Announcement   I use semi-precious gemstones from several sources: gem shows, private dealers, estate sells and reputable gemstone dealers. I do not use anything other than semi-precious gemstones for my healing crystal products.

About one-third of the stretch jewelry I make is on the thinnest stretch cord available due to the minuscule nature of many of the bead holes. I have recently found the strongest version available for the .05mm cord I use, but that is still the thinnest available in this variety of stretch cord. This makes each piece extremely DELICATE. They should be handled with care.

The rest of the bracelets are made on .07mm and .08mm cord, which is somewhat hardier, but it is still not meant for anyone pulling at the bracelets, kids grabbing them roughly, or even hard party nights.

I offer free re-stringing on any piece. And yes, that means for the life of the piece. All I ask is that you mail the piece back, and I can re-string it. This does not take more than two business days under most circumstances. If it occurs near a holiday or one of my buying trips, the wait time might be extended by a time to be later determined.

I am constantly experimenting with additional types of stretch material and recently moved from glue to hypo cement. For the rings and the necklaces, I can also suggest that if you want something a bit hardier than the elastic cord, and you have bought a ring from me before, so you know what size from me fits you properly, I offer the option of stringing the beads on Accuflex Coated Wire. The only drawback to this is that it does not stretch. If you would prefer the Accuflex option, all you need to do is tell me in a convo or a note when you order. I can offer this as well for the bracelets but please remember, there are no findings. The bracelet will have to be big enough to slip over your hand and will then be most likely, one or two sizes larger. Again, it will no longer be a stretch bracelet.

I also would appreciate any customer letting me know if a piece has broken before posting negative feedback. As many of my customers have learned, I strive for great customer service and I am more than reasonable.

Just a note: I can guarantee these bracelets, rings and necklaces will not stay in one piece if anyone grabs at them and yanks. This includes children, significant others, pets and anyone else.

It is also a good idea to order the jewelry just slightly bigger than what your wrist measures. This adds undue stress on the elastic. It is also far more comfortable for you. For instance, if you measure your wrist with a tape measure and it is 6.5 inches and tight, then you are better off ordering a size 7. My wrist is just under 6.5 and I always end up preferring size 7. It is a personal choice, but I believe it adds to the overall lifespan of the piece.

Please Note: If you lose pieces, I cannot always guarantee that I will have the same beads. I keep as many in stock as long as possible but sometimes the supplies change and that is beyond my control. I do scour bead shows as well as obscure bead shops to find any extras that I am running low on.

ANY SOLD OUT ITEMS: If you would like to order an item that is sold out, please contact me. I can work with you and let you know what beads I can replace that are similar. I can even take photos of some beads to give you an idea what might be substituted.

Not only has listening to the sounds from Chris made me far more relaxed as I work but it has helped me focus on many money- making ideas beyond my Etsy shop. In fact, between using my citrine and aventurine bracelets and using Chris' money-making tones, I have come up with so many ideas, I have to schedule times to work on these goals in addition to filling orders for my shop here and my writing jobs.

As I shop more on Etsy, I will add to this list and recommend anyone I feel has enriched my outlook on life, money and happiness.

I love this Pyrite tree more than I can explain. It has a fascinating energy about it. I can’t wait to place it in my office. 😊. Romi and her products and her customer service are always top notch!

I can’t live without this spray. It cleans the energy out of my office each night when I leave. It’s a must for me. I take it when I travel too and use it in hotel rooms. It’s fantastic. Romi is the best!

Full moons are great for manifesting and a perfect time to create positive opportunities for yourself.
I took this photo during a 4-day wildlife and landscape photography workshop in British Columbia.
I've created a new line of Gem Elixirs. This is the first one: Black Tourmaline with Dalmatian Sage. It's become one of my best sellers! For when you need extra protection from especially negative individuals and situations.
A bag of gemstones beads that I bought from the Tucson Gem Show last month. I just like to look at all the mixed up colors for inspiration.

About

Jewelry, Healing Crystals and Aromatherapy Products to make you feel great

I ventured into making the Energy Bracelets because I was dealing with two things: some situations that seemed to generate copious amounts of bad energy and a decade of insomnia. After discovering how Black Tourmaline can help clear negative energy, I did a bit more research about the energy in stones. I decided to try stones to help me sleep. And to my amazement, about three to four weeks after first using my dream bracelet, I started being able to fall asleep for the first time in years.

Chasing the Dragonfly energy bracelets and rings evolved through both my personal needs and the needs of my clients. I only use semi-precious gemstones, no filler glass beads. This is simply because the stones I use are for specific purposes with specific energies. I do my best to make the bracelets both healing and aesthetically pleasing. If you are allergic to anything such as cooper or other metals, you should note that stones such as lapis and malachite can cause skin irritation.

I am excited to be a part of the Etsy Community and look forward to making customers feel good about themselves through my jewelry--outwardly and inwardly. Because jewelry is about expressing who you are and enhancing your personal dreams.
