The five-pointed star encompassed by a circle is an ancient symbol, found in both Eastern and Western cultures, and has been used to represent various aspects of human and spiritual ideals. As an Earth-related symbol, it has been associated in classic Tarot decks with abundance. Its use in paganism comes from various traditions of ceremonial magic. Each point is said to represent an element of creation: Air, Earth, Fire, and Water. The fifth element (Spirit or Akasha) is signified by the upward point. Its round shape and Earth associations make it sacred to the Goddess.
As a symbol, the pentacle is thought to have inherent magical powers. It is often inscribed on objects such as the hilt of an athame or the cover of a Book of Shadows. This shape is drawn in the air during some rituals, either with an athame or wand, to add power to the work. It is also considered a sign of protection from negative or harmful energies. When worn as a talisman it can act as both a ward of protection and a focal point for connecting with the spiritual realm.
This stylized version of the classic symbol measures 1.3 inches. Crafted from pure Sterling Silver and or Bronze this pendant featuring a bezel set 6mm cabochon round stone. Choose from the list of available stones in variations or you can opt for no stone setting at all in the center. You also have the options of 100% Sterling silver for both the inner and outer portions of the pentacle or a two piece fabrication using bronze for the outer elements and sterling for the inner star portion.
Each Pentacle I create begins its life as a unique carved wax model which is then cast separately in Sterling Silver and Bronze to form the inner and outer portions. These sections are then fitted together and soldered. The stone setting is made by hand, the bail is attached and the stone set. After all finishing work is completed it is coated in a layer of black patina to emphasize the recessed portions of the design and the raised portions are brought back to a high polish to contrast. All of the work from the wax model to the casting and finishing is performed by me in house at the Drakenforge studio.
