The design of this star is based on the inspiring chronicle of Esther, a heroic figure of strength, courage and grace. I witnessed the reading of the Book of Esther at the Synagogue at Rouen, France, the oldest known Jewish building in Europe. Built in the 1200s, its star window casts a lavender blue light through the sanctuary.
Echoing those colors, I chose a palette of blue and lavender Swarovksi crystal with an oval vintage art glass center stone to anchor the design. Elegant, strong lines have the notion of architecture, based on decorative arts of the that early era. Star pendant and long rolo chain are layered in hand burnished silver. While much 'Judaica' is limited to contemporary silhouettes, this star offers a silhouette all but lost with the upheavals of Jewish culture in the 20th century. Star:1.5" x 2-1/4" Chain: 36"
