 Woof ...Woof I never knew that Tourmaline is usually black,I have always loved the array of colors of tourmaline I have seen like the greens and blues, my girls love the pinks and reds too! There is also what is known as watermelon tourmaline, which is a crystal with green on the outside and pink in the middle.

Malachite Gemstone Meaning

Woof Woof as you all know I am back from my world travels and have found some interesting facts about gemstones that I want to continue to share with you! I love Malachite the color is woof...awesome and something about it just pulls me in..lets see why.
Malachite is believed to be a strong protector of children, It is said to protect the wearer from accidents and protects travelers too ah ha thank goodness I had my malachite bead bracelet on!

 Malachite  is also said to aid  in helping a business become successful and help protect against undesirable business associations. It is also  a stone of balance in relationships, I am balancing a few relationships at the moment, you see  there is Erika the blond poodle then Sammi the Ebony Chihuahua, oh and I cant forget Jolene the fluffy Pomeranian..ooh I need some balance!

Back to Malachite meanings I also found out that the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used malachite for jewelry and ground it to use as eye shadow!! Hmmm maybe I should get some of that eyeshadow for my girls...what do you think?
Check out the malachite wrap bracelet below!

Ciao for now - Love Ringo

Good Luck Elephant Bracelet

Hi fans and followers I have just come back from a trip to India and wanted to share some tails..woof...woof of my adventures with you!! First off I want to start with The elephant symbolism, Elephants are a big part of Buddhism and Hinduism so I wanted to explore this creature's myths and meaning.
I learned to the Hindu way of thought, the elephant is found in the form of Ganesha who is the god of luck, fortune, protection and is a blessing upon all new projects. Ganesha is intent on bulldozing obstacles on your behalf ...woof... howl at the moon I adore this idea ya know I am a little guy and could really use a big strong lady elephant on my side..hee hee!! Ok back to bizness.
Some Asian cultures also believe the elephant is a cosmic creature...ooh  I am feeling sooo 60's here strawberry fields forever, oh sorry got off on a tangent... and carries the world upon it's back (much like the tortoise does in some tribal Native American myths).

If we dream and how I love to dream..woof... the elephants then would be sending us a message that we are able to deal with any obstacle we are faced with at this time. Dream elephants represent power, sovereignty, stability, and stead-fastness. If you dream that you are riding an elephant this suggests you have a tendency to be the leader of the family, and others are heavily depending on you. If you dream of elephants in a circus this suggests you have a cavalier attitude about a situation in your life and you may want to invest more attention to it....hmmm last night I dreamt I was skinny dipping with 4 blond poodles...oh I guess that wouldn't count, ok so forget that please rewind, remember the elephant is strong, powerful and helps to remove any of our obstacles as we all could use from time to time!!
Love to you all-

What are Prayer Beads or Mala's??

Woof Woof , I keep hearing all this talk about "Prayer Beads" Turchin uses them in their jewelry designs so here is what I found. 
 Prayer beads are used by members of various religious traditions such as Roman Catholicism, Orthodox Christianity, Anglicanism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Bahá'í Faith to count the repetitions of prayers, chants or devotions, such as the rosary of Virgin Mary in Christianity and dhikr (remembrance God) in Islam.
 The number of beads also vary I read but this depends on the different religion in use, man you human's have a lot of religions already its hard for this puppy to keep up with them all!!! Islamic prayer beads are called "Misbaha", "Tasbih" or "Tesbih", usually have either 99 or 33 beads. Buddhists and Hindus use the Japa Mala which usually has 108 beads, these are the Mala beads that use...ah ha interesting....HOWL!
I also learned that all kinds of materials are used to make mala beads such as seeds of the rudraksha tree, beads made from the wood of the tulasi plant, animal bone, sandalwood, rosewood, ebonywood, or seeds from the Bodhi tree or seeds of the lotus plant. Semi-precious stones like carnelian and amethyst are also used.
So Cool... I LOVE learning new things I also love the fact that uses these very beautiful and deeply meaningful beads as part of their unique love is the answer inspired jewelry, cause we all know I am just a pudding of a poodle mushy to the wooshy as we say in poodle speak, LOVE to you all -

 Quartz Crystal is a clear variety of quartz that was first found high in the frozen mountains of the Alps. Ancient people believed it was a form of ice crystals that would never melt. It is said to have cooling powers and is a romantic stone. hmmmm woof woof that's pretty silly even I know that quartz is a crystal, I wonder if their were dogs back then?? Any hoo I love those Quartz triple wrap bracelet from Turchin Jewelry.

If given a turquoise by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. Turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home, woof ...Howl give me some of that!!

Lapis lazuli is an ancient gem, and has a storied history. Egyptian cultures made a practice of burying a lapis lazuli scarab with their dead, and believed it to offer protection. WOOF the burying thing again what’s with ancient cultures woof and the dead stuff woof woof it creeps me out! But I do love this Lapis wrap bracelet above sooo chic!

Carnelian has a long and storied past, and was once considered strictly the property of the noble class. People holding a high social status were often buried with this gem stone. woof ewwww...yuyucky I only want to buried with my bone...or maybe this carnelian wrap bracelet above its super cool!

Ganesha Removes Those Nasty Obstacles

Howl....have you heard the Buddhist Ganesha Elephant represents removing obstacles.

An elephant's trunk has the strength to uproot a tree as well as the finesse to pick  up a needle.
Ganesha's trunk symbolises the fact that the wise person has both immense strength and fine discrimination. Ganesha has large ears. The wise person hears all.
He has four hands. In one hand he holds a lotus, the symbol of enlightenment. In the other hand he holds a hatchet. That is, the old karma, all your sankars (values), the accumulated good and bad of past deeds get cut when enlightenment comes.
The third hand holds laddus, the round sweet-meats. They are the rewards of a wise life.
Ganesha is never shown eating the laddus. The wise man never partakes of the rewards of his deeds. He is not attached to them. The fourth hand is shown blessing the people. The wise man wishes the best for everyone.
Woof Woof I think I was an Elephant in another life!
Love and Kindness to you all
