This lovely necklace features glass crystals, raku-finished ceramic pentacle/pentagram beads and raven focal, cobalt blue Czech glass beads and bright copper accents. All findings are bronze-finished steel or Tibetan silver.
The total beaded length, including the lobster clasp, is approximately 17.75″.
Metaphysically speaking, glass represents transformation, as well as communication, rebirth and the blending of elements. Think of how glass comes to be, with sand (earth) being formed into a new material with the use of fire, which cannot exist without air.
Copper tends to stimulate and encourage optimism, independence, harmony, luck, sexuality, intuition and general vitality. Copper is a wonderful conductor of healing energy and its properties are useful in many areas of healing.
Quartz, also known as rock crystal, is the most universally known and plentiful mineral. Quartz enhances the energy of other stones around it and is also excellent for use in finding balance, clarity and harmony. It is also used for healing, channeling, clearing negative energy and protection. Its energies can aid in meditation, divination, channeling, manifestation and more.

Rose quartz is associated with the heart chakra. It can help open us to all forms of love; its energies are useful in boosting self-confidence and self-worth. Rose quartz is a powerful but gentle healing stone and can specifically help with encouraging self-awareness, dreamwork, trust, harmony and dispelling negativity. It is also often used in fertility magic.
Pearls symbolize purity, spiritual journey, charity, honesty, wisdom and integrity. They can also heighten our ability to receive spiritual guidance. They are undeniably sensual and feminine.

I was thinking this morning that it had been too long since I’d run a giveaway, and I have a feeling that someone out there could really use this sweet little vial necklace for healing and protection. ♥ Click below to enter!
Enter via Facebook, or directly through Rafflecopter.
The tiny beads in the vial are mostly sunstone, with a touch of carnelian.
Sunstone is somewhat rare and is most commonly found in Norway. It has profound healing properties and tends to foster feelings of cheerfulness, self confidence, self esteem and general positivity, along with dispelling negative inhibitions. Sunstone is very helpful with enhancing spiritual growth, manifestation, releasing stress and clearing one’s mind. It is also helpful with fertility issues.
Carnelian is associated with the root and sacral chakras. It can help fend off negativity and depression, while fostering courage and clear thinking, aiding in grounding and amplifying energy (including sexual energy). This stone encourages creativity, happiness, and aids in past life recall. It is also useful in warding against psychic attack and said to protect the wearer from the evil eye.
Onyx’s energies can aid in increasing intuition and joy, repelling negativity, finding balance and ridding oneself of bad habits. It brings strength and healing, and can enhance psychic workings. Onyx is also a grounding, protective stone which can aid in repelling negativity and psychic attack.

I’ve been a bit frazzled and slow recently, thanks to the heat… Sometimes that means that I forget to post here or choose to post less frequently, since most of my engagement is on Facebook, but I’m trying to figure out the best way to stay on top of everything and also set up an email newsletter. In the meantime, sometimes I post stuff like this… Here’s a look at what I’ve been up to very recently. If you pop over to my shop, you can check out the items I’ve placed in my newly created clearance section, as well as some newer pieces not shown here. I’ve also posted some new charms and pendants on FB, which are available for custom orders.
I’d really love to hear what you think of any of the new pieces!
