Naomi is a skilled artist devoted to the mission of inspiring others to live their lives’ passion and never stop dreaming.
With a creative eye for design at a young age, Naomi found herself creating in her free time through drawing, painting, poetry, jewelry making, sewing, and more. Naomi was reminded of her passions in college for Interior Design and taking as many extra art classes as she could. Her skills grew in strides over the years and she continued to take classes while developing her craft and a keen eye for detail. She found comfort in creating and began diving deeper within, which led her to gemstones and yoga.
In the summer of 2015 Naomi went to Kauai, Hawaii and got certified as a 200hr registered yoga teacher. Soon after returning, she studied at the Institute of Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy and graduated as an Ayurvedic Consultant in August of 2016. She has studied the metaphysical and symbolic properties of gemstones vibrations and has used them to enrich her everyday life. Naomi enjoys teaching classes to children and adults.
Some of Naomi’s hobbies are exploring surroundings with her husband Brett and their pug Frank. She enjoys being by the ocean, lakes, walking through the forest, crafting with friends, drinking tea, cooking delicious food to share with others, and continuing a journey of peace while holding a vibration of light.
Naomi’s jewelry and dream catchers are whimsical and create wonder through their focus on the metaphysical properties of gemstones. Her vision is to spread love, light, strength, and kindness and remind everyone to tap into these higher vibrations. What started as a jewelry collection dedicated to inspiring others, now mirrors the spirit of her incredible customers and, as such, continually inspires us.
We met Naomi at a Hot Air Balloon Festival in Tigard, Oregon in 2016. We have purchased these very earrings that we are now proudly offering to you.

We met Galyna when we traveled to Lviv, Ukraine. Each bracelet that she made for us shares part of her story.
“I am a girl who likes to discover the world and myself. I often do it through creativity. I tried different materials and stopped my choice on natural stones – because I felt they spoke to me the most. I realized my passion for the stones when I almost felt jealous when someone touched them without my permission. At that time I worked as a jewelry designer to create unique jewelry made of natural stones. I love to experiment: I’m curious about how different minerals will feel next to each other.
Through these experiences, I learned how to sense these minerals, how to understand which minerals are comfortable next to each other and which would want to be separated from there rest. Quite often, before combining the stones in a bracelet – I ask their permission to be placed together. After 10 years of working with minerals, I’ve learned to understand their language.
People often ask how to choose jewelry for onerself. It’s easy. Just listen to your heart and choose the stone that is most desirable to you. Remember that you choose a friend, not a decoration.”
Govind, in India the name symbolizes protector or sustainer. This is the name of the young gentlemen who owns the shop where I got this scarf.
“Making the scarves or sourcing them, from our fellow neighbors is fun, but really the most fun I have is when I see someone wearing them and the smiles we share when they like them, we have had our shop for years, it was once my grandfathers and now it’s mine, that feels good” says Govindas, as his mother brings me a cup of tea with cookies and compliments the scarf on me.
To me, India is a perfect balance of light and dark. And in some way, I want people to experience this. As most people say when they wear it “It feels like I am wearing India” – and that’s when my mission is complete.
