Talisman for SELF-ACCEPTANCE and COMPASSION.
The blue "stone" is made of slag, a waste product of smelting in which raw ore is heated and the desired iron ore is collected from various impurities. I put stone in quotation marks because the material is closer to glass than it is to stone. When the impurities cool this glass is formed. It is similar to our human selves. Our desired and most attractive qualities are kept and the “impurities” or undesired parts of ourselves, divine and unique, are cast aside. This waste product was collected, cut, and polished reminding us to collect, honor, and care for our "impurities" as well. The oval piece is set in precious metal to give it the reverence it deserves, reminding you to give yourself the same respect. My sincerest hope is that this piece brings you more self-acceptance and compassion to all the lovely parts that are YOU!
The pendant and chain are oxidized sterling silver. The chain measures 20-inches. The pendant measures 1.5 inches across and 1 inch long and is backed with reclaimed Edgewood tobacco tin. A little treat for only you, the wearer.
