Pendant Project: My Journey to Awareness through Art - by Vicki Jurica, EGCMethod Certification Program Graduate
It started as a simple project; create one pendant piece of jewelry every day for a year. But when Thurston Gray decided to create a visual representation of an emotion she felt each day and journal her thoughts, that's when her healing manifested. After being raped in college, Thurston tucked the mental, spiritual and emotional wounds aside. Even after starting therapy, she still found herself disconnected from her emotions. The Pendant Project challenged Thurston to identify and acknowledge her feelings every, single day.
