Wearing Black Tourmaline Crystal for Protection and Grounding

Necklace by BOYBEADS New York, NY

Black tourmaline is, in my opinion, the best crystal anyone can wear for grounding and protection for negative energies. Tourmaline cleanses dense energy and transforms it to light, positive energy in people and in space. It grounds and balances all of the chakras and is beneficial for all zodiacs.

Two-tone goldplated .925 sterling silver chain allows for easily interchanging both silver and gold pendants. This chain is lightweight and made in Italy. Stamped P. Lux Italy 925. High quality import.
This elegant chain is a very classy 18 inches long and is good for men and women; Pendant: 1.25 inches including bale; this pendant can be removed from the necklace and worn separately; the necklace can be worn without the pendant. Each black tourmaline pendant is natural and will be similar to the one in the photo but with a slightly different size and cut.
Necklace available at BOYBEADS

Black Friday 2018 Sale...Preview

If you're anything like me, you don't like waiting around wondering what deals will be offered for Black Friday. This year, we're giving you the details upfront so you know exactly what to expect. Advance notice allows you to plan the smartest shopping method for your holiday gifting needs.

Here's the scoop...

For centuries, the skull has served as a gentle reminder of the brevity of human life in comparison to eternity. It is not used to cause fear or evil- rather, as a token of respect for human life and of remembrance of those no longer among the living. 

Great Jewelry is Always in Season

I love that jewelry is always in season. In the heat of summer and in the cold of winter, your favorite stones can caress your wrists. Even if they are hidden under layers of cashmere and wool, you know that your gems are with you because you can feel them pressing against your skin. 

When in Texas...HEB Grocery Shopping

New York has much to offer, but when it comes to grocery stores, the grand prize most certainly goes elsewhere. I'm delighted to have the convenience of corner delis and mini marts all over the city, but there's nothing quite like the massive grocery shopping centers in other parts of the country where ground space is not limited.

I'm in Houston visiting family this week and my favorite place in the city (aside from the Menil Collection) is the HEB grocery store chain. Talk about options!

50 varieties of specialty cheeses. FRESH fruit! I'm not sure I'll ever go back to NYC.
But, when I do, I'll certainly need to hit the gym to burn off the extra pounds I have accumulated.

My companions for today...

8 New Bracelets for Autumn

We've been busy working on the new collection to release in time for the holiday season and here it is! What do you think about the Blake bracelet collection? This collection features grounding wood and matte black onyx with a third accent bead to offset each bracelet.

Blake is very ambitious and has achieved financial success at a young age. He has amassed more wealth than he will ever spend in his lifetime. However, Blake does not like spending his money. He rarely ever spends on anything that isn't a necessity. His apartment is nearly empty, with only a simple wood framed bed and a pub table. 

Shop the Blake collection.
