Hera’s Thorns Peacock Necklace

This necklace was inspired by Hera, wife of Zeus and Queen of Olympos, the Greek Goddess (Her Roman counterpart is Juno) of marriage, queenship, women, childbirth, and families. Peacocks are one of her sacred animals. I tried to capture both her beauty and sovereignty, but also her “sharper” side that stood up and demanded the respect due to her and refused to sit idly by when she was scorned or mistreated.

Hera’s Thorns Peacock Necklace:

A gorgeous hand-painted Czech glass pendant mounted by hand on a gold-plated bail adorns a strand of amethyst, fuschia agate (dyed), green jade rounds, rainbow hematite, and “vitrail” finish Czech glass beads, with four 15mm long Czech glass “thorn” accents. Together the colors of this necklace remind me of the brilliant plumage of a peacock in the sunshine.

As always, hold and layaway are available for this item according to the policies here. Just message me on etsy and I’ll be happy to work with you to set up a plan.
