For anyone involved in creative pursuits, be it professionally or for pleasure, there can be no greater fear than that sudden, overwhelming lack of ideas. Whether you’re a an artist wanting to unleash your imagination, a photographer creating studio portraits, a parent looking for a creative way to deal with family problems, a teacher looking for inspiration to make interesting lessons, a gardener wanting to create interesting layouts, a baker experimenting with new recipes, a knitter or quilter developing new patterns or a writer working on your grand Opus, your most important resource is your imagination, and the ability to manifest what you visualise.
When your inspiration deserts you, that dark absence of the creative glimmer can have far reaching effects. You feel no excitement, the intensity and passion for your creative outlet is muted and the world is flat and colourless.
You need a bit of a creative boost, and here it is!
Creating Your Bracelet
Each bracelet consists of semi precious gemstone beads, with spacer beads defining each group of gemstones.
I generally use Swarovski types pacers, as the multi faceted nature of them reflects and augments the Gemstone’s beauty and energy, although should you prefer, small silver plated or hematite spacers can be substituted, or omitted entirely, just let me know when you place your order.
I prefer to select a maximum of 3 or 4 different gemstones when creating your bracelet, because I believe that the energies of too many different crystals will vie with each other, and obscure the positive properties, as well as looking rather ‘fussy’!
Here are some of the Gemstones I like to use in this bracelet, simply select those you feel best fit your needs. If you require any further help to choose the best Gemstones for your situation, just message me and I will be delighted to discuss your requirements.

Carnelian benefits anyone involved in the creative process, be it music, art or drama.
If you are an artist who is struggling for inspiration, or having a difficult time getting your internal vision reflected in the real world, this may be an ideal stone for you to work with. Part of the challenge with creativity is you can see in your mind’s eye concepts and creations that you wish to bring to fruition. However, because the creative mind never stops envisioning, frequently by the time it is interpreted into physical form, you are dissatisfied as your vision has moved on which re the creation had not! Carnelian can help you lock into your vision and translate or interpret what is needed so it can be realized physically. This is true for musicians, painters, sculptors, assemblers and more. It improves self-confidence and increases inner receptivity. It helps to improve concentration, balancing creativity and the mental processes.
Apatite is ideal to stimulate the imagination and creative processes, and is used by artists, musicians, actors and dancers who wish to increase and harness their creativity.
