Religious Bracelets and other treasures

religiousbracelet8

I may have mentioned in another post that I was brought up Catholic.  Well I have just bought a beautiful Fellowship Bracelet from a wonderful eBay seller  the Immaculata   for a good friend of mine in the USA.   It is a unique chunky bracelet with charms, as above.

Now I’ve gone back to the site & purchased for myself a pretty multi-coloured stone chip bracelet.  It has a small stone butterfly and stone cross.  When I was younger my favorite bracelet was one with a stone cross!  It is beautiful.  I love multi-colours too!

Head over now to look at the amazing array of items for yourself in the United States, or another country – –   or for a Friend or family member.   UPDATE:  Sadly (for me) I did not get the bracelet above, because the Seller could not post it to me in Australia due to shipping constraints.  If I was in the USA the same country as the seller, I would have been able to purchase it.

Black Onyx – stone for protection

12 mm faceted Black Onyx rondelles, rose gold beaten beads and a 12 mm lustrous cultured pearl – 21 inches length.

Black Onyx is said to bestow self control, decision making, intuition and protection. It is a powerful protection stone as it absorbs negative energy of people to release mental stress and promote emotional well-being.

Black Onyx is associated with the planet Saturn, and will bring a positive vibe for those born in the shadow of the planet Saturn. It is said to be a stone for the Leo zodiac sign.  Well I am a quadruple Virgo but I have the Moon in Leo when I was born!

Black Onyx is very easily scratched if not handled with care even easier to clean the stone by using the commercial jewelry polish. Once polished, the piece should be washed with hot water and dried with a soft cloth. A drop of olive oil can produce beautiful light of the stone. Rinse water can also clean the dirt but do not ever soak the stone because it can fade the color. Avoid two stones together to avoid friction. Suggested to avoid the heat, light or excessive chemicals to extend durability of the stone.

I am selling this necklace because I have so many necklaces & brooches, I really need to down-size.  This beauty although gorgeous and energizing is not suitable for every-day wear for me, as I work in records management ( often in casual wear, packing & moving around boxes ) and I don’t go out alot to functions or places where I would wear this.  Even if I did, I have many other necklaces which I would rather wear.   Use the contact form if you would like to purchase this item for $80 AUD ( I bought it for over $100 AUD ) plus postage.

Adora Belle Boutique

Above are photos of my wonderful new Bracelets.

They were made by a talented Australian, Natasha, who has an eBay Store!

Adora Belle Boutique

Recently I have been quite drawn to gemstones and the mineral world, and attracting some to me, as well as purchasing some items.  Recently, a friend at work gave me some beautiful polished Chakra stones.

African Turqoise is not a real turqoise, but is a teal coloured Jasper.  These bracelets are amazing.  The stones are large and the bracelets comfortable to wear, and look gorgeous.  I feel lucky to have them, and I can say that I felt a nice energy when just looking at these bracelets on the eBay store.  Rest assured that if you purchase a Bracelet or item from Adora Belle Boutique, that you will love it.  I will love wearing my bracelets.

Jacqui from Holistic Harmony provided a wonderful “Crystal Healing Directory” which I attach below, if you would like to look up the healing / beneficial properties of the various crystals / stones.  In my experience, the beautiful amazing gems from our natural world do amplify various energetic aspects of our human bodies, so can benefit us by wearing them, or having them near us!

I have just ordered a beautiful pink Rhodocrosite bracelet from an Etsy seller, with a Virgo charm.  You can select a Charm to be affixed to your Bracelet, and it will be sent to you post haste by a lovely seller in Miami, U.S.A.    See  https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/HealingAtlas and what is also great, I think, is that you can choose a bracelet length and get a quote on “shipping” costs to your country, and the postage cost is very reasonable, given the high postage prices from the U.S.   See photos below.

Well, when I found out that Rhodocrosite is not only the most gorgeous amazing color ( one of my favorites – pink ) but it also helps to heal the heart or the emotions, I thought this is also for me.  So, I have “splashed” out on the pink too –  this beautiful bracelet did not cost me much.

I am the “Gemstone Bracelet Queen”, I think! I love pretty gemstone bracelets and other jewellery. Well, these gemstone bracelets are well worth what I paid for them – in fact they are priceless in terms of the pleasure and benefit they will bring me!
