Supernatural practices and mysticism are all the rage these days and Trend Hunter's President Shelby Walsh went straight to the source speaking with owner Sarah Foelske of spiritual emblem retailer Sticks & Stones to find out more. In the interview Foelske shares her love for eclectic travel and her desire to spread a positive message through spiritual trinkets.

Foelske handcrafts a wide variety of mystic little packages full of a wide variety of trinkets designed to heal, improve well-being and recenter the body. Inside a Sticks & Stone's package you'll find natural objects like colored feathers, scented smudge sticks, healing crystals and a rustic leather pouch. Living back and forth between Toronto and Los Angeles, Foelske enjoys to use travel and wide array of art supplies to create her work. Her main source of inspiration? Cultivating a positive mythic message. "It’s really as simple as combining the inspiration and power behind crystals, spirit animals and smudge sticks," Foelske says, "while innovating around they way they are packaged and presented, enabling these elements to be appreciated by more than just a new age community."

What is something new/innovative that Sticks and Stones does?

Sticks & Stones is a collection of objects designed for mind, body and heart.

I started this project first and foremost to spread a positive message, in new and creative format, beautifully packaged. However, in so doing I also saw the potential of creating a business out of an eclectic collection of pretty, interesting and useful objects that could be appreciated by more people if they were presented in a more approachable way.
