Something About Stone!

Sterling Silver, Copper, Turquoise...whats not to love?? For me I have only started to love and appreciate this genuine stone from our earth. Yes, I was a late bloomer. My favs were crystal, glass, and sterling silver which has later evolved into a love for stone and mixed metals over the past 5-6 years. While selling jewelry at my local craft shows I cant tell you the number of times that I have had a customer who is drawn to a certain stone in a necklace or bracelet because when they touch it they say that it makes them feel good or they connect with that piece of stone. Turquoise is one that people are commonly drawn too.

Turquoise was also known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures. If given turquoise by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. Turquoise is also the symbol of friendshop and brings peace to the home. Turquoise is also believed to take on the characteristics of the owner.

This is a sneak peek of this necklace that I will be listing later in my store. It is very rustic in nature from the color in the turquoise to the finishing of the metal and design. I have so many beautiful stones that I have been collecting to make into pieces of stay tuned.
