Polymer Clay - Talisman Pendant

"Prinaka" is a Sanskrit word that means "She who brings Heaven to Earth"
This pendant is a beautiful talisman with many sacred symbols and meanings.

The center is a handmade glass cabochon that I made in gorgeous colors of our dear Mother
Earth. The design inside of the cabochon is a medicine wheel. This is a sacred symbol in the
Native American cultures used for healing and health, it symbolizes the cycles of life and
embodies the cardinal directions- North, East, South and West.
The Medicine Wheel is considered to symbolize peaceful interaction between the living
beings inhabiting the Earth. Its circle shows everything as part of a cosmic whole and
represents the balance between personal and natural powers. The wheel can be used for
self-realization, finding your purpose in life and bringing fulfillment and enlightenment into it.

The design around the center cabochon is that of a Lotus.
Throughout many cultures over time, the Lotus has been a powerful image and a spiritual
symbol. In Hindu, Buddhist and Egyptian religions, the lotus is considered a sacred flower.
Among it's many meanings and significance, the lotus is a symbol of "spontaneous"
generation, and so it also represents divine birth, spiritual development and creation itself.

I made this pendant with polymer clay and used metallic leaf on the design to create an
ancient relic kind of feel to this piece. I hand painted the Lotus in colors of the rainbow
Chakra. The back is painted black and the entire piece was glazed after the baking process.

There are 17 Turquoise stones surrounding the design.
Turquoise  is one of the oldest protection 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 and bring good fortune.
The turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home.
Turquoise carries great wisdom of basic truth within it.

The pendant has an approximate diameter of  2 and 3/4 inches.
It hangs from a beautiful braided cord of exotic Sari silk ribbons and lush hand spun yarn.
The cord measures about 14 inches on each side.

I love hiding meanings into the design during the creation process with symbols and colors.
I chose the colors of ribbons to correspond with the Heart and Solar Plexus Chakras:
The Heart Chakra is connected to releasing emotionally suppressed trauma. Soul/Heart
consciousness and Expressing love in action.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is connected to assimilation of experience. Digestion. Positive use
of personal power and Manifesting goals.

I cleansed this piece with a Sage smudge ceremony. I filled it with Earth energy in a
beautiful ceremony and set these intentions with it through prayer.
I also placed the "Ohm" resonance into the piece with an  Ohm tuning fork.
"Ohm" is the vibrational sound of the universe.
My wish is that this piece will be drawn to the person that needs it in their life at
this time to send healing and love out into our world.
