Stone: BLUE TOPAZ November 03 2014, 0 Comments
Throughout history, we have believed in metaphysical properties of stones & crystals; treasures gifted to us directly from Mother Earth.
Blue Topaz is one of my favorites, and has been around for a long time.
During the Middle Ages, it was thought to heal both physical and mental disorders and prevent death. The Greeks believed it had the power to increase strength and to make its wearer invisible, while the Romans believed it had the power to improve eyesight. The Egyptians wore it as an amulet to protect them from injuries.
It’s even mentioned in the bible, in the Book of Exodus as being one of the twelve stones in the breastplate of the ancient Hebrew High Priests. It is believed that the stones of the breastplate together with 12 powerful Angels protect the door to Heaven.
In this day and age, Blue Topaz is recognized as a soothing and calming stone that can distance us from stress and problems by raising our vibration and allowing us to rise above them. It is an excellent crystal for meditation and attuning to our higher self. It is recommended for people suffering from shock, trauma or depression and is also effective for those whose lives are filled with stress & tension.
It is also known as a communication stone, helping us to express ourselves in a clearer, more meaningful way, both when speaking & writing.
Blue Topaz promotes self-realization & forgiveness, and assists us in seeing where we have strayed from our own truth. It connects us to our inner wisdom and aids in problem solving (or sorting out muddled feelings & ideas). It helps shine light on our true feelings, fully honor them, and then let go of the ones that no longer serve us (like anger and resentment).
A wonderful stone for artists and for those wanting to get in touch with their artistic abilities. It enhances creativity and increases one’s appreciation of beauty.
It is a great stone for aligning the meridians and bringing body, mind and spirit into union. It also balances emotions and directs energy to the areas that need it most in the moment.
It helps us stay open and receptive, making it a powerful crystal to manifest wealth and prosperity.
Physically it is effective with blood disorders, endocrine problems, thrombosis and asthma. It also fortifies the nerves, stimulates the metabolism and promotes rejuvenation of the cells.

Stone: TURQUOISE July 29 2014, 0 Comments
Turquoise has been used for thousands of years, and is one of the oldest stones to be made into jewelry; the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. Many honored Turquoise as the universal stone, believing their minds would become one with the Universe when wearing it.
It has impressive metaphysical properties and is a powerful healing stone. Used a lot for protection and purification as it dispels negative energies and transmutes them. It can be worn to shield against outside influences and even pollutants in the atmosphere.
It is also a symbol of friendship.
Turquoise has a strong effect on the throat chakra and therefore promotes clear & truthful communication. A great leadership stone that helps balance the male and female aspects of our being, encourages self-realization and assists in creative problem solving.
It helps align all the chakras, stabilizing emotions and instilling inner peace. It is an excellent stone for depression and exhaustion. Physically, it enhances the immune system and stimulates the regeneration of tissue.
On a more superficial note... it's just a really beautiful & colorful stone! It adds a joyful and soothing touch to all outfits. Wear it with other bright colors and neutral ones alike, and have fun!

Welcome to my blog! April 23 2014, 0 Comments
Welcome to my blog!
I've been resisting this whole "blog" thing for a long time even though it kept pulling at me gently, calling me softly... Until the call became anything but soft and the pull far from gentle. So here I am. Blogging.
Communicating & sharing has always been a very important aspect of who I am, ever since I started speaking. And writing has been an significant communication tool ever since I learned the alphabet many years ago. Letters, cards, notes, stories, and later emails texts and social media posts... and now blogging.
This will be a space for me to share thoughts, ideas and feelings about all kinds of topics. Jewelry, stones, femininity and fashion will definitely be a part of it, but I also want this to be a place to share about life in general. Love and fear, triumphs and challenges; the whole spectrum in all its glory.
And I want this to be a two way street. I want to hear from you, so please feel free to share your own thoughts, ideas and feelings on all the various subjects I will present here.
Thank you for being a part of my journey.
With love & gratitude,
