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. 😉

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.

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.

To Clarify Your Fashion, Wear Soul Journey Jewelry

SP32-20140221-024302

I got the opportunity to try out and review a few pieces from this wonderful company, Soul Journey Jewelry. Come along with me on this fantastic voyage, won’t you?

DSCN4526

The first piece I want to review is called “To Clarify Destiny Wear Labradorite”, and this is, in my opinion one of the most stunning pieces from Soul Journey Jewelry. It happens to be a favorite of Jill Boylan, their creator, as well. Jill had a previous jewelry line, Lapis Lois, but wanted to move on to something with a purpose. “Soul Journey Jewelry is a collection of stylish amulets with spiritual power…” So let’s have look see, shall we?

IMAG0378

Labradorite comes originally from Labrador, in North Eastern Canada, but is also found elsewhere. A type of feldspar, it is one of the more colorful of the volcanic rocks found in nature. Labradorite has it’s own type of iridescence, called labradorescence. From fully opaque to semi-clear, Labradorite comes in a rainbow of colors, but primarily pale greens and blues, as seen above.

Inuit peoples believed that labradorite was actually frozen pieces of the Aurora Borealis fallen to earth, imbued with power and granting the wearer insight and direction. Labradorite is thought to be a magical stone and has been used by mystics, shamans and holy people for centuries for healing, discovery, detoxification and inner abilities.

Handcrafted in California, USA of genuine polished, faceted labradorite, German nylon thread, and made to order, each piece is unique, no two will ever be alike. The one you buy will be yours and yours alone, and no one will ever have one exactly like it. Such is the beauty of natural stone and this jewelry’s handmade quality. Fully adjustable from 7″-9 1/2″, it will easily fit just about every wrist. This bracelet, from the glitter collection, is denoted by its rose-gold plated, jeweled pave bead at its center. A beautiful touch. It fits any style, and sensibility, and would look amazing on your wrist. Soul Journey is a company that we should all be supporting, a small business that dreams big.
