|Topaz Crystal Black Copper Spiral Pendant Necklace: $25+shipping|
The spiral is one of the oldest known symbols of life force. In nature we see spirals in celestial galaxies, whirlwinds and whirlpools. The spiral also symbolizes time, the cyclic rhythms of the seasons and of birth and death, the waxing and waning of the moon, and the sun.
The metal copper is associated with the goddess Aphrodite/Venus in mythology and alchemy, representing such characteristics as love, balance, feminine beauty, and artistic creativity.
In this necklace, black glass vintage beads in various sizes add a mysterious touch, combining with pale, almost peachy topaz faceted crystals and scalloped copper tone bead caps to create a striking effect. Shiny copper colored seed beads lead to a stylish copper toggle clasp. I used copper wire guards for extra strength and a more finished look.
