Petrified Palm Root Duality Talisman ✦ 17 1/2 Inches ✦ Descent of Persephone Collection, Vol. VI
One of my favorite aspects of Persephone is her duality. She is at once Queen of the Underworld and Goddess of Spring, representative of both fertility and desolation. Her tale unfolds in realms of lightness and darkness, one above and one below. Her descent into the underworld ushers in the fall and leaves the earth barren, while her return brings spring and regrowth. Like a beautiful seasonal dance, Persephone learns to masterfully navigate each realm, nourishing equally the dark and light parts of the world and herself. I created a pair of pendants in reverence of this aspect of the myth of Persephone. This one features a natural fiery petrified palm root specimen so reminiscent of Persephone’s underworld kingdom. It is flanked by handmade scythes, wheat, and poppy pods, which are an ode to Persephone’s role as the bringer of Autumn and Queen of the Dead. My maker's mark and .925 for sterling adorn the back of the pendant, and the entire piece has been blackened and polished to echo the mood of the myth.
