Mourning Beads, Short Necklaces - One-Of-A-Kind
Hand Strung beads of Lapis or Moonstone.
In the Mid 19th century Lapis Lazuli was used in art and jewelry to symbolize sympathy and love.
Fastened with our classic hands clasp, symbolic of the relationship between the person who has passed away and the loved ones left behind. A reminder of loss but also of union and the hope of reunion. One hand grips a larger hook, for easy opening and closing.
Lapis, deep celestial blue flecked with gold pyrite
is one of the oldest spiritual stones. I've hand selected these strands not just for their beauty alone, but because Lapis is said to provide "the relief of things that may have been suppressed and allows for them to surface, helping to diminish dis-ease or repressed anger." Fitting for dealing with death and the trauma of loss and the feelings that arise surrounding it.
... and on a lighter note, Lapis is also an alternative birthstone for December

Or a shimmering delicate strand of tiny rainbow Moonstones, reminiscent of glimmering teardrops. Moonstone is the traditional birthstone of June, along with pearl, and is said to be most powerful at night.
