This piece is a hollow form hand-carved disc. It is about the size of a nickel and a quarter inch thick. Instead of using a bell, the chain for this piece runs through the body of the pendant.
One side of the pendant has bevelled edges (craters) in the carvings to cause a rippled surface to refract light, and on the other side, the carvings are flat. This pendant may be worn to show the textured side or the flat side. The photos below show examples of both sides, as well as the thickness of the piece.
I can recreate this pendant to be any size – a larger design could be very dramatic. Of course, this one reminds me of the moon!
The Hindu deity, Lord Shiva, is often depicted as Nataraja or The Lord of Dance, dancing in an arch of flames. The flames represent the manifest universe as well as the transmutation and suffering of the ego on its journey toward attaining salvation. Shiva also holds a flame called agni, which represents destruction in his left hand.
According to wikipedia, the two most common forms of Shiva’s dance are the Lasya (the gentle form of dance), associated with the creation of the world, and the Tandava (the violent and dangerous dance), associated with the destruction of weary worldviews – weary perspectives & lifestyles. In essence, the Lasya and the Tandava are just two aspects of Shiva’s nature; for he destroys in order to create, tearing down to build again.
What in your life needs to dissolve/transmute/burn up in order to make space for creation? This ring serves as a reminder that we don’t need to hang on so tightly; that some things need to go in order for better things to enter our lives.
I decided to design a ring much like my curved bracelets. This ring is approximately half an inch wide and the carving gently catches the light. Like all my rings, the inside edge of the ring is bevelled for a comfortable fit.
I love the moon! The stone in this pendant is a bright creamy green.
This is a hand-carved silver and aventurine crescent moon pendant.
In many philosophies, the moon is considered to have a feminine or “yin” quality. In astrology, the moon represents our emotional nature. Green aventurine helps to balance qualities of the heart chakra, or our “feelings”.
Each moon pendant is one-of-a-kind (as are all of my hand-carved pieces).
