Ruth Hamilton, MA Ed., Expressive Arts Counselor, workshop leader and jewelry designer, guides you in experiencing the healing arts. Expressive Arts for Healing is the practice of integrating imagery, visual arts, dance, music, sound, humor, and poetry to encourage creativity and healing and to transform stress-producing emotions. Ruth’s jewelry is an out-growth of her love of gems and precious metals.
Ruth Hamilton received her training at the Expressive Arts Institute, Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island. She is a certified Technology for Creating facilitator. Ruth also studied curative water coloring techniques at Rudolph Steiner University, Sacramento, CA.
Ruth lives in the high desert near Magdalena, NM where she collects gems and rocks on her hikes. Each piece of jewelry art expresses a healing combination of colors, gem stones, and precious metals. Ruth also welcomes private sessions that allow you to choose stones and designs that you find healing and uplifting.
As a nature activist, Ruth is helping to protect the beautiful Bear Mountains, shown above, from encroaching militarization. Please visit: www.nmbearmountains.blogspot.com. She also filmed local residents who are impacted by on-going military training. You can watch this film and leave a comment.
