Take Flight Necklace
Truth & Reconciliation in Canada is a time to reflect on the past, the present and the future of our First Nations Communities and to put into practice new and improved ways to deal with past wrongs.
"Take Flight" is dedicated to the children of the Residential Schools and to the discovery of all the little children who were unceremoniously lost to time and history and are only now being found.
The stars on this pendant represent the lost children, while the pierced birds represent those who have finally been found and their souls are now taking flight. The large star on the back side of the pendant is for all of us who are here to help hold up those who cannot stand on their own. The orange Fire Opal Swarovski Crystal set at the bottom is in honour of Phyllis Jack Webstad and her stolen orange shirt, https://www.orangeshirtday.org/phyllis-story.html
Each pendant ordered is hand crafted one at a time as ordered and will have slight variations in the design placement. Delivery on these pendants will be 2-3 weeks.
$50.00 from each pendant sold will be donated to The Indigenous Christian Fellowship of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. ICF is a Canadian urban ministry serving the spiritual and social needs of Indian and Metis people of Regina, Sask.
*Materials: Sterling Silver, Swarovski Crystal, Oxidization, 20" Sterling Silver Necklace Chain.
*Measurements: 15/16" wide x 1 1/2" long
*Oxidized finishes are not completely permanent! The pendant will change in appearance, especially with daily wear. While it has received a chemical application of Liver of Sulfur as a surface treatment, it will wear off in the high areas over time causing a patina that is unique to each piece.
Take Flight is made possible with the use of tools from 3 other artists. Thank you to Meesh Barlow (stars) and Daniel Urrea (feather) for their amazing hand made stamps and to Chris Pruitt for his star shot plate (star on the backside) that allowed me to create this pendant.
All Roxanne Brown Jewellery items come gift wrapped and ready for gifting.
