ATHENA is a tribal amulet that features a large Green Turquoise focal bead pendant with charm dangles of Amethyst, Peridot and tiny glass vials filled with magical bits. The glass bottles contain a collection of Amethyst & Peridot nuggets, plus tiny mice bones that were collected and cleaned from Barn Owl pellets. I personally gathered the Barn Owl pellets. My concept was to create ornately beaded necklaces that recall more ancient times where gemstones were worn as amulets of protection, strength and power. The necklace is adjustable with black leather ties that are knotted around an African brass ring from an antique money belt and an African bone focal bead. The leather ties can be worn down the back or in front. The necklace features African brass spacers, dark oxidized chain, wire and findings. ATHENA feels substantial and is reflective of Warrior Spirit.
TURQUOISE is sacred to both Native American and oriental traditions. It is associated with the sky, and bringing sky energy to earth. It can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart. It is also said to protect against pollution in the environment, and to bring abundance. Turquoise can also help speed the healing process, and is known as a master healer stone. It is very powerful for grounding and protection also. Turquoise is associated with the throat chakra primarily.
AMETHYST in the psychic and spiritual realms, is an excellent all-purpose stone that can increase spirituality, enhance intuition and psychic powers of all kinds. It does this by making a clear connection between the earth plane and other planes and worlds. Amethyst is also excellent for meditation and lucid dreaming. It is known to open one's channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience, clairvoyance, and communication with angels. Amethyst also protects against psychic attacks, especially during spiritual work, and protects one from thieves, and protects travelers.
PERIDOT is associated with the heart chakra, and can be used to balance and stimulate that chakra. It is a stone of compassion. It has a friendly energy and is excellent for healing. It assists in rebirth and renewal of all kinds. Peridot also bring abundance and prosperity. It enhances the healing and harmony of relationships of all kinds, but particularly marriage. It also assists in finding what is lost, and strengthens ESP abilities. It has been said to make a shield of protection around the body of any wearer of Peridot.
BARN OWL TOTEM is the symbol of the feminine, the moon and the night. The owl is the bird of magic and darkness, of prophecy and wisdom. An owl totem gives you the power to extract secrets. Meditate on the owl and things will be revealed. Listen to its voice inside of you. You will hear not what is being said by others, but what is hidden. You can detect subtleties of voice that others cannot. People cannot deceive a person who has an owl totem. Owl people can see into the darkness of others souls. Most owl people are clairvoyant because of this ability. It can be very scary at times. Learn to trust your instincts about people. Let your owl totem guide you. BARN OWL reflects the ability to the heart and the mind. It can connect you to spirits and the houses that they haunt. Mediums and “ghost hunters” often have this totem. This totem can give you very strong clairvoyant abilities.
MOUSE TOTEM has a gift for paying attention to the minutest of details in everything your do. You can easily discern which details are the important ones and which one do not need your attention. Your heightened awareness of your surroundings allows you to spot danger long before others around you. You also tend to be rather timid or shy in time of stress. Your temerity does not go unrecognized by yourself however and is often compensated for by your adaptability and determination.
