Sun flower — yellow gold pendant
It was that beloved time, the heights of an exalted summer, when the sunflowers began to bloom. People went in droves to the sunflower fields to take advantage of one of nature’s most photogenic settings. Even the July rains gave way to our desire to be one with the sun on earth. Radiant petals stood like beacons, propelling human imagination back to our carefree childhoods and evoking feelings of reckless independence and titanic faith. It’s no wonder our ancestors believed in the powers of this plant, calling it the flower of revelation. Yet today there are so many words and so few revelations. If only an ordinary sunflower could tell me what I have long wanted to hear. Perhaps it’s worth a try? Consider its mystifying darkness, which contrasts the fiery petals. It no longer has to run from its own obscure depths. Instead, it dives into the unknown, just like those who have lost their way in a huge field of tiny suns. To become small in the womb of mother earth. To become her child again. Because where there is beauty, there is love.
This flower led me to think that the Creator has already produced the world’s most wondrous things, and it is the onus of man to simply imitate them.
And this morning, along with thousands of other suns, another «Sunflower» rose on Ukrainian soil — a pendant filled with heat and the smell of nectar. Crafted from warm silver, it blooms spectacularly in lustrous gilding. Would you like to carry a flower of revelation over your heart?
