About Me

MY JOURNEY AND ABOUT ME….

This site sprang up unexpectedly when my little crystal/gemstone/shell/fossil market stall shop in Hermanus had its lease cancelled (long story). While searching for a place to continue trading my crystals and jewellery I decided to go online. AM still learning all this technology so bear with me! So who am I? Well I began my working life as a radiographer in the seventies – very right brained and all that. While living and working in USA between 1982-1989 I saw my first amethyst cluster in Sedona, Arizona, and thought it was beautiful. When I came back to S. Africa in 1989 I decided to give up the world of xrays and began trading gemstone jewellery and crystals on Greenmarket square. I didn’t know a thing about them so I did my own research and eventually in 1997 I gave up everything to follow my heart to Hawaii and join the crystal guru Katrina Raphael on a 3-4 month crystal healing course. After 6 months I came home and embarked on crystal healing for 2 years and then decided I needed to work on myself rather than call myself a “healer”. I continued on Greenmarket square as well as the monthly Holistic fairs in C. Town until I moved with my husband in 1999 to live off the grid for a while in the Cedarburg mountains. I moved to Hermanus in 2002 where I became part of the market square traders selling my crystals and jewellery, and then added shells and fossils. For 13 years I had a successful crystal market business until the covered stalls were put out to tender by the municipality and I was not granted a new lease by the new tender. So here we are!! My journey towards self-awareness has spanned about 30 years and I believe we all create our own reality, so I am holding a vision for a new exciting abundant life as I enter my mature years. I love the mountains, nature, animals (especially dogs), and singing/songwriting. In 2009 I recorded a CD “Surrender Gently” of my own lyrics and music. It is inspirational and drawn from my own journey and healing. It is available on this site. New products will be added as I get more creative and learn to navigate this site more effectively. But for now please enjoy! Much love and Light to you all - keep your thoughts inspired and follow your heart and inner joy.
