"My philosophy of life is that we're travelers in time, that we must allow for life to flow, and she will take you down... the paths you must walk on.
"I'm a self-taught person and creativity has led me to explore many fields. I design gardens, candles, mobiles and more, and that's how today I come to work with stones – they've always been like a magnet pulling me towards them.
"My fascination towards them starts with the stones you see through the crystalline waters of rivers – they teach you to appreciate the beauty in that which is simple, natural and sublime in life, where everything is energy.
"This same life energy propels me to want to realize a dream, which is to be able to contribute a percentage of my sales to organizations that work in the protection of orangutans, elephants and other animals that are on the endangered lists because they're either hunted or their natural habitats have been destroyed.
"I believe this new project will provide new sources of work to women with small children who are limited in providing for them. With the training they receive, they'll be able to work from home and deliver the finished jewelry. I'm deeply grateful to all of you for this opportunity."
