ITEM DESCRIPTION: I believe that all people deserve the pursuit of happy, healthy lives. Access to mental health services, and funding, is essential, providing crucial support as we traverse the trials and triumphs of being human. It SHOULD be accessible to everyone; sadly, it is not, with communities of color having disproportionately less access. I created this piece in homage to this specific disadvantage.

The cicada represents perseverance and metamorphosis, after years of patient growth, emerging whole and beautiful. The properties of the amethyst support mental health and well-being. This brooch doubles as a pendant, with a hinged bail that tucks into the backside, and is handcrafted in sterling silver and 18k gold. Please join me in this endeavor to make mental health services more accessible for people of color by bidding on this one-of-a-kind piece. Together we are stronger!
