I actually made this piece as a celebration of pride, and have been waiting eagerly all year to be able to talk about it a little more in depth.
The rainbow wooden beads we used in this piece was actually a blessing from a lovely couple who used to make a lot of string bracelets using the wooden beads. When they heard that we were setting up My Neck Your Wrist, they gave us a whole box of these lovely wooden beads and told us to have fun with them~!
It has been a pleasure working with the beads as they are so finely polished and the colours are so vibrant I am astonished that after so long, they are still in such good condition! This is the thing you can always trust with wooden jewellery – the quality gets better with time.
The piece is currently still available for sale on the website and I’m happy to say that this month there will be more pieces like this appearing as we have recently discovered new amazing gems and beads~! So we’re looking at working on more experimentation in the creative process and hopefully we may even video tape some of it!
Rose Quartz, gold-leaf holder, gold-plated metal chain
A little bit about the Rose Quartz:
“The Rose Quartz, with its gentle pink essence, is a stone of the heart, a Crystal of Unconditional Love. It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort. It speaks directly to the Heart Chakra, dissolving emotional wounds, fears and resentments, and circulates a Divine loving energy throughout the entire aura. Reawakening the heart to its own innate love, it provides a deep sense of personal fulfillment and contentment, allowing one the capacity to truly give and receive love from others.”
