I’ve finally started to turn thoughts into actions.
Tonight was spent putting together the first of some little Christmas presents. These ones are for the ladies. dainty rosary style chains made with gold-fill wire and semi-precious stones. I picked out three stones: Black Spinel, Lemon Quartz and Garnet.
The Black Spinel is my favorite and I may have snuck myself a little bracelet along the way. Oopsie.
Spinel is a relatively rare gem, with the only known deposits in Thailand, Africa, Myanmar (Burma) and Sri Lanka. It is mostly minded from the deposit in Thailand, so I’m imagining that is where these stones originate. I love it as a more mysterious alternative to Onyx. Spinels are supposedly associated with love and are also said to encourage passion and perhaps even to increase the duration of one’s life. Black Spinel in particular is thought to be a protective stone with powers to help re-establish relationships and resolve issues. Adorably it is also believed to relieve sadness. What a precious stone indeed! From now on, this is my anti-sadness bracelet.
I will post more photos tomorrow when there is sunshine and I’m not forced to try and contort in front of the bathroom mirror to snap a shot on my phone.
