Chile Temple pendant - Mother of Pearl and Abalone
"Dearly loved Friends,
We greet you with immense joy on this singular occasion, a moment of high achievement for the Baha’i world after much earnest striving: The process of raising up Baha’i Houses of Worship, an endeavour whose origins can be traced back to the days of the Blessed Beauty Himself, has reached the point where today a Mother Temple stands upon the soil of every continent. Three such Temples now lie on a pan-American axis, to whose southern pole you have all been drawn. As anticipated by the Guardian, it is the Chilean capital city that has become the site of the first Mashriqu’l-Adhkar of South America. Blending grace and grandeur in equal measure, this Dawning-Point of God’s Remembrance now summons all comers to worship the One Who is their Creator, their sovereign Lord, the Giver of Light to the world."

We worked with Latin American artist Tahereh Dooki to create these beautiful commemorative pieces in Sterling Silver. This very delicate pendant features 9 pieces of Mother of Pearl or Abalone shell placed around it with the Greatest Name in the middle. It is as if you were staring at the top of the temple from the inside or outside.
