Venus, the revered goddess of love and beauty, holds a deep spiritual significance that transcends cultures and time. As the embodiment of love, she reminds us of the power of compassion and empathy in our interactions with others, fostering a sense of interconnectedness and unity among humanity. Her influence extends beyond mere romantic love, encouraging us to embrace universal love and compassion for all living beings.
Beyond her role in love, Venus is also associated with beauty and aesthetics. She teaches us to seek and appreciate beauty in all its forms, both in the external world and within ourselves. By recognizing and celebrating beauty, we connect with the divine essence present in every being and aspect of creation.
As the archetype of feminine energy, Venus empowers individuals, regardless of gender, to embrace their authentic selves fully. She encourages the cultivation of intuition, emotion, nurturing, and receptivity, qualities often associated with the divine feminine. In doing so, she helps to restore balance and harmony within us and in our relationships with others.
I created this version of Venus after coming across a statue of the Venus of Sinuessa. She is an ancient Roman marble statue dating back to the 1st century AD. It was discovered in the ancient Roman city of Sinuessa, located in present-day Italy, near the modern town of Mondragone.
After seeing her, I had to make her out of sterling silver and gold.
She comes strung on a gold vermeil chain, tiny strand of pearls, or small blue glass beads. She is so beautiful and I hope she reminds you of your divine feminine every time you wear her.
