|Oberon and Morning Glory in jewels|
I think it's quaintly anachronistic and ever so slightly delicious in an "every woman's a goddess" kind of way. Because, as the song goes, I enjoy being a girl. There is an old world charm when anyone puts forth the effort to dress the part.
I was not given these particular 'jewels' by a king; in fact, I gave them to myself...because I'm worth it Especially when I am channeling my inner Goddess during a ritual, and even if it's an occasion where I am celebrating solitary...both She Of Many Names and I deserve to feel like a queen...because in that moment, that's what we are. There are no diamonds shining among my jewels:they are mostly semiprecious stones set in silver, but each piece adds layers of meaning. If I, in fact, become the Goddess during ritual, have I not earned the right to adornment?
There are those in the pagan community who scoff at the idea of Witch Jewels. Jewels do not make the Witch,they say... and I agree. What wearing these particular pieces of jewelry does, however, is make me feel special...and magickal.
My elemental cross circlet is set with malachite, yellow quartz,carnelian, turquoise and amethyst. I love the buzzy vibration I get from the combined energy of those particular stones, especially when they're amplified by the clear quartz point earrings I usually wear with it. I feel I am a higher version of my feminine self at that vibration, and I am more womanly. The lovely Maiden shines, the Mother becomes Queen, and the Crone becomes Queen Mother. It is for love of them-and not for the adoration of me-they are worn.
