Summer Solstice is the Longest Day of the Year!
Isn’t that something to celebrate? The sun will be showing her bright and shining face from about 5:30 am until 8:30 pm. Let’s make the most of the Summer Solstice by making some sun-inspired jewelry!
As you know, certain gemstone beads represent different things. Some stones go so far as harnessing the power of the sun! An obvious choice for us is Sunstone. Not only is it named after the sun, but it also does a beautiful job of reflecting light. Its pink-y and orange-y hues remind us of beautiful summer sunsets. You can also find some very vibrant sunstone beads that have tiny sparkles inside. This is the result of hematite mixing with the sunstone, thus creating an extra shiny affect.
Solar Quartz is another sun-centric gemstone. We have plenty of pendants made of Solar Quartz, and they would be a great focal point in any necklace. You could also get super creative and incorporate some wire wrapping techniques to create some rays around your Solar Quartz pendant.
With the endless ways you can celebrate the beginning of the Summer season, we hope you find a way that makes you feel extra bright. Stop by the shop to check out our Sunstone and Solar Quartz pendants and gemstone beads so you can make your Summer Solstice celebratory jewelry!
