This piece was made for Brighid during one of my shifts tending Her flame. I chose the honey-colored marquis-shaped glass focal bead because it reminded me of a candle’s flame. The gemstones — sunstone, citrine and carnelian — were included because they are associated with Her fire and sun goddess aspects, as well as their tendency to offer healing and creative energy. Sunstone, in particular, is sacred to Her.
Other materials include copper accent beads, shimmery clear Preciosa Czech glass seed beads and a pair of yellow glass crystals which match the focal. The crimps and lobster clasp are bronze-finished. Everything is strung on sturdy nylon-coated 49-strand steel wire.
The length of this piece is approximately 23.25″.
