While in Yoga Teacher Training in 2013, one of the ladies in the class gave out a lovely and simple bookmark to each of us. The beads were purple and the charm was a lotus flower. The yoga school was Purple Lotus and I remember thinking how personal and thoughtful that was. I used it until the hemp cord wore out.
Some time later, after much trial and error, I made myself a few using beading wire (so they would last longer), crystal beads and Tibetan silver yoga charms. A few friends saw them and wanted one. They came back for more to to give as gifts! I was pleased and honored to say the least.
I bought more wire, beads, charms and well...everything. I watched videos and practiced whenever time would allow - making over 50. Many of these I gave as gifts in 2016.
I purchased a few different display pieces. I also made hanging pieces for Reiki / Energy practitioner friends and yoga studios using charms of the seven Chakras. I purchased cotton-filled jewelry gift boxes and silver organza gift bags.
Months later, I expanded into Bag Charms, using heavier wire, which can be used as Zipper Pulls and Key Rings! They are blingy, fun and versatile. I gave some to my friends to test for strength and they love them for their yoga bags!
My intention is to sell my work to cover material costs and my time. Remaining proceeds will go to supporting yoga programs and EFT tapping / Matrix Reimprinting work since I believe so strongly in a spiritual / energy-aware foundation.
