Yemaya, Goddess of the Ocean by KellyMorgenJewelry Yemaya, Goddess of the Ocean by KellyMorgenJewelry
Yemaya, Goddess of the living Ocean, is the source of all waters. As all life is thought to have begun in the sea, so all life is held to have begun with Yemaya. She is motherly, protective, and cares deeply for her children, comforting them and cleansing them of sorrow. She is said to be able to cure infertility in women in addition to protecting ships traveling on the sea. Yemaya rules over the surface of the ocean, where life is concentrated, and forms a balance with the god Olokin who rules the depths of the ocean and the unconscious.


On the front of the pendant, Yemaya is seen in the guise of a mermaid, gazing out to sea to protect the ships coming into harbor. She wears a crown of starfish, and the two nautilus shells above her symbolize the life and fertility she bestows upon the ocean. On the back, the deep rich colors of auburn, purple, and brown swirl together, representing the dark sea god Olokin and forming a balance between the feminine and masculine powers of the sea.

Priced at $690
