I recently received the exciting news that this necklace will be included in Showcase 500 Art Necklaces, being released this summer by Lark Publishing! I am so happy to be included in this wonderful collection. The locket was created as a portrait of my great-grandmother, Georgia Helen Griffith. She was was an independent, college-educated woman who traveled to Jamaica in 1890 as a Quaker missionary. The materials in the locket include etched copper, sterling, sapphire, garnet, and found objects; elements are hand fabricated and lost wax cast. Above the antique map on the back of the locket is the Quaker star.
