~Chakra Stones and Jewelry

Over the course of the last few months I’ve discovered my love for Crystals and Gemstones. I always used glass beads in my creations – and I still do – but natural stones are definitely taking over. It started slow – a quartz pendant here, a few amethysts there, and now most of my necklaces are exclusively made of stones.
Of course I wanted to know more about them, not just be like ‘oohh, that’s pretty…love the color’. While the color does play a big part in my designs, I’d like to be able to tell you about their symbolism, healing properties, and  what each stone can do for you! That’s how I came to making ‘Chakra’ Necklaces.
You’ve heard of Chakra stones, and their ability to balance your life-force energies.
There are seven main chakras ~ a Sanskrit word meaning ‘Wheels of Light’ ~ in your body. I made a little visual to share with you, that explains the locations and the crystals assigned to each energy-field

Crown = Clear Quartz
Brow = Amethyst
Throat = Amazonite
Heart = Rose Quartz
Solar Plexus = Aragonite
Sacral = Carnelian
Base = Bloodstone
I thought, and hope you agree, that the colors go great together – can’t quiet my designer brain – so I started designing some necklaces and pendants. Here are the first two …

I picked the ‘OM’-sign charm because of it’s connection with the practice of yoga. Here’s a closer look

You probably know the Yoga/Chakra  therapy as meditating with the corresponding crystals on each point – at least that’s how I knew it. Now, I don’t want you to roll around on your necklace – though you can if you so desire…it’s all about relaxing and being happy! – I learned that the crystals incorporated in jewelry can also help you activate and balance individual chakras.
This is just basic information, the tip of the iceberg – if you would like to learn more about the history and tools of Chakra healing (there are  so many more helpful aides out there)  you may want to consider getting the ‘Chakra Bible’ by Patricia Mercier (not affiliated)         I found that to be the most helpful book out there.

Well, just between you and me, this was going to be a newsletter – but apparently I got a little carried away, and this turned out to be longer than intended. So…I leave the rest of my list ’til next time!
