INSPIRATION: Summer weekends- the tans, the swimsuits, the flowers, the food- on the beach in Riccione, Italia.
ABOUT THE STONES: Part of my fascination with jewelry making is the stones. What do they mean? Where did they come from? Below find the meaning of the stones of this particular piece. Please keep in mind that gemstones and semi-precious gemstones have many different meanings to many different cultures- these are just what I’ve found in my research! :)
*** HOWLITE is a super-calming stone and many people use it to relieve stress of all kinds. It makes an excellent antidote to insomnia due to an overactive mind. Wear a howlite stone to absorb your own anger - or another's anger that is directed toward you. It helps to overcome critical or selfish behavior.
***CZECH GLASS At the turn of the 16th and 17th century Bohemia became the center of crystal glass production. Important technological discoveries during the crystal production era in Bohemia led to the formation of the ideal crystal glass, particularly suited to cutting and engraving. This glass, called Czech crystal, has been top of the range in the crystal glass industry for more than one century. These beads are machine faceted, then polished by glazing inside a red-hot oven. This gives them beautiful, glistening colors with a "softer" look and a smoother feel.
