This pendant is one of a series of unique works I created depicting variations of the Flower of Life pattern.
I handcut this sterling silver Flower of Life pattern using a tiny sawblade, (no casting or laser cutting!) inlayed the Tree of Life as brass dots into the ebony backing and riveted it together with sterling silver rivets.
The Flower of Life is an ancient geometrical 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. The centre of each circle is on the circumference of the six surrounding circles of the same diameter.
The Tree of Life diagram from the Qabalah fits perfectly over the Flower of Life Pattern, as shown in this pendant.
