Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 8, 2004
Precious stones have fascinated Hilary Eldridge since her childhood. Today, she is a jewelry designer with a unique artistic perspective and a deep respect for the healing qualities of gems and crystals. This passion for beauty and the metaphysical has brought clarifying insight to EldridgeÂs designs. As a result, her jewelry speaks to women who expect quality while searching for pieces that resonate with their hearts as well. Eldridge now announces the opening of her online gallery, ÂThe Goddess Within,Â featuring her designs for women and girls at http://www.thegoddesswithin.net.
Meet the artist and see The Goddess Within jewelry collection at a special showing on December 10, 6 pm to 9 pm at SalonBlonde, 1643 W. North Avenue, Chicago, IL.
Eldridge carefully chooses each stone and combines them with sterling silver, Czech fired glass beads and SwarovskiÂ crystals to design unique, eye-catching jewelry. Her keen artistic sense makes this melding of raw material, the energies the stones emit, and the unique qualities they represent result in jewelry of exceptional character and beauty.
ÂThe Goddess Within celebrates the beauty within each of us. I craft each piece from some of the earthsÂ greatest treasures,Â notes Eldridge. ÂThe qualities of the stones I use add a special dimension to each piece. Throughout history, people have treasured gems for their mystical, energetic, and healing properties. The intention of the stones is woven into each piece,Â Eldridge explains.
The Goddess Within has an extensive line of handcrafted jewelry from which to choose. This necklace, Gratitude, showcases Jade, which symbolizes the five virtues of humanity; wisdom, justice, compassion, modesty and courage. Eldridge selects a chiseled jade teardrop to gracefully hang from a strand of jade, turquoise, smoky quartz and sterling silver. Turquoise symbolizes beauty, and smoky quartz was used as a protective stone throughout history. These essential, beautiful raw materials are crafted to suit the power they imbue. This necklace is designed as a reminder for us to be grateful for all that the universe has shared. Gratitude is an exquisite example of the philosophy, craftsmanship, and design expertise used to craft each piece in the Hilary Eldridge collection only found at The Goddess Within.
Custom orders are encouraged. Hilary Eldridge is available for consultation to weave the intention of your wishes into your handcrafted, original piece of jewelry. Please contact the artist at http://www.thegoddesswithin.net.
