I’ve chosen Rose Quartz and Hematite for this project as they are two of my favourite stones and I think they go well together especially with silver. You can choose any stones you like or already have or even use another material such as glass or crystal. The stones can all be the same or in complementing colours and types and you could use sterling or gold plated findings if you prefer.
1 inch head pin
One gemstone pendant approx 3 cm long
One 8 or 10mm gemstone bead
Three 4mm gemstone oval beads
Four 4mm silver plated round beads
Two silver plated side opening calottes (necklace ends)
Three 4mm silver plated jump rings
16cm of 2mm silver plated ball chain
2 inch piece of 0.8mm silver plated wire
Make a small loop in one end of the 0.8mm wire
Thread on beads in this order – 4mm silver bead, gemstone oval and continue until you have three gemstone ovals and four silver beads on the wire.
Trim any excess wire and make a small loop in the wire end yo created the beaded section for your pendulum.
Attach a calotte to one end of the ball chain. Use a jump ring to attach the beaded section to the calotte.
Use a second jump ring to attach the gemstone pendant to the other end of the beaded section.
Attach the second calotte to the other end of the ball chain. Thread the gemstone bead on to the 1 inch head pin. Trim of any excess wire and make a loop in the end to create a charm.
Use the remaining jump ring to attach the charm to the calotte.
Throughout history people have used pendulums to help them including to locate water, oil and minerals, detect illness and allergies and in divination.
A pendulum works in a similar way to a radio antenna picking up information from unseen radio waves. A pendulum receives it’s information from the vibrations and energy given off my people, places and thoughts. Albert Einstein believed pendulums used electromagnetism to work and other scientific research has indicated he could ell of been correct.
Even though no one fully understands how and why pendulums work we can still use them to benefit ourselves and the people around us.
Some uses for pendulums include:
Locating – water, gold, oil, minerals, lost items, missing persons, underground pipes and illness and other problems within the human body.
Testing – for allergies, freshness of food and water and the presence of chemicals or bacteria.
Determining – the health of people, plants or animals, negative and positive energies in a place or the compatibility between people.
In choosing – investments, career, relationships and timing of events.
