i created this pendant over the weekend for my sister in law, who is going through a tough time right now. we all have times in our lives when we need to really call upon our inner strength...but its at those times when we need it most that it can be the hardest to attain. sometimes we need a reminder of how strong we really are.

i tried to use symbols in this pendant that represent life and the human spirit, not just strength. the three symbols i used were the goddess Luna, an egg to represent new beginnings and a monarch butterfly to represent transformation.
when i look at this pendant, it reminds me of all the things i've been through and how, at the time, they just seemed so overwhelming. but i've overcome some difficult times and wouldn't be half the person i am if i hadn't. i think i'll create a few more of these pendants.
