Artemis was the Lady of Wild Things and mistress of the Hunt, but it is her role as the three-formed goddess that is the inspiration for this necklace. Later poets associated Artemis with Hecate and Selene; Artemis represented the lovely Hunter flashing through the forest, Selene the Moon making all beautiful with her light, and Hecate the Goddess of the Dark Moon and she who stands at the Crossways. The silvery light and flash of a star or moon or a creature's bright eyes are captured by the soft leather and satin and brilliance of the Swarovski crystal ringed with pearls.

Cost: $56.00 USD

Length: necklace - 24"

Materials:

  • Swarovski crystal drop
  • freshwater pearl beads
  • leather link
  • satin 1mm cord
  • silver plate hook & eye clasp

Care & cleaning: Clean with warm soapy washcloth (do not submerge) and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners.

Hard tugging on the pendant may distort the bail or beading wire securing the pieces together, so it would be best to keep this out of the hands of little ones. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

Not all jewelry - particularly beaded jewelry - work well with all varieties of necklines. The 24" necklace length means the necklace will lay flat and look balanced with crew necks, boat necks, turtle necks and shallow scoop necks. It might look awkward with V-necks, but it is long enough that it could be paired over a collared shirt, if the top button was around the breastbone or so. It is a longer necklace, but the materials are lightweight so it is easy on the neck.
