8 of Swords. Sterling tarot necklace.

$200.00

Cast in immortal silver, a flaming sacred heart is pierced by a detailed sword. Suspended by a 7 of sorrows rosary connector, the piece mixes two spiritual traditions; the intense grief of the Virgin Mary as well as the metaphor of the 8 of Swords tarot card, (my absolute favorite in the deck).

In the card a raven haired lady is bound at the arms and blinded folded, surrounded by a ring of 8 swords. However bleak this may seem, the swords don't completely encircle her, and she's able to walk away. This card represents breaking through barriers, overcoming difficult times.

This necklace is highly detailed and hand waxes together with different antique and vintage components, creating a new whole, much in the surrealist vein of 'objective chance' in which seemingly unrelated items were bound, and created a new image.

The chain is a sterling flattened oval bar link chain and measures 30 inches total. With the hearts it measures 17 inches long on each side. This length can be adjusted shorter at no extra cost. Convo me for prices regarding additional length.

The heart with sword is nearly two inches wide and 1 1/2 inches long.
