A part of history......
Each one with a patina that is unique and beautiful. They carry an energy of love + devotion from the past.
Citrine is a stone of light and happiness. It does not hold any negative energy and therefore never needs to be cleansed. It brings clarity to those who wear it and helps to manifest anything you want to bring into your life. It activates your imagination, bringing more creative visions to a clearer mind and a more positive outlook in life. Powered by the Sun, Citrine warms, cleanses and energizes the body, energizing and strengthening the solar plexus.
The Miraculous Medallion, featuring the Virgin Mary is recognized in Catholicism as a symbol of devotion and is known for the many graces and miraculous events that are associated with wearing it. Moreover, wearing the medal reminds us to pray and meditate daily.
Under Stalin’s rule, churches were destroyed + all items relating to religious worship were taken away and buried under earth + rubble in Moscow, some, centuries old, were unearthed after the end of Communism in Russia. These Orthodox Russian crosses are a part of history and their energy is beautiful. With loving care I created a limited number of pendants with them. I hope you love them as much as I do.
