Product Description

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.

About the Author

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.

Create beautiful jewelry for better wellbeing

Discover the power of creating unique pieces of adornment with the intention to heal. Inside Inspiritu you will turn pages borrowed from a dusty “prescriptions book” revealing restorative secrets of a legendary curandera – a woman healer – and will become inspired to create your own unique jewelry pieces to share with others. From creating your own clasps and jump rings to incorporating keepsakes with new elements there is much to discover here. You’ll also:

  • · Master a variety of metalworking jewelry techniques such as forging, stamping, sawing, wirework and more.
  • · Learn the qualities instilled in specific colors and gemstones to truly target the needs of those you create jewelry for.
  • · See how easy it is to turn new objects into ones that appear aged and where to go to find vintage treasures to use in your works.
  • · Combine vintage elements with new materials to create striking pieces with both form and function.
  • · Pamper yourself or others using the plentiful suggestions for restorative teas and other healing treatments.

Whether you enjoy making earrings, bracelets or necklaces, start creating beautiful jewelry for the betterment of your mind, body and soul.

Look. Make. Meet.
