Night Thistle is a brand new design! Night Thistle is inspired by my home in the Rocky Mountains where the Summers are filled with giant thistles as tall as a person. There is something haunting and beautiful about a prehistoric plant covered in thorns capturing the endless attention of tiny bees and delicate butterflies. Insects of all varieties literally swarm the fluffy purple tops of the thistles. To capture their beauty, I’ve depicted the Night Thistle under a crescent moon and starry sky in the Art Deco style which influences me so greatly. Unbeknownst to most, the Thistle is actually a relative of the Sunflower. In ancient France, the thistle was called both the “Herb of Witches” as well as “Flower of the Sun”. They believed that witches could not look into the sun (as thistles do) so thought of them as an icon to ward off evil. To the Celts, the thistle was a symbol of durability, strength, determination, and devotion. To the Victorians, it was a talisman for warding off unwanted meddling; a symbol of protection. In metaphysical circles, thistles are used for protection, prosperity, endurance, and vitality.
Fringed Rollerball Necklaces feature my signature chain fringe, inspired by the fringe jewelry of the roaring 20’s. Fringe is found in two different styles; either diamond cut chain or bar chain. Each strand is held perfectly with tension so they’re never out of place! At the end of each chain is a sterling silver raindrop charm with a fully dimensional bee focal.
The Crystal featured on this Rollerball Necklace is Super Seven. Crystals and stones found within my collections are gem-quality specimens curated by artisanal lapidaries and family operated mines. These crystals were curated especially for my rollerball necklaces.
Super Seven Super Seven is an extremely rare mineral with seven crystals in one. The crystals are Amethyst, Cacoxenite, Goethite, Lepidocrocite, Rutile, Smoky Quartz, and Quartz (which all the minerals are usually naturally encased in). This unique mineral only has one small locality in the entire world, and that mine is currently flooded and underwater— but some very exclusive premium pieces still exist! In Metaphysical circles, Super Seven is the key ingredient to accessing the spirit realm and unlocking the ancient knowledge within. The high frequency of this stone helps one attune their energy to that of the Cosmos, allowing one to better understand their celestial purpose. Super Seven is believed to connect us with our past lived experiences. It is thought that past lives contain wisdom carried over multiple lifetimes. The unique blend of minerals in Super Seven helps to unlock your hidden internal wisdom.
Rollerball Necklaces are customizable in length and coupled with a sterling silver chain. Chains feature a .925 diamond cut. Full Metal Rollerball Necklaces come with a 2ml bottle wrapped in solid silver. Necklaces arrive with a roller since oils are the most common use, but are entirely optional and can be sealed with anything of your choosing! Necklaces are further customizable by removing the roller from the bottle and many customers have opted to use their necklaces for keepsakes, specimens, or memorials. Bottles are shown with an inert carrier, but essential oils are not included. Rollerball necklaces are refillable and coupled with a refill/care kit. If you would like to purchase more bottles in other sizes or colors find glass bottles here or consider adding extra crystal energy with a gemstone roller bottle here. Full Metal pieces are interchangeable with any bottle or necklace from Bead and Bones.
