Product Description

Diana the Archer Necklace

protectress of animals, the wild forest, strength

Handmade from sterling silver and 18k gold, Diana the Archer bends her golden bow beside her deer companions.  Her body is carved from a recycled piano key, and her features delicately scrimshawed by hand.  The necklace is reversible - showing the natural stone on the back - and beaded with natural pearls.  Diana was fiercely indepedent and strong, but also gentle and nurturing; she reminds us of the feminine strength to be found in love.  She measures 1.7" x 1.2".

Each goddess necklace is signed on the bottom by the artist, with an easy-to-use sterling silver and gemstone box clasp.  The standard beading length is 19" but can be strung to any length.




Warranty Information

Diana, also known as Artemis by the ancient Greeks, is one of the most powerful female figures in mythological history. The virgin goddess of animals, she lived in the untamed wilderness with her band of wood nymphs, honoring the sacred balance between woman and nature. As the protectress of the forest, she loved all living creatures, with cats and deer being especially sacred to her. Diana also loved the moon, just as her twin brother Apollo loved the sun: together creating the sacred balance of dark and light seen throughout all cultures. Diana demonstrates the two sides of all women: the nurturing helper and the fierce protectress.

On the front of the necklace, Diana the Archer draws back an arrow on her golden bow. Two wild deer sit beside her, under her protection as goddess of the forest. She wears a crown of stars to symbolize her connection with the moon.
