Product Description

The Muse Necklace

inspiration, creativity

Handmade from sterling silver and 18k gold, the Muse necklace shows the goddess crowned in laurel leaves with her hand over her heart. Her body is carved from a recycled piano key, and her features delicately scrimshawed by hand.  The necklace is reversible - showing the stone on the back - and beaded with natural gemstones.  The Muse is the source of all inspiration and creativity: she reminds us that art is anything we do with passion and skill, and we all have some type of art inside us.  She measures 1.8" x 1.1".

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

The Muse, also known as inspiration, can appear around all types of art. What is that makes your heart sing? There are countless forms of art: cooking, dancing, listening, throwing parties, raising children, loving, and countless other activities. We each have a type of art inside us and a Muse that awakens us. When your heart beats faster with excitement, she is there. When a new idea comes to you, she is there. We often don't recognize her, especially in subjects not considered traditional art, but we all have the capacity to be moved by her.

The source and wellspring of all inspiration, the Muses take their root in Greek mythology, depicted as nine water nymphs who serve as aids to all artists, authors, and creators. The Greek word mousa itself is derived from the root "mind," referencing the Muses' route to their chosen person's creativity: often through mental images, thoughts, or dreams. The Muse has appeared throughout history to all who heed her call.

"I am your own way of looking at things, the Muse said. When you allow me to live with you, every glance at the world around you will be a sort of salvation." ~ William Stafford
