For my birthday (which occurs on Friday!) I received this wonderful necklace. It is called a "talisman" necklace and is made from an old wax seal, said to be from the 19th century.
The necklace is from a Vancouver company named Pyrrha, (which also, oddly, has a shop in L.A.). Do check out their website and wonderful things.
My pendant has an image of a phoenix on it and the words below "Que Sera Sera" (which means "whatever will be, will be"). I find this very funny because I am not a "que sera sera" person. If anything, I am a certifiable control freak.
I do, however, like the imagery of the phoenix (rebirth, rejuventation). I think that is a very powerful suggestion, to rebirth myself in some aspect of my life.
Perhaps I am meant to be re-born as an easy-going, relaxed, laid-back "que sera sera" type of woman in my next decade?
I like that thought!
