HonuHippie and Etsy
Well if you had not guessed it by now, I loooove Etsy 🙂 To see a review of another beautiful piece I found on Etsy, see here. The cool thing about Etsy is that you can find artists from all over the world and very cool Native American shops. To read about some of my favorite, click here. I love encouraging local artists where I live as well as on Etsy. Native artists from all over the place, or individuals who just like to put out Native inspired products. And what can I say about the HonuHippie shop! Well it is awesome. It is full of turquoise and beautiful stones. Gorgeous colorful necklaces with stones such as turquoise, agate (see more about it below), jasper, jade, peridot, etc. If you like stones, this is the place to be! And although some might say that the prices are a bit high, I think they are fair for the quality you get. I just wish the exchange rate would be better between USA and Canada 🙁
The Stone Arrowhead necklace
Well first off, the necklace was delivered very quickly (3 days) considering I am in Canada and it had to cross the border. That is some quick and inexpensive service! It was beautifully packaged and arrived without any cracks or chips.
And if we take a closer look at the necklace, we can really see the quality. Look at that Dragon vein agate stone on the right! The marble effect is just gorgeous and so is the earthy color. First off, the arrowhead shape is very significant within the Native culture. It is representative of the battles our ancestors had to fight and the strength it took.
And second, the center piece, the agate stone itself. According to the necklace description and my own research, the agate is represents a few different things. It is a protection stone and a source of strength. A good stone to carry around or to place in your medicine bag. And it also used to be included in the warriors’ breastplate to protect them from their enemies. A strong little stone! And most importantly, it is a balancing stone, a “yin yang” energy. It is also calming and healing (by placing it in water the sick person would drink). Finally the agate stone is an energy stone. Not in the sense that it gives you bottomless energy, but rather little needed bursts here and there, thus conserving energy. I do not know about you but it seems like one heck of a good stone!
And then you have the jasper and turquoise stones as well. First the jasper stone is known as a nurturing stone, that induces comfort and relaxation. And finally, the turquoise, a very old sacred stone used a lot by the Najavo people. It is said to bring good fortune and to cleanse you of negativity. It also has healing properties such as pain relieving and detoxifying effects. Wear it on your solar plexus for maximum effect.
So I do not know about you but it seems like one hell of a good necklace to wear around your neck! Talk about being protected with all those stones 🙂 And I know not everyone might believe in the power of stones and crystals and I can respect that. But even without the power of the stones, this necklace is a keeper. It is the perfect length and the perfect weight. It goes well with a variety of outfits and colors. I have worn it with bright color tops as well as more somber ones and it always looked good. The little silver feather on top of the agate is just the cherry on the sundae. Great details and lovely finish (including the clasp which is of great quality).
As you can then tell, I love this Native American Arrowhead necklace! I do get compliments on it and it just makes me feel protected wearing it. How about you? Do you believe in the power of stones? Do you like this necklace? Would you wear it? Comment below and I will answer you.
