Cassie Uhl is the founder and owner of Zenned Out, a jewelry company that handcrafts jewelry with meaning and provides a community that inspires a mindful and spiritual lifestyle. Cassie grew up with a open minded, astrology obsessed grandmother and a father that would take her and her sister star gazing in the wee hours of the night. These experiences shaped Cassie and Zenned Out into what they are today by bringing spirituality and astrology into the forefront. Cassie hopes to give spiritual souls a place to feel at home on the Zenned Out blog and offers handcrafted jewelry with meaningful symbols, powerful gemstones, and mindful quotes to enable people to wear jewelry that aligns with their souls purpose.

You know, many people bemoan the sweltering heat and blazing sunshine that consumes the Phoenix Valley during the summer but as an Indiana native, I will gladly deal with 100+ temps for a couple months to avoid bitter cold snowstorms! They say, after all, it is a dry heat. 🙂 To avoid sunburns and ward off heat exhaustion, you will find me working away in the new air-conditioned Zenned Out Studio and searching for fun items on Etsy! The Arizona desert is truly a beautiful place and I found a few little gems that make me smile about life in... Continue Reading

These words encourage me to be intentional in my actions, engage meaningfully with others and be present in my experiences. No matter where the day takes you,... Continue Reading
