St. Hildegarde of Bingen Pendants
I have created a new line of pendants to honor St. Hildegarde of Bingen and being a member of Hilde Girls - an amazing group of women that sing the sacred chants of St. Hildegarde.
The heart symbolizes how much we LOVE to sing inspiring music, especially the songs of St. Hildegarde.
The feather represents St. Hildegarde's most famous quote:
"I am a feather on the breath of God."
St. Hildegarde was an 11th century mystic saint. The things she accomplished as a woman during that time period are nothing more than miracles. She wrote a book on how to heal by using natural herbs; she wrote music; she was an accomplished artist; and had amazing spiritual visions and mystical experiences.
These pendants are handset and glazed. Each is unique as I create different background designs with crystals, prints, and combining different metals of gold, silver and copper. The above photo is just one version.
Contact me directly if you are interested in purchasing. I should have these up on my Etsy on-line shop for purchase in the next week.
By the way, you are invited to our Hilde Girl Performance on Sunday, April 19th at 6PM at the Monarch Event Center. We do one performance a year and it sells out every year. This year we are raising money for American Gateways. During the second half of our performance, we will feature a women's drumming group and sing many African chants that will get you out of your seat and moving. It's not all sacred chant! And there will be a silent auction to die for!!!! I have created a unique pair of St. Hildegarde earrings especially for that auction. View the sidebar for more details and purchasing tickets. Hope to see you there!
