“SilKIN” is my favorite collection of adornments to date.
Every inch of these talismans has been pored over, and imbued with intention, care, and connection to the natural world. I believe there is such a portal to the world of spirit - through the lens of nature.
This talisman features a Herkimer Diamond, sourced directly from the miner a few short hours from where I live. Herkimers form naturally with this rare, double-terminated shape, and are treasured worldwide for their high vibration. Herkimers work with the highest spiritual vibrations, activating your upper chakras, and attracting angelic presence. They are also said to be especially effective for dreamwork, and energy healing.
The cording began life as recycled sari silk - cut into strips, prepared for natural dye, and in this case, dipped into Sumac berry infusion with mottling of iron gray. After the lengthy dye process, I twisted the silk into cording - creating a secure yet adjustable closure with a tassel-like finish.
The piece is designed to be worn long, or easily adjusted for a higher-sitting necklace. This piece will even wrap twice around the neck, and can be worn on the wrist as well. These are excellent layering choices, sitting beautifully with other stones or plain chain, giving a fun play of textures.
