Memorial Pendants

After the devastating accident on September 5, Chris & I were asked if we could design a memorial pendant for a fundraiser for the families of the victims.  To help the kids get through the week during the funerals, the school came up with this design and it was used on football helmets, volleyball & softball jerseys, and cross country uniforms.
We used this as the premise for our design.

We used 4 crosses from Tierracast and with them being graduated in size, they hang together like the memorial design.  We also wanted to represent the individuals lost, so we designated each a special cross.

The individual cross photo shows which cross is for each person.
Here is why we chose what we did:

Caroline, small and delicate since she was the youngest and smallest.

Dustin, Celtic because he was more artistic and a free spirit.

Travis, simple and rugged for a farming guy, a bit larger since he was older than Dustin.

Marla, floral since she loved gardening, about the same size as Travis's maybe a tiny bit bigger.

All the charms together represent the tragedy as a whole and all those that were involved. 
Orders can be placed until October 8th.  Price, $15 for pendant only, $20 for pendant with necklace chain.  All proceeds are being given to the memorial fund for the families.

If you are interested, just contact me by leaving an email in the comment section, I will email you but not publish your email in the comments.  I will private message with the details.  Thanks!
