Laura - Smoky Quartz minimalist earrings in yellow 14K gold filled. Handmade wire wrapped jewellery by Arctida

Brrr...It's cold outside! I love real winter weather because it’s the best time for fire places, hot chocolate, and books :) That is actually how I came up with one of my latest designs! I was sitting and drinking cup of hot chocolate and the glossy rich auburn colored liquid reminded me of a beautiful Smokey Quartz (also known as Smoky Topaz) beads that I’ve had laying around. So here comes Laura - Smoky Quartz earrings wire wrapped in yellow 14K gold filled.

For sale in my Arctida, DaWanda and Etsy shop.

  A little info about Smoky Quartz...

Smoky or smokey quartz is a brown to black variety of quartz. Like other quartz gems, it is a silicon dioxide crystal. The smoky colour results from free silicon, formed from the silicon dioxide by natural irradiation.

Smokey Quartz stimulates the cooperation of multiple energies toward a common goal.  A wonderful stone for relationships, and for people in recovery who are part of a larger group, whether it be work, hobby, a home group, business group, or association. It is a gentle grounding stone that instills balance and harmony, and can help bring peace to you, enhancing quiet reflection during meditation without the interference of the thinking mind. This is not a quick energy stone, like Clear quartz crystal, but it has intense staying power to carry you over the long haul. Combine Smokey Quartz with Clear Quartz for lots of positive energy towards obtaining your dreams and goals, and to energize them into being a reality.




And speaking of warm and cozy… I found this wonderful chocolate brown Teddy Bear crochet pattern by Ira Rott! So cute and cuddly that you just want to hug it and never let it go :)


Oh and did you know that Chocolate can be used its medical property as well? Chocolate acts as an antiseptic, diuretic, parasiticide, and pilatory. It is used to treat burns, cough, listlessness, pregnancy, and snake bite. Cocoa has theobromine which has a similar effect to that of caffeine. It stimulates the muscles, heart, and kidneys. In fact, it can relieve congestion during colds by simply opening the bronchial passages in the lungs.
