Apatite Spirit Bead Necklaces
These necklaces were designed in collaboration with Ziabird owner, Lynn Manock and local jewelry artist Debra Pyeatt.
Description: Like cooling waters, Apatite will enhance any outfit that you pair with it. The word “Apatite” is derived from a Greek word that means ‘to deceive’ because this stone is often mistaken for other gemstones. This necklace made up of tiny faceted rondelle beads also contain a mystery - a spirit bead.
What is a spirit bead? Quite simply, it is that one bead in a beaded piece that is out of place. It could be the wrong bead that was used. Or it could be a bead that is in the wrong spot - maybe breaks up a pattern. For centuries spirit beads have been used in almost all cultures. It is paying homage to the Divine Being, to God. Only God is perfect and to include a spirit beads is to acknowledge that we as humans are imperfect and that only God is perfect. In showing your humility, perhaps you will find a blessing.
