Handmade Jewelry, Sun Catchers, and more!

Boulder Junction, Wisconsin

Announcement    Welcome to my shop. You will find handcrafted jewelry, rosaries, and one of a kind sun catchers.

All of my work is made by hand and I tap into the inherent connection between people and nature. Custom orders welcome; together let’s create something you love and makes you feel like the beautiful person you truly are.

My creative focus is handcrafted prayer beads, gemstone jewelry, and really awesome sun catchers with huge Crystal balls. Nature in its many forms is the bedrock of my inspiration especially birch trees, acorns, driftwood, leaves, flowers, mushrooms, and feathers. Recently, I’ve added dried cholla cactus wood from the desert to my design elements. Many of my beads are made from wire, clay, resin, beads, and paint. This makes my work is one of a kind.

Soul Stories are custom orders. Message for more info. My Soul Story Art TM wall art is about YOU, your life journey depicted through sacred geometry, juicy watercolors, special effects, and more based on your answers to my questionnaire. The questionnaire is key as it allows you to craft your Soul Story by telling me what resonates for you with colors, feelings, goals; a lens into how you process your life. I write a detailed document and send it with your finished piece which has interesting details unique to you based on your zodiac sign, goals, favorite colors, and more. Expect about 2-4 weeks before your Soul Story Art TM is complete.

About GemsOfMalini

Sales 16
On Etsy since 2020

Art with heart and soul making you and your life more beautiful

I am inspired by nature, solitude, peacefulness. It is what renews and refreshes my spirit. Living near Lake Superior in the far northern part of Wisconsin provides a lot of creative inspiration. My work is done solely by me, by hand. I make prayer beads including Malas, Anglican rosaries, Catholic rosaries, and Pearls of Life.

Sun Catchers are made with large crystal balls and all different beads, wire sculpts, crystals, recycled cutlery, bottle caps. No two are alike. Driftwood or cholla make up the horizontal "bar" from which the components hang. When you receive your sun catcher, it will be ready to hang on your deck. These are one of a kind sculptures.

My handcrafted jewelry is made with gemstones, wire, precious metal, crystals, and a variety of findings. Each piece is designed to wear comfortably and be durable. If you would like a custom made piece, please send me a message to begin the conversation.

Cold processed soap is made in small batches using mostly organic ingredients including olive oil, Shea butter, coconut oil, and essential oils. Fragrance oils used are not organic.

Herbal infused oils are made using a proprietary extraction method. These are high quality and the finest you can buy. The oils are infused with wildcrafted St. Johns Wort blossoms, organic Lavender buds, organic calendula blossoms, and more. My salves are made using these oils as the base.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders are welcome. Expect special orders to take 2-4 weeks depending on what you request. Materials may need to be special ordered, there is design consultation and finalization, the creation/building process, curing, etc. My work is high quality, well built, well made, and professionally finished whether it’s a customized sun catcher, painting, prayer bead or piece of jewelry. Please contact me with ideas or questions. I will keep you updated on the progress of your order.

Soul Story Mandala Paintings

How is my Soul Story Art created?
After your payment is received, I email you a confidential questionnaire that focuses on facts about you and your life path. You email the completed form back to me and I begin the creation and design process. You can choose to have me draw a card to determine your totem animal, or if you know you can tell me. If you want a card drawn about your soul path, I can do that also. It’s all covered in the questionnaire.

What is mixed media?

Mixed media is artwork that is rendered using a variety of art products. For Soul Story Art, I use both soft and hard surfaces, professional quality watercolor and acrylic paints and mediums, crystals, beads, cold press watercolor paper, acid free markers, metallics, charcoal, and more. Because each piece is unique, the variety of materials varies. The finished artwork will have a high gloss finish which I find outstanding for this interpretation.
SunCatchers are made using driftwood, forged copper, crystals, beads, charms, and other materials.
Prayer beads vary depending on the type you choose. I make rosaries, Anglican beads, malas, and pearls of life.

Sizing details

What size is the finished piece? Your completed Soul Story Art will be 11” x 14” and about 1” thick. It is lightweight and will be ready to hang on your wall. The hanging hardware is professionally installed on the back. You will need a nail in the wall.
Crystal Sun Catchers are usually 6-12” across and they hang 18-24” below the driftwood cross bar. It is ready to hang on your deck or in a window.
Prayer beads vary depending on the type you choose.

Care instructions

Gently wipe your Soul Story with a soft slightly damp cloth or you can lightly dust it with a feather duster. Be gentle with it especially around the crystals and beads. The crystal sun catchers will hang outside and can be gently wiped with a soft, damp cloth. It’s best to hang them where there is some protection from the elements but it is built to live out of doors. Remove rust with 000 steel wool. Then apply a light coat of wax and buff with soft cloth.. I just let them patina naturally. Prayer beads can be wiped with a soft cloth or jewelry polishing cloth. Do not put them in tumblers or ultrasonic jewelry cleaning machines.

Refunds and exchanges

Yes, of course. Please contact me with any issues and I will resolve them as quickly as possible. I get few returns, but my policy could not be clearer. You can return for refund for any reason for 10 days!! I must receive the item before refund can be made. Please email me before your return. Shipping charges are not refundable.

Do you offer repairs?

Repairs and restringing are available on many items including rosaries, necklaces, sun catchers, etc. Price is based on the job and the materials used. My repairs include using high quality, professional bead stringing wire. If you want sterling silver or gold filled metals used, the prices will be substantially higher. It works best to have a video or phone chat so that I can find out what you want. Of course, if it’s a piece that I made, it will be remade using the same quality materials and workmanship. Allow 4-6 weeks or longer for repair completion - supplies may need to be ordered and at this time I am experiencing shipping delays from most of my suppliers. Message me for a quote.

Do you make custom prayer beads and rosaries?

Yes, I am happy to make a custom set for you. Price is based on the type of beads, length, and type of cross or crucifix. You should have an idea of what main color you would like and I can make suggestions for accents. I use 49 strand beading wire, used for the finest jewelry. This makes for elegant and beautiful drape (the way the rosary lays), and sturdiness. Send me a message and I can email, text, or phone you to discuss this in full. Please allow 4-6 weeks especially if materials will need to be ordered. Some of my beads are imported from around the world. Thank you for shopping at Gems of Malini.
