A letter to you from our CEO:

Hey there, dear soulmate!
I'm the proud CEO of Merkababe Designs and I'm thrilled to share my journey with you. This little baby of mine was born out of my love for crystals, wire wrapping, and all things metaphysical. And boy, has it grown! From a small passion project in 2014 to a full-time career, Merkababe Designs has become a one-stop-shop for all your spiritual needs.
We carry my handcrafted, one-of-a-kind crystal jewelry pieces, stones, divination tools, services, and even my self-published oracle deck, Invitation to the Soul's Center. Our mission is to help you to tune into the magic, right now! Whether you choose a crystal adornment, the oracle deck, or any other tool, we guarantee that each item is energetically perfect and hand-selected with love.
Our crystals are the real deal, ethically sourced, and cleansed to perfection before they leave our shop. We don't mess around with low vibes here! We practice high-quality energetic practices daily, and we take our spiritual integrity seriously.
And let's talk about our name - Merkababe! It's a fun play on the sacred geometrical figure, the MERKABA, which translates into MIND, BODY, and SPIRIT. The Merkaba is the vehicle of light that protects and transports our consciousness to higher dimensions. And that's exactly what we're all about - raising the vibration and embodying higher and brighter awareness.
We're so honored to be walking alongside you on your spiritual journey because when one rises, we all rise! Thank you for choosing Merkababe Designs - blessings to you and yours.
