The strength of Compassion, like silk, is disguised in its softness.
This sterling silver Compassion pendant measures 1.25″ x .85″ in size.
The circle is universal in its meaning. It represents the infinite nature of energy, oneness and the inclusivity of the universe. This particular circle of compassion offers an embrace or evokes cradling arms – arms folding around something dear like a person, baby or self.
I designed the Compassion Pendant around the time I was studying Japanese Tea Ceremony. The simplicity of the Japanese circle ‘enso’ inspired me to make a very simple piece that embodied compassion.
K Robins. I was born and raised in Virginia and reside there in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. An epiphany of sorts occurred around 1980 and I began to see life in a new way. While my young children played nicely upstairs I would steal away to my basement shop where I normally made furniture, cooking utensils and an assortment of other wooden things. Now to my amazement, out of the wood and sawdust, a series of female figurines was erupting. The original cherry, boxwood, rosewood and ebony symbols and figures have evolved into a line of silver pendants that includes nearly 100 designs.
Many of the jewelry designs come from my fascination with the language of symbols and how the art of different cultures and times echoes around the world.All cultures surround themselves with symbols of some sort and naturally pass them reverently from generation to generation. These symbols lift up and guide us through life’s interwoven cycles of birth, life, death and rebirth.
