The piece that I've created is in honor of my mother. I included a photograph of a Tulip Tree leaf because Tulip Poplars were her favorite tree and whenever I see those leaves I am reminded of her.
My brooch is a book that also serves as a locket. When you open it, there is a silver screen inside that holds the photograph behind it. In my piece, the book represents life. The past is what has been read and the bookmark symbolizes the present.
