Kyanite Bridges

About this design:

A friend has recently suffered a few minor strokes and is hesitant to do the typical testing to see what's going on. I'm interested in the healing qualities of gemstones and have read Kyanite can help rebuild neurological pathways in the brain after trauma, including stroke. So I made this for him to experiment with! I'm hoping it can help restore lost memory and normal functioning.


Kyanite: elongated flat ovals, rondelles and chips. Greek pewter sun spacers and lined spacers, Zola Element sun pendant.

    He will enjoy wearing this, and I hope it helps him to restore & heal. Your choice of the sun spacers & focal is excellent. Wishing success.

    That was very thoughtful of you. And a great design. A few months ago my granddaughter and grandson came to visit. I told my granddaughter to pick out any necklace she liked. And in passing asked my grandson if he wanted one. It was a resounding YES. He picked out one that looked great on him. It looked kind of like a surfer necklace. I was so glad I asked him. Sometimes we don’t think about the guys.

    Thanks for your nice comments everyone. I should have been a little more reserved in my stated hopes for this necklace! But I’m one who believes in miracles- Beady that’s great about your grandson! The surfer theme sounds perfect for a guy. It is tricky designing for guys- if this is too “fancy” for my friend he can always wear it underneath a shirt and still gain (what I hope to be) positive effects.

    This is a really nice design. I like the way you used silver spacers with the beautiful blue kyanite. I’ve never tried making anything for a man. I think you did a really good job.
