This gorgeous SILVER LININGS necklace was created as my re-entry into beading after a two- or three-year hiatus. Life got busier, the space where I had enjoyed working got more crowded, and I lost touch with it all. Recently, I created a new meditative studio space that is perfect for this work, better than ever in fact, and I'm once again inspired and excited to begin creating again! As I began working on SILVER LININGS, my excitement grew and I am so happy to be "back in the groove."

SILVER LININGS features a splendid pendant of Silver Jasper, with beads of black and white Magnesite, Gray Marble and smoky Swarovski Crystal and chips of creamy Moonstone and luminous Labradorite, with silvery spiral accents and glass seed beads. It is 18" long (excluding the pendant) and closes with a silverplated magnetic clasp.

What I was burning as I worked on this piece: Tibetan "Refuge" incense
What I was listening to: The Sirius XM "Spa" station!

ABOUT THE STONES:

SILVER JASPER: Nurturing, Protection

Jasper is strongly connected with the energies of the earth, and helps its wearer find stability and balance. It boosts the immune system and assists in extracting pollutants and toxins from the body. It is said to provide protection against negativity and to align the chakras. Jasper is often used to soothe the stomach and nerves and as a general body tonic. It works slowly and is most effective when used over a long period of time. With patience, anyone using Jasper will feel a continuity of spirit and body that can vastly improve both work and play.

MAGNESITE: Calming, Imagination



Magnesite is known for its calming properties, and helps to improve creative visualization and imagination. It is also commonly believed to bring deep peace and silent relaxation during meditation, stimulate passion in the heart and help strengthen bones and teeth.

MARBLE: Clarity, Dream recall

Marble is a crystalline stone, created deep within the earth millions of years ago. Each piece of marble is like a snowflake - no two pieces are ever exactly the same. Marble is used in tantric activities and to help with clarity during meditative states. It’s also been used for recalling dreams. Marble is thought to help with serenity and mastery, and actualization of ones thoughts.

SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL: Purifying, Balance
 
Swarovski Austrian Crystal is full lead crystal, considered to be among the finest in the world. It is made by combining quartz, sand, soda, potash and lead oxide, and heating it to 1500 degrees Celsius. It carries many of the same qualities as Quartz Crystal, amplifying the qualities of other stones it is worn with, and attuning them even more to your particular energy. Quartz acts as a purifier, creating harmony and helping to balance all stimuli, positive and negative.

LABRADORITE: Magic, Protection, Self-knowledge
 
Labradorite is a stone of magic, and it awakens in those who wear or carry it an awareness of one’s innate magical powers. It offers one the chance to embark on a journey of self-discovery, and helps one move toward self-mastery rather than control of others. Labradorite brings clarity and helps purge negative thought patterns. It lends insight and vision and allows one to communicate these gifts in a beneficial way. This stone facilitates transformation on all levels and allows for easy changes to take place, making it especially good for those who fear change. Labradorite brings out the best qualities in its wearer, and is a powerful stone in building self-esteem. It enhances faith and self-reliance, and may help one to realize one's destiny. Physically, it is a healing stone that can strengthen the immune system, and has been used in the treatment of disorders of the brain. It can improve digestion and metabolism and encourage restful sleep.

MOONSTONE: Calming, Protection, Love, Connection with plants
 
Moonstone helps to cool, soothe and calm our emotions, and is associated with intuition, sensitivity and the feminine aspect of our nature. It enhances balance and introspection, and possesses reflective lunar energies that relate to new beginnings. It can help one focus on what's needed rather than what's wanted. Moonstone is believed to enhance psychic abilities. A gently protective stone, it is worn as a charm when traveling on or over the water. It can attract love, heal rifts between lovers and ensure restful sleep. As a healing stone, moonstone helps all parts of the lower torso, including digestive, cleansing and reproductive organs. If worn while gardening, it can help your plants and flowers to grow strong and healthy.



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).
