mitsuro heron pendant in silicon bronze
Somewhere along the way, I became obsessed with the idea of solving jewelry's usual technical constraints with a more sculptural approach. The natural evolution from the industry-standard attached bail to a more flowing, integrated solution led me to the design the heron.
In Greek mythology, the heron has been indicated as being a messenger from the gods, including deities like Athene and Aphrodite. White herons are often indicated as representing the sun, particularly in Eastern and Egyptian mythologies.
