This new collection of strands were designed (and will be released ) during Venus’ retrograde in the sign of Scorpio. An intense time for highly sensitive people and others whose intuitive energies are celestially linked, this strand was created with lunar intent (12 faceted onyx beads are a repeated pattern, representative of the phases of the moon ). This strand is akin to our ‘Lilith’ strand in construction and design: it’s slimmer and lighter than most of our other beaded designs and is partially made with salvaged materials: tiny black beads, over 100 years old, saved from a disintegrated mourning garment from the Victorian era. Cradled between these beads is a 13mm by 18mm coffin cut onyx stone.

The coffin added to this strand represents a place to 'bury' our shadowy emotions, memories and past experiences, creating a talisman to help carry these griefs and anxieties for us without annihilating them.

This strand measures 43 inches long from end to end. At its closure, our medium, 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.

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.

***IMPORTANT***:

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