Sodalite wire wrapped pendant
Necklace length: 28.5 Inches; Pendant height: 8.5 Centimeters; Pendant width: 2.2 Centimeters
This gemstone pendant is made using bare copper wire. It has been treated and polished for an antique look.
It hangs on a pure copper ball chain with a ball clasp. The chain length can be shortened- just send me a message and I can trim it for you. If you are unsure about the length you want and you have a cutting tool at home- this chain can easily be shortened to your liking.
The large gemstone is sodalite The said healing properties are as follows:
It encourages rational thought, objectivity, truth and intuition, along with verbalization of feelings. Sodalite brings emotional balance and calms panic attacks. It enhances self-esteem, self-acceptance and self-trust.
I'm unsure of what the top gemstone is. I bought it at a trading post on the side of the road during a road trip in Arizona. I got both stones on the same day. They must have wanted to be together :)
My pieces have stories and adventures behind them. I love working with stones- their stories could be millions of years old before they became part of my story and now they are part of yours.
The series this pendant is a part of is called Cairns. Rock cairns are stacks of rocks that can be seen marking hiking trails. Rock stacking has carried spiritual meaning across cultures for centuries. The act of balancing stones carries with it a practice of patience and a physical effort of creating balance.
In a sense I'm still trying to find balance with these pendants. How do the stones work with one another? How do they need to be wrapped functionally and aesthetically? Its intention and patience and it is my version of a wearable cairn.
Each order comes nicely packaged for gift giving- even if you are gift giving yourself :)
