Promise rings. Friendship bracelets. You like your jewelry to mean something.
Local gal Asha Patel’s necklaces will satisfy your sentimental heart.
In addition to just-plain-pretty labradorite hunks strung from leather cord, her new East-meets-West pendant collection, Threads, features nine aura-centered emblems laced on corresponding colored silks.
Among them: Om (the all-connecting sound of the universe), Hamsa (to offer protection, happiness, peace, and prosperity), and Clover (the universal good fortune symbol).
Patel’s mantra is to take a step back and just breathe.
And everybody could use a little of that.
