Manifesting and Meditation

The newest addition to our luxury soy candle line, this candle was blended specifically for relaxation and meditation. Inspired by my manifest jewelry collection, sacred journey destinations, communing with nature and the ongoing path to self discovery.

A sensual, yet light, subtle and delightful blend of essential oils including sandalwood, frankincense, ylang ylang and a dash of rose. Topped off with the manifest raised wax seal. A wonderful gift for anyone who enjoys a bit of peace and solace! 

Each candle comes in an organza gift pouch and wrapped in faceted gold filled wire with your choice of gemstone, including a card indicating the properties of the stone. The stone and card may be used for setting an intention while lighting the candle.

Since ancient times, fire has been used in meditation and healing.  Candle meditation is a very easy and natural way to relax and induce a meditative state, simply by focusing and gazing on the top of the flame.

  • Citrine for Abundance
  • Rose Quartz for Love and Compassion

Sandalwood has long been revered since ancient times to allow a state of awareness and intuition.  It also helps to induce deep relaxation, assisting in meditation. A helpful aid in opening up cellular memory and unconditional love.

Moving the Studio and Embracing Change

After more than two decades living in beautiful sunny Southern California along the ocean, the studio (and me) moved to beautiful Sonoma county, in Northern California.

My former Southern California Life at the beach!

My former Southern California Life at the beach!

 

It's funny how life can change in a blink and seem so "accidental"!  I was asked to house sit and sublet for a friend who was off to Canada for what was supposed to be a 3-4 month project . This was an amazing property on 4 acres, and a yurt to boot!  This amazing yurt was built from redwood, and the property was filled with a plethora of wildlife, including three chickens, a family of wild turkeys, deer, birds and more!  Every morning was a wild nature adventure!

The Yurt!

Suddenly plans changes after only being there a month, I was told she had to return to California...the project was cancelled!!  Oh no, what to do!!  I really loved the area and wasn't quite ready to leave!  As luck/karma/destiny would have it, I found this sweet little cottage in the woods! This charming home was built in the 1960s, and it so utterly cozy and perfect!

There is an enclosed sunroom which is now the new home for my studio!  I can create while looking into the forest! It's so peaceful here, and in the mornings I am greeted by a rooster's cock-a-doodle-doo and the daily visit from my neighbor's beautiful Russian Blue cat.

My daily visitor, his name is Mojo!

Who ever thought a former city girl, who became an ocean girl would wind up in the forest and in the country?  Never in a million years, and here I am and loving it ! Life is sweet!

Manifesting Miracles with The Power of Intention

kara12.jpg

Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. You are here to realize your inner divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment.

Morihei Ueshiba


It's a brand New Year, and time to Manifest your heart's desire!  We suggest setting an intention before wearing your new Manifest pendant.

 

Take a comfortable position in a quiet environment where you will not be disturbed.  Keep your spine straight.  Take three long slow breaths, by breathing in for a count of 4, holding for a count of 4, and then releasing the breath slowly through your mouth for 8 seconds.

 

Once you are feeling relaxed and centered, visualize (use your wonderful imagination) what you would like to manifest.  Be very clear as to what your intention is, and add as much visual and emotional excitement to it, as if it has already happened.

 

You are now ready to wear your pendant!  Enjoy!

 

Our entire Manifest collection can be found here.

The Scent of a Gemstone/Aromatherapy and Handmade Soy Candles

 

Historically, candles were used to illuminate homes, but today they are used to create a special pleasant mood, relaxation and to simply enjoy their soft light and scent. Candles can be made from several materials including – paraffin, grease, oil and beeswax. Many candles are produced with paraffin which contain toxins. These toxins are released in the air when the candle is lit . Many manufacturers  cover these effects by simply adding perfume to their candles, but the effects are still the same. Recently with the addition of soy, the pollutants have been deterred.

Soy candles are produced with the process of hydrogenation. One of the main difference with the paraffin candles is that soy candles produce less smoke and burn longer. They are considered to be eco friendly and it's no wonder why they have become the preferred choice.

When it comes to aromatherapy, using soy candles is a way to enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy, and maintain an eco friendly environment.

In creating our new luxury soy candle collection, we attempted to link the properties of semi precious gemstones with aromatherapy, to introduce a new and unique candle.

Some of the essential oils we use in our candles are:

- Ylang ylang – this essential oil acts like antidepressant and is used to achieve a state of calmness. It is also a natural  aphrodisiac and it is recommended for care of oily and sensitive skin.  Ylang ylang opens up the heart chakra.  We use yang ylang in our white opal and tourmaline scents.

- Sandalwood – this essential oil has been used for centuries by healers in India and China.  It produces a peaceful state of mind and enhances spirituality and meditation.  While consider an oil linked to water and ruler by the Moon, its Earthy scent is very grounding. We use sandalwood in our Smoky Quartz scent.

- Pomegranate – the benefits of using this fruit are known for centuries. It provides powerful anti inflammatory and anti wrinkle effects. The delightful aroma is known for enticing romance.   We use pomegranate in our tourmaline scent.



Join us on Facebook, we are giving away a Tourmaline candle tin.  Easy entry, contest ends November 12!

Artisan Delights at The Beach

Manhattan Beach, California is known as 'the jewel" of the South Bay of Los Angeles. Just a few miles south of LAX airport, it is a beautiful coastal community, tucked away from the L.A. hustle and bustle.

I've always loved the Manhattan Beach Home Town Fair.  It's been a tradition here for over forty years.  I have always attended this fun filled weekend.  This year, I am presenting my handcrafted jewelry and hand made luxury soy candles, partnering with Rotem LE Fashion Apparel.  This unique line of comfy and cozy wearables, features hand screened photography, capturing the "ghost" of the image, and includes roses, agapanthus, pomegranates, and my all-time favorite, Hamsa. 

All the information about attending the fair, what to do and fair hours can be found here.

Hope to see you there!

Handcrafted Jewelry with Herkimer Diamonds

The Herkimer "diamond" is a doubly terminated clear quartz crystal.  They have points on either ends, unlike normal rock crystal quartz.  They also have a hexagon shape.  They are found in Dolomite limestone in Middleville, New York.  These beautiful and unique crystals are named so because they look like real diamonds to the untrained eye.  I am always pleased when I am able to source some high quality Herkimers, and incorporate them into my handcrafted jewelry.

Herkimer is the county of New York where they are found.  Those found in Arizona, China, Norway, Tibet and the Ukraine mimic these magnificent crystals.  Although they look alike, they cannot truly be called Herkimer Diamonds. 

They make exceptional one of a kind jewelry pieces, as they are highly valued and quite exquisite. 

The native Mohawk Indians found these crystals and were immediately mesmerized by them.  They have become known as "The People of the Crystals".  Of all the metaphysical quartz crystals, the Herkimer is thought to be the most powerful healing crystal.  They will open the seven chakras, and are thought to increase empathy and psychic abilities. 

If the Herkimer is smoky, it's believed to be linked to the Earth.  Because of their double temination ends, these rare crystals are thought to receive amplification.  Perhaps the healing powers are due to the rare impurities often found within the crystals.  These impurities range from other clusters, scepters, phantoms, and fluid inclusions. The fluid inclusions could be water, oil or other small crystals.  Water has always been known for its healing powers. 

Herkimers are also useful in the magical realms.  They are used to protect, channel and increase one's power.  In meditation they are used to help deepen the meditative state, and can transport you to another astral realm.   

Enjoy these new Herkimer diamond jewelry creations, part of my new line for the Fall 2013 season, Atlantis

Handcrafted Jewelry with The Magic of Quartz Crystals

Quartz crystals have been in existence for 100,000 years, the most ancient legends involve the lost City of Atlantis.  Legend has it that these ancient inhabitants were so advanced they could effectively harness the telepathic powers of crystals to communicate with their ancestors.  the Ancient Greeks and Romans used quartz crystals as talismans for protection and health.  Quartz crystals were also used for many ceremonial purposes, because of their alleged connection to the higher source.  Crystals are used for many products such as watches and lasers.

 

Quartz crystals have six metaphysical properties.  They have the ability to store, structure, transit, transform, focus and amplify energy.  This energy can be matter, thought, emotion or information.  They can help balance and clarify an individuals' environment.  It is said that quartz counters negative energy. 

Quartz is one of the most popular used gemstones in jewelry.  Using these beautiful specimens in handcrafted jewelry, they can emphasize the same metaphysical properties.  These quartz crystals I am featuring were sourced and found in Peru, one of the most magical and spiritual places on the planet.  Each one is unique, and all are one of a kind creations,  some with a strong masculine appeal.

See the new collection for men here.
