"I create copper rings and pendants from my home studio, utilizing raw gemstones and minerals. To make my wearable, modern specimens, I use electroforming, which is the process of controlling a metal deposit onto a conductive surface. This process allows me to explore opportunities that may not be feasible with traditional metal-working techniques."
CRYSTAL GRIDS: Crystal grids are used to direct more energy towards a certain goal. This is because you are using many crystals, instead of just one. Made by placing your stones/crystals in a geometric pattern for directing energy, your stones/crystals are charged by your energy and intention.
