This pendant is part of the Green Heart Collection, created entirely by hand in my studio in Emerald VIC.
I made this necklace by drawing five different designs onto sterling silver, cutting them out by hand with a tiny saw, and riveting them together with sterling silver rivets. I then set a beautiful deep green rose cut serpentine cabochon in the center of a Flower of Life design in the center. I used a file to engrave the lines of the feathers on the wings.
The winged sun is one of the oldest Egyptian symbols. It is usually a symbol of royalty, divinity and power, and can represent the soul and its eternity. It is often placed in temples as a memento to the people of their eternal nature. During the Middle Kingdom it evolved into a symbol of protection and became a popular protective amulet during the Ptolemaic Period. Because of its solar reference, it has been connected with the sun god, Ra.
