This is a meditative piece. I made it to reflect my lifelong connection to Lake Huron, family and other bodies of water. The colors, shells and stones are the lake. The turtles are me and my husband, meaning long life and long love. The 4 long shell shards are our 4 kids, and the cluster of 6 drops are 6 grandkids. There is a little mermaid at the bottom, for my water baby daughter, who is expecting twins this year. I feel I want to clasp this in my hand as I wear it.
