Medium Talon Moon Necklace: Sterling Silver with Labradorite.

$210.00

A symbiosis of the moon & the magnificent night owl, inspired by my crescent formed from eagle talons, this necklace is made entirely in sterling silver, and hand oxidized to achieve my obsessive shade of stormy gray. Highlighted to reveal the bright luminous silver beneath.

An 8mm fine cut round labradorite is carefully set in-between the talons. Suspended from our signature bar link chain in the length of your choosing.

Steeped in mythology & magic, the crescent is my favorite shape of the lunar phases of the moon. resembling a horned moon, a glowing sickle in the darkness of the night sky. Taking the shape of the moon at the end and the beginning of her journey, it also represents the thinnest part of her revealed during her cycle.

The crescent has also been associated with Diana, goddess of the hunt, the Egyptian goddess Isis as well as the Virgin Mary. The moon is known as feminine, potent energy.

In alchemy, it is associated with silver.

The owl has an interesting, contradictory place in lore. Like many other ominous birds are associated with the spirit realm and with having potent meditative qualities. Here, two smaller owl talons are sculpted to form a crescent moon, conjuring a nighttime aura for the owl is most alive at night.

I'm suggesting a balance of sun and moon energy, as well as an ability to see spiritual truths, both in times of light and dark. As a talisman, this pieces holds the potent energies of both the moon and the owl.  In the tarot, it is associated with the High Priestess, the guardian of the unconscious, and urges you to look inward, with your third eye.

 

Growing up I had a lot of Labradorite jewelry, given to me for their healing properties, in particular for their ability to relieve anxiety & melancholy. It is also said to be used to dispel negativity & fear, acting as a kind of psychic armor to more troubling & turbulent emotions. As a 'sister' to moonstone, Labradorite is often associated with the more "darker" aspects of the Goddess, in her Crone form, full of the experience & wisdom of life and death, associated with the darker moon: waning through new moon phases.

It is also a stone of transformation, and is said to help those with intuitive gifts to awaken and realize their full potential as well as helping enhance creative talents. It also ranks as one of the most protective stones, shielding its wearer from negativity. Much like its 'sister' moonstone, Labradorite has been used and worn in many cultures and tribes for both its incredible natural beauty, and for its potent magical properties.

****Please note that Labradorite is a natural stone so clarity and color will vary from stone to stone. Labradorite has natural lines and inclusions and varies in shades of green (teal, swamp green, olive green) to shades of (dark) blue.

The moon itself measures:

-36mm tall

-32mm wide

-solid sterling silver
