Peaceful Goddess Spiral Necklace, Earthy Jasper Handmade Jewelry Gift

Item Description

Filled with a warm, tranquil feeling, the SÍOCHÁNTA goddess necklace is a perfect necklace to wear when you are in a contemplative mood . . . or just want to make a fabulous fashion statement.  The one of a kind necklace features an artisan handmade goddess pendant with a peaceful look on her face, earthy colored jasper gemstones and glowing copper. The stunning, rustic pendant, which looks like an ancient artefact, was created from off-white polymer clay that was molded into a serene goddess face with closed eyes.  The goddess has a spiral design in the middle of her forehead, a spiraling horn is found at the bottom of the pendant and a flower petal-like design around most of the edge of the face. Alcohol inks in shades of light olive green, creamy yellow, dark brown and teal were hand painted on the face. The dark brown ink particularly settled into the recessed areas bringing out the amazing detail and texture of the pendant.  The back of the pendant is also painted and is smooth in texture. Two heavy duty copper jump rings connect the goddess pendant to the main body of the necklace. “Síochánta” is Gaelic for “peaceful.”
 
***Please note:  the photos show the raised areas of the goddess pendant, most notably the mouth and nose, as being particularly light in color.  In real life, those areas blend much more evenly into the color scheme of the pendant.
 
To perfectly complement the goddess face pendant, chunky jasper gemstone rondelles were used.   The natural earthy swirling colors of the jasper range from pale beige through mossy greens, brick red to black, many pieces containing several of the colors, each piece unique.  The jasper i graduated in size, the larger gemstones in front and the smaller to the back. To add gorgeous glow and a sinuous drape to the overall design, 3 mm copper beads separate each jasper rondelle.  A handmade (by me) copper hook clasp and hammered closed ring finishes the necklace. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the SÍOCHÁNTA pendant necklace was created for the woman who adores wearing handmade artisan jewelry . . . and who has more than a bit of goddess in herself!

A peaceful goddess represents the feminine strengths of great caring and compassion, the acts of creation, and the source of sustenance and protection.  A spiral is one of the ancient goddess symbolism in use since at least the late Paleolithic era; it represents the unfolding changes during the journey of life.  Jasper is said to give the wearer the courage to speak out for justice and the bravery to achieve personal independence. Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.

 

The SÍOCHÁNTA artisan 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!
