Inspired by Kris's story of perseverance, this necklace symbolizes Kris's flight and new path in life. Although she came from poverty and was the first from her family to graduate high school, she went on to earn multiple degrees and now runs her own business. Ten percent of your purchase in this collection will go to support the scholarship that Kris helped set up for low-income students.
As the bird takes flight into the horizon, leaving everything behind, you see that with her, she's taken a bit of home (the opal) because she won't forget how her past helped shape who she is today. The opal's color changes as you see it with different light. Just as we can look on a negative experience in different ways. We can continue to see the bad, or we can choose the beauty.
