Danna was already in love with crystals and their metaphysical meanings as a child. It is said that Danna has been connected to crystals as far back as Atlantis and has been a jeweler in many lifetimes. At the age of fifteen she had created a necklace for herself with some found stones. Before she knew it she was selling necklaces to seventeen stores nationwide with trunk shows at Macy’s and features in Seventeen and Redbook Magazines.
Danna went off to college to study fashion design and consequently became an editor for Cosmopolitan Magazine. With bouts at Vanity Fair and Harpers Bazaar, she soon after evolved to celebrity stylist, dressing well-known celebrities for events like the Oscars. It was during this time that Danna fell ill with a fatal bacterial infection called C Diff, resulting from antibiotics.
In seeking help, Danna became reacquainted with the metaphysical world of crystals and gemstones and began practicing the healing art of “the laying on of stones.” She was so moved by the healing affects of properly placing the pieces that she organically recreated Conscious Jewelry twenty years later, and is now a Crystal Healer and Stone Intuitive.
Today Danna uses her clairvoyant (clear seeing), claircognizant (clear knowing), clairaudient (clear hearing), clairsentient (clear knowing by holding an object), clairsent (clear scent), clairtangency (clear touch) and clairempath (clear emotion) abilities to provide stone readings for her clients. These abilities assist her in knowing what stone energies best benefit her clients, as well as balance their systems.
When Danna is not creating healing jewelry, speaking, teaching or writing, she can be found surfing, doing acro-yoga or simply exploring the great outdoors with a little black curly haired dog named Puck.For more information on Danna see : www.dannaweiss.com
