What would Frankie Bergstein wear?
Undine Dreams ARTifact Necklace #13
All seashells used to create this art to wear were found on my many excursions to Winter Island in Salem MA, Plum Isalnd and Sandy Point Beach in Ipswich MA.
This statement piece was handcrafted with eco-friendly paper clay painted in sea green, blue, pink and purple tones with a touch of gold leaf. It has an embedded shard of pottery found on Derby Wharf, Salem MA along with semiprecious Lapis Lazuli chips, a small Labradorite chip, volcanic rock, a European Oyster seashell, Fairy Snail shell and rhinestones.
The shard of pottery is very old. You can still see the writing on it. Salem MA was one of the first seaports in the USA bringing in pottery and china goods from the Far East and China. During the right time of day and tides, one can find ancient pottery and shards of China on most of the beaches in Salem.
A semiprecious pink Rose Quartz is wire wrapped with a faceted Aurora Borealis glass crystal bead at the top.
I crocheted strands of shimmering silk threads of sea blue, peridot green, pink and gold which measures about 36 inches long. This cord can be tied to the length desired when wearing.
On the back of the pendant is a message that reads "i believe in magic".
All semiprecious stones, crystals, seashells and driftwood are saged, cleared and charged with Reiki.
Rose Quartz is known as the stone of love - all types of love! Unconditional love, romantic love, spiritual love, self-love, family love, love of mankind and Angelic love. It is known to calm the mind and relief stress. Wearing Rose Quartz is like taking an ethereal bubble bath. It is also said to be a stone of fertility.
Lapis Lazuli is a gorgeous blue stone known as a good fortune stone used to manifest prosperity. Used by the ancient Egyptians to connect to the spirit world, and for eye make-up! Opens the Third Eye Chakra and helps bridge the spiritual world with the physical. Excellent to meditate with.
Labradorite is a magical stone that is said to can awaken mystical, or psychic abilities. It helps to clear the aura and protect from negatively. Inuit peoples claim Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis which may explain the ethereal hues of this stone. This stone of enchantment is said to bring on serendipity when worn. Also used to connect with the Angelic and Spirit Realms.
Oyster prefers to stay put for much of its life. They symbolize the need to be still, peaceful, meditate and serenity. Many cultures revere the oyster as an aphrodisiac since Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love was born from the foam of the sea. Classical paintings depict her birth on top of a seashell. Oysters also give birth to pearls which are associated with lunar forces, the moon and tides.
Snail seashells are considered a symbol of rebirth and transition. Their whirled shape of a shell represents the circle of life and the tides of the moon. Because snails have shells, it they also remind us of boundaries and to protect ourselves. Snail shells are the perfect example of Sacred Geometry.
