Lily of the Valley Pendant ✦ 18 Inches ✦ Bealtaine Collection
Both lily of the valley and amber are associated with tears of mourning - lily of the valley is said to have grown from Mother Mary’s tears for her dead son and appears on headstones to this day, while amber appears in multiple ancient myths as tears for dead heroes and lovers. Inversely, lily of the valley represents a return to happiness after trauma, while amber embodies abundance and growth. This pendant is meant to serve as a guide through the darkness and reminder of the light. Entirely handmade sterling lily of the valley flowers hang their heads atop handmade leaves. They flank a natural Baltic amber gem, illuminated by a window cut from the back. My maker's mark and .925 for sterling adorn the back of the pendant, and the entire piece has been blackened and polished for the appearance of a recently unearthed ancient relic.
✦ Details ✦ Sterling silver. Natural Baltic amber and smoky quartz. 18 inches total length. Please note that due to factors such as neck and bust size, the piece may fall differently on the model than on you. The pendant measures 3 5/16 inches wide. You will receive the pictured pendant.
