This is a special Birthday ring, made with 18ct rose gold, gemstones reused from an older ring. What a great sparkle to celebrate my work anniversary too. I can't decide does the cluster look like stars fallen from the sky or are the gems splashing water droplets, I used that nice thought for taking the photos. May abundance be with you all.
All the colours of warmth, strength and power. Bring them with you on a relaxing walk in the forrest, find some peace for contemplation in the shade of trees. Feel the universe breathing with you as one. Igniting the fire of your true self.
Tomorrow they promise us a super moon, as full as the moon shines, nature shows off everywhere with abundance, lush greens, they changed from the gentle spring green to a strong vibrant, exuberant green, the green that opens your heart and says I can and I will, the green of Emerald bringing good fortune your way. Enjoy this magical time.
I understood yesterday, that it doesn't matter, if I make jewellery from a cherries pip, a beach stone or a diamond.
What is most important to me, is that the piece of jewellery you adorn yourself with connects to your soul.
So for example, if I eat a cherrie during an amazing life changing or happy moment, this pip will always remind me of it.
A space holder a time capsule of my personal journey, it mightn't mean anything to anyone else, but this pip incorporates all the magic of my memory, the story I'll tell my grand children, this tiny piece of wood was witness of that moment in time. It is an anchor for happiness and worth much more to me then a diamond, because it has the power to repeat this moment of happiness for me, every time I look at it. -I am reminded of how blessed I am.The pip is just an example. I have a ring with a stone from my sisters garden, a small piece of Germany, I can wear whenever I am homesick.
So keep your eyes open when happiness comes over you, it might be just a flicker, but it is up to you to seize the moment and repeat it over and over. Like the sea washes over the stone again and again until the tide changes.
I do love the sparkle of diamonds too and all the other amazing gem stones mother earth came up with, find a way to connect with your true self and see what colour and energy comes to you; to enrich your journey positively.
