Lava rock is a stone of strength, protection and stability in times of change. Some believe that they can help disperse anger, provide guidance in decisions, and guide you in times of change.
Each lava bead and bracelet is completely unique - no two are exactly alike.
How to use lava beads with essential oils:
Since lava rock is porous, it is a natural way to enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy all day long. Gently place a drop of essential oil to one of the beads (you can use your finger or a Q-tip as well). Choose a single oil or create your favorite blend by applying more than one oil to a single bead or color coding your favorite oils with different colored beads. The beads will absorb the oils fairly quickly but may appear wet for a short time.
About the Materials
Arizona is known for five things: cattle, citrus, climate, copper and cotton. We've incorporated a few of these elements into our jewelry.
Turquoise - This precious stone holds a long history in the Southwest. Believed to bring strength to the wearer and help them overcome illness, turquoise has long been valued throughout the region.
Copper - We use copper to represent Arizona, the "Copper State". Even today, there are many working copper mines in the state.
Silver - In the 1800s, Navajo (Diné) artists began working silver after learning the art from Mexican silversmiths. The Zuni soon began trading their livestock for silver-smithing instruction; and by the late 1800s, Zuni smiths had taught the Hopi.
