A Journey of Resilience Imagine a peaceful evening at home, suddenly interrupted by the arrival of strangers, signaling the start of a heart-wrenching journey. This was the reality for many Cherokee families during the Trail of Tears. They were uprooted from their homes, leaving behind memories and lands they cherished. The Mother’s Tear Gorget encapsulates the essence of this journey, particularly focusing on the steadfast love and strength of Cherokee mothers.

Handcrafted Artistry In our studio, every Mother’s Tear Gorget is crafted by hand. Each piece is cut, shaped and hammered. We pour our heart and skill into each Mother's Tear Gorget , making sure it's as unique as the history it represents. Merging traditional elements with modern craftsmanship, this gorget embodies both the pain and resilience of the Cherokee spirit.

A Symbol of Elegance and Strength Our commitment to creating jewelry that is both significant and wearable is echoed in the Mother’s Tear Gorget. Cynthia's insight encapsulates this perfectly: it's noticeable but balanced, striking the right chord between elegance and statement. The earthy tones and lightness make it suitable for various occasions, whether you're dressing up or keeping it casual.
