Mysterious Moonstone

Perhaps not the most helpful description of this mysterious and stunning stone but according to Wikipedia, “Moonstone is a sodium potassium aluminum silicate with the chemical formula (Na,K)AlSi3O8 and belongs to the feldspar group.” Now we know what we’re dealing with, let’s explore some fun facts… Moonstone got its name from its magical appearance. It’s misty, translucent and somewhat otherworldly. Apparently, the Romans believed that Moonstone was made from solidified rays of the Moon. What a wonderful thought!

Summer Moods

Summer will soon be here very soon. We had a lovely pocket of glorious sunshine recently so there really is hope now beyond the seemingly constant rain. What are you looking forward to most about the warmer weather? For me, I love getting the washing out on the line. A simple thing that brings me huge pleasure.

Creating peace, calm and a deeper connection to nature. Each bracelet is handmade...
