Sisters of Mercy Project: Sister Rachel

28mm by 18mm - Mosaic gold in sterling silver

As the pendants have now been given to their recipients, I can now continue posting the Sisters of Mercy project. I wasn't given specific requests for each of the ten pendants, but rather, was given a photograph of each woman who was receiving one, and was asked to consider what would be appropriate and meaningful to each. Aware that some of the Sisters may never have worn much jewelry before, I wanted to make sure that they, in particular, received something that they would be comfortable wearing. To that end, I created a cross for Sister Rachel, who received this piece.
