The Waning Moon
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.
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”. 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.
