This is a wonderful powerful stone that comes from the Himalaya Mountains of Tibet and Nepal. It’s said that carrying or wearing one provides spiritual protection by creating a ‘bubble of light’ around the body, allowing only positive vibrations to penetrate the auric field. The stones emanate a silent ‘OM’ and they can be powerful activators of the third eye.
Turquoise has been mined and fashioned into jewellery and other items for about 1,000 years by Native Americans! Turquoise is a stone for finding wholeness and truth and is beneficial to overall well-being and soundness of one’s mood and emotions. The smaller piece below includes turquoise drops and ebony wood drops, wire-worked with gold-filled wire and hanging on gold-filled chain. The large piece has felted beads, including the ones that look like the pinwheel sandwiches I learned to make in high school Home Ec class for tea parties! I’ve also included some sterling silver pieces, ebony wood and a large piece of what else? Turquoise!
The piece on the outside is a double strand of turquoise with Heishi beads finished off with sterling silver cones and a hand-made sterling silver hook clasp. The other piece is turquoise with a hand-made gold-filled hook clasp with smoky quartz. Smoky quartz is a grounding stone that enhances organization and practicality.
