“I just wanted to let the Green Woman Store folks know that I received the Flaming Chalice pendant by K Robins and it is indeed lovely. I appreciate the speedy, well-packaged delivery. Thanks again for your wonderful service!” Shannie
Flaming Chalice symbolizing receptivity, illumination, the burning truth of justice, and freedom for all beings. Sterling Silver .7″ x 1.5″.
This Flaming Chalice design ‘incubated’ for a long time. For many years it seems, Unitarian Universalists that I met have requested a chalice and flame combo from me. Around Easter of 2011, I gave it a try. A wide spectrum of symbolic meaning revealed itself… from birth, to living in the flame of truth, to death and resurrection.
As Flaming Chalice was not a commissioned piece for UU, I was free to immerse myself in the experience of chalice and flame union. I loved working on this piece! The deep meaning and alchemy of these two powerful symbols, the UU symbol incorporates two circles, and is perfect for the open arms and spiritual quest of the Unitarian Universalist.
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.
