Jade is prized for it's healing and protective qualities. It harmonizes and balances the heart, aiding in both emotional and physical well-being. It helps strengthen and soothe one's nervous system. It assists one in learning to enjoy physical life. It reminds one to "smell the roses," touch someone you love, and share your abundant heart with others. Jade is good for attracting abundance and prosperity and for broadcasting peace and loving-kindness to all in one's surroundings. It helps one to receive Divine abundance on all levels and to share that abundance with others, in affirmations of plenty. Helps heal scarcity-mindedness, fear of money and poverty and other symptoms of belief in money as a measure of worth.
Gold revitalizes one's physical energies and magnifies the power of most gemstones. It supports openness and integrity and builds confidence in the wearer. It is related to worldly knowlege and an understanding of manifestation. It carries the energy of the Sun, stimulating one's will to grow and stretch beyond one's current experiences. Gold can assist one in overcoming paralysis and fear, allowing one to move through difficult circumstances. It evokes strength, determination and will and can augment low physical vitality and depressive tendencies.

It has arrived! The photograph was well taken and the kirpan looked so beautiful, but the photo does not do it justice! What a magnificent piece of work it is, and thank you and Julie Warenski-Erickson so much! Truly a legacy item. The fit, finish and balance are stunning

At Christmas, I was very surprised to receive from my wife a present of such a wonderful folding knife you have made. You are a great artist and you have a wonderful profession to make things like this. With these kind of knives you give a lot of pleasure for those people, who estimate this great work. I collect knives and I must say your knife is the most beautiful knife in my collection up 'till now. All the best and a happy new year.

Your website does not do much justice to this beautiful masterpiece created with great care and affection. Thanks a lot. I did receive it today. The size was bigger than I expected but then it's the way a Kirpan should be. I will soon order another one for my day to day use. Thanks again.

I collected the Kirpan last week, but then flew out to Europe the next day and only arrived back today...
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is absolutely amazing, very nice work indeed - I am most astonished. I have not had a chance to show it to anyone yet, but that would be done in due time.
