Hekate by AMyriadVice Hekate by AMyriadVice
And this would be that moonstone locket I've been promising for 8 months. XD

Simply gorgeous rainbow moonstone cabochons, wrapped in Argentium Sterling Silver.

------------------------------------------------------

Hekate is a powerful triple goddess of the Moon, Earth, and Underworld. Perhaps originally a moon goddess, Her name means "far-darter", which is a title also given to Apollo the sun-god whose rays are like arrows, and indeed she was often equated with his archer sister Artemis. Hekate is said to have come from Thrace, a land the Greeks considered barbaric, and most accounts name Her daughter of the Titans Perses (by some accounts brother to Kirke) and Asteria ("Starry", also an epithet of Aphrodite), both deities of light. As the Moon, Hekate (with Helios, the Sun) served as witness when Demeter's daughter Kore was abducted, since the Moon and Sun see all.

---------------------------------------------------

Indeed, I was thinking Artemis a lot, when I was working on this one. But with the pentacle cage I added, it just became so much more Hecate, so I went with it.

Apart from the cage, anyway, much of the locket's tech can be found in my locket tutorial. I'm a little rusty, too, and somewhat lacking patience, but I'll get it back.

Anyway, I'll make this one available on request, perhaps, for a limited time. Won't be marketing it. Probably, if no one wants it by a few months, I'll adopt her. (Which would make probably the first piece of jewellery I've taken for myself this year! Hm. I think.)
