Handcrafted Beaded Jewelry - Shopping Therapy For the Body, Mind, & Spirit!
India has the longest continuous legacy of jewelry making with a history of over 5,000 years. Jewelry making started in China around the same period, but became widespread with the spread of Buddhism around 2,000 years ago. Since then jewelry has long been used as religious amulets, tokens, charms and carriers for the mystical powers believed to resonate in the earth's natural metals and stones.
According to the ancient Vedic tradition of India, there are seven primary chakras, or energy centers, on the mid-line of the body. In Sanskrit, the word chakra means spinning wheel, as these energy centers are believed to be spinning wheels or vortexes of light and color. Each chakra has its own subtle characteristic properties relating to a specific organ system in the body and facet of the psyche. Physical and psychological conditions are believed to manifest in the chakras and auric field long before physical manifestation.
Crystals, gemstones and minerals are powerful healers and generators of pure positive energy. When applied to the body, such as in powerful pieces of handcrafted beaded artisan jewelry and handcrafted sterling silver artisan jewelry, the energy of the stones assist us in healing, grounding and manifesting the energy we would like to create in our physical space or physical world.
Particular crystals, gemstones and minerals relate to a particular chakra. By applying these stones on the relevant chakra, one can focus powerful healing and regenerative energy to the organ system and facet of the psyche associated with that chakra.
Shopping for handcrafted sterling silver artisan jewelry with handcrafted beaded crystals, gemstones and minerals around the neckline and hanging over the heart is not only shopping therapy, it's truly healing for the body, mind and spirit.
So next time you feel the urge to splurge, consider what chakra might be in need of some TLC, and shop for a beautiful artisan necklace, artisan bracelet or artisan earrings with that particular chakra's corresponding power stone.
