Moon Tusk Pendant - Oxidized Brass on Afghani Turquoise Strand
There's something ancient and mysterious about this piece...
As I rolled out a snake in PMC, I curved it around into a crescent and let it dry a bit. Then, as I applied pressure with a thick piece of glass, I watched the surface crack and change and this shape just evolved into place, from a crescent moon, to more of a double tusk, and Jase keeps calling it a tusk, so that's what I see now... There's something both ethereal and animal-like about it. A perfect statement pendant!
For thousands of years, Turquoise has spanned all cultures, prized as a symbol of wisdom, nobility and the power of immortality. Among the Ancient Egyptians, Persians and Chinese, Aztecs and Incas of South America, and Native North Americans, Turquoise was sacred in its adornment and for power, luck, and protection. It strengthens the meridians of the body and the subtle energy fields, enhancing communication between the physical and spiritual worlds. Placed on the Third Eye, it supports intuition and meditation. On the throat chakra, it releases old vows, inhibitions, and allows the soul to express itself once more.
Oxidized Brass Medallion is 2" wide x 2" tall and is suspended on a 16" Afghani Turquoise strand.
