Meeting of Earth and Sky ~ REVERSIBLE Bear Claw Pendant
This magical hand-crafted bear claw talisman tells a story about the Balance between the Masculine and Feminine, the Elements of Sun, Sky, Earth, and Water, and the Healing of the Sacred Circle of Life. As those close to me and my work know, I don’t usually set off to make a piece with everything all planned out. Its a process of unfolding. And just as this amazing pendant started with only a wild natural nugget of turquoise, it evolved into what it is and shares its poetry of energetic potency. Here’s a little of my interpretation:
Turquoise, one of the oldest recorded jewelry gemstones, is considered a Sky Stone, Here I have accented this cloud-like natural nugget with a silver leave and hung a pair of shells carved of turquoise to celebrate the connection of there Sky, the Ocean and the Sacred Waters of life and related cycles. In the center, the bear claw talisman, there is a medicine wheel which represents the great circle of life, the 4 scared directions, and the balance of the elements. The significance of the bear claw and the medicine wheel together is a prayer for the healing of the sacred hoop. Heart healing. Deep Dreaming. Touching all Life.
The Reversible side of the pendant is an illustration of the balance of Fire and Water, Sun and Moon, Masculine and Feminine. There is the Sunstone, radiating light to the waters below, represented by the blue-green opals. Ilove how both of these minerals reflect and hold the light within them. Opals actually have water inside them that create the rainbows of color. Sunstone has incredible golden shards of light.
The symbolism in this piece is foundational in the indigenous medicine ways. I trust it will continue share its secrets and be a very precious power object for its keeper. It can be worn by man or woman. Neck-ring or chains sold separately. Please contact me if you’d like to see this piece in live streaming video for further detail and sizing. Thank you!
