"Throughout history, daggers have represented bravery, perseverance, and courage. I love their graceful, elongated forms as well as their history, symbolism, and lore. I identify with them as inspiration for artistic interpretation. I chose a sleek, tapered onyx baguette for the blade because it's a stone of protection. This charm is striking enough to stand alone as a petite pendant, but also looks beautiful with other charms."
