Teodoro Melendez and Family Sterling silver and gemstone jewelry
"One of my most cherished moment was when I had a small workshop and my children, Carlos and Alicia, where with me while I was cutting gems by hand."
Gemstone chakra bracelet, "Inner Balance"
Knotted by hand on macrame cords, gemstones represent the seven chakras. The word means "wheel" and refers to the points of spiritual and physical energy in the human body. Violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red represent the crown, brow, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral and root, and each is linked to a different mantra. By Rituu in India, this beautiful bracelet combines amethyst, lapis lazuli, pale blue amazonite and rose quartz with golden tiger's eye, carnelian and onyx. It is designed to foster balance and harmony in life. The bracelet can be adjusted in length by sliding the knot along the cords, and hematite adorns each end.
Multi-gemstone chakra bracelet, "Well-Being"
From Rituu's chakra jewelry collection, this hand-knotted bracelet captivates with glistening gems, each associated with a chakra. There are seven chakra or energy vortexes in the body, and their alignment results in a sense of well-being, with gemstones aiding the process. They are always present in multiples of seven, and for this necklace Rituu includes onyx, carnelian, tiger's eye, lapis, amethyst, amazonite, and rose quartz. The clear and light purple stones are associated with the 7th chakra (awareness and wisdom); the purple, violet and indigo gems with the 6th chakra (insight and perception), and the blue or light blue with the 5th chakra, that of communication and truth. Green and pink stones for love and compassion, linked to the heart, are on the 4th chakra. For inner power and will, the 3rd chakra is associated with yellow gems whereas emotion and sexuality are linked to red and orange gems for the 2nd chakra. Black gems are used to stimulate the 1st chakra, that of stability and security. Hematite beads help pull the sliding knot to the desired length.
Alfredo Inga showcases amazonite in his designs, featured in his vast collection of filigree earrings. Alfredo was born in Catacos, Peru's "Filigree City" where he taught by friends when he was only 11 years old. He went to Israel on a scholarship, which he won as a prize in filigree contest. He was offered a teaching position there, but loves Peru too much to stay away.
Patricia Jara is so enchanted with the traditional arts of Peru, that she has traveled far and wide to experience regional art forms. Her collection of amazonite rings and pendant necklaces treasures the Inca's flair for geometric harmony as well as her individual sense of modern elegance.
Guena, who graduated as an accountant, confides he has more patience for art than for logic. Through art, he tells us, one experiences beauty to the maximum, as well as moments of spiritual freedom. Enchanted by amazonite, he transforms the gem into the lush leaves of gemstone tree sculptures.
