Polymer Clay and Sterling Silver Pendant
Ankh - "Key of Life"

The Ankh, also known as key of life, the key of the Nile or crux ansata (Latin
meaning "cross with a handle"), was the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that
read "life". It represents the concept of eternal life.

I made this pendant with polymer clay. I hand painted it and added stones in the
colors of the Chakra. Amethyst, Lapis, Turquoise, Peridot, Citrine, Carnelian, and
Garnet. Each stone represents a part of the Chakra.

Violet (Amethyst stone) = Crown - Personal identification with Infinite. Oneness with
God. Peace. Wisdom

Indigo (Lapis stone) = Third Eye - Clearing subconscious to channel intuition.
Balanced state of mind. See divine perfection in all things. Devotion.

Blue (Turquoise stone) = Throat - Ability to verbalize. Expressing truth through
power of the spoken word.

Green (Peridot stone) = Heart - Release emotionally suppressed trauma. Soul/Heart
consciousness. Expressing love in action.

Yellow (Citrine stone) = Solar Plexus - Assimilation experience. Digestion. Positive
use of personal power. Manifest goals.

Orange (Carnelian stone) = Sacral - Utilization of creative forces into all aspects of
being. High soul procreation. Direct self toward devotion.

Red (Garnet stone) = Base - Ground spirit forces in body. Gain ability to work
lovingly on the physical plane.

I hand made the pendant and embellished with the gemstones listed above.  The clay
is white with details done in black paint. The finished piece was then given a clear
coat to seal in the paint. The backside is plain.

Pendant measures 3 and 7/8 inches tall from top of bail to bottom point, or 97
millimeters. The pendant measures 2 and 1/4 inches across at widest point or 58
millimeters. Pendant measures about 3/8 of an inch at most narrow point, or 12mm.
Sterling silver bail and jump ring.
Can be worn on ribbon or chain as shown.
