Necklace – “Ranjana”

“Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae”

DSCN6329

Ranjana

Ranjana charms one with a pleasing simplicity. Made of Magenta Onyx, Fluorite, Watermelon Jade and a Green Onyx pendant, this necklace is simple, traditional, yet made rich, by its vibrant colours. Magenta and Green alternate in a very appealing pattern, with striking silver spacers. The hues deepen centrepiece, as the lovely double-hued Watermelon Jades take over to showcase a pale green Onyx pendant, that matches well with the pale green Fluorites.

While Fluorite is a mystical stone that brings in mental order and clarity, *detoxifies one, and and provides much healing on the emotional and spiritual planes, Onyx is a stone that offers physical protection, security and stability.

Watermelon Jade is essentially colour-enhanced Jade, that exhibits a lovely dual shade of green and maroon. Jade is a stone of good health and longevity.

Green gemstones are associated with the Anaahata (heart) chakra.

Magenta gemstones are associated with the Ajna (third-eye), & Sahasraara, (crown) chakras.

Dimensions – 8 mm beads, 20 inches long

* Please note that Fluorite needs to be washed in running and cleansed more often (maybe once a week), than other stones, due to its propensity to suck up and store negative energy. This only means that Fluorite detoxifies and absorbs toxic energy and stores it unto itself and seals shut. It doesn’t let it out. For it to continue to heal, it needs to be cleansed regularly.

Sonika

A short simple, yet attractive Yellow Jade and Orange Carnelian necklace, Sonika is nascent, bright and beautiful as the rays of the rising sun!

At an emotional level, Yellow and orange stones energize the mind, and uplift the spirit. They boost joy, cheer, mirth, creativity, intelligence, vitality, a zest for life! Stones associated with these chakras usher in good luck, and a dynamic energy (increased Prana)…. Physically, no wonder, therefore, they relate to the central core of the physical human body, – a region that decides the strength of one’s mind and heart!

Sonika, in her own small measure, promises you the same!

Orange gemstones correspond to the Swaadhisthana, or the root chakra.

Yellow gemstones correspond to the Manipura, or the solar plexus chakra.

Dimensions – 8 mm stones, 18 inches long

Necklace – “Rohana”

“Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae”

DSCN6308

Rohana

Experience a session of meditation with the aroma of fresh sandalwood incense engulfing the space around you…. See what it does to your senses.

Translate this feeling into stone. It is this very transcendental, mild and relaxing feeling, that Rohana characterizes! Picture Jasper and Camel Jasper are stones that speak of strength, sustainability, and endurance.

Rohana, is a beautiful combination of colours and characteristics. With a range of mustards and pale browns, the stones strongly connect one to the earth, and therefore the Mooladhara chakra.

Besides the visually resemblance of Picture Jaspers, and Camel Jaspers to the mild softness of sandalwood beads, it is the property of these two Jaspers to help endure long arduous journeys of life. Crazy Lace Agate is a stone that uplifts one’s spirits, and brings joy, mirth and laughter! (seriously! I have experienced it!) Howlite and White Agate are stones that tame raging emotional disturbances and bring a calm to the mind.

The pale browns are interspersed with whites, beige and silverine beads, imparting it a subtle classy look. With a pair of Camel Jaspers, Howlites and Crazy Lace Agates in the centre-piece, a gorgeous piece of Camel Jasper serves a pendant!

Compared to music, Rohana feels like a distant yet persistent strain of serene music whose notes linger, long after it has stopped playing….

As a fragrance, it continues to haunt your moods, long after the incense has burned out….

Brown gemstones are associated with the Mooladhara, or the root chakra.

White gemstones are associated with the Sahasraara, or the crown chakra.

Dimensions – 8 mm & 9 mm beads, 20 inches long

Necklace – “Shyaama Tara”

“Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae”

DSCN6298

Shyaama Tara

Shyaama Tara, is an aesthetic and dynamic combination of Red Onyx, Indian Agate, Howlite, and Tree Agate, named after the Buddhist Goddess ‘Green Tara’.

‘Shyaama’ means dark or (in this context) green, and ‘Tara’, refers to the Divine Feminine Principle, in Buddhism. Green Tara is called Shyaama Tara, in Sanskrit.

Blessed by the Goddess, who symbolizes the Pristine Spirit of the trees, woods, flowers, fruits, butterflies, birds, and the wind, Shyaama Tara, is born as a gentle child of Nature…

Indian Agate is a stone that comes from the mountains, carried down to river beds by the flowing waters. It is most often found during the period of the full moon. Through its travel, it catches the vibrations of the earth, water, moon and the sun! It emanates a mysterious range of healing properties… No wonder, it had been used widely by our ancients…. No stone can possibly exhibit this stunning range of colours, as the Indian Agate!

These beautiful Agates combine with a set of Red Onyx stones to achieve a beautiful pattern. And then the Howlites strike a beautiful contrast to the greens and the reds. With silverine beads in the centrepiece, the smooth alabaster Tree Agate stands out as an imposing pendant. The effect is truly picturesque!

This a splendid combination necklace that addresses the Sahasraara (crown) through the white Howlites & Tree Agate, Anahata (heart) through the Indian Agate, and the Mooladhara (root) chakra through the Red Onyx.

Much like the Goddess, Shyaama Tara symbolizes the feminine principle she has the power to create, nurture, protect, create compassion, love and harmony and good energy!

Dimensions – 8 mm beads, 18 inches long
