Inspiration: The Kabbalah's Sefirot
Through the language of the Sefirot, G*d is expressed in ten manifestations or emanations, as it were, like kindness, strength and beauty. All of these manifestations have avenues of connection to one another. We imagine these energies in triangles forming triads of relationships.

(grace) is thus the fourth sefirah and is the irrepressibly expanding impulse, of Gedulah (greatness) of love and growth.
(beauty) is the combination of harmony, truth, compassion
(power) is restraint and concentration, control as well as fear and awe.

Twenty-two elemental letters.
God engraved them, carved them, weighed the, permuted them, and transposed them forming with them everything formed and everything destined to be formed….Thus all that is formed, all that is spoken emerges from one name

Lost-Wax Bronze Casting - an ancient process
These pendants are fine art bronze castings using the lost wax method. The lost wax method of bronze casting was developed in the Ancient Near East in the late 4th millennium BCE, found then both in ancient Ur and Egypt.
This ancient process is used today to create fine art bronzes that embody the artist’s touch. In the pieces, you can see the imprint of the artist’s hand molding clay and modeling wax. It is a labor-intensive process, demonstrating fine craft with 5000 years of history utilized during the time of Abraham.
