The Vase and Fleur-de-Lis imagery is based on the yin-yang principal. The main idea is balance, and can be thought of in a number of ways. There is the play of Light and Dark, the relationship of Male and Female, the essence of Being and Non-being. These archetypal opposites reflect the duality of nature. In this necklace and bracelet, and with simple, elegant forms, the repeating pattern of Vase and Fleur-de-Lis echos of the cycle of life.
The Vase is a very female shape, graceful in its curves. As a vessel the Vase is significant for what it can hold, representing potentiality and fullness. Often the idea of things to come can be represented by empty spaces, since they are unseen and unknown. Yet this is not a negative concept, but instead, one of receptivity.
The Fleur-de-Lis is an ancient symbol originally derived from a lotus flower. This represents illumination, both in the literal sense of reaching toward the light, as lotus flowers do, and in the search for wisdom, which can enlighten ideas. Later adopted by French monarchs many centuries after its origin, the Fleur-de-Lis symbol came to be recognized as a mark of royalty and power.
The necklace is 16" long, and closes with a toggle. The shapes of the links are especially pleasing when worn.
The bracelet is short in length, and will only fit a small wrist. If yours measures 6 & 5/8" or less, then it will be perfect! PLEASE NOTE: It will not fit most average wrists, sorry! This bracelet can't be sized. It is only available in the short length.
