The focal piece of this cluster necklace is a hand fabricated mourning dove feather which I made from scratch starting with silver sheet and wire. The feather pendant is accompanied by a 1/2" round medallion that is etched with the last stanza of my original poem, 'Where Bluebirds Brood":
"To sing the air where scent of your hair fades
and bathe in light that falls where you cannot sleep."
I combined these pieces together with a rose cut white moonstone "tear." All of these components are clustered together on a long 30" solid sterling silver rolo chain.

𝘊𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘺 Brooch in progress. Vitreous enamel; hand painted, torch fired. This is one of a series of art jewelry pieces incorporating dead, flightless, and falling birds. I designed these pieces to provoke a strong sense of compassion and charity; they are my response to a pervasive callousness, a call for empathy for others.
