One year (and two days). That’s how long I’ve been in business with myself. I couldn’t tell you how many wall hangings i’ve made, how many beautiful people are wearing my earrings, or how much money I’ve made (i should probably keep better track of that). What i CAN, and will, tell you is that this year has been impossibly hard and, yet, so incredible.
In the last year I’ve cried countless tears, I’ve ranted, I’ve dealt with anxiety, imposter syndrome, and depression, and I’ve shared all of it with all of you. Running your own business, being an artist (😱), and trying to make a living for yourself is so fucking hard and I’ve wanted to give up so many times. I’ve hated this business just as much as I’ve loved it. But then i stop to think about all of you and, as cheesy as it sounds, YOU’RE the reason i haven’t given up. I’ve made friends all over the country and in other countries as well! I’ve moved from one coast to the other and have taken all of you along with me. My content has gone from half-assed macrame wall hangings to plants and yet y’all are still here (and you keep coming!). It’s been amazing learning and growing and trying to figure out what works for me. If you haven’t noticed, I’m the least professional business page on Instagram, but i wouldn’t have it any other way. .
Thank you for being here, thank you for supporting me, thank you for shopping small, and thank you for sticking around when I’ve wanted to give up at least twice a month for the last year. 🤣 Y’all are the best, and also? I’m the best. I don’t give myself credit ever, but y’all keep telling me that what I’m doing is amazing so, you know what? On this day, I’ll finally say that i believe you. Because it is amazing. Truly amazing. .

A wide range of colors here from old finds in Namibia. Blue, hot pink and green are all seen here, each piece with its own character and special shade. The deep saturation of Otjua Mine tourmaline stands out among all African material. These crystals are mostly unterminated or have naturally contacted or etched tips, some probably damaged by the explosives used to set them free from their stone chambers. This is amazing material cutting and use in jewelry, and for these particular crystals I would love to see them in some creative hands. 1.2-5.9 grams each. They also serve as colorful display pieces from this rare vintage locality. #CyrMinerals#Elbaite#Rubellite#Indicolite#Verdilte#Tourmaline#AfricanTourmaline#Wrappales#Jewelry#Minerals#MineralCollector#Rainbow#Gemstones#Teal#Crystals#CrystalCollection#RareMinerals
