Being a Hero means standing up for what is right, often against powerful opponents. Hero represents the courage and determination of those who sacrifice their own comforts to fight for the good of others.
The pieces in this collection are all different. There is no way to make two identical. The sterling silver is heated until the surface melts. As it cools, it forms unique patterns on the surface. The pieces are then hammered, cut, scratched and drilled. They are basically harmed in every way possible. Rather than try to disguise the history of their experiences, these pieces show off proudly the beauty of what they have been transformed into. In addition to the surface decoration, the pieces have a single diamond set in them and a hole. The diamond represents strength and the hole is a Celtic symbol. The Celts believed stones with holes in them were lucky. They also built tombs with a hole in them so the soul was free to travel between different worlds. The diamond and the hole symbolise strength and freedom and I hope they bring the wearer good luck.
