Rimbey entrepreneur invited to Emmy Celebrities Gift Suites

Stars check out jewelery and trees of life

By Treena Mielke

The creative genius of a young Rimbey entrepreneur has caught the attention of the stars and now it seems the sky is the limit for the quiet soft-spoken woman.

Angela Wieshlow, who creates jewellery and healing trees of life with gemstones, recently returned from Los Angeles where she and business partner, Santana Friesen were invited to attend the Emmy Celebrities Gift Suites.

As an invited vendor, she was allowed to display her products at the Women’s Club of Hollywood the Saturday before the Emmy Awards. She also gave out 120 jute bags containing gemstone bracelets to the celebrities.

“Each bracelet had a different meaning and we let them pick their own bag at random,” she said.

The experience gave Wieshlow an opportunity to show off her wares and, in the process, meet some interesting and exciting television personalities.

“It’s been a whirlwind of really cool stuff,” said Wieshlow. “I can’t believe it all just really happened.”

In search of pursuing her own creative interests, Wieshlow began working with gemstones just over three years ago and created her own company, Four of Fires. Her work began to sell immediately and soon she found herself going to different markets as well as selling her product online.

Creating unique and special healing trees and bracelets and meditation beads is very satisfying for Wieshlow.

“It’s a passion and a way to channel emotions in a positive way,” she said.

She and her business partner operate and own The Pink Bead Shop in Red Deer and crystal gemstone healing trees and jewellery are also available at Game On in Rimbey and The Soul Centre in Red Deer.

Since returning from Los Angeles she has learned she has been invited to do a showing of her jewellery and trees of life for celebrities attending the Oscars.

“Good things will happen when you put positive vibes out there,” she said.
