Here we offer another venture into new geological areas with copper findings featuring lovely and 8 mm magickal lapis lazuli beads. We have a combination of Sumerian-looking, imprinted copper cone bead caps, small beads below the lapis, copper wire and copper French earwires. The earrings are small and light, and hang just over an inch below the bottom of the earwire.
Copper findings are increasingly evident in the world of jewelry, and lovely with so many stones! We hope you delight in our forays into this realm as much as we do! Should you have a skin-sensitivity to copper wires, just let us know, and as always, we will do everything we can to fill your special needs! As with all of our earrings, these come in ziplock bags to keep tarnish away and have clear soft rubber earnuts to keep them securely in place.
Like these earrings, but want them with a different stone? Please let us know - we do custom work!
You may find yourself extraordinarily energized when wearing this copper jewelry, because copper is thought to help overcome passivity, lethargy, and fatigue. Copper provides a connection between the physical plane and our astral bodies. It brings good fortune to the wearer - indeed, for luck, copper pennies are carried in shoes, pockets, purses and clothing. Copper is the metal of the God Hermes in Greece, Mercury in Rome, who facilitates quick thinking, mental acuity, and travel.
In addition, Venus rules copper! You will notice that the sigil for Mercury is a woman sign with a crescent on top. Take away the crescent, and you have Venus. Add it and you have Mercury/Hermes. Copper is worn to help shield against negative influences, and is often worn as a healing talisman.
Another very powerful use for copper is protective magicks for any sort of traveling. Having a gris-gris bag/mojo bag/medicine bag with copper as well as other Mercurial herbs in it is the most powerful protection to have in your car during travel.
One will find copper very powerful in reducing the chaos which occurs during Mercury Retrograde (apparent backward motion). This happens usually three times a year and last anywhere from a week to a few weeks. They're always marked on astrological calendars. During Mercury Retrograde, often confusion sets in in regard to communication and travel. Appointments may be missed, you may have difficulties in connecting with others, miscommunication may seem to rule, and difficulties with cars and travel may occur. It's very important to set up such things before the Retrograde period, and wear a copper bracelet during Mercury Retrograde, in addition to burning sandalwood.
Do not sign any important documents during the Retrograde, because such plans or transactions may end up coming undone when Mercury turns direct, and may in fact manifest the opposite of what you had planned.
Similar to Mercury Retrogrades are times when the Moon is Void-of-Course, done making aspects to one sign and waiting for the Moon signs to change, so that she becomes active again. It's as if she's in a holding pattern during those hours, which are also shown on astrological calendars. If you must make important decisions, do magick, etc. during a void-of-course Moon, burn Sandalwood and wear Copper, because otherwise your efforts may come to nil.
The deep blue of lapis lazuli, with subtle pyrite flecks and swirls of white calcite bring sky colors to mind. Lapis is a deep Spirit stone, and throughout ancient world was often used to carve depictions of the Sacred, of gods and goddesses. The ancients believed that lapis itself could hold the embodiment of the Divine, from ancient Egypt through the early Gnostic Christians, and would bring the presence of the Deity into the wearer. Lapis as well assists with refining and exploring memory, precognition, and all the psi-senses, as it is a stone connected with the Third Eye chakra which assists you to see beyond forms to the spiritual and energy substances behind them.
All of our items are one of a kind, hand-crafted and designed with a true love of the glorious gemstones of Mother Earth. Thank you for looking, and Brightest Blessings!
