Persephone's Elixir Pendant - 16 Inches - Descent of Persephone Collection, Vol. V
*AS ANNOUNCED ON MY IG, ALL ORDERS FROM THIS COLLECTION WILL SHIP TUESDAY 10/15.*
An attempt to distill and bottle the essence of Persephone, of her strength in the face of weaving a life between worlds, of the way she nurtures the equal and opposite aspects of her existence. A potion of petrified wood swirls within a 14k gold filled bezel, and is topped by handmade sterling cap with a natural garnet that is also set in a 14k gold filled bezel. The dualistic coloring of the petrified wood reminds us - like the myth of Persephone does - to balance dark and light, that in endings there are beginnings. This fiery material is truly reminiscent of Persephone’s underworld home, another reason I chose to use it for this theme. It pairs beautifully with garnet, which is named from the Latin word for seed because of its similar appearance to a pomegranate seed, an ideal stone for this myth. Garnet has also been used since ancient times as a protective stone for travelers. This natural faceted garnet sits flanked by handmade stalks of grain, symbolizing Persephone’s association with the harvest. I created this elixir for those seeking balance, for those seeking protection on journeys both inward and outward, and for those who move between realms. May it also serve as a reminder that just as Persephone is both Queen of the Underworld and bringer of springtime, it is beautiful and powerful to be many things at once. My maker's mark and .925 for sterling adorn the back of the pendant, which hangs from heavy sterling chain. This piece has been blackened and polished to the finish of an ancient artifact.
-- Details -- Sterling silver and 14k gold filled. Please note gold filled is not the same as gold plated. It is a much thicker layer of gold bonded to base metal, and will not flake or peel. Natural garnet and natural petrified palm root. Pendant measures 3 1/16 inches tall. 16 inch 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.
