I love projects that celebrate love!
A couple of months ago, I received a bespoke order for an anniversary gift. My client wanted to give her husband something sentimental and symbolic for their 8th wedding anniversary.
They've been through many challenges in their relationship but managed to pull through and strengthen their relationship. She wanted to represent that.
We came up with the idea of a beaded bracelet featuring 8 as the sign of eternity. The beads are made of hematite. The mineral absorbs toxic emotions and reduces stress, anxiety and worry. But it also has body healing properties - it cleanses the blood and supports good circulation. It's known as the "Stone for the Mind", promoting good focus, creativity, optimism and trust.
The eternity element is made of silver. In spirituality, silver is believed to protect against evil spirits and repel negativity, bringing patience and perseverance. As a metal, silver amplifies the qualities of gemstones, crystals and minerals it's connected to. That's why it's such a good idea to combine silver with your most desired stones or crystals on a piece of symbolic or healing jewellery.
The knot on the bracelet represents the connection between the two souls joined in marriage. It is adjustable to allow flexibility and freedom in the relationship.
What a lovely way to confirm your eternal commitment in love!
