Lilies are beautiful flowers with quite a history. They’ve been imbued with mythological and symbolic meaning since the days of ancient Greece. The lily has come to symbolize a great many things, but back in ancient Greece, it was viewed primarily as a symbol of rebirth. I would argue that it’s not just the flower itself imbued with symbolism; what better to symbolize rebirth than the lily’s seedpod—ripening after the flower shrivels, finally splitting open to release the seeds of the next generation of lilies?
For this one-of-a-kind necklace, I cast a lily seedpod in sterling silver and fashioned it into a hinged pendant. Though it looks delicate, it is quite sturdy and easy to wear.
Material: recycled sterling silver
Pendant length: 2”
