These were created atop my hill in my Appalachian Studio by myself, Christine Keller- International Jewelry Designer.
Onyx is a protective stone worn when facing adversaries in battles of conflicts of all kinds, or while hurrying down a dark street late at night. Indians and Persians believed that wearing onyx protected them from the evil eye, and that placing onyx on the stomach of a pregnant woman in labor would reduce the labor pain and bring on earlier delivery. Onyx gives strength. It promotes vigor, steadfastness and stamina. Imparts self-confidence, helping you to be at ease in your surroundings. Onyx banishes grief, enhances self-control and stimulates the power of wise decision-making.
Copper is a Magic metal- If tradition is to believed, both Copper and Brass (to a lesser degree) have healing properties. Copper is allegedly a strong conductor of energy, and an aid for exhaustion. This makes sense as it is used for electrical wiring. Copper is also supposed to detoxify the body, drawing toxins out from your system through the skin where the copper is worn. These therapeutic properties are evidenced by oxidation, turning your skin green when the piece is not sealed. I have been told by countless customers, that it does indeed relieve arthritis pain. I know from my own experience that if I am eating clean and wear copper, I do not turn green but let my diet be full of sugars and carbs and I will indeed turn green from the toxins. Hospitals also realize the benefits of copper as a movement is now on the replace push plates on doors and equipment in operating room with copper. 95% of hospital germs will live on stainless steel up to 72 hours- THOSE SAME GERMS WILL DIE ON COPPER WITHIN 5 MINUTES! This would save countless people extra long stays that have contracted mersa and other germs from the hospital environment. Brass has the same properties as copper, not quite as strong but has the added benefit of being said to assist in healing the skeletal structure, and is conductive to spiritual and mental healing, self discipline and strength.
