Pendant: shiva's eye shell, bali sterling silver
chunky sea coral
bali sterling silver toggle
The Hindu god Shiva is said to know and see everything. His third eye has the power to burn away evil -- the unnecessary -- to clear a path toward newness.
At the center of this piece is a beautiful slice of Shiva's Eye shell set in a frame of Bali silver that is hinged to an elegant openwork flower. This pendant hangs from a selection of of black onyx in three shapes and sizes -- pillows, rounds, and nuggets -- and two chunky slices of deep-sea coral. A whorl of silver, which echoes the central pattern anchors the closing toggle.
In many cultures a swirling pattern represents the infinite, the never-ending cyclic process of life. It's a favorite of mine as it illustrates hope and endless possibilities, and a spiritual enthusiasm for the unknown.
