This piece is made with picture jasper and lapis lazuli. Picture jasper is a stone of earth energies, storytelling, travel, sacred sites and the song of the land. It helps us to connect with the Earth, it’s history and stories. It encourages us to learn about the spirits of place, the plants and animals, and the human stories. Lapis lazuli is a stone of Awen, inspiration, insight and wisdom. It helps us to find our artistic expression through the voice in storytelling, song, poetry and deep conversations. It also helps us to listen deeply, knowing when to be silent and contemplative as well as when to speak, finding the song of the earth that rests not only in the land itself, but in all of it’s stories and our own hearts.
