Hi, I'm Esme. Many of you know me as the original designer of Lunch at The Ritz Jewelry and Ritzy Couture. I'm delighted to say that I will now be carrying brand new and never worn Tabra jewelry designed by my dear and lifelong friend Tabra Tunoa.
Today, I'm offering a brand new and never worn Tabra 925 Sterling Silver Connector Charm with a green faceted Tourmaline and a mix of green and red cabochon Jasper from Esme's Vault OOK305.
Tabra’s charms work together with her Charm Connector Chains. Chain sold separately.
Tourmalines have been used since ancient times in India. Ceremonies included the use of tourmaline as a tool to bring insight and help in the discovery of that which is good. It also served as a tool to make known who or what was the cause of troubles or evil deeds in one’s life. This was said to be the substance that would grant enlightenment, give power over spiritual affairs, reconcile opposites and change base metals to gold.
Jasper is known metaphysically as a stone of gentleness, comfort, and relaxation. When its protective energies are also considered, it's no wonder Jasper is sometimes called the "nurturing stone."

Tabra combines sacred symbols with semi-precious stones, hand-made beads, and ancient materials to create Gypsy earrings, tribal pendants, primitive talismans, exotic bracelets and necklaces. Many of her pieces are one-of-a-kind or limited editions. Whether mystical and spiritual symbols, tribal motifs, shaman-influenced combinations or protective talismans, women worldwide find Tabra's designs both beautiful and powerful.
I met Tabra Tunoa in 1973 when we both started working at the same jewelry factory. When the factory closed soon after, we decided to go into a partnership so that we could both sell our jewelry on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley California. Tabra had a small studio in her apartment, and I had one in mine. We would meet every morning and take turns pulling our shopping cart out to Telegraph Ave to set up "shop" on the street with other street artists.
It wasn't long before Tabra became a huge success. Travelling the world she inspired strong women everywhere to choose their magic and express themselves by wearing her fabulous and exotic jewelry. Her dear friends Amy Tan and Isabel Allende began wearing her jewelry on all their guest appearances and book signing tours. Tabra had become an inspiration to all woman to have a voice and follow their dream.
