Everybody Sing! "Purple Rain, Purple Rain..."

LilYkaT StudiO listed the August Challenge entry for HandMadeMN - Purple Rain - Rock on Prince! LOL!

These earrings are elegant simplicity at its finest. The drops are of natural amythest/quartz geode, hand carved into a drop shape, accented by gunmetal stardust beads and aurora borealis swarovski rounds. They swing from oval gunmetal rings and drop 1-5/8" from the gunmetal-toned fish hook ear wires.

Created for the August HandMadeMN challenge. All items used in these earrings were also bought from local MN shops, making it truly a Minnesota creation - in honor of the 25th anniversary of Minnesota native Prince's Purple Rain.

Metaphysical properties of the stones are thought to be:

Amythest - Stone of spirituality and contentment. It is warm and cuddly as well as regal and ruling. It has been used to encourage and support sobriety & freedom from addictions. Calming, strong, protective qualities, healing, divine love, peace and inspiration. Enhances one's psychic and creative abilities.

Quartz - said to bring the energy of the stars into the soul. Harmonizing, purification, transmitting energy.

Glass - glass represents and carries the energies of transformation, merging of elements, rebirth, focus and communication. The colors of the glass bring the vibrations of those specific color energies.

*Metaphysical properties are listed for our own personal curiosity & for the interest of Etsy readers. Sources include: "Love is in the Earth" by Melody; "Crystal, Gem and Metal Magic" by Scott Cunningham; Avalon Crystals and various unattributed internet sources. Stones can enhance your enjoyment of life, but should not be used as a substitute for good physical and mental health care.
