“THIS JEWELRY IS BEYOND BEAUTIFUL, IT IS ALIVE!”
“I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my new earrings! I love the color, the texture, I love the way the color changes when the sun hits them, I love the way they make me feel deeply content and connected to myself. They are my favorites and supplant the beach glass favorites I have been wearing for the last 5 years. I needed these cherry quartz earrings. Thank you for creating such beautiful jewelry. With gratitude,”

“Shaula is an earth spirit artisan and inspired instrument through which these wondrous elemental forms reveal themselves. The stone and crystal visions she shares represent the eternally evolving, transformational, moving processes of earth and otherworldly elements.
Her work is, all at once, medicine, ornament; grounding, connecting.
Like so many of nature’s wonders, no two are alike.”

“I’VE WORN MY STONES PRACTICALLY EVERY DAY FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS. SHAULA HAS A GIFT!”
~ROSALIE DE LA FORET, BUSINESS OWNER
“I have been wanting one of Shaula’s unique necklaces for several years now, and for my birthday this year, my husband gave me a gift certificate. I contacted Shaula and told her the colors I am attracted to and also what energies I wanted to have working with me via the stones themselves. She was able to combine all those requests and create an absolutely beautiful necklace that was custom fit. The minute I put it on I swear I could feel the calming and nourishing effect of the stones! It feels so good to wear….I wish I hadn’t waited so long to purchase one! Well worth every penny. Just gorgeous!”
~Tania Gonzalez Ortega, Waldorf Educator.
“My necklace made by Shaula is incredible! The color and texture of each stone is mesmerizing. It is also extremely comfortable despite the size of the stones. I can wear it all day, even while I sleep. I get so many compliments whenever I have it on”

~Owen Bard, Grade School Student
“I think Shaula is a naturally endowed artist. I was in need of some specific medicine for the transitions I was experiencing in my life, and I wanted some intentional assistance for the soul work I was doing. Shaula and her jewelry came highly recommended by many women and friends of mine, who at one time had sought her out for a similar purpose. I contacted Shaula and gave her the details of my situation and what I was specifically wanting and needing. Her extensive knowledge of stones and their healing powers, coupled with her strong intuition of what you need and what will look brilliantly beautiful are rare and impressive talents as an artist. She created a unique necklace for me that I absolutely love to wear for many reasons. I truly admire her wisdom, talent, and energy.”
~Hana Baker, Teacher

~EMILY POST, POTTERY ARTIST

“I received my first necklace made by Shaula for my 30th birthday. I immediately felt a strong connection to the stones we selected. Three years later I still wear that necklace almost everyday and continue to get raving comments on it wherever I go. I often hold the stones and marvel at how beautiful and smooth they are. It amazes me to think about Shaula crafting these stones by hand. She’s an incredible artist, and I love wearing my stones.”
