Medals: Sterling Silver and 14/20 Gold-fill Post Earrings
How many civilians do you know who have withstood tremendous challenges, raised a child (wait...shouldn't that be included with the challenges?!), selflessly volunteered themselves to fundraising or community building, etc.? Re-purposing existing military medals is called Stolen Valor, so this felt a bit like a balancing act. A way to honor with a symbol of recognition that recalls those who protect our country, while clearly just suggesting having survived 'civilian' challenges.
Sterling Silver and 14/20 Gold-fill, post earrings.
Approximately 1/2" W x 1 1/4" L
