We rise in courage
We rise in courage
A note from Liz: The Heart Song Collection is a new series of very special necklaces that I’m creating in the in-between moments in my studio and home. They are one of a kind, made by me, and I’m weaving stories, prayers, and blessings into each one as I create them. Before it is sent to you, I will bless it with sage and love and write you a love note, from my heart to yours.
The October collection was created in the days when red, orange, and yellow leaves began to fall in my yard and moments were filled with Simon and Garfunkel singing, candles being lit at dusk, a little girl reading aloud about Piggy and Gerald, and a woman listening to the current of women rising in their strength, truth, courage, and determination. (And a little Janet Jackson in there too.) May your necklace fill you up with light, love, and connection as you walk your path.
Details: When I held these stones in my hand, ready to create this new collection, I heard Maya Angelou say, "But still, like air, I'll rise." As I look around at the women in my life and where we are in the world, I believe this is true. This necklace is deeply infused with that belief.
A beautiful aquamarine gemstone is the focal point of this special necklace. Aquamarine is a stone of courage. It is also the stone of the sea and invites in clarity and lightness. This specific stone is part of a collection of aquamarine I've been holding onto for awhile, just waiting for the right story to appear so they could be released to the dear souls who most need them.
This necklace is adorned with rainbow moonstone and labradorite gemstones. Moonstone is the stone of the feminine. It connects you to the moon and the source of light inside you. Labradorite is a stone of inner knowing. It is said to hold pieces of the Aurora Borealis.
The necklace is 20.5 inches around. Brass wire, chain, and brass findings are used; brass is nickel free.
Handmade in my little studio near Puget Sound.
