Cailleach's Armor Pendant ✦ 18 1/4 Inches ✦ The Age of the Cailleach Collection
I created this piece in homage to the crone of crones, the Celtic divine hag and bringer of winter, the mother of all the tribes of Ireland, protector, guide through transitions, and wisest of them all: the Cailleach. The most amazing moonstone I've ever seen sits front and center in this piece. I selected this gem from my supplier's personal high grade moonstone collection, and as difficult as it will be to part with it, I could not wait to feature it in a piece dedicated to my favorite deity from Celtic mythology. This stone flashes icy blues reminiscent of the Cailleach's blue skin, and boasts white striations that echo her frosty branch-like hair and the winter season when she rules the land. This stunning stone sits surrounded by sterling branches, made bare in winter's cold. This scene is flanked by sterling crescent moons adorned with handmade bundles of wheat, which are a nod to the Cailleach's associations with the final harvest at Samhain. The overall shape of this pendant is that of the triple moon, a symbol of the maiden, mother, and crone, or the divine feminine in triplicate. This one of a kind statement piece is 18 inches in total length, with the pendant itself measuring about 4 inches wide. My maker's mark and .925 for sterling adorn the back. This piece has been darkened and selectively polished to highlight the details, and to create the air of an ancient jewel unearthed from the frozen land.
