Since I've started making jewelry I have been drawn into the metaphysical properties of natural gemstones. It's fascinating, really.

Of course, many of these stem from folklore passed on for generations and generations, but it's insightful to know the history of these stones. Not only are they beautiful, but they have healing properties as well? I don't know about you- but that's enough to make me wear more jewelry. :)

For example:

10 mm pink amethyst cabochons

Did you know that amethyst is able to relieve worries & anxiety? It's also known to enhance mental strength. It's a powerful crystal that encourages purification, calm, and transition and transformation.
Popular wearers include Cleopatra, whom wore it as a ring. Another is Leonardo Di Vinci, whom believed in it's powers and wore it as a protective talisman (against evil thoughts and to encourage intellect).
The thing is, in order for to benefit from the metaphysical properties of the actual gemstone you need to have the gem come in contact with your skin.
This insight inspired my new! line of rings, necklaces and bracelets. All of the jewelry in this collection will have open back bezels, which allows contact between you and the beautiful gem.
Look for some sneak peeks in the coming week(s)!
