Amber stone is not strictly speaking a stone at all, but a fossilised resin. It is a powerful healer imbuing the wearer with a lovely sense of health and healing. Amber helps to balance the emotions, clear the mind and release negative energy.
Carnelian is a stabilising stone, it restores vitality and motivation, and stimulates creativity. It gives courage, promotes positive life choices, dispels apathy and motivates for success. It overcomes negative conditioning and encourages steadfastness. It sharpens concentration and dispels mental lethargy. Protects against envy, rage and resentment. Calms anger, banishes emotional negativity and replaces it with a love of life. Carnelian boosts fertility and stimulates sexuality.
So all in all, two pretty good stones to wear!
I love big silver hoops and have worn pearl and rose quartz ones for months, but now Autumn is firmly making its presence known, I felt I needed a more Autumnal colour palette - so I decided on the glorious warmth of Amber and Garnet.
I have handmade the hoops using 1.5mm sterling silver wire, and the ear wires are 0.8mm which is considered to be the most comfortable to wear by the experts - I don't know who the experts are, but I'm bowing to their superior knowledge.
I wear all my pieces for a few weeks to check that they are comfortable, fun and sturdy before putting the design onto the site for sale, so if you order a pair of these earrings, they will be made just for you - all shiny and new!
