A note on the healing/support properties of beads
There are a lot of available sources on the healing/support properties of precious and semi-precious stones. A little bit further down, I'll provide a list of my favorite resources and websites. I use them along with information I receive from my spirit guides during shamanic journeying.
My best advice to clients and buyers of my ready-made pieces is this: wear the piece for a while to discover what you feel when you wear it. For example, after I finished a necklace largely of Tibetan Turquoise and Carnelian which, when I put it on, provided me a sense of deep warmth and contentment (felt in my chest), ease of lower back pain, and awareness of being comfortable in my own power. The color combination or turquoise and orange turns out to be pretty potent as Howard Johnson's certainly knew way back when.
After you've worn a new piece for a while, felt all you can from it, I'd love to hear from you about what else (besides the properties listed in its description) it may have set in motion in your body and life. So, relax and enjoy.
