This pendant is made of sterling silver (925) made by hand in my workshop, and a beautiful bumblebee.
This pendant is designed around this bumblebee. Pointed oval or almond, this cabochon has a gray and cloudy background with dancing lines in yellow-orange shades, typical of bumblebee. It reminds me a dancing flame and lightning streaking the gray sky.
therefore, I set this semi-precious stone on a silver plate with irregular cut to combine with this idea of dancing flame and lightning streaking the sky.
I also pierced the back of the pendant, with a dancing flames form or lightning splitting into several branches. The advantage is especially to allow admiring the stone on both sides.
I chose to call it Liekki, which means flame in Finnish. The Sami, northern tribe of Finland, has a tradition to switch on many fires on the sacred mount Saana. This is offerings in honor of the god Ukko, god of storms and lightning. A way to link the two concepts I was lends this pendant.
It is signed with my initials on the back.
Polished, matte finish, oxidized.
The surface is 5.5 x 2 cm.
Rustic setting to strengthen the male touch of this pendant.
