Loving Memories p01 (Chain not included)
Size: 1” x 4" Materials: Brass, Red coral
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 coral in this case to further facilitate remembering these past events.
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.
Coral represents diplomacy and is said to quiet the emotions and brings peace within. It facilitates intuition, imagination and visualization. Red Coral helps one to be in harmony with the natural forces of the universe and with the wilderness. Red Coral aligns one with the source of all wisdom.
Because of the nature of handmade jewelry, each piece is slightly different.
