I love this country called Canada!

When you have travelled to close to twenty countries around the world, and have lived in three of them, you are in a very good position to compare and say, Canada is a really

awesome country to live in.

It is a warm, hospitable country who welcomes anyone from anywhere who comes here with a good heart and good intentions. No matter your culture, no matter your religion, Canada can become your home.

Personally, what I like is the people, the nature, the beauty, the love of the outdoor life, and the adventure that can be found just up the hill, or around the corner from your front door. Most people I know have a kayak, or a canoe, or a bike, or skis, snow shoes, boats, fishing gear. Most families have tents and camping stuff and regularly take their kids on camping trips. This is what life is like here in Canada, where we want to get close to nature, close to the earth, stay close with our families.

This year Canada turns 150.

To commemorate this milestone birthday, I have designed beautiful red, white and black bead bracelets, accented with sterling silver spacers, and a cute little sterling silver maple leaf charms. The beads are red jade, white shell, and black onyx.

Why did I choose these particular stones?

Red Jade has always been seen as a strong Life-Force stone, a stone of high energy that dispels fear and worry. It is also seen as a stone of luck that jump-starts prosperity and physical health.

Onyx is a grounding stone that connects the body to the earth and to family. It is the stone seen to help one to become master of one’s own destiny, and is worn as protection to keep the mind sharp.

White Shells have always been connected to the wide open seas, oceans that can tie

distant far-away places together. Shells are thought to enhance a traveller’s luck and to strengthen long-distance relationships.

In my mind, these three stones are so relevant to the Canadian life, to our active life energy, our close connection with the earth and family, and to many of us, our relatives still living in far off lands.

Celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday by wearing one of these bracelets, and you too can say how awesome Canada is. To purchase your own Canada 150th Birthday bracelet, click here.

  • Hi Liz,
    I was wondering if you ever did a 3 panel folding silk screen of Sarah Bernhardt design. I have the screen .. it is beautiful but do not know the artist. I was done for someone else and I purchased it in a second hand shop in Kerrisdale. If you send me your email I can send you some pictures as you may know others who specialize in silk.
    I love your work!
    Adele 🙂

    1. Hi Adele, thank you for your interest. No I have not done a Sarah Bernhardt design but I am actually working on a three panel design for a Christmas show in November. Send me your email and I will let you know once it is all done so that you can see the images.
      All the best
