Why did I create Wellspring Gems?

Growing up, I always had this love for crafts. I remember being in awe with the Christmas decorations that I made as I was hopping from class to class in elementary school (grades 1-3) making Christmas ornaments that was soon brought home and hung onto my family Christmas tree.

When I turned 9, I was shopping at Granville Island with my parents and saw a package of origami paper. On the back was an interesting looking horse. I instantly asked to purchase that package so I can make that horse on the back. I spent many hours trying to figure out how to follow the instructions to make the intricate looking horse with only two pieces of paper. It was a success!

After that, I followed my journey of learning and making more and more pieces. I instantly fell in love with anything that looked crafty. I would spend days and nights making origami flower bouquets and animals. I made the classics – the crane and the stars in a jar.

One day, I was strolling through Metrotown mall and found a cart that sold supplies for making Swarovski jewelry. My love for origami, was soon transitioned to the love for making jewelry. I continued my craft and jewelry making throughout my teens and would be involved in craft shows selling handmade pieces with my sister.

Everything seemed to flow and the creativity felt very natural and meditative for me.

When it was finally time for me to choose my career, I chose Accounting. I was married at the age of 25 and had a successful career. The crafty part of me fell off the radar as I actively pursued my Accounting career. However, I felt like something was missing. I felt like I had a higher purpose and I couldn’t figure out what it was.

My relationship became rocky 5 years into the marriage and ended with a divorce 2 years later. I felt like I lost my meaning for life. I thought life was about raising a family, being a role model for children, and that was it. I started to question, what’s the purpose of life? Why am I still not fulfilled even with my successful career? I decided to seek life coaching to help me through this emotional and mental turmoil.

During life coaching, I went back to the root of what made me happy. I had a recollection as a child waking up in the morning and going into the dining room. I remember absorbing the sun as I gazed at the beauty of rainbows shining off the dining room chandelier and onto the walls. I was surrounded by rainbows. I found that I had a gift of seeing beauty.

That is when I discovered, I love making beautiful pieces for people.

However, you may wonder, why Reiki and why healing?

My rocky relationship was not the only emotional and mental turmoil I have undergone. After my honeymoon with my then husband, there was an accidental discovery. I was added to the statistics of one of the many women who suffered from uterine fibroids. I would monitor this growth only to see the terrifying reality of it growing year after year. After the divorce, I was on a search for happiness, a more fulfilling life, and to find my life purpose. I was also on a search to heal myself.

My attempt to heal myself, turned me towards natural medicine and eventually energy healing.

Through years of research, trial and error, and exploring natural medicine, I’ve soon adopted a holistic approach to health. Tapping into holistic health opened up a whole new world for me and I want to share this with the world to allow others access to a more happy and holistic lifestyle.

With the skills and knowledge gained in energy healing, I decided to incorporate something more valuable in my jewelry pieces – Crystal Healing and Reiki.

My purpose is to make beautiful pieces that can be given to others so they will be able to enjoy and heal with it, to seek out the beauty in the world and transform it into tangible creative pieces so people can see that beauty as well, and make holistic healing available to the world.

With the help of my loving boyfriend, Karlo Keet, and my supportive family, I created Wellspring Gems to fulfill my mission to “Create Something Beautiful for the World”, to “Send Love and Light to the World”, and to touch the hearts of others with every piece I make.
