Oh, my! If Lion is your totem animal, I hope this beautiful necklace speaks to you. A gorgeous brass lion head pendant is suspended from a necklace of black pearls, separated by brass spacers. The piece is 23-1/2 inches around, with a pendant drop of 1-3/8 inches, and the closure is an antiqued brass filigree leaf hook clasp, so lovely that it deserved its own photograph.
The black pearls include 10mm shell pearls and 8mm Swarovski glass pearls. The brass accompaniments include 6mm bead caps and 4mm spacers.
Here is what Ted Andrews has to say about the lion totem (paraphrased) in his book, "Animal-Speak":
The lion has been symbolic of a variety of energies through the years. It is a symbol of the sun and of gold. If a lion has shown up as a totem, you can expect lessons and issues dealing with community and groups to surface. There may be a need to examine your own role in the group.
Since the females of the pride do most of the work, it actually reflects the idea of the rising of the feminine energies. When a lion has shown up, there will be opportunity to awaken to a new sun. Trust your feminine energies--creativity, intuition and imagination. These will add new sunshine to your life. And don't be afraid to roar if you feel threatened or intruded upon!
