For those of you reading my posts regularly this is not a new subject...... but apparently it keeps occupying me.
"To stone or not to stone" , i visited a couple of weeks ago a shop specializing with stones in Tel Aviv. The visit was SO intense, I could hardly breath, the shop was spacious and well lighten so I dont think it was a matter of air or space.
I find it hard to say out load but i think it was the energy of the stones, is it real ? I wonder.
since I didnt come with a set agenda of what I was going to buy I let myself wonder around through the overwhelming colors and pick the ones that were calling me the most. I felt like a child in a canady shop, i just wanted to have them all.
I asked the seller to indicate on each string what stone it was so I wont fail to recognize the ones i dont know, and there were quite a few of those.
When I came home I hung them next to my work table so i can see them for when i decide to actually use them.
one of the stones that were new to me was Prehnite, i didnt even know how to spell it untill a few seconds ago, I think that what was calling me about this stone is that it looks like a miniature forest that you can literally carry around with .
from what i read Prehnite enhances inner knowledge, showing the path forward to spiritual growth, it is supposed to connect the will and the heart,. you are encouraged to wear it in order to strengthen your intuition and recognize truths.
well, even if it doesnt bring ll these thing isnt it a beauty ?

For those of you following my blog for a while and reading about my hesitations weather to work with stones or not, this design will probably come as a surprise, or maybe not?
I actually decide to stop wanting to decide... meaning? I decided to explore it when it crosses my life, which it obviously does... from time to time :)
so here are the very first birds from a larger collection of crocheted potion bags with a stone.
The stones I picked for my very first designs are large pale amethyst, onyx coins in a mat finish and light turquoise coins.
I was looking for a design where the stones wont necessarily win over the knitting....where both get to contribute to the relationship and relate to each other.
The amethyst potion bags have 3 versions, one in silver, one in gold and the third in my favorite oxidized silver (aren't gray and pale purple perfect together ?)
I hope you'll enjoy it :)
