Beautiful Balance

The word chakra is Sanskrit for wheel. According to ancient Indian medicine, our bodies are made up of six chakras or energy wheels that correspond to nerve ganglia and branches from the spinal column. The chakras are associated with certain colors, body parts and functions. By wearing all six colors, you help your body maintain balance. This necklace is handmade from recycled sterling silver and semi-precious stones by Mindy and Grant Searcey in Los Angeles.

The Chakra System

Base Chakra: Garnet. Located at the base of the spine and is considered your root chakra. This chakra is stimulated by the color red and relates to the immune system, bones and blood.

Sacral Chakra: Carnelian. Related to emotions and sexuality and is stimulated by the color orange. Located in the lower abdomen, this chakra relates to the lower back, hips and pelvis.

Solar Plexus Chakra: Citrine. Located just above the navel and stimulated by the color yellow. Related to the stomach, liver and kidneys.

Heart Chakra: Peridot. Related to love, commitment and happiness and is stimulated by the color green. Located in the center of the chest, its body relations are the upper back, circulatory system and the chest.

Throat Chakra: Iolite. Related to communication and creativity and stimulated by the color blue. It's location is in the center of the neck, literally in the throat, and relates to the mouth, throat and neck.

Third Eye Chakra: Amethyst. Related to intuition and stimulated by the color purple. It is located at the center of the forehead and relates to the ears, brain and nervous system.

Mindy and Grant Searcey

Mindy and Grant Searcey are the husband-wife team behind Searcey Designs, which they founded in 2004. Each has brought their own experiences and outlooks to make their line of jewelry unique and memorable.

Mindy always fancied herself a female Indiana Jones--going so far as to major in anthropology and travel as much as possible. "The treasures and historical relics were fascinating to me," Mindy says. "But to me, the real treasure was to be found in the journey."

After many travels and different jobs, Mindy began making and designing jewelry. She has been doing it for ten years.

Grant has always considered himself an artist. He painted and illustrated professionally before he began designing jewelry in 2004. "Designing jewelry opens up my imagination to a third dimension, allowing me to create an art form that is not limited to a flat surface," he says.

Grant is inspired by organic shapes and natural growth. He strives to make each piece unique and original--so that the wearer can express his or her own individuality.

    Comments about CHAKRA NECKLACE:

    This necklace is missing a strand - which would also give it a more balanced appearance. There are SEVEN chakras. This necklace uses the blue- violet color (iolite) for the throat chakra, which should be blue, and purple (amethyst) for the third eye chakra, which should be blue-violet. What is missing is the Crown Chakra (top of head at front of skull) which should be the purple one. This isn't something folks get to have opinions about - this is just not correct. That said - it is a lovely necklace and appears to be of high quality. Represent the chakras accurately it does not. Perhaps that's why no explanation was included!

      This is a lovely necklace that goes with everything, due to the multi colored stones. It covers the rainbow of the chakra, which makes one feel protected. The only down side is the clasp is a bit difficult.

      Comments about CHAKRA NECKLACE:

      I've had my eye on this necklace for a very long time and finally decided to go ahead and buy it because it goes swimmingly well with any solid colored blouse or dress. I get compliments whenever I wear it. It is very unique and colorful. The chains holding the droplets can twist & tangle around the necklace which requires some attention for the wearer. The only improvement I would want to make to this item is to create links that allow the length of the necklace to be adjustable. I haven't had it long enough to know if it will tarnish, but I will certainly do my part to make sure that doesn't happen. I am certainly interested in this jewelry designer and would gladly purchase from him/her again.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The package was delivered in a timely manner in perfect condition. It was reasonably packaged so that it would fit in my mailbox and didn't have to be delivered to my doorstep in a bulky box, which I really appreciated.

        I gave this as a gift so I can't really review it up front and personal. But the person who received it, absolutely adores it. They said not only was it pretty but quite unique and would go with just about anything.

        Comments about CHAKRA NECKLACE:

        I really like the necklace. Chakra is new to me and this was a nice reminder of chakra. I looked at other jewelry and I found this necklace to be a gentle piece. Offering a choice of lengths would help. Enclosing a card explaining the meaning of the stones would also be nice. I would like to see this necklace made with sterling silver.

        This necklace is very beautiful and well crafted. We did find that the strands are delicate and one of them broke shortly after the first wearing. Still a great purchase and would gladly make it again.

        Gave this as a gift. very pretty, unique and delicate. A little pricey, but different. Came quickly in the mail, but lacked a description of its meaning enclosed with it, taking away from it's intention.
