I've recently fallen for the work of L.A.-based Sticks & Stones. Designer Sarah Foelske grew up in Boulder, Colorado, "a little hippie" she admits, and was always fascinated by the healing powers of gems, smudge sticks and the concept of "spirit animals". With Sticks & Stones, she's created these fantastic gifts packages that combine these elements, each with a different theme. "The Protector" set (above) for example is meant to ward off negative energy and provide power and confidence, and includes an acorn charm, hand-painted feather and leather pouch, pyrite and a Yerba Santa smudge stick (an explanation of what each piece represents can be found on the site). Other sets include "The Guide", "The Creator", "The Optimist" and "The Lucky Charm". I love the idea of picking out the perfect one to suit your friends and family.
