Persephone's Palm Pendant - 18 Inch Chain - Descent of Persephone Collection, Vol. V
*AS ANNOUNCED ON MY IG, ALL ORDERS FROM THIS COLLECTION WILL SHIP TUESDAY 10/15.*
“But if you have tasted anything, then you shall go back down to the underworld and dwell there for the third part of the season...Whenever the earth blossoms with all the sweet-smelling flowers of spring, then you will come back up from the misty darkness, a great wonder to gods and to mortal men.” - from the Homeric “Hymn to Demeter”, the original text of the myth of Persephone.
The hand of Persephone, outstretched in sterling silver, holds a pomegranate handcrafted from sterling silver and a natural garnet set in a 14k gold-filled bezel. It was seeds of a pomegranate that Persephone consumed in the underworld, which bound her to return there at the start of each fall and remain there until spring. A brass crescent moon floats serenely above, a nod to the divine feminine ever-present in this myth, and the cycles of waxing and waning, death and rebirth, descent and ascent. Below, wheat and pomegranate leaves spring forth from a lace sleeve and remind us that although Persephone’s absence causes months of barren darkness, her return sparks the season of fertility and abundance. She nurtures these dualities of hers, and we should grant ourselves the same freedom. My maker's mark and .925 for sterling adorn the back of the pendant, which hangs from a sterling chain. This piece has been blackened and polished to the finish of an ancient artifact.
-- Details -- Sterling silver, brass, and 14k gold filled. Please note that gold filled is different from gold plated. It is a much thicker layer of gold bonded to base metal and will not flake or peel. Natural garnet. Pendant measures 3 5/8 inches tall including the bail (loop that attaches it to the chain). 18 inch sterling chain and clasp. 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.
