Spring is Here!
I don’t know about all of you, but all I can say is that 2018 roared in, ruthlessly tearing away anything and everything that was no longer needed in my life. Needless to say, its been a year to draw on strengths, and deep inner connection. This Spring, It has become crystal clear to me what needs to be done in order to move forward…. Surrender and Bloom.
Just as the trees and flowers are doing at the moment, so must I!
I have been spending lots of time in the Woodland studio lately playing with some juicy watermelon tourmalines and other new stones that have come to me. As usual, I have no choice but to listen to them and heed their wisdom and vision.

With New stones, come new pieces and with new pieces there comes shows, pop ups and lots of events in order to share these beauties with you all!!
There are lots or really exciting events coming up that I am happy to share with you!
There will be lot’s of NEW pieces with gorgeous and healing rare gemstones.

We are super excited to share that We are coming back to the Glen this weekend!
Please see details below:

Here are some of the goodies that you will find at our events!!

I would like to take a minute or so to write a little about the Oak Tree and Oak Tree medicine. Since moving up here to Meaford, I have begun a deep and meaningful journey connecting with the trees around me and listing to the wisdom that they have to share. This year, Oak has been screaming loud and clear at me, and this is why you will now find so much oak medicine in these pieces. The Oak Tree has been revered for hundreds of years as one of the most sacred trees. I was not surprised to read that oak trees offer strength, courage and grounding when faced with growth and change. Its such a good reminder that all we really need to do is listen and all that we need will come to us at the right time.

We are so looking forward to seeing you all and connecting again soon!
And Please Remember, Surrender and Bloom!!!

For those beauties that are too far away to come for a wee visit, our etsy shop is still going strong and is changes and is looking better than ever!

How the World seems to have changed since the last time I wrote on these pages….

Sometimes one must retreat, cocoon and rest.

Spring is here and this butterfly has morphed.

I feel like so many layers have been shed this winter… I have some stories, some wild and crazy stories, some that I will one day share, just not today.

Today I want to talk about a simple yet profound concept

that seems to be at risk these days.

Being Human.

Yes, we are simply human.

We need air, water, food and shelter to live, but we need love, community, support and healing in order to thrive.

We need each other. More than ever these days.

Social media seems to excite yet isolate us more and more…. external 3 dimensional pressures, working, paying bills, listening or not listening to the news…..

this all weighs in.

I feel it folks. Do you?

What can we do, what can we empower ourselves with?

We can connect with each other, support each other, we can cry, be vulnerable, be seen and most importantly we can love.

We can embrace our imperfections,

touch those hard to reach and painful places within our souls

screaming out to be heard.

We can hold space for one another.

Not just humans, but winged beings, finned beings, water beings, tree beings, plant beings and fured beings. We are just another one of the earth’s majestic creatures and we can let our light shine bright. Make it count.

For me, this means being present. Fully present in my surroundings and especially with my family. This means floating in and out of this cyber space we have grown so comfortable with. This means, walking in the woods, understanding that we are all connected. Understanding that what we do and say to others, we do and say to ourselves.

I am really just beginning to fully understand it’s impact.

I am humbled. I give thanks each and every day.


Let yourself be seen. Try it.

Let yourself be heard. Be brave. Say what you feel and don’t shy away.

It’s time.

There is no more space left in this world for anything else.

Soon, I will be launching a whole new line of work. A deep and meaningful collection of pieces that speak loudly to what my soul has to share. I want you to know that we need each other, we need this earth and we need to embrace this NOW.


Our kids need this.

Let us rejoice everyday, even if it’s for one single piece of beauty we have seen, heard, smelt, felt, touched or tasted.


We must shift our view and see the gifts in the everyday. Trust me, I know this can be a struggle, God knows, but Love, Gratitude and Humility can be truly Transforming.

Until next time, be well and Be Human.

no apologies.

in Love

Happy Full Moon!

Tonight is a glorious night…. Out in the moonlight packing the trailer and preparing for the Mariposa Folk Festival.

First official show of the summer.

Life on the Bay is surreal.

Everything feels different this year. We are in transition, in the heart of a grand evolution.

From the Glen to Meaford, the town to forest, The Mill to the Woodland Studio.

I feel backwards and sideways most days….. I can’t believe that my feet actually move forward and I somehow still get dinner on the table and remember appointments… Evolution again. I am forever in awe of things that we can accomplish in one whole day.

Change is truly not an easy thing. Especially when you are so busy, that you barely have the time to notice it… until those wee hours in the night, when dust settles, I take a deep breath in, Sigh and reflect.

I am happy to share that the Woodland Studio is well under way…. Still lots to finish, but it is really for creation.

I am sooooo ready to get making. Its in my heart and soul, my release, my flow and my passion.

My children are of course all these things and more, but creating for me is my own little magic time.

Time actually disappears when I am in the studio. Stones speak, metal forms and stories are told.

Here are a few stories, some wee nibbles of delight.

There are many more to come. Next week will be my first official week in the Woodland studio.

Hope to see some of you this weekend in Orillia

I know things seem a little mystifying these days as to my whereabouts….

I am here. In the heart of a deep evolution and I am ready to sprout.
