It has already become a tradition. Every January I come up with a new design based on a powerful symbol that has a great significance and symbolizes new beginnings and a fresh start.

The Flower of Life with the Tree of Life
The Seed of Life is one of the most ancient symbol in existence. It can be found all over the globe
This symbol reveals the secret and sacred pattern of creation. It is the basic blueprint of existence and shows how the one consciousness came into existence out of the endless void and created every single atom and molecule always evolving and always exploring itself.
It is quite interesting to discover how this seven circles pattern is equivalent to the concept of the seven days of creation, that was also the origin for the Menorah with its seven branches coming out of one branch, that stood in the ancient temple in Jerusalem and symbolized the source of creation and the light of the world.
Over time this pattern became a powerful symbol of blessing, fertility and protection as it symbolizes pure light, pure balance and direct connection to the source.
The Seed of life can be found in ancient synagogues, churches, early scriptures of the Jewish kabbalah, ancient temple in Asia and of course ,the ancient Osirian Temple in Abydos, Egypt.
The New Designs incorporate the Seed of Life inside the Flower of Life. The Flower of Life is considered as the ultimate sacred formula of the universe. It contains a hidden structure known as the “Fruit of Life” which consists of 13 circles. When one connects all the centers, the result is a “Metatron’s Cube”. Metatron’s Cube is the name given to a complex three-dimensional geometric figure made from 13 circles of the same size, with lines extending from the center of every circle to the center of all the other twelve circles.
The Flower of Life is a powerful Sacred Geometry symbol believed to hold all the patterns of creation. It is a key to the Metatron’s Cube that hold the outlines of the five “Platonic Solids” - the Dodecahedron, the Octahedron, the Icosahedron, the Tetrahedron and the Cube.These structures with their different combinations are the basis of every molecular structure and actually every known structure in the universe.
The flower of life is one of the most known sacred geometric shapes in the world and is widely used in many forms of art.
The Flower of Life with the Tree of Life
The ancient connection between art, science and philosophy can be found in the teaching of pythagoras the great greek philosopher. Pythagoras considered the dodecahedron to be the structure of the universe itself since the proportions of it’s facets held the key to Phi - the golden mean measure which can be found everywhere in nature.
In the ancient Egyptian temple in Abydos, on one of the pillars there is a perfect diagram of the Seed of Life, The Flower of life with some ancient Greek writings, which shows that it was probably made during the Hellenistic period by the Pythagoreans.
These same principles and teachings can be found in the land of Israel in the early teachings of the kabbalah who delved into the studies of another sacred pattern, hidden in the Flower of Life - The tree of Life. The Kabbalists called the 10 connected circles or spheres of the structure sephirot (Countings) and used this structure as a key that shows the flow of light and consciousness from the endless divine source. The Tree of Life also referred to as the structure of the different realms of reality.
Silver and Gold - The Perfect balance
When I made these pendants I’ve decided to use different combinations of gold and silver since this was part of ancient Hermeticism practice to use gold as the symbol of the Sun or the masculine while using silver as emphasizing the feminine side of creation, or the moon in ancient alchemy. In this way “these forces of creation dwell in perfect balance”
I hope that you’ll have a brilliant and wondrous 2016!!
