Goddess jewelry

By on Sunday, August 01, 2010 5 Comments

In many ancient cultures, goddesses sometimes represented Earth, motherhood, home, love and life. The goddess theme for jewelry is still popular today.

Yol Swan is the artisan behind Sacred Jewelry and Yoga Designs whose stunning art silver or precious metal clay work beautifully highlights the goddess theme.

How did she personally come to select this theme?  I was really impressed with her profound explanation, "My interest in spirituality lead me to not just the goddess theme, but to that of self-exploration and self-inquiry.  I believe that God is within, so my designs are an expression of that perception and are meant to invite others into exploring life from a more mystical perspective as well.  Hopefully, my designs will uplift the spirit and motivate self-awareness, which is what "Awaken the Goddess Within..." really means, and by that I am trying to convey that beauty and power come from within each and everyone." Something to think about, for sure.

Catch up with Yol on her regular Sacred Jewelry blog. As she is deeply interested in spiritual tools for self-healing and inner peace, she also writes another about yoga philosophy and poetry.

  1. Ohhh myyy!!! I just MELTED! I want them ALL!!! This is kinda why I picked "Freyja" as the name for my jewellery. They were pretty enough on a display or on my table, but to see them on a WOMAN...was something else altogether. It was the woman wearing them that made them beautiful. I am DYINGGG to try precious metal clay. Couldn't ask for better inspiration than these pieces.

  2. These pendants are truly beautiful. I have not started my journey using PMC yet but now it is high on my list.

    Her designs are very inspiring. I will have to check out her other works.

  3. I think many people are inspired to consider PMC after seeing her remarkable work. Me, included!

  4. And don't forget all of those godesses' lamp work bead makers create, examples can be seen at
