All journeys begin with an idea, a vision of how you want to effect this world. My journey started with a dream to inspire creativity, to create connections, and share the magic of pinecones.Watch Video
PINECONES & CRYSTALS
Many years ago, I began discovering the mystical effects of crystals. I was drawn to their wonderful beauty and energies. I learned of the powerful connection between the pineal gland and pinecones mentioned throughout history. This inspired me to start creating wearable art from these materials.
Finding the Pinecone
CLIMBING AND COLLECTING
The First Part of the journey is to find the Pinecones! They are found at the very top of a special variety of pine-tree, deep within the generous forest of BC, Canada. These trees produce a very unique pinecone that can only be accessed from epic heights. I climb by hand, to 60-80 feet in order to hand pick each pinecone. This allows me to select the shape specific to Spirit Seeds and ensures the pinecone is still Alive and Active.Watch Video
My passion for adventure and sustainable choices led me to the mecca of healing stones – Thailand. I am able to hunt through the country creating connection and contacts to find the best sources of crystals. The unique look of Spirit Seeds requires a certain shape and style of gemstone. Every piece is selected by hand and eye to fit the Spirt Seed vibe. My motor bike and connections with the wonderful locals helped me fulfill this journey.Watch Video
All Spirit Seed pendants are hand crafted using techniques that I have been refined over many years. 6 hours, 5 days and lots of love and intention are put into the creations. Carefully pairing stone to cone, creating beautiful symmetry, I delicately carve a space to inlay the gem in the heart of the pinecone. The soul of the crystal merges with the heart of the cone creating an unexplainable bond, that can be felt when wearing. The crystal is then framed with gold-plated wire and coated with 5 layers of secret resin. After being cleansed and cleared of unwanted energies, the Spirit Seed is ready for its new adventure buddy.Watch Video
