How to wear it
The colour combination of metallic charcoal grey and luminous juicy orangey red makes this necklace suitable for every season. I have purposely used the red colour of the faceted carnelian as a leading thread throughout the necklace and create a rythm as the eye travels along the different sections of the chain necklace.
It is approx 1.05m long! giving you plenty of options to wear. You can wear it extra long and layer it with other shorter necklaces. You can also wrap it twice around your neck. There again you have 2 choices, either keep the 2 strands of similar lenght or wear one strand shorter and one longer. See pictures for styling ideas.
You can even fold it in a pouch in your handbag so that you have it at hand whenever you need that instant uplift.
Materials & their benefits
Handforged using solid sterling silver and natural quality hematite and carnelian stones.
The stone beads have been thread onto silver wire. That way you won’t risk stretching the necklace, especially when cleaning it – see Care section below. It also gives the necklace more personality in its movement and flow.
Hematite has very strong grounding energy. It also has a cooling and calming effect, as well as helps develop concentration and focus. It is a zodiac stone for Aries and Aquarius.
Carnelian is a stabilising stone that restores vitality and motivation, and stimulates creativity. It helps in trusting yourself and your perceptions. Carnelian is a zodiac stone for Virgo.
Silver provides a steadying influence. It performs a balancing act by drawing negativity from the body while transferring the positive energies of other minerals.
approx 105cm long.
As with any piece of jewellery, when you don’t wear it, keep it in a box or pouch, ideally separate from your other jewellery to avoid scratches.
Safe to clean at home yourself – simply wash with lukewarm water and mild soap. Leave to soak a couple of minutes. Do not scrub or rub. The dirt will fall off at the bottom of the container. Rinse under clear lukewarn water. Pat dry with a soft clean cloth and leave to dry completely before wearing again, or storing.
Do not scrub or rub as this will affect the surface of the metal.
Avoid putting makeup and other beauty products after putting your jewellery on, as residues will build up in the little recesses, making it more difficult to clean.
