Natural Icon

   Nature abounds with every day treasures! At Natural Icon Designs I make well made, handmade jewellery with a focus on semi precious gemstones, bone, amber, wood and freshwater pearls. I enjoy and take pride in creating every piece myself. Unless otherwise noted all pieces are one of a kind.

If you are interested in making your own treasures, I offer jewellery making classes taught in Calgary, including bead stringing, wire wrapping, making earrings, bracelets and necklaces. My fully equipped studio has a relaxed atmosphere with a low student to teacher ratio and classes are affordable with no pressure to over spend.

  You will not only have fabulous accessories, but also enhanced confidence, self esteem, and the fun and joy of creativity!

   Unlike classes at bead shops, you may bring beads you already have to a class. Supplies for one project are included in the price of the class so you don’t have to worry about keeping track of each bead that you are buying so the focus is totally on learning and designing.

Chiastolite comes from the Greek “chiastos” which means cross marked. The cross that naturally occurs on this stone has since ancient times been used as a protective device. It was used to ward off the evil eye. Chiastolite is said to aid astral travel, open gateways into mysteries and is linked to death, rebirth and transitions. Chiastolite can maintain your spirituality during trauma and illness. It can help to dissolve negative thoughts, retain a sense of calm and dispel illusions. It can help you to see all sides of a story.
