This is a one of a kind piece of wearable art. Inspired by the Tarot card “The Moon”

The Moon card shows a full moon in the night’s sky, positioned between two large towers. The Moon is a symbol of intuition, dreams, and the unconscious. Its light is dim compared to the sun, and only slightly illuminates the path to higher consciousness winding between the two towers.

With Pisces as its ruling sign, the Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. At its darkest this can be a very scary card warning the querent of hidden enemies, mental illness, alcoholic blackouts or a bad drug trip. At its very best, however, the Moon is a card of genius, of mental breakthroughs, astonishing creativity, powerful magic, and intuition.

I created this piece with big pieces of antique precious black coral, black tourmaline beads, 4mm garnets and 8mm carved grey moonstone cabochons. The silverwork is done by hand and each piece is made meticulously for the stone, coral or tourmaline. The strand of tourmaline are on a silver wire to give it stability.

The necklace clasp is made up of the two “C” shapes on the right side of the piece. The length for this piece would be about 18” and it is very comfortable around the neck. It’s surprisingly light from the coral. There are so many details for the beholder to examine, from the rich coral textures to the delicate glints of stone or shined sterling silver components.

This is a piece from my “Cursed Object” series. While it doesn’t possess any actual curse, it is meant to make a viewer weary. This piece has a gravity to it, a darkness that is meant to be feared, appreciated and to evoke curiosity.
