Horns of the moon. The Crescent moon. This is my minimalist interpretation of the traditional Lunitsa pendant, also called Lunula or Lunica. Historically a symbol of good luck and a happy life.
I forge my Lunitsa pendants on Mondays (Moon Day). I have an altar to the moon in my shop, and I made offerings to the moon and ask for the moon's blessing of this work. The offerings I made were of the oils of night-blooming plants, of silver, of incense, and of clear spirit. I invoked all the moon deities I work with, and chanted into each piece as I forged it a request for blessings from the moon, for protection, and for guidance both through and from darkness and the night as best suits the owner. I chanted runes of protection into it as well. Lastly, I quench the pendant in beeswax to give it a protective coating, which also gives it the black finish.
This pendant comes on a black deer skin lace cord approximately 32" long (hangs approximately 16"). The cord is double knotted to be adjustable. If you would prefer a vegan/nylon cord, please let me know and I'll be happy to send you the pendant with the preferred cord.
