Mimir was known in Norse mythology as a counselor of the gods whose home was a mystical well at the base of Yggdrasil, the world tree. Odin, the all-father, sacrificed an eye in order to drink from Mimir's well, and in so doing, gained wisdom and knowledge.
Wisdom gleaned through experience often comes at a price. Sometimes the price is our energy and time; in other instances insights and increased awareness happen through personally painful experiences such as loss and grief. The Well of Mimir for me has always represented my own psyche, and in particular the darker depths that sometimes go years without being pierced by light. It's a quiet place I sometimes visit to reflect when I'm wrestling with something powerful and am seeking direction. At other times, the well is a basin for my tears of pain: once I can still my heart, I peer into the well to see what I might learn from that sacrifice.
The Mimir Pendant, part of the Story Pendant Collection features a thick oval Labradorite cabochon, full of deep blues and blacks. Like a deep well, sometimes it reflects back shadows; at other times when light strikes it, you will see brilliant blues. Unlike some pendants that feature thin, lightweight stones, this stone has sufficient weight to remind you of its presence and will serve to remind you of the wisdom you have gathered through experience and self-sacrifice throughout your life. Wrapped in argentium silver Viking wire knitting, you can wear it with pride and draw comfort from it as well. It measures 1.75 inches in length and is an inch wide at the fullest point. It comes on a 20 inch sterling silver chain.
This one-of-a-kind pendant comes with a matching chain in a box, ready for gifting.
