Baroque with a Twist?
Hi everyone! I have been madly working up designs between custom orders and I would like to share "Baroque" with you.
This lovely necklace features a focal stone in a rectangle of Kyanite that is accented with freshwater pearls, garnets and then turquoise for a bit of a twist.
Kyanite: Some say Kyanite enhances creativity, broadens perspectives, and helps achieve mutual understanding.
Turquoise: Sacred to both Native American and Oriental traditions, this stone helps to connect with spirit and brings the energy of the sky down to earth. It is helpful in expanding awareness while still maintaining practicality. Turquoise moves the wearer toward integration and wholeness. Used on the throat chakra, turquoise promotes communication and the ability to speak honestly, clearly and from the heart, and reminds us of our connection to Earth and Sky. Ancient lore suggests that it also protects against environmental pollutants. In ancient times, turquoise was utilized to gain wealth. Wearing turquoise can speed the healing process. Lore also has it that the stone will change color, warning when the owner is in danger.
Garnet: It is believed that if a garnet is put under a pillow it will cure depression. Garnets can be used to make a person popular and have self-esteem when worn as jewelry.
Freshwater Pearl: It is believed they produce endurance and emotional stability and are beneficial to lungs. Freshwater pearls enable one to accept great love, and stand for purity, beauty and compassion.
