Gemstone Jewellery

There is something special about working with natural gemstones.  The bracelets above are amazonite, moonstone and fluorite. Amazonite is said to be calming and enhance creativity, fluorite is for concentration and clarity of mind and moonstone is said to enhance intuition and promote inspiration.  I don't know if there is any truth in the folklore around the stones but I feel calm, creative, mindful and inspired when making things with them!  I will be putting the bracelets in my etsy shop sometime during next week.

I don't know if it's the gems or the crafting itself, which always works in a relaxing way for me,but I'm glad it has this effect on you! Happy to see you're up again!

Lovely, all of them. Hard to choose between them.

yes, blue tones are calming, the more you read about the properties of different gems, the more fascinating they are, and these bracelets are lovely. I wear a lot of natural stones, as you might have guessed!

Looks so pretty!! But the middle one sky blue color looks much better. Usually I like to wear silver bracelets but this one changed my choice.
