I needed to get to the other side of the wall, the feeling was not dire but compelling in that it would be right or best if I were on the other side. I could not climb the wall so began to walk the length in hopes of finding a way through. The ivy was dense yet after I had walked for some time a spark of beautiful yellow light caught my eye through the foliage. As I investigated the rich yellow light I discovered it to be sunlight streaming through a stained glass window mounted in a wooden door. When I opened the door and moved to the other side I felt joy, comfort, and rightness. Were it not for the light shining through the yellow glass I would never have found the door. The door is known globally as a symbol of moving into something different, of change and newness. As a jewelry designer I wanted to share that experience through the medium of jewelry. The door is a sheet of sterling silver tapering from ¼ inch at the top out to 5/8 inch at the bottom and the window is represented by a beautiful colorful translucent stone of 7 millimeters. There is something deeply compelling about the rich, clean color of a natural crystal cut into a cabochon shape. I love the thought of the earrings representing the transition into new opportunity with the glowing-colored stone beckoning one to the essential, the other side, the new place. The design is intended to showcase the delightful colors of natural translucent stones coupled with the shine of undulating highly polished silver. I developed a setting method which allows maximum light to pass through the stone to showcase their color. The stones seem to glow. The hole whose edge is curled outward toward the front and the stone is fitted into the opening from behind. Then from behind a triangular piece of wire is pressed against the stone to hold it into place. This triangle adds an interesting design element to the back of the earrings. Amethyst. This Amethyst is a luscious purple. These stones are thought to bestow stability, inner strength, invigoration and peace. It transforms energy into positive, loving energy. It provides insight into the actualized self in order to facilitate change towards the ultimate state of perfection. Carnelian. This is a reddish-orange deeply colored stone believed to enhance creativity and courage. Additionally, some have said that it brings good luck, the right mate, and protection. Citrine. This brilliant stone is the color of a clear lemon candy with the added benefit of attracting wealth, prosperity and success. It is called the "Success Stone", said to promote and manifest success and abundance bringing energies of generosity so that the prosperity and success are shared. Citrine is believed to enhance mental clarity, confidence, and will power. Garnet. This richly colored reddish-plumb stone is said to revitalize, purify and balance energy, bringing serenity or passion as appropriate. Its red radiance represents love, arouses commitment, and inspires profound devotion. It activates and strengthens the survival instinct, bringing courage and hope, opening the heart and bestowing self- confidence.   Other stones may be available upon request.
