NEW COLLECTION! Ice Age fossils are the inspiration for a new series of amulets handmade by me, Susan Tooker of Spinning Castle. The fossils serve as the base for a pendant that I combine with other gemstones and rare beads. Each amulet is truly one-of-a-kind because each these fossils date from the last Ice Age and are over 10,000 years old! The color, texture and feel of the fossils is fascinating!
EPONA REGINA is a tribal amulet that features a stunning Ice Age Horse tooth fossil pendant with charm dangles of Smoky Quartz crystal points. The Ice Age Horse tooth fossil was discovered in the Suwannee River. This is a rock hard molar from a horse that roamed North America during the last Ice Age over 10,000 years ago. My concept was to create ornately beaded necklaces that recall more ancient times where gemstones were worn as amulets of protection, strength and power. EPONA REGINA showcases the wire wrapped fossil specimen with African recycled glass beads. The necklace is long with focal beads of Ametrine, Lemon Quartz, Ammonite, and bone. EPONA REGINA is also complimented with black patina chain, plus the necklace features dark oxidized wire and findings. EPONA REGINA feels substantial and is reflective of Warrior Spirit!
Necklace measures 36 inches long.
SMOKY QUARTZ stimulates the cooperation of multiple energies toward a common goal. A wonderful stone for relationships, and for people in recovery who are part of a larger group, whether it be work, hobby, a home group, business group, or association. It is a gentle grounding stone that instills balance and harmony, and can help bring peace to you, enhancing quiet reflection during meditation without the interference of the thinking mind. Smokey Quartz helps to set aside willfulness and headstrong behavior. Smokey quartz has the ability to transform negative energy, and is particularly effective in dealing with anger and resentments. It clears up communication difficulties, and helps to dissolve mental and emotional blockages that can get in the way of perception or learning.
AMETRINE is a natural combination of amethyst and citrine. Ametrine energies are said to stimulate the intellect and rid the aura of negative energy. It is also said to be helpful for releasing negative emotional programming. Ametrine is used mystically to aid in meditation, boost psychic abilities, relieve tension, disperse negativity and help to eliminate prejudice. It is related primarily to the Crown and Root Chakras.
LEMON QUARTZ is celebrated as the happiness stone. Lemon Quartz purifies negative thoughts and emotions, and dissolves depression. Amplifies positive feelings and ideas, to enhance clarity and communication. Grants tolerance and forgiveness to the wearer. Excellent for harmonizing and balancing, thus Lemon Quartz is extremely beneficial for meditation and creative visualization.
HORSE TOTEMS are symbols of freedom. This totem brings new journeys. It will teach you to ride in new directions and discover your own freedom and power. A guide to overcoming obstacles, the Horse is the symbol of Wind. Horse people are usually friendly and adventurous. If a horse has shown up in your life, you must ask yourself: "Am I feeling constricted? Do you need to move on or allow others to move on?" Horse will teach you how to ride into new directions to awaken and discover your own freedom and power.
COYOTE TOTEM symbolizes playfulness, nonsense, intelligence, cunning and joy. Coyote people form strong family bonds and have strong preferences. They are highly adaptable, opportunistic, and versatile. They are often considered to be "pranksters" or "tricksters" in many cultures likely due to their cunning hunting techniques of running prey to exhaustion towards a hidden pack member who then finishes the kill. People with coyote totems will often be cunning as well. Coyote's barks are very shrill and distinctive and how they call their pack together. Coyote people can use their own voice in ways that draw people together as well, but may sometimes have a hidden agenda.
