Founder of Stoned Crystals, Ashley Bellino was raised in the inner city suburbs of Melbourne and comes from a modern family and home. Over the past few years Ashley lent herself to the spiritual side and crystals were a natural progression from her love for yoga and meditation.
Ashley’s first startup was a jewelry label that led her to the discovery of crystals. Ashley felt like crystals had so often been boxed in as ‘hippie’ , misunderstood and undervalued by mainstream. There are no websites that demystify crystals; how they work and how we can incorporate them into the modern day life style. ENTER Stoned Crystals.
Stoned crystals is a fresh and modern take on crystals for the home and workspace. Launched in Spring of 2015 with a collection of 5 geometric shaped crystals GEO GEMS. Stoned Crystals has made a huge splash in the interiors scene offering something that tests the conventional use of crystals by making them more accessible and more fashionable to mainstream.
‘I am a very tactile person and crystals are beautiful organic objects that when picked up or gazed into release the mind from the more mundane and automatic reactions we have to almost every object we pick up these days. I try to reflect every morning and have a moment of stillness before starting my day- I use my crystals to concentrate on my intentions for that day and what I choose to manifest into this world.’ – Follow the Founder on her personal Instagram @Ashleybellino
