Creativity sparks something special within Shaunda Hale, penetrating the deepest parts of her existence. While working in the state of Connecticut Department of Correction for 20 years, she always dreamt of doing something that really made her heart sing, something that set her whole being ablaze.

Shaunda remembers the many days going into work with books, journals and loads of writing instruments stuffed in her cloth lunch bag. And, if you’re wondering…no she was not supposed to bring all that stuff in the prison, but it was one of the ways that helped  bring positive energy into the stressful environment.

During the early part of her career Shaunda introduced to this magnificent gemstone called Rose Quartz which stands for Unconditional/ Universal Love. Because the environment was extremely negative, she settled with the idea that she should carry them in her pocket to remind herself that “I AM LOVE” no matter what was going on around her and/or said to her. The best part about it…no one knew…it was her special thing.

In 2018 Shaunda retired from the department of correction, and Love Creations by Shaunda® was born where she started creating handmade cards and gifts using semi-precious gemstones to spread love and positive energy throughout the world. Love Creations by Shaunda® continues to grow and evolve.
