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
I love it when my Yoga Practice inspires a necklaces design. The other day I was practicing some Heart Opening Yoga poses. I was moving into a pose called “the Camel”. Reaching back to touch my feet, I could feel the stretch in my body and spontaneous began to focus on the healing energies of pink and green Tourmaline.
When my yoga practice was finished I went into my bead studio and found a stunning Tourmaline Pendant. It had both the green and pink Tourmaline stones. Next I found a strand of faceted multi-color Tourmalines to string the heart opening pendant onto. Both pink and green Tourmaline are known as Heart Chakra Stones. Tourmaline has a soothing energy for the heart and can facilitate forgiveness and emotional healing.
It’s natural to put up a protective shield around our Heart Chakra to avoid pain from loss. >> Continue reading
As 2010 begins, it’s time to re-commit to our spiritual practices. For me that is Yoga and Meditation. I find it very helpful to use the OM symbol to remind me that I am renewing my connection to “the practice”
The ancient symbol OM holds an important significance for me and helps me acknowledge my practice. By wearing OM jewelry and OM pendants, I am reminded to stay in the present moment. I remember to connect to my breath. Wearing OM jewelry allows me to stop and reflect throughout the day. As I see the OM pendant around my neck, I pause, take in a deep breath and connect to the NOW. I use my OM necklaces as tools to support my inner spiritual practice.
I enjoy making jewelry with the sacred OM symbol, combining OM pendants with healing gemstones that also assist to inspire a Yoga or Meditation practice. I am always on the look out for unique and unusual OM pendants to add to my Yoga jewelry line. Creating these Yoga inspired jewelry pieces can be very meditative. >> Continue reading
Shamanite is a rare Black Calcite from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I was first introduced to Shamanite by my friend Charlie Mark from Florida of Mountain Mark Trading. Charlie is the world distributor for North American Black Calcite now known as Shamanite. I have been buying stones from Charlie for more than 16 years. Charlie is a distributor for the beautiful blue gemstone Larimar. So when Charlie contacted me that he would be selling the Shamanite at this years Denver Gem & Mineral show, I made sure I visited his booth and purchased a few rough polished pieces he had for sale.
Shamanite was recently discovered (2005) on privately-owned remote alpine property in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. After a year of geological research, this is now the only known deposit throughout the entire Rocky Mountain range and North America. >> Continue reading
As I unpack all the wonderful gems, crystals and beads I purchased at the trade show this past weekend, new jewelry designs flow through my head. I’ve been wanting to add some new designs to the Yoga jewelry line. Now I have some incredible new beads and pendants to work with.
Its always so much fun to bring these gifts from Mother Earth home. I can now take my time, look over these semi-precious jewels, feel their energies and put them into healing jewelry designs.
I also purchased some stones brand new to my healing gemstone collection. These will be introduced at my next crystal and gemstone class.
I stocked up on more Selenite wands. These are so smooth to the touch. I enjoy holding them because they can melt away any negativity I am carrying around. Not only did I find Selenite wands, I purchased Selenite in its many different forms. >> Continue reading
