Properties & Vibrations of the Gemstones

Jewels of the Nomad

Many people, including myself, use crystals in a daily self-care routine or to complement alternative medicine. More than we realize, the vibrations in each color and crystalline structure of the stones affect and stimulate each of your internal subtle bodies better known as chakras.

Chakra jewelry is believed to be beneficial for physical, mental, and spiritual well-being as they not only help balance the imbalanced chakras but they also help to open blocked energy pathways. In my work, I use energetically charged crystal stones to help enhance vibrations in different areas. Whether you are gifting my jewelry for a family or friend or buying for yourself, please choose each piece intuitively by what you are attracted to and also what qualities that you are needing to bring into your life. My new body of work, Rainbow Chakra Jewelry is intended to raise your vibration and give you a little boost in the area that most needs attention.
