Holding Hands Necklace by Claire Sommers Buck
The Holding Hands necklace design was influenced by both the big chunky beads Frida Kahlo frequently wore and the theme of duality that radiated through Frida’s life & work. Frida’s mixed heritage carried a weight in post-revolutionary Mexico and like many she struggled with her identity. Many of her paintings reflected a constant dialogue between her two Fridas, embracing each side with strength, determination and passion. Whatever identities you struggle with, this necklace is a reminder to hold the other’s hand, as both parts make your whole and that is a beautiful and wonderful thing.
