Intentional Charms

I haven’t been posting here as much as I’ve wanted to but sometimes life is like that.  There’s always an ebb and flow,  sometimes the tide is high and all you can do is watch; other times the tide is low and you have plenty of time to gather and create and act.  I’ve found that at least for me, I can’t predict what any given month will bring and I’m okay with that because I don’t like monotony anyway.

I wanted to share a really fun project I got to work on for an old friend.  She contacted me about making a charm bracelet.  Although she didn’t exactly say it in so many words, I think she wanted this piece to help re-inspire her.  I recognized in her description of what she wanted a yearning for something more, some deeper sense of meaning.  I think many of us reach a point in our lives where we’ve achieved so many of the things we aspired to, we’ve travelled, found love, given birth to children or careers and yet we find ourselves at a crossroads.  Knowing that we have it all and still longing for more, something we can’t quite put our fingers on.  It’s almost as if our lives “come up for review” and though it often feels painful and confusing, it gives us  the push we need to cultivate a deeper relationship with ourselves.

photo-4This bracelet has stones in the colors of a sunset and every charm (including a custom one we made for her) represents something specific to her and her life, something that she’s grateful for and inspired by.  There is so much power and energy in this piece and I truly believe it will help guide her in the next leg of her journey, as all amulets do.

The Secret to Achieving Your Goals

STAYG headshot_lg file

I’m so excited to start this class!  Come spend 12 weeks with me learning how to make amazing things happen in your life.   What a great way to kick off the new year!

Do you have lots of ideas and very little follow through?  Is there something in your life that you’ve been wanting to create but just can’t seem to give it the attention it needs?  Whether it’s losing weight, starting a business or improving a relationship The Secret to Achieving Your Goals will help you move through any blocks you may have straight into freedom.

Ways your life will change from taking this class:

1.  Improved ability to focus

2.  Reprogramming of old outdated beliefs

3.  Learn to develop and cultivate approval for yourself

4.  Learn how to manifest more abundance, money, love and happiness (this is the best part!)

One of the things that I love so much about this class is that it’s not just listening to audios and doing worksheets.  The people in the class form a mastermind, a sacred circle within which your transformation will be deep.  I use a combination of one on one coaching, Law of Attraction principles, hands on exercises and subconscious reprogramming to teach you how to redirect your focus and start creating the kind of life you want to live.

This class is not a magic wand that will take away all of your problems.  YOU are the magic wand.  Deciding to take your experience into your own hands and create a new, more expansive life is a choice you have to make.  If you’re ready to say yes to a more satisfying life and you’re willing to do the work to claim it, then this class will be magical.  This class will absolutely help support you on that journey and provide you with the tools you need to thrive.  Believe me, you will experience some very profound changes.

The Secret to Achieving your Goals curriculum was developed by The Secret To Life Coaching and has been taught to 1,000’s of people around the world and it works.  People are able to create new jobs, happy relationships, better health and all of those juicy things we want to get our hands on.  It’s about changing the way you think and operate in your world.  It’s about being brave enough and determined enough to create the life of your dreams.  Come learn how to do just that.

Next step:  Please email me here at nathaperkins(at) for more information and to schedule a preliminary coaching session.  This session is FREE (no obligation) and will be extremely helpful and life changing in and of itself.  I always like to offer a free session up front just to be sure you’re a good fit for the class and I’m a good fit for you!

As I mentioned before, Luscious Metals is about to do some changing.  Many of you know that my attention has been split over the last few years.  I’ve been running this company as well as completing some rigorous training in the world of personal development.  I was certified to become a Master Life Coach and began to coach with a phenomenal company called The Secret to Life Coaching last year and I’m still totally immersed in education and various trainings with a focus on psychology and spirituality.   I’ve been part jeweler, part life coach and part student for 3+ years now and it’s been a whirlwind and a balancing act.


I’ve always believed that jewelry is more than just an accessory and I always stayed true to the vision of creating intentional jewelry.  My collections  have focused on pieces that were beautiful but also  meaningful and powerful; when women feel beautiful and loved, they are infinitely more powerful.  As a brand, we worked with the concept of love by creating the Sweetheart Collection.  This line of jewelry was meant to be sentimental and worn as a reminder of all the love we have in our lives and I’m so proud to say that there are hundreds if not thousands of women out there today wearing our pieces inscribed with the names of their babies, husbands, pets and special dates.  We embraced the empowerment concept by inscribing powerful and motivational words on almost every piece of jewelry we make and also by holding contests like our Real Life Beauty promotion last year.  We’ve brought in healing gemstones, culturally symbolic jewelry and metaphysical information in many ways too- like our  7 Weeks of Rainbows Celebration and our Divine ~ Align Collection.  My vision was to present holistic information that related to all of us as women; I wanted to be more than a brand selling products but rather a brand that empowered us to be wise and confident and feel loved.  It’s been a journey and a success but I’m ready to bring these concepts to a deeper and broader level.  While I have loved designing and manufacturing 1,000’s of pieces of jewelry over the years, I don’t feel that jewelry and jewelry marketing is in alignment with where I am now and the gifts that I have to offer at this point.



So, here are the changes I’ve been talking about:  I’m going to go straight into coaching and teaching classes full time and essentially close shop at Luscious Metals.  Over the next few weeks I’ll be releasing new one of a kind pieces for sale through the holiday season and will be wrapping it up after that.

Angel Wing Workshop_abundance

I’ll also be launching my new website soon and will have new offerings  to share with you!  In the meantime, I have 2 classes scheduled.  One is an Angel Wing Pendant Workshop December 6 (you can register for that by clicking this link) and the other is a class called The Secret to Achieving your Goals (starts Tuesday January 6 at 10am MST)  This is a 12 week course I teach for The Secret to Life Coaching.  It is a tele course that meets once a week over the phone so it’s easy to take for anyone, anywhere.  In this course I will teach you to reprogram your old beliefs around what it is possible to create in your life.  Do you have something you’ve been wanting to bring into fruition and haven’t been able to make it happen?   Changes that you’ve been wanting to make?  This is the perfect class for you! It’s also a great class for anyone who wants to learn how to make decisions and really show up in their life, and it is truly a transformational class.   If this sounds interesting to you, please email me at nathaperkins [at] to schedule a free coaching session.  This single session alone will be life changing and will  help you get a good idea of what to expect in the class so you can decide if you’d like to move forward and enroll in the class.  Please know that this session in no way obligates you to work with me either!  (Maybe you just need a free coaching session!)

Look for the Holiday Collection release and more info coming soon.  I’m so excited!

2014 1
What do you want to create in 2014?
Write a letter to the Universe (or Source or God or whatever your word for it is), much as many of us used to write letters to Santa Claus… “Dear Universe, in 2014, I would dearly love your help. Take away my need to control life and help me trust you. Help me feel your love, share your love, and BE your love. Here are my dreams…make them come true. Guide me and let me know what to do and when to do it. And if you have better dreams for me, I gratefully accept your gifts and your grace.”
And now, list your dreams, great and small, all of them, no matter how long it takes. And when you are done, as you read your letter out loud to the Universe, take time as you read each dream, to imagine you have already received it. What does it feel like? Stop and give thanks. Go on to the next. Repeat this reading/feeling as many times as you like in the years to come, for in truth, this is a powerful prayer, not just to ask, but to tune into that which you seek.

I didn’t write that. It came to me in a beautiful email from a woman who channels angels and it struck me as something that I should do. I love the idea. I love it so much that I wrote out my list and got really clear on some of my dreams and aspirations for this year. It’s a beautiful list and I was able to really hit on the things that are important to me going forward. My plan was to post them all right here, but then I got scared. Scared to share, scared to expose myself so deeply.
I have a hard time discerning how much to share about myself, here on this forum. I read so many beautiful blogs written by women who pour their hearts out and move me so deeply; I want to create that same movement for other women. I feel so called to write things about myself and my process that may help someone else to see themselves in a way that they hadn’t before. But then I falter because after all, this blog for the past 8 years has been about jewelry. I’ve kept it intentionally impersonal because I wasn’t in a place where I wanted to expose myself in any way shape or form. I was writing from my image, not my soul. One of the things I’ve been working on lately is learning and developing appropriate boundaries. I’ve always struggled with having proper boundaries and I feel that most of us do. Mine have always felt either too loose or too rigid. When they’re loose, I hate myself for not having my shit together, not knowing better, not seeing it coming. When they’re too rigid I feel bitchy, sharp, mean, cold. I never know how much of myself to give or to show. I struggle with what’s socially correct, what’s polite, how will the other feel, how will the other see me, will people think I’m showing off, will people think I’m ridiculous, will sharing my process help someone out there in some way? My mind becomes this stew of self-consciousness and confusion and it’s hard to decide which direction to take; to share or not to share. Inevitably (according to me anyway) I choose the “wrong” one and then come down hard on myself for not having appropriate boundaries.
I’ve been trying to chart a course for my jewelry design business and my coaching and consulting business and trying to figure out an easy and succinct way to merge the two and I keep bumping up against this question of boundaries. Do I start a new blog and publish the deep stuff there and keep this one light and fluffy and happy-happy? Or do I assume that everyone who reads this blog: women buy my jewelry and those that know me personally, all have the capacity and interest to read about my personal process as it relates to my business and my life? Because while I am writing for myself, I am also writing for them. We all have so much wisdom to impart to each other and the only way we can all do that for each other is to develop our voice and communicate in whatever form that takes. Right? So the decision remains to be made. Is there to be a fork in the road or can I continue to walk this path albeit with one foot in jewelry and design and the other in coaching and writing?
