The hunt may be for a new home or new employment, but, like the ancestors, our success in the hunt may require skill, patience, intuition, and a deep understanding. This is a guardian amulet for those hunting for a new beginning. The moon is the sign or change, and the dawn will soon flood the forest with warmth and light.

Amethyst Dream Necklace

This deep-violet amethyst and natural pearl necklace is set with a smoky amethyst teardrop pendant and strung on waxed linen. The necklace’s overall length is 9.5 inches (17" end to end).

Amethyst and pearl are both closely associated with higher spiritual energies and the Crown Chakra. Both have a calm, protective aura and a sense of enlightened awareness. The spherical amethyst beads balance the natural pearl shapes for an overall harmonious effect.

Amethyst is often associated with dreams and dreaming in which the stone itself plays a role. Some of the classic amethyst dreams include seeing an amethyst on the ground bringing good fortune and prosperity. Seeing an amethyst associated with white brings peace of mind through good news. Holding an amethyst crystal in a dream enhances creativity and intuition. On the other hand, a dream of a lost amethyst could mean trouble in your love relationship. A dream of giving an amethyst as a gift to another person indicates forgiveness for a wrong. A string of amethysts is symbolic of freedom, joy, and release from worries. If someone gives you an amethyst you will have good fortune, and if you buy the stone for yourself you are raising your consciousness to a higher level.

I have always loved amethyst and wear it frequently. It is definitely a stone of creativity and enlightenment.

The polished oval magnesite beads contrast with the rugged turquoise nuggets in a natural way. Both turquoise and magnesite have a strong, calm, protective energy that encompasses earth and sky.

Horse has long been a symbol of power and freedom. Before humans climbed on the horse’s back, they were slow, plodding creatures. Then, in partnership with horse, they could travel great distances and move over the land like the wind.

Star Shaman's Amulet

This unusual Star Heart design came to me from a dream, and it represents the healing power of starlight. Much of the starlight that reaches the Earth is of very ancient origin and connects us directly with the creative power of the Universe. It is from that connection that healing can arise.

This unusual circular amulet is hand-sewn from double-thickness washable felt and has a 2.5-inch diameter. The overall length is approximately 13 inches, and the length of the beaded strands from the clasp to the amulet pouch is 10 inches. The amulet strands feature glass, acrylic, and amethyst beads strung on light monofilament. The deep-purple felt is edged in gold-colored seed beads, and the piece is finished with a short fringe of faceted glass aurora beads and amethyst. The beaded golden star design radiates its light freely to all.

The deep-purple of the amulet represents the vastness of space, and the gold and auroral beads reflect the brilliance of starlight. The amethyst beads bring a sense of peace and a connection to higher spiritual realms. If you do healing work or have a very strong connection to the stars, then this design may be right for you.
