I have been into arts and crafts as far back as I can remember. As a child growing up in India I remember taking small glass jars with lids, filling them up with rose petals, adding sugar to some and oil to others, sealing them and putting them out in the sun to make jams and infused oils! I owe this creative energy to my mother!!!
Four years ago I started making jewelry and it quickly got out of hand. In order to support my “expensive hobby” I started selling my jewelry at local fairs and markets and also joined the online community.
I have found copper wire and semi precious stones to be my favorite medium. Because copper is such a wonderful physical conductor of electricity and heat, it is also considered the conductor of the spiritualist's belief system. According to myths, copper has the ability to conduct spiritual energy back and forth between individuals, crystals, the mind and the spirit world. Various cultures throughout the ages have believed that gemstones emit various vibrations and frequencies - potentially balancing and healing body, mind, and spirit.
It is common belief that using copper to frame or wrap gemstones, crystals, or other jewelry pieces will transmit the powers of the stone more readily to the person who wears them. The precious metals and colors used in the jewelry design will also enhance the stones power. This is the reason my pieces are cleansed and prayer infused before shipping to their new recipient!
