First of all, I want to tell you how I loved to wear this pendant. How I love its elusive nature…very few people will look at it and say “oh look! A bone!”. Most will see the butterfly – which I really like. It’s like a little secret 😉
Now, here is what I wrote about it on my Instagram on the day I made it:
This morning I was up early and wanting to channel “something” but not quite finding my way. Until…I stumbled upon the sphenoid bone. And BAM!
The sphenoid bone is this thing we have in our skull, more or less behind the eyes, that is shaped like a butterfly – i see a moth though
And! The layers of meaning here…woah!
There’s a little notch in the sphenoid (in the body of the butterfly), in which the pituitary gland is housed. Another part of the sphenoid supports the part of the brain that houses the pineal gland. It is believed in chakra circles, that these two glands: the pituitary, that secretes major hormones, and the pineal, which regulates circadian rhythms and produces melatonin, when activated together energetically open the Third Eye. .
The graphic symbol for the Third Eye Chakra is described as a blue two-petaled lotus. Butterfly wings anyone?
This is hand drawn, cut and carved in sterling silver, with some brass on the bail.
It features a Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and a Labradorite to symbolize the two glands.
In the back, I carved a Seeing Heart.
