Do you believe in charms and crystals? I do, in a sense. I don't believe in their purported magical properties that can solve all your problems in a hurry. However, I do think that simply knowing what they are supposed to do can influence our actions. At the very least they remind us how we want our lives to be like.
I mean, it's hard to forget something when you're wearing it on your wrist or neck, right? For example, if you want to remember to stop freaking out about everything, an amethyst crystal would be a nice accessory!
That's why I think that these charmed accessories from Holic are a nifty gift this Christmas. These are handmade pieces with lucky beads and raw crystals, each with a special meaning. Gift them to the people in your life who need a loving reminder from the stones and by extension, you. ;) Don't forget to include a handwritten letter explaining the meaning of your gift!
Here are a couple of pieces that I have plus their interpretations.
The Citrine Candy Crystal Bracelet (P450) is made of citrine raw crystal (the one in the middle), lucky charm Beads (side beads) and German crystal Spacers. Citrine is a yellow-to-golden member of the quartz mineral group that is said to increase self esteem, protect from the negative energy from someone else's abuse, open the mind to new thoughts, and to promote clarity of thought.
The Amethyst Candy Crystal Necklace (P500) has a raw amethyst crystal in a delicate lilac shade. It's said to be a meditative and calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to provide calm, balance, patience, and peace. Amethyst is also a protection for travelers.
So there you have it. :) If you're looking for a stylish yet more meaningful gift, these crystal accessories just might be it. You can purcase them from Holic Accessories in The Ramp and on their FB page.
