|Polymer Clay, Gemstone, and Copper Necklace - Altar Piece
"Spirit of Mary"
This is a special piece designed with a LOVE resonance. A particular energy and vibration
of unconditional love was created in this piece. Mary carried this vibration of love through
her life and she was filled with compassion. I wanted this piece to represent all of us, as
woman, as healers, we are Mary, we are love and compassion! As our world begins to
awaken and vibrate to higher energies, we need this unconditional love and compassion to
encompass us, so that we can pass this on to others and to the world. I have felt the call to
create these specific pieces of love. I bless and infuse them with healing and the prayers
that they might touch those who need it in their lives at this time, so that they may find
healing for themselves and in so doing, send healing to others and to this world.
I cleansed this piece with a Sage smudge ceremony. I filled it with Earth energy in a
beautiful ceremony and set the intentions of love and healing within it in prayer and with a
crystal tuning fork. I also placed the "Ohm" resonance into the piece with an Ohm tuning
fork. "Ohm" is the vibrational sound of the universe.
There are beautiful stones on a copper chain in this design that have specific meaning,
which information I have included below.
There is a hand painted heart design on the back of the pendant. Almost like a little secret
just for you, as this heart will be touching your body, and only known or seen by you as you
wear this piece. A soft and gentle reminder that you are the healer, the vessel in which to
be filled with love and spread it to the world.
I made this necklace reminiscent of a rosary style design, though not in specific for any one
religion, but mostly to show reverence for the spirituality, healing, and love behind the
creation of this piece.
Mary is made from polymer clay. On her body I embedded copper foil in a crackling patina
effect. After baking I hand painted and hand glazed the piece.
There is a beautiful hand painted heart on the back that I painted using the same color
Mary has beautiful wings on this piece that have an antiqued finish to them. The entire clay
piece is also surrounded by 27 crystals.
The pendant measures 4 and 1/8 of an inch tall by 2 and 1/2 inches wide. It measures about
1/2 an inch thick and thickest area.
The hand-made chain measures 30 inches total.
The stones I have included in this design are Turquoise, Coral, Jasper, Lepidolite, and
Here are the properties of each stone:

expressing truth through power of the spoken word.
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.
Coral: Is a good aid for meditation or visualization. It symbolizes life and blood force
energy. Red is also the color that represents Mary Magdalene in particular.
Red is also the color of the Root Chakra which is associated with grounding spirit forces in

between external activities and the internal response to these. It imparts a deep calm while
