The Myth of Caer and Aengus:
This is a very condensed version of the myth. Caer Ibormeith was a Celtic goddess of dreams and prophecy. She often took the form of a swan with a golden necklace. One night she visited the Celtic god of love and beauty, Aengus, in his sleep, where he fell in love with her. When he awoke, he sought out her father for permission to woo her. Her father told Aengus that he could marry her if he could pick out Caer from a group of 150 swans on the lake. He found her and called her to him, and asked her to be his wife. She agreed wholeheartedly, on the condition that he, too, turn into a swan. And so together they flew over the lake, singing a song so sweet that it lulled everyone who heard it to sleep for three days.
This pendant is a reproduction of my painting "Caer and Aengus" in a tiny vintage-style pewter bezel, layered over with uv-protected resin. It is strung on a dark red organza and waxed thread ribbon necklace that's 19" long, with a 2 inch extender and lobster claw clasp. This is handmade by the artist and is made-to-order. Please allow an extra 3 to 6 days for the product to be prepared and shipped.
I read this story and just had to buy this necklace as a Mother's Day gift for my daughter in law. While I didn't get a chance to see it in person, she really loved it and said it was "awesome". I'm so impressed with Allie's work; its all gorgeous. She also went above and beyond to get the gift delivered across the country to my daughter in law with less than a week's notice for Mother's Day. Next time, I'm buying for me! :)
