Water lilies are symbolic of strength and transformation in a person’s life where that person has come from out of a dark place in life and into the light just as the lily rises up from the mud and breaks through the surface of the water into the light. The lily pad itself captures sunlight and sustains the plant. Water is symbolic of the emotions.
Turquoise: (5th Chakra, throat area) This yummy gemstone is representative of wholeness, communication and spiritual expansion. Especially good for spiritual integration. All parts are valid and make up the whole. On your spiritual journey it is important to integrate and validate all aspects of the self, even the parts that are perceived as negative. This stone is great for self-acceptance and self-forgiveness.
The abalone shell that dangles from the center is brilliantly colorful and picks up the silver-gray tones in the mother of pearl rectangles that dangle along the necklace strand.

Paper beads are actually from paper I purchased at a fine art store, not used for tobacco. I hand rolled them myself.
Great for a day where you have a little wild animal inside that just needs to come out. A petrified wood centerpiece paired with two tiger-striped glass beads and small semi-precious jade stones in pink. The clasp is hand-made by me from copper wire and has a rose quartz stone dangling from it to add weight to the bracelet for proper sitting on the wrist. Part of my personal collection.
