Triple Goddess Lapis Shield Pendant

Triple Goddess Lapis Shield Pendant

Lapis is truly a stone for goddesses. It’s deep blue color has made it a favorite gem going back to Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. Up until the mid 1800s, ground lapis was used as a very expensive and brilliant pigment for oil and egg tempura paintings. Ancient Egyptians believed blue was the color of life because of the life-giving properties of water and the Nile, and they used lapis in glazes for statues, as paint for Kings’ statues and sarcophagi, and for jewelry. The color blue in paintings of the Madonna during the Renaissance represented purity. It also is associated with the creative power of God. In the Hindu philosophy, blue is associated with the Vishuddha (5th) chakra and Ajna (6th) chakra, which both deal with the spiritual planes of existence.

When you wear lapis, you are carrying high energy with a long history.

This pendant is made of hand-hammered silver and lapis. The edges curve forward to reflect the lapis in the middle. It is one of its kind.

Enjoy!

Shiva’s Flame – hand-carved silver ring

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.
