The Serpent's Storm Safety Pin
Ok - bringing back the safety pins from The Fuctional Jewels Collection, because they are such an integral part of our swamp traditions here, and so useful and stylish, anywhere! But this time I compromised. I am a purist, I like everything to be entirely hand fabricated by myself, in fine metals... BUT that's not super time or financially effective to keep these beauties coming back, especially when not everyone even cares about a fully hand made heirloom sterling silver pin, they just want somethig durable and affordable. SO, a compromise. A stainless steel pin, but with all the magic and uniqueness my hand crafted silver adornments offer!
This oversized safety pin is made with a base of stainless steel. Its a toughy.
On its front, a mesmerizing piece of Hypersthene rests, cradled by a hand crafted, solid fine silver garden snake, found in my yard on a very poignant day during this transition between fall and winter. These serpent storm pieces are a personal testament to finding light even among the darkest of skies. My makers mark stamped on the reverse.
When researching it's metaphysical properties, many different uses come up, all of which are admittedly incrredibly poignant to the chapter I am going through currrently, which leads me to understand why I feel so incredibly pulled to this stone right now.
+ Hypersthene: Considered a protective stone, hypersthene helps create calmness and quietness within the mind of the wearer. Believed to be a talisman that promotes self-love & satisfaction, independence, strength, and endurance. It aids in the ability to let go of being concerned about what's next, but instead redirects your concentration internally. This allows you to reflect, observe, and understand what it is your body (both physical and mental) truly needs. +
You can use these beauties as clothing or home decor, keychains, to pin your important documents or birthday dollars on you... the possibilities are endless.
One of a kind and made with so much love.
It measures 5” long, and the eye measures 3/4" across.
