Blood Milk Jewels

A Thread of Ink.


Sold out

The most subtle design of this collection, this strand is meant to be a glittering line of ink worn close around the body. As a talismanic vessel, think of something you’d like to change, a grief you’d like lessened, a wound you’d like to close up just a little more, a fire in your life you’d like to dampen just slightly, and write it down. Perhaps this little line of ‘ink made from ash’ can be that ‘wish’, that spell made physical. Every time you wear it, perhaps it becomes a touchstone, an object that becomes a companion. It can’t take anything away, but maybe it can remind you that you aren’t alone, that someone else out there is doing the same thing, perhaps at the same time, with the same object. That we are all connected in these tower times. A Séance.

This strand is composed of star cut and smooth round onyx, sparkling spinel, and tiny hollow sterling silver 'Pearl' beads that have been hand oxidized and lightly polished. It measures approximately 33.5 inches long from end to end, including clasp.

This 'Opera Length' makes it perfect for wearing doubled up as well as at its full length. Designed to compliment other Onyx jewels in the Mourning/Ritual bead line it also layers beautifully with other BloodMilk necklaces. Its light weight also makes it perfect to use for meditation or ritual practices. 

At its closure is our smaller, double sided Séance clasp cast in sterling silver. 



Onyx is best known for being a natural stone that acts as a kind of 'psychic armor' against the negativity of others. It is also used to sooth grief and heartbreak. It's a wonderful grounding stone and stone of self mastery, enabling its wearers to have mental and spiritual focus.

These beads are hand cut and therefore may have very slight differences in size and may have small signs of the carver's hands along the edges. These are not fabricated by a machine, they are made by hand and therefore aren't uniformly perfect. The photographs accurately portray the quality of the stones and the cuts. 

Each bead has been hand selected for its quality.



Spinel is a potent stone for healing and protection: working to help clear intense emotions such as anger and rage, it imbues its wearer with a sense of calm. It is also used to heal the physical body and has powerful metaphysical qualities, helping its wearer to feel strong, assisting with perseverance, especially when dealing with issues from the past that have become difficult to overcome. Much like Onyx, it also helps repel negativity from others.



This strand is handmade to order, just for you, with care and focus. Please allow approximately 5 weeks for creation before shipping.          

*Length note: Because individual bead measurements vary slightly, total strand lengths are approximate within a few millimeters in either direction. Please reach out via email if you have any questions about this.
