INSPIRATION: I spent less than 24 hours in Tangier, Morocco but it left a pretty big impact on me. Inspiration for this piece comes from the deep, rich hues of the spices at the vendor stalls.
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! :)
***RUBY is considered to be the most powerful gem in the universe, and is associated with many astral signs. Given as a gift, the ruby is a symbol of friendship and love. Ruby is a symbol of vitality and royalty. Ruby is also filled with love. It also helps sexual love to be more passionate.
***EMERALD is the sacred stone of the goddess Venus. It was thought to preserve love. The emerald has long been the symbol of hope. The strongest time for the powers of the emerald is said to be spring. Lucky for love, give your lover an emerald to stay faithful.
***DRUZY AGATE is made of many tiny crystals like a "skin" of sparkly crystals. Druzy usually grew originally over another crystal or matrix, though they may not be attached to it currently. Occasionally they are floater clusters with no attachment previously to a matrix. The power of light is brought to an environment with a druzy cluster. Like other types of clusters, they can empower the energy of other crystals and stones.
