The Pentacle is a symbol of a star encased in a circle. Always with 5 points (one pointing upward), each has its own meaning. The upward point of the star is representative of the spirit. The other four points all represent an element; earth, air, fire, and water. It is worn as a ward of protection and as a focal point to connect with the spiritual realm. Additionally the binding circle of this talisman is shaped from 5 Fibonacci spirals, which represent the golden ratio and the mathematical constant for form in the natural world. These elements combined into a single piece signify balance not only between the elemental forces but within the natural world and self. The spirals of the outer ring rise above and overlay the pentacle on one side, this offers a completely different view from the opposite side where the pentacle is more apparent. This pendant is fully reversible, and the stone could be set facing either way but by default is as demonstrated in the pictures.
I offer three styles/ metal combinations for this piece. The first is 100% Sterling Silver, the second is a multi-metal fabrication with a Bronze Spiral-ring. The Third option is also a multi-metal construction and features a 14k Gold Spiral Ring. All 3 styles of this pentacle feature a 14k Gold Bezel setting for the 5mm round cut faceted stone. Choose from a variety of available stone options or no stone setting at all.
The Standard bail for this piece is a 5.5mm round 16 gauge jump ring which has been soldered (profile pic), but also pictured, I sell an upgraded looped bail which can be purchased from a separate listing and added onto this pendant. The upgraded bail is handmade from 20 gauge sterling sheet and comes with an adjustable 16-18 inch stainless steel chain. It is decorated with a 14K gold spiral, here is the link: https://www.etsy.com/listing/984984161/sterling-silver-bail-upgrade-handmade?ref=shop_home_active_1&frs=1&sca=1
If you purchase this piece and the bail I will join them together with a 18 gauge 14K Gold Rivet.
Each of these pendants begin as a unique wax model which is then cast in Sterling Silver or Bronze using the lost wax casting method. The stone setting and bail are fabricated by hand and different metal components fitted together and soldered in place. After the stone is set the piece is finished by hand. After all finishing work is completed it is coated in a layer of black patina to emphasize the recessed portions of the design then the raised portions are brought back to a high polish in contrast. All of the work from the wax model to the casting and finishing is performed by me in house at the Drakenforge studio.
