you. are. magic.
Hi! I'm Dawn, maker of magical adornments + creator of Elevate. I make each piece with love + intention at my home studio in Sacramento, California. High vibe crystals, sustainably harvested woods, and an appreciation for a subtle, elegant aesthetic blend together to create something that feels unique + meaningful.
I believe we all have magic inside us. The stones, with their vibrational energies, simply amplify the magic that is already within so you can see it, feel it, and live in it.
my creative path ...
I've always been drawn to malas + adornments that hold deep meaning. From the friendship bracelets of childhood to the artisan bracelets I collect from each country I travel to, I love me a good stack of bracelets. More than mere decoration, it's about the meaning + symbolism + energy. I used these bracelets of reminders of who I was + where I had been.
More than a decade after graduating art school, after casually dabbling in jewelry making for years, a turning point came in fall of 2017 when I took a yoga + mala making workshop with Bex Urban + Sacha Korellis at Love Story Yoga in San Francisco.
I was introduced to the world of crystals + sandalwood. They worked their weird + wonderful magic on me.
Within a week, things started shifting. I got clarity where there had previously been confusion. Relationships opened up. Serendipitous opportunities presented themselves. There was no denying it, something was happening.
I became a believer.
I believe in the power of the stones + crystals + sacred woods. But more than that, I believe in the power of people. Beautiful, magnificent, creative, radiant souls.
I believe we all have magic inside us. But sometimes we need help to see it, access it, and put it to use in our lives. I make each piece with the intention that these sacred woods & stones amplify that magic within you so you can ...
believe in it,
and live in it.
I believe the act of adorning is sacred.
Since the beginning of time, people have adorned themselves as a deep form of personal, cultural, and spiritual expression.
I aim to make special pieces for you to adorn yourself with that remind you of the magnificent and magical being you are.
