This pendant is one of a series of unique collaborative works containing New Zealand Pounamu cabochons.
The Pounamu cabochon was carved by New Zealand carver Miki McPherson. The cabochon is concave which makes it see-through in the centre, allowing the Flower of Life design to show through to the front.
I handcut this sterling silver Flower of Life design using a tiny sawblade, (no casting or laser cutting!), and set a beautiful deep green Pounamu cabachon onto it using a lotus claw setting.
This piece is 4.5cm in diameter, and is hung on a 45cm long sterling silver chain.
The Flower of Life is an ancient Sacred Geometric design based around the circle. It is made up of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles that form a flower pattern with sixfold symmetry. This design contains ancient, theological value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time. It is a visual expression of the connections life weaves through all things. In sacred geometry the circle represents the sphere in 2 dimensions. It is one of the most universal symbol known to man and the ultimate representation of the unity and inseparability of all things.
