Coral

I have this friend and she’s super amazing. She inspires me daily just for the fact that she lives life out loud. Damned if she doesn’t have some really rough days and with all honesty, throws it out there for everyone to see. If you read her blog she leaves it all on the table and I’ll be honest, some days are difficult to read. I love her braveness to expose herself to so much rawness in order to heal and her willingness to take on haters who would most likely challenge, judge and condemn her publicly. She no longer lives in the dark and her wounds and pain are brought to new light daily. I knew her in high school and I had no idea that her life was so painful. Twenty years later and we’re trying to find ways to heal from our experiences and it’s my opportunity to be a better friend this time around.

Through Facebook I get to witness her life and watch her handle those curve balls we all get thrown but are usually too embarrassed to talk about. It is in those, she often expresses how much she misses her mother and Sherry’s Lessons are often a subject matter for her blog and reveal life lessons we can all use.

It is Coral’s honesty and fortitude that inspire me and with those gifts, she has shared stories about her mom that have made me chose a different path than I would have before. Grateful for the lessons, I was inspired to create this beauty in their honor.

A bit of research on the two of them and found they share similar stones in their astrology so coming up with a design was easy.

Mookite Power

There are some days when I walk in to a bead store and certain stones will just call to me. This was the case with Mookite. I had visited our local store a few times before I decided to buy them and I was oh so excited to work with them.

Enamored with the different colors I quickly went on the search to find out more about this stone. One of the first places I visit is Energy Muse. I find their information quite extensive and Mookite did not disappoint.

My head is usually in the clouds and so working with stones that have a strong grounding effect is a nice change. I can say that while I was working on this piece, I absolutely found myself mellow. No drama was to be had around me and it was nice to feel my feet on the ground.

The supporting stones are Carnelian and Onyx. The Guru bead is Tiger’s Eye.
