Manufacturer: Peter Stone Jewellery
Product Code: TPD2926
Size: 3.2 cm from top of loop to tip of foot. Broomstick is 2.7 cm (about an inch). Polished really well on the front. The reverse side is flat (ie. not hollowed out) and has the normal 925 silver markings there.
Here is an interesting pendant! Even though it is of reasonable size (1 inch from head to toe), it does have a dainty feel to it. When you look at it from afar, the first thing that strikes you is the hair and the pointing of the legs.
In the tiniest of writing on her legs there are the words "Salem Sexy Witch". But you might need a magnifying glass to read them. It's not your most traditional pendant maybe, but does have an audacious spirit!
More About the Symbol of the Witch
Being a witch and practicing witchcraft is a way of life, not a religion. It's based on a belief in nature and the desire to follow the Old Ways. Witches recognise the divine within themselves and have many strands of belief and tradition. They're ordinary people, not scary beings with strange, mystical powers, and have the same abilities as everyone else. However, they encourage the development of extra skills, such as spells, healing and psychic abilities, and it's these activities that are often misconstrued.
Being a witch hasn't always been an easy task. From the 13th to 18th centuries in Western Europe, witches were regarded as being people who misused supernatural powers. They were often seen as servants of the devil, with a scary and harmful way of life. Witches became persons to be fearful of and many suffered the trauma of being burnt at the stake for their beliefs and abilities. When the witchcraft hysteria was in full swing, witches got blamed for every unexpected occurrence, from crop failures, to droughts, floods, accidents and numerous natural disasters.
Witches beliefs are diverse and depend on the particular tradition they follow. However, some common principles include:
The three fold law - that one's actions return three times over. For example, an act of kindness produces three times much as kindness.
The idea that everyone is responsible for his or her own actions.
Just as with other beliefs, witches have their own special celebrations. There are eight major events in the year, termed sabbats (Beltane, Litha, Lammas, Mabon, Samhain, Yule, Imbolc and Ostara).
Despite many misconceptions, witches don't fly broomsticks and aren't always accompanied by black cats, although many of course do choose to have furry feline friends!
More About Peter Stone Jewellery
The Peter Stone Company purchases raw silver and produces their own true .925 sterling silver alloy in their own factory. All rings are cast to size and craftsmen cut and inlay each stone for a perfect fit. Every piece of jewellery created is hand polished not tumble polished, which leads to a high quality finish that is noticeably different.
Peter Koslowski had been working on merchant ships since 1983 while living in Sri Lanka and was fortunate to be exposed to an abundance of precious stones and he began to purchase and trade them, as well as silver. During this period he also studied gemology and jewellery making in a number of countries. This then lead to the founding of the Peter Stone Company in 1992 in Bangkok, Thailand, where he still resides.
