"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." -Margaret Mead
African Opal gems are known for calming and soothing - they promote inspiration and creativity, and help you recognize the possibilities and see the big picture.
Larvikite is known for its protective qualities and helping us connect with Earth's energies. It is wonderful for repelling negative energy, promoting our understanding of complicated issues, and aiding in rational decision making.

Each of us is on a journey - a journey with twists and turns that bring joy, enlightenment, challenges, and even heartache. But so often, we wait for the big moments to come along - the life-changing moments - and we forget about the little everyday moments.
Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you'll look back and realize they were the big things. -Kurt Vonnegut
Charliemadison is about helping you celebrate your little moments - reaching your goal, believing in yourself, counting your blessings. Each piece of jewelry is a token, meant to inspire and remind you of what's important in your life. Choose your own special token or share your favorite with someone you love.
My journey has been blessed with amazing little moments. I've been around the world and back again - as a child, I lived in Haiti, the Philippines, Hong Kong, and China; then in Okinawa, Japan when my husband served in the U.S. Navy. I am also a scientist - in my younger days, I studied cancer genetics in the laboratory of a Nobel laureate. I am a (retired) Navy wife and share my life with a man who proudly served our country for 20 years. We have two daughters who already share our love of art, science, and healthy food. And I've had the privilege of meeting the most amazing people along the way, all of whom have inspired me on my journey.
Why Charliemadison Originals? It's a combination of our daughters' names - a tribute to our family and a reminder that your little moments are much sweeter when you share them with those you love!
