GAIA BLESSINGS is a tribal amulet that features a stunning, wire wrapped Ammonite pendant with charm dangles of Quartz Crystal points, Green Garnet and Lemon Quartz crystal beads. My concept was to create ornately beaded necklaces that recall more ancient times where gemstones were worn as amulets of protection, strength and power. The necklace is adjustable with Black leather ties that are knotted around an African brass ring from an antique money belt and an African bone focal bead. The leather ties can be worn down the back or in front. GAIA BLESSINGS can also be worn as a choker or lower on the chest. The necklace features African brass spacers, dark oxidized chain, wire and findings. GAIA BLESSINGS feels substantial and is reflective of Warrior Spirit.
AMMONITES are the fossilized remains of ancient sea creatures. A type of cephalopod mollusk, they are found around the world. Over time, ammonite fossils were pushed up to the surface or washed out into rivers. These fossils have fascinated people throughout the ages. There is various lore surrounding ammonite fossils, but all seem to attribute health, prosperity, and good luck to the fossils. The fossil is named for the Egyptian god Ammon, because their shape resembles his ram horns. Ammonite was prized by the ancient Egyptian and Roman societies and was considered to have magical and holy powers. It is considered to be a protective stone that gives stability and structure to a person’s life. It is said to change negativity into smoothly flowing energy. It is also said to assist with childbirth, depression, and general survival instincts.
QUARTZ CRYSTAL is known as the "master healer" and will amplify energy and thought, as well as the effect of other crystals. It absorbs, stores, releases and regulates energy. Clear Quartz enhances psychic abilities. It aids concentration and unlocks memory. Stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance. Clear Quartz (Crystal Quartz, Rock Crystal) harmonizes all the chakras and aligns the subtle bodies.
GREEN GARNET has its own energetic properties as well as those of garnet in general. Green Garnet is a stone of confidence, and stability in challenges. It is said to be particularly beneficial and stabilizing in lawsuits. Green Garnet is used for manifestation and both physical and spiritual abundance. It is also a stone of service, enhancing one's will and ability to serve and energizing cooperative efforts. Green Garnet is a fertility stone and said to particularly enhance fertility when one meditates upon it. Green Garnet is related primarily to the heart and solar plexus chakras.
LEMON QUARTZ is celebrated as the happiness stone. Lemon Quartz purifies negative thoughts and emotions, and dissolves depression. Amplifies positive feelings and ideas, to enhance clarity and communication. Grants tolerance and forgiveness to the wearer. Excellent for harmonizing and balancing, thus Lemon Quartz is extremely beneficial for meditation and creative visualization.
COYOTE TOTEM symbolizes playfulness, nonsense, intelligence, cunning and joy. Coyote people form strong family bonds and have strong preferences. They are highly adaptable, opportunistic, and versatile. They are often considered to be "pranksters" or "tricksters" in many cultures likely due to their cunning hunting techniques of running prey to exhaustion towards a hidden pack member who then finishes the kill. People with coyote totems will often be cunning as well. Coyote's barks are very shrill and distinctive and how they call their pack together. Coyote people can use their own voice in ways that draw people together as well, but may sometimes have a hidden agenda.
