I’ve been using my instagram stories to post and share about this, but I also want to leave this here on my blog. Yes I will often say the wrong thing, but then I will listen and I will learn. Usually I choose to repost the words of Black people I respect doing the work, but today I will share some of my own. It is important not to center whiteness, but it is also important not to stay silent.
I've been working on updating my shop this week and there are over 30 new styles to choose from.
Many of the stones in these pieces were found on my trip to Tuscon in February. Like so many of us small business owners business came to a screeching halt in March with everything being closed. I'm so glad I already had a website and Etsy so at least people could shop online with me.
Emerald comes from the Greek word smargos, meaning green stone, but the oldest known mine is Egyptian and dates back to 3000 BCE. It was traditionally bound to the left arm to protect travelers.
Emerald is a stone for love, luck and prosperity. It helps us cultivate the courage it takes to love and be loved. You can wear it as a reminder to stay open and get comfortable with your vulnerability. It is a stone of abundance helping you draw in abundance in all forms. This stone can help connect you to Divine Love, compassion and gratitude. It is a heart chakra stone and known as the "Stone of Successful Love".
