SHINE - verb - (of the sun or another source of light) give out a bright light
This piece was inspired by the following quote by Marianne Williamson.
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to SHINE, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light SHINE, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
I love this quote and I have always tried to remember this however the light within somehow dims. Let this pendant and chain be a reminder to SHINE your light bright.
The Yellow and Orange Rosarita “stone” is a glass-like material, slag (a by-product) from gold mining that is reclaimed. At first sight of this glass piece, it screamed sun and SHINE so beautiful and bright.
The Rosarita is set in 22ky gold and backed with sterling silver. It measures one inch long and it is hung 31" on an oxidized sterling silver chain with one 22ky gold teardrop.
