Communication with jewelry

I dropped off some new inventory at The Nature of Art this morning. My stuff has been moving out of there lately and I am pleased. Typically when I bring in new things, I try to 'theme' them. By theme I mean, I create the pieces using a common property from the stones. This month I chose communication.

Here is a smattering of the pieces I took in and their properties.

Chrysocola, lapis, lepidolite, labradorite, larvakite

Chrysocola - gentle stone and its energy works in a gentle, harmonious way.
Labradorite -provides clarity and insight
Lapis - brings truthfulness, openness
Lepidolite - calm, trust, and acceptance.
Larvakite - is associated with the throat chakra where communication comes from

Rhyolite and carnelian

Rhyolite, carnelian, tiger eye
Carnelian - can aid memory.

Lapis, citrine

Lapis - brings truthfulness, openness
Citrine - mental clarity, confidence, happiness and will power

Amazonite, apatite, carnelian

Amazonite - ruth, honor, communication
Apatite - increase intellect, imagination, and intuitive awareness
Carnelian - can aid memory


  1. Your lucky customers, to have someone who creates beautiful designs *and* makes them with such care towards the properties and goodness they'll bring to the wearer!

    I love 'em all, but I think my favorite is the one with the Rhyolite and carnelian. What's the focal stone? Moss Agate? Very lovely.

  2. Thanks so much for the sweet comment!

    Rhyolite is the focal stone. I have heard some say that rhyolite and rainforest jasper is the same thing. I love the patterns in that stone.

  3. I love the lapis and citrine necklace. WOW!

  4. Well, I like them all of course, but the lapis and citrine really jumped out at me...
