With the holidays coming up, there’s a good chance some of you will be entering a house of worship (need we remind you the holidays aren’t all about getting the latest bargains at overcrowded malls and piped-in reindeer jingles?).
So in the spirit of symbolism, we were drawn to this Circle of Antiquity medallion/amulet charm necklace by Seattle-based jewelry and accessories designer Shannon Koszyk (pronounced Koh-zik). The antiqued necklaces features a blend of elements, including a Lotus center, Circle of Antiquity, Framed Cross, Mary medal, Bronze Maltese cross, recast vintage medal and African cross, all hanging off a rosary-style chain of gray freshwater pearls.
All of Koszyk’s pieces have a rich, artifact quality, much like her rings with Latin sayings and Joan of Arc-inspired pieces. All are sterling silver with bronze. Koszyk also makes incredible antiqued candles with medallions, hardware like drawer pulls and candle sticks.
So however you celebrate the holidays, think about getting in touch with your spiritual side. Or at least wearing some sort of amulet to protect you at those overcrowded malls!
