Deeper Meanings 

Spotlight on some noteworthy beauties and the meanings behind them:

Polished Chrysoprase and Gold

Chrysoprase helps to make conscious what is currently unconscious. The stone’s vibrations have a tranquilizing effect that seem to bring damaging subconscious thought to the foreground, where they can be assessed and dealt with properly. The gold and green beauty can be purchased HERE

Orange calcite with brass and gold chains

Doesn’t this orange calcite look good enough to eat? Orange calcite is all about awakening energies inside of us, particularly those that aid in creativity and sexuality. This creamsicle looking baby is available for purchase HERE

Selenite and Silver

I recently wore a piece similar to this on my trip back to New York and San Francisco because I wanted my grandmother close – watching over me. I know that she is always present in my life and in my head, but selenite is said to bring you even closer to the other side and more specifically – to your departed loved ones. Get this Selenite necklace HERE

Glittering gunmetal and silver skull tassel earrings

The beauties above have gunmetal glitter coated skulls. They are howlite underneath and were gifted to me last weekend. Aztecs looked at skulls more as a symbol of rebirth instead of death. Get them HERE.

Raw yellow apatite silver necklace

Yellow Apatite is all about awakening your inner self to achieve success and boost creativity. It rids you of apathy and makes you more optimistic and outgoing. It provides the courage to take risks, and the clarity to know which risks are worth taking. Yellow Apatite is particularly useful in starting new ventures. It supports creative ideas and bringing them into reality, as well as developing the business skills needed to make a living from one’s passions. Get your own HERE.

Cat ear globe necklace with blue quartz and kyanite

I get my hands on these beauties every time I visit Japan. I fill the gold and glass cat ear globes with gemstone chips. This time the chips are blue quartz and kyanite. Kyanite can make you have and remember vivid dreams. Cat ears speak to awakening our animal natures. Get your cat ear globe HERE.

The Aztec Bride

There I go mentioning the Aztecs again. I must look deeper into why they are on my mind at a later date. These glorious, long babies have contrasting hoop shapes that are ever-so flattering. Inside each delicate gold hoop sits an etched blue, green or red patina etched spirograph charm. I was really drawn to these charms because they looked like a more refined version of the little plastic and pen spirograph kits my cousin would get for Christmas and I would covet. Get these beautiful earrings HERE

And those are just a few of my recent creations that I found a deeper meaning with. Stay tuned for more.

Southern Socialite inspirations with the Real Housewives of Dallas

The Real Housewives of Dallas return tonight and I cannot wait! Mostly I want to see what craziness LeeAnne Locken gets up to. For a long time I have wanted to bring my wares to the Lone Star state in a big way. I have been featured in and around the Dallas area at boutiques and many of my online sales come from that region.  It might be that I love the statement necklace and the women there have absolutely no fear of making bold choices with their accessories. 

In honor of tonight’s premiere and my popularity in the area I have paired one of my currently in stock statment pieces with each of the 6 women with featured roles on RHOD this year. 

My favourite RHOD is Stephanie Hollman because she is hilarious, really sweet, and has a style that I love. I paired her with one of my more delicate statement pieces, the “Nautical Coco” filled with tanzanite, fresh water pearls, and aquamarine. Get Nautical Coco. 

I also really like Cary Deuber and her look. She borders on having a rock n’ roll edge to her style at times and I think she would look great in this draping gothic cross piece. Get Rock N’ Roll Heart here.

Brandi Redmond gives me laughs as well and I really love her friendship with Stephanie. I hope they remain close this year even with all the drama and screaming around them. I paired Brandi with my classic eagle bib statement necklace because she SEEMS the most Texas to me. I MEAN former Cowboy cheerleader and all that attitude. Love it. Get the Eagle bib here

LeeAnne Locken gets the most screen time I think. She gets moved to rage quite often and tends to act out when she feels she is being judged or not heard. I have dealt with this myself, but had the good fortune of not being filmed while going through that difficult growth. In any case, her brand of crazy is the real reason many people watch the Real Housewives so I’m not sure what the show would be without her. And it’s not like she’s anywhere near as evil as Phaedra. Rest in peace girl. I paired LeeAnne with the Vampire Killer. I have been making these bold cross and miraculous medallion charm necklaces for many years and I think LeeAnne has the bold style and Christian pride to pull it off in the best way. Get the Vampire Killer here. 

I saw newcomer Kameron Westcott wearing teal and black in a few style shots floating around online and felt this Sky Blue and Black bib charm necklace would work great for her. I’m excited to see what she’s all about. You can get yours here.

I feel for the other newcomer D’Andra Simmons already as she is friends with both LeeAnne AND Cary and is sure to be in the middle of some nastiness as the outspoken women get their rage on. I paired her with some divine light in the form of my holographic crystal bib. Get yours here.

Have fun watching tonight and give Zachary Pryor’s jewels a look during the commercial break!
