Polymer Clay - Talisman Pendant
"Sohalia"

"Sohalia" is a Sanskrit word that means "Moon Glow"
This pendant is a beautiful talisman representing Goddess Moon.

The moon is a feminine symbol, universally representing the rhythm of time. The phases of
the moon symbolize immortality and eternity, enlightenment or the dark side of Nature
herself. It might reflect inner knowledge, or the phases of man's condition on earth, since it
controls the tides, the rains, the waters, and the seasons. It is the middle ground between the
light of the sun and the darkness of night, and thus often represents the realm between the
conscious and the unconscious. The moon is a symbol of the soul, the capicity for reflection
and adaptation.  

Moon Goddess has a spiral on her Third Eye.
The spiral represents many things:
The sacred personal journey within. Evolution and holistic growth, Letting go, surrender,
release. Awareness of the one within the context of the whole.
Connectivity and union with cosmic energies. Revolutions of time, stars, planets and the way
of natural progress.

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 face of the Moon Goddess with  of
the rainbow Chakra colors. The back is painted black and the entire piece was glazed after
the baking process.

There are 27 Turquoise stones surrounding the design. Which represent the Moon's monthly
phases and cycles.
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 3/8 inches.
It hangs from a beautiful braided cord of exotic Sari silk ribbons and lush hand spun yarn.
The cord measures about 15.5 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 Crown, Third Eye, and Heart Chakras:
The Crown Chakra is connected to Personal identification with Infinite and Oneness with
God. Peace. Wisdom
The Third Eye Chakra is connected to Clearing subconscious to channel intuition.
Balanced state of mind. Seeing Divine perfection in all things and Devotion.
The Heart Chakra is connected to Releasing emotionally suppressed trauma. Soul/Heart
consciousness and Expressing love in action.

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.
