Howlite gemstone is believed to be a calming stone that can help relieve stress of all kinds and negativity. Often mistaken for turquoise, and often intentionally misrepresented as turquoise, howlite occurs naturally as a white or gray stone with dark stripes. However, because of its porous minerals, it absorbs dyes easily.
This cuff was bead embroidered with 5 round Howlite cabochons and complemented with bronze, gold and red seed beads. The inspiration for the colourway comes mainly from the cabochon itself; the faint brown lines on it sets the tone of the palette. The cuff edging was finished with a dark red Picasso seed beads as a highlight. This time round, I have used a pre-formed brass cuff which gives it a sturdier shape to the cuff.
So, if you are feeling upset, wear it and the howlites will help you keep those emotions at bay.
