COLOR THERAPY JEWELRY GIVEAWAY - 5 Prizes for 5 Lucky Winners ! Will you be one of them ?

This is my biggest giveaway ever, and deciding what to craft was not an easy thing – too many ideas and not enough time to make them all come true, even if I’m planning it for a long time. But here we are, ready to celebrate all our friends, followers and customers. I’m saying we/our because this is a joint giveaway between Letamariedesigns and Galleria MonArt. We just cannot have enough prizes for everybody, right ? So I’ve asked Leta to join me.
This time we’ll not going to have a First, Second or Third prize…. This is a celebration of colors, so each and every prize will be called by color, and we will have 5 winners. Right ! 5 ( like in five ) !
Colors play an important role in our lives, starting with the hard morning decision of what to wear today, and ending with the colors of the drapes in your bedroom or the color of your toothbrush. So beside the description of each prize I will also try to provide you with a short meaning and benefits of each color.

RED Prize – Enamel Cameo necklace and bracelet set

Lot of Love in this set. I crafted both the necklace and the bracelet with red faux leather cord and silver plated findings. I also put together this beautiful floral enamel cameo in the setting, and I attached a matching floral bail and a shiny red crystal and silver foil bead accent. The accent beads on the cord are stainless steel. The bracelet is a medium size, fitting a small to medium wrist. If you win this prize and have a larger wrist, please email me so I can attach an extension chain.

RED : Red is the lowest of the seven colors in the visible spectrum and is known as a "warm" color. It is stimulating and energizing therefore it is helpful for tiredness and lethargy, to stimulate low blood pressure, to boost sluggish circulation. Red should not be used on anyone, with hypertension/high blood pressure since this color increases blood flow. Red, in its most positive sense, is the color for courage, strength and pioneering spirit. However, in the most negative aspect, it is the color of anger, violence and brutality and, interestingly, before world war two it was noted that a lot of red was being worn. Red is energizing and excites the emotions, and can stimulate the appetite. It can be used in any activity area but red needs careful choice of tone and depth and the space in which it is to be used as it can make a space look smaller and can be claustrophobic or oppressive. However, used well, red and its variations can make a space feel warm and cozy.

GREEN Prize – Bracelet and Earrings Set

As some of you may know by now, green is my color. It relaxes me, is giving me positive energies every time I wear it, and … is matching my eyes  So here is the green prize, a nice and refreshing set of bracelet and matching earrings, great to wear anytime and anywhere. I also call it the Lucky one. Not only because green is associated with money, but also because the bracelet is featuring a large metallic four leaves clover. I crafted this set with green faux leather cord, shiny green crystal, glass pearls and peridot Swarovski crystals. Antique silver beads and connectors finish the earrings. The bracelet is a medium size, fitting a small to medium wrist. Again, if you win this prize and have a larger wrist, please email me so I can attach an extension chain.
Green : Green is a balancing color, in the middle of the visible spectrum. The higher three colors are known as the "cool" colors and are calming in effect, the lower three are known as the "warm" colors and have a stimulating effect. Green is the balance between these two. When a therapist comes to the end of a color therapy treatment, he/she will use green as a balancing color at the end of a treatment. Green is the color of balance and harmony and can, therefore, be helpful in times of stress.

LAVENDER Prize – Alexandrite Bracelet and Sterling Silver Earrings Set by Letamariedesigns

Warm and shiny, this beautiful set offered by Leatamriedesigns features a stretch bracelet and SS dangle earrings. The Stretch Bracelet is made from 6mm Fire Polish AB Czech Glass Beads in the color Alexandrite. The Earrings are made with same beads as well as 4mm AB Swarovski Crystals, and Silver Plated Daisy Spacers. The Earrings sit on a Sterling Silver Head Pin and Sterling Silver Ear Wires.
Lavender : While purple connects directly to our psychic self, this softer shade assists with spiritual healing, Lavender is a soothing and calming colour – apparently used to burn off karma from other/previous lifetimes.
 It can be used for treating skin conditions and inflammations and the immune system. Lavender is a soothing color on all levels, physical mental and emotional levels. It can be used to soothe conditions of anger and feelings of neglect. It can be used to awaken compassion, love, and purity. Also it can be used in meditation to discern greater truths. It is comforting to the emotional energies of the individual.

PURPLE Prize – Celestial Amethyst Silver Bookmark and Cell Phone Charm Set

I know that many of you just love purple, so I crafted this absolutely gorgeous accessories set with natural Amethyst nuggets, purple Evil Eye acrylic beads, natural purple Shell tiny coins, crackle glass beads, 5 mm lavender roundels crystals, lavender polymer clay flower, aluminum purple flowers and metallic antique silver beads. The celestial charms are metallic too.
Purple : Purple is royalty. A mysterious color, purple is associated with both nobility and spirituality. The opposites of hot red and cool blue combine to create this intriguing color. Purple has a special, almost sacred place in nature: lavender, orchid, lilac, and violet flowers are often delicate and considered precious. Because purple is derived from the mixing of a strong warm and strong cool color it has both warm and cool properties. A purple room can boost a child's imagination or an artist's creativity.

BLUE ( pastel ) Prize – My Kitty little girls Necklace and earrings set
I always wished for a girl, but God decided that I would be a better fit as a mother of boys, LOL ! But this doesn’t mean that I cannot create something for your little princess, right ? This is a lovely set that brought me a great joy when crafting it. If you win this prize but don’t have a girl, then you can always use it as a gift. The necklace is made with wood painted Kitty pendant and beads on a baby blue sheer. Same painted wood kitties on the earrings. All findings are silver plated.
Blue : Blue relates to self expression. Speech, communication, the ability to communicate our needs and requirements. Spirit of truth and purpose. Calming, relaxing and healing. Also the color of communication. Blue represents the spiritual aspects of our life. The sky and the ocean give us the feeling that life is an endless process. Blue is the greatest healing power in the world. Blue is the color of purity and those who enjoy it, carry with them a sense of calmness, peace, serenity, and beauty. The Throat Chakra - is energized by blue. Through the throat, we express ourselves, connecting with sound and voice, carrying power with our words. This energy is peaceful and soothing. Calming tired nerves, alleviating agony and pain we suffer from physical stress. It has a pacifying effect over our nervous system and brings us great relaxation. Cool, soothing and sedative, blue alleviates pain, reducing bleeding and heals burns. It is beneficial in the treatment of dysentery, colic, asthma, respiratory disorders, high blood pressure and skin aberrations.
