Silver Lining has created a bracelet that is given to new members. It is worn to be a reminder that there are beautiful friendships gained through the pain and hardship of cancer and its treatment’s effects. We are GRATEFUL to have each other.
There is meaning behind each piece that has been incorporated into the design.
Sodalite is a blue cloudy mineral gemstone, deposits of which have been found in Montana. It is said that its properties are deeply connected to the heart, imparting a calming effect, making it easier to attain inner peace. It’s properties also minimize negativity, facilitating a more positive view of any situation. It reminds the wearer to stay positive and strive for inner peace.
Lapis Lazuli is a solid blue mineral gemstone. It is thought, by healers, to have a strong connection to guardian angles. Its properties can soothe the mind. It is a stone of friendship. Lapis reminds the wearer that there are supportive forces at work to provide encouragement and care when the clouds start to rumble.
From a sterling silver bead dangles a silver charm in the shape of a cloud representing the silver lining of our invaluable friendships that have been gained through the pain and hardship.
