The Celestial Serpent is the first edition of the Lumomancy Oracle system.
Handcrafted in your choice of sterling silver, gold vermeil or solid 14K gold.
This design will be limited to only 200 pieces ever!
Sales will be made by pre-order. Shipments will go out approximately 8 weeks after the pre-order has closed.
Orders close October 10th
The included cable chain is 24” long and comes with a 2” extender piece (for sterling and gold plate only). You can adjust the chain from 24” to 26”.
The spinner also comes off of the chain easily so you can put it on a different chain if you like.
The biggest difference between the sterling silver, gold plated, and 14K gold options (besides the price) is the care and maintenance required for each one.
I answered this question in depth in this video, or you can read the general info below.
Sterling silver will tarnish with time, but is easy to clean at home yourself. Either with a purchased dip cleaner or all natural products from your cupboard (instructions here).
Gold plating requires the most care and maintenance of the three finishes.
Gold plating, no matter how thick, will wear off in time. How quickly it wears depends on a lot of factors such as how well you care for it and your own body chemistry.
Gold plating must be protected from lotions, perfumes, sweat and water, and is more suited to occasional wear than everyday wear.
When you can see the silver through the gold plating, it’s time to have your piece replated. You can take it to a jeweller in your area or contact us for information.
Plating services start at $50 depending on the level of wear.
Solid gold is the easiest and most long lasting – it doesn’t tarnish and (since it’s solid throughout) the finish will never change.
You can wear solid gold in the shower or to sleep but should take it off when coming into contact with chemicals (such as swimming in a chlorinated pool) because chemicals can damage gold.
Since each piece is handcrafted, please allow 8 weeks before your order is shipped.
When your order is shipped you will receive a shipment confirmation email with your tracking number (if you chose tracked shipping at checkout).
We will do our absolute best to ensure that all orders are shipped out in plenty of time to arrive before the holidays.
However, we can’t be responsible for any postal delays or customs clearance delays.
If your order hasn’t arrived in the estimated time, please reach out to me and we’ll see what can be done.
I take credit card payments through square, Paypal, or you can pay in installments using Sezzle.
Confidence. Direction. Acceptance.
Empowerment comes from knowing that the answers you seek can be found within, if only you can see the way.
Too often you ignore your intuition, trying instead to find validation externally.
We created Lumomancy to reflect your own light, just as the moon reflects the sun, and illuminate the answers that you seek.
The power is in you, we simply show you how to find it.
Tory is an author, illustrator, and designer based in Toronto. She believes that divination is a powerful tool of creativity, clarity, and healing, and strives to create intuitive, accessible oracle systems for use in our modern cultural context.
Drawing from her many years of experience with fortune telling, Tory’s first modern divination system, the Tessera Oracle, was inspired by a blend of Tarot, runes, and other ancient oracle systems.
The Celestial Serpent expands on her desire to bring a beautiful, wearable fortune telling system that can be easily accessed at any time throughout your day.
Andrea is the designer silversmith of Andrea Shelley Designs. From her studio in Quebec she handcrafts powerful, meaningful jewelry that resonates deeply with the wearer.
She believes that jewelry, when worn purposefully, can have transformative powers. Her pieces go beyond decoration to help connect you to your inner self and focus your energies to your greatest strengths.
The Celestial Serpent spinner is the culmination of years of fine jewelry making expertise. From the moment you hold it in your hands, you will feel the energy and passion that went into its creation.
Two facets of manifestation.
Stars represent destiny and wisdom. The snake represents protection and rebirth.
Only when the spinner is in motion are we able to see them working in unison.
The Celestial Serpent is an object of power and a tool for self-discovery. It is both a talisman and an oracle.
When used as a talisman, The Celestial Serpent acts as a lens, focusing your energy and intentions towards a goal.
To do this while you’re wearing the necklace, take a breath, centre yourself and clear your mind. Lift the necklace, spin the spinner, and as it spins, let it drop onto your chest. The symbol that lands face-up is the aspect of the talisman that is manifesting.
When the Stars are manifested, the focus is on the universe influencing you. When the Snake is manifested, the focus is on your influence on the universe.
Lumomancy is a flexible oracle system that can be used in a number of ways. How you use it depends entirely on your purpose.
When you have straightforward questions, a single spin reveals a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer to offer guidance. If you desire further enlightenment on more complex issues, a multi-spin reading provides a deeper context and a fuller picture.
The included booklet contains full explanations of reading outcomes and how to use the Lumomancy system.
The Celestial Serpent spinner can be used alone or integrated with other systems such as Tarot or the Tessera Oracle.
Deepen your readings by adding Lumomancy to your practice.
Jewelry can help you live a better life!
I’ll take you through the science step-by-step. Learn how your brain works and why jewelry could be the missing link to becoming your best self.
