Health Benefits of Wearing Silver Jewelry

Did you know? There are benefits to wearing silver jewelry...besides looking good. We've pulled out a few interesting factoids that may interest you!

Across many cultures, silver has been used as an effective aid against colds, flus and fighting infection. 

Studies by the University of Southampton (2008) have also proven that wearing silver rings can reduce arthritic symptoms. 

Due to its natural properties, it has aided in improved circulation and immunity due to its electrical and thermal conductivity.

How is this possible? The short-form scientific answer is this: Positively-charged silver ions create a conductive field which redirects electromagnetic radiation away from the body, aiding in improved blood circulation, balancing the body's temperature, as well as binding to negatively charged receptors in bacteria... hence helping us fight against infection and disease. 

Well, we certainly will love our silver jewelry more, won't we? That which does double duty and keeps us looking good on the inside AND the outside! 

What Does Locally Made Really Mean? 

I was talking with some of my colleagues who are also at Granville Island market, and the subject was about what it means to be a local artist who makes everything...locally.

What does it mean to shop locally? You're supporting artists who make everything here...with their very own hands. No, we don't source out our work to a different country, to pay someone less to do what we do ourselves. With each piece we produce, we handpick our materials, and spend hours on the design of each piece, perfecting each one. We focus our energies on each piece to produce something for someone special.

With my work, I say each sterling silver piece finds the right owner... each pendant belongs to a special couple, a special family, who get to 'wear' their loved ones with them and keep them close to their heart.

So next time you're down at Granville Island, I hope you get to see and appreciate the artisans for what they live and breathe each day. Support local artists because you celebrate creativity, curiosity, and the quest for art that inspires & touches peoples' hearts.
