Ritual Adornments | Ancestral Offerings
Black Stone Alchemy is a collection of handcrafted wire wrapped jewelry created and designed by me, Aina Jhyana. I predominantly work with copper wire due to its healing and energy balancing properties. All of the stones that I select are semi precious and form an energetic bond with the copper. My intention with Black Stone Alchemy is to make jewelry that is both beautiful and alchemical in nature.
Historically, wearing talismans or amulets has been a practice among shamans, healers, and empaths to aid them on their journey. With this in mind, I encourage the practice of self protection and self amplification, using crystals as a reminder of ones internal power. The art and interpretation of transmutation is prevalent in my work. Copper is a powerful conduit for crystal alchemy. Copper is used to reduce inflammation, help oxygenate the blood, and enhance the channel between the crystals and your body.
Through the process of weaving the copper and fitting the stones, the energies mingle and transform into an intentional tool. Weaving tells the story of the piece, and each adornment is made with the energy of love and wisdom. I recommend programming your healing tools with your intentions to create an intimate and unique bond. To charge or cleanse your stones, give them a sun/moon bath (depending on the stone) or cleanse them with the smoke of your favorite ancestral herbs.
