1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Fertility Necklace for my Sister-in-law's birthday on: January 26, 2005 06:47:18 AM
I made this necklace for my sister-in-law. Her and my brother are trying to have a baby.
In the center is a little goddess figure with 2 drop garnets. The drops represent blood.  The two rose quarts stand for love.  I like how they point to each other symbolizing a path in which their energy should be directed, which is of course a baby.  
    Then there are 8 rose beads symbolizing the 8 phases of the moon.  Then a triple moon goddess symbol is created by sandwiching a round bead in between 2 spacers.  
    After that there are 7 beads which represents the maximum amount of days a woman can get pregnant during each cycle. Followed by another triple moon goddess symbol.
    Then 28 rose beads symbolizing the days in between a woman's cycle and the length of the moons cycle.  Then 2 more drops once again symbolizing blood (the coming of ovulation and menstruation).  
    Then 8 more beads once again symbolizing the phases of the moon and then the T bar toggle which I chose because in this piece it symbolizes the act itself.  You must push the T bar inside the circle. heh  
    So it basically starts at the clasp, which symbolizes sex and then it all trickles down to the goal which is conception.  I hope she likes it!  
    The bracelet is made with 8 beads symbolizing the moon phases and garnets symbolizing blood and the triple moon goddess symbols with the fertility goddess in the center.

I would love to know what you all think.. Smiley
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Marvelous.. Maggots? on: January 21, 2005 05:01:42 AM
Hi there:) I am a brand new member of this awesome community. I have been lurking for hours looking at all the awesome stuff you all have made.  I decided to share with you, my "marvelous maggot" necklace.  I hope there are some people out there like me who think he is incredibly adorable and would wear him proudly around their neck as I do.
He is made out of translucent with a dab of ivory polymer clay. Condition, roll into a thick snake and then start twisting.  Smooth off the "head" part and pierce with a bamboo skewer.  Bake as usual and string him on cotton cording. I also made a "lovely Larva" one too using some orangey-brown and ivory clay.


Nice to meet you all:)
