About the Artist

drew69.design

I have had the pleasure of designing Jewelry, Amulets, Talisman, and Charms for 20+ years. It all started because of my love for crystals. Wanting to find a way to create original custom jewelry (shop). I searched New Age and rock shops for the means of doing it.

 

Eureka

Finding a couple of small pamphlets on wire wrapping, I knew this was it. This would give me the flexibility to create different ways of mounting stones and crystals. There wasn’t much written about it back then but, it was a start. I practice for months creating new a different styles of wire wrapping beyond what was in the pamphlets.

My Interest

Chakra PictogramsMy interest lead me to research the metaphysical aspects of the crystals, and stones and their association with the 7 chakras in the body. Chakra is a Sanskrit term and it means “wheel” or “disk” and is derived from the root word “cakra”. Chakras are spinning wheels of energy/light. Chakras have the loving responsibility of taking in, incorporating and emanating energy to keep us functioning at optimal levels.

As the years went by

New Age ExpoI attended many new age, craft, and earth day shows. The best part was meeting all kinds of folks who had the same love of our mother that I did. I also had a chance to spread the word about our relationships with all things Gaia.

That brings me to the now, original custom jewelry

Raw Quartz CrystalDesigned and fabricated original custom jewelry, amulets, talismans, and charms. Raw crystal and semiprecious stones from around the world are cut, shaped, and polished creating original forms. Next, in some cases, create glass beads (lampwork) to accompany them. Finally mounting them and using electroplating techniques to secure the stones and crystals so they can be worn creating original organic pendants, rings, and pins. Wearable art naturally designed!
