NIGHT VISION is a tribal amulet that features a large Green Garnet focal bead pendant with charm dangles of Red Tourmaline, Freshwater Pearls and tiny glass vials filled with magical bits. The glass bottles contain a collection of Red Garnet nuggets, plus tiny mice bones that were collected and cleaned from Barn Owl pellets. I personally gathered the Barn Owl pellets. 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. The necklace features African brass spacers, dark oxidized chain, wire and findings. NIGHT VISION feels substantial and is reflective of Warrior Spirit.
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.
RED TOURMALINE, also known as Rubellite Tourmaline, is a stone of the perfected heart - one that is strong, vital, and full of passion for love and life. This Tourmaline’s combination of vibrant pink and ruby red color energy creates a vibrational pattern that resonates deeper with the Heart Chakra than other heart-stones. It links not only to the heart of the Earth, but opens to love that goes beyond human relationships and reaches out to the Universe. [Simmons, 409] Rubellite stimulates not only the Heart Chakra, but the Root Chakra as well, bringing an increased flow of prana, or life-force energies, to nurture and heal the emotional body. Its grounding influence increases a zest for living and for lively interaction with others. It helps revitalize passion and joy in sexuality, and aids in making dedicated commitments based on love. [Simmons, 409][Gienger, 88]
GARNET is a stone of romantic love and passion. Metaphysically it is used to enhance sensuality, sexuality and intimacy. It is said that garnet will bring positive thoughts and boost energy. It is an excellent stone for manifestation and can assist mystically with building one's self-confidence as well as success in one's chosen profession. Garnet is commonly known as the stone for a successful business. Garnet is also a protective energy stone which is especially effective for protection from evil. It is also often used for gentle spiritual healing.
BARN OWL TOTEM is the symbol of the feminine, the moon and the night. The owl is the bird of magic and darkness, of prophecy and wisdom. An owl totem gives you the power to extract secrets. Meditate on the owl and things will be revealed. Listen to its voice inside of you. You will hear not what is being said by others, but what is hidden. You can detect subtleties of voice that others cannot. People cannot deceive a person who has an owl totem. Owl people can see into the darkness of others souls. Most owl people are clairvoyant because of this ability. It can be very scary at times. Learn to trust your instincts about people. Let your owl totem guide you. BARN OWL reflects the ability to the heart and the mind. It can connect you to spirits and the houses that they haunt. Mediums and “ghost hunters” often have this totem. This totem can give you very strong clairvoyant abilities.
MOUSE TOTEM has a gift for paying attention to the minutest of details in everything your do. You can easily discern which details are the important ones and which one do not need your attention. Your heightened awareness of your surroundings allows you to spot danger long before others around you. You also tend to be rather timid or shy in time of stress. Your temerity does not go unrecognized by yourself however and is often compensated for by your adaptability and determination.
