This week I will be taking a turn towards the “looks” section of the blog. I will be sharing with you some of my favorite artisan jewelry makers. I have purchased pieces from all of them and wear them joyfully. Everyone needs a little sparkle in their life and a perfect way to accomplish that is with a pretty piece of jewelry if you ask me. Each artisan has a unique and distinct style and I love them all.
I am very happy to share the healing stone jewelry of Carly’s Haven with you today. I will be the first to admit that I don’t know anything at all about the qualities of these stones but that is why it is good to have the information available from someone as knowledgeable as Crystal. Each listing will tell you what the quality is of each stone in the piece. For example for smokey quartz it is explained that:
Smoky Quartz is a great grounding/anchoring crystal that has the ability to magnify the effects of other stones/crystals it’s placed with, as well as helping with headache pain.
I could use some of that!
Carly’s Haven Jewelry
Crystal from Carly’s Haven makes beautiful bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. She focuses on “healing stone” jewelry which I will be the first to admit is something about which I have limited knowledge. Just reading through the listings in the shop is an education. You get to appreciate how pretty the earrings, necklaces and bracelets are while reading about the various stones used to make them.
I have several pieces made by Crystal – but before she embarked on her current healing stone path. What that let’s me do is tell you how well made they are; her attention to design and detail is evident in every piece she makes. I love this multi-strand piece I purchased several years ago – so pretty!
This one is just full of sparkle! A crystal bracelet made by Crystal – how perfect is that?
What Are Healing Stones?
According to Wikipedia:
In Plato’s account of Atlantis, crystal healing is also mentioned. According to Plato the Atlanteans used crystals to read minds and transmit thoughts. The first historical documentation of crystals originated from the Ancient Sumerians (c. 4500 to c. 2000BC). The Sumerians used crystals in their magical formulas.
Writings dating back as far as 400BC make observations about the powers different crystals were believed to emit. Often if a negative incident occurred a specific stone would be used in an attempt to counteract the negative effect. This was done by wearing amulets or other talismans around the neck with specific stones.
The origins of crystal healing is tied to Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, India, Ancient Greece, or Ancient Rome (site)
Honestly, if a pretty piece of jewelry gives me the power to make myself feel better, all the better – right?
Examples of Healing Stone Jewelry
As you look through the shop you will find examples from crystals to gemstones to quartz to agates and more. When you find the piece you love you can click through to find out its properties or just buy it because you love it.
If you have a specific need you can contact Crystal to ask her to guide you to the pieces that would be helpful or to create you a custom order. There is a button on the left hand side of the shop, just under the table of contents.
Healing Stone Jewelry Would Make a Great Gift
If you have someone on your list who needs a bit of a pick me up why not look to do so with a bit of sparkle. You can browse through all of the pretties on display and then find a piece that suits your friend or family member.
A sparkling pair of earrings or a green aventurine bracelet may be just the thing to brighten their day. I love the way this stone plays with light.
All orders ship free domestically and are packaged ready to gift. If you are interested in a special order as I mentioned above you can contact Crystal to see what she can do for you.
