The Vigilant Peony necklace
Peonies were once planted to protect homes and dispel evil spirits, and were even thought to glow under moonlight. I created the Vigilant Peony as a charm to protect the wearer from misfortune and as a reminder to look out for each other. A shield to signify strength and protection is adorned with a watchful red peony inspired by Chinese cut-paper art and vintage Neighborhood Watch community signs. I added stars and a waxing crescent moon to remind us we all can bloom in darkness. Each necklace includes a lightning bolt charm for extra magic, and the gold version includes a brass safety whistle.
$5 from the sale of each necklace will support Hollaback!, an organization offering bystander intervention trainings to end harassment in all its forms and transform the culture that perpetuates hate and harassment.
Two different versions of the Vigilant Peony necklace are available:
• 18” silver-plated chain with a 1” silver-plated lightning bolt charm
• 24” gold-plated brass chain with a 1.75” solid brass safety whistle and a 1” gold-plated lightning bolt charm
Charms measure 1” including the loop at the top. Both chains are lead and nickel free with a lobster clasp. Each necklace is hand-assembled by me.
I ship orders of in-stock items via USPS First-Class Mail once per week from Portland, Oregon (t-shirts are shipped directly from Printful, a third-party production partner). Please be aware that due to unprecedented USPS delays, package deliveries may take longer than expected. First Class Mail packages sent within the U.S. can take up to 2-3 weeks (or longer) to arrive at their destinations. Due to USPS issues I am no longer offering shipping outside of North America during checkout. Please contact me for inquiries about international orders.
