A beautiful piece perfect for your sacred space, altar area, window, or anywhere that you want to
bring some rainbow and love energy! This one of a kind piece has 174 faceted crystals in the

The Sri Yantra, also known as Sri Chakra, is called the mother of all yantras because all
other yantras derive from it. In its three dimensional forms Sri Yantra is said to represent
Mount Meru, the cosmic mountain at the center of the universe.
The Sri Yantra is conceived as a place of spiritual pilgrimage. It is a representation of the
cosmos at the macrocosmic level and of the human body at the microcosmic level (each of
the circuits correspond to a Chakra of the body).
The nine interlocking triangles centered around the Bindu (the central point of the yantra)
are drawn by the superimposition of five downward pointing triangles, representing
Shakti; the female principle and four upright triangles, representing Shiva; the male
principle. The nine interlocking triangles form forty three small triangles each housing a
presiding deity associated with particular aspects of existence.
One's spiritual journey from the stage of material existence to ultimate enlightenment is
mapped on the Sri Yantra. The spiritual journey is taken as a pilgrimage in which every
step is an ascent to the center, a movement beyond one's limited existence, and every
level is nearer to the goal.
The Sri Yantra is a tool to give a vision of the totality of existence, so that the adept may
internalize its symbols for the ultimate realization of his unity with the cosmos.
I handmade this Sri Yantra clay center piece with a bronze polymer clay.
I then hand painted the Sri Yantra design in vibrant colors of: Purple, Indigo, Magenta, Turquoise,
Green, Yellow, Orange, and Red.
The center of the Sri Yantra design has a sparkling Dichroic handmade glass cabochon.
I painted the back of the clay piece in Purple with a Bronze Spiral design.
The spiral represents many things:
Evolution and holistic growth, Letting go, surrender, release,
Awareness of the one within the context of the whole,
Connectivity and union with cosmic energies, a journey back to center/source,
Revolutions of time, stars, planets and the way of natural progress.
This piece takes several days to complete and I hope the photos can catch a glimpse of just how
magical this piece is!
The center clay piece is riveted and measures approx. 4 and 1/4 inches in diameter and about
6-7mm thick. The clay is polymer clay with a clear coat finish to seal in the hand-painted design.
This is an indoor piece and should not be exposed to wet weather.
The dream catcher ring is wrapped in a brown deer skin leather.
It has a diameter of 6 and 1/8 inches.
The entire piece measures 19 inches long from top of dream catcher hoop to bottom of crystals.
The wire working is done in copper.
The dream-catcher/sun-catcher is filled with 174 gorgeous faceted crystals.
Truly a one-of-a-kind piece!!

|I tried to show an example of just how many reflections come off of the
174 crystals in this design, but it was so hard to catch just how many
rainbows and prisms it scattered throughout the room!
This is such a sparkly and magical piece!
