The night hair of 'her kind' trapped in crystal - a talisman of wildness, freedom, and night rides - light by light, flame by flame, 

 

Her Kind

I have gone out, a possessed witch,   
haunting the black air, braver at night;   
dreaming evil, I have done my hitch   
over the plain houses, light by light:   
lonely thing, twelve-fingered, out of mind.   
A woman like that is not a woman, quite.   
I have been her kind.

I have found the warm caves in the woods,   
filled them with skillets, carvings, shelves,   
closets, silks, innumerable goods;
fixed the suppers for the worms and the elves:   
whining, rearranging the disaligned.
A woman like that is misunderstood.
I have been her kind.

I have ridden in your cart, driver,
waved my nude arms at villages going by,   
learning the last bright routes, survivor   
where your flames still bite my thigh
and my ribs crack where your wheels wind.   
A woman like that is not ashamed to die.   
I have been her kind.

~ Anne Sexton

Tourmaline Quartz is a variety of clear quartz with naturally occurring needle-like inclusions of black tourmaline. The magic of each stone are found in these beads. 

Quartz is a considered the 'Master Healer, and is known for its propensity to improve memory and bring clarity to the consciousness. In this way, it is also a helpful tool in meditation. 

Black Tourmaline is well known for its supreme protection qualities acting as psychic armor against negativity and psychic attacks. 

This special quartz varies from clear to cloudy and the black tourmaline strands can be minimal to very heavy. 

This strand measures 43 inches long from end to end. At its closure is a double sided, 23mm textured full moon in sterling silver, hand oxidized and finished to achieve our signature shade of stormy gray. A tiny moon of your own to wear, to carry, to run your fingers over in times of worry or wonder.  

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

 ***IMPORTANT***:

This strand is VERY limited based on the small amount of high quality Tourmaline Quartz spheres we were able to source in Tucson this past winter. We can not anticipate whether or not this particular style will be available again after this release. 

This strand is handmade to order, just for you, with care and focus. Please allow approximately 4 weeks for its creation before shipping.
