I am a silversmith & designer. My silversmithed pieces are hand-built using original designs & 925 Canadian sterling silver or copper or karat gold. Always cadmium-free and nickel-free. Precious & semi-precious stones have been used for thousands of years for their esoteric, metaphysical & healing properties. I have used them for this purpose for over 20 years. Much of the information is from my own database, but the majority of info on the healing properties of the specific stones is from Judy Hall's wonderful & accurate Crystal Bible series. Thanks Judy :) My customers & clients often ask me to intutitively 'tune in' to what stone would be right for them. If you would like this for yourself, I'd be happy to - just contact me.
