  17. yoga bracelets


    B.K.S. Lyengar says, 

    Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame.

    At LouMae Designs HQ, we love creating these gorgeous Yoga Bracelet, with the peaceful back drop of Kew Gardens. These double stranded bracelet, using semi precious gemstones, give us a sense of peace and clarity in a world often tinged with stress.

    The stones used are thought to have healing and spiritual energy.
    Aragonite is often used when preparing for a meditation session and it is thought to raise vibrations to a high spiritual level. Believed to enhance patience and acceptance under stressful conditions, help clear and focus the mind, raise energy levels, reduce anger. Monks sometimes hold aragonite before embarking on meditation.

    Other stones used include: Amazonite - alleviate stress and exhaustion, brings clarity of thought, helps find a place of centred harmony
    Aventurine – radiating peace and calming energy, healing, good luck, promote positive attitude confidence
    Rose Quartz – love stone, soothing calming, increase self love

    So grab a bracelet and start downward facing dog posing!

  18. llsb multi opal agate
    We had a rather busy night at the Great Walstead Shopping Event last Thursday. There were many small businesses displaying their many fine products, and we certainly had our admirers. We sold out of the stunning Odette Opal Agate bracelet a
    nd Clara Amazonite bracelet. Don't worry, though, we have been busy making more of our coveted pieces.

    We also had a personal consultation with Susie, a Children's Lifestyle Professional in Ealing, for a present for a very good friend. After perusing the LouMae Loves Statement Bracelet range of Naomi - Faceted Black Agate,
    Ola - Opal Agate, and Gigi - Faceted Grey Agate, she took all three! When every bracelet is gorgeous, it is difficult to decide, but Susie knew whichever one she chose, it would be the right decision.

  19. erose statement amethyst


    LouMae Designs are loving OPI nail polish at the moment and we think OPI’s Pamplona Purple is a perfect match with our Amethyst Erose Statement Drop Necklace. LouMae Design’s Team are sporting this nail colour all week. Although, with 007 Bond's new film Skyfall out this month, we are also liking OPI's perfectly named, new nail colour, Skyfall
    Beautiful nails and beautiful jewellery are a beautiful combination.

    London City Mum (LCM)

    Repairing a much loved piece of jewellery, languishing, broken in the jewellery box, can make you feel like you have brand new pieces. Contact us to see if we can help.

    After having seen LouMae Designs at The Fair On The Green, Fulham, a new client was so taken with the Erose Drop Smokey Quartz Necklace she bought one, "I absolutely love the necklace!"
    Then she chose a couple of matching bracelets, too. After a further consultation, she requested a commission piece, a double strand smokey quartz necklace, using light and dark stones.

    We created this stunning, faceted, smokey quartz necklace and each strand sat perfectly on top of each other.
