"Sedna" bracelet

It was really hard for me to think of a name for this one, but I finally settled for "Sedna", since I wanted something dark-ominous-sea-goddessy-like. :))) Anyway, in Inuit mythology, Sedna is the sea goddess of the marine animals, especially mammals such as seals. She lives in and rules over Adlivun, the Inuit underworld. The legends that speak of her all give different versions of her fate, but all agree that she descended into the depths of the ocean and became the Goddess of Sea Creatures. As such, she became a vital deity, worshipped by hunters who depended on her goodwill to supply food.
The "Sedna" bracelet is made of freshwater peacock pearls and iolites, nested between Abalone shell nuggets, all wrapped with sterling silver wire.
