I think I’ve had this necklace listed at my Etsy shop for a while now, and so if it’s not going to sell I’m going to take it apart and use the beads for something else. The listing will be removed on August 1, so if you’ve been contemplating it, now is your last opportunity. Click on any of the pictures to see the listing and/or purchase. Thanks!
Amber and jet is the traditional necklace of a High Priestess of the Craft. This is the perfect gift for the High Priestess in your life; your initiator, your coven leader, or a newly-minted High Priestess friend or lover.
This piece was formed of genuine Baltic and Russian amber in bright orange and organic brown. They are spaced by amber-coloured crackle glass spacer beads, and they feature three vintage faceted Edwardian Whitby jet beads acquired from a friend who deals in antiques. The necklace is strung on premium mono-filament copper beading wire and finished with a sturdy large silvertone lobster clasp for ease of use. It’s slightly off-center because the amber beads are of different sizes, but don’t worry, it stays in place perfectly.
Amber is fossilized tree sap; jet is fossilized charcoal. Together they symbolize the life-and-death principles and according to legend they can produce an electric charge. I don’t know about that, but the magickal charge is pretty awesome!
Most of the available amber out there these days is pressed amber. This is not. Most of the available jet out there is faceted glass. This is not.
