I made this bracelet using lots of natural stone and crystal beads combined with some glass seed beads, red Czech glass flowers and an elephant charm. When I tried it on my first thoughts were “Namaste“…
“I honor the place in you in which the entire Universe dwells, I honor the place in you which is of Love, of Integrity, of Wisdom and of Peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are One.” – Hindu form Namaste
It just felt beautiful to wear it. I even thought about keeping if for myself but later I decided not to, because I felt it calling for another person…(I didn’t even had time to publish this post and it sold already).
I like the contrast of the red, pink and turquoise, It creates harmonious connection between the passionate and energetic fire and the gently floating water element. The elephant charm symbolizes strength, honor, stability and patience. In the Hindu tradition the elephant is found in the form of Ganesha who is the god of luck, fortune, protection and is a blessing upon all new projects.
I hope it brings joy to the owner. :) Namaste
Stone and crystal meanings:
Rhodochrosite is an excellent conductor of energy. It soothes the heart, stimulates warm feelings of love and compassion, benefits the creative process and promotes intuition.
White Opal is a stone of angelic connections. It is often used for clearing emotions to create more positive vibrations. It is useful in balancing all chakras. The opal is said to be many things including the most powerful of healing stones, the stone of hope, the stone of great achievement and even the “stone of the Gods”.
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection and carries great wisdom of basic truth within it. Because of its heavenly energy, turquoise is believed to provide a clear connection to the purity of natural elements. Turquoise can help one receive higher guidance and direction, as well as live life with more joy and happiness. Legend has it that the Native American Indians danced and rejoiced when the rains came. Their tears of joy mixed with the rain and seeped into Mother Earth to become Sky Stone – Turquoise. For nearly a thousand years, they have mined and fashioned Turquoise, using it to guard their burial sites. Indian priests wore it in ceremonies when calling upon the great spirit of the sky. Many honored Turquoise as the universal stone, believing their minds would become one with the universe when wearing it. Because of its ability to change colors, it was used in prophecy or divining. To the prehistoric Indian, Turquoise, worn on the body or used in ceremonies always signified the god of the sky alive in the earth.
Garnet is associated with the First Chakra, it is a stone of physical love and relationships, and a spiritual stone of psychic protection. The history of garnet’s ability to bring about transformation is found in many books. They were thought to counter melancholy and act as a heart stimulant. Garnet was named from granatum, the pomegranate, a red-jeweled womb symbol ever since the matriarchal age. Because of these ancient connections with feminine life force, it was sometimes thought that only women should wear garnets.
