About me...well I am a full time artist and I also teach classes in glass working, clay, and various forms of jewelry making out of my home studio. I have been making my art for the last 30 years, and I have been through many stages. I work mostly with hot glass, but also love to dabble in wood-burning(pyrograhpy), silver-smithing, jewelry creation, stained glass, painting, leather-work, crochet, and clay. If I stay creating in one medium for too long I get bored, so I move back and forth frequently, but melting glass always draws me back the fastest! Must be the pyro in me!

I am inspired by, and pull my designs from nature and my surroundings here in the beautiful Arizona desert. I love color and can't help but to use a lot of it!
I love living in Arizona and enjoy hiking, traveling, rock and gem hunting, exploring, camping, star-watching, and listening to my favorite music while I burn some incense and create!

I feel so blessed to be able to live my passion and follow my journey of "Sacred Creating. I do this with intentional creating, meditation, blessing and even prayer, using these to infuse my hands and heart and to create with the healing energies of love! This process is so very healing for myself and I hope healing for others as I create and offer my "Medicine Art". My hope and joy is that I can touch just a little bit of this world with God's unconditional love through the talents He has given me!

Thanks for checking out my stuff and if you so feel inclined to leave a comment!

I love to do little things to show my gratitude, to show my love, to share my joy, to spread sunshine and sparkle out in the world, and just honor life! It helps me to pay even more attention to all the wonderful blessings around me, which seems to bring even more blessings and more joy in!  I call these little things that I do "ceremonies". I don't follow any kind of rules about it, I just follow my heart. I get up and light some candles and burn some sage and say a prayer before I start my day. I do a thankful 
ceremony and just beat on my pow-wow drum really loud and send the vibrations of peace and unconditional love out into the world. I hear a song that I love and I stop on the spot and dance my heart out for pure JOY and send that energy of the dance out to the world and to God as a gift of gratitude! I ask for the spirits of my past loved ones to surround me as I have a fun day of creating, to share the love of that with me. I go to sleep with crystals under my pillow to aid in bringing me messages from the angels. I create prayer altars and write my prayers and others prayers on scrolls and place them into a bowl surrounded by crystals to send the prayers to God and be strengthened by Mother Earth. I look for the secrets that are hidden in a day to bring me smiles, I listen for the whispers brought by the wind and the birds and trees to tell me of love.  Beauty, Joy and Miracles are all around us!
For those who have eyes to see and ears to hear!

I am not sure what you are asking, do you want to know what stone is best for focus?

That would be nice, and some info how to make it simple.

There are many stones that help with focus and concentration, here are a few of the easier ones to obtain:
*Agate enhances mental function, improving concentration, perception and analytical abilities.
*Amethyst calms and stimulates the mind, helping you become more focused, enhancing memory and improving motivation.
*Carnelian sharpens concentration and dispels mental lethargy.
*Citrine stimulates the brain, strengthening the intellect. It promotes motivation, activates creativity, enhances concentration and revitalises the mind.
Clear Quartz (Rock Crystal) aids concentration and unlocks memory.
*Fluorite increases our powers of concentration.
*Hematite stimulates concentration and focus, enhancing memory and original thought.
*Smokey Quartz aids concentration.
*Tiger Eye has the power to focus the mind, promoting mental clarity.
