THE ENERGETICS OF CRYSTALS AND THE CREATION OF THE POUND PENDULUM:
HOW POUND JEWELRY WAS BORN:
On a whim—like an “accident” that is not an accident—I started a jewelry business with my mother and sister in 2012. Throughout our childhood, my mother had been collecting stones and making jewelry for me and my sister with zero intention of ever selling them. All of that changed when I brought a handful of her jewelry pieces to New York City and started selling them off my neck! Nearly every woman who bought a POUND piece returned to us with an incredible story or account of a deep healing. This led us to uncover the truth of these ancient minerals and the energetic properties of stones and crystals.
WHERE THE NAME “POUND” COMES FROM:
Originally the pieces we were creating were larger “statement”-style pieces with some weight to them. My mom’s name is “Linda,” and my name is “Becca,” and we felt like using the first two letters of our names as a symbol. The abbreviation “lb.”—which stems from the Latin word Libra, means “balance,” and is a description of weight. It felt perfect. The name “POUND” has evolved and now that the POUND Pendulum is our biggest seller (another accidental design that was not an accident), it still carries the same depth in symbolic resonance for us. A pendulum always seeks to find balance, coming to rest in the center.
WHY WE BELIEVE IN THE ENERGETICS OF CRYSTAL HEALING:
Crystals are made up of the same stuff we are. Energy! They have been used since ancient times to heal emotional, physical and mental ailments. Their formation takes place in the crust of the Earth over millions of years due to pressure and heat. Their internal atomic structure is known to be the most stable internal patterning found in matter, which is why they are used in modern technology such as watches, computers and cell phones. They can literally alter electromagnetic and energetic fields that surround us.
Crystals and stones vary in structure, color and energetic healing based upon the elements that surround them environmentally during their growth. They hold their own consciousness and can attune to our specific vibrations to assist us in unblocking or releasing unwanted negative feelings. Stones and Crystals can also help magnify that which we set our intentions upon, holding space for our biggest dreams.
STONES TO KEEP IN YOUR ARSENAL:
Some stones and crystals that everyone can benefit from.
Amethyst: A Crown Chakra Stone that assists in meditation, sleep, rest and is also known as a talisman for healing addictive patterning or behaviors.
Clear Crystal: Known as the “Master Healer,” clear quartz is the most abundant quartz on the planet and can attune to YOUR specific vibrations.
Hematite: This stone is formed in the core of the Earth and is one of the most “grounding” stones we have surrounding us. Use Hematite to help you feel more connected to the truth of your essence.
Rose Quartz: “The Stone of the Heart” and a stone that represents unconditional love. Use Rose Quartz to tap back into your heart-space and open up to the art of giving and receiving LOVE.
Citrine: A “Stone of Manifestation,” Citrine connects us to our power. To our light. To our ability to shine as our brightest selves in this world as we tap into our WORTH.
Black Tourmaline: A highly Protective Stone, Black Tourmaline stores its own electric charge within, assisting in blocking electromagnetic frequencies. An incredible ally to ward off unwanted excess negativity.

TIPS ON ATTUNING TO YOUR CRYSTALS:
~ Most importantly, spend time with your stones. Their energies are powerful and potent with messages for you when you carve out time and space to sit still with them. Whatever message or feeling that shows up in your heart when attuning to a crystal or stone is the truth. Go with it!
~ It is lovely to cleanse a new crystal or stone with sage, Palo Santo or any sacred smoke. It is like wiping the slate clean when you start working with a new stone.
~ Your crystals will recalibrate and re-energize themselves. However, it is nice to give them a little boost in the light of a full moon to charge them with extra power. Especially if that full moon has meaning for you. New moons are a great time to cleanse your stones/crystals and to set NEW intentions with them.
~ Place them somewhere that feels meaningful and special to you. Somewhere you will be able to check in with them and see them often. Amethyst is great near your bed or a meditation spot. Black Tourmaline can absorb EMFs and can be placed near electronics. I love placing Citrine and Clear Quartz in a window where the light of the sun can shine on them.
~ NOTE: If your intention is genuine, your healing with your stones and the messages you receive from them will be genuine. Impossible to do it wrong when it comes from the heart.
HISTORY AND USE OF THE PENDULUM:
In the last 500 years or so, the pendulum has become widely-used as a tool to help us tune in to the knowledge and wisdom that resides beyond our five senses. It can assist us in reaching beyond our rational, thinking, conscious mind in order to tap into our higher wisdom.

WHY POUND JEWELRY PIECES ARE SO RAD ☺:
As a family of creators and a mystically grounded team, we trust in the divine timing to create jewelry that feels potent and powerful. We travel the world in search for the most stunning and unique, ethically sourced stones we can find. It is important to us that we, as a team, are able to hand select each stone we work with as often as possible. We want our stones to FEEL good on the skin and to the touch, have a high-vibrational aura about them, and attract the eye with what we personally perceive as TOTALLY stunning and interesting!
Certain crystals and stones will choose you. Magic is absolutely present, but it’s chemistry, too. You and our beautiful stones and crystals share an atomic makeup and vibrate at the same frequency.
Trust yourself! The stone, crystal or POUND piece you are called to is also calling you.
