The Dream of Endless Night. Grey Moonstone Strand.

$800.00

Based on The Dream of the Siren’s Scales, this strand references other lines of Blake’s poem ‘ Auguries of Innocence’ :


“To see a World in a Grain of Sand

And Heaven in a Wild Flower 

Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand 

And Eternity in an hour “


Each one of these ancient moonstones carries with it the pressure and heat of its making, the deep sleep of time, the dreams of The Hermit, the dreams of the Hanged One in its cocoon of time. What messages come through while you wear it? What does it feel like to wear Time ? To gaze into each bead that has a world inside it, to hold them and know there is deep time in this strand, the dreams of the Underworld ? Wearing beads connects you to ancestors who wore beads and were buried with them; these were the thoughts I had while stringing this particular strand, as well as what it is like to sleep and have dreams, how strange they can be, how hard it can be to shake them once awake. How strange time still is these days - how it feels like we all have keys to a portal we stepped through and how much I hope this year bears the keys to something different. A new hour. 

 

‘Some are born to sweet delight

Some are born to endless night’

-William Blake


This strand is composed of grey moonstones, and hollow sterling silver 'Pearl' beads that have been hand oxidized and lightly polished. Designed to be worn closer to the neck, this strand measures approximately 22.5 inches long from end to end, including clasp.

These shorter strands feel like a balm to me, when I’m wearing mine I find myself turning them around in my fingers, truly forging a relationship with these crystals. 

At its closure is our smaller, double sided Endless Night clasp cast in sterling silver. At the 'heart' of the strand is our smaller, double sided Endless Night Key. You can find information about the Endless Night Key HERE

As a special, bold statement piece, it also layers beautifully with other BloodMilk necklaces.

 

Grey Moonstone:

Grey moonstone shares many of the same metaphysical properties as the rest of the moonstone family. It is closely tied to the moon, with some cultures believing the stone is solidified moon rays, while others think of them as embodiments of the moon's tears. Acting as a kind of Psychic armor, it is thought to protect its wearer from not only dark nights, but dark times; it helps sooth grief, loss, and other emotional turbulence. 

Moonstone is also known for its powerful psychic abilities. Used to protect empaths & sensitives from absorbing other people's emotions, it is known to be used during meditation for connecting to ones inner selves. As a romantic stone, it is known to strengthen the bonds between lovers when given as gifts, especially during the full moon. 

These beads are medium grey with flashes of glowy silver. 

As a natural stone, clarity and color varies; each bead has been hand selected for its quality.

 

 **IMPORTANT***:

Please note, this strand is limited based on the small quantity of beads we were able to source and we do not know if it will be available again in the future. It will ship in approximately 6 weeks. 

*Length note: Because individual bead measurements vary slightly, total strand lengths are approximate within a few millimeters in either direction. Please reach out via email if you have any questions about this.
