Georgia Helen Griffith, a Locket

This locket was created as a portrait of my great-grandmother. I never met her, but she was an impressive woman. Educated and independent, she traveled to Jamaica in the 1890's as a Quaker missionary. The reverse of the pendant is an antique map of the Caribbean.
Materials: sterling, copper, antique compass, garnet, sapphires; cast, etched, and fabricated. This is one of the pieces featured at Point of Contact Gallery.

Also, next Friday evening is the one night only opening for my graduate seminar. Everyone is invited. The show will have new pieces of mine, plus the work of 5 other very talented MFA students: sculptors, fiber artists, and metalsmiths. Hope to see you there!
