Radiate Carnelian Gold Necklace - A Beautiful Story
This necklace is made of a gold plated brass rosary chain and carnelian gemstone beads with a medium pendant with an image of starfish. Carnelian is courageous and creative. Don’t know where to start? Carnelian goes with you and shows the way. The starfish is formed by 5 points, just like we form the earth together. But the points also have a symbolic meaning. The point directed upwards, stands for the mind. The other four points represent the elements water, earth, air and fire. The starfish reminds you that, one way or the other, we are all connected.

A Beautiful Story was founded by Cathelijne Lania from the Netherlands in 2006. When she heard that a silver factory was closing down in her beloved Nepal (owned by a friend she had met whilst volunteering in Kathmandu) and inspired by her love of the country, Cathelijne quit her job working for a big multi-national and set up a collaboration with the silver factory "artisan workshops". Cathelijne worked with her friend, Nimdiki Sherpa, to set up a jewellery factory "Beads for Life" - an enterprise to empower Nepalese women . Fifty artisons from Beads for Life make the jewellery for A beautiful Story giving these talented jewellery makers the chance to be independent and to support their families. Today the company also works with a small number of producers in developing countries and is establishing new connections in Peru, Bolivia and Bangladesh.
