Allow yourself to become who you were always meant to be and start to express your creativity and unique personality freely and without fear!

For me this bracelet represent creative energy, the beginning of Summer and a girl becoming a woman. It speaks to me about going with the flow and letting in more joy and creative expression. But my first association was Ariel, one of my favorite childhood stories. :)

In this piece I used natural turquoise nuggets, aquamarine chips and carnelian combined with glass and recycled wooden beads on memory wire and added some brass beads to achieve a more “gipsy” look.

Available on Etsy.

Stone and crystal meanings:

Aquamarine establishes a closer relationship with the spiritual side of yourself. It is most powerful in bringing great peace and serenity, therefore it is often used as an aid to meditation. It is a stone courage and fortitude that can bring great power. It brings inner peace and self-love, gives shielding for the aura, and is said to bring angels for their guidance and protection.

Carnelian is a great empowerment and self-confidence booster, known as a stone of motivation and endurance, leadership and courage. It can help an insecure person to find strength within.

Turquoise is an ancient protection stone. It increases strength and psychic sensitivity and deepens your connection with the spirit world. It is said that if given a turquoise by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. Therefore it is the symbol of friendship. Turquoise is sacred to both Native American and oriental traditions. It can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart. It is also very powerful for grounding.
