"How good it is if the friends be as close as sheaves of light, if they stand together side by side in a firm unbroken line." --'Abdu'l-Bahá, Selections from the Writings of 'Abdu'l-Bahá
This necklace reflects sunrays after an ice storm, the clear Swarovski crystals and white jade round beads reminiscent of ice and snow.
The quote above, plus photos of sunbeams shining through trees or emanating from clouds, is what sparked my imagination to make this piece of jewelry and all the others in the Sheaves of Light collection.
