A setting summer sun graces the upper lefthand corner, shining down on the protected reed pond where the Heron is fishing. This locale curves all the way around the stone setting, with cattails and reeds growing along each side and curving around to the front.

You can incorporate this idea along with the specific emotional symbolism built into each one-of-a-kind, handmade silver setting. Enjoy!
