talisman of grief

"Life is change and cannot be contained or it will stagnate. This vessel is symbolic of this letting go or flowing through of life. Let it remind you to be open and to move forward." Betty Helen Longhi

north carolina metalsmith betty helen longhi believes that crying is a cleansing experience. she created the 'vessels for tears' necklace (shown above on a beautifully crafted stand) as a way to offer comfort and while the open design does not hold liquid, it does act as a gentle reminder that tears must flow through us to wash away the pain. wear it. hold it. feel it.
