New Design – The OM Necklace

OmThe OM Sacred symbol it is also known as the OM Sacred Sound of the Universe it is not easy to explain the pure meaning in few words. “Om” is familiar to anyone who’s takes yoga classes, where it is often chanted at the beginning and end of the session. If you are not familiar with this symbol you can read more here and in this other source here.

I have been always fascinated by the sacred OM symbol that I wanted to design a necklace representing it. I designed and crafted a silver wired OM pendant created in two pieces. I wanted it to be as accurate as possible while forging, twisting and hammering the silver wire in a OM shape.

OM Necklace

I selected a beautiful combination of natural healing stones with great meanings, the Orange Agate have the power to harmonize the positive and negative forces that hold the universe in place.  Amazonite  in beautiful shades of blue-green soothe the spirit and calm the soul.  Smoky Crystal protects against negative energies.

New design Jewelry set – The Circle of life

Circle of life Set

During this week I have been working on a new design inspired by the Circle of life. I had a wonderful custom request from a loyal customer that loves my creations at the point to own many  of my jewelry designs.  In her request, she ask me to design a three pieces set, necklace, bracelet, earrings with Turquoise stones. That’s all she said to me, she said I trust your Art blindly, I like everything you make! Those words are precious to me, I am very thankful for her.
Circle_of_life_NecklaceWhile I was drawing the sketch for the necklace pendant, for some mysterious reasons, I envisioned in my mind a spiral circle, and I kept designing and thinking at the meaning, that’s when “The circle of Life” came to mind.

“Definition of Circle of life”  Nature’s way of taking and giving back life to earth. It symbolizes the universe being sacred and divine. It represents the infinite nature of energy if something dies it gives new life to another.
Circle of life BraceletTurquoise, is considered the most ancient and old gemstone in the history of mens, it emits protective energy and power, it was used from warriors, for protection and courage and believed that blesses who wear it. Native Americans honored this beautiful stone as Sacred stone and believed that helps to become one with the universe.

Circle of life Hoop Earrings
Circle of life Set1 copyI love this set and how my design came all together! The association to the beautiful meaning of life, with the powerful meaning and benefits of the ancient Turquoise stone. I hope that you enjoyed to see how my creation was born from just few words said.
