The ocean has an amazing effect on our senses and, in turn our mental and physical wellbeing…
Sight…the colour blue has been found by a vast number of people to be associated with feelings of calm and peace. In fact, staring at the ocean actually changes our brain waves’ frequency and puts us into a mild meditative state.
Sound…the sound of the waves, coupled with the scenery, activate our parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for slowing us down and allowing us to relax and feel more at peace.
Touch… the physical sensation of putting your feet in warm sand can bring on feelings of relaxation.
Scent…contributing to this soothed state is the scent of the ocean, which may have something to do with the negative ions in the air that you’re breathing in.
A little more on those negative ions…
The human body’s magnetic field is made up of both positive and negative ions. Our over-exposure to positive ions (caused by electrical equipment such as computers and mobile phones) can affect our magnetic field and drain energy, making us feel depleted. However, water in motion produces abundant negative ions, bringing vitality to our bodies.
Once these negative ions reach our bloodstream, it is believed they produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of serotonin, a chemical that can help alleviate stress and boost our energy. This is why being near the sea makes us feel so good.
Introducing… Treasures of the Sea
This collection is inspired by the joy we feel at being by the sea and the magic of discovery we experienced on those childhood visits to the beach. Celebrating the beauty of this shifting landscape, these tactile pieces are crafted with natural finds that invoke calm moments of being by the water.
Treasures of the Sea includes necklaces and stackable bracelets created with sea glass collected from beaches in St Ives, Cornwall and Folkestone, Kent. Complemented with my staple natural gemstones and wave stamped charms the pieces can be mixed, matched and stacked and every piece is as unique as you are.
Ocean charms necklace
This delicate necklace comes with two interchangeable charms; one unique piece of seaglass and a wave stamp (some with a free seashell charm), threaded onto a diamond cut curb chain (available in two lengths). Wear one charm, two or even add more, depending on your mood.
This bracelet features unique seaglass/shell and wave stamp charms with 8mm a range of gemstone options. Threaded on a strong stretch elastic and available in three sizes.
Sea dreams bracelet
This delicate bracelet is designed to stack beautifully with the beach bracelet (or wear alone if you want something simple). Made from either 4mm aqua agate or 5mm blue glass rondelle beads.
