Eric's Family Tree - Three Generations
This SolCatcher represents Eric's family tree in 3 generations. The green piece of glass at the top represents his maternal grandmother, now deceased, with a peacestone jasper bead to remind us all that there is peace after we depart this blue globe of ours. Below that and directly connected to her is Eric's mother, represented in red glass and with red coral. She is surrounded by her four children, each represented by their birthstone colors (red with red coral, clear with snowstone, purple with amethyst, and yellow with citrine). Atop each child is a black obsidian bead to bring protection to this family, protection from anything that could harm them in the form of negative energies. Hanging from each child is a hematite chevron, reminding them to stay fully grounded in the present and enhacing that protection against negative energies. Hanging from the mother stone in the center is a zebra jasper stone, chosen to represent mother as zoo-keeper as with four children, that's what one often is! And also because jasper is another protective stone that also has calming properties to it as well. This multigeneraltional family tree SolCatcher is a gift from Eric to his mother for Christmas and I'm sure will be received with love and gratitude for the thoughtfullness with which it was given. Eric spent a great deal of time with me designing the SolCatcher and I hope his mother finds the beauty in this unique gift.
