DescriptionI loved the gradations of colour with the black/black ice/silver rings I got from TRL. When I was playing with E4 made with them, I realized I could make something rather symbolic with it, so I did.
Materials and construction:
Top Edge, European 6-in-1: Round anodized aluminium (black, black ice) (ID=4.76mm OD=7.16mm WD=1.2mm AR=3.97)
European 4-in-1 middle section: sixteen triangles of square anodized aluminium (black, ice-black, silver) (ID=4.76mm OD=7.16mm WD=1.2mm AR=3.97); fifteen diamonds of round anodized aluminium (black, ice-black) and bright aluminium (silver) (ID=4.76mm OD=7.16mm WD=1.2mm AR=3.97); red lines through the diamonds, red anodized aluminium (ID=4.76mm OD=7.16mm WD=1.2mm AR=3.97) and red enamelled copper (ID=4.76mm, OD=7.34mm, WD=1.29mm, AR=3.69).
Bottom points: red glass drops, one Swarovski crystal drop (Siam).
Black graduating into silver: representing the journey from darkness into light, from sin into holiness.
Sixteen triangles (of square-wire rings): Triangles represent the Trinity of God; sixteen is four times four, representing the four Gospels and the four arms of the Cross - the Good News, Christ's sacrifice, which saves us and sanctifies us.
Fifteen diamonds: five is the number of Man, and three is the number of God (the Trinity), thus fifteen, as five times three, is the intersection of Man and God - the incarnate Christ.
Line of red, red glass drops: the blood of Christ, which he shed for our salvation, which washes our sins away.
