Chapter 4: Niche

Welcome back to another installment of my wonderful rambles 💁🏻‍♀️! As I promised last week I am going to be talking about our ever so favorite Crystals 💎! Who doesnʼt love those shiny, sparkly, majestic creatures 🦄?


Yes, I talk about my crystals like they are my best friends 👯‍♀️, because they totally are. One day an amethyst said “Hey! Be my friend” to my 7 year old self, and Iʼve never looked back. All the best rock collectors started out when they were young, (not all, but most.) there is something so magical when youʼre a child and you see all the different colored rocks, heck even when I was little I was amazed by the grey and brown rocks I had in my front yard.


Those are important memories for me, I loved each and every single rock 💕I came in contact with, It was my wonderful way to connect with nature🌱🌻. I lost that as I got older, but when I turned 22 everything changed 🙌🏻 . I found my niche. I love crystals 💎 + I love making jewelry 💍 = reconnection with myself and nature. It is so important to find your niche and go for it!

Once you figure out what you love and what youʼre good at, everything will come easier to you. For example even though I loved making jewelry I really needed to narrow 📿 it down to a specific type of jewelry, which is now Healing Crystal Jewelry, my niche is crystals.


So have you found your niche in your business or even just in life? What are you GREAT at and LOVE doing? Let me know in the comments below 👇🏻👇🏻.


Now I am sure that the next question I am going to address has been burning a hole in your poor brain 🧠; How did I start wire wrapping?


Well as I said in Chapter 2 📖, I was very inspired by the community on Instagram, and all the crystals had my creativity on high. So one day I was sitting in my craft room bored 🤦🏻‍♀️ because my ever so loving Fiancé was busy playing some video game 🎮 and I went off to try to busy myself. Well sitting at my table was a bag of amethyst points, some wire and my pliers.


Now I donʼt know how I did it 🤷🏻‍♀️, or what inspired me in that very moment but it was magical 🔮, because I actually got the stone to stay in the wire!

Whaaaaatttt 😱😱😱?? Yep that was my facial expression. That was the hardest part of wire wrapping for me was getting the stone to stay in the darn “cage” I wrapped.


Sometimes when you least expect it you figure out what you can do... sometimes it takes years before you can finally see 👀 what is inside of you ✨, and what has been there forever. I think back all the time and how those teenage years I felt so lost and alone 👻 , and how I could have filled it up with crystals and crafts instead.


So donʼt close yourself off, try new things 🎖, research 📕, go to a craft store✂️🖍 or a museum 🔭, whatever calls to you. Because If you donʼt listen to your heart ❤️, you could miss out on an opportunity to REALLY know yourself 🙏🏻.

So keep your eyes peeled for my next installment, this one is a secret 🤫😂
