Ananke: The Protogenos (primeval goddess) of inevitability, compulsion and necessity. She emerged self-formed at the very beginning of time--an incorporeal, serpentine being whose outstretched arms encompassed the breadth of the universe. From the time she first appeared Ananke was entwined in the serpentine coils of her mate, the time-god Khronos. Together they surrounded the primal egg of solid matter in their constricting coils and split it into its constituent parts (earth, heaven and sea) and so brought about the creation of the ordered universe. Ananke and Khronos remained entwined as the cosmic-circling forces of fate and time--driving the rotation of the heavens and the neverending passage of time. They were far beyond the reach of the younger gods whose fates they were sometimes said to control.
Four retaining rings wired together using 28ga silver plated wire make up the framework for this elegant and unique pendant. At the very center a silver ratchet gear with a 5mm emerald ab Swarovski sew on crystal and a delicate black clock hand, at the top and side two small chrysolite opal sew on crystals, dangling on the side a 4mm chrysolite opal bicone and at the bottom an 11mm emerald crystal teardrop adds the finishing touch.
