"protection 1.0" (fall/earth)
Ancient Eygyptians wore the gemstone turquoise in times of war on their armor to keep soldiers spiritually protected. The wooden turquoise bead represents the idea of protection, surrounded by two gray metallic beads representing shields. I used a rust colored bead for the band to give off an Earthy/ Fall tone. Fall, a time when life in its repeating circle comes to its zenith and returns to the Earth to begin a new, Protected.
The aim of this bracelet is that the painted turquoise wooden bead wears away symbolizing a wave of protection that becomes one with you through time. The idea is that protection is available to you anytime you chose to receive it. (check out the last picture for a worn in version of the bracelet- different effects for different body chemistries)
This design is a part of my metallic line. Why metal? Through time metal changes color, scratches & fades, but in every incarnation lies beauty, like people. 11 beads on each side representing the power number of change and "NEW BEGINNINGS" 11:11. Finished off with a black bead and light colored wood bead to represent light & dark. You can't have one without the other. It holds it all together!
