When Stones Speak

by Susan A. Katz June 10, 2015 1 Comment

We have all had the experience of walking along a wooded path or strolling along the beach, with sea foam lapping at our toes and noticed something wonderful: a stone.  My home is filled to overflowing with stones from around the world.  Some of these stones I’ve bought but most, I found.  And there was something about them that touched me, called to me, seemed somehow familiar to me or, simply stunned me with their unequaled beauty.

The amazing stones featured in these designs, ruby zoisite and agate, are truly works of art, given to us by the generosity and boundless creative energy, of Nature.  She is the one who combines elements over eons and eons, compressing them, shaping them and sometimes, even polishing them so that they come to us as though gifts worthy of a King.

Ruby Zoisite, designed as a pair of earrings and a bracelet, is thought to instill a feeling of joy, add spontaneity, laughter and courage to one’s life and open one’s eyes to the endless wonder of the natural world. 

Agate, designed as a simple pendant suspended from a sterling silver collar, is thought to hold the key to positive energy and deep emotional contentment.

A bracelet, a pair of earrings and a pendant, featured in this month’s EarthWhorls “Perfect for Summer” Collection “speak” of the heat, excitement, passion and promise of long summer days and perfect summer nights.
