What Makes Pieces of Jayde Jewelry Different?
Attention to detail Every piece I create is made by me, with my own two hands. Each piece is unique, and lovingly crafted in my home studio with the best materials I can source. The providence of the crystals and other materials I use is very important to me. Any bones, insects or animal parts used in my work is cruelty-free and ethically sourced.
Source of materials An artisan’s source of materials are held in as much regard and privacy as their methods of creation. I have spent years sourcing my crystals. The origin, quality, method of acquisition, handling, and whether they were ethically obtained are of the utmost importance to me. If I don’t like the seller, I don’t buy the stone.
Time It takes time to create. It can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days to make a piece, depending upon the complexity of the design and what kinds of intention and energy may need to be infused into the piece. I often get commissioned to create pieces for specific emotional and physical purpose, and I make certain the pieces get everything they need so I know the wearer will feel it.
Intention Art is life. An artist puts their own energy and intent into what comes from their hands and heart. Therefore, I make sure my workbench is filled with positivity and joy. I do this by regularly cleansing my workspace with white sage, placing materials and tools in both sunlight and moonlight, surrounding myself with the creative work of others I admire, and allowing my Feline Inspection Team to periodically peruse my work (trust me, kitty juju is good stuff). Additionally, I only work when my emotions are positive and my mind is clear. I believe this is a big reason why my Pieces of Jayde have such a profoundly positive effect on those who acquire them.
