Ceres Descends Necklace - Ready to Ship
The pendant’s center, a semicircle of glass encases the rich teal of the Peacock Swallowtail Butterfly wing like lush green surface of the earth. Radiating outward, arcs of metal create layers that delve deeper into unknown territories, like the geology of the earth’s core, passageways to the underworld, and celestial spheres above, forming a pleroma of creation: light and dark, seen and unseen, the totality of divinity. Like Ceres, goddess of motherhood and agriculture, descending through the earthly realms in search of Proserpina, this talisman embodies the magic of the earth (and our relationship to it), and the transformative quests we embark on in our lives.
The focal portion measures 1" x 7/8", with a 16.5" long nickel-free gunmetal chain.
As this item is hand-made to order, each element (butterfly wing, feather, snakeskin, skull, etc.) is unique in its own way, and may vary slightly in the finished piece. There may also be a difference in size of up to 1/8". The focal-piece is constructed with lead-free silver solder, oxidized, and polished.

JEWELRY CARE: Please handle this one-of-a-kind jewelry with great care, avoid water and remove before applying lotions. Because of the stained glass medium we work in, we are able to use delicate materials from nature that are very heat-sensitive. Too much heat and the wings change color, sometimes losing the vibrant magic that makes them so special. The metal in our work is an alloy of silver and tin, which melts at a lower temperature than sterling. We 100% stand by our work and have sold thousands of pieces in the eight years we've been in business, with a very small number needing repair. The same way you would take care of a silk blouse, please consider the medium in the treatment of your piece and approach with intention and care.
SHIPPING: Please be sure to read the shipping and policies information before your purchase.
