Based in Arizona, USA, Ancient Element Creations strives to create unique pieces of functional art and energetic tools to help support the wearer's energy bodies and healing processes. Terry and TJ make their beautiful handcrafted gemstone jewellery even more unique by charging them with Reiki techniques, to offer a personal experience for all those who wear them!
We talk with TJ and Terry about the beginning of their brand journey, their core values and what that means to them both, plus much more!
How did your brand begin?
We were motivated by our own healing journeys to help other people have positive life-changing experiences that we had. Our intent was to provide a way for people to work with their energy that was easily accessible and fit with their busy lifestyles.
When did you first fall in love with designing and knew you wanted to become a designer?
Terry began designing jewellery for the first time in a pottery class she took in 2010. She always had an interest in crystals so it wasn't long before she was making crystal jewellery as well. From there, friends began asking her if she would sell them and that's where our brand idea was born!
Values are really important to us at Jewelstreet. What are your core brand values?
Our core values are awareness and self-empowerment. We believe that through a deeper awareness of ourselves and a mindful approach to how we connect with ourselves and others, we can attract and manifest all that we desire in life.
How do you want someone to feel when they wear/use your designs?
Our jewellery is all about improving how we feel, not just for the day but the overall state of being as well. Each piece has a unique intent and purpose but in general, we look for people to feel more centred, happy and present in their lives.
If you could travel to one place in the world right now, where would it be and why?
We have an interest in travelling to highly energetic and spiritual sites to connect with the energies there. Some of our top choices are Bali and Costa Rica, among many others. Sedona is another place nearby in AZ that we plan to visit more often.
