I am so in love with this carved Mother of Pearl Phoenix! Lustrous whites, iridescent pinks, subtle waves of green. Awesomely detailed, this Phoenix rises out of the flames, trailing its plume of gorgeous tail feathers behind it.

I'm kind of on a pendant and chain kick, and went that route with this one. I paired this fiery bird with my hand-linked, chainmaille-style copper and steel links. The chain is sleek and feels just as smoothly delicious as the pendant is deliciously detailed!

Measures just past 18 inches (45.72 cm) when clasped, lobster claw closure. The pendant is almost 1 1/2 inches long (45.72 cm). If you'd like a different length, just send me an Etsy convo. She is incredibly lightweight, you might even forget you're wearing her!












"The Phoenix is a bird of Greek and Egyptian mythology. The phoenix is said to have red and purple plumage (hence the name Phoenix, which comes from the Greek word for purple), although is has also been said to be gold or all the colors of the rainbow. The phoenix is a symbol of the sun, and every morning, Apollo, the sun god, would stop his chariot to listen to the phoenix singing as it bathed itself. The Egyptian version is seen as a heron, while the Greek version is seen as a peacock or an eagle.

Traditionally, there is only one phoenix at a time, and it lives for five hundred years. (There are many variations on this length, from 100 years to 1000. 500 is the number I've seen the most.) When it is near its death, it builds a pyre and sprinkles aromatic herbs over it, and then consumes itself in flames. Out of the ashes of this fire a new phoenix rises. This phoenix puts the ashes in an egg and carries it to Heliopolis, the city of the sun in Egypt, where it leaves the egg on the altar of the sun god, Re. Because of its life cycle, the phoenix is also a symbol of rebirth.

There are also mythological birds of other areas that have been called phoenixes. These include the Feng-huang of China, the Ho-Oo of Japan, the Roc of Arabia, and the Thunderbird of North America. "
