Symmetry in Jewelry

Day 34: 30. Symmetry

When I think of symmetry, I think of mathematics and the many properties that are behind having similar shapes in a design. In the case of this photograph, this is reflected in a pair of earrings. I received a lovely gift from a friend that traveled to and from Ireland.

This gift was unexpected but appreciated. The tree of life is an indicator of the relationship between heaven and earth. To represent this connection, I placed the box on a blue and green setting. There has to be a sense of balance in the composition when depicting symmetry so that the focus is on the object and its similarity. The curvatures intertwined in the circle of each earring showcases an interesting pattern.

This challenge is completed: 30. Symmetry
