The sadness inspired by the hunched figure of the Six of Swords is balanced out by the Hermit, who holds a source of light, here symbolizing the possibility of a brighter future. The cards are placed against scrapbook paper showing faded maps to indicate the problem exists worldwide.
A necklace I previously designed is set against a ribbon and represents the ocean over which the refugees hope to escape. The yellows and blues of the scene are reflected in the necklace segment made with citrine, Murano glass and freshwater pearls. Below the surface, swims a multi-colored fish from a Williams Sonoma plate, representing the possible dangers on this sea voyage.
Custom framed with museum glass in a sophisticated deep wooden frame in collaboration with Chevy Chase Art Gallery, Washington, DC.
