Joy Alights


Joy Alights bracelet...

This bracelet is loosely based on a beautiful quote from Nathaniel Hawthorne about happiness:

Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

The handmade Hill Tribe silver piece on the bracelet is a dragonfly rather than a butterfly, because the dragonfly often symbolizes the shattering of illusion so that truth remains. The illusion here is that happiness eludes you. It’s just a matter of being still, and opening to all that you have around you already that contains beauty, that inspires you, that brings you joy. It’s all right next to you. Just be still and let it “alight.” Learn to be still and let it in! The stones are rose quartz (beautifully faceted and light-catching), and white turquoise that’s been dyed pink. There are faceted clear quartz beads to enhance the energy, and a variety of sterling silver beads, nuggets, mirror balls, twsted rings, and an extra large lobster clasp which connects to a ss puzzle piece representing you solving the puzzle of how to be happy. It’s all about gentle heart energy here in this piece!
