It happens that our lives are darkened, that the glows of joy get stuck in the shadows of doubt, all sense of our actions disappears, like a snowflake in the hand.
"Sometimes faith might just be a case of not havin nothin else left."*
One has to turn inward then - catch this flickering flame of faith, lift up and light up the darkness. It turns out that you couldn't see the light in the tunnel just because you hit a bend. And although we do not know what will happen next, we believe that this road leads somewhere. We must go on...
“What's the bravest thing you ever did?
[...]. Getting up this morning, he said.”**
So... “Keep a little fire burning; however small, however hidden.”**
The fiery, silver brooch was created at the turn of 2020-21. In the middle of the prevailing pandemic of doubt and such an uncertain and difficult future for artistic jewelry. It was completely handcrafted in our atelier. The watch parts around a golden zircon sparkle and glow in flame-like shapes and colours.
Dimensions: 9.7 x 3.6 cm
Silver 925 weight: 16.9 g.
The pins are made of stainless steel.
Stones: resin cabochons with compositions of metal watch parts inside.
This original flame-shaped brooch will be packed in an elegant box before shipping - suitable for a gift.
