This piece is an introduction to my concept following the 9/11 tragedy. This brooch was design as a memorial to the victims and their families. The cross symbolizes the body of the victims and the silver piece around the cross, represents the love of the supporters who share the pain of this tragedy. The embracing piece is attempting to somehow ease the pain and the suffering of those who lost their loved ones. As long as we wear this brooch on our hearts, we will not forget the precious lives of our loved ones. As we live in this uncertain world, it reminds us to value and cherish our family, neighbors and our own lives.  Consequently, this initial piece inspired me to further develop the concept of instability.
