Sterling Silver Dragonfly Pendant with Iolite Stone - Dragonfly's Secret Too

  • $72.00

A sterling silver dragonfly pendant with an extra large vintage style solid brass dragonfly resting on a background of hammered sterling silver. This large statement pendant carries a secret in the back - a beautiful purple-blue iolite stone.

The pendant measures 2 inches in diameter, and has been hand hammered, shaped, and polished to a soft shine. It has been lightly oxidized to bring out the detail in the design, and includes an oxidized sterling silver chain with handmade shepherd's hook clasp. Chain is available in custom lengths up to 32 inches - price will vary according to length.

***Both dragonflies and iolite have special meaning for many people. Read more below:***

Iolite is also known as the "water sapphire" and is believed by many to have special properties. Ancient mariners used iolite as a compass to guide their way to sea. They noted that it would show different hues of blue-violet when held to the northern and southern skies. Ancients also believed that it could unlock creativity in an artist.

Traditionally, Iolite is used to aid in meditation as it opens a path to inner knowledge and brings harmony to the self within. It is also used for its healing properties and is said to protect from disease and aid in sleep.

Dragonflies are also believed to have special meaning:
Dragonflies are reminders that we are light and can reflect the light in powerful ways if we choose to do so. "Let there be light" is the divine prompting to use the creative imagination as a force within your life. They are said to help you to see through your illusions and allow your own light to shine in a new vision.
