Greeting Cards

A fun way to use and reuse your watercolor scraps is to make your own custom greeting cards. Simply cut out different shapes. Hot glue for a solid hold and quicker dry. I used different size hole punchers, cut out different shapes like hearts or abstract triangles and squares. Super easy and fun! this can take anywhere from 30 minutes to hours depending on how many cards you make! Your friends and family will love them because its the thought that counts right? -Angela

Kyanite is a powerful stone that is known for aligning all of the Chakras. Unlike other stones, Kyanite doesn’t absorb any negative energy, which means that it never needs to be cleansed. Instead, Kyanite rapidly transfers energy through vibrations. Kyanite is also useful for communication skills, as it can create pathways of energy that help send information telepathically. It also restores energy balance.

Blue apatite:Apatite is a stone known for helping those who wear it achieve their goals. It first clears away confusion, apathy or negativity. Then, it stimulates the intellect to expand knowledge and truth, which may be used for personal growth or for the collective good. It is a Stone of Manifestation.

Natalie Beth

Natalie Beth is a local jewelry maker from Los Angeles who a few years ago, began hand-making her own jewelry to gift to her friends. Although she initially only made jewelry as a hobby, Natalie realized that if she opened an online store, it would allow more people to have access to her beautiful jewelry. The jewelry that Natalie sells is completely handmade, and each necklace contains a healing stone that Natalie handpicked from Angel’s Touch Reiki. Check out the video below to get a close up of what’s made for Spring & Summer.
