Azure, sky, turquoise, aqua, sea, indigo, teal, cobalt, electric, navy, lapis, cerulean, cornflower, slate, baby, powder, denim, prussian, royal, periwinkle, midnight. Whatever you call it, blue in all its shades is cool, universal, calming, soothing. Blue is the steely surface of a moonlit pool, still as glass. Blue is our blood in its purest form, before it's kissed by the air. Blue is in nature, in all of her elements from water and sky to flame and earth.
The night sky in New Mexico where I live is an exquisite shade of indigo blue that always is thrilling, and inspiring, to see.
The throat chakra, or center of energy, is portrayed by a light shade of blue and represents the intersection of the physical and spiritual body. When this 5th chakra, known as the seat of self-expression and truth, is at its best, we communicate effectively and patiently, and our words emit peace, calmness and love.
I'm inspired by all that blue represents in my jewelry designs. When you wear blue on or near the throat, you openly support gentle, loving communication and a committment to your truth. Here are 15 pieces that draw on the power of blue, incorporating richly color gems of turquoise, Peruvian opal, and jade, and light, ethereal chalcedony (a form of quartz), aquamarine, and hand blown glass.
What is your favorite shade of blue?
