My name is Esmeralda and I created St. Emerald with the intention to create one of a kind pieces that will help bring inner peace, healing, raise frequencies as well as raise awareness for mental health. I’m an electroforming artist and use chemistry and electricity to plate copper particles on to any object. I mainly work with copper and natural crystals and stones to create pieces that you can adorn yourself with. My goal and overall intention is to create products that reflect my beliefs. Along the path of self healing and self love, I've learned a lot about myself! Creating with my hands is therapeutic for me and I want to share what I do while empowering those that come across my story. My work varies from handmade crystal jewelry to smoke cleansing sticks, cleansing sprays, herbal bath teas, and candles.
