Badali Jewelry Sterling Silver Special Price $45.00 (Normally $59.00)
Inspired by the Iron Druid Chronicles™ series by Kevin Hearne, the Badali Jewelry artists Janelle Badali, Katelyn Badali, and Paul J. Badali designed and crafted the Elemental Sphere Locket. When an Elemental introduces itself to a new druid, it presents the druid with a stone sphere. The stone sphere is a symbol of the Elemental itself, serves to connect the druid to the Elemental, the Elemental to the druid, and can be used by the druid as a focus while learning to anchor themselves in the different head spaces needed to speak with Gaia's spirits of biomes and other earthly elements. Elementals can be called upon by druids to perform favors and can even defend the druid when needed.
The locket that holds the sphere is made up of six Celtic triskele knots woven from newly budding branches. The triskele is a symbol of the foundation of the Celtic world - earth, sea, and sky. The locket opens so that the Elemental sphere can be held or changed for another. Each Elemental Sphere necklace is skillfully crafted in your choice of yellow bronze on antiqued bronze. Antiqued bronze is a surface treatment that will eventually wear away over time. How quickly a surface treatment will wear away is dependent on the daily wear and tear the item will be exposed to. The lockets are carefully hand finished and individually inspected for the highest quality by our staff. The Elemental Sphere Locket officially licensed Iron Druid Chronicles jewelry with Kevin Hearne. Mr. Hearne personally approves each piece of jewelry from our jewelry line.
The locket holds your choice of Elemental Spheres: Sonora, Colorado, Olympia, or Tasmania. Sonora presents a piece of itself to Granuaile MacTiernan as a turquoise sphere. The Sonora marble is a turquoise colored howlite gemstone sphere. Colorado itself to Granuaile as a "whorled sphere of rough sandstone in a range of earth tones, kind of like a gas giant in miniature". The Colorado marble is a picture jasper gemstone sphere. Olympia presents itself to Granuaile as a white marble sphere. The Olympia marble is a white howlite gemstone sphere. Tasmania presents itself to Owen and his apprentices as a bright yellow-green sphere with droplets and veins of rich violet. The Tasmania marble is a ruby-zoisite gemstone sphere. One sphere is included in the price of the necklace, but additional spheres can be purchased for our special price of $7.00 each (regularly $10.00 each).
The Elemental Sphere pendant measures approximately 35.5 mm (1 3/8") top to bottom and 26.5 mm (1") wide in diameter. The Elemental Sphere necklace weighs approximately 13.4 grams.
Choose from a 24" long stainless steel rope chain, a 24" long gold plated steel rope chain, or a 24" long black leather cord.
