Named for a turbulent and creatively fertile time in history, this long strand of Onyx mourning beads was made for comfort and protection during this turbulent time in our history. This strand was based off a traditional mourning strand in my collection, both in bead shape and length. Its length immediately reminded me of the Jazz era, and the extra long strands worn by flappers. I thought of a Surrealist artists wearing these in 1929 ( the year Dali met Gala) in a small Paris cafe with a sketch book open in her lap.

This strand measures 61 inches long from end to end, at its closure, is a 26 mm double sided eye talisman for extra psychic protection that can be worn at the back of the neck or on the front of the body.  

This 'Opera Length' makes it perfect for wearing doubled ( or tripled )  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. Also perfect to use for meditation or ritual practices. 

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