The Family Jewels ~ The Adoration of Glut

 

 

 

As you all know Loki bade me make a collection for His Family.  I have posted Sigyns Aqua and that design has found its home in a Devotees home.  This piece, for Glut has a very special place for me since She Claimed me.  She wrapped Her Self around me as a blanket of the sunrise. .Tthe colors of the night sky coming to the light of dawn…. made with peacock pearls, blue swarovski crystals, blue niobium rings, copper rings, copper wire and purple blue niobium wire and 3 azotic Topaz Stones

Sigyns Pendant

Sigyns Aqua

Let me preface by saying that all of my work is devotional and dedicated to the dwarves ancestors and gods.  When I made this years Yule piece my Beloved said “yes please the family wants”  So I set about trying to find the right stones to use for this project.  I found an oblique trillian cut aquamarine that screamed out for Sigyn’s design.  I wanted it to be simple yet elegant but also a powerful statement (despite the fact that I knew this piece would craft itself through my hands instead of my hands crafting it into something else) and convey Sigyns beauty, grace, power and strength.

 

This is her design

Sigyns Aqua

 

THe only way I can really explain why this is for Her is that the Blue as pale as it is seems to fit her calm soft beauty, and quite simply when i ‘showed’ the stone to Her it brought a smile to Her face.  It occured to me after the fact that it was somehow appropriate that I used a Japanese weave for the blue rings as her clam quiety patience and serenity remind me very much of Quan Yin.  Once the piece was completed I did show it to Her and dedicate it to Her as well.

Ash, Flame, Ember and Glow

Glowing

Heavy with Them

smoke and darkness and flame

and Light and pain

and joy

unbounding joy

 

Tears and darkness

lava

molten it flows from The Depths

 

The Earth

She catches the flame

Lights up and burns

Burns

to the highest peak

 

Darkness Fades

light kisses the shore

smoke clears 

wind blows the ash

 

Two Saplings entwined

 

Ashes

 

and

 

Embers

 

Shrine to Glut

I have had a good deal of Gnosis with this too often forgotten Goddess/being.  She was Loki’s First Wife and bore Him Two daughters.  She has Claimed me as much as the Rest Of Them have, quite possibly more…

May the caress of Dawns Glow warm your in the coldness and bring light to your dark…
