Laura Sanger Watkins' Profile

About

I'm a bit of a poet/musician ex-vagabond, now living in New Milford, CT after spending time in the Midwest, West Coast, and New York City. Some of my past jobs include: running a carousel, reading tarot cards on a 900#, handing out bags of chips and salsa on the street corner, assistant to the president of an independent record label, "Igor" on a Haunted Hayride, astrological counsellor, and secretary. I am passionate about the little joys in life, like cute shoes, great jewelry, and finding that perfect vintage find at estate sales or thrift stores.

Beading since 1988, I had moved on to other forms of artistic expression like scrapbooking and collage, but the call of the beading wild had me dig out my stash and try things in a new way, with the eye of a collage artist. I use paper elements in some of my designs, like my fun paper-under-acrylic pendants. Lots of times I use beads from…

Beading since 1988, I had moved on to other forms of artistic expression like scrapbooking and collage, but the call of the beading wild had me dig out my stash and try things in a new way, with the eye of a collage artist. I use paper elements in some of my designs, like my fun paper-under-acrylic pendants. Lots of times I use beads from old costume jewelry that I've destroyed for that purpose.

I love to work with semi-precious gemstones for their metaphysical properties, and how they work together to enhance someone's astrological personality.

I’ve been making jewelry since I was 19 and studying Astrology for over 30 years, reading Natal Charts professionally for 20. I have also been a big fan of healing crystals since the mid-90’s, and would often read someone’s Natal Chart and then offer them a “prescription” for certain crystals that would enhance their Sun Sign and balance their energies. One of my client/friends said, “Ugh, I can’t imagine carrying a bunch of stones around in my pants, can you make me a bracelet or something?” and *LIGHTBULB* I’ve been making customized astrological jewelry ever since.

I can create very specific healing crystal jewelry based upon the natal chart of the wearer - just send me the exact date, time, and place where you or your recipient was born and I will cast the natal chart and use it as a guide to best select the stones that will reflect the wearer's energy. It would be a totally unique necklace or bracelet.

Lately I've been big into wearing big beautiful flowers in my hair and have decided to make a bunch of extra ones for you!

Feel free to convo me if you've got something special in mind that I can custom design just for you, especially if you are interested in astrological jewelry.
