I just added a new Tarot-inspired piece to my online handmade jewelry shop, Jewelry by Scotti. (Actually, there are two shops: one at _Etsy_ and one at _ArtFire_. Your choice!)
This necklace was inspired by The Empress card from Tarot of the Hidden Realm by Barbara Moore and Julia Jeffrey (Llewellyn).
This gemstone necklace features distinctive cream-colored carved jade beads, gorgeous olive new jade faceted ovals, and beautiful matte carnelian rounds, separated by decorative antiqued silver bead caps and barrel beads. The earthy colors are picked up by 5mm rounds in medium brown wood and faceted 8mm designer Czech glass beads in a pattern called spotted tiger. Finished with an antiqued silver lobster claw clasp, the necklace is adjustable from 16 to 20 inches in length.
Jade is said to generate divine unconditional love. It assists us in being in touch with our desires and with building the bridges to create dreams into reality. “New jade” is actually a form of serpentine, an exceptional meditation stone that helps us find inner peace. Carnelian is said to be a warming and joyous gem that facilitates concentration and opens the heart.
