Persephone's Armor Necklace - 18 1/2 Inches - Descent of Persephone Collection, Vol. V
*AS ANNOUNCED ON MY IG, ALL ORDERS FROM THIS COLLECTION WILL SHIP TUESDAY 10/15.*
“Do not worry about your contradictions - Persephone is both floral maiden and queen of death. You, too, can be both.”
The final necklace in the Descent of Persephone Collection Vol. V has this quote ringing in my ears, and many of you have sent it to me as I worked on this collection. This piece is meant to embody the exact concept described above. Handmade pomegranate blossoms nod to Persephone’s ties to the spring, while handmade oak leaves point to her associations with fall. The ouroboros around the center stone, hand shaped and formed from gloriously textured snakeskin wire, emphasizes the cyclical nature of her role and of all natural things, while the triple moon formation harkens to the same notion while incorporating divine feminine power. In the center of this piece sits the most incredible garnet I’ve ever owned, which reminds us of the pomegranate seeds Persephone consumed to initially seal her fate. My maker's mark and .925 for sterling adorn the back of the pendant, which hangs from a heavy sterling chain. This ode to myth and season has been blackened and polished to the finish of an ancient artifact.
-- Details -- Sterling silver. Natural garnet. Pendant measures 3 3/4 inches across the widest point. 18 1/2 inches total necklace length. Please note that due to factors such as neck and bust size, torso length, etc. a certain chain length may appear slightly longer or shorter on the model than it will on you. You will receive the pictured pendant.
