Chakra jewelry is a wonderful concept that applies the energy and healing power of chakras and gemstones into accessorizing to match this knowledge. Making and holding gemstone accessories themselves provides a beautiful way to have a constant reminder of your inner power, a means to cleanse your energy available at all times, and look good in the process.
When first considering what chakra jewelry to wear or purchase consider the environment you will be in when wearing the accessory. If you are going out for a night on the town, red might be a wonderful color to keep you in the physical moment of the environment. You can even add a sunstone to provide an extra boost of energy to the night. If there is an orchestra concert you would be attending you may want a green pendant to enhance your heart chakra and your receptiveness to the emotion of the music.
Body location is also a wonderful image to keep in your mind when choosing a piece to wear. Remember the chakra location, the color and what it is associated with in our personal life. Since red is the color of the root chakra and located at the base of your torso, a belt buckle of ruby or another red stone would be enhanced. A green lapel pin can sit over your heart chakra and bring compliments as well as emotional receptiveness. A turquoise necklace can help bring your throat chakra into alignment and provide you with more confidence and eloquence in your speaking abilities (giving a presentation, socializing at a dinner party, etc)
Chakra Jewelry can also be earrings as well. A wonderful way to help you keep your vision steady and clear is to wear a pair of earrings that have blue sapphires to help open your third eye chakra. There are actual pieces that are crafted particularly to enhance and encourage your chakra growth. The practice and philosophy of Reiki incorporates different stones and symbols into wearable pieces designed for specific chakras.
There is also another route to chakra jewelry that really is more effective to your spiritual growth. The idea is to make your own jewelry. The process is actually quite simple to make effective pendants on your own. The benefits are a personalized feel which is really essential as your spiritual journey is yours alone and cannot be understood by anyone else. Meditating before and even during the process of making a piece of jewelry will add your own personal intention and power to the piece itself.
To get you started you can simply go to amazon or any local boutique store that sells jewelry, holistic jewelry, incense, a spiritual shop if that makes more sense to you. I have found different crystals for as little as a dollar. Online or any craft shop will provide you with copper wire. Simply take this wire and wrap it around the crystal, in any form you wish, cradle the stone in the copper wire. Also at your local craft store you can find lengths of leather or silver chain that you can then thread through a small loop you made in your copper cradle. Or attach the leather with a jewelry clamp. You can spend very little and have extra tools and crystals to make multiple different pendants.
It is not that difficult to make you own jewelry or pendant using copper wire wrapped around a gemstone. Attach a leather or silver band to hang it wherever you would like.
