Review Now! Gold Filled Seven Pointed Star Pendant By AngelicTears

Seven pointed star pendant

This beautiful handcrafted seven pointed star pendant is made with gold filled wire and light green crackled glass beads. It is double sided meaning that the seven pointed star can be seen on both sides. Each pendant that Bonita Jordan makes is unique, not one pendent will be the same. Bonita always prays over her items and prays while making them!

Meaning of the Seven Pointed Star:

Seven Pointed Star

The seven-pointed star (or, alternately, septagram or heptagram) has accumulated many levels of meaning over the centuries. One of the oldest recorded meanings given to this star may be found within Kabbalistic tradition, where it represents the sphere of Venus and the power of love. It is also found within Christian tradition as a symbol of protection, the seven points representing the perfection of God and the seven days of creation. This resonance with the days of the week carries through into its use as a planetary symbol, as each point not only represents one of the traditional “seven wandering stars,” but also the corresponding days of the week” This information was found at http://www.llewellyn.com/journal/article/2320

What Does Gold Filled Mean?

Gold filled

Gold filled means that it is a base metal, that is covered by a thin layer of gold. Gold has some unique properties that I will list below.

Properties of Gold:

Raw Gold

Gold is the metal of the Divine Father energy. It is associated with the sun, with fire, with the life force in its creative mode, and with male energy. It is a metal of the outer self, the sunlit personality. Gold is the metal which most easily conducts electricity, and is also the best suited to be an all-purpose conductor of the subtle energies and stones.

Spiritual: Gold activates the base through the third chakras, allowing one to joyfully interact with the physical realm. It carries energies of the Sun, stimulating one’s will to grow and stretch beyond ones current experience.

Emotional: Gold can be stimulating to the emotional body, assisting one in overcoming emotional paralysis and fear. It can help one move through difficult circumstances.

Quality and Craftsmanship:

The quality and craftsmanship of this pendant is superb – it is very sturdy and beautifully made. It will fit on any size chain. The crackled glass beads give a fun and whimsical look! The gold filled wire is durable and hard so when you press on the star it does not give way.

Personal Opinion:

Personally, I love this pendant! I was stunned when I saw this beautiful pendant, being made with gold filled wire it gives this unique pendant an amazing look. I always look for symbolism and meaning to my jewelry and this pendant has a lot – the gold and the star! Bonita Jordan makes outstanding jewelry, the way she prays while making each piece amazes me. I can really feel the love and light she weaves into them. I highly recommend this pendant to anyone who is looking for a superb seven pointed star pendant!

moon

The moon has many different symbolism. The moon is a symbol of rebirth. The crescent moon is a symbol of new beginnings; the moon goes from waxing crescent to whole, from whole to waning crescent and from waning crescent to dark – starting its cycle over again. The moon is also a symbol that Wiccans use to represent the three aspects of the Goddess the whole represents the mother aspect, the waxing crescent represents the maiden aspect and the waning crescent represents the crone aspect.

 

 

Symbolic Meaning of the Pentacle:

Pentacle

The pentacle, also known as the pentagram: The pentacle has five points, the top representing the spirit the other four representing the four elements; earth, air, fire, and water. The number five has always been regarded as mystical or magical. We commonly note the five senses – sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. We have five stages to life; birth, childhood, adolescence, parenthood, and death. The number five is also associated with the planet Mars which signifies severity, conflict, and harmony through conflict. In Christianity five represents the five wounds of Christ on the cross. In the Muslim faith there are five pillars and five daily times of prayer. The pentacle has been believed to be a potent symbol of protection against evil, a symbol of conflict that shields the wearer and the home. The pentagram has five spiked wards and a womb shaped defensive, protective pentagon in the center.

 

Symbolic Meaning of the Raven:

Raven

There is no exact definition for any symbol; each symbol is open to interpretation and birds are no exception to this. Their symbolism can vary greatly depending on different cultures and religion. The Raven is generally thought to be a symbol of sadness, loss and death in most European countries. However, the Raven bird has a completely different symbolic meaning in other cultures; the ancient Greeks believed that the raven was a messenger bird of the god Apollo and the Inuit’s (Eskimo’s) have a creator god called the Raven Father. The Raven is large black bird with a straight bill and long wedge-shaped tail. They are scavengers and often feed off the eggs in other birds nests. Ravens are opportunistic feeders and will live near roads in order to feed off road kill and discarded food.”

Symbolic Meaning of the Triskele:

spiral

The triskele, or triple spiral, a symbol closely related to the triquetra, is a tripartite symbol composed of three interlocked spirals

The triple spiral is an ancient Celtic symbol related to the sun, afterlife and reincarnation. The example above comes from the Neolithic “tomb” at Newgrange, where it is supposed by some to be a symbol of pregnancy (the sun describes a spiral in its movements every three months; a triple spiral represents nine months), an idea reinforced by the womb like nature of the structure. The symbol also suggests reincarnation- it is drawn in one continuous line, suggesting a continuous movement of time.

Triskeles are one of the most common elements of Celtic art; they are found in a variety of styles in both ancient and modern Celtic art, especially in relation to depictions of the Mother Goddess. They also evoke the Celtic concept of the domains of material existence- earth, water, and sky, and their interrelations.” This information has been obtained at http://symboldictionary.net/?p=11

 

About Bronze:

Plain Bronze

An alloy of copper and tin. Copper, the supreme conductor, is a potent connecting agent. It is a significant conduit for uniting with the realms of romantic love, groundedness, balance communication and attracting health, wealth, and wish fulfillment. Tin balances, transforming setbacks to a positive energy. Combined, the effect is synergistic—the whole being greater than the sum of the parts. Physical contact with this alloy brings physical, mental and spiritual balance.

Personal Opinion:

This pendant has so much symbolism in it which is why I love it! I like jewelry that has symbolism in it and this piece has more than one! The crescent moon, pentacle, raven, and triskele. The triskele is hidden more than the other symbols though, and that’s what makes it unique and beautiful. If you look closely at the wings of the raven you will see the triskele. Dyad designs is an amazing place to get jewelry, it’s by far one of my favorite shops! The raven has always fascinated me, with how mysterious it is and the symbolism to it. I recommend this pendant to anyone who enjoys jewelry with symbolism.

This handcrafted tree of life pendant, is beautifully and uniquely made with love, light and prayer. Each detail is amazingly perfect. Made with sterling silver wire and turquoise chips, this pendant is durable and great to wear on any size chain! A great gift for any occasion, and all ages.

 

Meaning of the Tree of Life:
tree of life photo

The Tree of Life in its various forms is recognized in all cultures as a symbol of immortality and eternal life. From ancient Chinese and Egyptian culture to Germanic paganism and Mesoamerica, it has been sought after throughout the ages. And, while depicted in many different contexts, the imagery across all cultures is essentially the same. Not to be confused with the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, the tree of Life is the tree whose fruit gives eternal life to all who might obtain it. In addition to its religious references, it is a reminder of our past (roots – ancestry), present (tree body – knots included) and future (fruit – labor and posterity).

The Assyrian Tree of Life was represented by a series of nodes and criss-crossing lines and was an important religious symbol, attended to by eagle-headed gods and priests, or the king himself. In Chinese mythology, a carving of the Tree of Life depicts a phoenix and a dragon – the dragon representing immortality. There is also a Taoist story of a tree that produces a peach every three thousand years; the person who eats the fruit receives immortality.

In Egyptian mythology, Isis and Osiris are the first couple, said to have emerged from the acacia tree of Saosis, which the Egyptians considered the Tree of Life. The Egyptians Holy Sycamore also stood on the threshold of life and death, connecting the two worlds. In Norse religion, the Tree of Life appears as Yggdrasil, a massive yew or ash surrounded by extensive lore. Other examples include Thor’s Oak and the sacred tree at Uppsala.

The Hebrew Bible reference theTree of Life in the Book of Genesis, in which the fruit of the tree give Adam and Eve Eternal Life. It is important to distinguish between this, the Tree of Life, which fruit they were allowed to “freely eat” and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, which was forbidden. Once they had partaken of the forbidden fruit, God set angels and a flaming sword “to guard the way of the Tree of Life, lest Adam should stretch forth his hand and partake of the fruit thereof and live forever in his sins”.

The Book of Mormon gives a detailed account of the prophet Lehi’s dream, in which the Tree of Life is a manifestation of God’s love for all mankind. The fruit of the tree represents Immortality and Eternal Life, which Lehi desires for himself and for his family, and the account explains the difficulties and rewards associated in obtaining it. Depictions of world trees are also found in Mesoamerican cultures, including the Maya, Aztec, Izapan, Mixtec, Olmec and others, relating to calendars, seasons and a representation of the Milky Way.” This information was obtained at http://www.treeoflife.net.au/Tree-of-Life-Meaning-Symbolism-of-the-Tree-Of-Life.html

Review Now! Sterling Silver Moldavite Moon Pentacle Pentagram Pendant by Dryad Designs

Moldivite necklace

 

Dryad Designs has created a truly beautiful moon pentacle pendant which has lots of detail. This pendant has many different symbols; the pentacle, the moon, the Celtic knots and swirls, the piece of Moldavite in the center and the writing around the pendant “I am the beauty of the green earth and the white moon among the stars”.

Symbolic Meaning of the Crescent Moon:

crecent moon

 

The moon has many different symbolisms. The moon is a symbol of rebirth. The crescent moon is a symbol of new beginnings; the moon goes from waxing crescent to whole, from whole to waning crescent and from waning crescent to dark – starting its cycle over again. The moon is also a symbol that Wiccans use to represent the three aspects of the Goddess the whole represents the mother aspect, the waxing crescent represents the maiden aspect and the waning crescent represents the crone aspect.

Symbolic Meaning of the Pentacle:

 

pentacle

“Many people today misunderstand the true meanings attached to the pentacle (a.k.a the pentagram).  In today’s world  most people fail to research the meanings behind symbols before passing judgment upon those who choose to wear them. As someone who has always been interested in the meaning of symbols within world religions I have decide to share my research in order to help promote understanding. The pentacle/pentagram is perhaps one of the most misunderstood symbols in human history. This ancient symbol has been used by Christians, Jews and Wiccans as a positive symbol of light and love.  The pentagram in its upright position has always been viewed as a symbol of light.  Many people do not realize that  it wasn’t until the 1800’s that the inverted pentagram (the upside down star) began to be associated with darkness. The media is quick to only notice those use who view this symbol as something of darkness, yet they forget to mention the positive meanings of the pentagram that are held by Christians, Jews and Wiccans. Lets take a look at the meanings that each group associates with this symbol and you decided for yourself.

 

History:

The pentagram (or pentacle as it is known when not written or drawn) is one of the most persistent symbols in human history. It is one of oldest symbols dating back to the time of Uruk of 3500 BC in Ur of the Chaldees in Ancient Mesopotamia. The pentagram is found in many ancient cultures including India, China, Greece, Egypt, Babylon and the Mayans of Central America. Each culture has its own symbolism attached to the five points of the pentagram.

 

WICCA SYMBOLISM: OTHER:

As the primary symbol used by Wiccans and other Neo-Pagans, the pentagram also represents aspects of their faith. To some, the pentagram represents the spiritual aspects of life and seeking secret knowledge. To others the five points symbolize the four directions of north, south, east and west with the fifth point representing sanctity of spirit. When within a circle, the star symbolizes wholeness, unity and divine knowledge.

 

WICCA SYMBOLISM: THE ELEMENTS:

In Wicca, the five points represent the five elements and their metaphysical aspects. The element of earth represents physical endurance and stability and is the symbol of the lower left point. The lower right point is symbolic of fire, which represents courage. The element of water represents intuition and emotion and is the meaning of the upper right point. The upper left point symbolizes air and represents intelligence. The fifth point is symbolic of the element of spirit, and represents the divine. The meaning is basically similar to the old saying “mind over matter,” which means the ability of one’s spirit to control the lower aspects of our being.

 

CHRISTIAN SYMBOLISM:

In antiquity Christians viewed the pentagram as a lesser-used symbol of their faith. The five points of the pentagram represent the five wounds of Christ. Early Christians also attributed the pentagram as a symbol of the Trinity with the two other points representing the two natures of Christ. It also symbolizes truth, the work of the Creator, the five joys of the Virgin Mary, the Alpha and the Omega and the five virtues of generosity, fellowship, purity, courtesy and mercy. To knights it represented the five knightly virtues of generosity, courtesy, chastity, chivalry and piety.

 

JEWISH SYMBOLISM:

In antiquity the Hebrews viewed the pentagram as a symbol of divine truth. The five points were ascribed to the five books of the Pentateuch and to truth found in Hebrew scriptures of the Torah. In the Jewish Kabbalistic tradition, the points represent the archetypal forces of justice, mercy, wisdom, understanding and transcendent splendor.

 

SATANIC SYMBOLISM:

In Satanism, the inverted pentagram represents the physical elements of earth, fire, air and water dominating the spiritual aspects of life. It also represents the goat’s head of Baphomet. The inverted pentagram as a symbol for Satan or the devil did not appear until the 19th century.

 

In Conclusion:

Don’t judge a book by its cover. What may seem like a worthless book may hold the keys to learning more about the world around you. Always ask questions and never judge people for what they wear. The person you mistakenly judge may have a heart of gold. It’s time to stop being afraid of wearing this religious symbols. Wear it and joyfully share your faith when asked (even if the person asking is unkind due to their own ignorance).”

About Moldavite:

 

Moldavite stone

Attributes: Moldavite is another of the stones for the New Age. It is a form of Tektite, said to have extraterrestrial origin, formed when a giant meteorite struck the earth. The heart of impact metamorphosed surrounding rocks, creating a ~strew field~ by flinging the resulting crystals over a vast area. Moldavite is therefore a fusion of extraterrestrial energies with mother earth. This is a rare stone. It is now found along the banks and river of Moldau and is unlikely to be found anywhere else in the world. The crystal will become extinct. Moldavite has been used since Stone age times as a talisman and amulet for good fortune and fertility. Many people believe it came to aid in earth’s transition and healing and that the time has come to use Moldavite’s energies wisely. It can greatly enhance the effect of other crystals, taking them to their highest vibration. Moldavite brings you into communication with the higher self and extraterrestrials. Moldavite has it’s own cosmic oversoul*, which  can put you in touch with the Ascended Masters* and cosmic messengers. Holding the stone up to the light and gazing at into it shifts your consciousness. This stone takes you into the highest spiritual dimensions and facilitates the ascension process. It needs to be grounded or else it can leave you spaced-out or rootless. Holding a pair of Bonji stones gently grounds after spiritual experiences with Moldavite, and the energies of clear Quartz stabilizes its effects. Moldavite has an extremely high vibration, which opens, clears blockages from, and aligns the chakras*. It integrates the Divine blueprint and accelerates spiritual growth. Moldavite resonates with the crown chakra, opening it to receive the highest spiritual guidance. Placed on the throat, Moldavite communicates interplanetary messages especially with regards of the state of the ecology of the earth and its need for healing. This is a stone that transcends time. Placed on the third eye*, Moldavite enables you to go forward into the future or back into the past. It facilitates journeys to other lives if this is appropriate. Rather than going back into the past to relive a life, expect to regain spiritual wisdom, or journey to the before -incarnation state to access purpose, Moldavite shows future potentials. Under the influence of Moldavite you can go forward to a future to see the results of actions taken in the present life, or to learn what is needed in the present life to prevent destruction in the future. Moldavite is a useful stone to sensitive people who find it difficult being in incarnation on the earth and cannot adjust to suffering and deep emotions. Many such people are star children* who have come to aid the earth in its time of transition to a new vibration. They are unused to heavy energies of earth and find it difficult to integrate the spiritual bodies into the physical, and need to ground. Moldavite, used in conjunction with grounding stones such as Hematite and Smoky Quartz, aid this process on the heart. Moldavite eases `homesickness` for those who origin is not Earth. Moldavite has no crystalline structure and so it takes you way beyond your limits and boundaries. Psychologically, it assists in developing detachment from mundane, earthbound security issues such ass money and worries for the future. Moldavite provides an overview of reasons for incarnating and connects your spiritual purpose, integrating this into earthly life. It supports qualities such as empathy and compassion. At a mental level, Moldavite in unconventional and inspiring, bringing the unexpected solutions forward. It can awaken latent memories and access spiritual information through the intellect. It releases fixed ideas and archaic belief systems and can neutralize hypnotic commends*. Physically, holding Moldavite may trigger a huge rush of energy through the body that has powerful metaphysical effects it `downloads` information from the Akashic Records* and the light body, which then has to be processed and made conscious. This process may take some time but the process accelerates spiritual growth and the rising of personal vibrations.

Healing: Rather than helping individual conditions, Moldavite makes one aware of the cause and source of dis-ease* and then supports the releasing and healing process. It also brings the gift contained within the illness to your attention. Moldavite can be used as a tool for diagnosis. People who dislike its deep green color often have an aversion to emotion and need to experience unconditional love and wholeness. They may also have hidden emotional trauma that needs to surface and heal, for which other crystals are required.

Position: Place on the forehead, throat or crown . Note: Moldavite is fragile and should not be cleaned with salt water as it scratched the surface.

Color: Dark Green

Appearance: Small, transparent, folded mass, often glossy

Rarity: Rare but readily available, although increasingly expensive as source is used up

About the Writing Around the Pentacle:

saying around the pentacle

 

The words around the pentacle are “I am the beauty of the green earth and the white moon among the stars” is part of Starhawk’s charge of the star Goddess. The charge of the Goddess is an inspirational text that is used mostly by neo-pagans and Wiccans. The charge of the Goddess is a very important text that the high priestess of a coven will read at the end of the ritual “drawing down the moon” This charge is a promise that the Goddess will be with all people. This sacred text is very beautiful and something everyone should read.

The Celtic knots and swirls:

swirls and knots 2

 

Looking at this beautiful pendant, it seems as if the designer mixed several of the different Celtic swirls and knots. This shows the creativity of the designer. The way the knots and swirls flow is beautiful. This designer is very talented in what he does.

Basic Information about This Pendent:

This pendent measures 1 height x 1 width in inches, or 2.54 in height by 2.54 in width in cm. Made of .925 Solid Sterling Silver, this pendent is lightweight and is single sided.

 

 

My Personal Opinion:

Personally I wear this pendant every day I almost never take it off. I wear it on a 24inch chain so it aligns with my heart chakra; I find that it helps that chakra a lot. Personally, I like this pendent because it has so much symbolism, everything from the moon to the small details of the Celtic knots and swirls. This is by far my favorite pentacle that I own. The moldavite stone is very unique and that’s one of the reasons I love this pendant. I was so happy when I saw that I could get a pendant with that stone in it. I recommend this pentacle to anyone who wants a pentacle with a unique stone in it.

“Our hope is to support and inspire earth based spirituality.

Paul and Suzanne

We are devoted to the Pagan religion and see our work as revitalizing the presence of the Goddess in our society. For those who are not Pagan, our pieces often connect them with their spirituality, heritage or ancestors. Each of our pieces are consecrated in circle and dedicated to the service of the divine. Several designs have a portion of their price donated to charitable organization, as our way of trying to give back. We are thankful to the community of Pagans across the country that has supported our efforts.
The imagery for all of Paul’s work begins with ritual and meditation and is followed by extensive research. Paul feels the image is a gift from the Gods and has an etheric life of its own. He holds the image in his mind until he finds the appropriate material. Paul will stare for long periods of time into the material until he can see within the completed piece. Through this process the image and its life force is transferred into the wood or stone. Paul maintains that once the image solidifies in the wood, the carving is quick and easy. The first day is the most exciting for him because everything is potential. His heart pumps with excitement and the thrill of sinking his chisels into wood.”
