Bee's Bracelets & Beautiful Gemstones

8/27/2014



I'm amazed at how creative some people are and I'm thoroughly a passionate supporter of all people who express their creativity in beautiful ways. One great example of positively channelled creativity is Handmade Jewelry Bee's Bracelets. A wonderful woman, Maja, makes this beautiful jewelry and it really makes sense - positive, loving people can only create nice, positive things. If you're from Bosnia and Herzegovina I strongly recommend to check out Bee's Bracelets Facebook page - I think you'll fall in love with it! If you're not from Bosnia, perhaps you have someone who would be interested in such jewelry? Recommendation is always welcome - word of mouth and all. This will mostly be a photo heavy post because I want to show you how amazing this jewelry really is. If you're into natural stones and gems and how they affect human body and psyche, this may be a perfect thing for you. I am obsessed with this black onyx penchant. I think it's absolutely stunning! I want to get more things Maja makes with this stone as it fascinates me. I'm not an expert at gemstone meaning or 'powers' but here are some basic things I know about black onyx. The name onyx comes from the Greek onux, which means "fingernail" or "claw". Like other black stones, the black onyx gemstone is a grounding stone, believed to keep a person firmly grounded to reality, and protecting the individual from internal imbalances or outward negative energies. Besides balancing excessive passion and excitement, the black onyx stone is also thought to neutralize negative emotions and mental stresses, and stave off external negativity at the same time. It surely cannot hurt.

Uvijek se odusevim navalom kreativnosti koju pojedini ljudi posjeduju i istinska sam, strastvena podrska svim ljudima koji svoju kreativnost kanalisu na pozitivan nacin. Jedan sjajan primjer toga je rucno radjeni nakit Bee's Bracelets. Jedna divna osoba pod imenom Maja kreira ovaj divni nakit i zaista ima smisla - pozitivni, dobri ljudi stvaraju takodjer pozitivne stvari u sta sam se i sama uvjerila. Ukoliko ste iz Bosne i Hercegovine, iskreno preporucujem da posjetite  Bee's Bracelets Facebook stranicu - mislim da cete se zaljubiti bas kao sto sam i ja! Ukoliko niste iz BiH, ako imate nekoga ovdje, slobodno im spomenite ovu stranicu posto ovaj vid privatnog djelovanja se najvise oslanja na dobru rijec koje ovdje ne manjka. Pripremite se za dosta fotografija kojima sam pokusala da vam docaram svu ljepotu ovog nakita. Ukoliko ste inace zainteresovani i upoznati sa dragim kamenjem te njihovim utjecajem na ljudsko tijelo i psihu - ovo ce vam posebno dobro 'leci'. Otkako sam ga dobila, opsjednuta sam privjeskom od crnog oniksa. Mislim da je fascinantan! Mislim da cu nabaviti jos stvarcica od oniksa kod Maje. Nisam strucnjak glede znacenja ili 'moci' dragog kamenja no i kroz moje usi su se provukle neke informacije. Naziv oniks potice od grcke rijeci onux sto znaci "nokat" ili "kandza". Poput ostalog dragog kamenja crne boje, crni oniks se smatra kamenom koji prizemljuje. Vjeruje se da nosiocu drzi noge cvrsto na zemlji, da se ne odvaja od realnosti te stiti pojedinca od unutarnjih disbalansa ili negativne energije usmjerene u njegovom/njenom pravcu. Osim sto balansira visak strasti i uzbudjenja, za crni oniks se takodjer vjeruje da neutralise negativne metalne stresove i emocije. U svakom slucaju, mislim da ovaj lijepi kamencic ne moze odmoci.



Since I'm a Cancerian, moonstone is an appropriate and assigned gemstone to my zodiac sign. Moonstone is the birthstone of Cancer, zodiac sign whose ruling planet is the moon. The gemstone moonstone is believed to bring calm and serenity: things that the receptive Cancer people are inclined to seek and cherish. Cancer people have strong intuition (can personally attest) and are reputed to possess clairvoyance: a trait that the gem moonstone is thought to stimulate as well. Most popular in its bluish white color, moonstone is a feldspar gemstone that looks as though it shines from within. With its glowing bluish brilliance as of moonlight, moonstone reminded the ancients of the moon, thus the name given to it. Legends of Ancient Rome even spoke of moonstone as produced from the very rays of the moon solidified into rock. Accordingly both Romans and Greeks associated the moonstone crystal with their lunar deities, that is to say, the Greek goddess Artemis, whom the Romans called Diana. Also known as the Traveler’s Stone, moonstone makes a popular amulet for travelers, as the gemstone is believed to protect people on their journey especially at night, the same way the moon guides one’s way on a dark path. This makes sense to me - night shift working Cancerian could definitely benefit from moonstone, right? Not only does the gemstone provide protection to travelers, moonstone is also believed to bestow a calming, healing effect to its wearer, soothing one's worries, driving away nightmares, bringing a sense of security and peace.

Posto sam Racica po zodijaku, mjesecev kamen je odgovarajuci odabir posto je dragi kamen za koji se vjeruje da pripada mom znaku (mjesec je vladar i sva ta prica). Vjeruje se da mjesecev kamen donosi smiraj u spokoj (ako me pocnete zezati da sam kao Milan Tarot, naljuticu se nakon sto se dobro nasmijem! lol). U svakom slucaju, te umirujuce emocije su ono cemu Rakovi inace teze i sto ujedno cijene. Rakovi posjeduju snaznu intuiciju (licno mogu potvrditi) ali neki kazu i da imaju pomalo i sposobnosti vidovitosti - mjesecev kamen pojacava njihovo ispoljavanje. Najpopularnija boja mjesecevog kamena je upravo plavicasto-bjelicasta nijansa koju vidite na fotografijama. I zaista djeluje kao da isijava iznutra ka izvana. Upravo zbog tog efekta je mjesecev kamen stare narode podsjecao na mjesec zbog cega je i dobio svoje ime. Govorilo se da mjesecev kamen nastaje tako sto, kada se mjesecina spusti na tlo, ona ocvrsne i tako postaje kamen. Legenda kaze da su Stari Grci i Rimljani poistovjecivali mjesecev kamen sa svojim lunarnim bozanstvima (grcka bozica Artemida i rimska bozica Dijana). Poznat i kao Putnicki kamen, mjesecev kamen je popularna hamajlija za sve putnike posto se vjeruje da pruza zastitu ljudima na svojim putovanjima - posebno nocu, na isti nacin kao sto im mjesecina ukazuje put. Ovo mi vec ima smisla kao Racici koja radi nocne smjene - mogu napraviti vlastitu interpretaciju. Pored spomenutog vjerovanja, takodjer se kaze da mjesecev kamen zacjeljuje i umiruje osobu koja ga nosi, ublazuje brige, uklanja nocne more donoseci osjecaj smirenosti.



Last but definitely not the least - we have the turquoise bracelet and earrings made of Swarovski elements and amethyst. I'm fond of both but wasn't surprised that turquoise attracts me so much as turquoise is also known as a traditional birthstone for July, though most popular as the December birthstone. Turquoise is a valuable, rare opaque stone ranging in color from green to blue. This July birthstone is believed to bring clarity of mind and spiritual discernment. I think these cute wings are a lovely addition to the bracelet as they associate me of freedom. I wore this bracelet two weeks in a row - that's how much I like it. As for the sparkly earrings, they are very elegant. And what about amethyst? Amethyst is the classic representation of purple gemstones. Since ancient times, when purple gems are mentioned, amethyst almost always comes to the fore. This purple gemstone is the violet variety of quartz. The purple gem was highly valuable then and was in fact counted among the precious stones, until the 18th century when sizable supply of amethyst was discovered in Brazil, bringing down the value of the purple stone. Amethyst is the birthstone for February. In astrology, the purple crystal is the birthstone of the Pisces zodiac sign. My hubby is Pisces so no wonder I love it so much as I love as Piscean people. Was this post a bit weird to you? I know that strictly logical people roll their eyes upon mention of anything astrology related but I find it to be good fun. Do you know what is your birthstone and would you wear one?

Za kraj sam ostavila prekrasnu tirkiznu narukvicu i nausnice napravljene od kombinacije Swarovski elemenata i ametista. Oba komada nakita su mi jako draga no nisam se iznenadila da me tirkizna narukvica toliko privlacila posto je tirkiz poznat kao drugi tradicionalni dragi kamen koji je dodijeljen osobama rodjenim u mjesecu julu (iako je popularnije vjerovanje da odgovara osobama rodjenim u decembru). Tirkiz je vrijedan dragi kamen koji se pojavljuje u varijacijama od zelene do plave boje (i svim kombinacijama istih). Za ovaj kamen se vjeruje da donosi bistrinu uma i duhovni mir. Mislim da su ova sladjusna krilca jako simpatican i smislen dodatak narukvici posto asociraju na slobodu. Kada sam je dobila, nosila sam ovu narukvicu dvije sedmice za redom bez prestanka - toliko mi se dopala. Sto se svjetlucavih nausnica tice, jako su elegantne. A ametist? Ametist je klasicni dragi kamen ljubicaste boje. Jos od antickih vremena, kada god bi se spominjalo ljubicasto drago kamenje - automatski se pretpostavljalo da mislite na ametist. Ovaj kamen je ljubicasta varijacija kvarca. Posebno je bio cijenjen u proslo vrijeme te se ubrajao medju odabrano i rijetko drago kamenje sve do 18 stoljeca kada je otkrivena pozamasna zaliha ametista u Brazilu, sto je kamenu oborilo cijenu. Ametist je kamen dodijeljen mjesecu februaru. U astrologiji, ametist je kamen horoskopskog znaka Ribe. Moj muz je Riba tako da ne cudi sto mi se ametist dopao (inace volim sve Ribice koje sam upoznala). Znam da vecina striktnih logicara zakoluta ocima na spomen dragog kamenja, znacenja, moci i horoskopa ili zodijaka ali meni je sve to jako zabavna i fina razbibriga. Da li znate koji je vas dragi kamen ili kam koji odgovara vasem horoskopskom znaku? Da li bi ga nosili?
