This strand was created with lunar intent with 12 faceted onyx beads as a repeated pattern, representative of the phases of the moon. It is akin to our ‘Lilith’ strand in construction and design: it’s slimmer and lighter than the majority of our 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 45 inches long from end to end. At its closure is our smaller, double sided, textured full moon clasp in sterling silver, hand oxidized and finished to achieve our signature shade of stormy gray. A tiny moon of your own to wear, to carry, to run your fingers over in times of worry or wonder. 

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.
