Silver Star Sundial with Hourglass Pendant Necklace
I attached a pewter sundial cabochon to an antiqued silver star setting. I added a tiny oxidized silver alloy moon and star to the bail and an hourglass with purple sand to the bottom of the star. This comes with a 24 inch oxidized silver plated chain.
The moon and star symbols have been used together for thousands of years by many different cultures. What better way for ancient people to bring their gods down from the heavens and hold them close to worship and cherish. These bright celestial bodies that stood in the sky night after night represented both consistency and the passage of time as their positions changed throughout the days and seasons of the year.
The star is a symbol of balance in the way that each element balances with the other. The upward point of the star represents Spirit. The other four points each represent an element; earth, air, fire, and water. The ancient Greeks believed that all of these reside in everything.
Purple is the color of Spirit. It is a power color and is often used for meditation and communication.
A sundial is a device that measures time by using a light spot or shadow cast by the position of the sun on a reference scale. The earliest known sundials discovered in archaeological digs date from circa 1500 B.C in both ancient Egypt and Babylonia.
