Handcrafted from an antique intaglio from the 1700-1800's, this talisman features Thorvaldsen’s "Night" scene of Nyx , Goddess of the Night, carrying her children, Sleep and Death, and is accompanied by an owl.
For some that experience pain in the day, the night and Nyx represent a welcome relief. For others, night is a frightening time where you never know what is lurking in the shadows and Nyx symbolizes fear of the unknown.
The bronze talisman is just over 1” round and hangs from a 14k gold-filled short-long cable chain with a lobster clasp closure. The entire necklace measures 18” long.
Each piece of jewelry from The Silver Acorn comes packaged in a tasteful gift box with a meaning card ready for gift-giving.
Handcrafted in my studio in Spokane, Washington, each symbolic wax seal item from The Silver Acorn is hand-stamped in reclaimed fine silver or bronze and will be slightly different and uniquely yours.
