Sedna close-up by AMyriadVice Sedna close-up by AMyriadVice
Close up photo of , as requested by ~SanzoBrat

Also, have put this one up for sale at AveraJewellery.com, which is just launched. Do pop by for a look-see, quite a lot of gems and beads listed already.

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. ;)
