If my etsy shop doesn't pick up over the next few months I think I will stop trying to sell the things I make on line. I may even keep them for myself! I have considered doing an 'open house' for the neighbours to come and see/buy what I make but at the moment I just don't have the budget for buying more materials to make things with to put on a big display. It is very difficult to know what to do for the best.
On my last post I mentioned some of the other bracelets I have been making. The bracelets above are part of my 'transitional' range when we change over from one season into the next. The idea is to wear the serpentine (or lemon jade as they are known in the trade) bracelets in the summer months when the slightly acid lemon compliments a sun kissed skin and then adding the dalmatian jasper as we cross over into the autumn months. In the autumn the dalmatian jasper can be worn as a stand alone piece of jewellery that blends with the colours of the season. They are so tactile and feel lovely worn against the skin. Serpentine is supposed to aid in unblocking chakra's and removing stagnant energies and dalmatian jasper helps to decrease any disillusionment you may be feeling, and helps you to let go of the things that are no longer of value to you and encourages faith and loyalty in your relationships. Whether or not you believe in the healing properties of the gemstones they are nice to look at and give a person a sense of individuality when wearing them. I am sure that owners of dalmatian dogs would love a dalmatian bracelet!
