All pieces at The Mountain Druidess come gift wrapped. ABOUT THE ITEM: -These beautiful one of a kind Copper Ear Weights feature two large quartz points that dangle on a hand hammered copper 12g hook. These ear weights require a minimum 12g. They are relatively heavy. These earweights were handmade using a pure copper bail and then were electroformed to create a bezel for the crystals. The weights were then coated with a patina and special sealing wax. Electroforming is an organic process that creates a coat of copper on a conductive surface using an electric current. The process can last anywhere between 24 to 36 hours. Because of it's organic nature, each piece created in this process is unique and has beautiful imperfections and textures. Along with the protection from the wax, you should not shower or submerge the jewelry in water. Because your jewelry is made of copper, it will age over time but can become shiny again with a nice polish. Do note that the dark patina will eventually wear off to reveal the beautiful tones of natural copper. If you wish for it to be dark again contact me and I will do it for free (just pay for shipping). :) All of the pieces offered at The Mountain Druidess are made with intention and feature fully charged crystals. To recharge your jewelry use the sun or moon's rays because they are very energizing, as well as energetically clearing. You can use this method to both clear and charge your crystals at the same time. Find a safe place and leave your crystal for 24 hours or more (up to a week) in sunlight and/or moonlight. CRYSTAL MEANINGS: -Quartz is a stone of clarity which dispels negativity and clears away negative energy. It can be used to purify and clarify on the spiritual, mental, and physical planes. It is powerfully protective because of these properties. Quartz enhances spiritual growth, spirituality and wisdom. Because it clarifies thought processes and emotions, it can increase inspiration and creativity. It can also help particularly with concentration, studying, and retaining what one learns. Quartz is also a stone of harmony because it balances energies, and is even helpful in romantic relationships. Quartz amplifies the power of other stones as well.
