Orphic Egg Locket
Hand carved and cast in solid sterling silver using the lost wax process, this design is softly detailed to give an aged heirloom effect.
The Orphic Egg, also known as the cosmic egg in many ancient cultures is viewed as the origin of all life. In Greek mythology the dual deity Phanes/Protogonus was born of the cosmic egg and in turn created all the other gods and goddesses. A beautiful symbol of becoming the master of your own destiny, owning your own strength, and honoring your highest self.
This is a larger locket measuring 1.5"H made with a fold over safety catch, hand pinned hinges and is suspended on a 20" sterling silver chain.
