A friend asked me about Herkimer Diamonds - are they actually diamonds? What are they supposed to do? Are they expensive? All good questions. And you know how much I love to talk about gemstones!

Amy Cousin’s Journey to Jewelry

Three Sisters Eclectic Arts

Amy Cousin is a new addition to Three Sisters Eclectic Arts this fall.  However, saying that she is a jewelry artist doesn’t really paint a clear picture of what you get when you look at or wear Amy’s jewelry.  She is an artist with healing intentions.  Healing herself through art and healing others through the power of gemstones.  I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with Amy at a glorious Giese Memorial Library in Wyoming, MN and asked her about her “Journey to Jewelry.Amy Cousins1WM“My Journey to Jewelry is woven into my journey as a parent.

C Dyann: How did you get started with Amy Cousin Jewelry?

Amy Cousin: After the birth of our third child, I gifted myself a jewelry making class and tried my hand at wirework, pearl knotting, and bead stringing. The wire got me! I just loved the way you have to connect with it, respect it and work with it.
Around that same time, we opened our book and gift shop. I put the jewelry I made on display, and they sold pretty well. Then people started requesting custom pieces designed with gemstone energy connections in mind, which is an aspect of jewelry design that has always been important to me. So my jewelry really started out as a sideline item in our first shop in Minneapolis, MN. When we moved to South Carolina in 1999, we took the shop with…
