Take a look at the fantastic jewelry from Jenny Robbins, the woman behind Moonage Daydream. Jenny makes handcrafted crystal jewelry, macrame shamballa bracelets, wire wrapped crystals and her most recent endeavor, electroforming.
Jenny has lived in Wall, New Jersey her entire life and absolutely loves it there. She is only two miles from the beach and tries to go as much as she can - she can't even imagine not living close to the ocean. Jenny has been making jewelry for about 5 years and about 2 years ago she started learning about all healing properties of crystals as well as how to wire wrap them.
Jenny's creative process is more about letting the stones and materials speak to her and then deciding in which direction to go with each piece.
"Most of the time I spread a ton of materials all over the workspace (gemstones for rings, crystal points, druzies, crushed pyrite, ring shanks, chain, jump rings), stare at it for a few minutes and then get to work."
"I'm a busy mom of two so I try to squeeze in as much studio time as I can. Ideally, I'd start by heading up to the loft in my bedroom, lighting a candle, and doing a short 15-minute meditation, followed by a big cup of tea. Then I'd sit at my desk and peacefully and productively get to work. In reality, I'll sit and work for a little while and get interrupted to make a grilled cheese, break up a fight, or to give a ride to a friend's house. Sometimes I'll get my kids involved in the process by helping me polish pieces or tie tags on them. Every little bit helps!"
Moonage Daydream will be at the Fall Bazaar on Sunday, September 25th. So, stop by and see Jenny, her jewelry and learn all about the amazing healing properties of crystals!
