These earrings are made with hand-cut and shaped copper, hammered into shallow bowls. Attached are turquoise beads held in place with purple glass beads, and dangling from a copper chain are two precious Tibetan amber beads resulting in a magical and eye-catching display of color. They are light weight, and the copper is highly reflective and light-catching.
Turquoise is sacred to both Native American and oriental traditions. It is associated with the sky, and bringing sky energy to earth. It can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart. Turquoise is associated with the throat chakra, and as such it carries great wisdom and basic truths within it. It is also a powerful crystal for relieving stress. It is said to protect against pollution in the environment, to help speed the healing process, and is known as a master healer stone.
Amber has strong connections with the earth and is a grounding stone for higher energies. Amber is a powerful healer and cleanser that draws dis-ease from the body and promotes tissue revitalization. A powerful protector, it links the everyday self to the higher spiritual reality. Mentally, Amber stimulates the intellect, clears depression and promotes a positive mental state and creative self expression.
Copper is considered a mineral of energy and mental agility. As an excellent conductor of energy, it can manipulate the mystical subtle energies emanating from higher planes. Thus, copper is said to amplify and transmit thoughts, even over long distances. Copper is used in traditional folk remedy and crystal healing lore to bring in additional energies for all types of healing, treatment of arthritis, relieving pain of broken bones, sexual instability, and low energy. It should be noted however, that while copper is an essential nutrient mineral, it is only needed in small quantities. Too much copper can be as much of a health problem as too little copper. Here’s a handy link to determine if you may be suffering from too much or too little copper.
