The prototype for my fused glass chakra rune was actually completed in late 2012 – this became known as my Sacral chakra rune and I always felt empowered wearing it!!

But it was only March this year that I created a complete fused glass set for the 7-chakra system … the idea came to me after studying chakras with colour therapy in readiness for a chakra cleansing ritual, so I needed a few more runes for myself!

Below, you can see I prepared a Root chakra rune for a guy friend whose birthday is coming up shortly. Its wired on 2mm width rubber cord with sterling silver findings (the fastener, jump rings and cord ends). The length is 18.5″ (47cm) for that sexy beach style that looks good on guys πŸ˜‰

Rubber is a very interesting material for pendants. Over time the rubber changes texture a little as you wear it; it becomes less matte, developing a nice sheen, and it re-shapes and stiffens to fit more firmly… I only noticed this recently when I compared some old pendants with some new pendants I’ve made using the same reel of rubber cord πŸ™‚

And below is a Solar Plexus chakra rune threaded onto 2mm sterling silver ball-chain. The ball-chains are easily un/fastened so runes or beads can be interchanged.

The idea here is that you carry the rune next to your body, either in your pocket or in your hand, etc. and feel the power as the glass warms up! It is also very therapeutic to feel the smooth glass in your fingers too πŸ™‚

I have gifted several of these ‘colour therapy’ runes to friends and family now, and so far all of them have said they have felt the magic when wearing or holding them πŸ™‚

Combine that with the love I pour into making them, these are mighty powerful pieces of art! πŸ˜‰

Perhaps I’ll create the next set based on the 12-chakra system, the Egyptian 13-chakra system or the 22-chakra system… lots of kiln fusing, whatever!

All these glass pieces were fused in a kiln using Bullseye glass.
