Natural Icon Designs

   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.

Jet is an ancient organic gemstone. It is made from petrified hydrocarbon similar to coal. It is actually classified as a lignite coal. Jet is electrically charged much like amber when it is rubbed. It has been used as a magical protective talisman for thousands of years. It was thought to protect one from dark entities. It is said that people who are attracted to jet are old souls. It is supposed to give one courage, lift depression, stabilize your finances, and calm your nerves. Putting jet in your cashbox is traditionally done to bring abundance to the business. Jet also has a rich history as mourning jewellery made popular by Queen Victoria.
