“Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae”
“A note on the VSESHA collection” (special beaded jewellery for all occasions!)
As all of you know, the word “Visesha” in Sanskrit means ‘special’, ‘unique’, or auspicious’. I wished to start a line of jewellery that was special, yet suitable for all occasions, and one that needs to be infused with Divine Grace…
Thus with the blessings of my ParamaGuru Avathar Sri Seshadri Swamigal, and
Sathguru Sri Rajalinga Swamigal, the VSESHA collection began!
All of the necklaces from the VSesha collection, are carefully handcrafted, and personalized. They are strung in time tested durable beading material, using authentic, good quality gemstones, the best quality spacers and clasps. The necklaces are easy to maintain, comfortable to wear, with no sharp edges, and neat cord ends and clasps, that don’t mess up with your hair or clothes! They are a blend of the traditional and the trendy, to suit different kinds of attire. Each necklace is cleansed and energized through Reiki, before being handed over, or delivered.

How it all began…
It was March 2014. As if by Providence, I was rushed into a series of Reiki attunements. After being initiated into Reiki, and some interested research on different kinds of crystals and gemstones, I was tempted to buy some for myself. Over the months, I did have a collection of semiprecious beads from a handful of bracelets I had purchased online.
Although I did gain some knowledge about their healing properties, I still wasn’t too sure about that. I adored my bracelets, and religiously wore them for the most part, for their beautiful feel, until I sensed, my happy times were quickly passing…
My coming years were gruelling.
June 2014. I lost my a loved one.
March 2015. I lost my dog.
June 2015. I lost my mother to cancer.
September 2015. I lost a loved one.
My 10 year old son, suffered difficult health issues.
I was so badly hit, to the point that I couldn’t stand up to face all this!
I slipped into a major, long-term clinical depression. My health deteriorated. I did not want to live like that. I did my bit of self-healing everyday…
One day my dear husband handed me my bracelets and reminded me that I needed to pull myself up again for my own sake!
I wore my bracelets again. It was from then on did I realize that “Time could indeed heal, through its passing….” I started to notice that I was often able to raise myself from sinking feelings. I was able to feel a little better.
In retrospect, I remember I had 3 constant companions – citrine, pyrite and crazy lace agate.
When I wore citrine, I felt ‘a light at the end of the tunnel’, or ‘a ray of sunshine’.
When I wore ‘golden pyrite’, I felt a strong comforting stability throughout the day.
When I wore ‘crazy lace agate’ I felt I could smile!
These 3 beautiful gemstones led me back into the mystical experience of their own harmonious presence. It was then that I started to admire my crystals more for their steadfast solidarity, than the ‘look and feel’ factor! As I believed in them more, I could feel their vibrations stronger. I felt a sense of stability and security, all through my difficult times. That I felt was indeed Divine Grace!
Soon I grew better and stronger, emotionally and physically. Thanks to all my dear crystals.
January 2017. I went back to my bracelets. I felt I needed to give them due respect. The beads were a little dull and plain looking. It felt okay with me to have them as they were. Upon a little more thought, I felt they could be beautifed. A little beautification wouldn’t hurt! So I took them to the jewellers to make some fancy necklaces.
Besides the whopping fee I had to pay the jeweller for getting a necklace made, I was in for a major shocking disappointment when the jeweler handed me the piece, (it was an atrocious ratio of 10 spacer beads for 2 gemstone beads!) It looked pathetic! I felt very sad that my stones were not given their due! I ran home and snapped open the neckalce, and gathered back all the beads into their box.
I felt a little sad, unable to make anything better of my beads. Then, one morning, it struck me, why not try my hands at making my necklace myself?! In a moment of passion, I rushed to the local crafts store to buy some jewellery findings and beading wires. It was good store, and I shopped to my satisfaction.
I had no prior training in jewellery making, nor any knowledge about any of the materials I had bought. I just passioantely wanted to see my first necklace! And so, I just started!
My first necklace was a big hit with my heart and soul! I felt so happy, I wished to wear it all my life! Then I envisioned a beautiful life for all my stones. I could see some hope….
Soon, I took to elaborately reading up, researching, and experimenting with the different kinds of materials, techniques and patterns, before finalizing on a necklace! It was painstaking work, but a very fulfilling, and productive one!
The inspiration behind this venture was the power of these crystals. I wish others could experience, and feel for themselves, what I experienced, in the manner that I benefited.
Gemstones are not just pretty stones.
They have a power and vibration of their own…
Hold one close to yourself, to feel it!
Today I feel proud to leave you with my choicest collection of handcrafted necklaces….
