I've been doing a guided meditation on prosperity for over a month, and one of the most interesting aspects of this exercise is that it asks you to look at the concept in a more holistic way. Most of us upon hearing the word "prosperity" may leap to ideas of financial abundance and wealth; however, in this new model I am learning how prosperity also means physical and emotional well-being, having a good relationship with yourself and others, and enjoying peace of mind.

At one point during the guided meditation, I'm asked to picture what I would look if I believed I was prosperous. During this part of the exercise I started mentally designing a necklace that I was wearing around my neck.

The necklace got to feel so utterly irresistible that I had to sit down and try to recreate it. I never pictured the exact charms and gems, but rather the necklace was always more like a suggestion. Like I was seeing it from far away and everything was fuzzy as if I was squinting.

So all I had was a feeling of these tiny charms and gems dotting a long chain that was gold. I spread out my Hint Jewelry charms and gems and started mixing and matching things together from a completely intuitive level.
I have no idea why I picked the tree of life, zen leaf, and body spirit soul charms they just seemed to make sense.

The gems I chose where somewhat random though I knew purple and red played a large part in the design.
The necklace is 30 inches in length and is so long that I decided not to include a clasp. This way the necklace is a continuous circle that I slip over my head. I can also wear it in a variety of ways so there is no real front or back.

I've been wearing this Prosperity necklace a lot lately. It just feels so beautiful and comforting all at the same time. It's rare that I make something that feels like every part of my essence is in the piece. In fact, I was thinking that it almost feels like a strand of my DNA coding. Everything that was in the pattern or plan of my makeup is laid out in one piece.
Have you ever made something that feels this way? Have you ever imagined your DNA coding as a pattern in your art? What does it look like? Or what would it look like?
