Bracelets That Can Change Your Life

Bracelets That Can Change Your Life

Grateful Stones

When it comes to creating a happy life both positive energy and gratitude are very important. Someone that exudes this is my dear friend, Beck Morgan, owner and creator of 'Grateful Stones'. Beck has created gorgeous jewelry to help one live with gratitude and intention. Each stone has a specific purpose. I found it fascinating when learning more about these stones and how wearing them can actually enhance your well-being and wardrobe. 

I met up with Beck to see where he found his passion for his new jewelry line and this is what he had to say. "I've been in love with makeup and working as an artist for 15 years. Formally at MAC and now traveling with Charlotte Tilbury Beauty all over North America. I love connecting with people and helping create confidence.  As a lover of all things beautiful, I was really touched when a friend brought me a Tigers Eye Bracelet from Shanghai as a gift. I wore it every day and got tons of compliments. At that same time I discovered the transformative power of gratitude and would use the beads to count my blessings and de-stress. I started making them for my friends and family and it has taken off! I love going to Gem Shows and getting the most beautiful and powerful beads and sharing them online. I'll always love anything that makes people feel good so makeup and jewelry are perfect!".


If you go to Beck's Etsy page you will see several beautiful bracelets to choose from. If you aren't quite stone savvy and are unsure which one would be best for you, take a look at how Beck describes a handful of these stones and their benefits. 

Basalt: "Created from a volcano, Basalt or Lava beads are a dream! I call it the 'strength under pressure stone'. It also enhances creativity, calms emotions, stability and libido. I wear it to diffuse essential oils by running a few drops all over my bracelets to enjoy all day". 

Jade: "Jade relinquishes self-imposed limitations and assists in cherishing one's ideals and desires, facilitating the ambition and building of those thoughts into physical reality.  Jade provides confidence, self assureness, self-reliance, and self sufficiency. It is the ultimate 'dream stone'. Revered in ancient cultures-as well as today- to access the spiritual world, gain insight into ritualistic knowledge, encourage creativity, and dream-solve".

Moonstone: "Moonstone is an excellent stone used in meditation to understand oneself.  Placing it in the moonlight of a moon reaching its fullness".

Rose Quartz: "Rose Quartz is a powerful self love accelerator, especially when partnered with positive affirmations. It also eases pain and supports tranquility".

Smoky Quartz: "Smoky Quartz is a root chakra stone that enhances survival instincts and can help one reach personal and business goals.  It is also used in assisting in making wishes come true by grounding their essence in reality".

Turquoise: "It's no secret, I LOVE TURQUOISE! It brings strength, protection from harm, psychic sensitivity and connection to the spirit world. If given a Turquoise by a loving friend, that stone will protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. The turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home".

If there is a stone that you had an interest in and it wasn't mentioned please reach out to Beck. He will help answer your questions. One of the many things I love about him.

These are not only a great gift to give yourself but to also make for wonderful "happy days" for loved ones. Beck had posted an amazing duo on his feed that I thought would be a great gift for my sister in law, Nicole Creel.  It was no surprise that she absolutely LOVED them. Here is what she had to say about her amazing new bracelets: "I never knew I would feel so naked without a piece of jewelry. Since the day they were gifted to me (thank you, Taryn) I have worn them. They are simple yet make a powerful statement alone or stacked. Then I read the note that came with my gift and felt the connection between the artist and bracelet and the love was felt. Of course-like any proper social media stalker- I look up Beck on IG and am exposed to the variety of stones and what they assist with. And then what? He has a YouTube channel. So I check that out and it was a love fest! I felt his compassion for others when I asked about what he suggested for my hubby - I wanted to help alleviate some mental financial burden as well as just overall health in the body. He knew right away the combo which turned out so gorgeous and my husband loves it! But what surprised me was he also suggested a book. That spoke volumes to me. Beck brings the world and anyone he meets a lot of warmth, trust, and love and it's crazy how much that is expressed through his craft! I can't praise his work and his heart enough. Even writing this now makes me want to go get another. Love your work Beck, thank YOU".
