I am really behind on my jewelry making. I have been knitting a lot at work with ongoing workshops and so far, so good. People are really enjoying learning how to loom knit and I am working on a spring scarf for one of my baby brothers currently and it's 100% cotton. I must say, I have fallen in love with cotton yarn and anything by sugar and cream. Anything that you can put in the washing machine is a great friend to your wardrobe. Plus practice makes perfect. We are learning from each other and I hope to finish this for my brother soon.
But back to the earrings below. My aunt hits a milestone this year and I always mail something to Denver for her birthday each year. She wears a lot of red and looks great in white, so I wanted to do something with my dyed coral beads.
Coral is the essence of life and a first chakra stone. Good for anyone full of life and energy. I added a jet spacer between the beads as an accent.
Below is rhondite and onyx. Rhondite is a love stone and affects the fourth chakra. Essential to all women and represents love and forgiveness. Onyx, as I have mentioned before represents strength and protection. And besides, black goes with everything..........
Now to the third pair. How could I leave out carnelian? It looks great with the shell beads and it a love, money and health gemstone. One of my favorites next to garnet!
