Goddess necklace

About this design:

I have had this lipstick ranch Goddess for a while now, and was a little unsure what to do with it. I picked out all of my gemstones that needed using up and looked up their qualities. The four I had least of were, Magnesite,Howlite, Chrysoprase and Rhyolite. The Magnesite carries peace, visualisation and symbolism. The Howlite is brilliant for reflection and encourages you to discard fierceness. The Chrysoprase supports trust and draws out talents and empowers innovativeness. The Rhyolite lights the imagination of the soul and is a convenient stone for past existence. After reading this, I thought what a great combination for a Goddess! So here it is! I am happy with the result although to start with I was unsure of the colours, but now love them!

    Another winner. In fact, you picked significant colors–moon, sun, earth–that symbolize three aspects of the ancient triple goddess. Great choices!

    Very beautiful, and meaningful!

    As I am reading this I’m thinking of what I can do with my Lipstick Ranch pendant…then I started cracking up because the one I have is the Moose! So not in the same spirit as the goddess choices here! :D
