Sedna by AMyriadVice Sedna by AMyriadVice
Paua Shell, faceted black spinel, golden sheen obsidian - and all wire is 1/10 silver filled, the clasp is sterling silver.

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

Sedna is the Inuit Goddess of the animals of the Sea, who is considered malevolent to humans, and greatly feared. Offerings are made to Her in an effort to win Her over and ensure plentiful hunting.

Sedna is believed to live under the Sea in a house of whale-bones and stones, and rule the realm of Adliden or Adlivin, where the Dead go to cleanse themselves of the sins of their lives.


Source (and to read about Sedna's legend) : [link] - 12 November, 2012

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

What's it with me and primordial sea goddesses? What can I say, they speak to me. Tiamat was a dear one to me, too:

Well, I love Sedna. Tragedy woven by desperation and betrayal, that's a helluva legend.

So I made five unique (albeit similar shaped and sized) pieces for this collar, and I suppose there might be a number of possible interpretations for it - the sea creatures that sprouted from Sedna's mutilated hands, obvious from the abalone shells, or with the netting, said creatures caught (or slipping between) fishermen's nets (or would those be fish scales?), the small, shiny beads like pearls dancing on the edges of the nets - or might I think of the entire piece as Sedna's domain, her dwelling in Adlivin?

In other news, both A Myriad Vice and Avera Studio Supplies have gone into Christmas sale mode. Do stop by. ;)

Have you sold this piece yet? As a resident of the north with many Inuit friends, I'm sure someone would love to own this (myself included!).

Oh, I have not yet. I was thinking of listing it on [link] before I leave for the great white north myself, on Wednesday. XD

Maybe I'll go do that in a minute...

I like the whole concept of this piece. Everything is strong while staying light and it doesn't burden the eyes too much. Very well done.:clap:

Well, your necklaces must be time-consuming, but they worth the time! Congratulation, and I'm glad that a story can inspire you this much! =) This is a nice thing, keep your good habit and connection with the goddesses! =)
