We recently got a treasure trove of incredible crystals in the shop which have been selling like crazy! My love for crystals intensifies every year it seems! I love creating vignetts of mystical, magical crystal corners in my home. I also incorporate crystals and precious stones into my own handmade headpiece work. I love the intimate ritual of charging crystals in a rainstorm to cleanse and intensify their powers. My best friend carries a few of her favourite crystals with her which act as her talismans for guidance, balance, alignment, and are often incorporated into her Tarot card readings. I am fascinated with crystals, but still very much a crystal novice! How do you incorporate crystals into your life? Whatever your experience is with crystals, they are so fun and inspiring and easy to use, so I thought it would be helpful to consolidate some helpful crystal info into one place!
