This beaded bracelet is composed of dark blue aventurine, hand painted decorative bead “Sun” and sterling silver spacer. The aventurine is a variety of quartz containing small mica flakes, that gives it a sparkling effect so similar to the twinkling of stars in the night sky. The Sun is the star at the center of the Solar System and is by far the most important source of energy for life on Earth. The star has been an object of veneration in many cultures throughout human history. The Sun represents the self, one’s personality and ego, the spirit and what it is that makes the individual unique. It is our identity and our face to the world. The Sun also speaks to creative ability and the power of the individual to meet the challenges of everyday life. It is the symbol of authority, control and charisma.
