Persephone's Winter Dreams - daughter of Demeter, symbol of spring, consort of Hades, queen of the underworld, Persephone divided her existence between a world whirling with life and one frozen in death. Surely, she dreamed her winter months away, seeing in her mind's eye flowers blossom as she stepped up onto the earth's surface...
This necklace evokes the beauty and longing of the dream symbol. A large 18mm red sponge coral orb is linked to a gorgeous 36 carat natural (not glass, not lab-grown, not hydrothermal) crystal quartz teardrop by elements of spring not yet come -- an antiqued blossom holding the teardrop, stylized flowers cupping the onyx...a small faceted quartz rondelle and granulated elements of antiqued sterling silver crown the pendant. Wired onto a self-forming bail, the pendant hangs from a faceted box chain of sterling silver.
The chain measures 18" in length; the pendant falls just over 3" from the chain. This evocative piece ships in a gift box.
