We were away for a week, visiting beautiful Mont Tremblant and Montreal. And yes, we gave ourselves permission to unplug for a few days. 🙂

We’re back, and here’s what’s new on our website! The following pieces are now available for purchase in our shop: www.dharmawanderlust.com/store

Muladhara Tree (Two-Tone Cocobolo) Necklace

The first chakra, or ‘energy wheel’ in the body, is Muladhara, or Root. This chakra is associated with issues related to physical safety, stability, security and confidence. The symbol of the tree, with its roots reaching deep into the earth, reminds us to create a solid foundation and remain grounded in our identity while continuing to reach toward the sun as we learn and grow on our path.

 

Sand and Pebbles (one of a kind piece)

Imagine stepping onto a golden beach, feeling the silky sand’s sensations of warmth rippling through your toes and all the way up into your heart! The Sand and Pebbles necklace was inspired by the beautiful Mediterranean beaches of Israel. And of course, we recommend wearing it on a sunny day by the water.

You’ve heard it before, the expression that one must always remember to “Go with the flow” of life, to rise and fall with the tidal waves. We also know that the cycles of the Moon affect the tide of the ocean. And since our bodies are comprised mostly of water so, too, are we affected by everything that takes place in the Universe at any one time. That thought alone gives us plenty to ponder. This beautiful ‘High Tide’ necklace may put you in that contemplative, meditative mood, or you can simply wear it and enjoy the shimmery sparkle of the blue crusehd shell that represents the waves that roll in and out toward the shore in perfect rhythm. Sit back, observe the movement of those waves, and remember to marvel at the magnificence of the entire scene, the full experience that unravels before you when the water is calm, as well as when the pace of life begins to pick up! Magic is all around, always.

Here’s to the glorious sunshine! We hope the weather is beautiful, wherever you happen to be!

New Necklace on Our New Model

Meet our beautiful model, Sasha!

In the photo, Sasha is wearing the Fallen Leaves bracelet with pink shell inlay, as well as the two-tone Cocobolo Muladhara Tree necklace.

The necklace is one of our brand new pieces and we are very excited about this beautiful, naturally occurring combination of the Cocobolo wood.

The first chakra, or ‘energy wheel’ in the body, is Muladhara, or Root. This chakra is associated with issues related to physical safety, stability, security and confidence. The symbol of the tree, with its roots reaching deep into the earth, reminds us to create a solid foundation and remain grounded in our identity while continuing to reach toward the sun as we learn and grow on our path.

Cocobolo is a tropical hardwood from Central America and has a rich, shiny golden-brown hue when finished. The sapwood of Cocobolo is a creamy yellow creating a sharp and appealing boundary between the hardwood and sapwood. The natural combination of the two tones is simply stunning!

In Eastern philosophy, the lotus symbolizes purity and divine birth, or spontaneity. Out of muddy water emerges a magnificent blossom that is stunning in its perfection. So, too, can we tune into the perfect divine spirit within us, in any scenario, and allow our hearts to shine outward.

Amboyna burl comes from the Narra Tree. The burl itself ranges from striking red to golden yellow (see our other Amboyna burl pendants) and is considered one of the most beautiful wood burls in the world because of the striking colour and the amazing swirly patterns. A tidbit of interesting information is that Amboyna burl was once hoarded as treasure by Chinese Emperors and not allowed to be used by commoners.

The centre inlay is turquoise crushed shell. And it also is available with vibrant blue inlay:

Another Custom Handcrafted Piece with Glitzy Inlay

Another custom pendant!

This piece is relatively large at 3 1/4 x 1 1/2 inches and is made of Buckeye Burl.

We worked with the wood’s natural bark incursions and flaws, filling the natural void with three-colour (red, pink and yellow) inlay of crushed shell. The piece was then sanded with ever-increasing grits, oiled, waxed and buffed to a shine. Talk about a dramatic statement!
