Item description:

The focal point of my piece depicts the cross with 9 doves in flight, representing the nine victims of the horrific act of hate and racism. The Emanuel 9 Memorial is a monument to Love, Forgiveness, and Action by teaching new attitudes and behaviors to reverse racism. I added the word Hope, for the book written by Rev Sharon Risher, the daughter of victim Ethel Vance, titled “For Such A Time As This: Hope and Forgiveness After The Charleston Massacre”. I chose the stones Amethyst; Garnet; Peridot and Citrine to represent spiritual awareness, courage and faith, compassion, and optimism. All pieces hand fabricated, hand drawn and hand sawn from 16 gauge (1.29 mm thick) sterling silver. This is a big, bold piece with the cross measuring at 2 ½” in length and all pieces hanging on a long 34 inch sterling silver rolo chain.
