Loving Memories p02 (Chain not included)
Size: 1” x 5" Materials: Brass, Turquoise
Technique: Roll mill, Chainmaille (love knot weave)
I recently ran into a dear friend I have not seen for years. Of course, we reminisced, bringing up fond and fun memories, as well as some we wished could have been more pleasant. Playing around back in my studio, I came up with this design: the brass ovals represent memories imprinted into the fabric of one's life, the love knots the warm feelings most of these memories engender. I selected Turquoise for its protective properties.
Brass represents the natural goodness of Nature and is believed to attract health and wealth. It is known for its healing properties: it is believed to boost the immune system and to give courage.
Turquoise, perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, is the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection. For thousands of years, spanning all cultures, it is prized as a symbol of wisdom, nobility and the power of immortality.
Because of the nature of handmade jewelry, each piece is slightly different.
