About Dancing Amulets


The crystals, stones and colors we choose to wear can energize and heal us: they are tools to awaken our desires, support our well-being, and empower our magical intentions.

If the beauty or sentiment of a particular piece resonates with your soul, it is because its special magic is destined for your unique moving spirit...

Hello Moving Spirit!

I am Annmaria, the creatress of your Dancing Amulet. I'm a good witch who loves music and loves to dance.
I want to know you: I want to help you achieve your desires, and I want to make you magical jewelry that will move your spirit.
Since 2006, Dancing Amulets have been illuminating moving spirits on their magical journeys: connecting them to their passion, awakening their innate abilities to heal themselves, and supporting them as they share their lights, pursue their dreams, and joyfully fulfill their purposes.
Magic finds me when I connect with these kindred souls. I love hearing their stories, understanding their desires, and helping to guide them to the stones and colors that will uplift their hearts, enliven their dreams, and celebrate their personal magic.
Dance was my first true love: the release of the wild animal inside me, the one who needed to be seen, heard, and felt. I pursued it passionately and without question, following it to New York City where, after much hard work, it rewarded me with my dream job of dancing with the Paul Taylor Dance Company, and then took me all over the world.
Every tour was a transformative experience, as the endless facets of beauty and magic in the world never ceased to take my breath away. I was enthralled by the life force in the people and places I visited, humbled by their creativity and openness, and dazzled by all the pretty things they made. We spoke through a language of shared awe and love for beauty: the beauty of nature, and the beauty of art, the human expression of those larger than life feelings.This magical connection was so simple but so thrilling: I knew that no matter where I went, I would find friends.
I started making jewelry during this time. I was a performer with an often overwhelming reserve of passion, so I found a special satisfaction in channeling my offstage energy into crafting objects of permanent delight. Unlike the fleeting magic of a beloved dance, this was a creation I could actually hold in my hands and keep forever. Indeed, as the years flew by, the demands of my first love grew more challenging. But during times of injury and uncertainty, the meditative act of making jewelry gave me peace and strength, while the nurturing act of sharing it with others gave me joy and purpose. My interest in the healing properties of gemstones was inevitable: as I gathered knowledge, a natural intuition was awakened, and I began creating intentionally based jewelry.
I do still dance everyday - even if it's just to the opening credits of Curious George. It keeps me grounded, fluid, and connected to my source and my sustenance: life in motion, the underlying magic, trust, and inevitability of the flow of the universe.
That uninhibited joy and acceptance, my fellow seeker, is the essence of Dancing Amulets: it is the magical energy that connects us.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to know you: your dreams, projects, plans, and your wild animal. I so look forward to creating the Dancing Amulet that speaks to the special magic in you.
