Nature's Poetry

I created this Celebration Box from all natural materials. It is a joyful piece, and feels alive with energy from amethyst, quartz, and other crystals.

The Healer's Toolbox

Though I have personal interest, training, and experience in healing, I don't believe that tools are necessary.

I have known healers whose offices were so jam-packed full of paraphernalia I was both intimidated and....just like a kid....a bit giggly.

I certainly did not set out to poke fun at anyone, but this box shrine did "ask" me for everything in it! Notice the healer's heart is prominent.

Mano Santa

When I created this box shrine, I was thinking about the many, almost sacred, miracles that hands perform: healing, soothing, guiding, helping, signaling, speaking as in sign language, and so on.

When the piece was finished, I could not think of a name that would say exactly what I had in mind, so I called for help from my Spanish speaking friend, Gabriela Luna, a jewelry artist and musician in Mexico City.

"Mano Santa" is just what I was searching for.
