CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
It is made of sterling silver (925) handmade in my workshop.
This pendant is made of a sterling silver circle showing organic details and of a flying crow that I hand draw on a silver sheet and that I patiently sawed.
The raven is a mysterious bird and has strong symbolic in many cultures around the world. It is known for its longevity (30 years or more), intelligence and social organization superior the average of other birds. From its black color, his hoarse cry and scavenger behavior, it has a bad reputation in the West and particularly in Christian Europe.
However, this is a relatively new belief as in other culture or in the Western past, the crow had other attributes: founder of the world, family love, insight, spiritual loneliness, hope, or even wisdom.
An example can be Hugin and Munin from Norse mythology who were the messengers of the god Odin.
All these beliefs make a mysterious animal and great duality, oscillating between good and evil, positive and negative, but still present in the minds and popular culture.
It is 3.8 x 4.5cm.
Matte and oxidized finish.
