I’ve made a SoulKu Connection

After a short stay-cation I have jumped back into my blog with both feet, and I hope to hit the ground running with SoulKu. I love their intimate approach to “feel-good” jewelry and their dedication to sustainability and human interaction. So let’s begin.

IMAG1588

Soul-Full of Light” is the theme of this batch of beauties, and. I’m just over the moon with how cute, delicate these little pieces are. I got to take 3 of them out for a test run, and my favorite has got to be Cracked Agate. IMAG1589As the card it was attached to states, it’s full of love and positivity and is steeped in “positivity, self-confidence and clarity”. While I can’t directly attribute the good vibes I felt to the necklace specifically, I can say with absolute clarity that it certainty didn’t hurt in those steps either.

 

 

IMAG1591My second favorite has got to be the Azure Blue Crystal. And while the card purports to “carry the energies of calm, inspiration and spirituality”, I can attest to the fact that it’s just darling around my neck, so the rest to me is a big bonus. Faceted to reflect the light, it’s a sight to behold on bright, sunny California days.

 

Last but by no means least is the Noreena Jasper. The card it was attached to says that it’s imbued with the “power to IMAG1590support,grounding, release of negative energies, and freedom”, I’ll state that it’s also imbued with a rich earthy beauty that just looks too cute around your neck. Almost like a cacao bean, I had to be careful hubby didn’t try to snack on it.

 

 

All three pieces come on a golden gossamer thread with metal clasps, and on thoughtful, inspirational cards, and in your choice of 16″, 17″, or 18″ lengths. 10% of each sale goes directly to Women for Women International, a worthwhile charity if there ever was one. I highly recommend clicking that link to learn more.

IMAG1071-1Like every other SoulKu piece sold, as well as the previous ones I’ve reviewed, the emphasis is on making, nurturing and maintaining personal relationships. Too often we get caught up in our digital lives, and forget that we’re physical creatures that crave touch, talk, and interaction, on a physical and spiritual level. With all the hustle and bustle in our lives, sometimes we can unintentionally forgo what should  matter the most to us:. Each other. SoulKu wants to remind us, with their jewelry, Eco-friendly cards, and simple envelopes that in the end, reaching out and touching someone matters more that whatever “update” our myriad of devices tell us are happening all day, every day. Thanks for that, SoulKu. I hope each and every one of you has the chance to be “reminded” by them as well.

I SoulKu, Do You Too?

SoulKu_Logo

When I was contacted by SoulKu to review a few of their pieces, I was flattered. While I get to try a lot of yummy treats, awesome face and body products,  as well as wonderful cosmetics, things I can hold fast to are not that common. SoulKu was nice enough of send 5 different pieces, as well as other little treats for me to share. More on that later.

IMAG1067-1

For now, let’s dive into my first 2 SoulKu pieces, the SoulKu Intention Necklaces. This is a fabulous, fresh twist on an old idea: daily affirmation cards. The idea here is that you write your goal, idea, or inspiration on the card, put it somewhere you’ll always see it, and have a pretty little reminder around your neck all day as well. How cool is that? SoulKu also went the extra mile and made sure your necklaces are infused with the power of either Amethyst (for empowerment & achievement) or Amazonite (for inspiration & hope), so you can choose which power stone you feel best suits your daily need.  Priced at $21, you could easily make both part of your routine. Not feeling the need for amethyst or Amazonite? How about Carnelian (for motivation) or Sodalite (for self-esteem)? There’s really something for everyone. Each 16 , 17, or 18 inch necklace has 5 5-6 millimeter faceted stones hand threaded on a golden nylon cord, with silver-plate hardware. Made in Asheville, North Carolina, this is a “Made in the U.S.A.” product that you’ll be proud to wear prominently. It’s a simple piece that goes with any look or style. Understated and delicate, but still eye-catching.

Even the Intention Cards are well thought out, and eco-friendly. The packages are eco-friendly. They are committed to using local vendors where possible, they donate a portion of each sale to various charities… I mean, do these people have their stuff together or what? Even the number of stones is chosen to maximize the good vibrations this little beauty provides. And did I mention? It just looks great too.

Everything here is clearly thought through, as (to quote their website):

“… SoulKu & Infinite Possibilities

The word “Ku” in Japanese translates to “a place of infinite possibility.” We like to think of our company as just that, “A place where, guided by our soul’s calling, anything is possible.” Our products reflect that idea and are meant to inspire deeper connection and action in others… ”

How ’bout that?

SoulKu is all about personal connections. Keeping things close, inspiring others, giving back. Human touch in an impersonal world. That’s an idea we should all get behind. We spend far too long staring at out various sundry screens and not enough time interacting with the world and the people around us. While it might be a lot to ask of one pretty little necklace to help us all reach out and just touch the person next to us instead of texting them, it sure is a nice thing to remind us to start.

This is the end. Beautiful friends, the end of our Soul Journey

But I hope yours is just beginning.

SP32-20140221-024302


Today is a sad day, friends and followers. Today is the day my Soul Journey comes to an end. Well, kind of. You see, Soul Journey Jewelry was so kind and so generous they sent a plethora of goodies to review. But alas, the day has come when I am reviewing the last of these gemological goodies. And don’t think for a minute the last is the least. In fact, it may be the most!

DSCN4528This one is a doozy, a wrap-style bracelet called Sweet Serenity, packed with amethyst, tiger’s eye, and Botswana agate faceted gems. We’ve covered the benefits of two of these three gems here, and here, so feel free to step into Wom-derful’s Way-Back Machine and take a peek at the bountiful benefits these gems may provide. Amethyst is new to this party, though. A type of quartz whose name dates back to the ancient Greeks, amethyst is a semi-precious stone often found in birthstone jewelry. Traditionally light violet to deep purple, it owes it’s color to irradiation and other trace “impurities” from surrounding rock. Thought to impart a sober mind, it is the stone of love that can carry the energy of fire, passion, creativity and spirituality, all the while tempering your moods with,well…Serenity.

 

 

DSCN4528bPacked together in one gorgeous 22″ long bracelet, it easily wraps around my wrist 3 times, or once around my neck! That’s right, this bracelet moonlights as a necklace (or is it a necklace that doubles as a bracelet?), so how you wear it is up to you. Hand-crafted to order in California, USA, by someone who clearly spent ample time on this labor of love. The golden braided nylon sets off the lavender amethyst, the browns and golds in the tiger’s eye, and the striated rainbow that is Botswana agate perfectly. The end “clasp” is even rocking a Botswana agate. How cool! Faceted gems from 6mm all the way up to 10mm, customized wearing options..I mean, what’s not to love?!



DSCN4526I want to take a minute here, though, to personally thank Soul Journey Jewelry and Jill Boylan for the opportunity to review and promote these pieces. I love to give a nudge to small businesses, and especially ones who work as hard and deserve your business, as Jill most certainly does. I’m sure if she wanted to do these “cheaper” and of lower quality, she could outsource her production to other countries, but she doesn’t. She keeps everything here is the U.S. and never skimps for a minute on the jewelry she’s making for you. If there was even one company I emplore you to support, it’s Soul Journey Jewelry. The world would be a better place if more people followed their example.

Soul Journey: Welcome Spring with the Faith in Yourself Bracelet

SP32-20140221-024302

Our Soul Journey continues today with another jaw-dropper, “Faith in Yourself”, featuring amazonite and aquamarine. For you March babies, this one is also on sale on Open Sky. 😉

IMAG0365

Surprisingly, amazonite doesn’t much come from the Amazon anymore (although you might find some on Amazon.com, tee-hee). No, after coming almost exclusively from Chelyabinsk, Russia it now comes primarily out of Colorado, USA. A type of microcline feldspar, it is easily fractured and therefore not so easy to work with. Sometimes called the “Stone of Courage”, it empowers and embolden while tempering rash behavior a day soothing the soul. Lauded for healing and prosperity since Mesopotamia times, this is one to not be taken lightly.

But we’re not done yet. This bracelet also features aquamarine, one of the” Precious Four” precious gems of this planet, the others being diamond, sapphire and ruby. Heady company indeed. A type of beryl (emerald is another) mined in Columbia and Brazil, this gem is the official gemstone of those born in March and is said to bestow peace, serenity and truth upon it’s wearer. This is a powerful 1-2 punch of a bracelet, all the while just looking stylish and pretty on your wrist.

IMAG0364

Like all of Soul Journey’s jewelry, this is hand made and woven with golden nylon thread, finished with jeweled ends and features 8mm faceted gems. Make to order in California, USA, this is a winner from tip to tip. From the Mini Power bracelet collection, this one is made to fit almost any wrist, and is fully adjustable from 7-9 1/2″. Did I mention it’s on sale on Open Sky? Like, right now? At around $40, there is NO reason to pass up on this little beauty. Go. Get it now. I’ll still be here when you get back.
