As with all my prayer beads, a lot of thought goes into the design as there is a lot of symbolism and meaning in the number of stones and charms and also the colour and properties of the stones. It has been designed with magickal numbers in mind, specifically the number 4 to represent the elements, fire, earth, water and sky the number 9 for spellwork or chanting.
The healing crystals that have been chosen to represent Gaia are all earth colours with wonderful grounding and protecting properties.
The OM charm was chosen as it is considered to be the primordial sound of creation. It is the original vibration of the universe.
The Lotus flower and leaf symbolises the beauty and growth of nature.

• ABOUT MOTHER EARTH / GAIA •
Earth goddesses have been worshiped by many cultures around the globe for thousands and thousands of years, long before the first recorded mythologies. Throughout the ancient Indo-European world, the idea that earth was intrinsically linked with femininity and sky was linked with masculinity was a key spiritual and cultural concept.
The Ancient Greeks worshiped Gaia as the great mother of all creation, and believed that all other life was born from her. The Roman equivalent of Gaia is Terra.
In Norse mythology, Jörð is the personification of the earth. She is a jötunn who is counted among the Æsir goddesses, and is the mother of Thor. Nerthus is another Germanic pagan goddess who was one of the Vanir deities, and was regarded as the Earth Mother.

I work with several small businesses & artisan suppliers in Asia and Europe to source the components of my pieces. I also package & ship in the most environmentally respectful way possible.
Obviously, I need to get your items to you in perfect condition but I am also are aware of so much waste when it comes to packaging. My solution is to wrap your order in recycled tissue paper and instead of a box or little bag that you will probably never use again, I send each piece in a lovely canvas cosmetics or jewellery bag that I have designed especially for my creations. (If you don't think you would reuse this bag please let me know and I will just send in a normal protective cloth bag.)
I also realise that not everyone wants a lot of printed material with their purchase. I do give information in the listing description as to the healing properties of the gemstones. However sometimes it is nice to have it printed to refer to or to be able to include it when sending as a gift, so I offer an option in the drop-down menu for you to choose whether to have a card included with the details of the components and their benefits.
Please note that I do use vintage metal findings & components in some of my designs, so some natural tarnish, patina & wear is present that adds to their beautifully unique character. Natural fractures do occur within certain gemstones, and this is not indicative of damage but is a characteristic of natural (non-synthetic) stones. I do my best to represent these characteristics in my photos as accurately as possible.
I only make one piece at a time so the one you see in the photograph is the one you will get. This also means that once it is sold it can be a while before I remake it depending on what I have in stock or it may not be able to be remade as I buy my supplies in small quantities and sometimes cannot find them again. If it truly is unique and a 'one off' it will say so on the listing.
Thank you for supporting my business, and for choosing to shop small. I appreciate you more than words can say!
