White Brass, NuGold, and Sterling Silver are the material I used to fabricate these divine Lotus Flower earrings. White Brass which is the main part of the earrings looks like silver with a hue of gold. They are light weight and very comfortable to wear. The ear wire is 18 gauge sterling silver just a bit thicker than standard 20 gauge and are for those accustomed to wearing earrings. If you have very small piercing I am happy to exchange them for a finer wire. I do now offer also 20 gauge hypoallergenic titanium ear wire. Use a silver cleaning cloth for polishing if needed.

Earring Length: 2 1/4″ Earring Width: 2″

One earring weights 6.8 gram… a dime and a nickel together weigh 7.2 gram.

The picture with two sets of earrings shows the sterling silver once as well.

The lotus flower is one of the most ancient and deepest symbols of our planet and has strong symbolic ties to many Asian religions especially throughout India. The lotus flower starts as a small flower down at the bottom of a pond in the mud and muck. It slowly grows up towards the water’s surface continually moving towards the light. Once it come to the surface of the water the lotus flower begins to blossom and turn into a beautiful flower. Within Hinduism and Buddhism the lotus flower has become a symbol for awakening to the spiritual reality of life. Untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind. The lotus flower represents long life, health, honor and good luck.

This Hoop Earrings are created to honor our Solar Plexus. The sun is an emblem of glory and brilliance. It is also a symbol of authority. It represents happiness, life and spirituality. Fabricated from brass and a little bit of copper, the ear wires is sterling silver.

SIZE: 2 1/2 x 2 1/2”, lightweight

There is a real sun center in us, the Solar (or Sun) Plexus. This is a great nerve center situated back of the stomach. When this central Sun, from which all the nerves of the body radiate, is in its normal condition, it steadily radiates a real energy, just as the sun does. This energy vibrates through the nerve highways and by-ways of the body out toward the surface of the body in all directions (the mucous membranous surface, as well as the outer skin), and is thrown off in a real halo or atmosphere, which always envelopes the body. The Sun can be considered our inner King, the one who rules and takes considered action.

There is a matching necklace for these hoops please click on the link below: http://www.etsy.com/listing/73834362/sun-and-moon-talisman

Lotus Root Bracelet with Abalone

SPIRITUAL JOURNEY BRACELET $250

Lotus Roots, Abalone, Lost Wax Cast, Organic, Tribal, Statement / Artisan Jewelry, Chakra Work, Handmade

For more pics click on the link below:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/128034168/spiritual-journey-bracelet-lotus-roots

A glamorous, original piece of wearable art… don’t you think ?

Hand fabricated by me in the ancient method of lost wax cast using slices of a Lotus Root … indigenous to Asia and found underwater, the root of the lotus flower. The cast is in Ancient Bronze darkened with patina than polished to sparkle at the edges. Beautiful Abalone stones showing a color play of bright blues, turquoise, and pink adorn the lotus roots in its centers. Sterling silver is used for the links, clasp, and stone setting. The bracelet is form fitted and lays comfortable around the wrist also to say it is not a flimsy little piece but has a little bit of weight. Links can be added if you need the bracelet to be longer.

Bracelet Length: 7”
Bracelet Width: 1 3/4” at widest point
Stone Size: 16 x 16mm

The lotus has been a potent emblem in India for thousands of years. The plant grows up from muddy waters to the surface of a lake and blossoms in the light, symbolizing human growth: we are often submerged in the muddy waters of our subconscious and may obstinately push our roots deeper into the mud, but this will eventually make us stronger. Once we break free, we grow upward, overcoming anything disturbing in our emotions and push the flower but out of the water, thus nurturing our spiritual self in our journey toward the spiritual sun.

Although not a crystal, abalone shell has been used for centuries in jewelry and carvings. Nicknamed the sea ears, the Abalone’s flattened, oval shape with iridescent interior was used by the Native Northwest American Indians as a natural vessel for cleansing, offerings and prayers. This unique shell embodies all the aspects of the water element including love, beauty, gentleness, caring, comfort, peacefulness, delight and solace.  Abalone is useful for handling and calming emotional situations and is very soothing to the mind/body. When working through any emotional situation, have abalone nearby as it is believed to be beneficial and promotes cooperation. Abalone is associated with all the Chakra energies. In particular, it seems to work the best on the Solar Plexus Chakra, stimulating that gut feeling. Abalone is especially good for the Heart Chakra, as it gently clears the heart of fear, sorrow and negative emotions. Abalone allows your intuitive resources to stimulate psychic development and intuition through the Third Eye Chakra .

Golden Spiral Earrings

For more pics click on the link below:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/122306453/spiral-earrings-spiritual-symbol-big

Playing around with my new acquired rolling mill I created some funky, earthy spiral earrings I have been thinking about for a while. The patina on the Nugold metal creates a dark iridescent hue giving it an ancient mystical golden look. The earrings are sealed so your earlobe is protected and will not get colored.

Earring Length: 2 2/8”
Earring Widht:1 1/8”

Very comfortable to wear and not that heavy at all, one earrings weights 6.6 gram. The ear wire is about 18 gauge and are for those accustomed to wearing earrings.

The Spiral, which is the oldest symbol known to be used in spiritual practices, reflects the universal pattern of growth and evolution. The spiral represents the goddess, the womb, fertility and life force energy. Reflected in the natural world, the Spiral is found in human physiology, plants, minerals, animals, energy patterns, weather, growth and death. The Spiral is a sacred symbol that reminds us of our evolving journey in life. When used as a personal talisman, the Spiral helps consciousness to accept the turnings and changes of life as it evolves. The acceptance of change is one of the greatest freedoms a human can experience, putting consciousness in the present moment where the power of creation is condensed. On a larger scale, using this symbol assures all beings are reminded of their inward and outward evolution, a balanced and centered state of mind. On water, it carries the power to flow and change.

In the Orient the dragon is depicted as a union of the beneficial powers of the elements.

As a totem, the Dragon serves as a powerful guardian and guide. Encourage communication with your Dragon, and acknowledge your Dragon’s presence as often as possible. A Dragon totem can be a powerful ally in our daily effort to live our lives.

Brass energetically can be used as a shield.

For more pics click on the link below:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/118060034/lunar-goddess-with-rainbow-moonstone

Lost wax casting is the process I used to create this gorges goddess. Starting with a compact block of hard wax I carved out my beloved model to perfection to create a mold so I can pour her into any metal of desire. This one is in bronze which has been darkened with patina to give it an antique mystic look. It is not a flimsy little piece but has the weight of a strong woman. The Goddess has a Rainbow Moonstone as her flowering womb and a long charming copper chain than you can adjust in length by hooking the clasp in any of the circular links.

Goddess Length: 3”
Chain Length: 30”

The Lunar Hoop Earrings are a nice match you can find them under following link:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/102517270/luna-hoop-earrings-with-rainbow

The energy of Moonstone is balancing, introspective, reflective, and lunar. It is capable of helping one with the changing structures of one’s life on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. The energy relates to “new beginnings”, allowing one to realize that these “new beginnings” are in actuality, the fruition of each “end”. Once called the “traveler’s stone”, it is used for protection against the perils of travel. Moonstone is also a talisman of good fortune. It is said to keep closer that which is dear to one. Rainbow Moonstone carries the vibration of cosmic light and offers spiritual healing for the whole of humanity.

Copper can conduct electrical impulses and can magnify the energy transfer, from the healer of from minerals, to the subject of the healing. Used with brass and iron, it can balance the energies of the body and can maintain stability and wellness within the chemistry of the blood and cellular structures.

ROMAN CHAIN BRACELET WITH BLUE TOPAZ $280

aka Egyptian Queen, Golden, Loop in Loop Pattern, Ancient Chain Making, Antique Finish, Handmade Artistry

To view more pics click on the link below

https://www.etsy.com/listing/114055067/roman-chain-bracelet-with-blue-topaz-aka

How would you like to own a chain similar to the one worn by an Egyptian queen almost 3500 years ago? It is now usually called the Roman chain; also it is described in Jewels of the Pharaohs, Illustration No. 45. by Cyril Aldred. According to this book the chain belonged to Queen Ah-Hotpe between 1540 and 1580 B.C.

While working on the chain I feel deeply connected to ancient times its mysticism and spirituality. Putting all those handmade links together took a lot of patience and care but it was an ecstatic, rhythmic, mediation, soul music… feeling connected to the artistry way back then.

Constructed in the Roman loop-in-loop pattern, this chain in NuGold* is a classic expression of chain making art… fluid yet weighty, delicate but strong. The chain has been oxidized to give it an antique finish. I have place the chain in brass caps adorned by blue Topaz bullets set in fine silver. Each component of this bracelet is hand-fabricated by me.
*NuGold also known as “Merlin’s Gold” is a red brass alloy which contains no Nickel, perfect for those with nickel allergies. With its rich warm color when polished resembles gold without the high cost of gold; tarnishes considerable slower than copper and is easy to clean.

Bracelet Length: 7.5” fitting a wrist size 6 – 6 3/4”

This bracelet also comes in copper with Red Garnet please see following link:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/113228404/roman-chain-bracelet-with-garnets-aka

Blue Topaz is a mellow, empathetic stone that directs energy to where it is needed most. It soothes, heals, stimulates, recharges, remotivates, and aligns the meridians of the body. This stone can be used to manifest health. This crystal brings about a trust in the universe that enables you to “be” rather than to “do”. It cuts through doubt and uncertainty.  Topaz’s vibrant energy brings joy, generosity, abundance, and good health. It has traditionally been known as a stone of love and good fortune, bringing successful attainment of goals. It is extremely supportive for affirmations and manifestations and for visualization. Blue Topaz, placed on the throat chakra or third eye, aids those chakras and verbalization. It is an excellent color for meditation and attuning to the higher self, assisting in living according your own aspirations and views. This color attunes to the angels of truth and wisdom. It assists in seeing the scripts you have been living by and to recognize where you have strayed from your own truth.

https://www.etsy.com/listing/101999249/goddess-bracelet-sarasvati-lakshmi-kuan

The use of cold connections is a jewelry making technique that is connecting rings, washers, disks, and other metal shapes without the use of a torch or kiln. For this lovely goddess bracelet I used three colorful sealed images, little nails, copper washers, brass metal sheet, and heavy copper wire for the jump rings. This bracelet is by far a flimsy piece it has a bit of a weight. I love the natural feel of the metals, the gold came out just stunning, and the eclectic look added by the goddesses turned this bracelet into a beautiful work of art. Read more about Sarasvati, Lakshmi, and Kuan Yin below.

Bracelet Length: 6 1/2”

Extension Length: 2”

Bracelet Width: 1 1/4”

The bracelet is adjustable and fits a small to a large wrist.

The Hindu goddess of the arts, Sarasvati helps us with all creative expressions, such as music, writing, dancing, and eloquent speaking. The wife of Brahma, Sarasvati prizes knowledge and creative expression above material possessions. Her symbols include a white swan, the vina musical instrument, and a book of knowledge. She helps us focus our minds on our creative projects, and not get distracted or procrastinate.
Lakshmi is a beautiful and benevolent Hindu goddess who brings abundance to those who call upon her. Lakshmi’s connection to lotus flowers, elephants, and water represents her absolute faith in the fertility and abundance available to everyone. She is happy to bring supply to you, whether that means money, time, knowledge, ore opportunity.
The Eastern goddess Kuan Yin hears all prayers and is the essence of purity, nurturing love, and gentle power. Kuan Yin is a bodhisattva, meaning that she’s eligible for Buddhahood, yet she has vowed to stay near Earth until all beings are enlightened. This youthful and beautiful goddess helps us feel compassion and mercy toward ourselves and others. She’s also a portectress of women and children, and she awakens musical interests and abilities as well as psychic clairvoyance.

This cuffs reminds me of a hidden treasure from a long forgotten time when every piece of jewelry was hand forged by one artist to perfection and believe me this is what I did. I think my bicep grew a couple of inches.

The technique I used to get the metal into this soft outward wave is called anticlastic shell forming. The metal is NuGold which after some time turns into this rich orange golden hue. Of course I had to play around a little bit with the antiquing too ;D
They are very smooth and comfortable cuffs for a wrist size of 6 ½” give or take since it is adjustable.

CELTIC CROSS ROSE PENDANT $225 

Golden, Rose, Triple Layer Chain, Hand Crafted, Metalsmithed, Bohemian Artisan Jewelry
To view more pics click on the link below:

The Celtic cross is hand sawn out of NuGold metal, filed, sanded, than finely textured. The adorable dried mini rose is preserved in a copper bezel filed with resin. The bezel is half way set back and connected to the cross by some creative riveting.  A fine triple layer antiqued brass chain adorns this pendant which is broke up by little copper disk for some extra movement and sparkle. I like to create unique pieces of jewelry that have a handcrafted look with a mystical, other-worldly feel  I am very happy with the end result of this piece.
Amulet Length: 3 1/4″ Longest Chain Length: 30” Middle Chain Length: 23” Shortest Chain Length: 15” Extension Length: 4 ½” All chains are connected at the clasp.
The symbolism of the Celtic cross is indicative of the human desire to know and experience the unfolding mystery of life. The cross is also a symbol representing the meeting place of the Divine energies. At the center of the cross-section is the energetic touchstone where a concentration of cosmic power resides. The circles around the cross bring meaning of unification, totality, wholeness and inclusion.
The rose is perhaps the most mystical and beautiful of symbols to love and beauty. The rose possesses both beauty and pain; one cannot have the fragrant blossom without the accompanying thorns. As with the rose, so too in life we must take the good with the bad, the cross with the crown, the dark with the light, the pain with the joy. May you accept your errors and transmute them from the bitterness of self-blame to the sweetness of self-love.

compromises while also being protected from psychological damage. It was said to
make violent-tempered people sensitive and tolerant. This is apparently why
Cleopatra carried a chrysocolla with her wherever she went.

LOTUS FLOWER NECKLACE $89

To view more pics click on the link below:

http://www.etsy.com/listing/76023194/lotus-flower-necklace

The lotus flower is one of the most ancient and deepest symbols of our planet and has strong symbolic ties to many Asian religions especially throughout India. The lotus flower starts as a small flower down at the bottom of a pond in the mud and muck. It slowly grows up towards the water’s surface continually moving towards the light. Once it comes to the surface of the water the lotus flower begins to blossom and turn into a beautiful flower. Within Hinduism and Buddhism the lotus flower has become a symbol for awakening to the spiritual reality of life. Untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind. The lotus flower represents long life, health, honor and good luck.

Necklace Length: 16″
Extension Length: 3″
Pendant Length: 2 1/4″ x 2”

I used copper to create the links for the chain and the spiral clasp, sterling silver for the jump rings and spirals on the lotus the Lotus Flower itself is brass. Through annealing and forging I reached this beautiful antique golden glow.

Since this necklace is made to reorder results of the annealing and forging are not always the same, colors may change slightly, but the final result is always beautiful and unique. I will respect the method and measures you see on the photo and I will make it with the same care and dedication. For this reason, any difference with the photo is a happy touch of the handmade job.

  1. Silvia Peluso: Ancient Wisdom, present consciousness and future Creations of Spirit

    What can I say – I am Blessed to have been guided to one of the most fascinating, imaginative, Spiritually aware artists of our time: Silvia Peluso.

    Please understand that I am writing this without Silvia’s knowledge, or anticipation of gain. I am scribing this merely because I have been so overwhelmed by her Creative abilities and boundless talent, that I must share my discovery with others.

    I found Silvia by Divine “accident:” I was looking at a Google search for boulder opals, when I came across one photo in particular. I had never seen anything quite like it. It was not an assembly line necklace, nor was it a “crafty” looking amateur piece with plastic beads. There was something more to it that I could not put my finger on. Curiosity got the best of me, so I clicked on the photo hoping to see more. What I found was a piece of jewelry that had been built from the proverbial ground up, with such meaning, from the base metals, to the gems, to each handcrafted link, that I was driven to make a connection with the person capable of such wisdom and ability.

    The description told a story of it’s inception, and the meaning behind the necklace as a whole. It also explained in detail what each metal meant, and what it brought to the piece. She told of the gem’s healing powers, how each resonated with the other to reinforce its positive effects. It was like medicine for the body, mind and Spirit, wrapped up in the love of a true Mother Goddess.

    I was so in tune with what I was reading – I felt as if I had written it myself. I could see “out-loud” if you will, what every spiral meant, the love that formed each link, and the creativity in the clasp that made it a sacred circle. I began thinking of how I could ever afford such artistry. It would be just my luck that the artist who Created these amazing things were so expensive that I would be unable to reach out in hopes of collaboration. But I was to be ever so pleasantly surprised.

    I had been looking for someone to Create an item for me, and had been coming up empty. I knew that the person would have to be of sound Spiritual Energy to bring my idea into being. I have tried to wear jewelry made for me before, and things would go, well, wonky. As a scientist, I knew that the very thought was ridiculous, but nonetheless, each time I wore a different item, things would go terribly wrong. I just assumed that my Energy was so weird, that nothing beautiful like the pieces I saw on Silvia’s site would ever grace by body.

    I decided to take my chances and reach out through an email – I honestly did not think I’d get a response. But to my surprise, I received a beautiful letter in return, welcoming my business, my thoughts and my weird Energy, too. I was so thrilled, that we began a correspondence about life, things that matter, and beauty in the overlooked. When the subject of price came up, the best anyone could do at that particular juncture was an estimate. So I braced myself – and what I was given as an approximate cost so shocked me, that I had to enlarge the font to be certain I was reading it correctly. Affordable isn’t quite the right word – ridiculously inexpensive comes to mind. So much genius – so humble a price.

    While awaiting the arrival of my opals from Australia, I purchased one of Silvia’s Creations: an ammonite necklace. It was coming up to my birthday, and really wanted to wear it for the occasion. Silvia went out of her way to be certain that I would have that opportunity. My sense of here was confirmed upon opening that package – such a marvelous thing!

    After my opals arrived, I said “Hello” to them, welcomed their history and immortality into my home, and sent them off to Silvia. My idea was a combination of one of her previous Creations: The Lotus Flower Necklace. The first time I saw it was while holding one of my opals – at that instant, I had an “Ah-ha” moment for more than merely a necklace. I saw the representation of a Soul, beaming through the matrix of a boulder opal. It was the Soul’s Super Nova – Gamma rays of Life so powerful as to Create the Soul, and express it’s Glory through the colors that ripple and flash through it’s body, superceding the flesh of rock, just as It does our flesh. One second of a Gamma Ray burst is more energetic than the power of our Sun in it’s entire lifetime. The prism of colors, each unique to it’s container, undulate through the rainbow and beyond the infrared and ultra violet, into infinity. The sparkling palette of the Soul’s Super Nova takes billion of years to reach the human eyes on this planet, and in a cosmological instant, it is on to the next stop in the cycle of life, a new incarnation. At the speed of light, our Soul’s Super Nova, as represented through a unique Boulder opal, courses across the Galaxies, to the very edge of the universe and beyond, into the expansion.

    It was a Vision indeed, a Waking Dream. It was exactly how I see all Living Beings – the Soul, a Gift from The Divine, bursting through the physical body that we, as mortal Creatures, have created. I knew in my Heart that Silvia was more than an Artist – she is a Gift herself, from the Divine. Only a Creative Goddess, Like Silvia, Gifted with her artistic abilities directly from The Divine, could harness my vision and bring it to fruition as an accurate representation of my Beliefs. Each metal chosen for it’s metaphysical abilities, every Spiral signifying the one-ness of all Living Things – Silvia is able to see beyond the obvious, and into a Sacred realm of the Spirit. The Lotus she Created was such an obvious choice for me: The picture in my mind’s eye of Buddha rising above the muck from which the Lotus blooms, raising him above the mire of pettiness, materialism and needs of the flesh. By placing an infinitely unique boulder opal, a representation of a Soul’s Singularity, both in cosmological terms and in quantity, within the Glorious Lotus Blossom, my Vision was made manifest by a Goddess of Light and Creation – Silvia.

    Silvia creates in the same way the rest of us breathe. Take away her breath, and she would surely die. But, give her fresh, pure air, blown in by the Divine, and she glows with Life. The Universe is her consort, and together they conceive such magnificently imagined Creations. She gives birth to these Divinely Inspired Love-Children we call art & jewelry, and so very much more. She gave my Vision meaning, and for this I am forever Grateful.

    Thank you Silvia, for your innate wisdom, fearless Creative capabilities and the Bravery to reach into the Unknown. I am proud, Blessed, and Grateful to call you friend.

    Cruzlin,
    What can I say after this… thank you for your beautiful words? Well, you express very much what I feel and I have a deep sense of sisterhood towards you. If you assume your energy is weird than so is mine and I love it! I don’t think I have a big ego so this is not going to my head rather more I am thanking the Universe for using me as a tool to bring happiness to others and visa versa.
    Anyway, you loving my work make me truly happy!
    Love and Blessings,
    Silvia
