Ostara (commission)


Badge Awards

✨Time to refresh✨

Were you celebrating Ostara this year? Yeah, I mean the day of the pagan spring equinox. I‘m pretty sure that lots of people don’t even know about it. They do celebrate Samhain, Beltane or even Yule, but Ostara doesn’t seem as important, does it? And that’s a shame, I think. Why? Well, because Ostara is that turning point of the year when winter calm is succeeded by the spring renewal and growth. And I mean both nature and humans.

And that is the main idea of my newest commissioned work, which is called «Ostara». The spring isn’t here yet, no, but it’s on the way. The waves are set into motion, the trees awake from their winter slumber. I‘ve caught the last moment before sunrise — the sun isn’t here yet and you can still see the last morning star in the sky. That’s all the pictures I‘ve seen inside this natural dendritic opal stone. All I had to do was to continue that picture outside of the cabochon.

The pendant and the matching bracelet are commissioned works for my friend and will be shipped to Russia soon. Ostara is the third Wheel of the Year festival I «created» in my jewelry. (The other two were Yule and Beltane). The pendant is made of Japanese TOHO seed beads, polymer clay Fimo, dendrite opal cabochon, some chrysolite splinters and metallic parts. The star is glowing in the dark. I crafted that piece for about two and a half weeks.

It’s idea including the initial sketch was discussed with my friend. Transforming those transparent ideas to jewelry concepts is my passion. Dm me your ideas and they will become jewelry too.
