“SilKIN” is my favorite collection of adornments to date.
Every inch of these talismans has been pored over, and imbued with intention, care, and connection to the natural world. I believe there is such a portal to the world of spirit - through the lens of nature.
Rose Quartz is a stone of the heart, of the Heart Chakra specifically.. and carries with in the vibration of universal love and healing. It kindles a precious self-love within us, allowing us to radiate that out into the whole universe. It also carries a strong feminine energy, and can be used to nurture compassion, tenderness, empathy, and comfort.
This gemstone is very high quality, and faceted beautifully.
The cording began life as recycled sari silk - cut into strips, prepared for natural dye, and in this case, dipped into a bath of fresh indigo leaves that I grew myself. After the lengthy dye process, I twisted the silk into cording - creating a secure yet adjustable closure and a tassel-like finish.
The piece is designed to be worn long, or easily adjusted for a higher-sitting necklace. This piece will even wrap twice around the neck, and can be worn on the wrist as well. These are excellent layering choices, sitting beautifully with other stones or plain chain, giving a fun play of textures.
