I received this bracelet way faster than I thought, and it is quite beautiful! The iolite not only sparkles but the blue and purple tones are also enchanting and have good color. The beads and silver toggle are also charming. As a plus side, it is a perfect fit for my tiny wrist, which ensures this bracelet will not slip off. The seller is courteous, polite, pleasant, and really keeps on top on the shipped item to make sure that it reaches its recipient. Very great shopping experience - highly recommend!

Gifts from the Earth.
I am in my happy place when I'm creating. Designing and crafting natural gemstone and sterling silver jewelry has been a major part of my life for many many years. It is such a joy to share my creations using these miracles of nature with others.
My early work with glass beads and metal-wire lead me to Natural Gemstones & Crystals and Sterling Silver. Gemstones and Crystals have such a wonderful living energy that is transferred to us when we look at them or even better, touch them.
Wearing gemstones imparts their specific vibration into our field where they can boost our energy (Carnelian), clear our space (Amber) and attract wealth (Citrine). Green Tourmaline can increase our mental abilities, whereas Rhodonite attracts love.
Some crystals, Smokey Quartz and Black Tourmaline, have the ability to absorb negative energy and electromagnetic smog from cell phones, power lines etc. Amethyst transmutes negative energy from another person into love. It has a calming effect on the mind, helping us feel less scattered and more focused. A wonderful resource for more information on properties of gemstones and crystals is, The Crystal Bible, by Judy Hall or Love Is In The Earth, by Melody.
My jewelry is made for its beauty and to enhance positive energy. It is my hope that the piece you are drawn to brings happiness to your life.
I fell in love with making my own jewelry in high school using unique beads, sea shells, leather and hemp cord. Eventually, glass beads were replaced by natural gemstones/ crystals and base metal by sterling silver. It's been a wonderful journey.
I believe we are drawn to natural gemstones and pearls for their healing properties and their ability to bring joy and happiness. Trust that the piece you choose is the one that's right; you don't have to know why or how. If you want more info, there are many great books on the properties of gemstones. "Love Is In The Earth" by Melody, and "The Book Of Stones" by Richard Simmons are wonderful references.
All jewelry in this shop is made from natural gemstones, fresh water pearls and sterling silver. If a piece "calls for" gemstones or pearls that are dyed, I will let you know in the description. Sometimes a dyed garnet or green pearl, for instance, are exactly what the design asks for.
You may wonder why I make mostly bracelets... it's pretty simple really, because you can see them! Necklaces and earrings are essential, and I love them, of course. But a bracelet can be seen by the wearer with a quick glance at the wrist, no doubt invoking a smile and a feeling of contentment. Personally, I rarely go a day without wearing a beautiful bracelet.
