So striking and unique! I've hand-cut this rare Peanut Obsidian focal stone and set it on a 20mm wide x 2mm thick hammered sterling silver bracelet cuff. The bezel walls are fine silver, the claws are 14k gold and the cuff has been finished with a rustic matte brushed texture. The whole bracelet weights 71.2 grams and will fit a 6.5" wrist.
Obsidian is a grounding stone and helps one connect with the earth. It’s protective and disperses unloving thoughts and brings clarity to a healer. It focuses inner vision and helps see the required course of action. It is also a birthstone for Scorpio.
Silver is closely linked to the moon and is a metal of clear light, of the psychic mind, of loving and healing, of wisdom, self-control and reflection. It is said to have calming and cleansing properties while amplifying the energy of any gemstone it comes in contact with. It also symbolizes wealth and prosperity.
Gold’s beauty symbolizes wealth and prosperity. It is also said to facilitate communication between humans and a spiritual world. Gold has been associated with the numinous including the sun, divinity and eternal life throughout history.
Please note that many of the stones I work with have natural inclusions that may show up as cracks on the surface of the stone. This is ok and is part of the natural beauty of the stone. This stone is stabilized and backed for support. I am working with Mother Nature and natural stones, therefore exact sizes, shapes and colours vary. I take my photos in natural light to capture the true colour of my pieces. However various computer screens may change the colours.
