Lioness of Courage


A piece for the woman who has battled, endured, and persevered. On the left, a lion. Symbol of courage, strength, and resilience in the face of challenge. And next to him, Mary. This particular pendant, far from pristine, tells her story though scars and blemishes.  Despite these marks, her magnificence and grace shines through. 

"...And therefore I look upon everything
as a brotherhood and a sisterhood,
and I look upon time as no more than an idea,
and I consider eternity as another possibility,

and I think of each life as a flower, as common
as a field daisy, and as singular,

and each name a comfortable music in the mouth,
tending, as all music does, toward silence,

and each body a lion of courage, and something
precious to the earth...."      
                                               - Mary Oliver
