etched bullet casing necklace with picture jasper
Elegant necklace made of recycled bullet casing, which I hand-etched with an intricate flower mandala design, then decorated with brass filigree and a Swarovski gemstone. A faceted picture jasper point fills the casing. Full pendant measures approximately 2.5 inches in length and is very lightweight. 27-inch long brass chain.
Jaspers have been revered by ancient peoples and civilizations throughout the world as sacred and powerful stones of protection, for both the physical and spiritual realm. They were known as the "rain bringers" and nurturers, healers of the spirit and stones of courage and wisdom.
Picture jasper is characterized by masterful "scenes" and landscape patterns formed by nature, and is believed to contain hidden messages from the past. It was revered in many cultures of the world for its deep connection to the earth. Highly attuned to the earth's magnetic fields and energy systems, picture jasper provides a remarkable ability during meditation to merge with the consciousness of the earth.
As a grounding and harmonizing stone with a strong connection to the earth. it is said to promote feelings of responsibility towards the planet, encouraging a need to care for it and protect it. Picture jasper's grounding energy can give you a strong sense of who you are, where you've been and where you are going.
