I created this handcrafted statement pendant using two incredible stones; a luminous Sri Lankan Rainbow Moonstone and a shimmering piece of Obsidian from Mount Hekla in Iceland. The Obsidian is filled with a stream of gold across it, much like a stream of stars across a black sky. The pendant setting has been made from a hand-sawed solid sterling silver back-plate, a 16 gauge (1.4mm) bail, fine silver bezels around each stone, and sterling silver twisted trims and accents. I have also hand-carved a bat mid-flight into the back of the pendant as a cut-out, both as an extra detail, and also so that the stone can have contact with the skin when the pendant is worn. The pendant has been oxidised in parts for contrast, sanded smooth, and polished to a high shine. It hangs from a 72cm adjustable black organic cotton cord, meaning thaat 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!

💎 MOONSTONE LORE:
Rich in historical significance, Moonstone was admired by the Romans for over 2000 years, as they believed it was born from solidified rays of the moon.
Legendary as 'The Traveller's Stone,' Moonstone is great for protection at night or on the water. It is a great stone to keep during a first love or any new relationship. It helps creativity, confidence and self expression, and helps its wearer be more successful in their day to day working activities.
💎 OBSIDIAN LORE:
Obsidian is a stone that can be traced all the way back to Paleolithic times, where it was often used to make arrowheads and other tools. Cherished for its deep, glossy sheen, Obsidian is often called volcanic glass because it is formed from molten lava that has cooled very quickly. Considered by many to be a powerful protection stone, Obsidian is thought to help identify your dark side so that its healing properties can clear it away from your psyche. Instead of hiding from our inner truth, Obsidian shines a light on the negativity and clears it away, helping us to choose the path leading towards light and love. It is a stone that is also known for its stabilizing and grounding effects, making it an excellent crystal for reigning in scattered energies. Golden Obsidian, also known as Gold Sheen Obsidian, is a strongly protective stone. It is particularly effective for scrying, and balancing energy fields.
