Labradorite Love and More

Sometimes you need a little Magic in your life ! This season Labradorite is one of my favorite stones, so any pretty cabochons that I can get my hands on will be posted in my shop. I love that each stone has its own lines, and flashes of color. These ones are mainly blue/green flashes, but the diamond shape marquee stone has some purple and orange in it.

A bit about Labradorite and it's Healing Properties:
    Chakras - Base Chakra
Zodiac - LeoScorpioSagittarius
Planet - Uranus
Element - Water
Typical colours - Pale green, blue, colourless, grey-white: with iridescent blue or gold flashes

Powerful in revealing the truth behind illusions, Labradorite banishes fears and insecurities, and strengthens faith in the self and trust in the universe.  It stimulates the imagination and calms an overactive mind, developing enthusiasm and new ideas

It is thought that Labradorite symbolizes the moon and sun and has been found to be a constituent of moon rock. Labradorites metaphor for its purpose: to help reveal one's spiritual destiny. Labradorite is the gemstone of magic, and it awakens in those who carry or wear it the awareness of one’s innate magical powers. This iridescent stone is highly mystical and protective, a bringer of light. It raises consciousness and connects with universal energies. Labradorite deflects unwanted energies from the aura, and prevents energy leakage. It can take you into another world or into other lives. This stone stimulates intuition and psychic gifts, including the art of right timing, bringing messages from the unconscious mind to the surface and facilitating their understanding. It may promote feelings of inner worth, offer inspiration and boost energy. It can assist with change, promote strength, and help you attain your goals.

I hope you love Labradorite as much as I do. This year my shop has some clay and stone pieces made by hand by myself. I also have some thick wire hand forged sterling silver and Labradorite pieces as well as some intricate wire wrapping in silver plated metal. Feel free to check out my shop this Christmas season for some incredible Labradorite necklaces in Silver Plated and Sterling Silver.

Have a great weekend!

ROM Suprise

This summer I wanted to visit some of the places I may not usually visit, like the Royal Ontario Museum. I had no reason to visit in the past, so I really had not been inside the ROM since Elementary school. Unfortunately I did not give myself a lot of time to explore, and I did not look at the map before I started to wander.  I spent a lot of my time in the other exhibitions of the museum, but then my husband peeked in the gallery map and told me they had a Gem exhibit. So the last 15 minutes were exploring this room.

I love working with rocks and minerals and my jewelry has slowly shifted to selling these pretty pieces. The Rom Gem exhibit has so many beautiful pieces which I tried to take photos of with my crapy old cell phone. I did the best I could do.  I definitely will be returning to the ROM in the fall for another peak so I can get a longer and better view of these incredible gifts from the earth. If you are in Toronto and you love Rocks and Minerals then you have to check out this exhibit.

Summer Catch Up

What a wonderful summer I have been having! The weather has been great and I have had the time to get out. Check out my Instagram for photos and to see what I have been up to, like my trip to the ROM, Center Island, Brickworks, and more. I know I have been missing from my blog, and I have been posting most of my photos on my Instagram page just because it has been a bit easier for me to keep up with.

I have been adding a lot of new product to my LOVE n LAVISH shop for back to school and gearing up for the busy Christmas rush. I also have been teaching myself a bit of metalsmithing, and my goal is to have some beautiful copper and silver rings made for you, and listed up in my shop for Christmas time. Check out my shop for my current stock.

I hope you have a great weekend and I thought I would share that I am going to be holding a Giveaway in the next day or two, so stay tuned!

What is your favorite healing stone and why?

What's New in June

I hope that you have been enjoying the beginning of summer. We have been getting a lot of rain, but there have been some nice sunny hot days to enjoy, like today.

I have been updating my shop slowly and even changing my stock a bit. Here are some fresh new items in my shop, such as a personally hand sawed boho cactus, lots of healing stones with some real beauties like the Emerald and Lapis and Citrine I have added.  I will be adding a few more bracelets to my shop, but right now I have a stunning blue stacking bracelet and a lovely ceramic yoga OM encircled by a lotus flower. I hope you see something you like from my shop, and if you do, please enjoy this 25% off coupon : Instagive25  shared here on my blog and Instagram.  Also if you are wondering where I have been and why my blog entries are so sparse, check out my Instagram page and you can see much more of what i'm up to.
