Cryztalvision--beautiful * creezzztals* ;>))
Cryztalvision has so many beautiful pieces, it was difficult to choose- but these are my favorites!
Cryztalvision's name is Beth Alexander.
She states that she has been fascinated by crystals and stones for as long as she can remember.
She also had some wonderful teachers during her childhood who passed on their passion for nature, geology, crystals and gemstones. Beth comes from a long line of artistic souls on her father's side of the family.Her great grandmother was a very talented artist who started painting late in life. She left behind some amazing oil paintings that Beth will always treasure. She also painted and fired china, she had a fantastic eye for detail and could paint tiny pictures small enough to fit on a thimble. Beth's father was an accomplished, well rounded artist and crafts person and spent many years teaching art in the public school system.
Beth/Crystalvision has been creating unique pieces of jewelry for almost 20 years now, and she is still excited by the process. She says that she has an insatiable appetite for learning new techniques that push the boundaries of her creativity. Along the way she has also been drawn to studying and practicing various energy healing arts, like Reiki, chakra balancing, Earth based energy medicine, shamanic practices, and Angel Therapy. She has found combining her love of minerals, her artistic eye and skill in jewelry fabrication and design, along with her heightened sensitivity to energies creates a powerful synergy. She loves to immerse herself in the creative process and I'm fascinated when some pieces seem to magically design themselves. Beth is pleased to share my passion with you on etsy!
It is Beth's hope that you will find a very special piece that speaks to your heart.
What's with the "Z" in Cryztalvisions? You may ask. It's an homage to one of her wonderful teachers who pronounced crystals: "creezzztals"
