Dedicated to the goddess Kore or Persephone, Queen of the underworld long before the myth of her abduction with Pluto was invented and she became the goddess of spring. One of the oldest goddesses, she is another name for Hecate, Hel-- those who preside over the blessed dead. This necklace with its spring colourways shifts from dark to light to dark again in honour of the shifting aspects of this goddess.
All my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped with lavender and Scottish heather.
