Comet over the Underworld.


Blood Milk Jewels

Comet over the Underworld.


Designed in homage to Persephone, Goddess of the Underworld, this strand is meant to be a comfort or companion to those moving between - between worlds, between emotions, between people & places. For those who feel they don't belong anywhere...

Created as a sister strand to our beloved Halley's Comet strand, I imagine this as a comet searing over the "sky" of the Underworld. 

This strand is composed of smooth round and star cut onyx, as well as sterling silver 'pearls' and spinel. 


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.


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. 

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. 

Every bead has been hand selected for its quality. 


This strand measures approximately 55.5 inches long from end to end. This serpentine length adds a versatility to the strand; its light weight as well as its repetition of the beads allows for a tactile experience for those who use these strands in ritual, mourning, meditation or other grounding practices that can aid the wearer return to their body in moments of anxiety or other discomforting emotions. 

*Pay extra care and be mindful if you intend to wear this strand at its full length without doubling it up.*

At its closure is our smaller Pomegranate Clasp cast in sterling silver. A sister to our Dollhouse Pomegranate pendant, this clasp is delicate in size & tactile in nature making it easily held between the tips of your fingers and rubbed for comfort in times of grief, anxiety, dissociation, as well as during moments of joy and wonder. 

Pomegranates are a sacred symbol to me as they are sacred to Persephone, Goddess of the Underworld. Similar to how Eve was doomed the moment she bit from the apple, Persephone’s fate was sealed the moment she ate from the pomegranate, a few seeds bound her to the land of the dead and she became part of it, she belonged to it. This idea is used throughout other tales and narratives, eating the food of chthonic or otherworldly places binds you to them. A symbol of belonging. 



This strand is handmade to order, just for you, with care and focus. Please allow approximately 6 weeks for creation before shipping.
