We believe in everyone's unique potential to
change, grow and live with intention.


We are not just beadmakers. We believe that through positivity, love, courage and truth, anything is possible. We believe that our beads have the power to encourage, inspire and transform— so that everyone may live a life of intention and purpose.


What are intention beads?

handmade in chicago

Local artist, Sandy Rueve has been creating millefiori clay beads for over 20 years. Over the years, she has married her passion for beadmaking with her knowledge of astrology.


Each bead is hand-rolled from raw clay during powerful astrological transits to create a unique talisman. By capturing the energy present, Intention Beads help you realize a desire, prayer or intention.


wearable intentions

Bracelets, Necklaces, and charms are available for men and women in a variety of intentions that encourage health, prosperity, inner peace, fertility, love,
self-improvement, etc.

Intention Beads events and workshops are all sacred and astrologically planned. Each participant is guided by their astrological chart and hand makes their own clay talisman. Take a look at this New Year event we hosted with Greenheart Transforms!

Name *


Immerse in the culture, spirituality, nature and people of Bali. Known as the land of a thousand Temples, Bali is home to a people whose life is overflowing with spirit, love, connection, and simplicity. Please join us on this retreat we call. . .
Journey of the Heart!


In Bali, I feel at home. Connected and rooted in the earth. A place where my feet are grounded, and my spirit is free. There I can effortlessly live in the beauty of each moment.
— Sandy Rueve

A 13-day retreat to discover an enriched sense of self: body, mind, & spirit. As we adventure through ancient Balinese traditions, sacred sites, and modern practices (yoga, nutrition, meditation, astrology) you will be personally guided by mentors Sandy Rueve, Solomon Sikirdji, and Balinese healers.

Our intention for this retreat is for us all to clean out the "cobwebs" of our heart and soul, purify and cleanse what needs letting go of so that we can plant new seeds and fertilize them to grow in order for us to step up to truly being our highest, clearest self.  We will do many different practices to help us thru this loving process. Among them will be astrology, Yoga, some re-birthing (healing breathe of release), chanting and singing,  ecstatic dance, being in nature and, of course, diving into Balinese culture, life, and religion.

The cost of the trip is US $2,000 (airfare not included). Learn more by clicking below:
