The heat of summer can take its toll, leaving us frazzled, moody and irritable. There is a fabulous gemstone remedy that offers a cooling, calming energy to rejuvenate us during the hot summer months, it’s Flourite.
Flourite is my go to stone when it comes to beating the heat. Flourite comes in several shades of cooling green colors and soothing purple tones. Purple Flourite is often mistaken for Amethyst. Flourite even comes in shades of yellow and blue. When these colors combine it is known as Rainbow Flourite.
Flourite feels so cooling to the touch, that just holding a piece can help you cool down.
Flourite is known as the “ Cool, Calm, Collected Stone” for it’s ability to help you come back to center when life tries to push you around and tempers rise.
So, remain cool, calm and come back to your center this summer both internally & externally with the many colors of Flourite. >> Continue reading
In an economy where just a few dollars can make the difference in a purchase, I’m looking into ways to keep the prices of my jewelry affordable. The cost of sterling silver is rising each day. I’ve always used sterling in my jewelry designs, but now I’m faced with the reality that the current silver prices will effect the cost of my jewelry. I have to raise prices as my costs continue rise.
The good news is, I’ am exploring different options in metals. I’ve recently been using more copper in my designs. This lead to a search on the healing benefits of copper. More good news, copper is a very beneficial metal to wear for healing. Copper has long been used for its healing properties.
Historically copper has been used by humans dating back nearly 10,000 years. It was found that copper was even used in Pre-Columbian America in the area of the Middle East. Metal workers crafted bells, ornaments, weapons, beads, earrings and armor. >> Continue reading
When I think of one stone that represents the feelings of summer its Larimar. Larimar is the quintessential summer gemstone. Remember those times when you were a kid, with nothing to do on a hot summer’s day? You’d lay on the freshly mowed lawn and look up at the sky. Hours could pass as you watched the clouds roll by, imagining the puffy white shapes to be all sorts of creatures. There you are without a care in the world, no concerns about time, just being, in the present moment. That’s the vibrational quality of Larimar.
Larimar is a stone of peaceful tranquility. Its a very soothing and serene stone. Larimar’s energy is calming. It can help reduce excessive fear or anger with its cooling energies. Relaxation is one of the benefits of Larimar. If you can’t go lay in the hammock with a good book and tall glass of ice tea this summer, try holding a piece of Larimar for the same soothing relief.
I’ve been making Chakra Jewelry since 1994. Over these many years, I’ve often been asked “How do I choose a Chakra Bracelet. How do I know which one I need? Which one is best for me?”
Sometimes the answer is our Chakra Stones bracelet. This bracelet covers all the Chakras and helps balance each energy center. But, often if we just take a minute to tune into ourselves, by going inwards, to our center, taking a few deep breaths, we can discern for ourselves which Chakra is calling out for balancing.
If you feel drawn to a particular color this can be an indication. Are you finding yourself wearing more blues or greens? Do you go to your clothes closet pick out a piece of clothing, only to put it back and choose something totally different than what you had planned?
The New Year offers us a chance to bring our dreams, desires and wishes into our lives. But sometimes we run into problems manifesting new year intentions because we first have to move around the obstacles standing in the way. Those obstacles can often be our emotions or thought patterns. If we take our old automatic responses with us into the year will anything really change? The first few weeks of the New Year offer us a wonderful opportunity to examine the thoughts that are holding us back from achieving what we are wishing for. Take a close look at the obstacles that stand in you way. What behavior or thought is preventing you from achieving the things you desire?
I find calling on Ganesh the Hindu elephant-headed god can help me move forward around the obstacles or hindrances in my life. Ganesh ( Ganesha. Ganeshe) is the Lord of successes and the destroyer of evils and obstacles.
I love it when a walk in nature inspires a creative jewelry idea.
I try to get outside everyday for a walk in the sunshine. My little Jack Russell Terrier is a good excuse to get outdoors and get some exercise. She enjoys her freedom off leash roaming in the woods and I enjoy some quiet time in nature.About a month ago I was taking a walk in the woods with my dog near my summer home in southwest Colorado. I was on a familiar trail, one I often take. I don’t know what is was that particular day, that caused me to focus on the magnificent Ponderosa fir trees. I stood in front of these tall, straight, solid sentinels and felt such appreciation for their majestic beauty. As I walked along feeling grateful for the day and these beautiful trees, I begin to imagine which gemstones these trees represented to me.
Of all the different gemstones I have worked with over the past 20 years, Moldavite is the one that has shown me the most dramatic responses from those who hold it. I have witness many first time encounters with Moldavite. What I have noticed when someone is new to the energies of Moldavite is a strong reaction to the stone. Sometimes to the point of the person throwing the stone down as if they can no longer be near its vibration. Sometimes the opposite happens and a person can not let go of the stone because it feels so good, so familiar. Rarely is there no response from Moldavite. One of the more common responses from someone who holds Moldavite for the first time is the experience of warmth or heat, usually felt in the hand then felt throughout the body like a wave. >> Continue reading
