Epona, Beth Hemmila, 2008, fine & sterling silver, citrine, garnet, iolite, and amber
Inspired by a large citrine bead that I had tucked away in my drawer, I designed this necklace featuring some of my favorite gemstones and a Wind Horse charm. Citrine has been known to generate prosperity, and after both my husband and I held this stone, I can attest to the powerful magic emanating from this necklace.
Iolites (vision and curiosity), garnets (purity, truth, love and compassion), and amber (wisdom and healing) also adorn this deliciously colorful necklace. Wow, no wonder I feel light headed when it dangles about my neck. This alchemical cocktail comes with a disclaimer to all who choose to wear it -- handle juju care :)
Near the clasp I attached a tiny, silver charm to honor the Celtic horse goddess Epona. If you wear your hair short or up in a pony tail, Wind Horse will glitter on the back of your neck, a small hint of your free and fertile spirit.
