About UsA Word About Dzi Beads (9/24/18)
First, let me state emphatically that I am not an expert in this field. I came across dzi beads while searching for something else entirely and fell in love—or, more accurately, “in like”—and began collecting them. Dzi beads are revered, especially by Tibetans, and are imbued by them with magical properties related to healing and protection.
No one is auite sure how or when dzi beads were first developed; as a result many myths have sprung up about them. One myth claims that, hundreds of years ago, when Tibet was in chaos and suffering catastrophic illness, Buddha threw down from heaven thousands of dzi beads to heal the country. Another myth is that dzi beads were made from meteorites that fell from outer space thousands of years ago. The magnetic field of dzi beads is three times stronger than that of other crystals.
Dzi beads have become widely collectible, to the extent that a single bead may command a price of $10,000 or more. While you will not find any of those museum quality beads in my designs, I hope you will like the ones I have used. A pure dzi bead is said to have been created of agate and may have decorative symbols comprised of circles, squares, zig zags, stripes and other patterns. Many dzi beads are also created with two or more “eyes” that are said to ward off the “evil eye.”
Because ancient dzi beads have become so popular, an entire industry has sprung up to create reproductions. The new beads are sometimes of agate but also include those made of glass, crystal, resin, and other stones. I have incorporated both ancient and modern dzi beads in my designs.

"How I Go to the Woods
Ordinarily, I go to the woods alone, with not a single friend, for they are all smilers and talkers and therefore unsuitable.
I don't really want to be witnessed talking to the catbirds or hugging the old black oak tree. I have my way of praying, as you no doubt have yours.
Besides, when I am alone I can become invisible. I can sit on the top of a dune as motionless as an uprise of weeds, until the foxes run by unconcerned. I can hear the almost unhearable sound of the roses singing.
If you ever go to the woods with me, I must love you very much.
----Mary Oliver Swan: Poems and Prose Poems
July 21, 2013 Update:
My life is changing in subtle ways, some of which affect you, directly or indirectly. For several years now I have been channeling messages to accompany every single piece of my jewelry that has been sold. It has been a wonderful experience and one that some of you have commented on most favorably. Those messages have gone out all over the world, and for that I am most grateful.
A couple of days ago, I sat down to meditate over a newly sold necklace. As usual, I invoked the blessing of it, then asked to receive the channeled message. Nothing happened, so I asked again, then again and again. When I still did not receive anything, I had to process what this really meant, and here is what I ultimately came to:
We--all of us--have arrived at a point in our lives when we are being forced to stop depending on people or factors outside of us to tell us what we need to know or do. The answers lie within us, and it is up to each of us to take responsibility for our own lives, because we are far more powerful than most of us have realized, and the time for recognition is NOW.
I shall miss sending you these messages, and some of you will miss receiving them, but I am thrilled at what this all portends: you have arrived! We have arrived! We are all one. Blessings to you on your continuing journey.
With much love, Connie
The ability to design and create jewelry appeared as a precious gift not many years ago and has been my joy ever since. Most of my pieces are one-of-a-kind and many are divinely inspired.
In addition to the items I create on my own, I offer the unique opportunity to have your piece created in conjunction with your angelic guides. This is how it works: you tell me what you would like to have (a necklace, for example). I then meditate and contact your guides, who tell me what to use. (For the record, they are nothing if not succinct: How about "berries and cream" for a clue? Or "patchwork quilt"?) Fortunately, for you and for me, it always works out.
The guides also give me a letter, addressed to you, which I enclose with your piece along with the other channeled message. It is a special gift, indeed--for yourself or someone else. You may indeed order a channeled piece for another person. Many customers have done so. Call or email me if you need more information.
Here is what some of my customers have said:
"I have been remiss in letting you know that I have received the necklaces, although you probably heard me gasping with delight when I opened the boxes. These are two of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry I have ever owned. There is not one piece of clothing I own that does not look new again with one of these necklaces. Your obvious talent is only matched by your lovely heart."
"Connie, dear, received the OM necklace today, been wearing it ever since it arrived. May never take it off. It is sooo beautiful. I sometimes think you can't surpass the lovely things you create & boom, you do." Mary
"I received my necklace today and it is absolutely beautiful. I feel all of the positive energy with which it was blessed." Julie
"The necklace arrived yesterday and is my new favorite." Pamela
"The bracelet and earrings are safely in my possession. I'd had my eye on both of these for a long time, and they exceed my expectations." Gina
"Thanks so much for the jewelry--I haven't taken off the earrings--the channeling was so accurate and inspiring!!!" Kristina
"Connie, I am truly speechless! What beautiful jewelry! You certainly do have a gift." Sharon
"Thank you for channeling a necklace for me. I can feel the wonderful powerful vibration...and what a gorgeous necklace it is." Zelpha
"I just have to say I adore this sweet, precious necklace...Such good loving energy from you in this piece." Kim
"Constance, the piece that you channeled for me could not have been more perfect. It brought with it the feeling of energy and the feeling of peace. It has a magical charge to it. May you continue to craft such marvelous pieces for others to enjoy." Ejay
