Item description:

“Peace on the Horizon” earrings by Stacy King of The Drift Handmade. Inspired by the windows of the Mother Emanuel church. Through the windows, the sun is rising, symbolic of the hopes and prayers for a future where black women, men and children and free of fear of racial violence. Each earring has nine charms, one for each life that was taken. The charms are stamped with the initials of the individuals, once on each earring, for a total of two times each. Once for the loss of life and sorrow and once for celebration of their life and for hope. These earrings were a labor of love, taking multiple days to construct. They are made from solid Sterling silver with hand stamped and pierced details. I hope they do justice in honoring the victims and convey the love and meaning put into them.
