The Radiance Pendant is being featured on the Syfy show Lost Girl, in it’s 4th season, as Lauren’s Pendant. This has resulted in sales from around the world, mostly Canada, US, UK, and Australia but other countries also. On the show the symbol has a very specific meaning to the wearer. I am curious about what this design symbolizes to those who are purchasing it because of the Lost Girl show. Does it have to do mostly with the show or something other than that?
The original intent of Radiance was to create a personal version of the Medicine Wheel or Sacred Hoop. The piece originates in the South and radiates out from the center.
“Among the Native American People, a child’s first Teaching is of the Four Great Powers of the Medicine Wheel. To the North is found Wisdom. The South is the place of Innocence and Trust. The West is the Looks-Within Place, which speaks to our introspective Nature. The East is the Place of Illumination, where we can see things clearly, far and wide….– from The Seven Arrows by Hyemeyohsts Storm
Radiance was used once as a t-shirt design for the Spruce Creek Gallery’s ‘Women in the Arts Festival’, a summer festival honoring women in the healing, visual and performing arts . Radiance has also has appeared as a tattoo on at least one excited woman who showed me her design. I enjoy getting photos from people who are actually using this symbol in ceremony. And yes, it is fun to watch its evolving journey on Lost Girl.
