This pendant is one of a series of unique works I created depicting variations of the Flower of Life pattern.
I handcut these two layers of sterling silver and copper Scarab and Seed of Life pattern, and riveted them together with sterling silver rivets.
This piece is 3.5cm in diameter, and is hung on a 45cm sterling silver chain. It can be worn either way round, depending on your mood.
For the ancient Egyptians, the scarab beetle symbolized creation and was associated with the sun-god, Khepri, who rolled the sun across the sky every evening and emerged anew every morning.
The Flower of Life is an ancient geometric design based around the circle. It contains ancient, theological value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time. In this sense, it is a visual expression of the connections life weaves through all sentient beings, and it is believed to contain a type of Akashic Record of basic information of all living things. In sacred geometry the circle represents the sphere in 2 dimensions. It is the most universal symbol known to man and the ultimate representation of the unity and inseparability of all things. The Flower of Life pattern uses Pi to create the perfect balancing of spheres with sixfold symmetry.
