This week I received a commission to make a necklace as a thank you gift.
The only information I had to work on were the following guidelines:
*the necklace had to use gemstones;
*the lady receiving the necklace has reddish hair;
*she favours high-necked shirts &
*she can get a little ‘frazzled’ at her work at times.
Could I create a calming necklace for her please?
Based on those criteria, I chose these Lapis Lazuli beads…
for mental endurance & clarity. Plus I thought that they would contrast nicely with red hair.
I also chose this Tibetan Mila pendant…
as the focal. Again, for the contrast between the blue of the Lapis, & the amber (faux amber, by the way).
I tried to do a little research in to the use & origin of Tibetan Mila beads, but couldn’t find any clear information. I get the impression that they are used for prayer & to aid in meditation. If anyone out there can help me with this information, I’d appreciate it.
So now I’m just waiting for my parcel of beads to arrive, so that I can string them up. I’ll post a picture of the necklace when it is done!
