This handcrafted statement pendant is a one of a kind piece from my recently launched Moonfire collection, inspired by the beauty and magic of the Sun, the Moon and the Stars. It features one of the most beautiful Moonstones I have ever worked with, that shimmers and sparkles with rainbows in the light.
The Moonstone itself measures approximately 27mm by 27mm, and the setting has been made with a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, sterling silver bails and links, a fine silver crown bezel around the stone, and a sterling silver twisted trim. I have hand-sawed a crescent moon cut-out at the back of the piece, both as an extra detail, and also so that the stone can have contact with the skin when work. The piece is finished with the Triple goddess full and crescent moons, all hand carved from recycled brass. The setting has then been sanded smooth, oxidised in parts for contrast, polished to a high shine, and strung onto a 72cm adjustable black organic cotton 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!

💎 THE TRIPLE GODDESS LORE:
The Triple Goddess is a diety worshiped in many cultures throughout history. In ancient times, the Triple Goddess was worshiped in the forms of The Morrigan (an Irish Goddess made up of three forms), Hekate (a Greek Goddess of the Crossroads) and Brigid (a Celtic Goddess of poetry, smithery and healing).
In modern times, many Pagans and Wiccans honour the triple Goddess in the form of the Maiden, the Mother and the Crone. This Goddess is symbolised by three moons (waxing, waning and full), and represents the sacred Mother Goddess, but in all of her three aging forms.
💎 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.
