Crystal Creations to Inspire the Spirit

Based in Richmond, Virginia, The Inspired Spirit is a unique, holistically artistic jewelry trade.

The owner and artist, Heather Thompson, creates wearable works of art to inspire the spirit. Heather was born and raised in Virginia and is a VCU Grad with her Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts. Here is a little bit about what she has to say:

“As an artist, and a spiritual being, I have always cherished creation. I am profoundly inspired by nature; her beauty, her cycles, her resilience, and her power.

I have been creating ever since I was a child. Always inspired by the rhythms and patterns of nature, which has manifested in various mediums. As an artist, I think our creative work evolves as we do, making each moment and each creation a new experience.

I have roots in illustration and painting, and in recent years I have found an immense passion using crystals and other treasures of nature, making wearble art. These gems naturally draw upon the energies of earth and sky, and are very much alive with energy. I strive to accentuate the beauty inherent in each mineral, by adding my own creative touch, and each creation really begins to take on a life of its own.

My art embodies the everlasting thumbprint of our eternal cosmic connection, through both design and vibration. I seek to inspire and elevate the consciousness of those who experience my work and find that my own is uplifted during the creation process. This meaningful passion has become a current of energy that is then channeled on to you to love and enjoy! “

Started in 2012, The Inspired Spirit has grown tremendously over the years. Thousands of pieces have been shipped to all corners of the globe, spreading creativity and light to people everywhere. Heather does many events and festivals in the Richmond and surrounding areas and her pieces are starting to fill up the shelves of more boutiques, yoga studios, gift shops and art galleries alike.

Additional policies and FAQs
Inspired Jewelry Care:

Here are some good “rules” for ALL of your jewelry pieces:
• Remove when swimming or bathing.
• Remove when applying lotion, skincare or hair products.
• Do not expose to harsh chemicals or household cleaners.
• Avoid scenarios that can crush or catch delicate jewelry. (Be careful with sweaters and other woven clothing items that could snag).
• Do not throw jewelry into a drawer or pile with other jewelry or things that can damage it.

More specifics:


Like all jewelry, your wire wrapped jewelry needs to be properly cared for and cleaned. Correctly cleaning & caring for your jewelry can make a world of difference in preserving its beauty for years to come.

A safe, at-home cleaning practice is using soap and water. You’ll want to use warm water, gentle dish soap, and a SOFT toothbrush. Some extra dirty pieces may require soaking first. Never ‘dip’ your wire wraps in a cleaning solution, as not all stones can hold up to the harsh chemicals in many commercial jewelry cleaners. Always brush gently and avoid harsh scrubbing.

If you are not sure about cleaning your particular piece of jewelry try a polishing cloth on the metal…or bring it to a jeweler for cleaning assistance.


For clay jewelry, please keep in mind that it is CLAY. While it is durable, it is not unbreakable. Please handle with care and avoid scenarios that will soak the piece in water. A little bit of water won't hurt, but essentially it is meant to be kept dry! Be mindful of extreme temperatures and fluctuations.

Also, many of my creations are made with delicate crystals. I recommend wearing them freely but smartly.

***Crystal and spiritual healing lore is not a prescription, diagnosis or healthcare information. They are presented as spiritual supports to healing. See a doctor or other healthcare medical practitioner for all health issues.

I hope you find all of this information helpful! If you have any questions at any time about your piece, please feel free to contact me! :)
