This one-of-a-kind Chakra bracelet features an exquisite sterling silver Limited Edition talisman bead made by Anne Choi. The bead is inscribed with "ABOVE THE CLOUD WITH ITS SHADOW IS THE STAR WITH ITS LIGHT." She thinks of her handmade beads "as an intimate form of communication, a message to one's self that one wears – a talisman, or charm, or a link to an inner world."
The stones I used to create this bracelet are violet-blue Iolite, Amethyst Cacoxenite, also called Super 7 or Melody Stone, and a single rainbow Moonstone. I feel that the colors represent the starlight, the violet-blue twilight sky and the vibrant red and burgundy of a rising or setting sun.
Also included in the bracelet design are beautiful Bali sterling silver and Karen Hill Tribe fine silver beads which I've scattered around the bracelet.
Moonstone is associated with the third eye and solar plexus Chakras. Folklore calls Moonstone a stone of new beginnings, inner growth and strength.
Known as a Stone of Ascension, Cacoxenite is believed to raise the spiritual awareness of the human race and to provide a loving and ethereal connection between all of the universe. It encourages a conscious awareness of the significance in random events to guide us on the right path, and in sensing the essence of the Creator in the beauty of nature and the kindness of people. [Melody, 177][Eason, 105]Hall, 81]
Cacoxentie within Amethyst is particularly regenerative, not only for reprogramming the body’s cells to continually renew themselves, but also for revitalizing the mind. The inclusion of Cacoxenite initiates a higher level of creativity, clearing the Third Eye and Crown Chakras of conventional thought and limitations, and bringing new, “never before thought of” ideas and innovations to humanity. [Simmons, 79][Hall, 81-82][Melody, 177]
Iolite resonates with the energy of twilight, a beautiful violet-blue that stimulates the astral bodies and psychic awareness. It reveals realms beyond the usual waking consciousness and is ideal for astral projection, dimensional and other inner vision works, and is excellent for past- and alternate-life work. [Ahsian, 207]
Iolite is a stone of the muses, activating the visionary, creative side of the mind, and accessing thoughts and ideas beyond the ordinary. It inspires creative self-expression through writing, song, movement and other artistic endeavors. [Ahsian, 207]

ANNE CHOI'S PROCESS FOR MAKING EACH UNIQUE BEAD
~ She designs and carves her own molds in leather-hard clay, which she then bisque fires
~ A wax impression is taken from this mold, encased in a plaster investment, and cast in sterling silver.
~ The rough casting is further worked into the finished piece.
~ The bead is oxidized with liver of sulfur to emphasize its design and texture.
The bisque clay mold is also fragile, and easily broken in use. For this reason, she produces an extremely limited number of each new design. After the initial pieces are made, she makes more only as the impulse strikes her.
