Long Night Moon
When I decided that I wanted to make a collection for the last full moon of the year, I had to contemplate what that meant to me. 2021 has been a year of incredible difficulty and pain. I tend to hold on to things, not because I hold a grudge, but because I file it, shelve it, and forget about it until some benign thing triggers a trauma response within me. The last full moon of the year is supposed to represent a time of healing and letting go of things that burden us. An attempt to enter the New Year with an open heart and mind. All of the strand have the same intention for this little series. I chose to use the various names given to this moon and create strands to represent them.
I hope that if you bring one of these strand home you find the time to reflect and know yourself better. I hope you are able to be present with your emotions as you navigate through them. Just like the cycles of the moon, every things has an ebb and flow. The last full moon of the year is also within days of the winter solstice, the longest nights of the year I hope these serve as bright and warming lights to you during the darkest time of year.
This strand is finished with a sterling silver crescent moon and is 30" in length.
Silver Sheen Obsidian is associated with lunar energy and is said to be ideal for gazing; giving the ability to see oneself as we are… even if it isn’t necessarily a reflection we like. In this way we can better understand ourselves and “do the work”.
Grey Moonstone (The New Moon stone) is a powerful stone that has all the properties of moonstone and magnifies intention. When seeking to understand and reflect on one’s self, this stone is thought to help the wearer see into the void and bringing forth potential.
Sterling Silver is thought to amplify the energy of the moon. It is also the metal of emotion, protection, and healing. Just as the moon reflect the sun, these silver beads will aid in reflecting negative energies from the wearer.
