Moon Before Yule
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 23" in length.
Moonstone is thought to promote reflection, inner growth, intuition, and healing. It’s often associated with new beginnings.
Pearls are thought to promote balance and to center the wearer. They also provide wisdom with the cycles or ebb and flow of life.
Crackled Clear Quartz like clear quartz is thought to assist with healing and spiritual growth, but it is thought to encourage balance as well as working as an amplifier for other stones around them.
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.
