This ritual bead strand is made in homage to The High Priestess tarot card:The most beautiful moonstone sphere beads I’ve encountered are hand strung alongside hollow silver spheres and reveal a pattern similar to our archived ‘Milk-Eyed Seer’ strand.

This strand was made with the intent of its wearer to connect more deeply with the invitation of The High Priestess to journey inward. She is the still Sphinx, the being who sits at the crossroads of consciousness and unconsciousness, guarding and keeping the ‘veil; the mysteries and secret knowledge of our innermost selves. She invites us to sit with our shadow, to be in deeper relationship with our intuition and creativity. She invites us to incubate, to be still, to realize our capacity for expansion.

Moonstone is a sacred and ancient gemstone often associated with The High Priestess as its considered ( along with Pearl ) to be the center sphere of her crown. Silver, known for retaining memory is associated with the moon alongside both Moonstone and The High Priestess. Here, their marriage within the patterns of the strand adds an additional potency for intuitive journeying.

Moonstone 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. It is also a great tool for meditation and clairvoyance, & has been used in jewelry since ancient times for both its unique beauty and magic. As a romantic stone: moonstone is thought to keep the passion alive between lovers when one gives it to another, especially during a full moon.

Please note that Moonstone is a natural stone, clarity and color will vary from stone to stone. Moonstone often has a milky appearance as well as natural inclusions within the stone. The flash will contain shades of blue, violet or teal, and occasionally a dark gold

This strand measures 40 inches long from end to end. At its closure our largest, double sided eye talisman adds an additional layer of psychic protection. This eye can be positioned at the back of the neck or on the front of the body.  

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 perfect to use for meditation or ritual practices.
