This is one of my favorite kinds of pieces to make – totally individual and one-of-a-kind and using my knowledge of astrology to customize and personalize a piece of jewelry.
Years ago I used to interpret natal charts – I focused on the gifts and challenges of the native rather than “predictive” astrology which is something I’m not that into – I like the idea of Free Will and how things roll out based upon our choices. Maybe there is some destiny at work, but I am living proof that a leopard CAN actually change their spots, so I don’t go for the whole, “But I can’t help it, I’m a ____” thing some people try to pull.
ANYHOW, this necklace was meant for someone who had a lot of Earth, Fixed and Cardinal signs, and not a lot of Air or Mutable signs, and just a dash of Water. Therefore, I chose stones that would harmonize with a Capricorn, but would also vibrate with the “Air”, “Water”, and “Mutable” energies — fluidity, flexibility, cool head, open to higher guidance, self-love, compassion, equanimity, freer communication – you know, “upper” chakra stuff. I threw in the fairy bells and feather charm as a further representation of Air energy.
I totally love how it turned out, and more importantly, the wearer did too! She even wants a more detailed interpretation of her chart, which I am happy to do.
