A Look Behind our Celestials Collection

We noticed that most Zodiac art and jewelry depicts the Zodiacs as astrological symbols or iconic animals. So we set out to represent the divine feminine in each piece and provide greater personal connection to these Celestial Goddesses. Every Zodiac has a corresponding constellation and the stories behind each is powerful, filled with divine Goddesses and tales of adventure in Greek mythology. So we crafted each Zodiac pendant with two sides, a delicate constellation on one side and an inspiring female interpretation on the other.
