Throughout the world SILVER is identified with lunar manifestations since it enhance the power of the moon, particularly during full and new moon. Expressing the moon’s energy, it has gentle, cool, smoothing effect, thus it is used to conjure patience and perseverance to the wearer. Favorably used together with gemstones, due to the fact that the metal attracts and retains the qualities emitted by the stones. The benefits of silver are derived from its electrical and thermal conductivity—i.e. its ability to generate an electrical field that distributes electricity and heat around the body. The metal is reflective, as the moon reflects the light of the sun, so does silver reflect electromagnetic radiation away from the body and support positively-charged silver ions to create a conductive field. The field stimulates the body’s existing conductivity, improving blood circulation, temperature balance and general healing. To store water, wine, and vinegar in silver bottles is an ancient method to make it last longer, and according to the “father of medicine”, Hippocrates, silver had salutary healing and anti-disease properties. The silver used is handcrafted by the indigenous Karen Hill Tribe artisans, carrying down their ancient silversmithing traditions. Fairtrade purchase supports the welfare of future generations of Karen people and their ability to preserve this local art of sustainable silver works.
