This handcrafted pendant features an incredibly gorgeous piece of Carnelian that measures approximately 26mm x 20mm. It has been made with a solid sterling silver 16 gauge bail, a thick sterling silver backing, a fine silver serrated bezel setting and sterling silver trims. I have also hand-sawed a flickering sun into the back of the pendant, so that the stone can have contact with the skin when it is worn. The setting is sanded smooth, oxidized, polished to a high shine, and strung onto a 72cm adjustable black vegan cord. This means that it can be worn as a choker, long layering necklace, or anything in between! Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand using recycled silver, environmentally-friendly methods and cruelty-free materials.
💎 CARNELIAN LORE:
In history, Carnelian was worn by Ancient Warriors around their neck for courage and to give them the physical power to conquer their enemies. In Egypt it was worn by master architects to show their rank of builder, and alchemists of the Middle Ages used it as a boiling stone to activate the energy of other crystals.
Today, wearing Carnelian is said to boost prosperity, learning and good luck. It is also thought that it boosts organisation, stamina and drive. It is a great stone for actors, singers and anyone who has a career on the stage.
