Throughout history, jewelry has been worn in various cultures and religions and even played an important role in many. By simply putting on one piece of jewelry - or even a few, you can change up your entire look. In some cultures, jewelry has also been used for healing or to classify various status roles. Learn some of the benefits of wearing jewelry every day or for specific occasions.
Enhance Your Everyday Look with Jewelry
We all have our own unique style that shines in our everyday outfits. Buying jewelry to accent that look is one way to really make it pop. Finding the best jewelry for your look involves shopping around. Try searching for styles that match your style, such as goth, punk, boho, couture, and more.
You also may find the best jewelry by searching for unique, handcrafted artisan items. Oftentimes, these are made so that there is only one and no one else will have your look. Look into custom handmade jewelry as well.
Bring Out Your Unique Features
The shape of the right necklace can help outline your unique neckline and enhance your appearance. Earrings are often used to draw attention to the ears and face. Nose rings, eyebrow piercings, and other facial piercings are often used to accent specific areas of the face as well.
Show off or enhance your wrists or ankles with bracelets and anklets. You can do the same with your fingers and toes. Enhance your look in these areas by adding one or more rings.
Utilize the Healing Properties of Jewelry
Did you know that some jewelry can actually contain healing properties? There is beaded jewelry made from healing stones, jewelry with medicinal herbal satchels, blessed jewelry, and more. When buying jewelry specifically for healing, be sure to choose an artisan that has made the jewelry specifically with your intent in mind.
Intent-sive Nature is an example of one store that infuses each piece of jewelry with good intent, as well as the specific healing need. You can buy custom herbal satchels for dreams, healing jewelry made from stones and other items, and more. Duct Tape My Heart is another example of a store with healing in mind. Each piece is blessed by a natural healer.
Represent Your Culture or Beliefs
Many people wear jewelry to symbolize a specific religion, cause, or culture. For instance, some might consider buying jewelry with a pink ribbon to symbolize breast cancer awareness. Others wear crosses to represent Christianity-based religions.
Some may wear a pentacle to represent protection from evil or the Om symbol or peace sign to represent peace. When buying jewelry, it you may consider the meaning behind jewelry, if any. Specific stones may hold special meanings as well, beyond the healing properties mentioned above.
Choosing and Buying Jewelry
When you’re buying jewelry, choose pieces that accent your clothing, as well as your body. It’s important to have multiple pieces of jewelry because not every piece will go with every outfit or purpose. Finding the best jewelry is all about knowing exactly the look you wish to achieve.
When you see the right piece of jewelry for each specific need, you will know. Choose based on moods, styles, colors, and more. When buying jewelry, give yourself a good selection to look the best every day or best represent your cause, purpose, or belief in multiple ways.

Even if you don't usually wear jewelry, here's why I say everyone NEEDS healing jewelry. This can be true, regardless of whether you are a religious person or not. Gemstones and other tools used in healing jewelry are often not connected to a specific faith, but rather hold a special meaning for the wearer. This means they can be utilized by all faiths or even those who are atheist or hold no specific belief or label.
What Is Healing Jewelry?
Healing jewelry can be many things. What it is actually depends on the person, as well as the intent put into it. But, it generally includes gemstones, crystals, items from the Earth, items that are symbolic in some way, or all of the above.
Why Do I Need Healing Jewelry?
Well, this is something that has a different answer for everyone. Have you been having trouble sleeping? Have you been ill? Do you need good luck in obtaining a business position? Do you need more calmness in your life? More positivity? More love? More acceptance?
Do you need protection from negative energies or a specific person or entity? Everyone has something that they need in their life. Healing jewelry is a simple way to help that along just by wearing something beautiful and unique to you.
Many people feel naked without their healing or protective jewelry, as it serves a purpose nothing else can, since it is especially customized to each person, whether by the crafter or by consecration of the wearer upon receipt.
Some compare being without their healing jewelry to a Christian person being without their bible or prayer. It is simply a tool used to better connect with yourself and the natural world, much like a Christian would use prayer or the bible to connect with their God.
How Do I Know What My Healing Jewelry Means?
These items all have special meanings to the wearer, whether these meanings are specific or not. Over time, people from various cultures and belief systems have come to associate gemstones and other natural items with specific meanings, based on experience, as well as what ancestors, spirits, or nature might tell them to use it for. This is true of symbols, animals, and other items as well.
But, this is where it gets even trickier. Sometimes the wearer might have a special meaning behind something that no one else has. What if the wearer has a bond with butterflies because they remind them of a loved one who is passed on? What if the wearer has communicated with nature and felt their own meaning?
In this case, the traditional meanings may hold less weight than the wearer's personal bond and feeling with the items. I always tell people to go with your own feelings, intuitions, communications, and so on before what other people say because only you know what something is to you personally.
How Do I Know Which Meanings Or Sellers To Trust?
Intent also has a stronger force, so be careful who you get your healing items from. Be sure it is one who has the same intent as you do when they make the item. Rest assured, all of my items only have good will intended and I only put out the intent specified on their listings when wielding them.
But again, you have no way of knowing I'm telling the truth here. So, a little bit of good faith is needed. Also, I always recommend everyone do a good cleansing of any items they purchase, even from me. This is for safety and even just for your own peace of mind.
One thing to watch out for is that some people make things purely for the money and just rattle off a bunch of items just to get them out there. This isn't good when it comes to healing jewelry because it needs to have the proper combinations of things as well as the proper procedures and intent put into it.
Even though I do sell my healing jewelry, the bigger reason I do so is to help people. What doesn't go to worthy causes goes to my family, as well as back into the healing jewelry so that I can get more out there.

I'm Lyn Lomasi and among many ventures, I create healing jewelry in our family healing, hobby, & arts store, Intent-sive Nature. What qualifies myself & fellow artists and what's the meaning behind our healing jewelry?
Intuitive Healing of the Heart, Mind, Body, & Soul
Ever since I was a small child, I've always been a natural intuitive healer, as well as a creator of many artforms. Before I was too young to know what it was and what my calling would come to be, I always had an interest in helping and healing others through love and nature's energies. I always seem to know what people and animals need when they are sick, feeling down, or otherwise needing some sort of help or guidance. These people and animals are drawn to me and myself to them and I have saved or helped many.
This empathic nature inside of me has been true for as long as I can remember. It is also what led me to other artisans who share the gift of healing and empathy. Anyone who crafts for Intent-sive Nature must respect nature, as well as have intuitive healing gifts. They also must be a close family member or friend that shares the same natural vibrations. This way, the positive intent and healing put into the items is authentic and connected, no matter which of us crafts the item.
Becoming an Expert Intuitive Healer
Again, I am a natural intuitive healer. Throughout the years, I've learned to accept my intuitiveness and healing capabilities. Some have come to me through dreams or discussions with ancient ancestors. Others seem to have been there from the beginning. Accepting this eventually led to studying various religions and traditions of my ancestors and others. Those I have most been drawn to include many Native American traditions (which makes sense as I do have a great deal of native heritage), Ancient Kemet (Egypt) and other African traditions (which is also deep in my heritage), as well as wisdom from several other cultures and religions that acknowledge the natural vibrations in ourselves and natural objects, like crystals.
However, it is important to note that we do not infuse our items with any specific religion unless asked, nor do we insert any specific religion into our natural healing unless asked. We do not believe in a specific religion, but rather we are spiritual and in line with God, our ancestors, and the Earth. First and foremost, we are purely about healing the soul. Some may refer to our healing actions and abilities as Shamanic, since we rely on the forces of nature to wield our creations and nurture the mind, body, and soul.
This is where our parent company's name (Brand Shamans) came from. Any of us who are on the healing and artisan team have been referred to as a Shaman or similar type of healer by another, as well as had one or more spiritual journeys before we claimed the title for ourselves. Though not all of us were raised within a tribe, we all must also have some type of ancestral lineage that points to the original or indigenous peoples of America, Africa, or elsewhere. Some have more than others. But we all have these origins.
About Our Artisan Healing Jewelry
Our artisan healing jewelry is completely one of a kind. Each piece is made using energy from the artisan's heart and soul, as well as from nature. Some speak to ancestors or to God. If any specific religion is used, it will be stated. It's our mission to help people heal their mind, body, and soul while expressing themselves with the pieces created uniquely for them.
Myself and any other artisans feel the natural vibrations of each component (such as gemstones and crystals, which have their own energies and meanings) and that tells us what they want to become, based on several factors. When it's a custom piece, what that person wants and needs is also factored in.
About Gemstone Meanings & Healing Interpretations
We simply use what the Earth provides to us all. If you do the research, you will easily see that gemstone meanings and the healing interpretations of each stone tend to be the same throughout various cultures and belief systems throughout the world.
This is because they are a natural occurrence and the gemstones and crystals are not associated with any one religion or belief system. They are simply a tool that can be used as both the creator and wearer intend for them to be used. Intent is a very strong force and must be used wisely and accurately.
The Importance of Intent During Creation of Healing Jewelry
Intent is extremely important when choosing an artisan for your healing jewelry. If your jewelry is to heal, the artisan should be one that only works with positive intent and has only good intentions, YOUR greater purpose, and YOUR healing in mind during the creation of the project. It is possible to do this with general pieces, as well as custom pieces if the artisan puts the correct intent into the pieces.
However, be aware of those who will perform actions for others that may have ill will in mind. This is something you will never see our Brand Shamans think about. We only ever put out love, positive vibrations, and healing thoughts or intent when creating any protection or healing jewelry.
We do not create pieces that would wish harm upon anyone, no matter the price you wish to pay. If this is what you seek, look elsewhere. We are healers and will only practice good will actions.
The Importance of Cleansing, Intent, & Charging
Cleansing of the crystals and stones, as well as putting intent into them and charging them under a full moon are also important. The full moon gives these natural stones an extra burst of energy. All of our healing crystals and gemstones have been cleansed with good intent by our artisans, as well as charged under a full moon. We do this whenever we get a new shipment of crystals and stones, even if we need to wait to use them.
We also recharge all of the stones and crystals in stock each time there is a full moon and if possible, we charge the jewelry once it is made. The cleansing is something the wearer should do upon receiving them as well. This is to ensure that all energies are toward the wearer and any negative energies from others are wiped clean.
What Materials Do We Use?
Some of the materials we use include natural crystals and gemstones, glass and stone beads, nickel-free findings, recycled vintage jewelry parts, and many other materials. Being green is important to us for preserving the earth, so we like to use items from nature, as well as used or vintage items that can be repurposed or upcycled to help create less waste and more enjoyment.
