Margaret Cross

BROOKLYN | Margaret Cross crafts fine Mourning Jewelry, Memento Mori, and other sentimental jewels as a way of confronting the intricate interplay of life and death. Spurred by her own personal tragedy she found solace, as many artists do, in creating and expressing through object what cannot be expressed in words. This expression led her to connection with others who also were learning to live in grief, and it became obvious the healing power people can get from forming affinity with these talisman. Embracing the impermanence of life can allow us to live more fully and these symbols can serve as lovely reminders--and keeps us connected to anyone, anything, we may have lost along the way.
