Here is my favourite creation – the Colonial earrings. These blue jade and pearls earrings should put you instantly in your best festive, beach mood. Why are these earrings names “the Colonial”? Well, the reason behind such an intriguing name is rather simple. I created these earrings for a French-Swedish friend of mine, Anna, who went to Cuba on vacation. The hotel where she and her boyfriend stayed is called the Colonial. By the way, I personally recommended this piece of paradise to them, as it is definitely the best hotel in all of Cuba. It is situated on the Cayo Coco island, and each time my husband and I are on vacation, that’s our favourite place to be! We love it for numerous reasons: great beaches, fresh drinks, delicious food, incredibly friendly staff, and comfy, spacious rooms.
My friends had to make a 10 hours long stopover in Montreal on their way to Cuba. Thus I decided to make a gift for Anna, whom I hadn’t seen for 5 years. I didn’t know what it might be, but I let my imagination take me back to the Colonial Hotel. And I can assure you that these earrings represent a whole lot for me. Sun, ocean, the refreshing Cuban beer Crystal, the splendid red Chilean wine that I love so much, and that goes so well with the Spanish prosciutto they serve. By the way, their prosciutto is the best prosciutto in the World. Shouldn’t forget either about those sweet guavas that helped us start our mornings, and the myriad flavours of Cuban ice-cream on offer… Out of this World.
So, these blue jade stones, irregular pearls and silver plated anchor are my own way of going back to Cuba whenever I miss it. Are you going to Cuba on vacation? If so, these earrings are a must!!! Si vous partez en vacances à Cuba, n’oubliez pas de prendre cette paire des boucles d’oreilles avec vous. 🙂
Blue jade represents peace and serenity. If you wear it often, it will surely help you restore your inner equilibrium. It also encourages creativity, so I will definitely make sure to wear it while creating jewelry 🙂 Blue jade is said to help couples that argue all the time, as it resolves and even prevents, conflict situations. I knew a lawyer who always had a blue jade stone in her purse, as it is also believed that blue jade helps lawyers and other people win their litigations ! But lawyers are not the only ones for whom a blue jade might come in handy. It also helps doctors and nurses !
As to blue jade’s healing properties, it helps treat arthritis and asthma, and it is said to soothe cardiac rhythm. It is an excellent stone for meditation, as it calms the mind. If you are constantly under stress, this is the stone for you !
Pearls symbolize purity, integrity, and loyalty. If you want to get pregnant, this stone might help you, as it is said that it aids fertility. It also eases childbirth, so don’t forget to take it to labor ! Pearls are believed to help ear diseases, as well as digestive problems. These stones are also helpful for the kidneys, liver, urinary tract and heart. They can also apparently protect their owners from the evil eye. Also, if you want to break free of something that makes you angry or tired, pearls should give you enough courage to do so !
