Those who have read Dion Fortune's "The Sea Priestess", widely considered to be the finest mystical novel ever written, will remember her vivid characterization of the reincarnated Atlantean Priestess of the Sea: Vivian Lilith LeFay Morgan. This one-of-a-kind pair of earrings was inspired by that remarkable priestess, and is the latest in my Sea Priestess series.
I developed my Sea Priestess collection 20 years ago, all based on Lady Morgan's extensive collection of clothing and jewelry that reflected her devotion to the sea. When I introduced it on the Internet in the late 1990s, it seemed to take on a life of its own with other designers at quite astonishing speed. Some newer designers now base their entire collection around this theme and/or title of the Sea Priestess. Lady Morgan may be smiling somewhere..........
These earrings feature the colors and a gemstone she would have loved. The focal points are gorgeous 15-16mm. slices of natural solar quartz in a range of blue shades. They are left pebbled at the edges to show their natural beauty. No two solar quartz pendants will ever be the same. The smaller beads are 6mm. faceted blue agate, in a blue and white pattern that complements the geodes, and looks like a blue sea flecked with white foam.
The earrings hang from sterling silver French hooks, and worked on sterling pins with a beaded design. They measure 2 & 1/8" total, and include rubber stoppers for security.
The back of one of the geodes is lower than the front. This is part of the natural and irregular formation of the stone. I've included closeups of the backs.
Medieval knights often wore this motto for their chosen Ladies: "Vous et Neul Autre" (you and no other). Only you will wear these, my Lady, you and no other. I love to imagine the celebrated - and unique - Sea Priestess herself wearing them.
All metals are sterling silver and sterling silver-filled, and all gems are genuine.
