*Magick of the Forest* Handmade Statement Art Necklace




ABOUT:

This is an enchanted, entirely hand sculpted, one-of-a-kind polymer clay necklace, embellished with Labradorite gemstones, Swarovski crystals and beads, and antiqued brass chain. 

This piece represents Growth, Harmony and Love for Nature.

Labradorite, the Gemstone of Magic, the "Temple of the Stars"

Labradorite has been known for thousands of years and is surrounded by myth. This mystical gemstone said to represent the “temple of the stars”, fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), an ordinary stone that transforms to the extraordinary, shimmering in a mystical light that separates the waking world from unseen realms. It is, in every sense, a Stone of Magic, a crystal of shamans, diviners, healers, and all who travel and embrace the universe seeking knowledge and guidance. For self-discovery, it is excellent for awakening one's own awareness as a soul and it stimulates intuition, telepathy, psychic abilities, and past-life recall.

This magical gemstone, with its iridescent flashes of color, can be very beneficial for all chakras. It is especially useful in the upper chakras including the Throat, Third Eye and Crown chakra.

MATERIALS:

- PREMO polymer clay (an outstanding quality polymer clay that is very strong and durable)
- Labradorite gemstones
- Swarovski crystals and beads
- Antiqued brass chain
- Magick

PROCEDURE:

I carefully sculpted, rolled, formed and shaped by hand every small detail you see on this pendant (including the double braid, for which I used long polymer clay "snakes"), based on my design. I didn't use any molds.

After sculpting/adding details, the necklace was cured in an oven a couple of times to harden, then I added a clear finish to protect the surface of the artwork.

COLORS:

Please note that each color may slightly differ from the photos due to different monitor settings.

SIZE:

Pendant: 

- 105 mm wide, 130 mm tall

Chain:

- total length: 21 inches (including the width of the pendant)

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

Handle with care:

  • Avoid scratching the surface of the jewelry
  • Do not drop the piece. The brand of polymer clay we use is very strong: it is not brittle, not fragile, but make sure you don't bend the delicate parts forcefully. You need to be careful with the Swarovski crystals, beads and labradorite gemstones, as those could break. 
  • Keep the piece away from perfume, hairspray, deodorant, nail polish
  • Use regular jewelry cleaner for the metal parts 
  • Use a soft, moist fabric / damp cloth to gently wipe the surface of the polymer clay. You may also use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean the textured surfaces. 
  • Keep it away from high heat 
  • Take off the piece when showering or swimming (polymer clay itself is waterproof, but the sealer is just water-resistant. A quick wash is not a problem though.
  • Please note that polymer clay has a bit of flexibility to it (that is more prominent in hot weather) that is perfectly normal.
