Pomegranate Eternal Light
Here is an idea for the Eternal Light: A small mouth-blown pomegranate shroud with a gold rim. A letter "shin" is gold leafed onto the surface of the shroud. The shroud is attached to a nipple through the bottom and finished with a gold-leafed cap. To remove shroud, unscrew the cap and slide downward.
