The last few weeks have been quite involved looking at how to use crystal girds to enhance your practice.

I’ve been chatting to a few people about some guest blogging and decided why not share more about me for a change? So here’s your chance to find out more about the face behind the crystals.

Tell us a little bit about yourself

I’m Sharon, I’m 54, live in Swindon with my partner. We have no children and I’m working on getting a furbaby but we can’t seem to agree.

I’m a trained primary school teacher and librarian.

What are three random things that people don’t know about you?

I have never had a sense of smell. There’s times when I wonder what I’m missing and apparently I can be a bit heavy handed with the garlic when I’m cooking but it’s never really bothered me.

I was married for 10 years, and my wedding took place in Mauritius which is a beautiful place but real contrasts between the haves and have nots.

I’m slightly obsessed with alpacas and my big dream is to live somewhere with the space to have my own small herd.

Why did you start your business?

I’m passionate about crystals and the impact they can have on well-being and wanted to be able to share that love and knowledge with others.

I’m also a total craft addict, if you can name it, I’ve probably tried it! I suffer with bouts of poor mental health and find that craft, especially repetitious things like knitting, bring me a sense of peace and well-being.

I used to be a put my crystals in my bra girl but after losing a few decided to use my crafty side and make crystal jewellery. As I was making some pieces, I had a bit of an ‘a-ha’ moment. Crystals are beautiful in their own right and shouldn’t we be proud of tapping into our spiritual side?

Tell us a bit about what you do and how it supports self care

My main passion is sharing the knowledge that I have built up from personally using crystals for over 10 years.

I make a range of jewellery so you can show off your crystals, but my signature items are my crystal bundles. I curate bundles of crystals that can support with lots of aspects of self-care. It could be to support challenges such as anxiety or migraine or to enhance other self-care practices such as journaling or yoga.

I give you the crystals as tools to support your well-being along with the guidance as to how get the best out of them.

What do you most enjoy about your business?

Whilst I love the creative side of making jewellery, the thing I enjoy most is seeing that I’ve made a difference to someone’s well-being. It could be a parent getting a whole night’s sleep as their child’s nightmares have been helped or someone that has managed that extra bit of focus in their yoga practice.

What do you do when you aren’t working on your business?

I have a part time job working as a stock controller, 4 mornings a week. I knit and crochet a lot, am a bit obsessed with YouTube reruns of Say Yes to the Dress, the ones with Gok are the best. Oh, and planning my latest alpaca visit.

What is your favourite crystal and why?

That’s hard! If I was pushed to one, I’d have to say carnelian. As a Leo I’m naturally drawn to it’s fiery nature but I just love the energy that it brings.

I hope you’ve enjoyed finding out a bit more about me and don’t forget I run a free Facebook community.
