In the early nineties, I used to create jeweled works of art using copper metal. I was inspired by an elder named 'Scrapie...' He was a native of the Island of St. Vincent. He shared his wisdom and experience with me about his struggles with being an artist, a vendor and an entrepreneur while living and creating in his workshop in the basement of a building in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. As our economy flip-flopped over the years and sales began to decline, I decided to put that craft on hold and focus on where the energy was going. My mentor-friend Scrapie apparently left NYC for greener pastures. I continue on my journey, riding the uncertainties of the choices I was making to cultivate my own 'garden' till present day...These days as the cosmic shift becomes increasingly felt by many beings of 'light' the healing medicine of copper (in particular) is becoming a necessity for helping us to recharge and feel more grounded. Archaeologists have been unearthing copper jewelry for over 200 years revealing that jewelry made from this beautiful shiny metal was very common in ancient societies. Did they know that it was more than jewelry, but might also be medicinally beneficial? Copper is an essential trace mineral that facilitates the activity of several enzymes. This mineral provides a role in the development and maintenance of the cardiovascular system, including the heart, arteries, and other blood vessels, the skeletal system, and the structure and function of the nervous system, including the brain and more.

I'm told that the best stones come from Australia, Iran, Afghanistan, Tibet and south-western USA. Turquoise may also be found in France, Britain, Russia, Poland, Arabia, Egypt, China, Peru and Mexico. The chemical name for Turquoise is aluma phosphate. The color of these stones is commonly the classic color we call Turquoise blue, but it is possible to obtain these stones in other colors. This includes this green stones (which I adore working with) from Tibet, White Turquoise stones, some fairly uncommon purple Turquoise stones (would love to work with purple Turquoise) and the lovely lighter colored sleeping beauty Turquoise. All colors of this stone are becoming hard to get in the natural form. Blue Turquoise forms when there is copper present, Green Turquoise forms when there is iron present. Although White Turquoise is known to form when neither of these minerals occur in the stone... white stones are quite rare, although you may sometimes see white areas in the blue or green stones. www.cowrieshell.com
