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!

Stone: SMOKEY QUARTZ June 18 2014, 0 Comments
Smokey Quartz is a root chakra stone, and wonderful for those times in our lives when we really want to move forward, to fuel our motivation and empower our projects & goals. It helps release the obstacles within our being like old programs that no longer serve us and limited thought patterns we subconsciously picked up along the way.
It is also a very protective & grounding stone, and can shield us from negative energies. It can even transform those darker energies into positivity & light.
Emotionally, Smokey Quartz is excellent for elevating moods and relieving depression, stress, fear, and anger. It is very comforting and calming, and can be considered a stone of serenity. Using it during meditation helps access higher states of consciousness. It is also a great crystal to stimulate kundalini.
On a more practical note, Smokey Quartz has a beautiful, earthy and neutral color so it can be accessorized easily and therefore worn often.

Stone: PERIDOT May 06 2014, 0 Comments
I love this gemstone so much. Green has always been such a soothing, comforting and grounding color for me, feeling like trees, plants & nature. So vibrant and full of life.
This gorgeous stone is a great companion during periods of change and growth, and perfect for transition. It helps strengthen our sense of self and teaches us to hear and trust our inner voice of intuition. It clears our channels so we can receive guidance.
I'm selling a lot of Peridot pieces these days, which has me working with the stone almost every day. Definitely not a coincidence, as I'm in the middle of a big transition myself...
Stones are amazing! And SO beautiful.

Stone: CHERRY QUARTZ April 25 2014, 0 Comments
This is the sister-stone of the well known Rose Quartz; a darker, more vibrant version of it. But it carries the same gentle, nurturing energy and is filled with love vibration. It is a powerful gem to soften and open the heart, and is particularly effective at promoting self-love.
A wonderful choice for wedding jewelry if the color calls to you (and matches your theme!) as it encourages the flow of love between its wearer and those around her.
I also recommend this gem for children. The young hearts are in their natural, open state and this stone aids in maintaining that openness through the challenges that accompany childhood (peer pressure, etc...)
Plus this warm shade of pink is so girly and fun!

Stone: MOONSTONE April 23 2014, 0 Comments
I've always found Moonstone to be quite mesmerizing with its iridescent hues of blue, purple, green and yellow. Depending on the perspective of the viewer, and how the light pours through it, Moonstone takes on a different appearance and personality. Constantly changing and flowing, just like the Feminine energy it is so full of, so connected with.
This stone has a very soothing and nurturing vibration and is therefore wonderful to wear during challenging times and stressful transitions.
It's also a perfect stone for weddings; for the brides who want to connect to their deep, powerful feminine core and be in a soft, open space to receive their groom.
Another fabulous aspect of this gemstone is that it goes with everything. So wear it often and enjoy the benefits.

Stone: CARNELIAN April 23 2014, 0 Comments
Red is one of my favorite colors, and Carnelian one of my favorite stones. Vibrant, full of life and passion, it's a happy stone that will make you want to sing & dance.
A great choice for those times in life when we're dragging our feet, feeling low energy and lacking motivation. Physically it adds a beautiful splash of vibrant color when we accessorize our outfits with it. Energetically it gives a spark of passion and ignites (or rekindles) our inner fire.
Here are several great options, from subtle to spectacular, to add a little Carnelian to your daily life: http://magdamolina.com/search?x=0&y=0&q=carnelian
Here's to living life to the fullest!
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,
