Elen of the Ways
This piece is made with nephrite jade and garnet. The design is of a horned goddess who is sometimes known as Elen of the Ways. She is a rather modern interpretation of a Goddess but has deeper roots in stories of a woman named Elen, or Helen, who created roadways in Wales. She represents the power of women to take action and not just be passive and “feminine”. As such she represents the union of horned God and earth Goddess within us all. A wild one of the forest pathways and journeys into the wilderness of nature and our own spirit. Nephrite jade is a stone of nature connection, abundance, wild energy, and personal growth. Garnet brings inner strength, determination, health, vitality and the energy to act.
