Anne Choi Moonstone & Sterling Silver Artisan Bead Bracelet, Talisman Bead, Fine Silver
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 "Peace is our gift to each other." 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." I think this bracelet is a strong talisman for peace in our daily lives.
As further inspiration, I arranged three colors of Moonstone: White Moonstone, representing the full moon and the light we bring into our own and each others' lives; Black Moonstone (also called Larvikite or Norwegian Moonstone), representing the new moon or the time when we journey into the unseen realms where everything exists as potential; and Peach Moonstone, representing the sweet and loving energy that promotes the Divine in all situations. These were my symbols but they may represent something entirely different for you. 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. Gray Moonstone is a stone of perceiving beyond the veil - useful to the clairvoyant and shaman, and in moving one into unseen realms. It is called the "New Moon Stone" and carries the mysteries and powers of the new moon, where all things exist as potential.
White Moonstone carries the energy of the full moon at the height of its power, stimulating psychic perception, vision and dream work. It can magnify one's emotions, activating the kundalini energy in women and emotional balance in men. Peach Moonstone supports the heart as it stimulates the mind, soothing worry or anxiety, and bringing out the best in people. Its loving energy promotes the Divine in all situations.

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.
