ITEM DESCRIPTION: "She was the life of whatever room she walked into, and her sense of humor was jovial, even during the hardest times"
“She was radically honest and would tell you exactly what she was thinking, but in the most respectful and kind way.”
"Her unconditional love was felt by all who met her and her kind and funny spirit left its mark on any who met her."
This piece was created for the November 6th @metalsmithforchangeauction in memory of Jahaira DeAlto. The words above are ones I came across when researching for this creation to have this piece embody the human she was. Citrine was chosen to embody some parts of the essence of Jahaira. Citrine is known as "the Light Maker." The Citrine stone harnesses the energy of the sun to bring sunshine and light to all areas of life. Keeping this stone close will help keep your environment and energy feeling sunny and bright. Filled with positive energy, this stone helps connect to your inner light, as well as bring a sense of optimism to one's endeavors. It seemed like the perfect stone to create this piece in remembrance of Jahaira.
She is set on an adjustable sterling silver chain. Proceeds benefit National Black Justice Coalition @nbjconthemove, whose mission is to end racism, homophobia, and LGBTQ/SGL bias and stigma.
