Butterfly Dreams is a brand new design! Butterfly Dreams is inspired by my home in the Rockies where the Mountains are filled with rugged wildflowers and hundreds of species of butterflies. I have captured four different species; the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, Variegated Fritillary, Mourning Cloak, and American Lady. Each one is fluttering across a dreamy cloud-filled sky. Butterflies are deep and powerful symbols for life. Butterflies are not only beautiful, but also represent a metaphor for rebirth, transformation, change, hope, and life. The brilliant but short life of the butterfly closely mirrors our own process of spiritual transformation and serves to remind us that life is brief. Some believe that butterflies are the tiny messengers of angels. Others believe butterflies are winged messengers from the spirit world to send gentle signals. I personally like to think of them as fairies… and that they secretly might be up to some magical mischief!
The Mini Queen is a style designed with size in mind! I get tons of requests for a miniature version of my signature crystal rollerballs so this style was specifically made for you. All the beauty of a crystal packed into the smallest rollerball possible, Mini Queens are full of intricate detail. Just in case you’re wondering, this new style is fully interchangeable with any Bead and Bones bottles should you wish to upsize just a little!
The Crystal featured on this Rollerball Necklace is Amethyst. Crystals and stones found within my collections are gem-quality specimens curated by artisanal lapidaries and family operated mines. These crystals were curated especially for my rollerball necklaces.
Amethyst is the most valuable crystal in the quartz family. Amethyst gets its purple color from iron oxide in the quartz, and it has more iron than any other type of quartz. After the stone crystalizes, radioactive gamma rays from deep inside the earth irradiate the iron, turning it purple. (These formations happened millions of years ago, Amethyst is not radioactive). Amethyst was once called the “Gem of Fire” in ancient times because it was thought to contain the fire energy from the belly of the earth, an energy that is creative, passionate, and spiritual. In a way, the ancients were correct! In the metaphysical world, Amethyst connects with the Divine. It is thought the deeper the hue, the higher the iron content, the stronger the connection. This connection is what makes Amethyst the ideal stone for creatives, often even being called the Artist’s Stone.
Rollerball Necklaces are customizable in length and coupled with a sterling silver chain. Chains feature a .925 diamond cut. Full Metal Rollerball Necklaces come with a 2ml bottle wrapped in solid silver. Necklaces arrive with a roller since oils are the most common use, but are entirely optional and can be sealed with anything of your choosing! Necklaces are further customizable by removing the roller from the bottle and many customers have opted to use their necklaces for keepsakes, specimens, or memorials. Bottles are shown with an inert carrier, but essential oils are not included. Rollerball necklaces are refillable and coupled with a refill/care kit. If you would like to purchase more bottles in other sizes or colors find glass bottles here or consider adding extra crystal energy with a gemstone roller bottle here. Full Metal pieces are interchangeable with any bottle or necklace from Bead and Bones.
