Kukulkan Quetzalcoatl Power Necklace| Back to the Ancestors
From the signature line "Back to the Ancestors" this power piece was created in 2017 as the first ofrenda to the ancestors that came to me in my dreams. I dreamt of rotten ofrendas, the temples of Teotihuacan, and the Maya twins Xbalanque and HunahPu. The creation of this body of work has lead me on an unbelievable journey back to the motherland and the reclamation of my name and path. All of the jewelry in this line has been blessed at sacred sites, ceremony, and in danza over their 6 year pilgrimage. This body of work marks a beginning to the line of work I will be pursuing here onward.
This necklace was completely handsculpted with copper grown slowly over 120 hours to immortalize it. The image is a ode to the carving on the side of the Temple of the Feathered Serpents in Xochicalco. It is encrusted with garnet, symbolizing ancestral blood and love, and with a rainbow moonstone eye. It is beaded with jade, amber, turquoise, and tiger's eye. It features a huge Quantum Quattro, a stone comprised of 5 minerals with shattuckite, chrysocolla, dioptase, smoky quartz and malachite. A powerful healer that ensures balance.
This one of a kind necklace is a Power Piece, designed to help you connect with the cosmic wisdom of Quetzalcoatl and lead you down the healing path of your ancestors. You are taking home a piece of art, and a piece of my heart. Blessings.
