HOW IT ALL STARTED
Chrissy's love of rocks, crystals, and other natural elements developed in early childhood, fascinated by the natural world (and the supernatural world of her "imagination"). Growing up in a conservative, Western-Medicine focused family meant holistic and alternative and metaphysical sciences were all considered useless and full of bologna, and Chrissy learned to keep her curiosities and learnings heavily shrouded.
While studying Geology at the University of Oregon in the early-mid-90's, her deeply rooted passion for the natural world around her was reignited. It was also during that time that Chrissy found herself meandering into a mystical shop for the very first time, admiring how full of incense, tarot cards, and polished stones it was and how she noticed all kinds of changes happening when connecting with her crystals.
For over 2 decades now, Chrissy has been working with crystals and building her metaphysical and crystal healing knowledge and experience, all on a foundation of deeply seeded passions for caring about, healing, nurturing, and educating others on some of the often overlooked beauty that this planet offers. Each purchase supports Chrissy in her efforts of picking up trash from the beach or the forest, writing notes of gratitude to the ocean, and offering Reiki to the planet itself, and putting her heart and soul into all of it.
After Chrissy taught herself some jewelry making basics in the early 2000's, she naturally began including more and more crystals and stones in accessories she made for herself, digging deeper into the energies. Everything is energy, afterall. Friends and colleagues admired her work back then and began asking her to make them something.
At that time, Chrissy was growing her photography work and started a side hustle biz (Iridescent Moment LLC) as a creative outlet for the long hours and commute times for the unsatisfying corporate work she found herself in, and the jewelry making was just a fun side of the side. Chrissy found that she was quite passionate about everything art she could do, but did not have the courage (yet, at that point) to do much about it. The only logical thing would of course be to unlearn much of what was taught, work MORE with crystals and other metaphysical goods and services, and follow your passions - keep making jewelry for fun.
The Divine Creator/God/Goddess/the Universe had a different plan in mind... Through some beautiful miracles unfolding, two individuals at different times, oh so generously gifted Chrissy with a collection of odds n ends inherited, and another with a collection of multiple trays of beads from projects that petered out. Well, when the universe truly sees you're doing something you're passionate about, it begins to deliver materials to help you make it happen.
And the more she created, the more she learned, and her courage grew, and the more her courage caught up to her passions, sure as sh*t, things started to shift. The pieces you see samples of below/to the side as well as the items for sale in Chrissy's ETSY shop, are the culmination of all of these pieces of this beautiful puzzle coming together. As Chrissy's passions continue to grow and expand, so may her offerings
