'Crystal Kintsugi' wounded healer Amethyst necklace
'Crystal kintsugi' ~ sometimes a damaged crystal still has so much life and energy within that I just cannot discard it. Like us people, no need for past knocks and bruises to define our capabilities. Often the wounded healers have deep wisdom to share. This crystal spirit is now paired with genuine 24 carat gold to celebrate its beauty and to remind you of yours.
KINTSUGI (‘golden joinery’) also known as Kintsukuroi (‘golden repair’) is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. Kintsugi can be seen to have similarities to the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, an embracing of the flawed or imperfect.
The Amethyst is approx. 3 cm (1.2") wide and the long braid length can be adjusted through a knotted channel so you can wear this as short or long as you wish.
You'll receive this crystal healing necklace in one of Spirit Carrier's handmade fabric draw-string pouches - great for the safe-keeping of the necklace. Gift-wrapped at no extra charge.
