This is a One-of-a-Kind pendulum design - meaning there is only one of this particular pendulum.
This pendulum is made with Smoky Quartz and sterling silver. Smoky Quartz is a purifying, protective stone that allows you to perceive energies of the ethereal realm, while remaining on a grounded, physical level. Three lovely, smooth disks of Smoky Quartz are stacked between sterling silver mounts, giving this pendulum an architectural quality. This "stacked stone" is a wonderful way to see and experience more of the natural beauty of this lovely quartz. The resulting weightiness of this unusual shape creates a strong, well balanced swing. The detachable sterling silver chain is adorned with Smoky Quartz accents, all set with sterling silver mounts.
The fob (also called the holding piece) is a sterling silver hot air balloon. The "balloon" part of the fob is domed on the front and convex on the back, which makes a lovely scoop to nestle your thumb or fingertip into while dowsing. The design is pierced, so you can see through the decorative slits on the balloon. Fob is detailed and highly polished on front and edges on the back.
Symbolism: To step into a Hot Air Balloon is to embark upon an exciting adventure. It represents voyage and a quest for spiritual knowledge. This motif also symbolizes the notion of “rising above” practical matters - and letting go of fear and caution to seek out more lofty pursuits.
Note from artist: I call this one "Up in Smoke". I don't typically name my One-of-a-Kind designs, but sometimes they just name themselves during the design process. :)
Included with this pendulum -Drawstring pouch, giftbox, small polishing cloth, pendulum use and care instructions.
Measurements- Overall length of pendulum is 8 1/2". The chain length (including the lobster claw clasps) is 6". Weight-stone (including mountings) measures 1 1/4" tall by 13/16" wide. The fob is 7/8" tall and 5/8" wide. All measurements are close approximates.
All metal parts (chain, clasp, fob, mountings, and connectors) are sterling silver. All stones are genuine.
How to wear this pendulum: This pendulum's chain has a clasp that allows you to detach the weight-stone so you can wear it as a pendant - simply by slipping it onto your own neck chain or satin cord. Or you can wear the whole pendulum by using a pendulum-to-pendant adapter, or simply by threading a neck chain or cord through one of the links in the pendulum's chain and letting both ends dangle. (Adapter and neck chain sold separately - see related items below.)
