A testament to the Catholic identity at Bishop Moore Catholic, the tradition of “carrying rocks” is among the most powerful of the stories coming from this community. This design continues this powerful story, reminding students that they once carried one another. Reminding us all that we were once carried. And at the same time echoing the statements of Saint John Paul, II in his encyclical “Veritatatis Splendor,” that: “man is capable of giving his life direction...with the help of grace,” (67). The pendant of a cross with rocks stacked beneath it will serve as a keepsake of Bishop Moore Catholic and also a sacramental reinforcing the ideals and gospel values of the Church. Designed with an athlete in mind to be worn daily.
Each piece of 31four, Artisan Jewelry is prayerfully handcrafted in sterling silver or 14 karat yellow gold. Instead of sending our designs overseas or to wholesale jewelry manufacturers, as a company we choose to create each piece ourselves, by hand. That means each piece will be unique, with different features that tell the story of its creation, no two alike. We believe that the tiny unique characteristics and imperfections make us even more beautiful in the eyes of our creator. Our artwork reflects this belief.
