Unless I am totally snowed in, I never miss my Yoga classes. They give me time to meditate and communicate with my body. Another way to connect with your body is through its Chakra, which uses the same colors as the spectrum or a rainbow.

The colors used in my symbolic earring design are:
Red The first chakra relates to your will to live and your physical vitality.
Orange The second chakra governs reproduction, emotions and creativity.
Yellow The third chakra controls the fire of the digestion and the way you digest or process your emotions.
Green The fourth chakra is associated with the thymus gland, heart and circulation.
Blue The fifth chakra concerned with the power and impact of speech.
Indigo or Purple The sixth chakra, known as the third eye, relates to your capacity to visualize and understand mental concepts.
Violet or White The seventh chakra relates to the integration of personality with spirituality.

Instructions
Step 1
Straighten, measure and then cut the two 4½" wires. Working with both wires as though they were one wire, place their center on size 13 on a ring mandrel or ring stick, and bend both ends evenly around the mandrel, forming a U shape.
Step 2
Still working with both wires as though they were one, place the ends into the smallest step of 3-step looping pliers, and roll them toward the outside of the U, forming a complete small circle loop.

Step 3
Lay both wires next to one another, with their small circle loops facing each other. Slide the 4mm beads, separating each with a 4mm daisy spacer, on each of the wires in this order: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, then violet or white.
