First, I am very excited to share my new copper designs! I am obsessed with the purity (99.9% copper), quality and color of this copper! Copper is an essential mineral found in plant life and in the human body. Copper is said to be a very healing metal (You need to use Pure copper which is 99.9% that is not coated) to get the health benefits when wearing on your body. My copper is that pure. Copper is said to help with inflammation and arthritis in the body. I find it interesting too that holistically, it is said to be the grounding metal for the human body and spirit. Silver is the metal of the spirit and gold is the metal of the mind. If you would like to learn more about the healing benefits of copper I found this great article here all about it.
Do you see the cute paw print on the copper bar?! I have been happily donating a portion of any online sale and artisan market sales (all throughout the summer and continuing into the fall) to an organization close to my heart and directly connected to the beautiful island I live on in the Pacific Northwest.
It is the, W.A.I.F. Whidbey Animals' Improvement Foundation. Any purchase you may make will be helping an animal or pet owner very much in need. I encourage you to click the link above and see all the wonderful things the W.A.I.F. is doing to help dogs and cats!
I am doing this for a few important reasons. The first is, in honor of my fur baby, Morgan, who passed away over a year ago (it keeps his spirit alive). I cannot tell you what a trying time it has been without our little love. He was 16 when he passed on. We had him since he was a puppy and as you can imagine, 16 years with a special love like that, is beyond beautiful! My husband and I miss our chocolate Labrador, Morgan, every day. However, his long life and all the special things he taught us should be celebrated! In his honor, I donate to the W.A.I.F. and keep creating more hand-stamped jewelry for animal lovers.

The second reason I am donating a portion of my online sales, is as important as the first! I love animals beyond belief. I am one of the biggest animals lovers on the planet. This is one of the reasons I relish the island I live on now. There is an abundance of amazing wildlife, farm life, and sea life to enjoy! Okay, well now I have to show you some!

Elestial Crystals are special type of quartz (they have a bit of citrine in them) and they are tuned into the angel realm. They are healing (like powerful crystal quartz) and are said to protect from negative energy. They are said to be a very grounding and calming gemstone. Below are my popular earrings that I cannot keep in stock and several more elaborate necklaces that have recently sold too.
I will be making more of these gorgeous Elestial Crystal Quartz Necklaces for Fall and Winter Season. The silver satin finish of the leather and bright sparkle of the quartz is perfect for everyday or holiday parties!
The Silver leather I use (I also use gold) is the perfect transition into the interview I was featured in for Roccapina, a European Shoe Company. The silver satin finish is just like the shoes.
They are all about crystals and gorgeous sparkle. You can find my interview here. Look at the beauty and detail in their shoes.
