My dearest friend Katherine gave me the loveliest necklace from Peru 😭 if I’m remembering correctly it’s a chakana w the inside representing pachamama as well as the three lives ─ it’s also made of various stones & mother of pearl! 💜🙏🏼
Conch Pearl and Diamond Bracelet, Musy, circa 1880
The central motif millegrain-set with three conch pearls, circular- and single-cut diamonds, to a bracelet of foliate design similarly set with circular-, single-cut and rose diamonds, length approximately 165mm, signed Musy, one small diamond deficient, accompanied by two additional segments, fitted case.
I am doing this project. You make a bracelet with the colors that represent your struggles. The more beads of a certain color, the more you’ve struggled with that issue. You put a single white bead on it if you’re in recovery, and each year you are clean, you add another white bead and remove one of the others.
Colors and their meanings:
Silver –> BPD (Bipolar Disorder)
Gold –> Schizophrenia
Red –> Anorexia Nervousa (Anorexia)
Purple –> Bulimia Nervousa ( Bulimia)
Pink –> Eating Disorder not specified (EDNOS, Binge eating disorder, Ortherexia Nervousa [Otherexia] or a mix of eating disorders)
Blue –> Depression
Yellow–> Suicidal or suicide ideation
Orange/ Black –> Self-harm
Teal–> OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and other Anxiety/Panic disorders
I also added a Butterfly charm to mine, like for the Butterly Project, which is where you draw a butterfly where you normally self-harm and name it after someone you care for. If you self-harm before it fades away, you’ve killed it.
