This talisman pendant…

has a primitive feeling about it which I like.  The components are an interesting mix representing strength with a one and one-half inch wide textured stone near the top. Accented with a tube made of fine silver metal clay above and beads of coral, bone, bronze, and volcanic lava gliding on a sterling silver loop below, it also connotes flexibility.  A bronze metal clay facsimile of a sea urchin dangles at the bottom center.  Could such a talisman pendant empower the wearer to face the trials and tribulations of life with daring and moxie?  I’d like to think so, but perhaps that’s wishful thinking.  At any rate, it’s a substantial piece of jewelry and if wearing it instills some magic that’s all the better!

  1. Gorgeous Barbara! Wherever did you get a double-drilled stone like that (or did you drill it yourself)?


  2. Thanks Lynn! I bought the stone from a vendor at the Bead&Button show last June. I think the vendor was Eclectica in Brookfield, WI. I also picked up some really nice double drilled drusies and can’t wait to use them in new pieces!
