Discover the healing power of jewelry. Inspiritu Jewelry is a book full of inspiration and techniques for creating rich and romantic-looking jewelry with a new dimension – that of using adornment to enrich the spirit and offer a sense of wellbeing. This book guides you through 25 jewelry “prescriptions.” Entries from an old “Prescriptions” book, belonging to a healer by the name of Milagros tie all of these projects together. The year is 1924 and you are introduced to healing methods Milagros used to treat the afflictions and heartaches of those in her small town. In addition to each project guiding you through a variety of jewelry-making techniques, each piece suggests a particular benefit to the wearer from learning patience to gaining protection on a journey and from offering forgiveness to remembering a loved one. You are also encouraged along the way to create jewelry pieces of your own for whatever purpose your desire.

Marie French began making healing and spiritual art when her daughter was born three months prematurely and each piece she made was a sort of prayer. She began making similar pieces for others and eventually began selling her work. Before long she was giving workshops in stores, schools and libraries as well as art council workshops. Her exhibit ‘Prayers for Peace’ was given a favorable review by the New York Times. Marie has been published in Somerset Studio, Belle Armoire, Haute Handbags, Altered Couture and she has also done styling work for Folio magazine.
