Mustika Pearl Pendants and Chokers
by Zahir Karbani
Mustika pearls come in many sizes, shapes, colors and energies. They are lovely on their own, but also may be used to make stunning pendants or chokers to be worn about the neck in the area of the throat chakra or, if on a longer chain, in the area of the heart chakra. Some perfect mustika for pendant making purposes are the small to medium specimens such as: spider pearls, Tarantula pearls, water pearls, Owl pearls, medium Dragon pearls, Seal pearls, Snake pearls, Golden Carp pearls, Pomegranate, small Honey pearls, small Bee Hive pearls, small Sea Pearls and small Dew pearls. While many of these mentioned pearls also come in large sizes you may be fortunate enough to find smaller ones for purchase which may then be made into exquisite chokers and/or pendants. Each pearl has its own properties and abilities, such as bringing good luck, increasing personal charisma and charm, influencing wealth or good fortune and/or offering personal protection from negative outside forces. The best way to select which pearl will bring you the most benefit is to look over the available selection and choose the one that draws you the most. The quantity of the most sought after types of mustika pearls vary greatly from day to day as they are acquired with difficulty and sold frequently and quickly. Once you have obtained the perfect pearl for you there are two options for making it into the perfect mustika pearl pendant or choker.
The easiest and most often used method is to find a good jewelry maker to set the mustika pearl for you. These professionals can fit the stone into a setting that will enhance its beauty and inner glow and at any length you desire. Crystal jewelry makers are an excellent option as they are familiar with the special properties that these types of items possess and can set them so that they work to their best benefit. Another option is to create a choker or pendant yourself using a purchased setting or by making one from materials obtained from jewelry making stores or Web sites. Jewelry making supply companies offer a wide array of wires, settings, mountings, silk rope and ribbon, leather strings, tools and complementary beads for sale with which you can create your very own mustika pearl choker or pendant. Making them is great fun and a creative endeavor that you will enjoy and be proud to show to friends and family.
Whether you decide to have your perfect mustika pearl set for you by a jewelry or jewelry maker or you venture to make your own, you will obtain a great deal of pleasure and a variety of other benefits from this unique and beneficial piece of jewelry. Mustika pearls have been in existence for thousands of years and have been used by many in the New Age field for various applications, however, their uses for jewelry is a relatively new art. The demand for a means of displaying mustika pearls in the same way that crystals, gems and stones have been throughout the ages has inspired owners to apply the pearls in this manner. Mustika pearls have opened an entirely innovative New Age aspect to the art of wearable “energy” and personal enhancement once only reserved for crystals, rocks and gems. They are a wonderful option for creating and owning something that is truly all your own as each mustika pearl is as individual and interesting as its owner.
