Blue Topaz can assist in opening up ones throat chakra, which in turn heightens the ability to communicate. This makes it a very powerful stone to use when you wish to express yourself in a meaningful way, both when speaking and writing. This is also a brilliant stone to use in guiding one to think more freely and easily.
So the word FREEDOM as it turns out, is such a fitting word to inscribe on this custom ring. It really is a stone that represents the beautiful and liberating freedom of the voice and the mind. In my coaching practice, I've noticed that more women than ever are exercising their voices, speaking about their experiences and asking for what they want and this relates very fluidly to the idea of freedom and "coming out of the closet" with who we really are. As a designer, I have found that the majority of the orders I work on these days are custom amulets, so this ring is of course completely in alignment with what I see happening on a large scale.
I loved creating this ring for Beth. She came to my studio and actually chose the stone and the word long before we researched the symbolism, so learning about the healing properties of the stone really makes this ring even more powerful. This stone is a rose cut London Blue Topaz, set in 18k gold bezel on reticulated silver. There are 3 10k gold bolts and the band is set with 6 tiny 2mm stones in Emerald, Blue Topaz, Blue Sapphire, Zircon and Aquamarine.
Beth came to me wanting to design a ring to celebrate her life as it looks these days. Beth Walker is a well known makeup artist in the Denver area and quite often has photographs taken of her hands as she applies makeup to models. Her rings get seen, if you know what I mean! Because she's a visual artist she expressed to me that it was very important to her that the things she wears are aesthetically beautiful and also that they make her feel good. In designing this ring, she not only got to choose the colors, stones and metals that she was in love with, she also got to infuse the piece with the energy of the word FREEDOM. Makes me want to take a deep breath and relax into that! To see more of her work, go here.
