Lunaire Pendant

The Waning Moon


And like a dying lady, lean and pale,

Who totters forth, wrapp’d in a gauzy veil,

Out of her chamber, led by the insane

And feeble wanderings of her fading brain,

The moon arose up in the murky East,

A white and shapeless mass.

While the idea for this pendant was inspired by a picture a friend sent me, I deviated from the model a good bit, first by using an oval cabochon, instead of round, then by substituting the coated black wire used on the model with copper.Reverse side close-up of the Lunaire Pendant

The copper wire is completely naked, therefore you can expect the finish to darken with age.

The feature here is Dendritic Opal, also known as Merlinite. A “stone of duality, of black and white, light and dark, magic, good luck, and dark night of the soul”.Full daylight close-up of the Lunaire Pendant Said to grant the bearer the truest knowledge of self, both good and bad, I suppose it’s appropriate that when looking upon it’s face I see a view from the forest’s edge, across a great gorge to a mountains peak. The journey will be long and arduous, but the rewards are rumoured to be great…

The cab is a large one, at 38 x 45mm; the total pendant size is 1 3/4 x 2″, not including the bail.

I see it suspended from a black satin ribbon, but cord or chain would be equally appealing.
