At the beginning of this month I created a new piece of jewelry for myself . . . something special to wear as I filmed the fresh content for the Sanctuary Membership Circle.

Carnelian, the April stone of the month is fiery and creative and eager to light up our worlds by reinvigorating deep passions . . . and of course, this new adornment was made of carnelian.

Creating jewelry has always been a love of mine. I fell in love with it as a child when my mom took me to her friends house for macrame classes to create a sweet little necklace with blue cord and vibrant yellow beads carefully strung and intricately tied into a flower.

Ok, maybe not so intricate, but for a six year old who barely knew how to tie her shoes, those were some pretty impressive knots. 😉

Those classes inspired my love for crafting jewelry.

Over the years I’ve danced between being all in, creating jewelry that was sold in boutiques throughout the US to pushing pause and laying down my tools all together.

Within that dance, I feel like I’ve found my sweet spot and clear understanding of the sacred role jewelry and jewelry creation plays in my life . . . it is a sacred ally for landing visions and creating ripples of beauty and love in the world.

Pulling out my beads and tools this spring was not the Spring Refresh I was expecting, but I have to say I was delighted as the creative energy just flowed . . . and continued to flow with joy, inspiration, and ease.

This is part of the magic Carnelian is bringing this month: a sustainable creative flow.

In this week’s episode of the Crystal Shaman Life Podcast, we sink deeper into conversation about carnelian, creative fire, and a doing a spring refresh. Listen HERE:

Wishing you a joy-filled week!
