Maddened Moonstone Choker
Organic shaped slabs of hammered 14gf sheet connected by 14kgf wire to faceted rondelles of moonstone capped by gold filled heishi, all hand fabricated.measuring 14.5" with a heavily 22kg plated hook eye closure. Absolutely one of a kind.
The hammering of this piece was cathartic, created as a response to the frustration of feeling helpless against the violence in the world, specifically in Ukraine. All of that pent up energy taken out on metal to counteract the bad juju in a golden life-affirming, ultra-feminine choker. A prayer for the world to know peace and harmony. It is interesting from to finally let this piece go out into the world during the same week the property I manage welcomes its first Ukrainian refugee family.
From the Crystal Vaults about Moonstone: As ancient as the moon itself, Moonstone holds the power of mystery. Its secrets are locked beneath a pearly veil, and with them, our own hidden truths. Only within its reflected light can we begin to understand what it has to teach us. Moonstone is foremost a talisman of the inward journey, taking one deep into the self to retrieve what is missing, the parts of the soul left behind or forgotten, then brought to light.
Since earliest times, Moonstone has been a tangible connection to the magic of the moon – an amulet of protection for travelers, a gift of lovers for passion, a channel for prophecy, and a path to wisdom. Our ties to the moon are strong. As it waxes and wanes in cyclic perfection, it creates the tides and rhythms of our mother, Earth, and influences our behaviors, emotions and spiritual growth. Moonstone calms and encourages, teaching us the natural rhythms of life.
