balancing one's environment. Quartz is also good for energizing other crystals.


This stone is known as "the healers
stone" as it helps in aiding people who
work in healing others to cleanse their
auras and release neutralizing the
toxins on all levels.


Labradorite is said to provide quick relief from anxiety, hopelessness and depression, replacing them with enthusiasm, self-confidence and inspiration. It is said to dispel negativity and to bring clear understanding by enhancing clarity of thought and improving one's ability to cooperate with others in harmony.

Labradorite is also said to give perseverance, strength and enhanced intuition when one is experiencing times of conflict and change. Labradorite is told to be helpful in treating eye and brain disorders, and to help regulate metabolism and the digestive process.


Hematite, also spelled Haematite, is the mineral form of Iron Oxide.

Hematite grounds and protects us. It strengthens our connection with the earth, making us feel safe and secure. It endows us with courage, strength, endurance and vitality. A "stone for the mind", Hematite stimulates concentration and focus, enhancing memory and original thought.

Hematite utilises the magnetic qualities of our yin-yang energies to balance the meridians within the body and to provide a stable equilibrium between the ethereal nervous system and the physical nervous system. It focuses energy and emotions for balance between the body, mind and spirit.

Dissolves negativity and prevents you from absorbing the negativity of others. Haematite is strong, supporting timidity, boosting self-esteem and survivability, enhancing willpower and reliability, and imparting confidence. It helps to overcome compulsions and addictions, treating overeating, smoking and other forms of overindulgence.

Haematite restores, strengthens and regulates the blood supply, aiding blood conditions such as anaemia. It supports the kidneys and regenerates tissue. Stimulates the absorption of iron and formation of red blood cells. Treats leg cramps, anxiety and insomnia. Hematite aids spinal alignment and fractures.

Selling art and jewelry for a cause!

I originally set up this new Etsy shop to sell my jewelry to benefit Art4TH and am including digital prints with all the proceeds going to The Greater New Orleans Foundation to help with the Gulf Coast fishermen who can no longer support their families.

A lot of people have been thinking about the animals and the environment--which we should! But many have ignored those who make it possible for that shrimp scampi or them crawfish. I'm talking about the fishermen.

Their lives depend on fishing. They take care of their families, pay their bills, and much more by fishing. Take their source of money away and they could end up homeless and hungry.

So to purchase art to help the fishermen or jewelry to help Art4TH go to
