The Meaning of Violet and Purple

Pure Light Violet is the name of the shortest lightwave visible to our eyes.  While purple refers to the color made by mixing blue and red, violet is the color of pure light.  For purposes of this blog, I will use violet and purple interchangeably as their essence and vibrations are so similar. From pale lavender to deep purple, the realm of violet connects us to the spiritual plane located...

Iolite and Intuition

There is more to iolite than meets the eye. While we see the world with our two eyes, we see ourselves through our invisible third eye, located in the center of the forehead.  Qualities associated with the third eye chakra include the sense of intuition, mystery, telepathic ability, dreams and imagination.  It is as much about what you see as what you don't see, but know is there. Iolite, also...

ART and Your Throat Chakra

 WHAT IS ART? Artists are those of us who are driven to express the way we see life.  Whether it is through writing, speaking, music, dance, the visual arts, performing arts, culinary arts or any other creative endeavor, we all benefit from expressing our feelings. Something new I'm seeing in stores this year are adult coloring books.  I think it's a wonderful idea.  So many of us get hung up on...

Is One Stone Enough?

How Many Stones? After many years of collecting gemstones for Chakra Jewel, one would think I might have at least 100 pendants to wear, but the truth is, I kept only a few for myself.  Then a friend who has purchased dozens of Chakra Jewels from me asked why I was being so stingy with myself and I had no good answer.  It's not unlike the cobbler who's children have...

Heart Chakra Stones

A Heart Chakra Story Ten and a half years ago a puppy came into my life.  From the start, he was a big boy.  It took both arms to hold him at 8 weeks.  He gave new meaning to the expression, "big boned".  Each week he gained 5 pounds and that continued for 9 months until he topped out at 140 lbs.  We named him Phillip the Tank, and had...

Seven Rings Necklace

BEST SELLING NECKLACE Our signature necklace consists of 7 handmade sterling silver rings that float freely on a designer sterling chain. This is our best selling necklace and perhaps we can attribute that to it's clean, contemporary look that goes well by itself or when paired with other necklaces.  All of us that work at Chakra Jewel wear a signature necklace on a regular basis and then add a longer necklace...

Dwan Light Sanctuary

Where Science and Spirit Meet I have always loved rainbows.  The movie, Pollyanna, staring Haley Mills, featured a scene of a bedridden woman whose bedroom was filled with rainbows thanks to the crystals taken off her chandelier and strung across the windows.  Each day at the same time, the whole room was filled with rainbows, and the bedridden woman eventually found her way back to a happier, healthier place.  It...

Healing Chakras With Light

Light waves and Chakras Some years ago, I herniated a disc in my lower back.  I was given a prescription medication for pain, but the side effects were so severe I could not take it.  I ended up trying acupuncture, which made me feel  uncommunicative and very withdrawn (not my normal state).  While I didn't find the acupuncture especially helpful for my back- sorry, but I'm being honest here, my...

Boulder Jazz Fest

Boulder Colorado This summer, we decided to show our gorgeous new bracelets at the Boulder Jazz Fest over the 4th of July.  It was such a beautiful location on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, CO, and it was fun to show our newest products to all who strolled by.  If you're looking at the photo on this blog, you can see the bracelets atop the table with striped legs and gold...

Turquoise

The Great Negotiator Turquoise is the beautiful blending of blue and green.  It is the connection between the what the heart feels and the head thinks.  It is the voice of the heart and the color of the sky.  This peaceful hue creates balance and compromise and is sometimes referred to as the color of negotiation because it is the coming together of two colors to make a third.  It relates...

Real People

DID YOU KNOW. . . Our models are our customers.  We are hoping to create collages of people wearing their Chakra Jewels because it's fun to model something that you love and it's especially fun for us to see people wearing the jewels we so lovingly make. It's been said that you don't choose the stone, rather, it chooses you.  I've noticed this many times, especially when we are selling at a show.  It's very...

Taxes Take A Toll

Tax Day Ruminations     Taxes. Mention the word and there is a collective groan from everyone in the room.  Now that tax day has come again, I wanted to post something about this yearly event.   Firstly, the relief of getting it over with is enormous.  As a right-brained artist, keeping track of all the dollars in my life is a dreadful burden. Paying my taxes is nothing compared to...

The Meaning of Orange

More Orange Please! Orange is the combination of red and yellow.  While red is rooted in passion and survival, and brilliant yellow floods us with confidence, orange is the color of happy.  Stimulated by this color both physically and mentally, we respond by becoming more extroverted, upbeat, spontaneous and creative when we're around it.  Not only that, but orange makes us hungry.  Restaurants often employ orange somewhere in their color scheme...

Cartier

Diamonds anyone? So, when the Denver Art Museum brought the Cartier Jewelry Show to town, I HAD to go...twice!  The installation took place in darkened rooms with black walls.  The glass cases on the walls were lit up to reveal the most lavish, opulent and exquisite display of diamonds I have ever seen.   Aside from the jewels themselves, I was most interested in the work room and mock studio...

Chakras - A Road Map To Emotions

A Pathway to Understanding Emotions Chakras are all about our emotions.  Consider how often things are said in the heat of anger or the passion of love.  How often do we find ourselves feeling all mixed up, or at a crossroads in our lives where we are in conflict as to the best resolution?   Making Order From Chaos Chakras give us a way to organize our emotions.  The first chakra...

Spring Gem Show 2015

TUCSON, AZ Due to a family emergency, I did not attend the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show this year.  It was the first time in 12 years that I have not gone.  I've been having dreams about the stones all week and deeply missed going, however. . . Here's the good news!  The emergency has passed, leaving everyone well once again, AND, there is a gem show that comes to Denver in...

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 Jewelry Is 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 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 sense of joy at the experience of wearing the...

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...

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...
