VELKOMMEN, borrowed from my grandmother in Colorado (she is from Sweden and this Welcome sign is carved in wood above her front door)
The season and its celebrations are strongly associated with the rich color of purple~ It felt right to pay the season and her goddesses homage withj the naming of this pendant. She is sturdy and illustrious in her own right, a magical token of Earth and all her wonder!
Named after the goddess Brighid, this magical and intricate design is ready to join you on an enchanting adventure! Each Brighid pendant features my signature double coil wreath around a center stone, with an eye set on the bail. The center stone of this piece is a beautiful purple labradorite with a purple amethyst set above her on the bail, this pendant is bold and sturdy, elegant and enchanting in the most earthy ways!
Who is Brighid? There are many spellings to her name, and many legends but I will do my best to summarize! I like to visualize a maiden sitting near a stream in a field of grass, a rich green cloak draping around her while she admires the first little blossoms of spring. There are three sisters all called Brighid, sometimes they stand alone, sometimes they are represented as a singular triple goddess and sometimes even a saint. In essence, Brighid is the Goddess of poetry, magic, wisdom, craft, healing, and protection. Brighid is the protector over women in childbirth which has tied her to watching over the whole hearth, home, and domesticated animals. She goes hand in hand with Imbolc in early February celebrating the half way point from the Winter Solstice and first day of Spring! You may have also seen a Brigid Cross, featuring a woven square at the heart with 4 outstretched arms tied at the ends. It is with great honor to the Goddess and to the Earthly seasons that I create and name my favorite design “Brighid”
Made from solid copper, a dense labor of love to weave. She is sturdy!
Featuring a HUGE High Grade Purple Labradorite with magenta and blue hues
Protecting eye at the top, blue gem, a type of opal I believe
Will fit Baltic Amber and copper chains
