Very few of us have truly simple lives anymore. For most of us, our lives have many strands that we juggle and are attempting to weave together. Each of us has a purpose, a focus for our lives. The level of awareness and understanding of that purpose is different for each of us. To fulfill that purpose, we cannot do it alone. It requires individuals be woven into a circle of community that support each other to create lives of wholeness and beauty.

And so I offer these necklaces. Each one can be seen as a representation of a life. Five cords made of many fine threads, braided together with 30 supporting beads, one focus bead or stone, with the ends interwoven to form a circle. Thirty six is two times eighteen which is the numerical value of the Hebrew word chai which means life. One can also look at them as representing double life, the life of an individual and the life of their community.

So if you are drawn to one of these necklaces, perhaps it will help you to find or see your purpose and how you are woven into life and your community. Or simply enjoy wearing it as an beautiful piece of jewelry.

This necklace coordinates with earrings BE-45-2. http://www.etsy.com/listing/70328215
