Two sterling drops hang in tandem and fit nicely into one another. With the feel of an artifact, the goddess-like image is carved in relief on the front pendant. On the back piece, Adrienne Rich’s stunning phrase: "The moment of change is the only poem."

Madam Justice is a blended interpretation of several mythological goddesses who embody fair and equal administration of the law, without corruption, greed, or prejudice. Symbolizing the protection of individuals and the keeping of social and political order, and paired with the powerful and distinctly independent voice of Adrienne Rich, this is a collaborative celebration of womanly beauty, judicial morality, and freedom of choice – a personal gift for law retirement or a commemorative achievement award. As Meghan O’Rourke elegantly writes in a slate.com obituary honoring the life and work of Adrienne Rich, “No American poet has so fully created a body of work constellated around the notion that change is essential to being free.”
