This summer I am going to be doing a lot of crafting, especially because I will be selling at a Renaissance Faire. To start the summer off, I have been making jewelry, and some of that jewelry has involved natural gemstones which are thought to have medicinal properties. The idea is that everything vibrates at the molecular level at a different frequency, and that causes everything to give off energy.
Some natural materials are thought to give off energies which can be very beneficial to the mind and body. Some stones can cure insomnia, help relieve stress, bring good fortune, and even strengthen your bones. Wether you believe that wearing a medicinal stone will have any measurable effect on your physical health, I think that they are a great way to help the mind focus on more positive things. If you wear a stone for courage, it will serve as a reminder that you aim to face your fears. Or a stone to calm the mind might help you focus your thoughts; by focusing on the stone, you can clear your mind of all other things, and thus by your own will-power, achieve a stress-free state.
I have a wide assortment of stones such as charoite, jasper, howlite, citrine, and more, in heart shapes and in rounded nuggets. They are strung on either a silver chain or on a black cord. I will be selling these necklaces at the upcoming Silver Kingdom Renaissance Festival in Charlton, MA this june. Anything that doesn’t sell at the faire will be put up for sale on my Etsy. And this assortment is only some of what I’ve made so far. There’s plenty more to come.
