Inspired by ancient teachings about the purpose and effect of the chakras on the human life, Alex Soldier created a one of a kind jewelry masterpiece containing symbols of this knowledge of healthy, happy and meaningful living. The word ‘chakra’ is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’ and is described as a spinning wheel of light. A chakra is like a whirling powerhouse of energy.
Within our bodies we have seven of these major energy centers which are represented by seven color stones that match to each chakra’s energy color. At the center of the composition is the Flower of Life with natural colored stones, each of which resonates with a specific chakra and thus balances the body's energy flow.
The Flower of Life is considered to be sacred geometry that contains ancient spiritual value and depicts the fundamental forms of space and time. It brings clarity and deeper insight into the very fabric of life. Alex Soldier’s Flower of Life is made of 18 karat gold—a symbol of the sun known to charge us with its energy and vitality. The flower features 34 separate components that form together a remarkable composition.
Thanks to Soldier's jewelry-making magic, the piece can be worn as a brooch or a necklace. This genius interchangeable technique is Alex Soldier's signature proprietary invention that makes transformation from one piece to another simple and effortless. Flower diameter: 53.6 mm. Handmade in NYC from responsibly sourced materials. One of a kind.
