Because of the vibratory nature of bells they are an extremely effective form of spiritual cleansing and protection. Bells can ward off negativity and unwanted visitors. The vibrations from the bells will break up the negative and stagnant energy left hanging in the air. They move and jolt to life the stagnant and worn-out.  

Jewelry was part of the Turkmen tribe women's dowry. These antiquities worn by nomadic women living in the mountains, possibly Bedouin people. Embellished jewelry was worn to define the prominence of these tribal women and or family. 

Fair trade and refugee sourced this beautiful pendant, circular & scarab findings and bell charms are juxtaposed against the small, richly colored, geometric jewels of sparkling sapphires, emeralds, aquas, and garnets cascading into palm wood beads. 

The Dakota contains incredibly vibrant gems; shiny and polished and others old, weathered and rutty from time bathed in rich jeweled tones colored from the earth. I've incorporated the seductively hued stones with beads of the finest variety.  

The beads are carefully chosen for their antiquity and craftsmanship of their makers. Please note minor flaws or imperfections may appear within these handcrafted beads or inclusions within the natural, raw gems. It's one aspect of their inherent beauty.

This is a tribal necklace like no other, filled with many healing stones and beads, fair trade sourced from places around the world. Designed from my inspiration of everyday life, art, fashion, music, architecture, nature, ethnography of cultures and world events. Made with astute attention to detail, injected with love and healing intentions.  

Precious stone designs are accompanied by an identifying list containing the scientific and meta-physical healing qualities and histories contained within all of the gems & charms in your piece. All accessory and jewelry items are shipped securely inside BINC bodyBAUBLES signature, keepsake storage satchel that is made with inimitable, repurposed materials.
