People make jewelry out of the strangest things. Beads made of clay or stone or gems. I used to have a bracelet made of lava and squirrel vertebrae. I loved that thing.
This is a weird blog – I’m really not sure where I’m going with it. I’ve just been thinking about that bracelet. I miss it. It was supposed to help me avoid anger/stay calm and also ward off depression I believe. Did it? well, yes, actually. I feel like it did help me.
And why not? I mean, I know cat bones are designed to vibrate at a specific frequency so that the vibration of their purring actually helps the bones to heal quickly. They use the concept in sports medicine. Are squirrels like cats? I don’t know. Were the bones just decorative and the real magic was in the lava? Maybe I need to get myself a bucket of lava and see what happens.
I know there are entire fields of study about this – some of which are hooey and some are very cool. I am a big fan of the science of vibration, which is one place that many of the effects of such beads and bones come from.
I just don’t know much about it. Perhaps it is time I do some research. Perhaps its time I go out and start collecting squirrel vertebrae. I don’t know.
One thought on “Beads and Bones”
Well, the way the skwrls do that suicide run across the road just as one is driving past, I’m sure there’s no lack of bones available. 😀
