I am very pleased to be working with Amanda Self, a wonderful artist who creates beautiful jewelry with crystals and gemstones. These creations are not only lovely, but also healing, and each carries its own powerful affirmation.
I was immediately drawn to her work and since then we’ve had some wonderful conversations, about life, the universe and well… everything. Life takes you down some interesting roads and it’s a blessing to have the chance to have good friends and healing along the way.
I asked Amanda how she got started.
In her own words:
I discovered the powers of crystals in 2002 while working at Half Price Books in Minneapolis, Minnesota. During my register shifts, I noticed a significant amount of energy being exchanged between myself and the customer when we handed each other money. It was incredibly draining and a bit uncomfortable. My dear friend Fran suggested I try using crystals and gemstones for protection and took me to a rock store later in the week. The results were immediate!
