the cosmos pendant.
Being healthy means having beautiful patterns.
Every living thing has patterns. In the shipibo cosmo - vision (the shipibo-conibo are an indigenous tribe along the ucayali river in the amazon rainforest of peru), the universe is made from sound. The designs are the medicine and the songs of the plants. The plant spirit teach them to us and show us how to heal illness and how to help people.
We are deeply in love with the shipibo patterns. We love for what they stand for. That every living being has its own pattern and individual patterns together make up the great pattern of the cosmos. The elaborate decorations are intended to remind us that we are all part of one big whole.
Even if it is not the tradition of our part of the world, it is something that we carry in our hearts and let it flow into our jewelry.
This pendant is a real handmade work. Every detail is hand sawn with tons of love & sweat. In terms of its size (diameter 32mm) , it is not too big and not too small. Topped with a stunning Australian opal in soft gray purple tones with red, pink flash.
