Garnet crystals, as it's both a January gemstone as well as a Fire element stone in Feng Shui. For the rooster's head I've used rubies, Blue Tourmaline crystals for the eye and Citrine for the beak.
The constellations of the zodiac are traditionally rendered in pictographs called glyphs. In the ancient world the glyphs were carved into stone and the priests would run their fingers along the groove to enter into a trance state. In the trance they could tell the future and were able to tell the peasants when to plant and when to take the bull out to breed with the cows. In this way the priests could enter into the energetic dynamics of nature for the purpose of reading the signs in the heavens and how they were to play out on the earth.
Using correlating stones to signs represented, I started work on astrology glyphs.
Bespoke signage made to order keeping within specific requirements. Here the specific colours in the stones used, as well as fonts match exactly with the establishment's logo.

The same can be replicated of any of your chosen image or logo using your chosen stones or those suggested by myself. I can suggest stones based on metaphysical properties and colour.
Planetary glyphs based on alchemical symbols representing the celestial energies. These symbols encompass various cultures as well as time periods in human history. Planetary glyphs represent transcendental and metaphysical principles that underlie our universe.
Glyphs revisited as art for your space, altar or as decorative reminders of the all encompassing and pertinent energies present in our universe.
The Hebrew alphabet represent the building blocks of creation. The letters posses beautiful form and and a mesmerising detail that transforms the observer into a world of magic. Intrinsically linked with numerology, each letter of the Hebrew alphabet provides a story and a link to the knowing of God force. Plain to any observer that this truly is a language of light.
Applied in the home these powerful letters radiate the energies of universal light, love, harmony and the mystical presence of God and emphasise the esoteric art of writing and reading.
Yin Yang made using Black Obsidian & Clear Quartz. Sprinkles of Pyrite sit sparingly upon a backwash of dark navy, royal and midnight blues to imitate the captivating colours of Lapis Lazuli. A merging of light and dark where one cannot exist without the other. This symbol is one that encapsulates this universal duality so simply yet profoundly.
Minerals are rich in power and magic. They have the ability to focus and amplify our thoughts and have therefore long been revered for used in applications for meditation, healing, ritual, transformation and even in modern technology. Energy from crystals have been harnessed for thousands of years and they have been coveted for their mesmerising beauty as a sign of status and wealth. From a perfectly cut Diamond to the rough Amethyst Geode we all have a love and deep connection to the mineral kingdom.
MercuryCrafts uses minerals to communicate, to personify the abstract energy of the crystals into words, images and symbols that we know and love so that we may realise the energy offered to us by these wonderful specimen. In order that they can continuously cleanse our space with their celestial presence and not only as inert objects.
All of these pieces are focused heavily on the crystals used. For example the pieces featured used crystals such as Amethyst, Flourite, Sunstone and Clear Quartz.
