A dear friend of the family is a big fan of Alchemy Stones, and recently suggested that we explore some different metaphysical angles with the stone designs.
Specifically, he thought it would be interesting and cool if I could create sets of stones based around the seven chakra colors.
Then the next challenge arose: Coming up with reasonably "matching" stones in groups of seven.
NOT as easy as it sounds! In fact, in going through the hundreds of beach combed stones at our house, I was only able to come up with two groups of stones that seemed like a "good set." Maybe I was being more particular than I needed to be, but it was important that the stones "feel right" together.
The first set I made ended up becoming a present for our friend, who got married in our back yard labyrinth, a few days ago. The second set (pictured above) became Sarah's... but now I feel more confident in working with this concept... it's just a matter of finding nice "matching sets" to work with.
At this point, I am only planning to offer Chakra Stones in matched sets of seven, although I may also make them available as individual stones matched to a particular chakra.
