This is a chunky blue howlite gemstone
Howlite is said to aid to insomnia, especially when caused by an overactive mind. Formulates ambitions and aids in achieving them. Howlite strengthens memory and stimulates desire for knowledge. It teaches patience and helps to eliminate rage, pain and stress. A calming stone, Howlite calms communication, facilitates awareness and encourages emotional expression.
My pieces have stories and adventures behind them. I love working with stones- their stories could be millions of years old before they became part of my story and now they are part of yours.
The series this pendant is a part of is called Cairns. Rock cairns are stacks of rocks that can be seen marking hiking trails. Rock stacking has carried spiritual meaning across cultures for centuries. The act of balancing stones carries with it a practice of patience and a physical effort of creating balance.
In a sense I'm still trying to find balance with these pendants. How do the stones work with one another? How do they need to be wrapped functionally and aesthetically? Its intention and patience and it is my version of a wearable cairn.
Each order comes nicely packaged for gift giving- even if you are gift giving yourself :)
