Collective Art as Healing Team
As a collective of artists we are striving to bring art to the community in a more accessible way. At Violet Hive Art Collective we believe that everyone is creative and therefor an artist. The act of expressing one’s self through art and movement allows us to have more access to our right brain and see events and consider the world for alternate perspectives. Art allows us the ability to be free. Learn more about our artists and their talents and offerings below.

As a healing practitioner, I merge decades of social work practice with a life time of jewelry design experience, to provide havens for women to innovatively explore their struggles as they experience life’s journey. I believe everyone can tap into their creative side and that although the healing path may cause multi-dimensional upheaval, when artistic expression accompanies that path, there can be an inexplicable sense of flow. Further, I perceive jewelry making as a healing art form, as it gifts us the ability to literally adorn ourselves in our courage and strength. These sessions consist of chakra-infused discussion and self-reflection that celebrate us as individuals, but more-over, illuminate our integral connection to the whole.
These elements nurture us and inspire the gemstone choices made for the expressive jewelry each woman crafts. In turn, ladies often walk away feeling at home in the energy emanating from the pieces they’ve created, as well as the transformative energy revealed within their spirit.
Approaches and Modalities include: An array of jewelry making and wearable art techniques (for all skill levels), wellness theories, as well as ancient and contemporary holistic health approaches.
Specialization: Women in all stages of life’s cycles experiencing illness or loss, seeking to express their voice and enhance their life creatively, emotionally and spiritually.
Workshops, Retreats, and Services: Healing Through Jewelry Women’s Retreats. Sessions vary from one-day (6 hours) to three-day (18 hours).
