Object. Sterling silver, hand fabricated.
The lilting song of the mourning dove is often the first sound that breaks the silence of the Ohio dawn. I was surprised when I learned that this haunting cry is a mating call, and when Mourning Doves couple, they remain together for life.
Many cultures believe that encountering a mourning dove feather foretells hope, peace, the presence of angels, or a message from someone we've lost. Maybe all of these are true, but for me, this single feather tells a story of the separation of an inseparable pair; one has flown, while the other remains; it is a symbol of the one gone before.
Though I made this little feather of solid sterling silver, I designed it to look as though a mere sigh could lift it.
