Altan & New Pieces

2018-02-09-Mairead-Gift-Blue-Triskele-Sodalite-Aquamarine-SterlingAJ and I will be heading off to see Altan in Seattle in just two and a half weeks. Eep! This is our first concert in almost 9 years. Music is a huge deal to both of us and we have been absolutely enamored of Altan for the past five years. They introduced us to traditional Celtic folk music and sparked a love affair that only burns more brightly over time. So, needless to say, we are excited.

I asked Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Altan’s incredibly talented frontwoman, what her favorite color is. She told me that she likes blue, so I made the piece above as a gift that we’ll bring with us to the show. I hope that she loves it! The beads are sodalite, aquamarine and sterling silver. The pendant is a handmade focal which can be used as an essential oil diffuser, made by the lovely Christine at Beadfreaky.

I’ve just listed some brand new pieces to the shop, as well. I’d love to hear what you think of these. 🙂

Amber has wonderful metaphysical properties, including strong healing and protection energies. Wear to rid yourself of negative or funky energy, help yourself find emotional balance and allay fears. Amber is a solar “gemstone” (it is actually fossilized tree resin) which positively radiates warm, soothing energy; it is actually known for turning negative energy that it absorbs into positive healing energy. It is often associated with the sacral and solar plexus chakras but can be used to help heal and balance any part of the body. Traditionally, amber has been used to seal a deal, including marriage, and has been carried by warriors and lovers for good fortune. It is used to foster unconditional love and heal emotional wounds. May help ease symptoms of digestive disorders, respiratory ailments, fibromyalgia and many other health concerns.
