Horse Cross Necklace, Spiral Heart Mexican Fire Opal Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The eye-catching ETERNAL LOVE handmade necklace is a perfect gift for the woman who loves unique cross jewelry, loves horses, and loves wearing one of a kind designs.  The beautiful artisan necklace features a two-sided pewter running horse on cross pendant, faceted Mexican fire opal and sterling silver.  The lead free pewter pendant, artisan designed and hand cast in the U.S., has a wonderfully rustic appeal with its hammered texture.  One side has a raised running horse design with an etched spiral of life - running horse glyphs and spirals are found at many ancient sites worldwide.  To add even more interest, a raised heart is found on the opposite side so you can wear the cross necklace either way.  The cross pendant was oxidized to bring out the detailing and then polished to a reflective finish (it gleams like old silver, something the photos failed to capture).  A heavy gauge sterling silver jump ring connects the horse on a cross pendant to the main body of the necklace securely.
Perfectly complementing the horse cross pendant are amazing ombre Mexican fire agate gemstone discs.  Mexican fire opal is a variety of opal with natural colors that range from very dark orange to clear, with about every shade of orange in between.  To add even more fiery elegance, each disc is faceted for incredible sparkle.  Since the fire opal discs are hand cut, they are similar in size but not exactly the same.  Color blocked groupings of fire opals are separated by small sterling silver beads.  To finish the one of a kind necklace, an artisan made Thai Hill Tribes fine silver toggle clasp set with stamped flowers was used.  Carefully designed by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the ETERNAL LOVE cross and horse necklace is a definite eye catcher for the woman who adores exquisite cross jewelry with unique symbolism.

Crosses are a symbol of atonement and reminds Christians of God's love in sacrificing his own son for humanity.  Horses symbolize strength and vitality and the ability to overcome obstacles in life, to pursue goals no matter what may stand in the way.  Spirals are associated with the cycles of time; the seasons; the cycle of birth, growth, death, and then rebirth. Hearts represent never ending love.  Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  Mexican Fire Agate is believed to strengthen the courage to follow our spiritual path, even into the dark places we fear, and to emerge triumphantly again into the light.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.

The one of a kind ETERNAL LOVE cross and horse pendant necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
