Anyway, I finally was able to make a few pieces with all the pretty stuff I was sent.
The Carnelian stone (rusty orange) is a stone of creativity, courage and individuality, and has protection energies. Lapis also offers protection. In the ancient Egyptian cultures lapis was buried with some of their dead. It was believed to offer protection, and...in some cultures was valued more highly than gold!
The Eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol. It also offers protection in addition to royal power and good health. I loved putting these three things together; carnelian, lapis and The Eye of Horus, because all offer protection. This is something all of us need as we go about our daily activities and travels.
I then had to make some earrings to match....
This last piece I was able to make are made of the frosted red glass beads, turquoise glass beads, and sapphire color glass beads. I also added the big gold rectangular gold beads and added some silver glittery beads I had in my personal stash.
