Labor Day Sale – 50% off any item with code: MYCHOICE
Sometimes, all the noise around us, the headlines, the bills, the little things that go wrong each day, make us feel less inclined to be “good to ourselves.” Buying a luxury item like a piece of jewelry, may seem frivolous. But, the truth is, jewelry is not quite as frivolous as one might think.
Not surprisingly, wearing jewelry dates back over 75,000 years, that being the earliest piece of adornment that has ever been found. It consisted of animal hides, bones and reeds. Other jewelry items that have been found from prehistoric times consist of animal teeth, feathers, shells, pebbles and even, berries.
So, why did our very ancient ancestors adorn themselves with jewelry? One can only conjecture, of course but, it would seem that it fulfilled some very basic needs that ranged from connecting to the earth and all the living things around them and, perhaps, feeling spiritually energized by the elements they used.
We are, at least I know I am, an outgoing person! I like to express myself – let my feelings be known. Jewelry gives me the opportunity to make a statement about my taste, my sense of self, my need to connect to the natural world, my love of fashion and my belief that stones and other natural elements, contain fierce and positive energy. Stones have been used for centuries in healing and spiritual rituals. They are still used in that same way, today.
Many people believed in the protective capabilities of stones. Great Generals, like Napoleon, carried stones in their pockets or wore amulets or pendants believing, they would keep them from harm.
And finally, and by no means the least important, jewelry just makes us feel good. It brings beauty, light, energy and, a much needed touch of self indulgence into our lives. Being good to yourself is a positive thing and radiates out into the world around you.
So, to make it easier for you to have that piece of jewelry that seems to be calling your name, EarthWhorls Labor Day Sale offers you a 50% discount on any item you choose from my online store!!! Code: MYCHOICE
