Soak Up Saturday

Soak It Up

This week was an eventful one! I am in a huge transition in my life, I am not sure about you but I feel most of us are. So many people are going through their daily dose of crazies. This weekend I am in Pittsburgh doing hair and makeup for Natalie Beth’s Wedding. I am so excited to share this day with her. For those of you who missed out this week or the last two weeks, make sure you take a moment and view her jewelry. Each piece is hand made by her and they all have something different and unique. Here’s to Natalie Beth starting her new adventure. Cheers! WITH LOVE, Angela.

Natalie Beth

Natalie Beth’s jewelry is all hand made. Each piece of jewelry is made using healing stones purchased from Jeanne Russell at Angels Touch Reiki. Wear her jewelry in good health!

Green Calcite is a grounding and centering stone that brings stability to those who wear it. The stone increases success, prosperity, business, and fertility of all kinds, and it’s also an excellent stone to help with gardening! Since it is so good at increasing success, it is sometimes also called a Stone of Manifestation.

Green Aventurine is a stone of prosperity. It is a great stone for being a business leader, as it helps strengthen leadership qualities and increases decisiveness. Aventurine also stabilizes the mind by promoting compassion, empathy, perseverance and well-being, while calming anger and irritation. Green Aventurine is also an eye-opening stone, as it increases perception and creativity.

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.
