Its been a week, or something like that, since I last posted to my blog. I don't know about you, but that seems TOO long! So, I've now finished my knitted bracelet and said I'd give you an insight to the spiritual properties around this unusual stone. Is it unusual? Well, it is to me. I tend to use materials that I am attracted to, be it colour, size or type. To me, this seems a natural thing to do - how could you work with materials you didn't like and create something of beauty?
It is associated with the heart of our body, related best with calmness and positivity.
I chose it because it is a very pretty stone.
It is known as a balancing stone which helps to unify the emotional, spiritual and mental aspects of ourselves. Considered to be excellent at removing obstacles to your personal growth by providing gentle release of blockages. It also has a subtle action of sending out peaceful vibes to those nearby.
Copper is known to improve blood circulation and is an excellent energy conductor; it overcomes lethargy and revitalises and sends and amplifies thoughts.
It is said to be a 'bestower of good', bringing benefit to its wearer; allowing one to recognise the barriers which are in the path of one's development. A perfect balance with unakite!
The clasp I designed to almost 'grip the wrist in a hug-like fashion'. I thought the chunky solid look of the clasp just worked well and the round beads also gave it some solidity.
OK, for those of you who read my blogs - last time I asked why I had a pasta machine hidden in my wardrobe. I think most of you, especially jewellery designers, would have known that this is because I want to design jewellery using polymer clay. I'm building up to it ... quietly.
If you are enjoying my blogs, leave comments and I'm likely to post more often!
In the meantime, keep watching - and I'll keep blogging!
