Vibration collection ~ Malachite macrame necklace with celestial brass charm
Malachite macrame necklace with celestial brass charms.
Macrame is a weaving technique that involves the use of cord, often waxed, to wrap stones without the use of glue. This is beneficial for who believes in the amazing properties of crystals, as chemicals are thought to interfere negatively with them.
The stone used is malachite and all the metal parts are made of solid brass so water safe.
For the weaved fibre part I've used Linhasita cord, a high quality waxed cord used for shoe making and leather work. This ensures a very long durability of your handmade piece.
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc and will naturally tarnish when exposed to oxygen. Some people like the patina of tarnished brass and the tarnish is actually a protective layer for the brass. However the shine can be restored with a polishing cloth, steel wool or many household products.
The properties of malachite:
"Malachite is a protection stone, absorbing negative energies and pollutants from the atmosphere and from the body. It guards against radiation of all kinds, clears electromagnetic pollution and heals earth energies. As a stone of transformation encourages change and emotional risk-taking. It shows what is blocking your spiritual growth then allows you to break unwanted ties and outworn patterns. It encourages the expression of feelings, alleviating shyness and teaching the responsibility for one's own thoughts and actions"
