Elements Series; incorporating semi-precious stone and unique pieces of the earth in a creative way.

This painting is part of my mixed media “ELEMENTS” Series where I want to bring in elements on the earth into my art. I love nature, I love finding things that have been created by nature such as semi precious stones and other items from the earth.

I love working with and showcasing the unique beauty that you find in each semi precious stone. I work with mostly Grade A and B semi precious stones; sometimes I use the same stones that are in rough form before they are faceted that you see in a fine piece of jewelry.

Most of the stones I use have been gathered for a year in order to incorporate together into my art. I get them from all around the world from various locations and venders.

Each semi precious stone also has individual properties that generate energetically from the stones. This is by wearing the stone, touching the stones and by having them in a room in your home.

I encourage people to touch the stones on the art to resonate with the properties. I have included some of the properties of the stones in the description so you will be aware of their specific properties; some are healing, energizing, loving, calming, resonate with different chakras, and evoke emotions.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I love creating them.

From the Artist:

This painting was inspired by fire. When I first got the largest piece of agate at the top of this painting I immediately thought of fire. I then collected other pieces of agate that also reminded me of fire and put them together to resemble a large flame of fire as a whole.

I love copper and thought that the color  further enhanced the stones and wanted to use it. I took and molded the copper (which is genuine copper sheet) to the individual agate pieces. By doing this I thought that the stones really popped and the copper catches the light and really makes it stand out.

This whole painting changes in different lights and really shines making it truly unique.

 

Stones Used: 

Agate: Protection, Strength, Harmony. Agate’s most noticeable properties  overall are balancing yin/yang energy, courage, protection, healing, and calming.

Agate is a stone of strength. It was used by the Ancients on the breastplates of armor to give warriors strength and make them victorious in battle. Energetically, it is considered to give strength in both battle and physically.

Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. It is also known as a good luck stone. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin/yang energy. Agate increases energy. However, because it is a grounding stone, it does not increase energy at all times, but rather enables bursts of energy as needed. In this way, agate is a conservation stone,  and enhances longevity.

Agate is a very protective stone. It is especially protective for children, and makes an excellent stone for children’s amulets,  medicine bags, jewelry, or just to carry around in a pocket. Agates are said to be especially useful for protecting children from falling.

Emotionally, agate gives courage, emotional strength, self-confidence, and dispels fears. It can also lessen feelings of envy by grounding the emotions. In the same way, it assists with acceptance of all things. It can be very beneficial for self-examination as well as examination of the circumstances one finds oneself in. These qualities make agate superior for easing anxiety and stress.   Plume agates are especially helpful for anxiety and stress relief.  Particularly when placed on the Solar Plexus (3rd) Chakra it can help one to accept one’s emotions, thereby helping overcome those emotions that one wants to remove.

Because of the harmonizing qualities of agate, and its emotional energies of removing and releasing resentments and bitterness, it is also considered by many to be an excellent stone for helping to heal and improve relationships.

Agate can cleanse and stabilize the aura by removing and/or transforming negative energy.

As far as relationships go, agate is a stone of marital and romantic fidelity.

Agate is said to strengthen the body and the body’s connection to the earth. It also increases energy. Agate is used in crystal healing for healing of all kinds by bringing the elements of the healee into harmony. Physically, agate is said to be particularly helpful with tooth and gum issues, stomach problems, physical endurance, insomnia. Note that healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing and are not prescriptions or healthcare information.

White agate is especially considered a stone of hope.

Chakras: All  agates can remove blockages from any chakra. Agate also relates  to specific chakras according to the stone color.
