|Awesome 4-piece set!|
The set comes with a matching 24" necklace, 7" bracelet, and pair of earrings that hang about 2" from the ear. The pendant itself is about 2 1/2" long, and I'm not sure what kind of stone it is. If anyone does know, please feel free to share!

2. LOVE LOVE LOVE this crescent moon necklace! When I made this, I was thinking about the article I published in the 2013 Llewellyn's Magical Almanac called "Dark Moon Meditations." (If you are interested in reading it, it is the very last one in the book!) Anyway, The "pectoral" look of this necklace, as well as the bold silver crescents, iridescent beads, and black accents made me think of the paragraph in my article where I talk about dark Goddesses, namely Hecate. I tried really hard to incorporate three moons into it, but the pieces just wouldn't cooperate and I ruined two of them trying to punch new holes and so finally gave up. I ended up calling the necklace "Waxing and Waning" since that name seemed to fit it best.

There are black and clear beads and pewter spacers to match the pendant, which has black and clear rhinestones. The back has a lobster claw clasp, also unlike a traditional hemp necklace, which was usually buttoned or tied on. I think it turned out to be adorable, and I'm sure some hippie wannabe (like me) out there will love it as much as I do. Besides, it's retro!
|Sweet, simple, and timeless.|
The necklace is adjustable between 16" and 19", making it suitable for children or adults, and it can be worn as a choker or a longer necklace depending on the individual. I think it would make a nice gift!
That's all... but new updates soon! (I promise!)
