Wear the POWER of Nature!

Mystical, Magical, Mysterious….

A Vortex Gypsy dances on the cutting edge of light, showering jewels and golden sparkles wherever she goes. That’s me, the crystal vision dancer. I balance and blend the energy of hundreds of different kinds of stones to amplify the aesthetics: the vision and feeling intrinsic to the design and materials that turn decoration into wearable music and song.

I create bold, dramatic and energetic jewelry with meticulous craftsmanship. Buyers need a bit of boldness and flair to wear these pieces and enjoy the visual and sensual impact. I’m thrilled that so many buyers use my pieces to enhance their meditation practices with complex vibrations from deep within the earth.

I’ve sketched 100’s of designs, but usually I start by arranging the stones in "organized chaos" and letting the colors and shapes suggest which ones want to play together. The design morphs from there. Rarely does a finished piece look like the original sketch! Every piece is one of a kind. No two are the same, even when mixing similar stones and patterns.

Collecting treasures from around the globe to integrate into my designs is one of my passions. I feel like the whole world finds a voice in these stones and crystals. Stone cutters, crystal hunters, gold and silversmiths for mountings…I’ve discovered so many talented people in my travels, I wish I could support them all! That’s where you come in, the more you buy, the more I can support these artisans! And the more they can create! Then, even more of these wonderful pieces can be a part of your life. Together we can create an artistic circle of life!

Etsy is my magic carpet. It gives me a worldwide platform without having to “be everywhere at once.” Etsy allows my stones to find their next “co-creator” anywhere! Physically, I live in a desert oasis near the mountains of Lake Tahoe, CA, USA. The expansive beauty of the mountain tops inspire me, as the Power of Nature informs my designs! I create in a crystal “play space.” If creativity needs a boost, I have countless mountains and deserts where I can appreciate the magic of nature, while dancing on the edge of light............

MAINTENANCE & CARE

Sterling Silver:

Sterling silver will tarnish. It’s recommended to add a small piece of anti-tarnish paper where the jewelry is stored. The anti-tarnish paper is usually good for 6 months—then replace.


Vermeil:

Vermeil is gold-plated sterling silver. It’s recommended to add a small piece of anti-tarnish paper where the jewelry is stored. The anti-tarnish paper is usually good for 6 months—then replace.

General Jewelry Care:

Typically, polishing and buffing with a soft cloth is sufficient maintenance.

To untangle, hold your piece on one end and let it unwind.
