inspirational totem braceletby Ana Sheldon
- the story
Jewelry designer Ana Sheldon speaks the language of beads. She knows how to assemble their shapes, sizes and the raw materials from which they are made to create poetic phrases that are rich with meaning. In these silver bracelets, she creates a central medallion where she lines her beads up in a row, drawing upon their symbolic meanings and the healing properties attributed to them in alternative healing practices, to evoke aspects of creativity, strength or blessings. They're a beautiful way to remind yourself to refocus on the positive throughout your day, or to express thanks to someone else who exemplifies those virtues. Handmade in USA, Italy and Russia, using beads sourced from all over the world.
Creativity—contains Wood, Picture Jasper, Blue Lace Agate, and Apatite which combined have characteristics for creativity, calming, and acceptance.
Strength—contains Labradorite, White Jade, Onyx, and Rutilated Quartz which combined have characteristics for Focus, Strength and Luck.
Blessings—contains Wood, Ocean Japser, Carnelian, Turquoise, and Jade which combined have characteristics for Appreciation, Good Fortune, and Prosperity.

- the maker
As a child, Ana Sheldon was already using beads to create simple jewelry, and she never lost her love of the medium as she grew older. She studied metalsmithing and jewelry design at Illinois State University, and now she uses those advanced skills to combine metal and beads in new and distinctive ways. Drawing inspiration from the organic shapes of natural stones, she seeks to create sculptural jewelry that brings beauty to everyday wear. collection
