- the story
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.

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.
