HARMONY - noun  a consistent, orderly, or pleasing arrangement of parts; congruity.

This beautiful yellow Rosarita set in silver (with little pops of 18ky gold) shines so brightly! It was inspired during a yoga class. 

The style of yoga I practice most is Iyengar Yoga. The founder of this style B.K.S. Iyengar wrote many books on yoga practice and yoga philosophy. I really like it when an instructor teaches philosophy alongside the poses.

Recently my teacher, Jim, talked about a time at a conference when a senior student was demonstrating downward dog and Mr. Iyengar was pointing out the different actions in the pose. Mr. Iyengar said that there should be HARMONY in the body.

This was a revelation to me because at times, even after more than 25 years of practice, I feel less than harmonious in certain poses. As a class, we talked more about what “feeling harmony in the body” means and Jim said, “go for your optimum, not your maximum”. Brilliant, I can do that! 

I chose this bright yellow Rosarita to hold the word HARMONY. The Rosarita is set in sterling silver surrounded by sterling silver bead wire with an 18ky gold accent bead. The pendant measures 1.25 inches long. It hangs on a 24-inch Sterling Silver chain. The chain has one linking oval in 18ky gold.  

The Rosarita “stone” is a glass-like material, slag (a by-product) from gold mining. It is reclaimed. I have a deep affinity for reclaiming. My hope with this piece is that it inspires you to notice HARMONY in your life.
