The Greeks have stood as giants among civilizations because of their brilliant reasoning in literature, architecture and art. Especially fascinating are their graphic depictions on their beautiful edifices which reveal a genius and elegance that deserves admiration and study.
The scroll, a form among these depictions, is expressed abundantly in their decorative body of work. The wave motif is considered a running scroll which is an ornamental element consisting of spirals and rolling incomplete circle motifs. The most recognizable type of scroll is depicted on Ionic columns.
These types of graphic works have a natural and balanced feel to them since they are oftentimes found in nature; consider an ocean or snail’s shell.
Grecian Wave features a three-dimensional medallion that is stuffed to give it strength. A rolling scroll pattern is depicted on the top and bottom surface of the circular medallion. Zircon cup chain is carefully stitched inside a channel to give it a pretty glittery effect and then is finished with a picot edge for a lacy outer rim. The band is odd count peyote and uses a button and loop closure with a butterfly fastener to hold the band in place.
