Clay, Crystal, and Gemstone - Whale Tail Necklace
"Mahina"

"Mahina" is a Hawaiian name for "Moon Glow"

The whale is a strong totem. It represents emotional creativity, well-being, nurturing, and
emotional depth. Those who are drawn to whale energy will tend to be incredibly deep in
sensitivity.
A whale totem can help with many things, as whales are masters of:
Navigation: Moving through emotional depths.
Communication: Effectively expressing emotional experiences.
Conservation: Using emotional energy for fuel and not being consumed by emotional floods.

In many sects of Native wisdom, the whale is symbolic of the beginning, the creation of all
life on earth as we know it. Many cultures around the globe associate themes of creation,
birth and rebirth with the whale. Other symbolic suggestions to add to whale totem meaning
include:
Deeper Awareness, Cosmic Consciousness, Emotional Rebirth and Understanding,
Nurturing and Devotion to Community, Appreciation for Beauty, (especially song and
dance), and The Importance of Balance (emotional and otherwise).

I made this pendant with polymer clay, a beautiful Quartz crystal point,
and the following gemstones:

Green Aventurine: Is said to benefit one in all areas of creativity, and
imagination, as well as intellect and mental clarity. Lore says that it enhances prosperity
and brings career success. It is a gentle stone energetically that gives a sense of calm and
balance and enhances happiness. It is a stone of positive out-look, courage,
and inner strength.

Amethyst: Is known as a dream stone. The amethyst has long been used to open
the spiritual and psychic centers, making it one of the power stones. It is also used as
a meditation aid when worn as a necklace. The amethyst symbolizes piety, humility,
sincerity and spiritual wisdom.

Garnet: This stone is said to be a stone of purity and truth as well as a symbol of
love and compassion. It will helps with depression, self-esteem, one's own security
level and spiritual awareness. This stone is also said to bring constancy to
friendships and to be helpful for stimulating success in business.

Turquoise: Is a stone of protection, good fortune, friendship, peace, healing, wisdom.
Turquoise is one of the oldest amulets, and was also known as a symbol of wealth in many
ancient cultures. If given a turquoise by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer
from negative energy. It also brings peace to the home. Turquoise carries great wisdom of
basic truth within it.

Quartz Crystal: Quartz Crystal Points have great energy for Healing,  and Energy or
Spiritual work. Quartz amplifies energies of other stones around it or other stones used with
it. Quartz Crystal points are especially useful for healing tools.

The design is done with golden copper colored clay, giving the piece almost an aged leather
kind of look that I LOVE! I finish the piece with a bit of hand painting touches and a final
glaze.

This piece is a nice size, a definite totem statement! :)
The tail span is 2 and 7/8 inches and the height is about 3 and 3/8 inches, from top of crystal
point to bottom of tail fins.
The gemstones have a sterling silver open bezel behind them.
The chain is a base metal and it is included.
