CRIS’S ASTROLOGICAL TALISMAN
The corner of Cris
The condition was that it had to be these stones: landscape jasper and hiddenite. Being part of Cris’s astrological talisman…
BREAKING IT DOWN FOR YOU...
Cu-Cu, Cu-Cu! (Peek-a-boo, peek-a-boo)………that’s copper.!
Cool solid base metal wires.
If you don’t have them… you can make them yourself!… and then, they’re even cooler!
~~~~~~~~ And we jewellers also work as carpenters!
*･↝ °◠☆人*´｡*ﾟ◕*.✧｡•̀✧☆▽☆*˘*｡*♡◍•✧*。｡.ﾟ｡･ Every talisman must have its own space, where it rests when we’re not wearing it. Cris’s amulet has its “own room”, where it can be safely put away so that it doesn’t get scratched or get warped out of shape or get entangled with other pendants and charms. It’s also in contact with another of its component minerals, a stunning hiddenite hand-piece *･↝ ͒
By the way, the whole thing of combining hiddenite, landscape jasper, copper, silver, the shape, the method, the means…. (๑¯◡¯๑)➝ *☆｡*ﾟ☆*.✧

THE RESULT !
☆ﾟ.*･｡ﾟ.*･｡ﾟ☆ﾟ.*･｡ﾟ☆ﾟ.*･｡ﾟ Once we made our final selection on which landscape jasper and hiddenite stones we would use, and despite having had some initial doubts as to whether aesthetically they would be compatible, we soon saw that these two were a match made in heaven! They were destined to find each other and form a whole. We left no stone unturned and persisted until we found a way to make them meet! Seeing these two and placing them side by side… there were no longer any doubts! Isn’t that right, @iki222?, THESE TWO WERE MEANT TO BE! (｡•̀ᴗ-)✧.
Then came the design. Which metals should be present in the talisman and which ones should not? How should they be integrated into this unique piece? What forms, types and shapes should we use to signify certain specific things?… All of this took some time (I got a mountain of support from Cris and want to thank her heaps for her patience!). It just so happens that projects with a Why, with a Reason for Being, with a Story, in short, projects with Heart and Soul are like living beings: they need to start just like that, like an embryo of a project. Then they need a gestation period, they need time to form and develop. And, in the end…they work out famously!(◍•ᴗ•◍)✧*
And all that time in between, there are more practical questions: originality, little symmetry, that it be comfortable to wear, that if at some point you couldn’t put it on over your head, there were the possibility of a clasp in the front… From there on out, it’s the jewel’s turn to shine and to be what it was intended and created for! (｡•̀ᴗ-)✧•́ ,｡:ﾟ`;｡✧*☆ﾟ.*･｡ﾟ´°｡:ﾟ｡;´*˘*.｡*♡｡:`｡☆｡
Thank you so much Emma, I couldn’t be more in love with my talisman pendant… When I dreamed of the talisman you were handcrafting just for me, I never imagined it would be as beautiful as it is in person!…
The stones are gorgeous and the respect you showed towards them through your unerring design, well, I couldn’t be happier! Now if I don’t put it on, I feel like I’m naked.
Well, from now on you can count on me recommending you to all my astrology clients so that you can make them their own personalized, custom made talismans.
