This year the Spring Equinox coincided with a full super moon for the first time in 19 years! I decided create a small, but very special collection to celebrate this rare and powerful occurrence.
This collection features colorful labradorite and gorgeous monarch butterfly wings electroformed in pure copper and hand aged to perfection.
The butterfly wings symbolize awakening and rebirth after a long period of rest and darkness. The darkness that a caterpillar finds itself surrounded by when it follows its inner calling and encases itself in a chrysalis is sacred. While it may be frightening, this cocooning is vital and initiates a sacred process of transformation. Just as necessary is the struggle the fully formed butterfly must make to emerge from its chrysalis. While the struggle may seem unnecessarily difficult, without it the butterfly will not have the strength to fly and live to fulfill its purpose.
Labradorite is a highly mystical and intuitive stone. It is all about transformation and rebirth and connecting with the divine feminine. I personally find the masculine to feminine energy of labradorite to be very balanced and is another reason that I chose to use it in this collection. The Spring Equinox is a time when the solar and lunar energies are most balanced on earth and so I wanted to work with a mineral that I find very balancing, while also associated with the sacred process rebirth that is so evident this time of year.
I hope you all enjoy this very special collection! Please note that this collection will be live on Thursday, March 21st at Noon Central Time.
