Polygems is based in Victoria, BC and started business in 2010. We specialize in polymer clay jewelry and creations.
The draw to polymer clay is its versatility. It is light, durable, and highly customizable, which opens a world of possibility. Journals, wands, jewellery, pens, incense holders and so much more...
Creating a new piece has always been about experimentation, playing with colours and texture. The flexibility of polymer clay give our products a unique flair that set them apart from others.
While polymer clay will always be the first love, original paintings have recently been added to the mix. We are also using those paintings for greeting cards.

The Answer Within
Was I ever relieved when I realized that we can change ourselves if we really want to! For so long I believed that once a habit was entrenched we were stuck that way. And it wasn't just "habits" but what I sometimes call my "Standard Operating Procedures", just those things I did without even realizing that I was doing them or that I had the choice: letting emotions rule my life, worrying too much about what everyone else thought and not enough about what I thought, and yet at the same time still being so terrified that I came off somewhat egocentric. Not exactly the balance I wanted.
But, in came hypnotherapy and it changed my mind and my life. I was actually able to "rewire" my brain to allow me to better operate in the way I desired. Hypnotherapy gave me insight into where my issues came from and how I could resolve them. It isn't magic, but it is the closest thing to magic I have experienced.
I decided to name my practice "The Answer Within" because I noticed that that was where the power of the change or transformation was, within ourselves.
I believe it is my open, relaxed and non-judgmental attitude that allows clients to feel comfortable and confident sharing with me. My insight into human motivations and behaviours grants me the ability to offer clients effective, supportive assistance in releasing negative experiences and reaching their goals by helping clients find healthy perspectives of their life experiences and themselves.

Angel Wing Readings
I am an International Medium and I have lived on beautiful Vancouver Island, in Canada, since 2016, after living in Alberta for over three decades.
One of the main reasons that I chose this move is because I have often witnessed people living in fear and worry. I decided I didn't want to be one of those people and took a daring step out of my comfort zone, to heed my call to be close to my family and the ocean, which I feel a strong connection to.
Sometimes in life we become too comfortable, too stable, too stale. Challenges are meant to bring in new energy and resources, to shake us up and keep us alive.

Art of Ascension
Brought to you by Harley
What is The Art of Ascension as taught by the Ishayas?
A Meditation? Not exactly; it's not an Eastern or New Age practice, it's more like Prayer, but even that word doesn't convey what Ascension is. Both words lead to misunderstandings based on previous and common uses of them. Most people think of concentration or mysticism when they hear the word Meditation; Ascension is an effortless method. Or they think of religion when they hear prayer; Ascension requires no beliefs of any kind. It's a type of inner prayer or meditation that everyone can do at anytime, anywhere no matter what religion, belief or walk of life they come from ... for anyone, anytime, anywhere!
Jyorei, like prayer, is universally beneficial. The Light of Jyorei purifies and uplifts, there are no negative side effects. Although we have not studied this subject scientifically, it appears to encourage homeostasis. Both overactive and underactive immune systems seem to benefit from Jyorei. It calms down those who are agitated and it rejuvenates those who are tired. Jyorei is good for body, mind, and spirit.

Wendy - Artist and Designer
An amazing Silver & Coppersmith, Wendy will be bringing her beautiful, unique handcrafted jewellery and inspired beaded designs to share with us all!
A naturally gifted clairvoyant psychic, singer/songwriter and events planner who calls Victoria, BC home. A spiritual awakening in her early 20’s opened her heart and mind to the love of the universe and was the beginning of an amazing journey. She offers psychic sessions using Tarot cards in Victoria, Western Canada and around the world via phone and Skype -- having given over 4000 readings so far in her career. An avid traveller, Andrea is a cultural seeker of universal truths that unite humanity with a life purpose of spreading love and peace.
Back in 2009, Andrea founded and organized the very first Intuitive Arts Festival which has been running annually ever since. Attracting over 700 people each year, the Intuitive Arts Festival brings together Psychics, Healers and Shamans from across BC to celebrate and promote Holistic Health and Metaphysics. The 11th annual Intuitive Arts Festival is happening Nov. 2nd and 3rd at the Da Vinci Centre.
THE BRIDGE BETWEEN THE WORLDS
Understanding ourselves is fascinating and addictive. It makes us curious or has us doing a fancy dance to avoid meeting the uncomfortable parts of ourselves face to face. Figuring it all out can be indeed be intimidating. A reading acts as the bridge between the worlds.
Tarot cards are connectors that articulate what we can’t always find words for. They are an insightful and intelligent delivery system that aligns our intrinsic awareness with the messages from spirit. The voice of your expanding consciousness is liberated during our session. Yes, your spirit is attempting to get your attention.
I am solution oriented. Together we touch upon the limiting behaviors and situations that no longer serve you and unleash ideas and plans for the future. Where are you right now and where you would like to be? Using multiple decks, I call upon the magic of tarot to provide visual clarity, confirmation and inspiration to facilitate change.
Decisions become easier, as does reconnection with your power, potential and purpose.
Because you are human, the cards also speak to your patterns and habits that no longer serve. For example, the separation that you feel is what we are here to. The ache in your heart is here to find its healing medicine through self-love. Confusion seeks to be sorted and suffering desires to be understood and heard. Stubborn emotional vulnerabilities, unresolved issues and sticky energies respond well once given permission to transmute. Make your chaos creative and execute a blueprint for transformation.
My intuitive interpretation of the cards reflects the openings that are most beneficial at this time. Together with spirit, you are reminded of your essence and the visuals celebrate this connection. Their story unravels your emotional, physical and spiritual energy and spotlights the energetic disruptors. This is all about empowerment - for you are the architect of your life.
What are you ready to let go of? The Divine has a delightful sense of humor!

Healing comes in many forms, from physical, emotional to the subconscious mind and it is a profession that I have been doing for many years without even knowing it. Two years ago, I chose to start my business, in foot reflexology, increasing my education to include ear and head reflexology. It is fascinating learning more about the body and how our thought lives effect every part of the body. When I developed a bulged disc and was waiting for surgery, I decided that I needed a new career, so I looked at reflexology. It has been quite a journey, and I am so happy that I chose to start my business. My health issues give me empathy for others who struggle. I am so grateful that I am able to help the ones who choose to come experience my healing hands. I am Vanessa Backlund and I am a mobile reflexologist in the Victoria area. I can help and will come to you at your convenience, starting with a no charge consultation.
