I love crystals, so I decided to make necklaces and other ornaments with them.
Visit the shop page if you are interested.
Why crystals and textile?
I love crystals for their physical appearance and their earthly connection. I am fascinated by all the symbolism and meaning attached to them.
I also like to use textile for the necklace itself (hemp and cotton, or just hemp), as I enjoy its warm feeling.
How to order a necklace?
I am displaying on this page examples of creations I have done for myself or for others.
If you want a necklace, send me a message, or visit my shop page!
You can also request specific one: let me know which stone you want, and the colours you would prefer for your necklace and macrame pouch. Please be aware that there will be a short delay in this case. I will keep you updated of the process.
Rocks, gems, crystals?
Let me try to explain it simply, with my humble knowledge.
Rocks are grains of minerals = crystalline solids (crystals), formed from a chemical compound, held together by chemical bounds.
Rock = basic mineral
Crystal = material whose elements (molecules, etc) have a highly ordered structure, creating geometrical shapes.
Crystals = pretty rocks
Gem = mineral of pure/high quality, more rare. Often cut, polished, engraved, etc.
Gems = rare/expensive rocks
I am not a scientist! I tried to explain it as best as I could, but I would recommend googling this if you are interested in this topic. 🙂
Crystals and their meanings
Crystals are known for their varied properties.
Whether you believe in them or not, I would say having a crystal necklace on you is like having your talisman close to you, that helps you move forward.
I gathered all the information below from my favourite crystals shop in the UK, “The Psychic Tree”.
