On this specific multicharme we combine:
Zarathustra was a Persian philosopher and prophet, messenger of peace, good life, and eternal love. The symbol on this piece, Faravahar, was used as a symbol of Zoroastrianism religion, that was initially spread throughout the ancient Persian Empire. Faravahar’s wings feathers indicate three symbols of good thoughts, good words, and good deeds.
The Faravahar is an invitation to proceed toward the good and turn away from bad, encouraging loyalty and faithfulness. Throughout the time, Faravahar has become a national symbol in modern Iran, rather than a religious icon. Having grown up in Iran, this symbol and the beauty of the values it carries is an important reminder of the strength of human good feelings and related actions, whatever situations we face.
In Ancient Mexico the emerald gemstone was called “quetzalitzli”. It was associated with the bird called quetzal. The quetzal has long beautiful green wings and was a sacred bird, symbol of spring and renewal. The Maya believed that this bird would die in captivity. It was therefore a strong symbol of freedom and prosperity. The feathers of this bird and the gemstone associated with it were very expensive, which added to its symbol of wealth. It was considered a crime to kill a quetzal.
How is it made?
The Balinese are highly skilled silversmiths, known for their granulation and wirework decoration. Beads, as well as bezels and other similar findings, are handmade from the sheets of silver, cut and formed into the desired shape. The silver sheeting is cut to particular size for making a bead, then hammered into semi-circular indentations in a brass block. The wire granulation is applied to the bead with a natural glue and then a solution of silver, copper and water is brushed over the bead. The entirely bead is carefully heated with the torch to complete the process. The silver is then cleaned with a fruit substance and dipped into an oxidant solution. When polished, the raised areas with become bright on a dark background, highlighting the design. Interesting, isn't it?
