Hades - abundance
Matte ocean jasper and copper plated skulls. Ocean jasper is said to enhance self-insight. Named after the Greek God of the underworld. Hades is most often represented as a more mature man, bearded and holding a scepter, a two-pronged spear, a libation vase, or a cornucopia - symbolic of the mineral and vegetable wealth which comes from the ground.
Through the ages, beads have been used by nearly every culture as a form of art, prayer, a symbol of an individual’s social status, and as a medium of barter for supplies. Today and for the unforeseeable future, the art and love of beading will continue to be an important part of every culture worldwide.
