Our Story & Philosophy | Botanical Stone Skip to main content

''I started casting because I wanted to bring the plant worlds wisdom back into the light. I wanted to be able to share the wonder and the magick that plants have to offer... to incorporate them into these beautiful, carefully made jewels.''

  ‘’When I started Botanical Stone (then Coyote Stone) in 2015, it was as a creative outlet for my self-directed learning in silversmithing. At that time, I was making a lot of chunky turquoise rings and statement pieces that were very, very raw.

As my style changed, my love of plants only grew and while studying herbal medicine, I became fascinated with the thought of encapsulating a plants energy and geometry into metal- birthing beautiful, wearable works of art- and from there I got into casting’’

It took over a year of inspiration, patience and persistence to learn the intricate art of molding natural botanicals. Starting with the protective White Sage leaf, what followed was a small specially picked collection of Australian plant species and medicinal herbs, all being incorporated into these special designs. 
‘’It was really exciting to bring together my two passions; plants and crystals- and to be able to share what I have spent so much of my life learning.’’

After the birth of her 4th child, and after many years hand-making each and every piece herself, Jess started working with a small team of skilled artisans that have been helping to bring her designs to life ever since.


''I hope that when you wear these jewels, there is a part of you that gets reactivated... a remembrance or a re-knowing... a sweet whisper that invites these plants to reconnect to you- and you, with them. To carry a plants energy in this way is something... beautiful and special!'

- Jess Rowlands,
maker of all things beautiful, and believer in all things magic.


𓋺 Our philosophy 𓋺

The world we live in today is a culmination of the timeless wisdom and magick that has been woven through the very fibres of this Earth; through threads and seeds planted millennia ago from a long lineage of ancestors who roamed this earth so long before us.
The plant world taught us many things and amongst its most powerful, it taught us that we are purely reflections of them, and that by connecting with an open heart, we are able to attune ourselves to the many different degrees of healing that they can offer us.
Over eons we have looked to the plant world for guidance, to nourish us in times of healing, and for protection…. to look after us as we look after them. Our spiritual connection to plants has led us to incorporate them into ritual and prayer, weaving the energies of plants into the creation of who we are.
Sadly, many of us today have forgotten the beautiful healing that plants avail to us- pulling them apart into separation, seeing only individual phyto-chemicals and constituents- forgetting that within a single plant there holds the planets, the elements and the potential for healing on a level that a single pharmacological compound could never even try to replicate, nor possibly extract.
It is our philosophy that wo/man’s relationship to the Earth is one of the most significant factors contributing to a wholesome life and a sustainable planet. By focusing on small batch botanicals, while offering wisdom and learnings about their meanings and magick, we hope to inspire an even greater respect and love for the plant world around us. 

𓋺 Our Ethical standards 𓋺

It is very important to us here at Botanical Stone to keep our practices as sustainable as possible, and we have made an effort to seek positive solutions in every aspect of our business. We continue to seek better alternatives and it is our ultimate goal to be a carbon positive business.    

We work with a beautiful fair trade manufacturer who treats their employees respectfully, paying them well and offering both health insurance and maternity leave.  

Wherever possible, our stones are purchased from small family owned mines so we know exactly where they are coming from.  

We keep our business practices as plastic free as possible by using compostable and recycled paper packaging and have partnered with Onetreeplanted.org to plant a tree with every sale- focusing on Australian projects that are rehabilitating areas devastated by recent bushfires.

This is a project that is close to our heart and we are beyond grateful to work alongside an organisation that is doing such incredible work.
