Antique Skeleton Key with Winged Heart and Quartz Crystal Point Pendant
I attached a natural quartz crystal point to an antique skeleton and then added a silver plated heart with wings pendant and silver gears. This comes with a 24 inch gunmetal chain. The gears are loose on the ring and form different patterns.
A key symbolizes the opening and closing of power. It can represent the thirst for knowledge and understanding as well as the simple seeking and curiosity of a child. A key can unlock the mind or the heart. It can also provide protection by the symbolic locking out of evil and negative influences.
Quartz crystal is the most abundant gemstone in the earth's crust. It is found on every continent. Clear quartz is considered a power stone and can enhance the metaphysical properties of other stones. Quartz Crystal has a similar vibration as humans. Using a crystal to meditate and wearing or keeping a crystal helps to a better understanding of yourself.
Quartz amplifies and directs energy and builds energy pathways. It can strengthen the energies of anything it is put with, and can be used to channel energy and send it out to other stones. The resonating quality is the reason that quartz was originally used in radios and other transmitters, and manufactured crystals are still used in electronic devices today.
Most cultures have used the heart symbol in some form. It is considered to be the center of thought, emotion, and the soul; the very center of one's being. Wings symbolize freedom from earthly restraints and the ability to rise above the mundane world. They represent our aspirations to achieve the highest accomplishments and victories. Wings can also be transformational, expressing our desire to reach a previously unattainable state.
Combining antique items like skeleton keys with items like crystals is something that I think makes each item stand out. I like the idea of being able to recycle vintage items and turn them into something new. It is recycling in its finest form.
Many of the items I use are in vintage or antique condition and may show a small amount of wear. Some of these pieces may still retain hard edges due to the nature of the objects used such as gears. Wear with care.
