Ostara Quartz choker made with titanium coated quartz points and faceted Czech crystal beads. A beautiful choker with bright colours and sparkle to symbolise new beginnings, flowers and the awakening of nature.
The choker will not choke you as it is made with a full loop of memory wire plus an inch more for a comfortable fit that will sit just above your collarbone. This choker is finished off with a sterling silver hook and eye fastener to make it easy to put on (plus that adds a little to the size of the choker too). Made with bright, fresh colours with the added sparkle of Czech crystal beads. Perfect to wear with a floaty dress. A piece that will definitely be noticed. Not only is it pretty, it is very unusual too.
Ostara, or Eostre or Eastre, is the Germanic Goddess of spring and dawn. She is only mentioned once in scholarly writings of the period – Bede the monk states that during Eostremonath (the old Anglo-Saxon names for April), the pagan Anglo-Saxons held festivals in her honor. (Two hundred years later in Germany, in his Life of Charlemagne, a monk named Einhard gives the old name for April as Ostaramonath.) She is also mentioned in a number of inscriptions in Germany, and the modern holiday of Easter – originally the name for the spring Equinox, but later subsumed to the Paschal calendar for the Christian resurrection holiday – is named for her. The name “Eostre” (Old Germanic “Ostara”), is related to that of Eos, the Greek goddess of dawn, and both can be traced back to a Proto-Indo-European goddess of dawn.
