In the language of flowers, lily of the valley represents a return to happiness, especially after a struggle for it. Biblically, it was said to have sprouted from Mary's tears of mourning for her dead son. This tie to grief was strengthened in the Victorian era, when lily of the valley frequently appeared on mourning jewelry and gravestones. Conversely, the Victorians also grew this flower indoors during the darkest days of winter, to bring joy into the home and serve as a reminder that the light always returns. Thus, lily of the valley embodies both darkness and light, grief and happiness, death and life. It simultaneously holds space for sorrows and points the way toward healing. In my personal symbolism, this plant spirit has reminded me again and again of the potential to transmute my pain into something beautiful. This pendant was born of these concepts. Two stems of lily of the valley, sawed by hand from my own drawings, adorn each side of a handmade hollow cauldron - the ultimate symbol of transformation. The top bud on each stem has yet to fully bloom, a nod to the growth still to come. An ever-shifting oval of rare Finnish spectrolite sits betwixt the stems, a stone of creativity, courage, and transformation. Five smoky quartz points spring forth from the cauldron, dispelling negativity and grounding the wearer. This piece is intended as a talisman for dark times and a guide back toward the light. My maker's mark and .925 for sterling adorn the back of the cauldron, and the entire piece has been blackened and sanded to highlight the details.
