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

But I hope yours is just beginning.

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’s Strength of Tiger’s Eye, and It’s GORGEOUS!

SP32-20140221-024302                                                                                                                                                                                                  Okay, stop rocking out in your head to that Survivor song from the 80’s. This isn’t about that. It’s about Soul Journey Jewelry and another stunner of a bracelet I was lucky enough to get to review. This time, It’s about Personal Power and the Tiger’s Eye gemstone. Sourced primarily from South Africa, Tiger’s Eye is gemologically-speaking a member of the extended quartz family. Noted for it’s silky-smooth sheen, Tiger’s Eye is also noted for it’s chatoyancy, or “cat’s eye effect”. Due to this, the sheen from a Tiger’s eye gem will be slightly different when viewed from different angles. IMAG0360 Tiger’s Eye has been renowned for centuries for it’s ability to grant the wearer strength, insight, spiritual balance, mental focus and confidence. Roman soldiers even used to wear it to grant them protection in battle! Thought to help with a number of ailments including asthma and heart disease, it is sometimes a gift to one known to be in ill health. This beauty is paired with onyx, also from the quartz family. Onyx is said to increase one’s power, focus, resistance and confidence. Finally, rounding out your gemstone power trio is Golden Agate, prized from the dawn of civilization for it’s beauty and thought to grant protection, strength, and brings a grounding to the wearer. There is some serious juju running through your wrist wearing this bracelet, and thanks to Jill Boylan, you can look stunning wearing it too.  With the stacking fashion craze in right now, I love stacking these on my wrist to get a very stunning look.  There is not a time I go out with Soul Jewelry bracelets and not get asked about them!

IMAG0359Like all of Jill’s creations, this is handcrafted in the U.S.A., in California. Made to order of the finest hand-selected gemstones available. Matched for color and clarity, this bracelet alternates between smooth and faceted gems, all bound lovingly together with hand-knotted nylon thread. Graduating from 10mm gems, to 8mm, and fully adjustable from 7″-9 1/2″, it will fit any wrist. You can see and feel the love that went into creating each piece of Soul Journey Jewelry, and I feel that Jill’s creations are worth the investment.
