SARU (monkey in Japanese) + STAR (my grandma Stella)= SARUSTAR, a personal amalgamation of what my business/ life/ the act of making things is to me. It is the playful and sometimes haphazard way things come together to make life beautiful.
Handmade jewelry showcasing the unsung gems of the world.
It's said that moonstone is a healing stone, promoting inner-growth and strength by enhancing intuition and calming emotional instability and stress.
As much as I've always love rocks and crystals, I've never really gotten into their spiritual meanings. However, this description of moonstone really resonated with me, and it seems fitting that a hollow-form moonstone pendant is what I've come up with today. Surprise, surprise, it's made from scraps of previous jewelry experiments gone wrong and a fractured and slightly chipped moonstone cabochon from that packet of de-stash gems I bought a while ago.
