Allie’s goods are inspired by nature, she loves creating things with her hands and infusing them with Reiki energy to share with her community. Allie offers intuitive essential oil blends along with her Reiki services to send each individual off with a tool they can continue to use to drop back into a positive energetic space at any time. Allie is excited to bring workshops and circles to the community, holding space with a group of individuals is a powerful modality for change and growth.

Allie + Tess

Named for her black cat Tess, Allie & Tess jewelry was birthed through a process of self-discovery and reflection during a transitional period in Allie’s life. After attending nearly a year’s worth of jewelry classes Allie started her own studio out of her home. Allie uses natural stones, crystals, and other found objects including sea glass collected on visits back to her family in New Jersey. Allie loves incorporating Reiki energy into her pieces and offers Reiki sessions through Sophia Collective.

“Allie and Tess make such beautiful and interesting jewelry! I had a friend’s birthday coming up, so I took a piece of citrine she had and sent it to Allie. She was able to take my friend’s crystal and turn it into a ring. It turned out better than I could have hoped for! It will make a great birthday present.” – Becca

“I only have positive things to say about Allie’s distance work. Up until recently, I was looking for and applying to a new job. Because Allie knew that I would be receiving a phone call regarding the outcome of a potential employment opportunity, she created a unique invocation and burned palo santo in order to bring positive energy in my direction. Sure enough and later this same day, I received the exciting phone call and was offered the job. I couldn’t be more thankful for the support, encouragement, and motivation that was further ignited in me as a result of my work with Allie.” – Hope S.
