Welcome to Wicked Stones.
I'm Vikki - I'm an Artist and Crystal worker.
Where did this all start: My grandfather gave me my first crystal back when I was about 9 years old and it was the beginning of a journey for me. Perhaps giving this stone to me was a way to keep his granddaughter distracted while he shopped but it began a life long passion for me. In case you are curious, it was a slab of Mexican Crazy Lace Agate and I still have it.
Thanks Grampa! I miss you every day.
Over the Years:
A lot of you have gotten to know me over the years as that quirky girl with the sunburn and crushed cowboy hat. That gal with the slanted and somewhat sideways sense of humour with the bad timing and really *sad* jokes. LOL. And yes, rumour has it that I've actually been spotted trading crystals for coffee at vending events - yes it's true! Some of you are probably reading this and chuckling as you are wearing one of my pieces that you got for coffee from me in trade. Especially when trapped at an outdoor event with no hope on escaping to get one!
I'm going to keep the details light so you really do get to understand that even though I'm an established crystal jewelry business, I'm also human behind the screen you are looking at right now.
I started Wicked Stones back in the late 90's - the era of bad leggings and strange pants! It's since then grown and changed as we went through adventures of supplying Healing and Metaphysical shops across Canada and into the United States, as well as Science North and other local businesses here in Northern Ontario. I've also taught workshops throughout this province and offered one on one lessons with students.
My style is simple. It focuses on the crystal as the star of the show.
I'm human and sometimes my work isn't perfect, but it's made with positive intent and joy. Over the years, I have had wonderful moments working with many of you to help you to locate the perfect crystal for your particular needs. That's my passion - to spread the joy and love of working with healing stones across our world. Many of my pieces have traveled from as far as the north and south poles and all the way across the seas and onto other continents. What a journey so far!
I've been very fortunate to come into contact with friends who have offered me their old vintage collection of gems and crystals. Many have come from shops that were run decades ago and your stone may be one that has been sitting quietly unseen for a very long time. I also work with a very small number of trusted suppliers that I have gotten to know personally. Now and then you may find stones that have also come from my travels across Ontario where I have personally found them in nature. The picture to the left here, is me collecting minerals in Ontario. I'm also working to build a Canadian Collection of just gems from across this country.
Each piece on Wicked Stones that states is hand made, has been crafted with love and passion right here in our shop. One at a time. There is no mass production here. I will, from time to time, offer sterling and pewter pendants as I have clients who are seeking them here in Canada. But it will clearly state that they are not made by me.
Every moment of working with these beautiful crystals has been a gift of good energy and joy for me. I'm so glad to be able to create these pieces and offer them to you in hopes that you find as much love and joy in them as I have had in discovering them and working with them.
Thanks for reading and I hope you have an awesome day. Cheers!

Hi Vikki! Treasures in my mailbox today! Thank you so much for all the lovely things I've gotten from you over the years!
The Crystal is right up there and absolutely perfect. I have always hesitated about buying online & essentially sight unseen, especially with stones and jewelry. But now I have trusted you twice and you have definitely not disappointed.
