The horned moon. The sickle moon. Pulling on the sea with invisible spider silk hooks. Snared closer. a double image of ensnarement.
I love this necklace. It speaks to both my love of the moon & her phases, and my obsession with owl claws / talons.
Small owl talons have been reassigned and sculpted into three adjoining horned moon shapes, echoing both the lunar phases as well as the triple goddess aspect, and slightly mimicking the beautiful repetition of native breast plate jewelry.
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.
The moons measure 3 inches long on a 30 inch bar link chain (from end to end).
All the sterling has been hand oxidized to achieve my obsessive shade of gloomy gray.
