Hermetic jewelry – Handcrafted and recycled silver Victorian shilling.
The fact that this simple symbol can contain such elaborate truth is quite astounding, but very real indeed. The large circle represents the heavens or the universe. The triangle within that circle is representative of the ether or spirit world. It is the collective consciousness of everyone and everything. It is in balance with the universe. The square is representative of the earth and included within, it’s four corners represent the four elements. Within that square lies the answer that the symbol is leading us to. The arrangement of the shapes of the symbol naturally draw your eye into the centre of the circle. This is the point within the circle. It represents you. This is the balance point for everything and represents the answer. As we can see, the symbol is not only a mathematical depiction of the whole, but is a symbol of balance between all of the energies and planes of existence. The focus of the symbol is it’s centre, you.
We must strive to capture the balance between all of the energies in our lives. Finding this balance within is the seekers quest. As we look to free ourselves from the bondage of our mental prisons, we must look for this centre of balance. It is the point of all love. The centre within all of us is the key to finding peace. Not only peace with our selves, but peace for everyone.
As always, each and every necklace pendant is handmade and completely made from recycled raw materials. The raw material is a sterling silver shilling coin circa 1890’s. The coins i use are unwanted by coin collectors due to wear, etc. This skull and cross bones design is freehand drawn onto the sterling silver coin, several holes are drilled and the sections are delicately cut away. The edges are filed, smoothed and finally polished. The end result is a lovely, original, recycled pendant with a fantastic history.
Each one of these coin pendants i create is different, unusual and unique. Be assured that if you order one it will look equally as lovely!
