This mini Handpan-pandant is not just a wicked piece of handmade art - it's also a strong healing stone: A full-fledged Orgone Generator made with quarz, amethyst, black tourmalin, sodalite, fluorite, rosequarz and a drop of Gangawater.
So you're not just wearing a cool pendant, it's even doing you good :-)
Just a quick word on Orgones in general if you're interested:
Orgone Generators are powerful energy purifiers.
The name “Orgone” derives from Dr. Wilhelm Reich, a colleague of Dr. Sigmund Freud. It means the same as Prana, Ether or Chi – Universal Life Force. He built the first Orgone Accumulators in the 1930’s - big boxes for people to sit in and get showered by healthy energy. He also conducted very successful experiments with Orgone Cloudbusters, bringing rain to deserts. He was discredited by the FDA and put into prison for selling Orgones where he died some days before release....
Based on his research, an American couple, Don and Carol Croft, invented the Orgone Generators in the 1990’s. The principle is simple, but effective: Organic material, in this case resin made from mineral oil, attracts positive and negative lifeforce. The embedded crystals balance the energies, and the inorganic material metal dispels the now harmonious life force.
Electronic devices like Pc's, laptops, smartphones & cellphones emit low-frequency microwaves, which literally kills lifeforce, creating DOR (deadly Orgone) which is harmful lo living beings. Orgone devices transmute & revitalise DOR and thus create an healthy environment - thats's why Orgone devices are so good to have around.
These days Orgones are made and used by thousands of people all over the world, conscious of the energetic pollution in which we are living – and actively doing something against it. Be one of them.
All pendants are 100% handmade - and with that I really mean made by the two hands of one brother who created them from scratch. The shape of the handpandant is the result of many nights work to create a stunningly detailed similarity to a proper Handpan(Hang, Pantam, BEll, Halo, Orb ect).
The actual work process includes different materials: resin, gold leaf, metal shavings, various crystals, sandalwood shavings, a drop of Ganga water and a copper coil.
Just a quick info on some of the materials used: The resin is produced by a small family-owned business in Germany. The metal shavings are supplied by a befriended metal worker. The raw crystals used are cleansed, purified and crushed in a very conscious way to ensure their highest energetic purity and nuff Irie vibez. The Ganga water was hand collected in Haridwar, India. The sandalwood comes from a small rare piece of wood from south america. The copper coil is hand rolled. The rim gets fitted by hand, and the bails are handmade as well.
To further ensure a high grade of artistic perfection and energetic purity my bro Raphael meditates and practices spiritual rituals before beginning work.
You see, you really get something crafted with love :-)
This album is now free to download, but a contribution of between £5-£15 is suggested as this money goes directly to the artists to cover the costs of living and future recordings :)
Crystal Waves has the characteristic of being born from an improvisation on an Indian stage between Daniel Waples and Alexei Levin.
Later in 2011, Waples was invited to Geneva, Switzerland, by Levin to record an album blending exemplary piano and three handpans (PanArt 'Hang', BEllArt 'BElls' & SPB 'Pantam'), all being played by Waples and on scales that he had never used before.
Crystal Waves carries a sublime message of peace and balance, and as much as it heals the mind, it also would appeal to classical music lovers.

Please note - artists make more money from each Bandcamp sale than they would from iTunes, Spotify, or any other distribution system. Thank you for your support.
*Why not set a price?*
I have a passion for creating music and it is my dream that as many people as possible can enjoy this music regardless of being able to contribute financially.
This does not mean that I wish for everyone to take my life's work for free, but rather that I ask you to treat the downloads that I offer in much the same way as you would a musician whom you see performing live music on the streets, in a train station, market or anywhere else performing with the intention of entertaining passers by and providing a soundtrack to their daily lives and in return simply putting their hat around the crowd to collect tips and contributions from those inspired and able to give something back.
For this reason much of my music can be downloaded from my website for any donation, ranging from nothing to anything that you are able to
We are now living in a wonder era where Internet based social mediums are available almost everywhere to practically everyone. In terms of human sociology the textbooks say we have never been as connected as we are right now in this very moment.
I have dedicated pretty much my everything, and sometimes more, to introduce this art into people lives across our globe.
I do this by investing everything I can back into my mission.
If you enjoy my work and you are in a position to do so then I invite you to contribute and support for a download, buying any of my physical merchandise or indeed making a donation via PayPal.
I also encourage you to share this music with friends and family but I do ask that you pass on the link to my website so that they can find out the story behind ‘Daniel Waples - Hang in Balance’ and thus connect with the music in a more integral way ☺
If my music is to be used for your own projects, be it a YouTube video from your family holidays or a commercial advertising campaign, express permission from myself must be granted prior to posting online.
I thank each and every listener for his or her attention.
