Wherefore he resolved to have a moving image of eternity, and when he set in order the heaven, he made this image eternal but moving according to number, while eternity itself rests in unity; and this image we call time.

-Plato

made of: silver, copper, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: The symbol encrusted cylinder (without bail) is 1.75 inches high and almost an inch wide.
chain: The sterling silver chain is just over 28 inches long, and includes a sterling lobster clasp. Please let me know if you would prefer a different length.
process: The enameling process for making this pendant is labor-intensive. It involves laying layers of finely-ground glass onto the copper forms and firing them multiple times at very high temperatures in a kiln. Lots of protective gear involved at every step!
