For as long as humans have occupied this planet, the moon has played an integral role in the development of societies and cultural identities. For many of us, each moon phase carries a unique energy, but together they form a roadmap.
This map is not linear, but cyclical in nature. It’s filled with low valleys, staggering peaks, and plenty of dead ends that leave us void of course.
These emotional highs and lows are not dissimilar to that which we experience on a day-to-day basis. Depending on our character, this volatility can feel exciting, scary, or frustrating in a world that insists that success is born from consistency. The moon shows us an alternate path—one that encourages a hefty dose of passion for balancing logic, stillness for heightening creativity, and quiet reflection for laser-focused intentions.
With dedication, our relationship with the moon offers a glimpse into the waxing and waning aspects of the psyche and fosters a unique connection with the cosmos.
It is our wish that when you wear this lunar phase necklace that you consider your own roadmap. 2020 has hardly taken its first breath, but this new decade is ripe with opportunity and awaiting your first step. Embrace change, listen to your emotions and look forward to the magick of new beginnings.

Nordic Runes on a 20" Chain, sterling silver.
September's North of Stella is a sterling silver necklace depicting the Algiz rune. ✨⠀ ⠀ The Algiz (or Elhaz) rune is intimately linked with divine protection, creativity, and the desire to act. It asks that we reflect upon the tools that are readily available and use them accordingly.⠀ ⠀ Whereas Algiz is prodding us to spring into action, we must also wait for the right moment. Pause, stay grounded, and purvey your surroundings. Remember that critical details are often overlooked when moving too quickly. It's when we slow down and check in with our breath, that our awareness shifts to the vital information hiding just out of sight. 🌚⠀ ⠀ Algiz translates to ‘elk.’ Many people assume that the antler-like appearance of the Algiz rune symbolizes the elk’s quiet, protective qualities. That may be true, but antlers and horns were also associated with godliness and otherworldly communication. They represented power. More specifically, a human’s ability to create and do things that extended far beyond their imagination. ⠀ ⠀ The Algiz symbol may appear in a person’s life when they are going through an awakening. A slew of synchronicities often follows, and through that, a deeper understanding of what it feels like to channel divine guidance. 💫⠀

Helm of Awe Necklace
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.
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.

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.
Sterling silver pendant and chain. Pendant measures 1 inch.
Aurora Borealis Light Amethyst Necklace

Aurora would race across the breaking morning sky to wave to her siblings and celebrate a new day. Wear our Aurora Borealis necklace to celebrate cycles, new beginnings, and sunrises. Raw light purple amethyst on a silver chain.
The Serpent Necklace
This month’s delivery is a minimalistic necklace, complete with a 14kt gold or sterling silver pendant in the shape of a serpent.
In our increasingly modern world, many people view snakes as fearsome creatures. But to some, snakes are not the sinister predators that we humans make them out to be.
If we dive deeper into the serpent’s history, we see that this reptile represents reincarnation, healing, and our connection to the realm of dreams. She (because yes, the snake speaks to the divine feminine aspect of the psyche) also symbolizes wisdom. Lucky for us, the serpent is eager to share her vast library of occult knowledge with anyone brave enough to ask.
We see the relationship between the serpent and healing therapies when we look at the Rod of Asclepius. The Rod of Asclepius, whose image is sewn into the clothing of emergency and hospital staff, depicts a snake intertwined around a large staff.
In ancient Greece, the staff belonged to Asclepius, the mysterious demigod of healing and dreams. According to stories, Asclepius had a temple where his followers sought relief from aches, pains, and illnesses—both physical and mental.
Because his treatment required long periods of rest, you would be shown to a quiet chamber for reflection, renewal, and eventually, resurrection.
But the room was also filled with snakes.
Asclepius believed that serpents were the key to healing, so visitors were instructed to lie on the floor as these creatures ‘kissed’ and slithered over their bodies. If you were one of the lucky ones, Asclepius and the snakes would use this time to share a vision with you.
While most of the people who paid a visit to the temple of Asclepius were cured, even if sickness persisted, visitors claimed that they no longer feared anything—not even the mystical realm that awaits all humans at the conclusion of their life.

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.

Bolt of Zeus Labradorite Necklace
Once upon a myth, when Zeus was at war against the Titans, he released his brothers Hades and Poseidon, as well as Cyclops and Hecatonchires. To thank him, Cyclopes gifted Zeus the thunderbolt. Zeus and his thunderbolt became symbols of divine power across the skies. Raw labradorite point measures 1.5 inches long and is attached to a gold plated 22 inch chain.
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.
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.

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.
Quartz Dagger & Rosary Chain Necklace
Have you ever worked with a pendulum for divination? As a tool, you can hold a pendulum above a board or some other divinatory marking and ask questions of guidance.

Affixed to a black beaded rosary chain, it is a simple & magickal statement piece.
Golden Leaf Necklace
Daphne, the daughter of a river god, is associated through mythology with leaves and laurels. The laurel was symbolic of Apollo’s love of Daphne. After rejecting Apollo, like she did every lover, Apollo was angry. To save herself from his wrath, she fell to the Earth and was transformed into a laurel. This leafy symbol is one of both connections to the Earth and of protection. Stay grounded as you drape it around your neck. This simple yet beautiful gold necklace will elevate any of your favorite outfits. The two leaves are fixed to a delicate gold link chain, perfect for layering with other necklaces or worn alone.
The Hermit Tarot Necklace
In tarot, the Hermit asks that we step back from our routine, put our worldly responsibilities on hold (at least temporarily) and dive into the deep well of inner knowing.
The lone wanderer carrying his sole source of light speaks to the importance of being our own guide through the darkness; and also to the undeniable power we all possess that is our inner light.
Chain and pendant are 14k gold plated, chain measures 22 inches and has an additional extender.
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.

This turquoise pendant measures 1 inch and is on a 22 inch golden chain.
