Item description:

I call this piece “Mercurial” because gender Is not a rigid thing. The back is stamped with, “THE T IS NOT SILENT”, the title of a book by Andrea Jenkins. Andrea is a poet, a teacher, a politician and black transgender. Her message is one of courage, honesty and hope. Now with civil rights being threatened socially and politically, we must be diligent in our efforts to protect and celebrate each individual’s right to live authentically. “Mercurial” represents the absolute freedom to live that truth. I created this pendant using the enameling techniques of champleve’ and cloisonné. The finished enamel is set in sterling silver. Thank you for supporting such an important and timely cause. Laura
