Hi, I’m Doctor Jewels, artist, alchemist, maker, mentor… mistress of many things, master of none. Because I believe we need less ‘controlling’ and ‘mastering’ of things. And we need more ‘flow’. As the mistress of many things, whatever I’m doing, I’m always connecting the dots between pleasure, self-worth, and purpose + those other things that really matter. Because I’m obsessed with what matters, I want to know what really matters to you? What gifts do you offer the world? My work is to help you be more of that. By tapping into that mysterious, intangible essence we all have, that’s almost extinct and needs to be salvaged. When you have a deep down feeling of your essential value, and how you’re using it to create change, I make it tangible by distilling that power into your own vision jewel. If you’re not yet sure what that essence is, my job is to uncover it. And help you embody and fully express it. Then we can make you a jewel. These vision jewels are constant reminders and pathfinders. So you can be who you really are. And get on with changing the world.
So how do I do this?By blending in-depth (doctorish) expertise on well-being (science and spirit) with intuitive insight (astrology) and the jeweller’s art (combining beautiful gems into original designs that become long-term treasures).
what matters to me: Innovation, creativity, beauty, blended with enthusiasm* (*en-theos = inspired, infused with gods*) and a healthy dose of meaning. Underpinned by a love of open horizons, an insatiable curiousity, and a deep reverence for matter.I do what I do because I believe that when we come home to our selves we access a powerful intelligence and ease that has been lost in modern life. This is the paradigm shift from ‘ego’ to ‘eco’* (*eco actually means ‘home’). When we’re at home in ourselves all our relationships change. New vistas open. Magic, mystery and wonder are restored to the world. And it’s this ancient yet entirely fresh reality that heals our hearts, our minds and the planet.
For as long as I can remember I’ve been a mix of pragmatist and fantasist. I grew up in outback Australia, where the skin of the earth is still visible. My practical desire to know how things work and fit together was nurtured by a country childhood with sheep and cattle; while my imagination wandered across the endless horizons. Thus, I discovered there was magic all around us, and it is this sense of wonder that I bring to my work. Like most little girls, from the youngest age I loved dressing up (and I still love any opportunity to dress-up). I dreamed of wearing beautiful gowns and jewels that transported me to other worlds. So I followed my imagination into a career in jewellery – which fuelled my fascination for the art of glamouring. And the energy within the materials.
