Custom Chakra Jewelry

Hello out there Just wanted to make a quick entry to thank our marvelous and talented customers.  They encourage us explore new combinations of stones and sometimes, we develop new products from their suggestions.  Recently, I got an order from a customer who was very  savvy about her stones, and after buying several chakra jewels, she began to call out combinations of stones according to what drew her in.  On one...

CHARLIE

JE SUIS CHARLIE Drawing courage from the root chakra, taking action from the core chakra, sending love from the heart chakra, speaking our truth from the throat chakra, seeing past the dogma that limits thoughts, we rise to a higher level of consciousness that disavows the senseless killings in France.  We are all Charlie.  

Why Is Jewelry Good for Chakras?

     Joyful Jewels! Today I bought myself a pair of earrings - not that I don't own at least 100 pairs - but these were not something I would have thought to make myself.  I appreciated the design and the flow in the earrings and put them on as soon as I'd paid for them.  Instantly, I noticed that people were smiling at me, maybe because I was projecting...

A Chakra New Year

    Tune into your chakras Start off this year with a simple intention - pay attention to your feelings.  You can do this by checking in with yourself at different times during the course of a day.  Let me be more specific - How about starting right now?  Take 15 - 30 seconds to do a once over from your feet to your head, checking to see where your energy...

Winter Solstice and Chakras

CELEBRATING THE SOLSTICE Congratulations!! We've made it to the Winter Solstice. The solstice is the official beginning of winter.  It the longest night and shortest day of the year.  From now until June, the days will be getting longer.  It may not be noticeable for a few weeks, but each day, the sun is shining on our part of the earth a tiny bit longer.  It begins with adding a few...

Labradorite is Back!

  Flashy Labradorite Labradorite is a tricky sort of stone.  In the right light, it displays breathtaking flashes of color, from lavender and pink to neon blues and greens.  It is like holding stone made out of the northern lights.  Wow!  What makes it tricky is that the orientation of the stone has to be exactly right to reveal the brilliant flashes of color inside.  If the stone is not cut to...

GIVING THANKS

Thanksgiving from the heart chakra. While we associate Thanksgiving with feasting, merriment and family, the spirit of Thanksgiving comes from the heart.   It is a commemoration of the kindness of Native Americans, who shared their knowledge of living off the land, sharing their food and survival skills with the starving white skinned people so woefully inept at living in nature. As we celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday, we need to remember that it...

Gong Baths And Chakras

  What is a Gong Bath? Recently, I had a dear friend who celebrated his birthday by having a gong bath.  He invited a few lucky friends to come along, and I was fortunate enough to be one of them.  I had been to a gong bath once before, and I enjoyed it much more the second time around.  If you have not heard of gong baths, I will attempt...

Chakra Jewels For The Holidays

ALWAYS CUSTOM MADE Chakra Jewels are made after the order is placed.   This allows us to consider the person who placed the order and try to communicate with them through the gems.  Quality control is really important to us.  Since we purchase our beads by the string, some stones are more exciting than others.  Rarely do we use every stone from a strand, rather, we pick the nicest material to...

CHAKRAS AND POLITICS

Politics can wreak havoc on our chakras. I've heard it over and over lately.  "If I have to listen to one more campaign ad, I'm going to throw something at the TV/radio/computer."  "I can't take it anymore!"  "Make them stop," and worst of all, "It makes me sick."  YIKES!  It seems the political landscape has turned to mud, and all of us are getting dragged through it.  Still, if you are...

A Halloween Stone

Dragon Blood Jasper The story behind Dragon Blood Jasper is one of the most interesting I've come across and perfect for Halloween.  The stone, which has a mossy yellow green background is shot with veins of deep red.  It is thought that the stone is the fossilized remains of ancient dragons.  The green is the skin of the beast, while the red veins are the blood. Oddly enough, I was...

How To Meditate With Stones

   Why Meditate? Meditation is relaxing to the point where you stop the chatter inside your head.  You know, that constant voice that streams through your brain reminding you to  pick up something for dinner, call your mother/sister/daughter/brother, son, husband, father, grandmother, friends, etc. or to check the air in your tires the next time you get gas, and on and on it goes.  To stop this endless chatter takes...

NEW STONES from the DENVER GEM SHOW

  NEW GEMSTONES include: Black Labradorite - These are wonderful large rectangular stones with good flashes of blue.  A nice combination of root and third eye chakras. Leopard Skin Jasper - This new stone shows fabulous patterns of black, gray and pinky beige.  Looks like strands of black yarn that meander across a light colored background.  Each piece has it's own unique character.  Good for root chakra. Carnelian - Very...

FABULOUS OCEAN JASPER

ie, Orbicular Jasper   This amazing stone from Mother Earth reminds me of microbes one might see under a microscope.  It is a kind of jasper and agate mix that displays a unique pattern of colored circles and dots that appear to float across a deep green background. As you can see in the photos, it's very organic and alive looking.   Found only along the northwest shoreline of Madagascar, the mine has been...

THE MANY COLORS OF JASPER

JASPER FOR FALL   As fall peeks around the corner, nature gives it her all before the frost. Leaves of green become bright red, orange and yellow, and while the spring and summer flowers have begun to fade, fall colors come with the bountiful harvest.  In celebration of Mother Nature's brilliant show of force, I've put together a group of JASPERS for fall that specifically energize the first, second and third chakras.  These chakras...

Amber for Teething

Amber Helps Teething Because. . . Succinic acid found in amber, is an all-natural anti-inflammatory and pain reliever.  If you are interested in exploring the effects of succinic acid to help your baby during painful episodes of teething, choose amber that is genuine, not reconstituted and has not been polished, since polishing destroys the outer layers.  This is where the most succinic acid is found. It is also known as raw...

Amber

Amazing Amber  With it's warm golden hue, amber is sensual, earthy and exciting.  Technically, it is not a stone, but began as tree resin more than 40 million years ago.  Oozing from the trees in ancient forests, it was transformed over a very long time into a natural plastic. (note: tree resin is not the same thing as tree sap.) Amber is amorphous, which means it has no crystalline structure...

NEW! Spiny Oyster Shell

New to our collection of gemstones is spiny oyster shell.  This shell, which is a cousin to a scallop, has long been prized, not for it's taste, but for it's colorful shell.  As is the case for all things that come from our oceans, it is getting more rare to find.  Not only that, but it is covered with thorns or spines that stick out all over the shell and...

The Meaning of White

The Interesting Duality of White In any discussion of the color white, there is a duality factor that makes it especially interesting.  When referring to white light, it is the result of all the colors in the spectrum seen at one time.  With regards to paint, white is an absence of color.  In Western cultures, black is used to signify death, but there are many cultures in the world where...

INATS 2014

Another INATS has come and gone, and as the incredible and inspirational flower arrangements are being dismantled, I feel a bit sad that it's over.  The International New Age Trade Show (INATS) is a unique coming together of exceptional people and new age products.  But it's more than that.  For four days, the Denver Mart becomes a consortium of new age thinkers, along with artists, performers, musicians, authors and healers...

The Meaning of Black

It has been said that black is the most misunderstood color.  I would have to agree.  While it is required for formal occasions, lending an air of sophistication and formality, it is also the color most worn by the bad guys in the movies.  Black is filled with the mysteries of the universe as well as being the solace of quiet meditation.  In nearly every case, it is a way...

Lapidary ~ The Art of Cutting Gemstones

Cutting Basics Before cutting a stone, the first thing I do is to look at the rock from every angle. If it is still in a rough state, I get it wet to exaggerate any external markings or patterns.  It is up to me to frame the stone in such a way as to show off it's best features. Color, clarity, surface textures or flaws that might make the stone...
