This piece is made of sterling silver, copper, and brass. Nine dogwood flowers adorn a bark textured framework. The leaves have eyes to remind us to not look away, to not forget. 9 links are symbolic windows for their souls to travel through. The Black Lives Matter fist is holding a silver cross marked with the tragic date and is surrounded by a halo that will catch and reflect light when worn. This piece is deeply meaningful, bold, beautiful to make a statement about those taken from their families and communities with such violence. I have interpreted that negative event into something that represents gentleness, kindness, love, renewal, faith, so that those things endure in our minds and hearts. Mother Emanuel Church asks us to forgive, to love, to remember.
