As you may have guessed, I have always been obsessed with the heart and all it symbolises. So why not make the ultimate heart pendent = Burn My Heart pendent, which I hand carved out of wax. I wanted the heart shaped stone set into the piece so it's always visible at the back, to let the wearer feel it's energy and to let the light inn.
Here is some symbolic meaning to the piece:
Fire placed above the heart symbolises fire in a positive way — whose purpose is to light up the world by doing good. According to the “Kabbalah,” the Perpetual Fire’ burning in our hearts (‘heart’ is another synonym for ‘centre’ also in Hebrew) symbolises the strong connection with the universe which is essentially runs through the centre of our lives.
The heart is a living symbol. The heart is an essential to life, as is the sun to our solar system. This organ is the location of our true intention in life. If we follow the flow of energy that seeps from our hearts, we will access that intention.
I have chosen to use these 6 incredible gemstones, however I am always open to suggestions :)
Amethyst is a powerful and protective stone. It's is a natural tranquilliser, evokes calmness and helps balance mood swings.
Citrine: is said to hold the energy of the sun embodied within this stone, which acts as a source of positive energy in all aspects of your life.
Garnet: it is the embodiment of the energies of fire, passion, creativity, and strength.
Topaz: is regarded as the “crystal of potency,” stimulating one’s self-confidence and inspires creativity.
Opal: stimulates originality and creativity. It is said to boost the will to live and the joy of one’s earthly existence. All opals are totally unique, so they will each look different, that's the beauty of them :)
Boulder Opal calms the inner soul by representing the interplay of emotional elements, as seen by its refracting colours. This gemstone, which yields one-of-a kind-pieces that are unlike any other, facilitates personal actualisation and self-awareness. It is an excellent stone for progress, expansion, and development + my personal favourite.
