moon phase compass necklace
This one-of-a-kind necklace features a recycled bullet casing, which was sourced from a private shooting area in the woods. This area is littered with bullet casings of all shapes and sizes and trash. I'm doing my part to clean up the Earth and make beautiful jewelry from it! I hand-etched the bullet with a phases of the moon design, then hand-cut a small round window and inserted a small functional compass inside. Finished with a faceted, onyx point. Pendant measures approximately 2 inches in length, is on a 27-inch long brass chain decorated with complementing brass and onyx tones. This design is versatile enough to be worn by either sex.
Onyx is a cryptocrystalline form of quartz. The etymological origin of the word onyx is thought to come from the Asyrian word for ring, indicating any material which can be used for ring producing.
Onyx is an excellent stone for releasing negative emotions such as sorrow and grief, and therefore brings good fortune and helps in recognizing personal strength. This black colored stone helps in relaxation, and in facing various challenges in life, especially if one suffers from a lack of life energy and exhaustion. It is often recommended to athletes as it increases strength, endurance, perseverance, and explosivity, especially if placed on the Solar plexus.
