About

Miner Designer Artist Merchant

The crystals have been with me for most of my life. Some of my earliest memories are of afternoon walks with my mother to visit the quartz crystal pocket exposed by the railroad cut in the forest near our home. There were beautiful quartz points hanging from the ceiling of this small cave with groundwater dripping from their tips, the drips would hit the surface of the pool of water beneath them in a rhythmic fashion creating a certain pattern that was enchantingly melodic.
It was as if these crystals were singing to me in a musical mathematical language in which they told me their story and my own. I loved to sit for hours, listening to their song and pawing through the dirt, picking out perfect little clear quartz points, each one unique as a snowflake.
It was through these early on meditations with the crystals that I noticed my intuition and clairvoyance increase, an increase in the frequency of the co-incidences and my own manifestations.
I feel these events changed the course of my life and brought me closer to my true potential.

In 2003 i was living in Telluride Colorado and just getting into the different properties of stones. I was Learning about the different ways a stones frequency and effects can be measured and it opened a whole new world for me, rather than being a mystical craft of lore.
This new angle allowed me to combine scientific analysis with the metaphysical for a whole new understanding of this unknown crystalline realm. I decided I needed one of every kind, i wanted to have a complete collection of these tools that encompssed a plethora of uses.
But how would I accomplish that? how would i afford all that?
I decided I should try my artistic hand at crafting jewelry with wire, and through this forum i would work my way up, slowly amassing my collection.
So as the new year dawned a friend suggested we take a trip down to Tucson AZ for the largest gemstone tradeshow in the world....
Send me on my Way!

I spent the first three days comparing prices and gawking; but by the end of the week I had spent my savings, a thousand dollars. I was in business. And as they say, the rest is history!
