Amethyst

Amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty and legendary powers to stimulate, and soothe, the mind and emotions. Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to promote calm, balance, and peace. It is also used to eliminate impatience. When in yoga class I notice many of the students wearing this stone in bracelets or amethyst beaded mala for protection, and to guard the mind from negative thought.

I was going through my stock of amethyst and came across this particular bead. The different shades that occur naturally in is this stone created a very unique shape. I am totally in love with it. The shape reminds me of a shield; most likely I will make it into a necklace with it being the center focal bead.  I am in the process of making some really nice amethyst earrings, in the meantime please feel free to check out my amazing amethyst bracelets that are currently available, links listed below.

Amazing Natural Beautiful Colors

I just love the fall season when colorful foliage paints our landscape. The landscape change from green to crimson, orange, brown and golden .The colorful display of beautiful flowers, gourds, different varieties of pumpkins and the leaves on the trees provides us with beautiful colors that takes our senses to a different place.

The beverages we like, hot coffee takes on new meaning in the crisp mornings.  A morning walk takes on a mysterious feeling with wisps of fog, the best part is seeing the fog give way to the morning sun and the colorful display of yellow, orange, brown and wine appear out of nowhere.

I like to create some of my jewelry with the time of the seasons. I really love the colors in my fall gemstone wrap bracelet. It has all the colors of fall and if you look closely at the jasper gemstones you can see the fine detail of the stone that resembles scenes of nature. Good thing the bracelet is comfortable to wear because I wear it a lot and in all seasons. There are some just like it available on my site http://www.prettiuneek.com/shop/wrap-bracelet?category=Bracelets. Definitely take a look and let me know how much you enjoy the fall colors.

Natural Jewelry Inspiration

Whenever I see colors I get inspired and start thinking about what a particular color would look like in a pair of earring or a bracelet. I really get inspired when I see the colors in nature. On my visit to the Grand Canyon I was thoroughly inspired by all the beautiful colors of the rocks. I kept thinking what a beautiful and colorful bracelet that could be made from the rocks of the canyon. Crazy right? I guess when you get bit by the Jewelry and gemstone bug it really has the mind thinking in the strangest ways. I have a Yoga gemstone bracelet available which really reminds me of the colors of the canyon. Feel free to check it out in my selection of Yoga gemstone jewelry.

Recycle

IMG_2884.jpg

I am always looking for ways to reuse things. I recycle tee shirts and now leggings just too name some of the clothing I recycle. When it comes to containers I am obsessed. I have even bought food items just to get the container for my future use. Seems crazy right? When making jewelry I am always looking to recycle containers. They do not have to be fancy; just functional. An empty coffee container has become a great place for me to store my tools.
