Collaborations

Edmonton and it’s surrounding area is full of so many talented makers. I am forever impressed, in awe and inspired by what people can create.

Recently I was asked to collaborate with Kimberly and Jenn Mah of My Sunshine Creations Inc. Being able to share and come together with other makers is so rewarding and I am super excited to have my art be a part of their children’s clothing line.

Mixed Media Art on Canvas


I know that I am the happiest when I am traveling but unfortunately I need to make the big bucks (or small bucks) and can’t travel all year round. I have tried to make changes in my life over the past few years to help make my life at home become more fulfilling. I found that  upon my return from trips I would soon sink into a funk, so in 2016 I decided to  grab life by the balls and sail right past ‘Funk Island’. By doing so I have tried to tap into my creative side. This is where my art comes in…

Although I have been artistic most of my life, I am relatively new to the art world. My favorite forms of art are both mixed media and pen and ink. I love how mixed media can take the best qualities from all art forms by bringing in colour, texture, and real images into one piece. And on the opposite spectrum, I enjoy the simplicity of pen and ink.

Since I started The Urban Gypsy I have been asked to create custom pieces as well as sell some of my art at local markets. Check out my pieces that I currently have for sale and if anything interests you, drop me a line.

Mala Necklaces & Bracelets

monk

Having seen MALA BEADS worn in many places around the world I have been inspired to create them as well. They were first introduced over 3000 years ago in India and have roots in Hinduism and Buddhism. The term ‘MALA’ is a Sanskrit work for ‘meditation garland’, and these beads were used for a special type of meditation where a mantra would be repeated 108 times.

Although I may not use my MALA for religious meditation, I truly believe that the beads are more than just an accessory. They encourage us to pause, breathe and realign ourselves with our deepest intentions. They motivate us to invest in moments of self-care and compassion. They are our physical, spiritual forget-me-nots.

My one-of-a-kind MALA necklaces are all made with semi-precious stones from around the world and I string the beads with 100% natural silk thread. Semi-precious stones have healing qualities and for thousands of years ancient civilizations have utilized the power from the stones and their energies.

Give a MALA as a gift to a loved one or for yourself as a physical reminder to manifest and achieve your goals. Payment is quick and easy through Paypal and I can have the beads shipped to your front door. Just sent me an email and you are a click away from owning a MALA yourself. (heathernhalpern@gmail.com)

  INTENTION SETTING

What are your dreams?

What are your goals?

                    Take a minute. Think about it. Get intentional.
