ANCIENT ALCHEMY is an amulet necklace that features a Druzy Quartz pendant with charm dangles of an Ice Age Bird bone fossil and an antique skeleton key with garnet beads. My concept was to create ornately beaded necklaces that recall more ancient times where gemstones were worn as amulets of protection, strength and power. ANCIENT ALCHEMY showcases the wire wrapped fossil specimen with a freshwater pearl, copper spacers, and a quartz bead from Africa. The necklace has brown leather ties with a 3" chain extender. ANCIENT ALCHEMY was created with attentive details and is reflective of Warrior Spirit!
DRUZY QUARTZ have many tiny formations like a "skin" of sparkly crystals. Druzy usually grew originally over another crystal or matrix, though they may not be attached to it currently. Occasionally they are floater clusters with no attachment previously to a matrix. Light and joy are brought to an environment or ritual by a Druzy Cluister. As a type of Crystal Cluster they also bring harmony to groups. They have energy that is especially helpful for Spiritual worship and Lightwork. Like other types of clusters, they can empower the energy of other crystals and stones. Placing a stone on the druzy cluster for a day or longer period enhances their energy, especially if placed in moonlight or sunlight for 24 hours.
FRESHWATER PEARL signifies faith, charity and innocence. It enhances personal integrity and helps to provide a focus to ones attention. Pearl symbolises purity and is known as a “stone of sincerity." It brings truth to situations and loyalty to a “cause”. Inhibits boisterous behavior. Freshwater Pearls are absorbing by nature and because of this must be used with caution. If you feel excessively negative while wearing a Pearl, it will hold that energy until it is worn again. Remember, Pearl is the result of layer upon layer of substance produced to combat irritation. It is very nurturing.
Necklace measures 16 inches long with a 3 inch extender.
BIRD TOTEM - Birds in general are survivalists. They will first choose flight over fight. They instinctively know that fighting is a dangerous endeavor. Whereas flight is avoiding trouble: possible injury or death. Birds have superb reflexes. They teach us awareness and adaptability. Birds represent the air element and are also teachers of proper breathing. Song birds teach us about the healing properties of sound.
