New Drop in the Ocean Pendant
About a month ago I was asked to create a gold pendant for the prolific award-winning writer and poet, Mirik Snir. Mirik who also specializes in children's linguistic skills wrote one of my two years old son favorite book, "Miriam ve-hayam" - Miriam and the Sea. It tells the story of a little girl - Miriam, who is trying to figure out what is the Sea. The story becomes a journey for both the parent and the child as they go through different definitions, names, words and places in such a way that they both participate in this adventure and child acquires different understandings and skills.
The New Drop in the Ocean Pendant
The pendant itself was designed in the shape of a drop with the Seed of Life pattern in the center. At the bottom, I've added an engraving that was taken from the Biblical Book of Number
Which talks about the miraculous well of Miriam.
When I finished it I recalled the ancient phrase that was written by the famous 13th-century mystic Sufi poet. "You are not a drop in the Ocean, you are the ocean in a drop." I like this phrase because it emphasizes that we are not just a small part of the cosmos but the whole cosmos actually exist within us. It gives you a different perspective which sees us not as many separate individuals forming one universe but as one universe that manifests in countless individuals...

At the top of the pendant, there is the Hebrew/ Assyrian
font of the letter “Pe” in the same way that it is written
in the Torah. The Hebrew word “PE” literally means
“mouth” and in the ancient traditions, the entire cosmos
was created with God’s word. The Hebrew letter PE is
written in such a way, that the missing space inside of it
creates the second letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the
letter “BET” which also means “house”. This is also the
first letter of the bible/Genesis. Symbolically it means
that the entire creation/existence is nothing but a
thought, perhaps a thought pattern that can be found and
recognized through symbols such as the Seed of Life and
that each one of us carries the same spark and came to
existence by the same one consciousness which the entire
universe is her house.
The pendant is meant to inspire the wearer to experience
oneness with the universe. It also serves as a powerful
reminder of our endless ability of creation.
