Thanks for stopping by!

I love stones... cool, sparkly, vibrant, soft, delicate and tough all at the same time... I'm taking that love and turning it into something fun in the form of my Etsy store. Ok, mostly so I have a great excuse to keep buying more stones, but also because I want to share the treasures I've found!

I hand picked all the stones you will find here for their quality, color and sparkle. In my listings you will find everything from bead strands and individual focal beads to handmade jewelry items. I hope you enjoy!

Please contact me if you have any questions or requests - I have done my best to photograph things as accurately as possible, but my camera skills are still a work in progress.
See my listings for beautiful beads, cabochons and more; tourmaline, ametrine, chalcedony, gold and black rutilated quartz, druzy, watermelon tourmaline, pearls, citrine, moonstone, spinel, topaz, labradorite, amethyst, coral, sapphire and more!


Payment is accepted via Paypal and is requested as soon as you make a purchase. I will ship only to Paypal confirmed addresses. If payment isn't received within 3 day of purchase, I will cancel the sale and relist the item.


Shipping will be done within 48 hours of reciept of payment, Monday to Friday, by Canada Post/USPS.

If you are outside Canada, you are responsible for any customs/duties your country applies.

I love Canada, but Canada Post kinda sucks - no tracking numbers are available on the reasonably priced shipping...

For higher priced items I have to charge a bit more to cover the shipping that includes coverage for loss or damage in case something goes awry.

If you would like trackable or priority shipping, just let me know - I'm happy to do it anytime. To the US I'd estimate it will cost around $15-25.

Refunds and Exchanges

For now, all items are final sale but if there is a problem with your purchase please email me and hopefully we can work something out depending on the situation.
