The Cruellest Month Shield Pendant - 16 Inch Chain - The Cruellest Month Collection
This pendant is meant to serve as a guide through the discomfort of growth, and as a reminder of the power and capabilities latent within us all. A bold triangular cut of rare lepidolite acts as a shield and a source of comfort. This stunning and rare material dissipates negativity, soothes, and stabilizes like no other. It gets its mauve/lilac coloring from the presence of lithium, and due to this it is thought to relieve stress and anxiety. It stimulates the intellect, encourages independence, and promotes focus by filtering out extraneous distractions in our lives. Lepidolite grants the strength to stand on one’s own, free from the influence of others. It quells uncertainty by promoting confident decision making, and is said to be an excellent companion on journeys of spiritual development. It is wrapped in a sterling branch, the bareness of which reminds us of the beauty that comes from barrenness. A sterling crescent moon echoes the cycles of death and rebirth, waxing and waning, creation and destruction necessary for growth. This piece is meant as a talisman for difficult times, for warrior women, and for those committed to the work of self actualization. My maker's mark and .925 for sterling adorn the back, and this piece has been darkened and polished for a old world magic aesthetic.
*I advise gentle care with all of my jewelry, but please note that lepidolite is a soft material that requires attentive wear. It is only slightly harder than amber on the Mohs hardness scale. If you tend to be rough on your jewels, this may not be the piece for you.
