The BEST Fidget Spinner Ever! <== Click to see a video I took of my son using his Autism Awareness Pendant as a fidget spinner that has stopped him from biting his nails! I actually noticed that his nails need clipped again! This is the only fidget spinner that hasn’t been lost, stolen or broken and has sparked many conversations!
I was so excited to be asked to return to the Victoria Autism Expo! It’s a great event and there are even more vendors and businesses registered this year! And it’s a full day! 9-5! Aaaaaand IT’S FREEEEEEE! The workshops sound so fantastic that I almost wish I wasn’t a vendor so I could go to them!
I have a huge inventory of #AutismAwareness pendants that are not posted to my online store yet that I have been saving for this event! Please come check out the Expo and choose the PERFECT fidget spinner for $10 off at the event on Saturday!
Don’t forget that all my rocks are found on the beaches of beautiful Vancouver Island!
Autism Society of Central Vancouver Island (ASCVI) is hosting an Autism Expo to connect families with organizations and businesses that offer autism intervention services. I will be there as a vendor selling my Autism Awareness Puzzle Piece Pendants! Come to Nanaimo and check it out! Free food and admission! Lots of crafts and games for kids to do! It’s going to be an amazing day!

I finally broke down and bought an actual light-box! So stoked!
Also, I’m pleased to announce that my online store now accepts Credit Cards, Etsy Gift Cards as well as PayPal!
I know the quality of the photos aren’t up to my regular standards, but I figured, just take some pictures and get them online already! So please visit my Etsy store (it’s that gift wrapped box in the right hand column–>) where you can take a look at the ones I have uploaded. They are in a section called ‘Autism Awareness Pendants’. I have a ton more to take pictures of…about 25 more ready to be polished and even more ready to be shaped. It’s all very labour intensive, but I absolutely LOVE my job!
Please pass on my webpage in whatever way you can. Twit it, Facebook status it, email it!
I am so pleased with how they have all turned out. It’s a completely different line than my regular pendants and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed creating them…from scratch…out of rocks…cut into slabs…pre-shaped with a tile cutter…shaped with my dremel using a diamond tipped bit…and then polishing them. Lovingly.
If you have a special rock that you would love to see as a pendant spinning freely on a swivel that you will wear with pride, please don’t forget that I also do commissioned work! That rock in a bowl on your coffee table that you picked up on a beach years ago can be sooooo much more than that! Why not remember that day, or moment, or vacation when you look in the mirror, or when your hand unknowlingly reaches down out of habit and gives it a little spin, or every time someone compliments you on it? And believe me. There will be compliments.

Christmas is quite literally right around the corner and I have added new pendants to my online store just in time! Take a moment to look at them and consider giving a gift this year that is one-of-a-kind and will be cherished forever.

May you be richly blessed…and richly bless someone!
I like to give credit where credit is due. And giving credit to my Web/Marketing/Social Media Expert is long overdue! My website, Facebook page
, online Etsy store
, My logo, Business Cards…basically EVERY aspect of my business except making the actual pendants, has been expertly and professionally made by bakroots creative *.
When I say everything, I do mean everything! Right down to the wonderful pendant collages in my posts here. I have received impeccable service, invaluable advice and cannot recommend their services highly enough!
Seeing as almost all of Resonated Rock Pendants are securely attached to a signature swivel, the title seemed fitting. I realize it’s only a matter of time before other people in this industry copy my swivel idea,(<–click me to see!) because it is a really really cool feature, but I’m not looking forward to that happening. It’s one of the things that sets my work apart. Being able to see all sides of your one-of-a-kind piece is unique and fun to play with too!
Lately I have had the pleasure of commissioned work which has been very exciting! I thought I would post some before and after pictures of the pieces I have done for people. You too can find a rock you like or means something to you and have it made into a beautiful, wearable, work of art!
If you are looking for a completely different gift for someone (or yourself!) that will be cherished forever, please check out my online store and give the gift that heirlooms are created from!

So. Enough about you, let’s talk about me! Seriously though……
I want to take a moment to tell you something I am so excited about! I have launched my online artisan jewelry boutique called Resonated Rock. It is up and running and officially open for business!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with what I do, I will briefly explain…
I’ve spent years combing the beaches of southern Vancouver Island selecting unique rocks and skillfully refining old-world lapidary techniques in my home-based studio. The labour intensive process is started by hand sculpting and shaping rocks and turning them into pendants. This is followed by a meticulous polishing process which brings out an almost glass-like finish that captivates the eye. After carefully drilling into the rock and attaching the appropriate finding, it is ready to wear for any occasion.
Hours upon hours of work go into each piece, and the quality is impeccable.
