The Philosophy Of Light

The Philosophy Of Light is my first alchemical jewellery collection, an exploration of the character of our crystal kin and their relationship with the nature of light – its presence and its absence, the way it travels within crystal bodies, how it reflects and shifts according to perspective, what it conveys to the observer – the message its stellar code embeds in the crystal’s sphere. It is my humble offering to the Angelic Realms.

Please note that the Story Shop artwork is currently unavailable outside of serbia as THE website is being updated for online sales.


All the sixteen bracelets in THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIGHT represent a work of alchemical art, in accordance with my own beliefs, in deep gratitude and awe of the beauty of our crystal kin. The making of all bracelets is aligned with a Chaldean planetary day and hour, in sync with the specific stone, and this will be observed for every piece made. My intention is to balance the root storylines of the stones by acknowledging their myths, clear personal space for the wearer by giving every piece my full attention, and synchronise the astrological clock with the alchemical lore of the gems. The pieces themselves are not talismanic materia, which is a high magical art onto itself. In terms of shipment, bracelets will arrive in a pouch, with their crystal lore and storyline in print. If it is a gift, I offer services of poetic dedication. The pieces all have different sizes due to the patterns of beading. It is possible to make them custom fit, too – please send me an email to discuss the options. Any feedback on the piece would be lovely, and very much appreciated.

DANCING STAR is the collection’s crown piece, and was inspired by my favourite philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, and the quote from his Thus Spoke Zarathustra (1883–1885) – “one must still have chaos in oneself to give birth to a dancing star.”

Rainbow Riders

Flourite with silver and gold stainless steel, beaded according to Chaldean planetary hours, on the day of the Moon, and the hour of Jupiter, designed during the waning gibbous Moon in the first decan of Pisces, in exact conjunction with a retrograde Jupiter in its domicile. Flourite, in crystal lore, is the stone of strength and clarity, protective in adverse environments, absorbing debris. According to Judy Hall it dissolves illusions, organising and stabilising our energy, facilitating information processing, with myriad medicinal uses, mostly related to muscular and skeletal systems. It’s a bountiful heart chakra stone, but it cleanses and balances them all, like the great muscle, itself.

Disclaimer – The storytelling bracelets are created for your inspiration, as assistance in tuning into the mysteries of our crystal kin. Their lore is important to understand symbolically, as their archetypal patterning brings about a greater awareness of life, of what needs transforming, balancing and healing. Their colours, origins and textures bring us joy, which in itself is a powerful life potion – their magic comes from their character, as does ours. Please keep in mind that although astrological lore is observed by the author when crafting these artworks, they are pieces of art created in accordance to the artist’s beliefs, and should be purchased as such – not as magic or as medicine, because this they are not intended to be.
