 A delicate strand of light catching black spinel and onyx "pomegranate seeds" for feeling grounded and rooted - for planting new ideas, for growing your own place of belonging. 

This strand is composed of glossy black onyx spheres and sparkling spinel. It measures approximately 53 inches long from end to end, including clasp.

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. 

 

Onyx:

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:

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.

Every bead is hand selected for its beauty.
