New Devotional Necklaces: Life and Death

(I apologize in advance that my blog will have a lot of product posts between now and Many Gods West. I promise there’s thoughtful Vanic content scheduled as well!)

Two new necklaces, for complementary ends of the Great Cycle:

Life

Eostre's Rabbit Necklace

A colorful necklace of flowers, leaves, and a carved quartz rabbit, in honor of Eostre.

Eostre’s Rabbit ($30): Pale green, yellow, amber, and iridescent glass invoke the fresh leaves and flowers of spring. A carved clear quartz rabbit pendant bead representing Eostre’s familiar companion. The clasp is an easy-to-use toggle. Hand strung on strong beading cord, with finished ends. ~24″.

Eostre's Rabbit Necklace

The full necklace is roughly 24 inches around.

This necklace is suitable as a devotional necklace for the Ostara holiday, and goddess[es] who carry the mantle of Spring. It can also be worn as a celebration of rabbits and hares as our animal allies!

As I was stringing this necklace, I couldn’t help but sing the “Winter Wrap Up” song from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Granted, that’s not quite the usual Ostara blessing, but it’s definitely the right vibe! I may well have to write more suitable verses for that song at this rate.

Death

One Kind Favor - Closeup

Hematite and a skeleton for the death gods and goths.

One Kind Favor ($20) Sold!: Hematite rounds, pale purple cathedral accent beads, and blood red matte glass spacers, with a metal skeleton charm pendant. Hand strung on black hemp cord. Sliding knots adjust from just over 30″ down to ~18″.

One Kind Favor

The sliding knots allow for adjustable length.

“There’s one kind favor I’ll ask of you
See that my grave is kept clean”

A deeply grounding necklace – six feet under ground! This necklace was strung with one-eyed death gods in mind, but it’s just as suitable for the two-eyed variety. Wear it in honor of Odin, Papa Ghede, Hella, the Morrigan, or perhaps Hades. Or you could just enjoy the rough goth aesthetic the next time you have a picnic in the graveyard.

The song that came burbling out while I was stringing this necklace was the Southern soulful blues “See That My Grave is Kept Clean” by Blind Lemon Jefferson. Specifically, the cover by Peter, Paul and Mary.

All prices include shipping for North American buyers. International buyers, we’d need to discuss shipping costs.

To purchase one of these beautiful necklaces, email me at Ember Outreach at Gmail dot Com with your mailing address, and selection.

Right now all I can take is PayPal. Because this is for a specific fund-raising purpose, right now I can’t accept barter, sorry.
