The poet, Erin Hanson, says that the sun watches what we do, but the moon knows all our secrets.

Never forget you’re your imagination is a crucial tool within the manifestation process, and the biggest obstacle standing in the way is often ourselves.
Show your love for the celestial realms with this dainty layering necklace made from brass.

Skeleton Key Necklace
March's delivery is a sterling silver necklace with a skeleton key pendant.
If you’re a history lover, an antique collector, or simply someone who senses the mystical in the mundane, you already know that there’s something alluring about skeleton keys.
Yes, in a literal sense, they were a means for our grandparents to lock and unlock doors—but what else can they open?
You may have heard stories about ancestors using skeleton keys to communicate with spirits—also known as cleidomancy. Divining with keys is like dowsing with a pendulum. The practitioner dangles a skeleton key from a string or chain and asks yes or no questions. It’s up to the owner of the key to interpret answers from the key’s movements.
Some of our ancestors also incorporated the bible or another sacred text into this ritual, which is part of the reason that cleidomancy took place behind closed doors. If you had an important question, you would place the key inside of a holy book and bind it tightly with ribbon. With the key secure between the pages, you’d pick up the string that’s attached to the key to lift the book. With the book hanging freely, you could ask a series of questions. When the key slips from the pages and lands back on the ground, you have your answer.
If you feel drawn to skeleton keys, there’s likely a profound reason that reaches beyond their aesthetic appeal. Wearing or working with the tools of our ancestors is a way to honor their spirit and the customs that came before us.

Its multiple layers can bring hidden information to light.

Helm of Awe Necklace
Decembers North of Stella piece is the Helm of Awe pendant in either silver or rose gold.
The Helm of Awe is easily one of the most powerful and intriguing symbols in Norse Mythology. For centuries its 8-pointed design has been drawn, etched, and worn during rituals to strike fear into the heart of enemies. Norse elders claim that working with the Helm of Awe expands psychic abilities, allowing a person to penetrate the ethereal boundaries of others. Manipulating the thoughts and actions of their enemies gave Norse people a supernatural layer of protection from anyone who wished them harm.
If you’re familiar with Germanic runes, you may notice that the eight arms of the Helm of Awe closely resemble the Algiz and Isa runes.
This is not a coincidence.
The Algiz (or Elhaz) rune is intimately linked with divine protection, creativity, and the willingness to act. It asks that we reflect upon the tools that are readily available and use accordingly. Whereas Algiz is prodding us to spring into action, Isa tells us to pause, get grounded, and purvey our surroundings. It’s a reminder that important details are often overlooked when moving too quickly. Slow down, take a breath, and consider that there might be vital information hiding just out of sight.

Celtic Knot Necklace
In Celtic tradition, the “infinity knot” or “endless knot” represents eternity, undying or unending. While this symbol can represent life, it also is used to represent friendship, love, freedom, loyalty and a myriad of other sentiments that endure.
The design itself is always one thread, one line and one woven loop. There is no end and no beginning. This symbolizes how life, eternity and the after life are all connected.
The designs were first seen in 3BC and can be found in art, manuscripts and architecture. They are found in Roman mosaics, Russian literature, Ethiopian art, Medieval era & Islamic art. It is believed the knot traveled it way through Europe, making its way to Ireland & the Scottish Highlands.
Celtic knots or “mystic knots” as they are also called, were exchanged between lovers as amulets of affection the way we now exchange rings in marriage.
Your necklace is made of .925 sterling silver and was inspired by the stunning green hills of Scotland. Our travels took us through abandoned castles, thick forests, down cobblestone streets and inside warm pubs.
Do not soak in water, clean with a dry jewelry cloth. Do not get lotions, perfumes or oils on the gold.
Ancient legends that span continents and generations insist that a bee’s gifts are not just physical, but spiritual. If we believe the stories (and I think most of us do), then bees are intertwined with all life and death throughout the universe.
Ancient Greece shares this sentiment. According to myth, a bee could manipulate a human’s fate by touch. If it landed on a child’s lips, the child would grow to become a great writer, poet, or performer. If it rested atop their head, the child would become a person of great distinction. And if you felt burdened, a bee atop the hand was a blessing at any age, for it meant that financial abundance was within reach.

Sacred Geometry Blue Howlite Necklace
Wearing blue howlite encourages a person to communicate their truth. Howlite wants to activate our throat chakra, whether it be through speaking, singing, or another vocal activity. Speaking our truth can feel intimidating (especially if it doesn’t align with societal norms), but even amid chaos, howlite envelops us in a blanket of calm. As an attunement stone, howlite reminds us that if our thoughts aren’t currently evolving, then neither is the soul.

Light as a Feather Necklace
While not location specific, this months piece came to us from inspiration of many foreign lands.
As we move about the world and explore new places, we are always amazed by our similarities as well as our differences to places and people we have never met.
No matter where we are in the world, there is always something that binds us as humans and sets us apart as a culture.
We chose a feather as this months piece as it is one staple we have seen in almost every place we have visited. For the indigenous peoples of North America, the feather represents connection to the Spirit. In ancient Egypt, the goddess Ma’at wears a single ostrich feather that is said to be the feather of truth. The Highlanders of Scotland placed a feather in their cap to symbolize rank in their clan. In Mesoamerica (pre -colonial Mexico) feathers were considered magickal and were symbols of fertility, abundance and the divine.
We chose the abalone shell in honor of the adage, “as above so below;” as the sea is the opposite of the sky and balance is always necessary.
We hope you connect with this piece as much as do and wish you safe travels wherever you may go.

White Magic Natural Shell Pendant & Necklace
Our emotions are tied to our intuition—our gut instincts during the moments that matter most. And that energy is tied to one very important element, water. As land creatures, we tend to become out of touch with our emotions when we’re away from water too long. Anytime we wish to reconnect with our emotional nature, we can take a dip in the ocean, a river, or a pool. We can also align our emotional ebbs and flows by working with shells and other fossils formed by water.
Natural shell pendant in 2 colors: White Magic or Earth & Sand.
Bottomless Oceans Necklace
With our human bodies tied to land, it’s easy to forget that there is a mystical world hidden within the depths of our oceans. There’s the Loch Ness Monster, The Kraken, and a long list of sea nymphs and deities that rule this realm, but perhaps none of the stories are as captivating as that of the Sirens.
The Sirens are a sisterhood of elusive mermaids who use their beautiful singing voices to lure sailors to unsafe waters. Modern stories describe Sirens as being half-person, half-fish, but long ago, Sirens were believed to be half-human, half-bird. After Persephone’s abduction by Hades, Demeter is said to have gifted wings to the Sirens so they could assist in the search for her daughter.

Raw Amethyst Necklace
Many people believe that amethyst is the most desirable crystal to wear when attempting to stimulate or master psychic abilities. Mediums use amethyst as a conduit when communicating with the spirit world. With practice, they learn to see past the veil that separates this reality from the next. This allows us to connect with deceased ancestors, dream walkers, spirit guides, our highest self, or anyone else that resides in the spirit world.

Milk & Honey Kuchi Necklace
Kuchi necklace, handmade by an ancient tribe in Afghanistan.
The Kuchi people are Pakhtuns, which is the dominant tribe in Afghanistan. While they are largely settled now, historically they were a nomadic tribe that traveled the ancient trade routes between Afghanistan and Pakistan. They were the wanderers, the explorers, a romantic tribe of nomads who revered the vibrant and intricate art their jewelry displayed. This craft of jewels is a celebration of life, of beauty, of style, of electric, colorful boldness!
The Kuchi often add coins, bells, and colorful cut glass to their adornments—bringing a richer life and experience to the jewelry. Many believe that these jewels not only amplify ones radiance and beauty, but that they also ward off evil spirits.
Kuchi jewelry has a great and rich cultural history—with the designs having remained mainly unchanged over the last 3000 years.
Whites, Reds, greens and turquoise pieces are commonly a colored Howlite. Howlite is said to be a calming stone and is ideal to wear when encountering stressful energy.
Lotus Flower Layering Necklace
When words don't suffice, flowers may be used to express our emotions. In the modern world, we share flowers to convey love, sympathy, regret, and cheer. However, stories of mysterious blooms like those of the sacred water-lily reveal that flowers carry something much greater—the essence of the divine.
We see evidence of this relationship as far back as Ancient Egypt, where Egyptians carved pictures of lotus flowers into the walls of tombs, temples, and their pharaoh’s thrones. For them, a flower that seemingly sleeps below the water and rises each morning, was a symbol of death, rebirth, and the confirmation of reincarnation. Gods and Goddesses like Atum-Ra, Nefertem, and Hapi are some of the deities whose spirits intertwine with that of the lotus flower.
Outside of the Egyptian Pantheon, Hindu deities like Ganesha and Lakshmi stand upon a bed of lotus flowers to symbolize their enlightenment and eternal lifeforce. And in Buddhism, Buddha himself claims a lotus flower for his throne—referencing the yoga and meditation position by the same name.
Anytime we feel a bit ‘stuck’ in life, we can take comfort knowing that the most beautiful lotus flowers grow from the murkiest waters. This revelation suggests that despite obscure circumstances, with ample patience and self-awareness, we all can reach the light.

Sacred Mountains Necklace
Our Sacred Mountains necklace was chosen as a representation of overcoming. As with all things worth having, the work to achieve it is the most important part. The old adage of "its the journey, not the destination" rings true, even with the hard hills to climb. We chose this design as a nod to the peaks and valleys in life and as a reminder of the beauty in balance and in uphill climbs.
