Keeper of the Creekline Neckpiece



Kestrel Dillon

Sterling Silver

11″ x 14″

The inspiration for this piece are willow trees, which are flexible under stress. It is this flexibility that makes them resilient. In a world where we see so much negative change, there is truth in the willow’s resiliency. Willows are a lesson of survival through challenging times and conditions. This neckpiece is like delicate armor, protecting the wearer with that which is vulnerable.
