Guiding light Necklace


Now voyager, sail thou forth, to seek and find.
-Walt Whitman

This necklace was designed with historical ship figure heads in mind. In Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, it was once believed that spirits/faeries called Kaboutermannekes (gnomes, little men, faeries) dwelt in the figureheads. The spirit guarded the ship from sickness, rocks, storms, and dangerous winds. If the ship sank, the Kaboutermannekes guided the sailors' souls to the Land of the Dead. To sink without a Kaboutermanneke condemned the sailor's soul to haunt the sea forever, so Dutch sailors believed.

Wear this necklace and let it guide you from sickness, storms, and danger.

-A note about oxidization, It is kind of like tie-dye, each oxidization is a little different from the other! It is a chemical reaction on the silver. Oxidization will fade over time and pieces can always be re-oxidized!

This necklace was designed by me, inspired by ancient monsters, adventure, and the spirit of the sea. Sculpted by Hiroyuki Shambles in Japan, and cast by a local casting company here in Los Angeles, CA.

You can choose from 3 chain types, all are 18''. Made from Sterling silver.

Specifically designed to be unisex.

Sterling silver has very minimal upkeep! Just wet with water and wipe with a soft cloth.
