The Light Within - Fine Silver, 24k Gold Pendant / Rutilated Quartz
*** This creation is only available as a modified commission order ***
Representing the ever-present inner peace that is the glow of the soul. The backdrop of the multitude of thoughts that can distract us from life as it unfolds.
From East to West, from North to South, one is only lost when a destination is intended. When the destination is the present, we find what was never lost, "The Light Within" - Styve
Hand formed and carved from .999 fine silver metal clay with an overlay of 24k Gold that was applied using the ancient Korean gilding technique of Keum Boo. The 24k Gold complements the gold flashes of the Rutile (Titanium dioxide) contained within this wonderful Rutilated Quartz crystal.
This Rutilated Quartz is an amazing gemstone with a clear transparency that highlights the golden flashes giving it an intriguing aura. Rutilated Quartz (like most crystals) are associated with the energy they emit. In this case, they are believed to enhance creativity and manifest desire.
The gemstone is cradled by a delicate bouquet of ribbons, woven with flora producing a majestic crown. The four points of the 24k Gold overlay symbolize healing and represent the components of healing; self, nature, wisdom, and divinity.
This symbolism suggests transition, balance, faith, unity, temperance, hope, and life. As such, this piece is a talisman to balance. To access the inner peace providing strength to overcome adversity through acceptance.
The reverse of this pendant is highly decorated representing the beauty of the unseen soul. Hidden from view, but with an ever present beauty.
This piece has a medium patina (oxidized) producing the effect of an ancestral heirloom that is destined to pass the love of family for years to come. To contrast this effect, a smooth gloss finish has been applied to the silver embellishments.
The .925 sterling silver adjustable (16” – 18”) length chain contains a beautiful decorative hand formed fine silver wire clasp. You may personalize the chain length up to 22". Simply add your preferred lenth in the checkout message box.
