Astrea~The Star Maiden~ This piece has a bright yet grounding energy... Astrea is sharing with us that it takes finesse to balance the scales of light and darkness in our lives. We must always make sure to embrace our shadow side for all it has taught us and the strengths that were acquired through our darkness. We must also equally embrace our light, making sure not to be overtaken by it, or become self righteous and think we know all the answers. If you put too much weight on either side of the scales, they will tip out of balance and one will overtake the other. The key is to realize that all of you is what makes you special, your light and your shadow. This piece is a very good place to start if you're looking to create a balance that you feel you're missing at this time. Our Darkness isn't bad, and our light isn't self righteous, we gain knowledge and experience from both. If we choose to, we can learn many lessons from the situations we find ourselves in from either side! This talisman can be worn daily, used during a ritual, meditation, or spellwork. Remember to be Still and Listen, not with your ears but with your Spirit and Heart. Please specify the length of the chain you'd like at the checkout. I always include a 100% copper custom length chain with a purchase. I'll choose the style chain that best complements the piece. Each piece is handmade with intention, love, and positive vibes while keeping the properties of each stone in mind. Your jewelry is made by copper electroforming, which is a technique that plates your piece in a thick layer of copper. The process always creates unique textures, bringing out the natural beauty of the stones. The piece is then patina to create a one of a kind work of art! I like to use copper in my pieces because of the healing properties of copper, it's believed that copper can help with arthritis, improves circulation, increases energy, detoxifies and helps to reduce inflammation in the body. It has some amazing benefits!

This piece has been laquered to protect the patina and add shine, be sure to take off before going into the ocean, shower or lake as it can break down the laquer. If this happens, clean with a little lemon juice, dry completely and coat with clear nail polish.
