Solar Quartz, Tanzanite, Peridot, Amethyst, Tourmalinated Quartz, Prehnite

I created this one of a kind PAPILLON necklace around an amazing pendant of Solar Quartz set in .925 Sterling Silver. It's pattern and colorful shading reminds me of a butterfly's wing.

To complement the pendant, I used beads of dramatic Tourmalinated Quartz, large multi-faceted beads of pale lavender Amethyst, tiny chips of violet Tanzanite, tiny beads of brilliant green Peridot, and both beads and chunky raw nuggets of gorgeous light green Prehnite, all interspersed with silvered glass Japanese seed beads and accented with Sterling Silver spacers. It closes with a simple silver hook and eye clasp.

PAPILLON is approximately 20" long, excluding the pendant.


ABOUT THE STONES...

SOLAR QUARTZ - Protection, harmony, energy

Solar Quartz is a natural agatized quartz that is sliced from stalactites in clear, white or gray, with mossy inclusions. It is often dyed in brilliant colors. As with all quartz it is an energy enhancer, connecting to spirit and harmony. Solar Quartz is said to bring emotional strength and uplift one with great power and energy. Solar Quartz has all the properties of clear quartz and is protective, purifying on spiritual, mental and physical levels, used to communicate with spirits and more. Solar Quartz is associated with the crown chakra, but also works well on all chakras.


TOURMALINATED QUARTZ - Balance; protection

Tourmalinated quartz combines the qualities of tourmaline with the qualities of quartz crystal. Black Tourmaline (Schorl) purifies ones own energies and protects from negativity, while quartz crystal amplifies energies focused through it. This combination makes Tourmalinated Quartz a powerful shield-stone that depending on the desired intent of the wearer can amplify and return negative energy like a mirror spell or can convert the negative energy into positive energy for the wearer. It is also thought to aids in eliminating patterns, which are, or may have been destructive in ones own life. This combination balances yin/yang energies, aids in adjusting imbalances throughout the body, repels and protects against negativity, and protects one from being victimized by the negative energies of others. It enhances ones physical well being by providing an increase in physical vitality, emotional stability, and intellectual acuity.


AMETHYST - Protection, purification, Divine connection, release of addictions

Amethyst grants freedom from everyday concerns, brings faithfulness in love and bestows the gift of prescience. Few stones offer as much potential benefit to the mind as Amethyst. It soothes the nervous system, aids in the transmission of neural signals and helps us feel less scattered and more in control, allowing us to balance excessive emotional highs and lows. It is useful in dispelling rage, anger, fear and anxiety, and is a good stone for clarifying and remembering dreams. It also helps relieve physical and emotional pain and overcome addictions.


TANZANITE - Tanzanite: Relaxation; balance; harmony; insight; dispels negativity

Tanzanite is sometimes called the "workaholic's stone," because it will help you slow down and take it easy. This in turn will bring success in more areas of your life. It is very balancing for highly active people, mellowing out extremes in personality. Tanzanite relieves stress and enhances composure, poise and harmony. It helps us to understand why things are happening in life. Tanzanite facilitates spiritual awareness and stimulates insight. It is also said to relieve depression and dispel negativity.


PERIDOT - Prosperity; well-being

Peridot is full of positive power. It bolsters optimism, lends inner strength and stabilizes emotions. It is known to be a visionary stone, helping us to connect with our destinies and to find spiritual truth and an understanding of the purpose of existence. Peridot is used to attract love as well as to calm raging anger. It may help one in understanding and accepting change, and in recognizing harmful patterns that may be detrimental to one’s growth. Peridot may be used to cleanse and stimulate the heart and solar plexus chakras, encouraging openness and acceptance with regard to relationships. It helps regulate one's life cycles: physical, mental, emotional, and intellectual, and can lessen anger or jealousy by inspiring greater happiness within the self. Peridot is considered to be a strong healing stone, and may act as a general tonic for strengthening and regenerating the body. It may be especially beneficial to the heart, lungs, spleen, liver, and intestinal tract.


PREHNITE - Inner peace; communication with non-physical beings

Prehnite is a very protective stone and can protect one on all levels. It links the heart and the will, giving one the resolve to “follow one’s heart.” It strengthens the life force and generally increases and stimulates energy. It aids spirit communication through meditation or visualization, out-of-body travel, and is a powerful dream stone. Prehnite is also known as a stone of prophesy which stimulates inner-knowing. Physically, Prehnite is helpful in the healing of gout, anemia, and kidney problems. It helps balance and heal the circulatory and lymphatic systems.


STERLING SILVER - Balance; intellect

Sterling Silver is a metal in tune with the energies of the body. It is especially beneficial to the brain, because it improves the transmission of nerve impulses and improves memory. It helps to balance the functions of both sides of the brain and enhances ones ability to approach intellectual problems.


MY PROCESS ...

In creating any necklace, I first select a focal piece, and then choose the various stones to complete it through an instinctive (and fun!) process. After lighting some incense and putting on some music that suits my mood that day (new age, world music, nature sounds, classical or soft jazz), I hold the pendant or focal stone in my hand as I look over ALL of the hundreds of types of stone beads in my collection, and choose several (way more than what will eventually be included - usually 20 or more types) that look and feel "right." Next, I narrow things down by repeating the process among the beads I first selected, and place handfuls of about a dozen different types in the old African Mancala game board I use as my beading palette. I then choose complementary glass seed beads (often used as spacers) and a clasp, and begin beading - entirely by instinct. Often, I will get to a certain point and begin over again, until the necklace that is meant to be reveals itself. Sometimes, I find that a stone I hadn't originally chosen is screaming to be included, and I always honor that. Not all of the stones in the final palette are used, and usually the piece turns out entirely differently than what I had originally envisioned. It is a process that feeds my soul. I am inspired by the colors and textures of the materials I work with, and by my spirit guides (all animals! - see my profile), as well as by the constant presence when I'm beading of my two beloved rescued dogs (O'Keeffe and Teddy) and a giant rescued Maine Coon cat named Sassafras, who rules the roost. All three love to be a part of the process.
