Semi-Precious Stones
ORIGINAL – this is the original, there are no reproductions done or going to be done of this piece

This painting was so much fun to do and I just love this piece with all the stones on it. I wanted to use Quartz and Amethyst for this piece to represent the stars and group them together like the milky way. I m so intrigued with the astronomy and staring up at the stars.
This painting reminds me of lying on your back on a clear summer night staring up at the stairs, where the only thing you hear are crickets and the only thing you are thinking of is when the next shooting star will fly in your path.

Quartz Crystal: Wonderful multi use stone. Enhances energy of all other stones and metals. Harmonious and powerful. Aids communication. Sign of Entire Zodiac.

This painting is apart of my " Elements Series"

Elements Series; incorporating semi-precious stone and unique pieces of the earth in a creative way.

This painting is part of my mixed media “ELEMENTS” Series where I want to bring in elements on the earth into my art. I love nature, I love finding things that have been created by nature such as semi precious stones and other items from the earth.
I love working with and showcasing the unique beauty that you find in each semi precious stone. I work with mostly Grade A and B semi precious stones; sometimes I use the same stones that are in rough form before they are faceted that you see in a fine piece of jewelry.

Most of the stones I use have been gathered for a year in order to incorporate together into my art. I get them from all around the world from various locations and venders.
Each semi precious stone also has individual properties that generate energetically from the stones. This is by wearing the stone, touching the stones and by having them in a room in your home.

I encourage people to touch the stones on the art to resonate with the properties. I have included some of the properties of the stones in the description so you will be aware of their specific properties; some are healing, energizing, loving, calming, resonate with different chakras, and evoke emotions.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I love creating them.
