Magical AAA Tourmaline Gems - Interesting Story About This Bracelet Below…
Last year I was in a major creative slump, not just in my jewelry design business but in my life in general.. I would go and sit in my studio and nothing would show itself. I had this beautiful strand of Multi Tourmaline gems I had bought the month before at our gem show. For some reason I kept wanting to put them in my mouth!
I decided to check my gemstone "bible" out (It's a huge and amazing manuel titled "Love is in the Earth".) I came to find out I was so drawn to this stone because it clears blocked creativity!
I instantly made myself a multi strand necklace and bracelet and wore it nonstop for a couple of weeks. For several restless nights I had vivid design ideas that I would have to sketch in the middle of the night before I could go back to sleep.
Thru those nights I designed a piece that made it on the cover of Belle Armoire. (From my CaryMartinDesigns line): http://www.etsy.com/listing/27087413/custom-made-to-order-seaswept-series?ref=pr_shop ...and a piece that led to being featured four months in a row in a BeadWork mag. out of Sydney Australia: http://www.etsy.com/listing/6974602/beach-dreams-in-tourmaline-tourmaline
I had a very amazing and productive year and continue to love to create jewelry especially for other designers made with Tourmaline! I am totally SOLD on the magic of this gem!
It's a powerful stone metaphysically. Perfect for a designer as it helps to keep your creative energy flowing and open. It also works on SELF ESTEEM. I know I can always use more of both!
