From Yasmin Everley's Astrology collection, the pendant takes the form of a circle, which the Ancient Greeks considered the most geometrically perfect shape. It holds a cluster of the stars, accurately forming the constellation, which is held suspended in space by delicate wire. The chain is a rope chain, reminiscent of both the sailors who have used these stars to navigate through the centuries and our coiling strands of DNA.
In the Ancient Greek tale, Virgo is associated with the story of Demeter, the goddess of harvest, and her daughter Persephone. While Persephone was out gathering flowers, Hades abducted her and made her his wife. In her grief Demeter caused all the harvests to fail until Hades agreed to give her back for half the year and so the seasons were created.
