I wrote a blessing for the passage of time to accompany this piece of work. It is included below. In the meantime, here are the details about this necklace:
It is fully hand crafted by me in my metalsmithing studio.
I drew the design and cut it out of silver by hand.
The pendant is a hollow form. It measures 5cm in diameter.
The chain is also fully handmade by me in sterling silver. I made every single jump ring and soldered every seem shut so it is built to last. The chain closes with a handmade hook clasp. The chain on this necklace is 20 inches long.
The stone is called 'howlite'. It is white with grey marbling through it. It measures 1cm x 1.3cm.

A Blessing for the Passage of Time
When you pause and notice the passage of time, may gratitude grow within you for all the experiences that have shaped your place in the here and now.
When the passage of time seems too quick, may you turn to seek the joy that your soul longs to inhabit. May the busy doing of life make way to the slow unfolding of being.
When you begin to feel the effects of aging, may you seize the opportunity to develop your capacity for compassion.
When you reflect on your life, may you look back with soft eyes of non-judgement in order to forgive. May you have the courage to attend to the memories that elicit shame. Wrap them gently in compassion. These experiences have shaped your beauty and deepened your soul. They are the gateway to the gift of transformation.
When you recognize within yourself a longing for change, may you learn to listen to that which you resist. What you have closed yourself to can reveal the answers to questions you didn’t know you had. This is the key to healing.
With each passing day, may wisdom expand your imagination and may wonder claim your mind. May you always be open to new possibilities.
May you soften into humility and embody the freedom that comes when you awaken to realize the vast insignificance and the incredible precious wonder that it is to be alive.
