I am Denise Tallman and I work side by side with my husband Stephen. Our shop is a creative venture of both Whimsical and Mystical jewelry with beads and crystals from around the world.
I began making whimsical colorful beaded jewelry over 30 years ago after a trip to Jerome AZ where I discovered eclectic jewelry that I wanted to learn to create for myself. Ten years later I was thrilled to be chosen to work at the famous Bead Museum in Glendale, AZ where I learned the history of beads and how they are made. Because of this education, our Whimsical Mystical jewelry often has a description of the beads used including where they are from and how they are made.
Eventually my spiritual side meshed with the healing properties of stones and "Jewelry to Heal Your Soul" was created. I source only the most spectacular crystal high energy stones for your healing jewelry.
We pride ourselves in hand selecting each crystal and crystal bead we sell. We never buy in bulk. That is because we want to feel the energy ourselves and only source the very best stones we can find. When you buy a crystal from our Etsy store it is one of a kind and chosen for it's unique qualities. They are all sage smudged before shipping and wrapped with love in Sari ribbons.
Recently I began taking my love of photography and creating note cards. My first being Hydrangeas from my garden, a tribute to my Nono and Nona.
In 2011, in honor of our beloved pugs Mushu, Truffle and Frankie, we felt a strong need to make whimsical pieces in order to support Pug Rescues throughout the country. Our Rescue venture has provided well over $6,000 for animal rescues in the last 8 years. With your help we can continue to fulfill our goal to "pay it forward."
As you can see, our store is an eclectic mix...just like that first piece of jewelry I discovered in Jerome, AZ.
We hope you will find the perfect piece of jewelry or metaphysical crystal for yourself amongst both our whimsical and mystical selections.
