From Yasmin Everley's Astrology collection, the pendant takes the form of a circle, which the Ancient Greeks considered the most geometrically perfect shape. It holds a cluster of the stars, accurately forming the constellation, which is held suspended in space by delicate wire. The chain is a rope chain, reminiscent of both the sailors who have used these stars to navigate through the centuries and our coiling strands of DNA. The side view shows Sagittarius but illustrates the three dimensional nature of the design.
In the Ancient Greek tale, Aries was the magical ram with the Golden Fleece who rescued two children, Phrixos and Helle, from their murderous stepmother, Ino. As he flew across the sea between Europe and Asia, Helle fell into the water which became known as Hellespont. His fleece was later stolen by Jason and the Argonauts.
